Only receiving Fleet Marks as a reward for the invasion is tied to an event.

Way to go Cryptic, you create something good, then ruin it by pulling a BS stunt like this.

Yet again it's one step forward, two steps back.

WHY are you time-gating Fleet Mark acquisition?! Aren't the hard time gates in the fleet advancement system enough? Is the seven month minimum it will take the largest, most loyal and dedicated fleets to reach Tier 5 now suddenly too soon?

Not to mention that even when a Starbase has unlocked stores, additional projects need to be set up to Provision items for said stores, and allow fleet members to contribute their fleet marks and earn fleet credits.

WHY the sudden need to restrict Fleet Mark acquisition?! Is this a recent decision? or has it been in place since the fleet advancement system was designed? you just chose to implement it at the eleventh hour? to minimise the criticism you knew it would cause?

Stunts like this make people question your actions/inactions past, present, and future. It sets a precedent, where people will scrutinise and second-guess everything you do, looking for the catch, the thorn, the thing that makes it too good to be true.

Keep it up, and you'll end up with players who daren't get excited about anything you do, for fear of disappointment.

Disclaimer; This post is not directed at you Zero, but the people within Cryptic/PWE who make decisions like this, who seem to underestimate the intelligence of the playerbase and Star Trek community.
