If you mean OM:BNP:Ore 1EDC will equal 1 proto tech.

Yes that's correct unless the 'tweak' has suddenly given us what we want, wihch it won't. Unless Cryptic do something drastic everyone would be better ofdf converting everything to Ore.

Then when the dilithium market gets over the shock of the excess dilithium, Cryptic will go "oh look there's too much dilithium lying around, let's tax/add another sink, raise costs/remove ways or not make new ways of getting dilithium."

Those that did convert and/or have large reserves way well be okay for a while providing no more currency conversions. Those with little/no dilithium will get screwed as they'll have no reserves to fall back on and harder means of getting what they want.

I already have. I converted all my tech etc leaving a few edc and salvage over.

Means I wont have to grind for Dilithium for a while

They already have by removing the quick to complete foundry missions from the daily officer report mission. When i tried them on tribble the romulan pve missions (vault and azure nebula) didnt grant dilithium either meaning if you want to grind romulan rep its going to be a lot harder than grinding omega rep (stfs do grant dilithium at a reduced rate).

Toon 1
547 EDCs
105 Proto salvage
24 Prototype tech

Looks like I'll be selling off for dilithium most of it.

2 Prototype tech
7 Rare salvage

gets converted to
2000 Omega Marks, 10 BNP and 2k dil.

I have not seen anything official anyways. By that I mean no post or dev blog stating that those will be included or converted at all.

I could be wrong, If someone else knows please do tell?
