Here's something interesting: it should take four (4) hours to get 8000 Dilithium, according to this blog. Even at paying only 25 Dilithium per Z point, that gives you 320 Zen. So for four hours of work, you get $3.20 (and per the quotes below, doing things solely for dilithium and not for the fun of playing, is not a game, it is work). That's pretty far below minimum wage. Just saying.

If the devs want us to spend more time in the game, give us more stuff to do, don't artificially time gate gear.


Have to agree with the quotes below.

We all have kids and jobs and don't have the time to invest. Making us work harder for things isn't going to make us play more, its going to drive us away from the game.

I really, really hate that mentality of game designers. It's a GAME, not a job.

What really boggles the mind is this:


Most players DON'T convert very much dilithium. So you're going to make it HARDER to get it? Why? How does that make any sense what so ever?

I hate conspiracy theories but those that claim this is just a scam to get us to buy Dilithium with Zen don't sound so crazy now.
