So it's looking like Free-to- play, really means grind or pay to play.
Not happy with the not getting a free ship when I rank up, this needs to go back to the way it was before.
Also not sure what the Dilithium exchange rate will be, but if it's 1:1 and we only can get 8k per day, that's not okay.

We shouldn't have to worry about buying a new ship in the first place. It should have been free upon ranking up..

As a UA3, I can assure everyone that leveling on a previous-tier ship isn't that difficult. Also, buying the white level-appropriate gear from the ESD vendors isn't difficult, so you don't have to go around flying with Mk 5 gear.

However, if you want it all, there's an easy solution: go back to Holodeck and power-level that character you've been meaning to build. I think we're still a ways from f2p going live, so you do have time.

Lets let the actual user activity tell the story of what's valuable.

We're not grandfathered these stipends at rank-up, so I'm still stuck with a Captain level ship as a Vice Admiral unless I want to gind for dilithium?

It would seem that my earlier comment about Cryptic turning us all from humanitarian explorers that we are supposed to be (at least on the fed side) into Miners and Pirates was indeed prophetic. I just did the Starfleet Academy event. I never saw more kill stealing and piracy even on EVE or WoW.

To be honest I'm very disappointed not just with the stupid dilithium system, but with the way this lot has been released on to Tribble. Each time a feature has been added it has been added in an incomplete form that means it is not possible to properly test to gain a decent understanding and view of how it performs or if there is actually anything right or wrong with it!

At present it's like we've been given a cricket ball and asked if cricket is any good, without all the other necessary equipment or means to make them. In short, I'd like something complete to test, if it doesn't work then I can test it an provide feedback on why and how it doesn't work.

I'm going to one up this idea, All baseline ships should cost EC, and the +1 ships should cost Dilithium.
