Can't you get all the stuff you need for PvE content with just EC? ie - weapons, ships, doffs, gear, etc
If you're content with running a handout ship with Mk XI blues and greens and crew full of common and uncommon Doffs then yes.

If you want more than that then no. And if players were happy with just that then Cryptic would quickly assign Dilithium costs to all that too since if you're not participating in the Dilithium economy then you're not making them any money.

Dilithium is the only way to obtain most desirable hardware in the game. The market place requires someone to provide it with items to sell. Crafting takes Dilithium, items are purchased from the Dilithium store with it, etc. The only way to supply the market with items not obtained with dilithium is loot drops, the stats are inconsistent and the items will be rare.

I agree, it makes far more sense to boost that pathetic 5 marks event to something more substantial. Better this than taking away yet another source of Dilithium.

Wait can someone explain why this is a problem? So in a daily you got 1440 dilithium for doing a fleet action in the past. In Season 7 you get dilithium for each run of a fleet action, meaning that you can do them all day and make more than 1440 dilithium in a day and now you get 50 fleet marks a day instead which is really what is needed right now for fleets.

It seems perfectly fine to me, the system changed that's all and infact you are getting a better deal now.

So.... I bought all my fleet gear once.... it was easy... been rolling in 300k dl since the emblem change... Its not like you have to pay a reoccurring fee. Be frugal with your DL. I also do not donate.... yeah thats the right word, "DONATE" dl to the star base for pojects unless I have over 300k

I also get my Mark XII consoles by selling Doff packs bought for Zen on the exchange.... Some of you are so DL hungry... not sure why as I rarely spend it and could whoop the $^*! out of all of you in pretty much anything dps related.
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

A better deal than a 30-second clickie that awarded 1440 Dilithium and 50 Fleet Marks?
