We really need to get away from the perception that everyone in the game are EC Millionaires; they're not. Must of us forum guys are, but not everyone is. EC would be a perfectly fine gate.

Again, the big problems here in S7, simply put, is that there are now Dilithium inputs where A) They weren't before B) That are recockulously high and C) Entirely gratuitous.
100,000 EC is a drop in the bucket for a VA man. Just 1 Tour the Galaxy race, you can easily earn around 1 million EC, 2 if you're good.

The reason why Cryptic won't use EC is because Dilithum is the Time Currency, which you can legally purchase (providing convert to Zen and then to Dilithium).

And honestly, I think that is their goal. To "encourage" players to buy Dilithum with Zen.
