Simple. Get a loot box, and it contains Energy Credits in it. Scales to level. Sound good?
If you're not rolling in the EC every time that you log into the game then you're "playin' it wrong".

DOff missions, Tour, Patrols, Dailies, etc.

And then there's always that other source of EC's - lockboxes.

Not helping you create or buy commodities?

Uh I have yet to run into a EC problem when replicating commodities. Forgive my bluntness but perhaps you are in the language of today's youth, "Doing it wrong?"

The people that replicate commodities are kind of doing it wrong (or at least, paying more for convenience).

Buying from the replicator has you paying 150% of the price, compared with a commodities seller. You can save even more if you can find the right place to buy the specific commodity you want (or if you have a Tuffli).

WHY do we need EC to begin with?
It should be done away with and utilize Latinum.

Here's two ways. There are many, many ways to make Energy Credits and not spend a dime. ertihan also made a nice little guide that's well worth reading.

Now, these are not the only ways to do things, nor the best. But they do work

Play fleet actions... I've made about 30 million in them since the start of S7. The new drops change they just implemented makes it even easier.

Actually I just sell the doff packs for 5 Mil... plenty of suckers born every minute... including me and the dude who bought the doff pack. Only the man (PWE) makes out in the end....

And this too.... with the amount of dopes out there, it's sickeningly easy to get first place in SB24 with the right build and tactics even when I start late at like 30 ships into the first objective.... And it's not just about escort vs cruiser... even my escort vs other escorts... even flying with bugs... I have walked away dealing over %30 of all damage in SB24 multiple times and I log it with ACT. <- Now not to sound too much like a bragger... I would probably get absolutely facerolled in PvP....
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?

then im one of the lucky ones who has a tuffli.....buts damn it costs me 15k-30k ec to fill up the req slots for the 2k rep...x2 due to there being 2 projects...thats per day...then again farming for purple drops at klink borg warzone gets me good ec
