Just wanted to jump in at the close of another day for me. Just re-affirming my support for the players raising their voices to tell Cryptic to "Stop the Farm; Bring back the Fun!"
I am of the opinion that Cryptic cannot because PWE will not...

I have been saying this since they nerfed dilithium back with the introduction of S7.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I posted my plan not because I thought there was any chance that Cryptic would implement it, but just to demonstrate that it's not that hard to make a system that would be difficult to exploit.

Unfortunately, there would be a workaround on this one. Larger fleet Commanders would simply cut loose their non productive or less productive members in favor of cheaper projects. If given the opportunity; I fear a good portion would bite at the chance. If you have a 100 man fleet,but only 20 contribute the majority, it would be in their best interest to let the others go,and allow the highly productive members to work a little less to get way more.

But I concede your point,there are certainly more than the two options Dan gave us. PWE just doesn't want you to think there may be more options available.

I do believe that the devs are capable of providing good content and fixing the bugs in the game.

But I don't think they are allowed to spend time doing it by the "overlords" in charge of the game.

If the "overlords" would just take a little time from their "vision" of "farming" the players (aka customers) for every single penny of money we have and address the real problems of the game, they would reap an amazimg amount of long term profit from a STABLE and ENJOYABLE game platform for years!

We, the players (aka customers) are here because we love Star Trek!

We don't love FARMING or bad/no content, or a game that feels like another JOB!

Just popping on this morning, keep it up guys.

Hopefully something constructive will come out of Cryptic today.

i think they just need to raise the amount of fleet marks you get in the fleet actions to 70 when the rep isnt on and 100 for them when it is on.

Another thing that could be useful--and I suspect it would appeal to PWE's chance-based models (demonstrated by their preferences for lock boxes and such things)--what about increasing the amount you can crit for in the Commendation Reports assignments? It would have to be pretty significant--from 100 (where it currently is) to perhaps, say, 150 (that is, 2x the standard reward of 75).

There would still need to be other changes made, I think, especially since from what I've gathered, the majority of Level 50's haven't pushed their DOFFs as far as I have on my main and achieved the maximum tier in all categories. However, I think that it would be a useful improvement, especially since you can do your DOFF assignments while you have fun on other aspects of the game.
