Yeah, it's almost like the Devs are nerds who make jokes about old TV shows.

Hehe... That was a cool TV show.

While it will be interesting to see what happens post season 7, can I at least ask for a compromise to all this rip stuff away from newer players philosophy which has been adopted?

At end game we have sets ranging from MK X (sort of okay'ish) to MK XII (super) with MK XI (okay) in the middle. So why exactly are all of these dilithium chargeable? Surely it would make more sense and give a better play experience to allow people to at least get the MK X for free as they sort of are now so they are incentivised to get the more expensive varieties later. It would also help quell the torrents of anger of having stuff taken away from players.

Right now there is a big danger that Cryptics policy will only push potential players away due to enormous constraints put on them to get even the most basic rewards.

um.... I'm pretty sure that the Mk X is relatively cheap.

Seriously though.... buying premium gear was the original point of creating Dil...

    • All instances of the aforementioned items should have been removed from their inventory and bank.
    • There are several different tiers of conversion that players may have fallen into, based on the amount of the aforementioned items they possessed.

        • Support Colonization Efforts of the Romulan Star Empire

  • Unique icons have been given to various classes of ships in the ship selector.
  • Romulan Bridge Officers now display Male or Female on the store before you purchase them.
  • Updated the ship tailor contact to show individual options for each ship type you want to edit.
  • Resolved a UI/Power issue that was preventing players from being able to activate some EV Suits.
  • Updated the account button on the login and character selection screens to go to a working URL.
  • Fleet and Officer channels will no longer appear for characters not in a Fleet.

Known Issues:

This was my point though, MK X is hardly premium and since it is cheap what do they lose by making it more readily available?

You dont need to unlock the MK X or MK XI Items if you dont need them you can just unlock what you want.

I dont have all the numbers in my Head but i think it was 6500 Dilithium per Item for MK X Set at least for ground.
