yes THEY HAVE GONE TO FRIGGIN FAR WITH THIS CRAP. {pw moron oh look how popular this game is lets set out to sucker these people out of as much cash as we can trick into spending and well call it free and fair} the rates go up and the amounts can earn go down. guess what you jearks incresse profit by 20% and decresse those playing by 50% equals a 10% loss in revinue. You seem to think those who play STO stupid WE ARE NOT.

Seriously do not feel that there is any justification for hiking up the dilith costs on Reassigning Underperforming Officers and General Recruitment. The rate hikes aren't just marginal increases, they're quantum leaps!

I only recently started to enjoy the DOFF part of the game and find it to be very different and yet perfectly complimentary to the rest of the game. The idea of having crew members other than BOFFS impact game play is brilliant. But now that it has become an integral part of the overall game it borders on ...well i cant say it without risking being banned from the forums. 'Bait and switch' comes to mind as a less aggressive way of explaining how I view this change.

Please, please don't do this. You will be taking away an important part of what now makes this game fun. There is no way I can afford the dil sinks you have added to this game despite your insistence that the increased grind only amounts to a couple of hours a week for casual gamers. I upgrade doffs every chance i get, but that will be nearly impossible once this dil tax is forced on us.

As has been more eloquently stated by others before me, we will need dil for sooooo many other grinds and yet we can only refine 8,000 per day. I don't mind paying for my enjoyment with real money, but to do so for dil, under these circumstances, makes me feel like I'm being taking advantage of. And leaving that kind of bad taste in the mouth might just be enough for me to explore options. Im not making the threat that others have that I will leave the game. Im a lifer and i love sto but i will certainly have diminished enjoyment and with that usually comes diminished involvement. I really can't stress how strongly I feel that this is a bad business decision. Please reconsider. Thank you for reading my thoughts on this matter.

If this Season 7 dilithium hike means STO is going to be a full time job for me then I'm uninstalling. I don't have time for this.

Looks like free-to-play is not panning out.

How did I miss this thread? .... On topic, one of the many ways we are being bled in game should this make it to holodeck ... which it will.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

One of the common rewards for the daily spotlight foundry is standard doff pack. Not the same as free daily recruitment, but it's there if you're interested.

I would rather cut my arm off than play 3 badly written fan fic foundry missions that take 30min apiece by someone who wanted the original nerfed so I'd be forced to "play" his wretched quest. No thanks.
