# 1 Rear Admiral grindfest = FAIL
10-11-2011, 02:04 PM
I decided to give the discount tokens they put in for new ships at rank up a chance, and this is what i arrived at.

New Ship at Commander was tolerable.
New Ship at Captain was annoying.
New Ship at Rear Admiral Lower Half was bloody intolerable and FAIL required me to get 10k more dilithium.

Yay I ranked up to Rear Admiral 1, cool give me my ship so i can continue playing and leveling... wtf? you mean i not only have to grind for HOURS to get enough dilithium? I also have to wait an entire DAY or MORE because i can only refine 8k dilithium a day?
Yeah.... its total BS.

Now when I play casually I usually only do a couple of dailies a day and a few other activities, that means the time it would take me to get a new ship would be anywhere from a few days to a BLOODY WEEK
A week of my time wasted on a grind, no story progression, no leveling, nothing but a grind in a gimped ship!
I also hate being forced to grind, i hate exploration and i hate 75% of the REPETITIVE dailies.
GIVE US BACK OUR FREE SHIP TOKENS ALREADY!

Seriously, this nonsense has to stop already, with this the game is no longer FUN.
Either put back the free ship tokens or drasticly raise the refinement cap and make ALL missions give dilithium.

they wont do that because soon they will have c-store ships at every level. You will be given a choice: grind for a week or spend $ at the c-store

Yeah, but remember, that does not work, because the C-Store ships don't allow you to complete the promotion missions.

I had zero issue getting my ship at RALH, personally. I even had several thousand dilithium left over too.

Still could do with more dilithium though, obviously.

You guys are wrong I'm sorry to say and not paying attention. I got a Feddy commander sitting on 50k Dilithium right now. Go do your daylies. DO you academy stuff, and do your exploration DOFF missions. .. for that matter, just go do your DOFF missions. Now my Fed VA is Borked because she was my first toon. I want to send all her DOFF's off to the commnader and delete her to restart her. Made a bunch of mistakes when I created her, and made VA before the first patch was out. I have no idea why theres not more VA's running around.


quit grip'n and get to mov'n.. Ya know, it could be worse, you could be playing KDF..

oh wait..

I'm being mean..*sigh!*

My KDF is LT General and is flyng the Vorcha retrofit., and all of the ship weapons areMk XI Purples, with Mk XI Blue consoles..And the full Aegis set.... Crafting ya know... Kinda hoping that the next C-store stipernd is nuff to get the Vorcha refit if its made availible next patch.. if its not I'll prolly blow it on the KDF Academy uniform pack and more DOFF packs.
And my ground combat gear is also all Purples.. Just started doing STF's today... now THATS grinding.. gonna puruse the forums and see what the low down is on getting the elite gear.. its NOT obvious and i want the KDF Honor Guard set so bad I can taste it. both space and ground.. Not seeing the right kind of Salvage drop and I want to know why. And if a crummy old non "leet" ROLEPLAYER like me can do it... then it should be aesy mode for you leet types..

Did you try buying one through the ship requisitions officer? That should work.

Everyone knows that getting refined dilithiums for missions is a bug right? According to devs, we are supposed to be getting Dilithium ORE which we can turn into refined dilithium (limit 8,000 per day). Only way in the future to get refined dilithium is to rank up or refine the ore.

It's a nice bug. Too bad it won't last.
