Dilithium should be an optional reward for mission replay
 
I get the idea, I think, of how silver players are supposed to be faced with choices directed at getting them to spend money or time via subbing or buying/grinding dilithium, or buying C-Store ships when they rank up. I think it's sensible.

Still, I think that the 8k per day refinement cap does its job in that regard and that dilithium should be available from more sources.

In particular, I can see why offering dilithium for first runs of missions is a bad idea: the GOAL is for silver players to be a bit short when they rank up.

However, it would all work fine and remain a tradeoff if mission REPLAY offered a dilithium ore container as one of the reward choices for missions.

Players still won't exceed 8k a day and it means foregoing the typical gear rewards from replay to get the dilithium.

It still slows things down but offers players a more entertaining way to get their dilithium.

I agree. I think that episodes should give SOME dilithium rewards, even if it's a smaller scale than the dailies.

agreed story missions and episodes need to give dilithium not much but at least some. couse atm low level players CANNOT get dilithium and gold members who play story mission get nothing more than the meep meepo cryptic tries to say its good.

I agree this would be an improvement and give players options.

This is a good, no... let's say amazing idea.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: if there is going to be a cap on how much you can refine, then EVERY mission should give DL. You cant refine more than the daily cap anyway, so let people earn it in whatever way they enjoy the most rather than forcing them into the same rut every single day.

Agreed!

If the "only" way for me to earn Dilithium is the same dailies, then at the prices currently set for end-game gear, on the present course I'm going to grind myself out of sanity.
