That "Casual Player" comment was made waaaay back before F2P hit.

Even though I don't really want to accept it...,

It's damn obvious even to me, that I'm NOT the kind of player They are currently wooing.

Again, even though I've spent close to $3200 dollars on this game since it's launch.

I'm not saying that the expenditure was a waste, I just feel like it isn't really appreciated.

I guess I have to also accept that being a "Person who has played this game for a very long time"... actually has no meaning anymore...

Kinda sad really... that long term devotion has become of marginal value in modern society.

Just keep screwing us and watch your user base leave... Instead of giving us less ways to earn dili, why not listen to what we have asked for numerous times and give us some more ways and raise the cap. Try a different approach and do something useful for a change...

Seriously I know that I don't go to B'tran and grind away dilithium. But really. Are you trying to kill your subscriber base? I'm a lifetime member and have been with the game over 1000 Days yes I beta'd the game. The new changes and the way the silver tounged devil puts them are rediculous. Thinking after 3 years may be time to turn in my combadge.

All I can say is that my biggest fears were unfounded - I thought there would be little new entertainment for me in Season 7 - but the way this is going - i'm just going to hang out here on the forums - it's going to be a real barn burner!

... Yes, I am QUITE sure you people are looking into raising the Dilithium limit ... and cut in half the current output along with it ...

Welcome to Season 7 folks, even more grind.
Well Stahl reminds me a lot of Garak and his "unique" relationship with the truth.

I haven't really considered it until now, but maybe I should join the great Exodus to the similarly-themed science fiction game of the same genre that happens to be going F2P.

I want to support STO. It is a great game with great potential. If the reputation system doesn't give us some great ways to get Dilithium, though, then the ways to make money in-game are just being ruined.

Please, please don't go any further.

Just counting on the Dilithium exchange projects in the Omega reputation to give us plenty of Dilithium, maybe this was just a change made for balance, and we are over-reacting and not knowing much.

Yes i know it sounds crazy - i'll go get my meds now.
I'm not being sarcastic. That's exactly how I feel at the moment.

So I'm guessing they really wanna force people to buy zen and not just grind it cause now its gonna take that much longer. Seems all the stuff that people posted for grinding dili has been addressed and removed or heavily nerfed. Happy to say I didn't pay a penny for the Zen I'm getting the Vesta with, all ground out over the last month.

Unfortunately..., TOR's F2P..., is even costlier then STO's...

The Western on-line gaming industry has seen the light of the Eastern(Chinese) one and apparently feels that western players are just as gullible and have simple enough minds to dump gobs of money into the same type of games.

Maybe I'm outta touch, but I certainly won't be as foolish from now on.
