I'd say cash out now too, but keep some in multiples of 2 so that you won't end up with the odd EDC that you're never going to get rid of.

I agree. Sitting on 310k dilithium worth of borg salvage/edcs (and that's excluding all the proto tech I've piling up) I need to know sooner rather than later how much of, or if, I need to start converting that stuff now or whether it'll still be put to good use in the new system.

At 8.5k per day conversion rate that's a solid months worth of converting. And that's presuming I do nothing else that'll also earn dilithium in the mean time.

A good lead time on S7 launch for the blog post would be good.

I'm not ready to be pessimistic just yet, but I can say that a limit like that would be more likely to have me spend LESS time in game, not more, and LESS likely to spend to get Zen.

That said, I hope they don't do that, and I'm not ready to conclude that they will. Though this has me seriously wondering if I should be starting a new toon in the near future. I was considering picking up Joined Trill and making one. Hopefully the dev blogs will shed some light on this situation.

Brendan, if you're still reading this thread, I would encourage you to ask the devs to open up a bit more about these specific aspects, e.g. limitations on getting these assets, and what we're looking at in terms of currency conversion. Even if it's not set in stone yet, a general idea of what it's going to be would be helpful. I am certain it would cut down on the FUD going around here and on in-game chat, which I can't imagine is good for anybody.

Anybody who was around for the last currency exchange that Cryptic did (Season 5) knows exactly what to expect...

The most obvious thing to do at this point is Trade everything you can in for Dilithium, or take a big loss with Season 7.

Really?

Because I took the opposite lesson. I traded in last time and lost out.

Last time Cryptic managed to be quite vague about who will loose out and by how much , plus it didn't help that Stormy actually urged ppl to get rid of their Emblems .

I can't recall if the math has been done by the players before or after the S.5 conversion , but I do recall that it was stated that only the top 1% (which I took to mean 1-10%) have lost out a great deal on the conversion .

I agree with one of the previous posters that it is possible that Cryptic has not finished with the exact math's yet , but considering the s&*t storm that followed the S.5 conversion , I'd think that they'd want to inform us asap , if anything just to avoid :

a) One more pointless s#!t storm that sours the launch of a season .
b) The possibility that in a very short amount of time , relatively numerous players would be doing the "convert to Dil / sell 4 Zen" bit , which might not be so good for the Dil economy .
