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.

Edit:

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!
It will be 5 Elite marks per Mk12 Maco/Omega/KHG item. This was confirmed to be by Borticus, but as they always say, could be subject to change..

Ok maybe I'm just not doing something right here, or I'm just an idiot lol. Is the new sector block even open yet?

The tholian ships are knocking weapons offline but the redmatter battery is not restoring them. Only a weapon battery will put them back online. Fun to run tino a group of 5+ ships and have your weapons be offline for 20-30 seconds. It even takes out torps and mines, even though they don't use any weapon power.

Did not see it mentioned but the chat now changes your default channel to the last channel you did a / command for. Type "/team hey all" and your default chat gets set to team. Type "/zone hello?" and your default chat gets set to /zone. Its a bit annoying and I'm sure it will lead to a LOT of mistells. Took me a couple of minutes before I realized why it was changing and starting doing some tests.

A few Questions: What happens to the old STF stuff(like EDC Salvage Tech) there is now no way to redeem this even into dilithium it also cant be uses in the Rep System.

A Stf on Elite with optional gives 20 Marks+ 1 Elite Mark.

A Stf on Normal with optional gives 15 Marks.

Didnt the notes say the Elite amount is 3 Times larger?

Some of the changes I've seen on Tribble so far are good:
- Making the assimilated Set a 3 part set is good - no more almost unkillable ships with 3 part assimilated bonus and MACO-/KHG-Shield,
- New STF-gear with more set bonuses (assimilated console + cutting beam and plasma torpedoes will be nice), but did you think about the total boost it would grant you? +15 Weapon Power turns a Cruiser almost into an Escort! If you redirect all that weapon-power that you don't need, is the Escort then the upcoming shield tank?

Other changes (the reputation system) won't be so good:
- Did you think about the mission "Join Taskforce Omega"? Will it grant you all the Omega-Marks you need to get the first item from the new STF-Store?!? I can almost see people using standard issue Phaser Stun Pistols in their first STF-runs... Or will you be forced to farm Defera until you've reached Tier 1 in the Omega-Reputation? That would lead to people using melee-weapons in STFs, since nobody reads the comments Captain Kazima makes on remodulation.
- More Dilithium needed to get good gear. It's not just Dilithium, it's also time, since you first need to unlock the corresponding Reputation Tier to get a weapon or anything else from the current STF-Store (Omega Pavillion on DS9).
- What is about the "lost STF" - "Terradome"? It's not Borg-Stuff, but STFs were never supposed to be only Borg-Stuff... Remastering (and Bug-fixing) it would give us one more way to earn Omega-Marks and Dilithium (I don't say ore, give us refined Dilithium for this!).
- What is about recruiting DOFFs? We need a lot of DOFFs to contribute to Fleet-Projects at the moment, when we need to contribute DOFFs to the Romulans, we will need another way to recruit more. Or do you expect us to use Fleet-DOFFs on the new Reputation-System?

If the Elite-Mark is worth 25 Omega-Marks, then it is correct...

Uh, I doubt ANY T5 ship has only an Ensign Engineer with no other abilities. I use ET1 and RSP1 on my Defiant.
