Just ran a normal STF to get some Omega Marks and it went swimmingly and awarded a nice amount of marks, and since I read the patch notes I was expecting the lack of dilithium. On the other hand the lack of a personal loot bag at the end of the match was an unpleasant surprise. Did the same bug/error/whatever that killed the dilithium rewards also kill the loot bags or will they no longer be dropping at all?
They don't drop anymore. After all, the real loot in there was the EDCs and occasional salvage/tech, with nothing more than a bad weapon as a side dish. You're better off without them.
Unless you mean to say you actually used some of that gear/made money on it?
Oh, lovely, I can't even requote the Douglas Adams quote I used to have here I WANT IT BACK!!!!
A token amount of elite marks are required for Mk 12 set gear.
I really hope that by 'token amount', you don't mean your usual 'grind for 40'... With all of these different systems, all requiring different currencies, there simply aren't enough hours in the week to grind them all.
Don't get me wrong, the patch notes sound good and I am excited and very much looking forward to season 7, like I have every season before. I just worry that sometimes what could be great, gets let down by becoming a grind.
Just had a look at the system and my god, I was right, more grind. Not only more grind, but another thing that wants Dilithium on top of the other marks. Perhaps now would be a good time to revise your 8,000 a day limit considering between fleet starbases, now embassies too, plus Romulan and Omega Reputation projects... 8,000 a day gets you no where.
I love this game, have since the beta even though most of my friends have stopped playing because of it turning into a grind machine, but seriously can you stop making every exciting new thing a total nightmare to get anywhere with!
Join date is wrong, I've actually been around since Beta.

Hey ZEROCOOL the new release Notes made it sound like we'd be getting Omega and Romulan marks upon completion but I've just finished into the Hive and no MARKS. NOT COOL. we trekkies don't grind for free yuh know. How am I to test out the new Reputation system If I don't get the required marks??
Oh wait just saw the part about not being turned on for some of the New area's NEVER MIND"
