Star Trek online forum is a disaster after season 7...

After the release of season 7 all you can read in the forum is how season 7 is bad and how you strugle to earn dilithium , ec and how hard the STF is.
Why is there no tutorials that will show players how and where to earn ec and dilithium , maybe a new tactic against STF enemy , as well as new builds and what powers are best against them?.
There is soo much posts on this forum against season 7 , we can just rename this STO-forum into I-HATE-SEASON-7-FORUM .

I second this motion

Anyone else think we ought to rename the forums I-HATE-SEASON-7-FORUM?

But seriously - people are still thinking about the changes and still trying to voice their frustrations and concerns. I think they're also waiting to see whether Cryptic is going to do anything to address those concerns.

I'm not crazy about Season 7 - I think it's a step backward and it's Cryptic taking a path that will ultimately drive away a segment of the player base (most notably the long-time lifers or subscribers and the 'hardcore' players).

Maybe that's what they want - time will tell.
Please join our peaceful protest to help make STO a better game

forums are breeding places for complaints. those that enjoy playing are doing so. season 7 is not perfect, but what is? i miss the drops, but enjoy the new content.

apparently pwe does listen to us and they re-instated dilithium in STFs. perhaps other changes will be made too.

agreed OP (got ninja'd DX) i have not seen any way that can be practically used to help S7 other than the STF fixes they did. seems like a lot of people on the forums are so afraid of change and losing their precious exploits for dilith. I wish someone would actually post something that remotely sounded reasonable. but as a whole i love S7 have not done much of New Romulus (in need to fix that by going there and exploring *dons a indy style hat*) and also getting more content pushed through i love the newest STF and the ground one is intense since NOWHERE is safe on that map got tazed multiple times by the floor XD. the artwork is amazing and very romulan. but enough talk *dons a MACO mk XII [flame] and prepares to be flamed*.

Why would anyone want to help anyone in a game where what appears to be the majority of the players feel shafted and have lost interest aswell as the fact that it might be a breech of rules to suggest other more fun games,...

I have posted a few ways to gain these things with the S7 release. They seem to be ignored. One was on Dil and the other on FM. I would be glad to help anyone who is willing to learn, and not whine about everything changing. It's a game, with developers that have their own ideas. Yes it can be frustrating when the changes don't meet our current game play styles, but it also affords up the opportunity to explore more of the game and not just be stuck in STFs, or PVP, or elsewhere. It also affords us the opportunity to stay stuck in our ways and whine about it. Contact me in game @franc275 is you're looking for a Fleet, or just some casual help.

In one word Dilitium. They cut how much you can harvest in a day and they upped the amount needed for the good stuff.

As a breach of rules to suggest playing other games. I'm not breaching that rule, I'm not suggesting anyone should change, on the other hand I am seriously thinking about letting go sto and go Diablo 3.

Dilithium earning wasn't cut, it was normalized. Many of us had been, for a long time, enjoying exploits to earn it much quicker than the devs intended. And we knew it. All of us knew we were circumventing the intent of the system and just hoped Cryptic would keep looking the other way. Now there are no ways to earn it that are substantially faster than others. Does this slow me down? Sure. Is it unfair? No.

Now, as for how to help, I'm still working on that. For the most part, you can do what you used to do, except now there's no more exploits on B'Tran and Officer Reports.

1. Doffs - Load it up with as many missions as you can that grant more than the base 5. Turn over contraband, send off some colonists, rack up as many of the 50 dilithium assignments as you have available. When you log in the next day, scoop up your 3000-3500 dil. Good start.

2. Lore - Click to win 480 Dil.

3. Do an exploration tour - This is pretty quick, and now that B'Tran isn't especially profitable you can just do it anywhere. No need to worry about Borg slowing you down.

4. Starbase 24 and other FAs - Run Starbase 24 every 30 minutes while you do other stuff. Decent groups can plow through pretty quick. I've only rarely had a group that struggled. Other FAs only if you want and you can actually get a group

5. Eta Eridani trilogy and Deferi trilogy - Get practiced and these don't take long.

6. Events - Mine for dilithium only when the event is active. Then theres the big boy: Academy. Get good at the Academy event. You can pull well over 5k dilithium in an hour out of this. It is your bread and butter, do it whenever it comes up.

7. STFs - Done with all that other stuff? Run some STFs then. I always said using STFs as your primary way to get dilithium was silly. There are so many faster and less frustrating ways to do this (unless you run with a group that you know can do them fast). For the most part, getting dilithium on STFs is a bonus/consolation for the fact that they take an investment of time away from doing actual dilithium granting tasks.

Now, all that said, I do wish there were dilithium rewards on just about everything. Even token ones, 240 dil, something. Just so people don't feel so conflicted whenever they run content that doesn't help them reach their 8k cap.
