I have to agree, if this is dilithium based like the starbase project, and its even 50% the starbase cost...thats just too much to ask of most fleets. Especially if this is going to become every week there is a bloody dilithium sink.
Sorry if this sounds harsh, but the only thing I would have you guys "developing" right now are fixes to the issues with server timeouts and graphics drivers since the season 7 patching started. No point in adding all kinds of fancy eye candy to the game when it won't display right for some people, others will get maybe 5 minutes to look at it before they get kicked again, and others are unable to log on in the first place. It would be nice to hear so much as a peep about this, when there is obviously a staff presence on the board who could say something, even if it's just an admission that they have no clue how to fix it yet.
