Pretty much changed me from logging in twice a day to logging in when I've nothing better to do. Pushing STO down my priority list means it's not likely to get any discretionary spending from me.
While the dailies might have been a problem for dilithium generation, the blunt act of just canning them while reorganising them has killed me mood to play.
Before anyone chimes in and says "just join a larger fleet, solo play isn't for MMO's" have a think about what's likely to happen if my goal lasting to February is completed effectively instantly. Game over.
The Fleet mark issue needs resolved or Starbases are going to die, either quickly (like mine) or a slow death for intermediate sizes.
Well they have made the small fleet starbase easier in the requirements - just more grinding for the fleet marks. So while it is MUCH cheaper for the small fleets to reach T3 it will take much more time.
The large fleets just keep churming through players - the top people make the grunts contribute then toss them away if they don't.
