Lol so true!

I'm not at all in favor of the changes. Hell I am still trying to get into S7 without it crashing...

Here's the only bit of advice I can give right now.

Don't look at the greater picture because, let's admit - its overwhelming.

The key to it, and in the long run may actually contribute to "something new to do", is to define a long term strategy for yourself.

For one week choose to only do Romulan...
The next week focus only on the Omega...
The next week focus only on the SB...
and so on...

Right now that's the only thing I can offer which will be manageable.

Focused bite-size chunks of dedicated content per week.

On the weekend, set aside some quality time for PvP, your favorite episode or Foundry mission.

Season 7 is a bunch of fail

Season 7 Dev Blog 17 was a bunch of EPIC fail.

apparently lvl 50s are grinding less dilithum then expected...I call not true on that

especially if you say in the very next paragraph that some missions are dropping TOO much dilithium

not to mention you take dilitium out of content which further gives LESS places to grind to your said limit of dilitium

im fed up with Cryptic and PWE ruining STO.

Trying to "Make Dilithium more available to all level 50 players" *removes Di from direct STF loot and removes the B'Tran's 2880 Di (the single best Di reward in the game), then forces players to queue with 19 strangers for the best Di rewards* Cryptic... did you take stupid pills this morning? Or are you ALWAYS hypocrites?

Hurt them where they feel the most...LEAVE STO...I wont be the first one in this long train of exiled players

I agree with the OP.

What Season 7 did is sacrifice an enjoyable gameplay experience for a philosophy of systems. Instead of maximizing my time, I've been forced to divide it into multiple parts that isn't as enjoyable as the whole it replaced.

It's the old rule, less can often be so much more.

It's not just dilithium. I used to get a nice income of EC from running elite STF missions. Random engines and deflectors sold for 50K, you could turn chips into borg set items and sell those (effectively 20K per chip), and if you got lucky with loot drops you could get an item that would sell for millions on the exchange.

Where does the EC come from now? None of the episodes give worthwhile amounts. Doff jobs? No. Crap loot from general combat and episodes? It's all white and sells for peanuts. The only thing that gives useful amounts of EC is Tour, which is boring and only available during certain times of day. The only currency we have that's actually tradeable and it's basically been shot in the head and left for dead.

I have a lifetime sub, soo i'll be hanging around.
The good part about S7; More to do in STO.
The bad parts have been, and are being commented on by people every second. I won't add any more to that.
Personally, I believe I will play this game less than before, becasue even if I was a really hardcore player, the time-management to progress somewhat is quite daunting. -And I am for the time being unemployed, so I have had the opportunity to log 1700+ hours of gameplay since march(!)
I guess the best part of S7 is, combined with Cryptics last crazypush of lockboxes, has made me wanting to open any more of those = 0.

I will still be logging hours to this game, but the will to spend any more money in C-store disappeared abruptly with S7. What is the point anyway. With S7, there is no real reason to believe in 'P2W' either... ...there is nothing to win any longer. I don't need a Vesta-bundle to grind a mere couple of thousand dils a day. Keep it.

Last night I thought I was making progress when a Fleet member posted his disappointment with the lack of members contributing Fleet Marks that night.
How's that for a wake up call.

The OP is correct.

I can't and won't dedicate more time (and money) to a game I can't progress in.
Its an easy fix, really...combine different types/amounts of Marks/Loot/Dil as prize packs.

If the changes aren't made then I think this could be the beginning of the end.
