If you think that's bad, feel for those in smaller fleets. Think the FED fleet I'm in has like, 15 members, and half of them (myself currently included) don't play much, if at all any more.

The team is working on the issues you described and will continue to do so, even while developing new content.

Cheers,

so in addition to the actual fleet base and all its dilithium costs, you expect fleets to be able to pony up an extra 200k every other week if they want their embassy to have all the stuff too?

thats a bit much. why arent these projects at a reduced cost like all the other embassy projects?


i would mention something about how pvp could use some new maps but... i have a feeling it would be on deaf ears.

Yeah, I've given up on all of these things. It's just depressing how much Dilithium everything needs. I'm the only active member in my fleet, I can't afford it all any more.

Now, don't get me wrong, I won't complain a peep if the devs decide to lower the dilithium cost on projects. However, my own fleet - which has about a dozen active members - has had no problem competing all of the optionals. We still have plenty of dilithium left over (one of our members bought a Regent recently with dilithium he saved up and converted to Zen).

A 100 member fleet is looking at 2,000 dilithium per member to complete an optional. A 300 member fleet like the one described earlier is looking at less than 700 per member.

If my little bitty fleet can carry a distributed load of 16,000+ per member for the optional, I just don't understand why coughing up 2,000 or less is a problem.

Help me understand the problem here... because I don't see how a couple hundred thousand dilithium is out of line for a project like this. Is it just because the majority of fleet members aren't contributing dilithium? If so that seems more like a fleet management challenge than a problem with the pricing.
I agree. Most of the people complaining about the cost strike me as people who want it for free.... which defeats the purpose of it being a special project.

It's a fun extra for peeps who do have the cash.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
