I'm just hoping that the logjam of mass logins once season 7 goes live isn't as bad as when season 6 was launched; I recall practically all the holodeck servers were full to capacity for a significant amount of time. Hopefully they learned from that and are prepared for the massive traffic influx this time around. That aside, I can't wait to see what this season has to offer.
Tell you what, I'll make you a deal to help you out here. In return for half your daily dil refining cap earned today, I promise not to log on tonight, that should help the server load and I somehow think I'm going to need the extra dil...

It's always so predictable.
Time for popcorn xD
If I don't get to login tonight , I will be missing a day of grinding and starting the reputation projects. THE HORROR
"The Dilithium cost associated with Reassignments has been increased:
White to Green: Now 500 Dilithium
Green to Blue: Now 2500 Dilithium
Blue to Purple: Now 5000 Dilithium"
Seriously was this really necessary? New horendous dilithium costs for everything? Have you ever thought that if you're increasing the demand for dilithium that heavily that it might be FAIR to increase supply AND the daily refinement cap as well?
~ You can buy duty officers with fleet credits from the fleet base.
~ You can buy unwanted duty officers from the exchange for energy credits.
~ You can recruit new duty officers for free.
When it comes to the increase in dilithium prices, they only affect your ability to upgrade low quality to higher quality duty officers. If you have completed your duty officer projects for a specific skill, (diplomacy, science, military, etc...), you can buy specific duty officers for dilithium. Its always been that way. Plus, you no longer need to buy higher quality duty officers for projects.
Why I agree: Since Cryptic has exchanged specialization for department type, you will be able to buy duty officers with fleet credits to fulfill requirements. Congrats. You just won the lottery. Instead of obtaining your duty officers from the exchange, you can now go directly to your fleet store. Its that simple.
You no longer need to upgrade lower duty officers, so you can sell them for energy credits to buy specific types.
Exchange price gouging is now over.
Cryptic just got rid of the middle man.
I thought that fleet credit purchased doffs could not be used in projects. Is this not the case?
To be honest Season 7 doesnt seem to impress me so it going live today does not fill me with joyas it does with both of you for a few reasons
The new STF system
Another Dilithium well with the embassy.
The contstant grind for dilithium that we mostly used to do fleet projects is not getting put into STF weapons one we hit Tier 5 which will take months if not longer for a casual player like myself. I'm really thinking this little break I am taking from STO may become permament as not the RL MMORPG called Life seems more interesting and less of a grind than STO
one of 3 options will happen with this s7 update: they pull a scotty and get finished ahead of scheduale (slim possibility), get finished on time (good prossability), or takes longer than usual (good posability)
