Turn in contraband , 2000 dilithium
I'm pretty sure you can hit your cap easly on fed side aswell , you just have to look for it . DOFF assigments can bring you 500 to 2k dilithium a day , there are about 10 assigments that give 50 dilithium each , 150 on critical , turn in colonists for an extra 500 etc etc .

I think the problem becomes not what is possible to get, but what people want to play to achieve it.

3 non-clicking Foundry missions? That is a massive waste of time most people don't have.

Explore strange new worlds? This generated content is terrible, buggy, and so bad that it should be deleted from the game. Spending 15 mins on this is ok, but the boredom is beyond tolerable, the only reason B'Tran was done because you could get double the dilithium

Eta Eridani triple dailies gets a bit boring after a while, but still doable. I'll give you 1440 here.

Deferi Dailies.. boy these are tough to run. More tedious than the Eta dailies and definitely longer, 2400 for 25 mins is ok but I can't see many doing them every day. I'll back to back the Breen ship one, thats about it.

The academy quiz used to be fine, but am I going to head to Earth so I can get 480 dil when I have no need to anymore? Doubtful

Asteroid mining is a good source, if you can hit the event time and squeeze in back to backs its worth your time.

If you turn in a contraband every other day we'll give you 1000, tack on maybe 500 from Doffing?

I'm guessing I'm going from 8k/day down to 4k, maybe 6 if I'm feeling up to running more than normal. My plan right now is to use KDF marauding to distribute excess contraband to my other characters for dil.

If season 8 is supposed to give new focus to the KDF, it does make sense they'd start making the grass look redder, err greener on the KDF side of the fence so when the time comes they can profit more by having more people baited to the faction with such carrots now then they can be selling more kdf ships and stuff at the time season 8 rolls out. Being a fraction of the player base due to content lacking we should get more reward for our time in this faction. I hope that's the way they see it.

Foundry (Investigate Officer Reports): 1440
Explore Strange New Worlds: 1440
Eta Eridani Triplet: 1440
Deferi Dailies: 1440
Emancipation + Rescue + Academy Quiz: 1440
Dilithium Asteroid Mining: 600

Which brings the grand total up to... 7800.

Last I checked 7800 was less than 8000. So there you have it. Feds got screwed.

On the flip side, I was laughing when I finished calculations, because I looked at the KDF, and they were perfectly fine. In fact, their total Dil they can get is well over 8000. It's actually more like 12 or 13k per day.

So there you have it, a change that boned feds, and left the KDF mostly unscathed.

P.S If I missed any daily sources of dilithium for the feds, please let me know.
P.P.S This did not add in Borg/Tholian Sector Incursions, simply due to the random nature of those events and the fact not everyone has access to/ can win at them.
You forgot to include dilithium from Doffing. Remember, you have to play ALL content to the maximum to get your 'rewards'.

I would simply point out that a F2P casual player in any faction is NEVER going to do all that individual content every 24 hrs. Not to mention a lot of that content is awful lame. If I'm going to do redundant grinds on the whim I want to do the ones I enjoy for the effort.

Now we are all forced to do to krap content for fewer rewards. Lovely.

Haven't we been told that season 8 will be about the KDF?

I'm now wondering if it won't be the KDF getting new stuff, it'll actually be a season devoted to killing the Pi Canis sorties, Empire Defence missions, and DOff marauding freighter hunts (to get contraband)

so in my opinion, if you want to hit 8k per day you still can do it easily with both factions.
"Drama for nothing this post is, yes"...to quote a charakter from another franchise.

also the time it would take you to do your listed dailys, i may be able to pull of double of that with PVP and fleet actions.
i mean, half of what you list are just a maximum time consuming missions that reward nothing compared to the time invested. basically in the time you travel around in sector space to get to them i can make like 4k dilithium.

I should probably have modified my commentary that as solo play goes, there is no longer a way to make the 8k mark. That would have then excluded any of the multiplayer action. I also should have said as solo content missions go, which then would have excluded DOff assignments, which I am fully aware can amount to somewhere around 1.5-2k dil by the end of the day. My apologies for not clarifying that sooner.

I never said what I was presenting was true for everyone. I was just pointing out something I noticed that wasn't there before, since before S7 was released, you could hit your 8k mark pretty easily as a fed with solo play mission content only. As is now, you can't. That's all I was saying.
Thought I would put all of these together. I also bolded a portion of my post just to make sure my intent behind this post was made clearer.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
