All this talk of 'in-game methods of aquisition' has just turned into 'we take someone elses money instead of yours'.

B to the S
You missed the part about it being a "time" currancy. Seems Dilithium gonna be a STO version of EvE's PLEXs.


At least in EvE you may be able to blow someone else's pay to win gear up and get it in a drop. It wouldn't be that much different than people hi sec suiciding high end gear in EvE, or the old goon swarm of T1 ships, etc. Also, w/plexing et al there already is a bit of pay to win. The source of the gear is just baught from other players instead of Cryptic.
