I figured you were kidding, but for a second I thought some of that might be true with how things are heading with the game.

Indeed, thought it's a steam release, but it's also a point made to cryptic. This game is not f2p, and never will be. They're over bearing on the players with indications to buy cryptic points.

You forgot the dilithium charges for using dance emotes (or any emote for that matter) and for walking around on ESD. Got any idea how many cleaning bots work on the background to clean the carpets of our muddy footprints after saving yet another planet? Well somebody gotta pay them with dilithium.


On a serious note, I do think it's getting out of hand, especially when it comes to crafting. If we could at least trade refined dilithium among each other it'd make life a lot easier already.

trading dilithium would up the refined dilithium limit to ateast 48k per account (6 characters each refining 8k) Which is alot.

A better method is since the items are not bound, you can trade those items over from other character. Right now on Holodeck I'm grabbing all Pre-STF Best in slot items for my science healer and engineer tank.

I'm a theorycrafter, and I've created setups for the Escort MVAM to being the best DPS boat in the game with skills, doffs, boffs and so on. Unfortunately, there is no datamine or theorycraft website for STO so this cannot be done with deep testing.

Back to dilithium, the limits on dilithium gear I can live with, but not crafting. If they want to fix the energy credits issue, they should consider adding a crafting fee per item that costs Energy Credits.

I think they should just get rid of dilithium and just use gold pressed latinum, because it's clear who is working behind the scenes planning the economy.
