Well last time, they pulled dilithium rewards from STFs right as they added another dilithium cost-heavy grindfest. The forum erupted just like it did this time. Then a couple of weeks later they added Dilithium to Foundry. Then the result was more Dilithium yielded than ever before. Not less... More. The Fleet Marks were a bonus that they never intended to leave. I remember that it was originally planned to be removed. I also remember them announcing that they were leaving it, as I recall, "for now." That indicated right there that it was subject to change.
If they add a fleet mark reward wrapper around PvP engagements and other group-oriented missions that works the way it did on the Foundry, that will solve a lot of the problem right there.
Whatever they do, I figure we'll see it start to balance out in two to three weeks.
I personally want a Star Trek game that is actually Star Trek. On a qualitative level that could be a lot of different things for a lot of different people. But on a quantitative level, if the developers were to watch star trek and make the game like what they see, then at least it will be a shot in the right direction, as far as I am concerned.
