so your not gonna make as much Dilithium like you did before, why is that such a big deal?

so your not gonna be able to farm a ton of dilithium and take advantage of the zen conversion bit.

does it impeed your gameplay any the less?

they added New Romulus, new reputation system (which is good...takes too long imo a day is too long for t1) and even gives us a whole bunch of new content, new STF's, and what everyone has been begging for 2 years to get "Into The Hive".

isnt all that worth a 30% reduction of Dilithium? Im sure there will be a new fangled scheme to farm dilithium again someday, but for now just enjoy what these people are giving you for FREE...aside from the vesta...thats not free.
I don't think you are considering the effect on the in game economy less dilithium farming results in less dilithium available to purchase for zen, and higher dilithium cost per zen.

Higher cost per zen results in more money for PW as it requires more money to buy less dilithium. Dilithium being the in game currency means you have to have ways to get it by eliminating the means to get dilithium makes it rarer ...resulting in higher costs for all players be it time or money. Not good.

Another cash grab/ time sink , that's what makes people angry. And in the end will kill the game.

Time or money there is no such thing as "Free to play"

I feel I have been robbed after a fashion, but not over the DL changes.

When I checked my toons, one of them had thier Borg Shields removed from his inventory.

Now I may never get the time to run the missions again to reacquire them.

That leaves me a bit meh about STO.......

Maybe it was that Ferengi doff on board that you never fully trusted from the beginning. He probably exchanged the borg shield system for a high seat on the Ferengi Commerce Authority. You know what they say-never trust a Ferengi whose lobes are too big for his/her own good.

if you want variety then its also better as your not grinding one type of content over and over. its swings and roundabouts.
What I'm concerned with is the demand of omega marks in the reputation system. I played infected elite once and I had enough marks to start 2 projects simultaneously. So I've started wondering if we will really need to run that many STF in the future, like we used to prior to S7 launch to get that shiny tech piece. I thought maybe it was a good idea to restrict the dilithium either to STF or FA but don't distribute the dilithium across the board. Anyways, this is a nerf only if the demand for Omega Marks is low in the reputation system.

That would explain this new subscription to "Lobes Monthly" and this case of Lobe sex wax.........

I think its time to make an example for the rest of the crew. I know a certain ferengi that just got "turret duty"
