Fair enough, but before you jump ship, let's wait to see what the explanation is. I'd like to see what their reasoning is too. Is it to prevent some sort of exploit? To me, just as most people in this thread, it seems counter-intuitive to the system. If one wants to submit SB Doffs into SB projects, it seems like it would just be paying for SB projects with...

Oh, I see...

I wonder if the profit in Fleet Marks for submitting an SB Doff > The cost in Fleet Marks for buying the SB Doff in the first place. Yes, if so, that would be a major exploit. Any other work-arounds besides disallowing them from use in SB projects? I'd have to think about that...
a common fleet doff cost 500 fleet creds. Submit him for a project and you earn 150. Not exactly a net gain there leading to an exploit that I see.

And if this is the only reason they did this, then the obvious freaking solution was to raise the cost of the common fleet doff to offset the mark payout if you used it in a project.

Considering the vast majority of Fleet DOFF awarded were spce/ground warfare specialists which aren't useable on projects, this argument really doesn't go anywhere....
