"Improved from nothing, but less than currently given."

I think that sums it up nicely!

If someone else had a look at the almost endless discussion to the latest dev-blog, he/she could have found the answere:

- Fleet Actions now reward 960 Dilithium (1st place Gold gets 2x this = 1920 Dilithium)

In Season 7, Fleet Actions will now become the best source of Dilithium between the two types of Events.

In addition Fleet Actions will now have better rewards in general
Gold = Purple + 1920 Dilithium
Silver = Purple + 960 Dilithium
Bronze = Blue + 960 Dilithium
All others = Green + 960 Dilithium

In addition, at max level in the Omega Fleet a repetable project unlocks that converts Omega Marks to Dilithium at a rate of 50 marks to 500 dilithium or thereabouts.

The new Red Alert daily in the New Romulus Sector also rewards 480 Dilithium in addition to Rom marks.

All of this could change before Season 7 hits, but that is what the current plan is.
So, increased rewards for Fleet-Actions is a correct statement, decreased reward for doing STFs is something that you will read in one of the next Tribble-Patch-Notes.

If Star Trek Online was an Open-Source (GPL) Game, we would have a low-grind fork.

So if you want dil, you can only play tac escort for a shot at 1st place.

Another reason NOT to play anything other than that.

Go go chinese farmer boys!

The more of s7 that gets announced the worse it freaking gets.

Oww, thats rather painful news you drastically increased the rate of Dilithium use for s7 and not just a liitle increased but massive amount of new drain and severely reduced the ability to generate it. Not that the one thousand and some every stf was all that fast once you got the cooldowns involved.

I really really hope you give us something of a boost somewhere as all you have done in s7 is take dilithium reward amounts down and distributed them over a larger mission amount.

With this new system I would probably generate enough with my current play style to only pay for my duty officer upgrades at the academy. which is bad for you as I use to contribute a bit to the starbase and basically convert the rest into Zen through the exchange. Thats now less zen that will be taken out of circulation due to a shortage of dil.
