I don't think they are on the same exact servers. I would imagine all of their game servers are in the same location and a switch broke. That's why all three Cryptic games went down.

Ah, well that makes more sense. From what I've heard only the chat engine on STO and Neverwinter shares resources, probably the reason why people that are on NW can comunicate through the chat with us while we play STO.

Entirely filled slot 2 and 3 with doffs, and most of the security ones, burnt through about 300k FC, but found my other ferasan also had 300k FC to burn too! So next round I can dump all that in! So save your FC's till I run out =^.^=!

I find this ridiculous. I liked when the rewards scaled with mission length. With that system, the 2-3 hour roleplay missions actually became worth doing for once ().

well, the rewards still scale with mission length, but people were exploiting that scalability by creating tons of clickie missions that basically allowed you to go AFK and come back 20 minutes later to collect on all those missions, allowing someone doing that for a few hours to basically max out that character's dilithium ore limit...which is why cryptic put in the stopgap, and also partially why dil prices have been rising so much so quickly lately

They are going to do that anyway no matter what Cryptic does. Does anyone remember the one-click completes missions ("SF Academy Broken Console," or "Insult The Prophets")? You can change it all you want, but no matter what the parameters get changed to, authors will just find a new way to exploit it, or bring back old exploits if they of any are relevancy. The only way to eliminate this is to get rid of Foundry entirely, which will never happen, nor would I wish it to. So, the best thing to do is just leave the rewards set to scale with time, or bring back one-clicks, and leave it that way.

tl;dr version: People are going to exploit no matter what the parameters, so Cryptic just needs to get used to it.




Also, I don't believe this had anything to do with Zen prices. The reason for the rise in Dilithium Exchange prices is because of the rush to amass as much Zen as you can so you can buy all the new Romulan ships when LoR comes out. A month after LoR comes out, the new will wear away, and Dilithium Exchange will fall again.


In any case, here are my thoughts on the matter.

the upcoming romulan content was part of it, as was the CE event, but most of it was because thousands of people were hitting their character's MAXIMUM ore capacity in just a few hours...that means they had their day's refinement for the next several years; no more need to buy zen for dil for those players, and in fact they were flooding the market with all of that excess...throw that on top of the CE event, and suddenly dilithium becomes a nearly worthless resource again

of course, now that cryptic has banned most if not all of those exploiters, the market should start slowly dropping again, then drop sharply a few weeks after LoR
