They added this to try and offset the loss of dilithum with the removal of the cluster spaces.

And yea this went live with 9.5. Seems they are still have issues with releasing info in a timely manner.

Glad its on the offical site though, I don't use facebook or twitter at all and hate when things are only posted there, as I only learn of them well after the fact.

Read more info in our latest Dev Blog to find our what AZs will qualify for this addition, as well as the reward ratio.

Good luck out there players!

We already knew this (thanks to the patch notes), but this is another unequivocally good thing. Smart move, Cryptic.

IMO, no additional options to acquire dilithium mean anything until the Refinement Cap is increased.

The ONLY reason I see that the cap has not been or will not be increased is Cryptic wants us to get so impatient that we buy Zen and convert it to Dilithium in order to accomplish our goals.

That's a great addition which will hopefully increase activity in those zones. But isn't it time to increase the daily dilithium refinement cap as well? I mean compare the possibilities to spend dilithium when the cap was originally introduced with the possibilities and requirements now! Reputation gear, fleet gear, fleet projects, crafting... I think an increase to 10'000 or even 12'000 per day would be appropriate.

That would be great if they added 2 BOFFs like the Dyson sphere has.
Maybe 2 to Nukara and a full team for Deferi.
Why would I as a Starfleet captain beam all alone into a freaking invasion zone??!!!

I think you are right. However, I have said this before they should make it 16k per day which would be nice and then when we have the Dilithium Weekend which starts Tomorrow, DOUBLE it for the entire weekend that way people like me that Ar eon all weekend don't accumulate 300k dilithium and have no way to refine it unless I wait 3 months.

I don't think it is too much to ask them or beg them to increase it, but I did read in another post that the reason they won't increase is that players are not refining max daily.

I call that a load of craptic BS because I refine max everyday on 5 toons and have done so for 6 months.

They would have to revamp the zone in order to accomodate the extra bodies in the zone. Currently Defera is 50 person in each zone. Dyson BZ has a limit of 20.

I would welcome the addition of a full team because fighting the borg in some of the missions is not easy. A team makes it more fun as well, as I wouldn't spend all my time respawning.
