# 11 Dilithium
10-26-2012, 07:14 AM
The OP is saying that playing on any ALT will be very difficult.

Cryptic does sell extra slots.

Why so you can play FED or Klingon.

Even a different career path instead SCI you also enjoy ENG or TAC.

Now Cryptic wants money so yes they support more than one toon.

Hoping you buy c-store items or ships for them all.


Back to the OP point and a correction.

To Max the reputation system it will cost 600k for each toon.

(Read other posts this is what everyone is upset about, I will not discuss, as I only know from reading the forums.)

What this means.

8000 Dilithium a day divided into 600.000 Dilithium needed equal 75 days.

New players this means will need to buy Dilithium or work 75 days to get it.

The concern

Currently you can easily get 8k a day,


1. contraband mission , - a few minutes
2 . doff mission a few minutes
3. Trivia - few minutes
4. Investigate - 15 or less if doing the shorter ones
5 STFs - 15 minutes each with fleet or good groups.


If you do it right you can get 8k in about an hour and a half.

The new system they are now saying will have reduce Dilithium rewards by a large percent.

What everyone concern is it will take twice as long to get 8k and not feasible if you have more than one toon.

Estimated 3- 4 hours day playtime to get 8k and 75 days .

Now does this really sound like something you want to do even on one toon.

Well look through the forums this is what Everyone is upset about.

The best way to get Dilithium in season 7 will be to buy it or play and wait 75 days.

Yes this being done on purpose why Dan said in it in the Dev blog 9.

The game is being changed for the average player base that plays 2 hours a week for two months.

The average player is more likely to buy Dilithium instead of playing for 75 plus days.

So Jelico the answer is get ready to start paying for Dilithium if you have more than one toon.

If you disagree with me feel free to review all the forums post logon to Tribble.

Please try try to understand that free game need to make money just power on its servers.

I don't agree with changes but I see what they are and why they are making the change.

My view the previous model was working well but hey everyone always wants more money.

I still haven't figured why the big rush to get the mk12 sets/weapons- there isn't any end game content requiring them.

...Unless your a mediocre player and really need the help.

This.

I don't particularly mind if I end up taking six months instead of the absolute-minimum 75 days or whatever. I think that Cryptic deliberately scaled the costs in order to keep us from maxing it out too quickly, just like with the starbase costs. We are not expected to reach the top tier during Season 7--they want us to still be working on our Omega/Romulan reputation into Season 9. Besides, if we could reach the top tier quickly and easily, then why would any of us even bother with the Mk XI sets instead of waiting till we reached the Mk XII ones?

Lets stay on topic, everyone who plays looks forwards to rewards, period.

So how will the need for Dilithium effect those who play on more

The real question is: why rush?

Rushing to get everything done immediately may have its advantages, but it's strictly a personal choice.
HAIL HYDRA!

THe forums are dead and filled with professional posters not game players.

The subject is about the need for Dilthium and alternate toons.

The most intelligent comment you guys can post is what's the rush.

I never saw once in OP or my reply anything about rushing.

LOL: Beam me up Scotty no more intelligent life here in the forums!

The only question posed by the OP was to Cryptic- only they can answer it.

As for the rest of the thread, it can be condensed into 'buy and convert as much zen as you can now, because the exchange rate will tank come S7 and it's will be harder for your multiple toons to keep up with the new system if your in a hurry'.

See, not so hard was it ?

This right here seems to be what STO is geared towards. I have 5 characters, but only concentrate on one at a time. The others all have to fight for any 'leftovers' that my main throws away.
