If we're being honest, there really is no debate. The community is overwhelmingly opposed to the crafting changes, and Cryptic hasnt said anything since the crafting dev blog was posted. A debate requires 2 opposing sides both presenting arguments, but Cryptic isnt responding.
Pretty much they are going to take a roll of toilet paper, put it on the roll, and then tell us after we place our feedback to not forget to flush. There is your 2 sided arguement because Cryptic says its double ply.
Teach a man to fish. So what if a small title is lost on fleets? Fleet crafters are so moot on the issue, feedback should be on cost and accessibility to all not some prestige thing among Fleets. Whats next, Cryptic ruined my Fleet Masseuse position?
Tell that to the fleets that have dedicated crafters. Tell that to the people who have altitis that want to have one (or two) dedicated crafters for their account. The Dilithium tax is one of (if not THE) worst idea Cryptic ever produced for this game.
Your dad would also tell you ONE child yelling he should get a pony, does not mean all kids want ponies.
You don't know my father, so don't tell me what he said.
