They specifically chose the TNG/DS9-era Dress Uniform, for the "Diplomat" costume. If they wanted to make a 2409 variant, they are entirely entitled to do so. But don't go using (almosot identical) an existing costume, make a few minor "modifications", and call it a 2409 variant.
Look at the TRUE 2409 uniforms (Antares/Sierra styles, Fleet uniforms, Vice Admiral coats etc), compare their style to the "so-called" 2409 Diplomat style. It's pretty obvious the two styles are ENTIRELY different. Just as any of the Antares/Sierra styles is completely different from any of the TNG/DS9-era styles.
Again 2409!!! NOT TNG/DS9. Cryptic may use everything they want it's there game. And if you want a TNG/DS9 version. Make a forum post about it. But again, just not say the uniform is wrong. It's an updated TNG/DS9 Diplomatic Uniform. with Rank pips of 2409 and badge from 2409.
