As much as I want to rage about the STF's, can't say i'm complaining about Starbase 24.

During play, i've received a purple MKXI console for first and second place and 1440 dilithium regardless of final position. Cool down is 30m.

A nice quick way to get your dilithium needs. As more of the STF'ers are popping along, completion time is around 10-15m.

Shame the market is going to have a slight adjustment with all the high end consoles appearing

I know!

This missions was shockingly well-populated with decent players, for the first time in ages. That part of design intentions succeeded.

Anyone know the similar mission on the KDF side? Not being snippy, mind you, honest question.

Killing the first 50 Klingons used to take ages, now it's a race to find any still alive. People packing torp spread 3 and scatter volley 3 are making short work of things.

I just realised what they have done.

They have not made dilithium that much harder to come by, they have just changed it around. so as you say you can grind out fleet actions instead of grinding stf's, but you cant just do one type of content any more.

so before, people could do stf's and events. they would get dilithium, fleet marks and different endgame gear by just doing the 5 man content over and over.

now they have set it up so players have 4 main objectives. dilithium, omega marks, romulan marks, and fleet marks. the thing is almost none of it overlaps. so if you want romulan marks you do the romulan events or new romulus, then you go do some stf's or defera to get omega, then you go do some fleet events for your starbase, then you go do some fleet actions, exploration, foundry dailiy etc to get your dilithium.

4 types of content to get 4 types of rewards, means people are in game longer.

they are not restricting dilithium, but if you want dilithium and all the other stuff you are going to have to be in game much more often and do a much wider variety of content.

Honestly, considering how dead a lot of that content is, finding new ways to funnel people into it isn't a bad thing.

Which sucks like any other mission with 10000000000000000000 enemies where you need to park your brain and ship and use csv or faw
.Also if you live in Europe and have a non stop lag you will hate that mission even more because 1000000000000000 enemies means the lag of lags.

I started to piece this together over the last week.

And, yeah, I don't know why they don't just tell us this sort of thing.
