Expertise change: THANK YOU!
 
When I saw the Expertise change in the notes, I was almost giddy with joy.

Thank you so much for changing them. :)

I'd be lying if I didn't say I was happy to turn ~15 million expertise into credits in one swoop. Bulk is the only way that stuff is valuable. Even though I had to turn around and spend all of it on mine provisions :(

There was one too many zeros in the amount of expertise needed for the Tier III Dilithium Mine and Embassy upgrades. As such, players needed 25 Million Expertise instead of 2.5 Million. It takes an average player two years to earn 25M Expertise, assuming they aren't heavy duty officer system users. As such it would take small fleets a very long time to kick off those projects. The November 26th tribble patch fixed that small typo with a huge impact.

Boo, how am I going to get rid of this stuff now? I liked being able to cash out 25M of the stuff in one swoop.

You have a week to find a fleet and dump the Expertise, I'm sure there is at least one fleet out there in need of a donation.

Indeed. Besides, this is still only a Tribble patch so far. Got at least until next week before it hits Holodeck.

Oh... I was hoping the expertise you keep getting after you reach level cap could be turned into EC or Fleet Marks or something.

But this is good if you're not me. Congrats.

I'm still waiting for the 1 to 1 conversion of expertise to dilithium. Make it happen Cryptic! :cool:

Great idea, I have 20 million expertise just lying around. I'd love to have such a rewarding conversion.
