Why not just allow fleet leaders to dismiss it if they wish instead of forcing the choice on everyone?

Indeed, as a now missing post would seem to prove my point...

As stated above, a much wiser move would have been to allow the Fleets to decide whether to continue or not...

Heavy-handed dealings always... end badly.

This is not Offering a Solution...

This is detrimentally removing it with out so much as a how-do-you-do.

I have nothing at stake here as my one man fleet never even considered this project...

But even I can see how this is going to bring down loads of hard feelings upon your already shaky relationship with a portion of the player base.

The date of this probably should have been released a while ago at this point any solo fleet who's member has been working on this gradually as he or she can afford it will pretty much lose out. Instead a project that costs say 1 fleet mark should have been made available that will remove the breen projects when completed or a contact could have been placed on the Fleet base to do so that only a fleet leader can interact with.

My suggestion...

Offer something really, really great to the player base on Valentines Day, so as to minimize the fallout from those folks who don't see this thread till it's too late.

I can't speak for the others, but I was given the impression that if the project wasn't completed by the time the winter event was over, the remaining balance of incomplete materials would be converted to dilithium and the project could be finished that way. My fleet finished it last week, thankfully, but I really feel sorry for the people who have spent time and quite possibly Lobi (aka, real money) into gathering the resources for this are having their efforts wiped away. And no, fleet credits are not a satisfactory means of compensation when real money is potentially involved.

I seriously hope you guys rethink this decision.

Please, and I think that most of the fleet agrees, make this ornament hide on default!

This, so much this. It's such an eyesore.

I guess this means we are getting a new project on the 14th then. Wonder what that will be?

Ah, and here goes the common sense again with the decision making.

I wish Cryptic wouldn't always live up to their name when it comes to decisions!
