I can choose to walk away from the new STF reputation system, it's not so easy with the crafting system because I can't sell my accumulated skills, and I sometimes need to craft an oddball piece for a particular mission. It's won't be fun if I gotta pay 10's of thousands in ec and dilith for the 'right' to make a 500ec piece of gear.
In the case of STFs, the systems team seemed adamant that collecting gear pre-S7 was not a progression system and that there was nothing TO grandfather.
However, the existing crafting is explicitly a progression system. And should be grandfathered.
And existing crafting ALREADY costs dilithium so it's not like they'd ruin it by adding dilithium costs. At least, they'd really have to TRY to ruin it further.
