I'm sitting with a good lot of Ore I'm unable to refine due to the limit.

Why are there going to be limits for Gold players? I can understand this limit for silver players, but if you are going to put a limit on this for gold players, it should be, a minimum, or 10x the amount currently available, if at all.

It's kinda upsetting.

It's to prevent uncontrollable inflation of the currency. Setting a cap allows the team to know how much of it can ever be in the system, which allows for pricing to mean something.

Ok, but is this just temporary or permanent?

8k is a bit to low especially seeing that in order to properly equip borg gear we will have to run stf's up to 150 times, thats not counting working on mk12 gear.

8 runs a day equals (8*1100) 8,800 excess 800 a day. What is being missed is that once F2P goes live all of us with multiple maxed out toons will be grinding the heck out of the stf's to upgrade. A solid team can easily do 8 runs in less than three hours.

Add another 5k for dailies and we will never catch up to our intake of ore.

Controlling the economy is great, but whats the point when people are allowed to put items on the exchange in excess of 10mil credits.

Remove the the refining limit and make anything purchased with dilithium bind on pickup, that will do far better at controlling the dilithium, without punishing players who want to work to max out their characters.

I'm all ready running into a real issue with Dilithium Ore refining limits.

I've been grinding STF's for gear and currently have 82K+ refined Dlithium, and very nearly 40K of unrefined Ore. I've nearly sufficient to pick up another ship for my KDF Lt. General. But obviously its going to be at least another week before I can actually GET that ships because I'm gaining Dilthium ore faster then I can refine it.. Much much much faster.

I HATE WAITING!!!! I'm KDF.. I've been waitng nearly 2 years for the KDF to actually become a FACTION.

SEE the handle..

Yea i agre with you 100% the ore refinery is a bit low cause i havent been grinding that hard and i done used my 8k and i have another 14k to refine and i been trying to stay behind it but still i got alot of extra ore i cant refine, only point i see a bit different from you i like to see it raised another 8k would be good i think. cause the hard core grinders are realy going to get behind lol

The likely primary objective is to lead the more impatient folks to acquire these things faster through the c-store. Plus several other moderately reasonable but largely bogus rationales.

Temporary for the moment. sdangelo mentioned (iirc) that it was just to get an idea of how the market was progressing, and that they may raise or remove it in future.

I think 8k should be the limit for Silver players simply because we dont need the noobs flooding the market with gear. For Gold members though I think 15k would be perfect. It still sets a limit we can reach everyday and if we want something instantly we will just have to suck it up and buy refined dilithium from the C-Store.

Aid the Defiri - 1440
Emancipation - 480
Free Defiri Captives - 480

Traellus Sat Repair - 480
Sh'mar Rescue - 480
Salvage Dispute - 1440 (occasionally)

3360 ore daily
4800 occasionally

That is just from the daily missions. Add in the ore you get from Doff missions and you are looking at close to 6000 when you get to do Salvage Dispute. That means you only get to run the STF's twice before you reach your cap. And youll never get the nice borg gear if you only do the stfs 2x a night. It would take you forever.

There's the exploration daily and the events too, of course.
