I really hope the 'no dil from STFs' is just speculation. . .because that will really piss me (and others) off. That's, like, the only convenient source of dil grinding that I use right now. I don't tinker with doffs, and you'd have to do a lot of 'dailies' (which usually reward 480 dil) to reach the 8k cap without the 1k reward you get from Elite STFs.

Barely any dil from PvPing, and a nerf/removal of the dill from STFs will make me, as a player, very unhappy.

Also, there appears to be an over supply of DL as the DL exchange would suggest, but only those at cryptic really know the real numbers. They may need to take steps to correct this, but I think they are swinging for the fence and should take more baby steps. Rather than making things more expensive... they should add more things worth spending DL on. They should add a high number of items rather than a neat or good item that is insanely expensive...
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

Unfortunately, it's much easier to create One Expensive Item, than Several Inexpensive Ones.

I'm with Sekret with the news of what's currently happening on Tribble, with the growing emphasis on the more stuff costing Dilithium. It's bothering me so much that for the first time, I am actually thinking of leaving STO.

Perfect World has ruined STO with it's greed and it's blatent disregard for it's customers. They said when they bought STO that they would work with us and adjust to the Western market, they didn't. There is no freedom left and STO is nothing but a Theme Park game not an MMORPG.

Then just dismiss them when ya hit level 50 and start another.

The leveling missions are still the best part of the game.
Have you turned 56 yet? Are you still going to chastise me for saying the game might not be around for your 60th?

Well best I can tell the STF's not giving dilithium is rumor-mongering.

However, the Borg set is now just 3-pieces (Shield, Engine, Deflector), and the Assimilated Console has been added to another set. Presumably with one or two weapons like the lock box/lobi ones.

Thats exactly how it is...the borg console + the kinectic cutting beam and yet another plasma torp launcher
