First, you can't do STF and Fleet action at the same time, so to claim that people would get more Dilithium if it remained in STF is bogus, because someone that does an STF doesn't get dilithium from a fleet action and vice versa.
Second, there already IS an 8000 dilithium daily refining cap, so that puts a hard limit on the amount of dilithium that can be injected into the market.
Third, you introduced several new massive dilithium sinks in recent time. The entire fleet starbase system in s6, and now the embassy dilithium sink, the reputation dilithium sink, and the duty officer dilithium sink, all of which remove large amounts of dilithium from the market.
So even if you had left the STF dil rewards the same, you still would have less dil in the market than before S7.
As far as I can see, your "concern" was completely unfounded.
