Hi guys,

didn't I see it or do we not have a commendation for completing tier 5 on ALL reputations?
Why not? Its not that easy to fulfill and takes a lot of time?
We do not because new reputations are always being added. It would be unfair, for example, if one person earned it when there were only 5 reps and another had to earn it when there are 10.

I totally understand your point.
But there are eight different reputations which won't be removed. And to fill eight different reputations takes a looooong time and a LOT of PVE Queues. Don't you think it might be time to create a first commendation to honor these efforts? It will have room to improve later.

For example there is the Chief Instructor for one specialization. the senior chief instructor for two and the master chief instructor for three. Wouldn't it make sense to create now a "chief Reputation Specialist" for - lets say - four filled tier 5's and a "senior chief reputation specialist" for eight?
Or (if this is too easy) just start right now with all eight filled tier 5 as a "Chief Rep Specialist" and then we have a look later this year if there might be enough new reputations to creat the next commendation?

It would leave room for improvement because we can create the next step of commendation, IF there will be enough and more reputation fields.
You know what I mean?
We don't have the war games commendations any more and a lot of commendations are hard to get (all admiral commendations and some historical figure commendations). So it would give even more motivation to especially captains and fleet captains to involve themselves even more with many things in the fleet.

Just an example - i live in a different timezone than most of the players here and the commendations motivated me a lot to do more with the fleet although its hard for me to find fleet teams due to the timezone. It is possible - yes - but hard. And commendations played a big role for me.

A reputation commendation would give another entry to commendation system here at STOA without the needs of teams. But it will lead to:
- fleet chats regarding rep commendation (which rep is best to do first, etc)
- fleet members developing more (there are fleet members playing here for a LONG time who didn't had even one of Ico, omega, mako, nukara sets!!!)
- better equipped members for fleet teams in general (if everybody would have Ico, Omega or Maco - then "into the hive" would work better for STOA Elite Ground Team xD)

just a few examples for improvements, there might be more. It's just a suggestion, there are commendations for a lot of things. For me, the reputation system plays a major role in this game, because the benefits are really needed for a lot of things. So I was irritated that there hasn't been a commendation for one of the more important things in the game. In the past this might have been too early, but now may be the time for such a commendation with eight different trees yet.
I appreciate the suggestion. If we decide to add additional commendation this could be one of them; however the other Admirals and myself agreed not too long ago that we won't add more commendations. There are plenty of ways to earn enough for a promotion.

The main point also about the specialisations is they allow the ability to craft skills that fleet members can use. Reputations to not facilitate the use of shared resources

Jonas, these are just my 2 cents to this:

We have currently 35 achievable Fleet Commendations. 26 of those are recognizing personal performance / achievements. Don't you think, that is sufficient for the time being? Wink
xD TP - it was absolutely no offense or critic. Yes, there are a lot of commendations! And exactly that was the reason for my question. I achieved several targets in the game and for nearly every big target there is a commendation. So when I finished tier 5 reps I was wondering why there are commendations for so many things but not for this one although it's an important step in the game. Wink that was the reason for my suggestion, but I totally understand what attilio said.

(By the way I had a hard laugh when I saw that my spelling correction on the mobile changed "attilio" to " a tulip".)

Jens, it's a good idea, and i've even thought about it myself, but we've got a lot of ways to earn promotions, some of them not too hard to get to fleet captain, but some of them quite hard in order to prove commitment and leadership qualities. 

A lot of people already have T5 reputation, and so essentially we would be handing out a free commendation to a lot of people.

Jonas, this is a little off topic and I am just replying to the quoted selection. I have 14 toons and they are all t5 rep with the exception of the last 2. They do have the marks already for t5 just getting together the sponsorship tokens. Anyway my point is there is really no need to run stf's to get marks for rep anymore. On at least 10 of those toons they never even stepped foot in a PVE q. There are enough events that happened the award marks of your choice and faction specific dailies that you can do that the need for PVE q are not really necessary anymore. I believe this is a good thing because one should always do PVE q because they like to not because they are forced to.  Another example I can give. I got my complete Iconian set with just a handful of GGA's. Sure it may have taken a few weeks but I didn't mind waiting that long long
