To everyone - slow down and back off (some)...

Listen to the man, even a little. He said, for whatever reason, that a goal of some of these changes is to make the game like most every other MMO out there, in which outfitting a "main" toon is a multi-month project.

He also claims that the "value" of the recruitment DOff pack (nigh free) does not match up with the value of the C-store pack, or even the mini-packs from lockboxes...

What bugs me in all this is the perceived hypocrisy. They "price" a high-end STF set at 30 days of Dil farming, but the earnings rate is (was) geared for 4+ hours/day of nothing but dil farming. Especially in a world where "average" players only play 3.5 hours/day.

Devs want to encourage the playing of varied types of content - does help the grindy feeling go away some. However, the kneejerk reaction to our complaints puts E-STFs back front-and-center as the most rewarding method of Dil farming, and nothing else even comes close, and they want to tie up all our time in 3 months with dil farming, not fleet mark acquisition, not getting other gear for our toons, nothing but farming to kit out our toon.

The wait of 3-4 days between one free DOff packs is not comprable to the instant value of getting (potentially multiple) DOff pack(s) off the C-store for $2.75 each. No, they need to make it longer between packs and add a Dilithium cost. Yet, every other DOff recruitment out there is still free, even though they only give 1-2 DOffs per mission...

Nevermind the pure hypocrisy of trying to vary content, by shoehorning us into "Cryptic Select Missions"...

You gave us some of your overall plans. Thank you for that. Next time, make your actions back up what you've laid out in plans...
Well, with the upgrade announcement leaving NX and Connie fans in the dust again, can we restart / revisit the T5 Connie and NX threads - since they will no longer be "truly" endgame ships... (after we get the T5 versions, it'll be time to see them added to the T5U upgrade charts too...
