while i agree that the changes to the new STF structure limits the dilithium far too much, i can see where the ones who didn't get mk12 proto salvages get into the grieving. I suggest that while implementing the new STF reputation system, the old one also be kept. In essence, there would be a hybrid STF rewards system. Same EXACT amount of dilithium, same drop rates, same baggies, etc. BUT you would add in omega marks into the baggie so those who want to use the reputation system can get mk12 gear while still receiving EDCs, salvages, etc. so there would still be that still slim shot at getting the mk12 gear off the bat, but if you didn't, you could submit the omega marks into the reputation system.

I agree. However, I'm not freaked about ALL of the changes. A refresh now and then is fine. The BIG issue for me is Dan's (and his team) attitude towards long-time STF players. He's given some really insulting reasons for the obvious screw-over that he's dealing dedicated endgamer's, and has refused, so far, to offer any REAL clarification/rebuttals/changes based on the responses we've offered.

This situation is leaving a REALLY bad taste in my mouth, so to speak.

And like I said in that post, I like Cryptic and STO, and I hate when something I like is attacked (or criticized, whatever you prefer). A lot of what mewi said struck that chord for me, and... well, couldn't quite help myself. A weakness of mine.

But it's not my intention to rile up posters (there are much better uses of my time); I was simply stating my opinion to mewi.
Not a weakness at all, more a personality trait.

I think this thread needs to calm down a little. STO is not going anywhere and this is not the end people will continue to play. I know I will be playing!

- The conversion will be different for everyone which is why we aren't posting a chart. When you get your crate, it will tell your character specifically how much Omega Marks, Borg Neural Processors, and Dilithium your items were converted to. If you are worried that the exchange may not be to your liking, then you'll have to make the call whether to spend or not. For the most part we are posting this blog to give you enough time to make that call for yourself.

Translation:
If you want to find out how we screw you out of the things you already earned but did not turn you will have to patch to the Test Server, transfer a character and see it for yourself then. We will not help you in any way.

Sorry Cryptic, but this is just laughable. At least when the conversion from Marks to Dilithium came you were open about it and what players would be losing.

All of which is true (for you and me), but some people can't be convinced until it actually happens :/

what i dont understand is, Is the concept of "if it isnt broke dont fix it" to hard to understand with game companies???? i mean really, for me to make any amount of dilitium the way the current game sits, is that i need at least 6 charachters {wich i have} just to make enough dilithium to buy say... one spiral wave disruptor. i mean seriously this game already has more limits on it than WOW. everything is bound so you cant put items on lowbies, start a real economy with the exchange, or even with yourself. so now there gonna lower the dylithium requirements for purchases, but make it assininely harder to farm the crap??? if thats the case they better remove the damn limitation on refining it too. otherwise it looks to me like there at the point where they just plain dont give a damn, with as much $$ ive put into buying zen store ships and account addons. i think they should be giving us more perks than jacking the only resource that gets us the toys we need to be competative.
