I can explain in more detail why this makes the common doff singles on the starbase completely redundant, frivolous, wasteful, meaningless, and several other things.
If the devs, or the company in general thinks this is working as intended then they should explain just exactly what the heck the intent was for making common doff singles available through the fleet system. They made doffs into a psuedo currency and now you can buy a form of that currency but you can't use that currency without first going back to the academy and mucking about with them to get all of them reassigned. That is assuming you can even use those officers for the personnel exchange submissions.
THAT IS A TERRIBLE DESIGN DECISION! I don't want them to defend the decision, I want them to explain the intent behind this change though. I mean, unless it was something like "We just wanted to confuse and frustrate a good portion of our userbase by doing this" then I don't understand exactly what their intent could possibly be.
