I'm not as frustrated with the system as I thought I would be but there is one thing I do not understand though. Mr. Stahl you stated dilithium would be added to fleet actions in season 8 or maybe around that time. I'm just kind of confused on is this going to hit when season 7 comes where you can get a decent amount of dilithium for time spent or is that going to be later on between seasons or season 8.

Looks good imo. Alot of complainers who seem to rather a system where stuff never drops for one you actually make progress towards...

I have been trying to get the Mk XII Armour drop (or whichever KAGE gives) but I have had no luck. I have been keeping the Mk XII PSG and Mk XII Weapon techs in my bank until I have all three pieces so I could go and trade them in at the same time.

My question is, would I be better off in trading the two techs that I have for their respective equipment, then collect marks for the Armour? Or do I leave them there and hope they get traded in for enough marks to get all three set pieces?

This is what people are mad about...

Other words, you have to spend more time and money to get what you originally earned.

Everything else about the system is fine.

I'd be interested to know how this grind fest after grind fest will be taken by the f2p community who I think will go screw this and go play another game but time will tell. In the end I think it will alientate veterans and f2p alike such that people will just give up and the season 7 of STO will fullfill it's destiny as the final season or be another nauil in the coffin at least.

Yes you've gone from a chance system to an objective timeline great +1 there. Now though we must regrind everything -1 and instead of working on getting that last bit of mk12 we must go through the process of mk10 and 11. Rather than grind 20 eSTF's that you could do in say a week for mk11 gear let's say (conservative estimate) I must grind for I would say longer to get the same mk11 under the reputation system yes? I can't see me getting to T3 or whatever in 1 week, no chance.

All you've done is make mk12 a certainty after~2months and mk10-11 longer to achieve. You've made 1 tiny thing better at the cost of making much more worse.

Locking what we've already earned until later.....really? I get the autoskip, fine but what I don't get is (and I must be wrong here but you say 'all details' yet lack the stuff people ask for);

EDC, tech etc is converted to OM and BNP.
These rewards are used for projects but are locked until T5.
At T5 we get OM and BNP unlocked but all the items are for dilithium and we apparently have no use for OM and BNP.


So why the heck are you denying us rewards until a time when we don't need them? I must be missing something blatently obvious here but your dev blogs are crudely informative telling us what we've already knew to a large part. Unless OM and BNP are used for buying items we have no need of them when we hit T5.

I've given up on arguing with Cryptic when I realised long long ago they didn't listen to the community either putting out patches after 1 day on tribble when there wasa list of bugs a page long, refusing to give out the information on dil conversion and admitting they were screwing us even after players shoved it in their faces.

If they want to bury the game fine by me I've paid my LTS, Cryptic now pays me and I'm in not rush to throw my money at them. Sooner or later the grind fest will alienate the community to such a degree people will look at months of grinding and leave or not bother.

Okay, now I get it. I never believed that there would be a British Political Party that I could like LESS the the Tories.

And, again, nice job Dan. This is the first GOOD thing I've seen done to the game in a fair while (apart from the other Season 7 features).

Just give everyone free LTS's and I'll be happy.

Joking!

You should certainly convert those two tech pieces into real items. After S7 comes out you'll have to pay a large pile of dilithium and earn lots of marks for each of the pieces you could now get for free.

the problem is not the progresss towards its the time it takes.

i want to know that if i play 10 hours 1 day i get 1 item.

if i play 1 hour every day for 10 days i get 1 items.

i dont want it to be i play 20 hours 1 day i get nothing its wasted effort i still need to wait 60 days.
If only they fix Cloaking bugg *new message BOOM decloacked.
