Back when we had all those different marks converted to dilithium, DStahl said that this new dilithium would be our one true currency we'd need in the game. A few months later, we get lobi, Omega, and Romulan now. We get fleet marks and fleet credits.

It's like we're going back in time without using the slingshot method. Heck, we can't even style with a DeLorean doing it.

I could see through all that maybelline.

"Judge me by record" was something you said years ago Dan. Yep, still judging.

The game only really has 5 currencies right now, EC, GPL, Dil, Lobi, and FC. The various flavors of marks aren't true currencies any more than Contraband is....
HAIL HYDRA!

I should really copy N paste this some place so I can break it out every time someone complains about too much currency.

If we only had Dilithium as a currency then the game would be P2W and no one wants that. I could spend my monthly stipend score 78000 dilthium each month and own the poor silver players who would need to grind for 9+ days to keep up with what I get for free.

I know what your thinking: "But Kingdox I'm an LTS you wouldn't pwn me....."

Notice there are people who spend 100+ bucks to get one lock box ship? Imagine if they spent all that cash on Dilithium. Do you think you would have any hope keeping up with them if EVERYTHING in the game could be purchased with dilithium?

Say the 8000 refining cap is still in place. I'd bet you'd get a LOT less than 78000 with your stipend.

Please provide a quote where they said it would be the one true currency? The elimination of marks was only to condense the level gated currency (marks) we had and introduce a non-tradable & throttled currency for a new economy.

I am specifically going by how things have changed in DStahl's stance apparently from the day dilithium was brought into the game. It wasn't here at launch. It replaced a few marks we had. Now we're going back to the multiple currencies method we had back then.

So it's just a flip flop I'm addressing.
