So i logged in today. I took a look at my twelve characters like i do everyday.
I noticed the nice yellow box all of them add in their inventory.
I noticed Duty Officers upgrading prices are now higher.
I noticed after a STF that i got no Dilithium and no random blue/purple items...
I joined a Fleet Action. No one was talking, all was chaos. No teamplay. But we still get 1400 Dilithium for doing something INCREDIBLY STUPID AND BORING.
Sorry... I can't and won't accept this. My wallet is now closed.
Grinding is boring. I want to feel like a Fed/Klingon spacetraveller. An not like a chinese fabric worker -.-
Starbase 24 is nice, fast and chaotic. But nothing I want to do for 5times in a row just to gain my 8000 Dill.
And Cryptic: F**K Y** over your information politic. Really... I'm glad that I didn't spend any money on the lifetime sale. And I won't spend any money on the vesta until I see what your are doing with Season 8.
Can someone please tell my why people complain so much, but still play?
If you dont like it, go and play an other mmo
if you dont like it but like the came to much. Suck it up and Shut your.....
90% of all forum posts are complaints. I can imagine the dev's dont like it that much. and just stoped listening. i would do the same if i was a dev..
If you want people to help you, be a littlebit more relaxed and give tips. dont burn down the house.
be careful what you wish for - if they drive players who were paying off; you won't have this game to play anymore - they'll put it in maintenance mode like their currently failing big time 'Champions Online' MMO.
And why is that one failing? A lot of unkept promises and outright lies from the Dev team to the playerbase - much like what DStahl did to the STO playerbase whe n you compare what was stated in his latest State of the Game Blog - compared to Season 7 Blog #17 - where he not only contradicts himself multiple times; but also shows he outright LIED in the State of the Game blog.
I've played this game since the second week of closed beta way back in October of 2009 - but after this latest round of 'Daniel Stahl said stuff' which yet again was misleading and untrue' - I'm finally so sick of Cryptic's utter incompetence (especially in what they call their QA dept.) - I'm at the point I think I finally want to move on as well.
I really wish I didn't have to wait 3 years for Chris Robert's 'Star Citizen' at this point.

To quote the Angry Video Game Nerd: "What the F... were they thinking ???"
Oh, we were not meeting our daily dil cap, so you in your inifinte wisdom (or great lack thereof) decide to remove dil rewards from STF's, wich is probably some of the most played content in the game, and move the dil to crappy fleet actions...
Yeah, that makes sense... NOT!!
You do not remove various sources of income, and expect us to play something the majrity does not even like...
i just can't hide, how much i'm disappointed with the dilithium removal from STF's. now i simply don't feel the need to do them. only 1 or 2 at a time, just to get the omega marks to start projects and that's it... i'ts simply don't worth the time anymore. all the fun has been taken away. whit the retro borg set + MACO shield synergy nerfed, space STF's become harder to me (and i think not just to me), and the reward also decreased at the same time. i just feel the lack of satisfaction at the end of an STF... no dil, no tech/salvage (more dil), and no random blue/purple item, only sh*tty omega mark. i know, that marks and neural proc's can be converted instead, but the conversion ratio is pathetic compared to the base amount of stf dil reward in the old system (480/1100). and it's just not right.
so thanks Cryptic/PWE for totally screwing the very best part of the game, congrats!
and what's really makes me angry, is when you say, that "players are refining far less Dilithium than we expect them to", and this way you just "want to increase the amount they are refining". how? by taking away the main dil source from the most of the players? forcing them to do crappy, chaotic, mindless DPS-oriented events like starbase 24? be honest, go in front of your playerbase, and say to their faces, you want them to buy more zen and exchange it to dil. don't lie to us! or if you REALLY want us to refine more dil, than make more dil sources to us (start by giving back the STF's), not just sinks. but if you just want us to open our wallets, than say that, and leave this nonsense, because we aren't stupid, and we become angry if you think of us that way.
