And Cryptic accountants are rejoicing in song as this forces players to buy more z-points to convert to Dilithium to make up for the lack of Dilithium being generated in the game.
Or that people who have plenty of dil are saving it for the reputation system and stores (like myself) and that those who can't meet their needs with the way they play the game are willing to pay more for dilithium. But it doesn't mean that there are less sources. And it doesn't mean that being happy with that is being a crypric fan. It paid for half of my vesta today, so I'm fine with the market!
