They've been planning this change for quite a few months now, all in preparation to SLOW DOWN how much dilithium players can make so that they can't level their bases too fast.

If anything the price will be going up not down, you now need more.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001. If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why. When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
THere's a fleet base mission that requires a good number of COntraband. You jst don't make as much Dilithium per Contraband anymore.
If you are pricing in dilithium, then he is correct, contraband isn't worth as much. Takes 5 contraband (instead of 3) to get 2k dilithium. His contraband has lost value.
