thank you!
there it is! the content U (cryptic) want us to play! i heard that term quite some times by now and can tell one thing:
i don't want U to choose for me what content to play! I want U to provide a versity of content from which I can choose what I want to play and which provide same opportunities for toon-progression! pvp in this case.... and by pvp i mean: PVP ONLY! thx.

it could be so easy already, look my sig ... (and still with that solution i would make waaaaay less dil than in any pve in the same time )

Cryptic nerfing STO one player at a time.

Just curious if they know if there is no player base, there is no paycheck?
Star Trek Online, where the developers think it is alright to play a game with a FPS rate of 10 or worse. Blame it on the players system that ran just fine before Season Nine.

another nerf? or has it actually been tested properly this time? is the console still worthwhile or has it become worthless? anyone managed to get some good testing on it? I've not had a chance and it seems that less than week for tribble testing before hitting holodeck seems a bit rushed.

I tested this further and it seems to be just a typo or a missing decimal point. Still, freaked the hell out of me when I saw it.

The tooltip says 1,000% but the bonus applied is 10%.

4PM on the east coast, 1 PM on the west coast, on a Monday.

Oh gosh, surely having only 2000-8000 unemployed students playing STO is a sign the game won't be making money.

One. people who can't buy zen due to finances or country! won't be buying Zen to Dilithium as often as they are now.

I'm not sure you realise how much this boost's your own revenues as it is. It encourage's people to buy zen to exchange for Dilithium. Do this change and it'll cut off a lot of dilithium income, stumping the purchases on Zen. which will effect how much people will buy zen to get Dilithium.

And it won't encourage people to buy zen. If this is your hope.

Help me here. I am struggling to understand how this affects Cryptics income. They are closing a way of using freely farmed Dilithium to obtained what would be by definition free zen from the free dilithium. So with all this free free free going on, what income of Cryptics will be affected by this change?

Allow me to help you understand how they have made money from Dilithium.

People spend Dollars (insert what ever currency in the real world you're using) to BUY Zen.

People then put the Zen up for sale on the Dilithium Exchange.

That way people have been able to buy Dilithium for Dollars, which equals profit for Cryptic.


Is that a clearer picture for you?
