The new system requires dilithium in order to "craft" your items.

Often OBSCENE amounts of dilithium.

THye've taken out the primary sources of dilithium and moved some rewards to content that NO ONE played.

Once people start to migrate to those sources, they'll change it again.

All to make players BUY dilithium via the Zen conversion. I'm still certain that Cryptic/PWE are dumping Dilithium into the exchange to keep the levels up. WIth fleets CRANKING out project and the new systems going into effect active end game players are all using their dilithium. Sure there are those that aren't in fleets but the sheer volume of dilthium on the exchange can't be just from those players.
