This is what I always thought was strange about the random doff reward tables.

It seems as though when you pick the system rolls like this:

A roll for Specialization
A roll for a specific doff.

Rather than say like this:

A roll for Department
A roll for Specialization
A roll for a specific doff

In the above you would have an equal (1/6) chance of getting a specific Department. Then you would have an equal chance of the specialization.

Under the old cost and reward structure this is something we could live with and accept. However, I just think with the recent increases on doff costs in the system is no longer in balance with how they are now distributed. I still firmly hold that the massive increases in dilithium costs and the drastic reduction in dilithium reward for doffs has ruined the fundamentals of the system for many. I am also not the only one as disappointed with that direction nor alone in that opinion.
