It does bother me, because it was rumored that the General Recruitment mission was nerfed (added Dilithium tax) because of them.
Perhaps Borticus could revamp the DOFF system and have DOFFs from Fleet Stores be traded only members of the Fleet? Or code them that they aren't able to be sold on the Exchange?
Also be nice if he could can make the system more friendly for the Fleet and Reputation system that allow us to buy more specific DOFFs for these projects. I for one have been stuck finding Fabrication DOFFs for months now on a Tier 1 project (currently past Tier 2), and is a reason I don't bother with these Provision Missions because you go through a ton of work in order to get one. It's rather silly.
