Dilithium, Fleet Marks, Omega Marks, and Romulan Marks will be available from a wide variety of missions once Season 7 launches.
if it is missions against the Borg, it will reward Omega Marks.
If it is missions involving New Romulus or the new Sector it will reward Omega Marks
All Fleet Actions that previously rewarded Gear only, will now reward Gear and Dilithium at all scores with a special 2x Dilithium bonus for coming in Gold on an STF.
Fleet Marks will be available from more PVE Queue missions.
Dilithium Ore will be available from more missions and via the Reputation system
This coming in gold in an STF seems new... and likely to be uh... bad. Really bad. Everyone trying to get a gold star and not wanting to do the jobs that need to be done is a path to failure. Just sayin'.
SO - all of the Borg Tech, EDC, SpaceWampum, CyberCoins, BorgDollars etc from STFs that we earned, if we don't spend them before season 7...they will be put in a "LOCKBOX" that we can open, provided that we grind to T-5.
So, in effect, to get the value out of what we have now, we will be forced to grind. No way around it. in order to open our safe-deposit box of loot, we have to run the gerbil treadmill of death, the "playing as intended" escalator of fail.
This is utter nonsense. Is it because you don't have everything for T-5 fleshed out yet and need more time? Is there concerns that too many people have enough saved up loot to circumvent this?
I understand you wanting to start everyone even, but the fact is, not everyone is. So, on second though, no, I don't understand it.
You remove random loot as it is, now THIS?!?!?
This is like the first hour of Disneyland: Before they open the rides, they open the shops for an hour or so. Lame.
Cryptic: We understand that the current loot drop system is a bit ridiculous at times
Player: Yea it takes way too long to get.
Cryptic: Ok, we are just going to take it away from everyone, introduce a shiny new system, and you can re-earn it.
Player: WTF I already have it.
Cryptic: Yea so? You'll get it back once we deem it ok.
Player: Huh? I already earned it you Internet Gestapo, give it back.
Cryptic: Ha, we make the rules, pay for it.
Player: MECH WARRIOR ONLINE, HERE I COME!
Player: I got tired of your nonsense.
PWE: After reviewing your job performance, You are all fired!.
Stahl: Guess we went to far.
Borticus: I wonder if I can get my show back on JupiterBroadcasting.com. Beer sure was tasty!
Player: Beer is tasty!
Borticus: You know I can do a better star trek game with out Stahl and Co, screwing things up for me.
Player: good go for it, Just give me back my gear.
you are not loosing your gear. you are loosing the items you use to buy the gear to a conversion. if you already got the gear and acolades you keep them
MK XI gear unlocks at T3 of the Omega Rep system so is faster to get than the MK XII.
The prices of all the gear is calculated off the reduction in time needed to get the MK XII gear, so it is intended to be less over all the gear options.
For one full Mk XI set I need 120 EDC. That is 60 Elite STFs. One space STF takes 15 minutes, so I can do all three within one hour and then repeat once the 1h counter has run out. Which means that it takes me 20 hours of /played to get one Mk XI set (less if I get drops or can squeeze in some ground STFs).
Are you really saying that it will take less than 20 hours to get to T3?
