Here is my conversion after I transferred to tribble.

On Holodeck I had:

Merits: 266595
Marks of Exploration: 211
Medal of Excellence: 2079
Medal of Achievement: 18

Badges of Exploration:
5th: 4783
4th: 5700
3rd: 2850
2nd: 1950
1st: 5775

Emblems: 586

I also still had my VA token.

On Tribble I had:
334168 Refined Dilithium
174168 Ore

I no longer had my VA token.

I am not sure if the token was converted into Dilithium or if it was just an error.

1.3 is not unreasonable... Playing since headstart, having completed all new content fairly fast, leveld to cap fast... Trust me... it will give you MORE than enough time to accumulate that amount. and then some if you don't respec often.

Without going into too many details here is the conversion on my main character:

Holodeck Stats:

Mark of Honor: 0
Mark of Exploration: 23
Mark of Valor: 35
Medal of Excellence: 2621
Medal of Distinction: 0
Medal of Commendation: 0
Medal of Bravery: 0
Medal of Achievement: 0
Badge of Exploration, 5th Order: 750
Badge of Exploration, 4th Order: 375
Badge of Exploration, 3rd Order: 450
Badge of Exploration, 2nd Order: 235
Badge of Exploration, 1st Order: 600
Emblems: 578
Merits: 209415


F2P Conversion:

Dilithium Ore: 59,425
Dilithium Refined: 219,425
EC & GPL were 1:1

I'm a full VA with a Level 4 Diplomat. It started me with 23 Doff's and the opportunity to select three more for my LVL 4 Diplomat.

Plain and simple I have to say the conversion stinks. With the time I spent grinding to get the 578 Emblems I have them in case I wanted to change out and completely refit a new ship but there is no way I can do this with this conversion ratio and I think that's a big ripoff.

When you take a Very Rare Dual Phaser Beam Bank Mk X from K-7 that used to cost I believe 54 Emblems and now they cost almost 23K Refined Dilithium the currency conversion is just not fair. If you use a calculator you'd see that my 578 Emblems should have converted to about 242K not 59K Dilithium Ore. I had a feeling we'd take it in the shorts with the currency conversion but this is worse than I expected.

Mark of Valor: 71
Medal of Excellence: 3796
Medal of Distinction: 22
Medal of Commendation: 117
Medal of Bravery: 51
Medal of Achievement: 0
Badge of Exploration, 5th Order: 526
Badge of Exploration, 4th Order: 35
Badge of Exploration, 3rd Order: 25
Badge of Exploration, 2nd Order: 118

I will admit I kind of wonder what some of my other characters will have.. Wish it wasn't only 1 Transfer, but I understand the reasons for it.

Ship Tokens: 1*

(*I think it was the VA token, as I don't remember changing out of my Assault Cruiser until I C-Store purchased my Excel, but Holodeck's display doesn't designate the tier of the Token.)
Couldn't you just check on Holodeck wheter you can buy a VA ship with the token or not? Or have you bought them all already on the Store?

I bet PH has thrown away more emblems than most of us ever acquire.

Really? I would. 5k emblems? I call that unlikely.

Something I forgot to add to my conversion post, is if they are converting some of our old items to Dilithium Ore then they need to do something with the 8K daily limit. 60K Ore would take me 7.5 days to convert it all and that's only if I don't earn any more Ore in those 7.5 days. Why should we even be burdened with conversion limits?

They seem to want to penalize players that have been around awhile that may have stockpiled a few emblems or merits. If this is the way they treat a Life membership or a current subscriber then maybe they want a mass exodus when F2P goes live. There's no incentive for me to continue playing with these conversion ratios.

If you're a subscriber, then you are a bad person.. This should be obvious by now.
