Exchanges aren't free, asylums were the only ones.
Bajoran officer Exchange might as well be free. You can send any non-civilian, non-photonic doff and possibly get back a purple. And it doesn't cost dil.. It's easier than asylum since you don't have to send a refugee.
Of course it is a cash grap. Bullying weak minded losers into buying dill with Zen is easier than making a Cryptic Store where you can buy non-bugged ships, bridges, boffs, costumes, pets etc .
Yes, exactly, and we hear all the typical excuses from our friends the PWE employees on their company accounts: "it's not that bad", "basically free" etc. Excuses for PWE's cash grab.
Bullying weakminded losers is easier than making a quality game. Especially now that they can hire other losers with BAs in psychology to sit at a terminal posting for them all day for $8 an hour ^ _ ^
No, a purple doff is worth exactly:
- spend 5 min to go to a nebula
- slot a support mission
- wait for 4h, if it crits, enjoy. Get a refugee you can also turn into a purple with luck.
- choose a white/green/blue/support doff, check BU, AT, ZA, and use it into an exchange mission. Enjoy a purple with a 20% average chance.
- turn your extra CXP into fleet credits, buy purple doffs, enjoy.
Saying a purple doff costs 55k dilithium is lazyness or complete ignorance of the doff system, and I know you perfectly know how it works.
A few months ago, we had no grinder and it was perfectly fine. The grinder was introduced to help us upgrading our starbases to meet the green and blue doff requirements. Now that the community has moaned enough to remove those, it's legitimate to increase the cost of these doffs we don't need anymore. In no way they are required, now the only use of the grinder is lazyness to upgrade your own roster.
And the bright side of the update is that purple doffs will be better valued (hopefully), which means more money for doffers willing to sell a part of their roster. Ignorance is always blamable, if people pay for doffs because they don't want to learn how it works i won't feel sad for them.
My only regret is about the free academy pack, it wasn't really hurting the game.

purple doffs may go up but at the cost of greens and blues being worthless so people will turn them in to whites making the price of whites also drop to almost nothing. If they where trying to up the sale of doff pack than this was the wrong way to do it because people are not going to pay 200 zen for worthless doffs.
