T-POINT'S??

Do you mean C-Points?

He means "test points", as used on Tribble.

This is it on the nose. I've thinking adding up slowly on a per day basis (the holidays are right around the corner after all )

Using Mr. Jonathan_Kent's 500 Dilithium = 1 CP as my base case here ie a formula.

the daily cap is 8,000 Dilithium so how much is the daily cap worth?

lets get our formula in a 1 to 1 ratio by dividing both sides by 500
1 Dilithium = 1/500 th of a CPoint
Multiply the new equation by the daily cap
8,000 * (1) = ( 1 / 500 ) * 8,000
is equal to
8,000 Dilithium = 16 CPoints (I did a maximum "money" to Dilithium as well using the $7 = 500 CPoints where selling 8,0000 Dilithium for 25 CPoints per day would yield the most "money" but to keep things on a 1:1 ratio this would be it)

And since everyone here is getting a nice "headstart" with Dilithium on ALL Characters, it would be quite easy to make CPoints.
Assuming 1 VA:
8,000 = 25 CPoints per day * 30 days = 750 CPoints per month (For Lifers add 400, = 1,150CPoints per month)

For people looking to get their hands on Dilithium for the smallest possible CPoint purchase, this will be their best bet. For $7 people get 500 CPoints, and for 25 CPoints they basically get 1 extra refinement daily cap in the hands. They would only be paying 5% of their 500CPoints for 1 Extra Refinement. IMO, as a future Dilithium buyer (thank you LTS) These are the sales I will be looking for as I can maximizes my monthly stipend.

Sorry how this sounds of me, But I would never let a CStore point I paid real money for go for less than 1000Dil.

At this rate, I would almost pay not to play. I guess that's what gearing up for cash really is. Working as intended.

Kidding aside, I really don't want to be flying around in a virtual ship worth a hundred real bucks (worst case scenario with all maxed weapons, consoles and other gear).

I hope the testing metrics and feedback lead to some positive improvement.

Just calculate how much hourly wage people get from earning and converting 8k dilithium to C-Points. Even at 300/1 conversion it's NOT much. It's probably under minimum wage... in India.

If you go through and take my above equations a few steps further you'll see 8,000 Dilithium = 25 CPoints which is approximately $0.30 per 25 CPoints. out of the $7 you're spending for 500, you're only spending 5% on 8,000. This gives you 20 transactions ( 100% / 5% ) giving you 160,000 Dilithium ( 20 * 8,000)

But I can understand people not wanting to spend any. The point is there are tons of options when dealing with Dilithium and people just have to look and get a feel for the numbers

I'd like to see that we should have armor/weapon/etc...damage and we should pay for it in Dillithium. Also, there should be a fee to upkeep/maintenance of starship. Also, this should be paid in Dillithium.

Just some more creative ideas..
