Cryptic... I have defended you guys for the longest... This isn't right and you know it. So for once, play the game on the level of an average level 50 player and think...

you guys are so close...

Dilithium no longer directly rewarded from STF runs, but still via indirect turn-ins
After a lot of internal deliberate, we made the decision to remove Dilithium as a direct reward from STFs to make it consistent with all current and future Reputation content (for example Romulan Reputation mission do not directly reward Dilithium either). However, STFs still reward Dilithium indirectly via Omega Marks and Borg Neural Processors (Elite only) via projects in the Omega Fleet reputation.
You can engage in as much "internal deliberate" all you want, this is crap, and if you don't know it's crap, you don't deserve the income you're receiving and to be called game designers.

Ha, nice freudian slip there.

At any tier in the Omega Reputation system, you can convert Borg Neural Processors into Dilithium by running Reputation projects:

10 Borg Neural Processors = 1000 Dilithium
Eh. In-game it says 5 processors for 1000 dil. Can't even get your facts straight on this, or is this yet another blind change after much 'deliberate'?

You know what? If you guys are going to make dilithium so hard to get, then REMOVE it from fleetbase and embassy projects. You guys have just KILLED any chance small fleets had in getting their bases upgraded!

So the dil reward for an elite stf, the end game content, is a token worth 200 Dilithium. (When you turn in 5) Also, you have to save this token if you want to use it for the Omega gear, which requires 10? per piece.

Before, we got 1100 dilithium ore, plus tokens for gear.

If you thought we weren't refining enough before, I quite think we'll be refining less now.

This change is messed up, and you guys deserve the vitrol you're going to get for it.

I'm also very glad I just downloaded Guild Wars 2 this weekend.

Explain this train of thought to me.

"People are refining a lot less Dillthium than we expected... Let's remove it directly from STF's, make it take a lot longer to get via Foundry, and remove the extra 1440 from B'tran. Now they'll refine a lot more!"

I'm not even going to try to make sense of any of this nonsense. It's all lies and bull****, because they just want us to buy dilithium with zen. Everything else is just blah blah blah.
