So true and same here, I guess max crafters will be worth more than their weight in gold when ftp goes live!

I think the whole goal is for people to buy a ship with c-store points and then use the free dilithium to gear it up. That's why they are making all these low level plus one ships and not giving enough dilithium to buy the standard ones. Because it's easier to just buy the ship then have to grind up to get it and then spend even more time grinding up to gear it up.

But if you watched the STOked interview with the people at Cryptic you will understand what they are trying to do. Yes its a pain but you will be able to trade dilithium so you can still get your stuff

I 100% agree, but thats not fair on gold subbers and lifers. Why should they pay more out when they allready pay to play?

They should rename Star Trek Online to Ferenginar Online. 8000 refined dilithium ore is not enough. All exploration missions are dailies? lol Wow... this game is going to beat SWG on the fail-o-meter if this goes live.

then the price of everything that costs dilithium needs to be 1/10 what it is now, and ships need to cost energy credits again. the current dilithium price for everything is literally 10 times to expensive, its mind boggling how off this is.

what the hell does that mean?! did you removed merits and not replace them with anything? SERIOUSLY? i don't even think this build is playable! i guess i can buy bridge officers for training to get the powers i want, but how the hell am i going to level the skill up to 9 so their cooldowns arn't minutes longer then they should be?

I think raising the cap to 75,000 would work out. That way we can still get our gear without having to Convert ore for years.

Um, the Tribble server IS the F2P Beta server. Redshirt is the name of the current 'normal' public test server and Holodeck is the name of STO' Live (main) server.

  • You may process up to 8,000 ore into refined dilithium each day.
Isn't the purpose of this Dilithium economy to simplify the currency system? How does this serve that goal? Why is there an obscenely low limit on being able to refine?

Why are you penalizing players who'd rather grind in bulk, rather than spend an hour every day doing tedious tasks like this?
