One thing in common between the various ways to get Dilithium Ore is that they are limited to once-a-day activities or to activities only open during certain hours of the day. This is not accidental. At least for now, we're restricting how much Dilithium Ore players can collect in a single day, and we're splitting it across a variety of activities.
Did you fire the one who thought that this is a good idea? if not you prolly should.
Existing players are probably used to getting a "free ship token" at each rank up. With the new changes, the discount plus the Refined Dilithium award will often not be enough to get a ship. It will be close to enough at the lower ranks, but there will be a larger gap at the higher ranks. We expect that players will need to spend a portion of their time as they level up doing daily missions and other means to acquire Dilithium. If they do so, they should generally have more than enough to acquire a ship at rank-up. If, however, they have not been participating in the daily content, they may find that there is a gap they need to fill.
It's being said that nothing will be taken away from the Subscribers or Lifers who are playing now. But you take away the free Ship at each Rank. So that was another lie that is called transparent Communikation?
Next week, I'll reveal what will happen to existing characters when the F2P build makes its way to Holodeck.
Yeah, really nice to not kill our Weekend with more bad news.
