How about this. For completing Tier 5 we get a discount on ONE STF set?
If you want to buy more keep the dilithium price we have now. Would that be fair?

Agreed. Time will tell how livable it really is, but I am cautiously optimistic. At least, as someone above said, Cryptic has shown they are listening to our concerns....Thank you!

I may have missed something somewhere but my odyssey science variant cruiser just gained a couple of extra ensign science boff stations.

There are many more dilithium sinks in season 7, and the stfs are having the dilithium rewards reduced, but still the 8k refinement limit is growing prohibitive with all these sinks.

They need to drop the dilithium costs significantly, and raise the (romulan/omega) mark and neural processor amounts to compensate yes the mk 11s in the dilithium store are 22k... but these mk 12s are over 10k higher and require a lot more effort than just the dilithium to get.
yeah but still power would cost u only 600 zen and thets 6$ try other pwe game and see how much realy power is worth 25k$+ mostly u will need for close to ultimate power there or even 40k+ for ultimate power and thet 6$ for power here dont look like much then

Dude, you make a over 1100 dil per STF run. Adding dil costs to the STF gear makes sense since people (me included) were definitely farming the hell out of getting what were essentially free STF gear sets while generating gobs of dil because of having to grind out STFs waiting for the prototype drops. On holodeck right now once you've gotten your Mk XI gear, you're handing in all your EDCs and salvage for dil, and it just keeps rolling in especially as you grind for the Mk XII sets. Once you're done gearing the generic borg Mk XII you'll start handing in the prototype salvage for dil. The current scheme just changes the slope of the dil gain curve. Once you obtain your gear, you can still run missions to generate dil (which is what we do are doing now anyway). Of course the number of STF runners continued to decline due to satiation when it took too long to get the Mk XII gear, and Cryptic had to do something to get people back into running STFs where the time it takes to get Mk XII was more deterministic.

8K dil gate is a time gate. Otherwise you'd all be gazillionaires with your high tiered crafting T5 SBs and purple doffs. Asking about the 8k dil gate is like asking CCP why training Battleship V in Eve takes 30 days of real time.

Wow, so now we only need white duffs and only departemental ones? And up to now it was such a grind? Those who haven't started a fleet yet, start one now. This is awesome! The best change ever. Actually I wouldn't have minded to put in green, blue or even purrple duffs if they were NOT of a special kind like "transporter officer" or "security officer". Now I can milk even more white duff EC winnings out of the bonus duffs I get (tribble rewards etc.) when I create a new character. Thank you!

And yayness for ITH Space.
