Just putting it out there, but personally I think that giving subscribers/lifetimers a 50% bonus to all Dilithium ore earned would solve a number of problems.

Players get more incentive to subscribe, those who already sub earn more Dilithium which has a greater chance feeding into the exchange, increasing the return on Zen sales for all players. Everybody wins!

50% is a bit high and just might make more f2p players quit rather than sub.

Why would you quit if your earning potential remained the same?

It's an interesting suggestion, but I don't think Cryptic is actually trying to increase subscription numbers.

On the other hand Champions did add an veteran reward perk a while ago that doubled the refining limit on that games version of dilithium.

What would that solve?

The current dilithium cap and all the dilithium nerfs they have done so far is to TRY stabilize the in game economy, and if you just add a ton of dilithium again.... well they would have to go back to the drawing board and do another try.

When the economy stabilizes (if ever) then some change is gonna be made. But the recent changes need some time (2-3 years?) to take effect. So maybe 2015

While it would be nice, I think that 50% would be rather high personally. I'm content with the stipend we receive as it is.

Subscribers / Lifers already get 500 Zen per month "for free"
you can sell those 500 Zen for dilithium, there is your dilithium Bonus.

and that is all Cryptic is willing to give.

I don' think subs/lifers should get a 50% dilithium earning bonus. Instead, it should be 50-75% bonus to the refinement cap.
