Everything is PERFECT

Except... Dilithium. We shall see tomorrow (for me) if dilithium isn't stretched too thinly.

But thanks for announcing Season 7 early (even with the PC gamer heads up last week).

In release notes :

Quote:
Reduced all Duty Officer input requirements on Fleet Starbase Projects
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.
Let me just say this : if you're going to make Doffs cost dilithium and require both Dilithium and the same doffs for fleetbases that is the end for a vast number of fleets ( no matter if you have decreased the amount of doffs needed ) . You need to totally remove the doff-requirement or the dilithium requirement - for fleetbase/embassy progression - if you want this to work even slightly .

I asked him about that once. Sadly, at the time, he hadn't really looked into it thoroughly, but he did say that "wasn't the first place he'd've gone", paraphrasing slightly.

So.... new faction? or just more grinding?

Just time to log in and start as many DOFF recruitment missions as I can before they start gouging Dilithium for them.

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

okay seriously, devs need to explain the reasoning behind putting a massive dilithium cost on the Duty Officer Upgrade Assignments.......

These prices are going to kill my enjoyment of Doffing... I wonder how Heretic would feel about the changes to his amazing system...

I can understand that people don't like the increased dilithium cost, but I think the grind cost has been negated by fleet projects only needing white DOFFs (dilithium only needed for DOFFs you intend to keep, plus whilst it may cost more to get DOFFs, the type requirements have been relaxed.

I think it has been done in a relatively balanced way.
