So instead of using your earned dilithium
On your starbase project you use it to
Upgrade unused doffs you had just bought
For the starbase project

Effectively stalling upgrading the starbase

I think that is

Working as intended

Jellico....Engineer ground.....Da'val Romulan space Sci
Saphire.. Science ground......Ko'el Romulan space Tac
Leva........Tactical ground.....Koj Romulan space Eng

Easy to say if you are in a large fleet and people contribute a little at a time than a person that pays the bills by himself.


Even if Borticus reduced the DOFF Cost by 50% for Starbase Projects, these DOFF Dilithum charges HURT. Players no longer can shuffle DOFFs (between common and uncommon) to get the right DOFFS they need for the Starbases.


Cryptic better get on the ball, or else Fleets will stop working on their Starbases.

Really 5k for 1 Bleeding doff? Really? Who's the Genius that thought this was A good idea.

As an indirect way of seeing it, Cryptic really does HATE small fleets.

I'm just going to put my vote out there (THIS IS A STUPID MOVE). DOFFing is one of the few things I still log on for. This will change that. I am not sure I can justify spending any more $ on this game. There are already enough grinds.

@PWE/CRYPTIC: RETHINK YOUR STRATEGY!

I don't know if a large fleet like the one I am part
Of will be any better off than a small fleet

The new player doff and dilithium and resource
Grind times to level there character will effectively
Stop our base from getting to tier 5 for a long time

I believe this is working as intended as well

Not one member of our fleet likes it either
I believe this will Hurt fan loyalty to a large degree
When it goes live and the silent majority. Wakes up

It's now become a running joke and a bit of a disgrace, nothing explained about this at all by the Devs.

embarrassingly poor customer relations.

@Jellico1: Since we started arguing gthey announced the complete removal of all non-white doff requierments from SB's. You'll now need a larger number of whites instead.

That said i've picked up on one other thing this is going to do. SEVERLY nerf the quality of lockbox loot. The lockbox packs are nearly all whites, so the upgrinder was perfect for shifting those, but now, those boxes are only going to be worth it to flets struggling to meet doff totals.

      • If a project previously required only White duty officers, the number required has been decreased .
      • If a project previously required a specific Specialization, it generally now requires a Department instead.
      • All Green, Blue and Purple quality requirements on Duty Officers were reduced to White quality requirements.
        • These changes in quality and relative value haves led to many requirements increasing in number of items required, but not in overall cost.
    • For all of the above changes:
      • Projects already in progress, with the Duration Timer counting down, will be unaffected by the above changes.
      • If you have already input items into any of the affected requirement fields, you will not lose your ongoing progress or any Fleet Credit you earned by doing so.
      • If a requirement field was previously filled and now requires a higher number of inputs, it will no longer be filled unless the project has already begun its duration timer.
      • If a requirement field was previously partially-filled and now requires fewer inputs, causing it to fill, this will require the Project's duration timer to begin if it was the last remaining incomplete requirement.

Logically then what is the need for the stupid 5000 dilithium on blue to purple upgrind.

There isn't one
