This is why picked the week of the 22nd as the live date for S7 when people asked me.

How flexible will you be on the conversion crate? Because right now you can see a lot of people (especially those with a lot of stuff) being unhappy, but if you're going to do a veteran boff thing that needed to be announced before giving a first pass on the box conversion. But if you're going to iterate on the design a lot of people might be... unhappy to find they cashed in based on a first pass.

Ahh, but you didn't read it well enough. THEY'RE REMOVING DILITHIUM REQUIREMENTS! (and more smiley spam)

Just a tip: removing or reducing dilithium cost for Borg/Reman/Romulan gear acquisition would really be a plus. My Special Service Squadron fleetmates are willing to pay Zen for the latest and greatest (I've already bought Zen in order to get the Vesta pack as soon as it comes out) but most, if not all, of us will not spend cash or Zen to get dilithium. Now, I know that the prototype borg salvage I currently use to get Mk XII ship weapons is basically worth 2304 dilithium per piece, so...if I must pay dilithium to get borg weapons I hope that I'm not paying any more than that or having to use other currency to buy those weapons that could otherwise be converted into more than that (or took more work to earn than prototype salvage!).

The pre-patch does not come up for me which is unusual.

Also, these Tribble patch notes may interest you http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...81#post6434881 -- we've also updated the tier at which you receive your crate. It's pretty quick to get to that tier, too.

I'll be doing the same hopefully, although will likely book the day after season 7 commences off work. The servers were

Though, saying that, I do hope that we actually GET some kind of confirmation this time, as opposed to season six, where there was something of an attitude of secrecy and we didn't really get solid confirmation of the patch until the patch was half-complete.

Oh Brandon, yes technically we get the crates at tier 3 now, but you forgot to mention that last week it was 40000 xp to max out Omega Reputation, now its 100000!

So no, we actually get it around the same point, you guys just moved the final goal posts

Oh, and your advise to wait until the conversion goes on tribble before converting everything to Dilithium asap is mute, it already has and absolutely sucks
