Beep, beep, beep, Warning, Cryptic truck reversing.


And the masses are thankful for the return of the crumbs and all is right?

I gotta give it to Cryptic, you're one slippery devil. Just look at all the "thanks Cryptic" on this thread alone.

Genius...

EARTH TO DAN, you cant do both a fleet action and an STF at the same time! why the hell is the fleet action dil being slashed so hard!

the problem with stfs in season 7 is that there is 0 items awarded at all, no item drop ant the end, no lock box, no dil too but the fleet action dil makes up for this, there is nothing but omega marks or a neral processor. were is the actual loot? at the very least it was a good source of EC.

Awwww isnt this nice, finally a thread the feels like a warm fuzzy hug.


If only the community would pick up the pick forks and torches and go on a rampage about the lack KDF content/ships... then again good things come to those who wait and S8 might be the KDFs golden season

The thing is, where do you find this Commnity? It's not these forums as Cryptic say's it's a drop in the ocean the people who come here. Are we to believe that maybe, just maybe, the negative vibes on here, have moved on to other media?

Not sure why Dan decided to post here and not at Massively or PC gamer or Priority 1.

I realize that some in the community don't really care to much for the loot drops, but many of us still do, and relied on STF's for it.
I think the loot drops from fleet actions are clearly more than enough. They are way better than what we used to get in STFs. Actually I like the current design: ECs in fleet actions (with some dil), and dil with marks in STFs. It gives me a reason to play both.

To turn common duty officers into very rare would require at least 2.5 days of dilithium harvesting... Basically I'm enraged beyond comprehension at this amount of grinding...

Maybe the data was wrong, it may be from when we cashed all of our stf loot in before season 7 release



Just a thought, I could be wrong haha

And the fact that you added insane Dilithium costs for about all items that people need, items that used to cost no Dilithium, was not expected to impact the Dilithium economy?

Careful Dan, that almost sounds like an insult to your playerbase, we do not want our cake and eat it ,"as you put it" we just want a fair game....

Remember, you guys removed 1440 dilithium from the btran daily and then also from the stf's, despite us telling you it was too much.
You then added unneeded dilithium costs acquiring doffs and other parts of the game, so you took away and also added costs which was double dipping!

You then lied to us for the second time regarding the conversion of all our saved up stf currency stating that we would get the same purchasing power. It took us the playerbase to work out your con, and 90% of the playerbase would have been ripped off of our dilithium.
Thankfully we averted your ploy, held onto the minimum needed for the best value and then converted the rest into what we should have got in the first place....

Work with us and this could have been avoided

Cool changes, I didn't want to bother with Space Fleet Actions anyway. Now, they're REALLY not worth my time.

Again.
