You did setup a very very nice mission chain in the past for the KDF, then suddenly abandoned it altogether. Which is a shame since those are the best missions in the game.
This is the kind of stuff we would love to see for the KDF PvE mission wise. Not Fed missions where we are addressed differently. Actual KDF specific missions. Continue the Feh'kiri story line. Its already epic, make it the epicness.

Oh and we really would love to get some new things to dress our self in.
There are so many good looking KDF costumes we could have and buy... <hint hint>
A little here and there would go a long way.
Throw us a bone, like one new thing for the KDF per month. costume piece, mission, ship. New stuff. To show that you folks are actually mean it.
Heck, i have a lot of ideas for new Orion outfits that would go well with the theme you have established. that we green girls need a smith instead of a tailor lol.

Not any new STF all of them offer dilithium (on holodeck) and will still offer dilithium for completing them post season 7 launch.

And in regards to new Klingon content, are you (Mr Stahl), ready to commit to a FULL leveling progression for Klingons in Season 8 (PVE episodic content) ? Like lostusthorn before me said, 1 mission a year does not constitute enough content.

With ALL this grinding now in the game, especially all these STF runs were expected to do, why dont you just raise the Level Cap especially with the new content and sector coming up around the corner.

I dont understand why you dont do this, we have waited years allready.

Seems to me, that you guys are a bit "pessimistic" on your own, in estimating a launch window 3 months longer than previously stated.

To ask a direct question: Will Season 8 be launched before or after "Year 3" ?
Don't be fooled it is a PR push, they realize the sham they are stuffing down our power conduits, so they are trying to squeeze in as many "seasons" as they can.

In reality, these aren't seasons, they are patches, in most games seasons take years to release. Whereas Cryptic is releasing one after another within the same years time.

Hehe, let us just call every new patch a season, then you can say we are at season 120, see how seasoned and aged our game is!? AND WE ARE STILL GOING STRONG

yeah

YEAH

Thats the ticket. *thumbs up*

Ok, just checked with the designers and here is what they've done for Season 7

- Normal STFs now reward 240 Dilithium + Omega Marks
- Elite STFs now reward 480 Dilithium + Omega Marks + Borg Commodity for MKXII Sets
- Fleet Actions now reward 960 Dilithium (1st place Gold gets 2x this = 1920 Dilithium)

In Season 7, Fleet Actions will now become the best source of Dilithium between the two types of Events.

In addition Fleet Actions will now have better rewards in general
Gold = Purple + 1920 Dilithium
Silver = Purple + 960 Dilithium
Bronze = Blue + 960 Dilithium
All others = Green + 960 Dilithium

In addition, at max level in the Omega Fleet a repetable project unlocks that converts Omega Marks to Dilithium at a rate of 50 marks to 500 dilithium or thereabouts.

The new Red Alert daily in the New Romulus Sector also rewards 480 Dilithium in addition to Rom marks.

All of this could change before Season 7 hits, but that is what the current plan is.

I agree with most of the things I have read so far on the new rep system for season 7.

Unfortunately its mostly the bad parts.

I am trying to take the advice or the hitch hikers guide to the galaxy.

DON'T PANIC!

But straight away my hopes for a new fun experience have been dashed.

Everything about this game is now about the grind.

Grind out the dil for this and this and this.
Grind out the marks for that and that and that.

Oh by the way there are more ways to do it now but you will still have to repeat them over and over and over again.

I see the logic from your side surely I do.

But I am not running the game as a business.

I am trying to play the game for fun and relaxation.

The way to fix the STF's was to make the drop rate fairer. Done dusted move on.

And then we could have had more of the things many of us would have preferred for the new season.

I will admit I enjoy most of what is released warts and all.

But normally only for the first half dozen times I play it.

There is an often written sentence about the people on the forums.
That they are the vocal minority but what is not often mentioned that for everyone here.
There are at least 10 times the players who feel the same way.

Here's hoping I am wrong and it is a great success.

Watch this space.

If some of the STFs dry up, then those STFs probably need love to make them more appealing. At least now we'll have an accurate view of which STFs players like most.

We are also making it so that Elite STFs reward more Omega Marks as well as making them the only source of the commodity needed for the Elite Mk XII gear sets - so this way, players must still play Elite STFs in order to get the best gear.
Goodbye Cure Space elite....unless with friends I won't ever do that mission with a Pug group again.

Please remove this First place crap, it makes noone play as a team and creates 20 one man armys, start to realise what you decide upon for once it is so frustrating.

To dastahl:

A simple action that would be an amazing show of faith on the part of cryptic to the playerbase would be to allow the purchase of Mk 12 gear on Holodeck for 80-100 EDCs per piece before season 7 goes live.

This would allow those who have yet to complete the set to do so without waiting the two months/grind for those who have already ran them countless times to get their gear and at the same time would not give players a 'head start' into the reputation system. I urge you to seriously consider this.

PS I stopped reading around page 13 so if you have already responded to something of this nature I appologise.
