I tried raising this point, and have highlighted that a Dev has spoken of mistakes been made in balancing projects against ingame avaliability (Bartender Project) during the original development. There is talk of revising some projects and a project funded by lucky drops and purchasing from the Exchange seems to be in need of a fix.
I just read about this... either add them to replicator permissions (which is annoying) or change it all together. Its pure stupidity really, why does it take so long to know this is a bad move? They could have fixed this long before anyone found out.
Taspar Eggs are available with a Purple Cardassian Chef through the replicator. Problem is that they are worth 500 million on the exchange. Not even sure how people are going to purchase the Klingon Hearts of Targ at a consistent pace.
Maybe the Chefs and Bartenders should be changed so Klingon Heart of Targ, Romulan Ale, and Dosi Rotgut are available. Having a purple Romulan Bartender gives out cheap Romulan Ale, purple Klingon Chefs gives out cheap Klingon Heart of Targ, and purple Dosi Bartenders give out cheap Dosi Rotgut.
The only other solution is reduce the insane requirements by a ton.
I think I've only ever owned ~20 eggs and ~30 Hearts during my entire 3+yrs of playing of STO. Not sure what the Devs are smoking/injecting/huffing on this one. And the freakin chef doesn't even have anything above what your replicator has! What a joke.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!
