That is a valid point and one that I've already talked to the designers about. We may remove the 2x Dilithium for Gold and just give everyone 960 Dilithium.
It is also worth mentioning, the reason why I'm still on this thread is because all of the feedback in this thread is being shared with the designers and the team. When good points and valid concerns are brought up, I'm taking those concerns to the designers and we're discussing it.
That is one of the purposes of this thread - to get immediate feedback as we are implementing the system. Nothing is set in stone in an MMO an we can always adjust. None of this is even live yet, but we do ask that you give it a fair shake once ALL of Season 7 is up on Tribble and we have the Test Weekend. Then you can see how all the economies are updated and make a more valid assessment.
We will then adjust more from there.
I dont' mind first second third being awarded differently, its jsut that Healing needs to count just as much as dps when awarding the places! top spot should be given to those who are the best all around player, dps and survivablilty, not just who's glass gun is bigger.

I Really Do Miss the little TOP Button at the bottom of the threads.
But I would hardly call some of the comments in this thread as feedback, it is more like personal threats or bashing me - to which I say - ok I get it - there is frustration - but the game will go on and we will continue to improve.
The point I'd like to make is: If the proposed changes are generating that much frustration then they are not, in the eyes of the player base, improvements.
I'm sure the game will go on, but whether or not it improves is a subjective opinion. The majority of the players here seem to be stating that they do not see these proposed changes as improvements.
I would re-examine things. Instead of just acknowledging that players are frustrated and saying that the game will go on, I would look into why these so-called improvements are generating this amount of frustration; and see what can be done so that more people actually agree that the changes are improvements.
Wait, so we can't use the stuff we've ALREADY EARNED until we grind to MAX REPUTATION?????!!!!! How freaking long will that take?
If I've already earned something, it is mine to do with as I wish. I should be able to use it whenever I want to. I shouldn't be forced to play more of the same stuff, that I've already played a TON of, to use the items I've already earned.
Just out of curiosity are you every going to fix the bug where a dialogue box conversation de-activates the cloaking device.... its getting rather annoying at times when I get pulled out of cloak cause some breen wants to say something to me or one of my own bridge officers wants to talk to me and it pulls me out of cloak in the MIDDLE of a bunch of hostiles.....
