Thank you for the quick reply. I was somewhat mollified to see the price increase (as, in my opinion, the time/reward ratio for fleet gear is pretty bad to begin with), and I'm glad to see you guys correcting that issue. I understand time-for-gear and I understand you guys need to make your money, but running fleet weapons at 22k dilithium and 20k fleet credit is just unreal and would have pissed off more people then it would be worth. Thanks for the quick response.

STRONGLY AGREE. And can you PLEASE make the Romulan doff grinder on New Romulus actually spit out Romulans and Remans, not random Federation doffs?

For the love of Trek!

If the devs want to "balance" the fleet stuff versus the crafting then I'd be okay with increasing the cost in Fleet credits but NOT dilithium. Dilithium is a pain to build up quickly unless you dump real cash into the game. Players can build up fleet credits "relatively" quickly without needing to spend real-world currency just by spending time in the game (earning fleet marks and other resources and contributing those to their fleet projects.

Going the route of increasing the cost of fleet gear by increasing the cost in Dilithium just smells like a money grab. If you increase the cost in fleet credits at least you can argue that you're also trying to help fleets by getting players to contribute more to their fleets in order to buy the gear.

Hawk, what category does the second space sets like the proton particle stabilizer that currently go for 15,000 dil go into? Stay the same?

So Romulan weapons will drop. Will the other ones that are only 19205 dil increase?

No weapon have a 1905 cost, you might have discount from the mine in effect when looking at the prices because no price without discount would end with a 05.

Rep costs for weapons been pretty normalized with Romulan being the standard price since it started as they were the first reputation with space weapons.
