After these changes, I'm sorry to say it is for me. The one thing I liked about Memory Alpha is it offered me a way to earn credits without having to constantly fight things and collect drops. I don't know if it is the influx of players at Memory Alpha right now or the new changes, but prices for items have dropped by over 66%. This now makes the grind for anomalies have a much lower return on investment than fighting mobs.
Please either add items or offer something unique to Memory Alpha. Two additions that will really help would be to add items that only be found at Memory Alpha or add the ability to make blue consoles.
Let me add to this thread that "Crafting" as it were, is not beneficial for End-Game. However, this patch today was the first of many concerning memory alpha or "Crafting". I suggest still working on unlocking all tiers and maxing it out, because in future patches, it will be much more useful. Hopefully taking Darren's ideal's into account for the next memory alpha patch.
