The economy of Tribble is separate from Holodeck. It would give you a unfair advantage as a player to be able to earn Dilithium on Tribble to be able to sell via the Exchange on Holodeck for C-Points. Tribble is a testing ground with the variables tweaked. There are times when you can earn thing on Tribble faster than on Holodeck. Trust me it is working as intended by Cryptic and PW.
im unable to BUY cryptic points on tribble ( the test server) WITH dilithium (on tribble..the DOH test server) WITH any of my COPIED CHARACTERS from holodeck...the DIL EXCHANGE is disabled for weeks now i keep trying its still offline....wtf is up with that thats what im asking i need to test ..and i cant because i cant buy cp from the tribble dil exchange ..if theres any other way to earn CP on tribble please let me know whoever replies.
is my account bugged? is soemthign that broken? wtf is happening
also i wasnt aware that im not allowed to send items via the mail on tribble to any of my other characters on tribble ...somethign is really fubar here.
The Dilithium exchange is not meant to work on Tribble - it will screw the economy on Holodeck and the C-Store.
I have a character with 100,000 Dilithium on Holodeck.
Transfer Character to Tribble
Trade 100,000 dilithium for C-Store Points
Delete Character from Tribble
.... start again at step 1.
This would provide an endless supply of Dilithium to trade for C-Store Points.
It's a TEST server.
How are we supposed to TEST stuff if we can't buy said stuff?
Which brings up another interesting question: Why wasn't the last 3 new ships (3 at least) available for testing or even to BUY from the Cash-Store on Tribble so that we could actually, I don't know, maybe TEST them on the TEST server?
