From what my team tested tonight dil rewards are 480 normal 960 elite
I don't know about anyone else, but I find this to be a MUCH more palatable compromise. If this is the direction moving forward, kudos to the devs for listening to feedback regarding the 240/480 original design.
Now, if we can just convince you to lower the dilithium cost on the doff-grinder (even double the current rates would be fine), I think you'll have a patch that (most) everyone will love!
Yeah, that's when they say you start getting that ability.
Currently, i'm sitting on about 154,963 dilithium in STF loot on my main alone, is there any word on when the conversion will be hitting tribble? The reputation system is already there, but everything in my bank is still in there. also, when it does hit, would it be possible to tell us the amount on conversion instead of leaving it a secret until we open the box?

Reason: had to actually do that math on it.
dont you have to reach teir 5 in the rep system to trade in marks for dilithium ?
The conversion project is in the upgrade section of the list and is available at tier 0. It requires 5 of the elite drops and rewards 1000 dilithium and requires 15 seconds to run. Since its in the upgrade list it will not interfere with your main reputation projects, most of the time the upgrade slot should be empty.
This means that an elite run will result is 1160 dilithum average after 5 runs. The drop is only on elite though so normal will probably end up being 480 only. I did not see any way to trade normal marks for dilithum.
There is NO additional drop besides the marks and elite drop. No loot bags either, regardless of getting the optional. It kind of kills the anticipation of finding out what you will get. Felt a bit like a let down after it was over.
I just logged in to Tribble to check one specific item..
Apparently the conversion of existing omega force standing has not been implemented.
My lead character on the test server has got a whole lot of Omega force gear.
If I may suggest..
Put a trade in vendor where players can trade in existing Omega, KHG, MACO sets and pieces for a refund of marks plus dilithium (seeing Dilithium is required to advance in the Omega force tiers) and parse accolades for existing Omega related accolades and titles for a award of Omega rep so we who have run hundreds of STF's don't have to do it all over again from scratch?
It seems a lovely system on par with the way the fleet starbase system works and all, but I would like some sort of head start into the new system.
