If you want the 1440 Dilithium from the Foundry daily - you must play a Foundry mission that "qualifies" - meaning it has to be at least 15 minutes of gameplay.
We've held off on making this change in the hopes that players would police the simple missions and have them removed - but it just didn't happen.
If we had a better solution for the Foundry daily, we would go with it - but for now - Sorry you have to play at least a 15 minute long mission.
We will look into increasing the reward if the average length of Foundry missions that players are playing is greater than 15 minutes - but we're waiting to see if players will stop using these missions as an "easy" way to get Dilithium.
Has any consideration been given to exactly why players were using this method to get 1440 Dilithium?
More Dilithium activities or even a small amount of Dilithium on all missions (including Featured Episodes). Maybe a Dilithium event where for a week all story content gives 240 Dilithium per mission?
Any chance of adding a Dilithium Crate (similar to Champions Questonite boxes) to the drop pool for Captains/Battleships/Dreadnoughts? Varying amounts of Dilithium ore in the box of course.
Would there also be a chance to trade in Fleet Credits for Dilithium in the future? Perhaps a Dilithium Mine on an asteroid as a fleet holding with Doff/mark/Commodities inputs that upgrades the Holding and allows for more Dilithium to be mined or some such thing?
