As far as I could tell, the dilithium reward is guaranteed in FA (but i rarely go below 2nd place so I don't know for certain). The real problem for FA runners is how likely you could get a good EC loot. I'll take dil anytime over EC. There are just many ways to get around that and obtain that missing EC.

I do agree there are bugs in FA but it is the same with STF. Actually I would bet there are more bugs and other issues in STF than in FA: the two most aggravating being AFKers and queuing up and finding yourself in a finished STF with 1hr cool down hehehehe. I have not encountered problems this exasperating in FA before.

Agreed. But I still feel like they're making things harder. If the reputation system doesn't require that many marks to complete projects, I would have preferred things remained the way they were on patch Tuesday.

Edit: Simply because we had a decent dil production potential with FA before the new proposed changes, but they have been significantly NERFED.
STO is the BEST game ever and the players absolutely LOVE it.
