How Dilithium rewards changed in Season 7 to meet these goals

We reduced the amount of Dilithium required for Fleet Holding progression.
Dilithium requirements were reduced by 10% for Tier 4 Advancement Projects and 20% for Tier 5 Advancement Projects. While not many Fleets had yet to obtain a Tier 4 Starbase, this is a significant adjustment from Season 6 project Dilithium requirements to help Fleets complete the last two tiers of their Starbases. We will continue to monitor Fleet progression and adjust if we feel further changes are necessary.
That sounds great! Unfortunately, it never happened. These changes that Dan talked about are not on Holodeck, or even Tribble, a week after Season 7 launched. I would say it is an upcoming feature except the blog definitely used the past tense and everything else in it has already happened (STFs, B'Tran, doffing, etc.).

P.S. Many fleets are being crushed by a scarcity of fleet marks -- and it's not for lack of grinding. If fleets are stuck on projects due to fleet marks they will not be buying as much dilithium because they cannot progress through the project, hurting Cryptic and PWE's bottom line. My constructive criticism: increase the Officer of the Watch daily from 5 to 50 Fleet Marks. It gives no dilithium, isn't a simple one-click (all its projects were designed by the dev team) and it encourages players to go to the fleet starbase. That increases the social aspect of the map as well as gives more reason for people to pay 200,000 dilithium for the limited time projects if people are actually going to see it daily.

i agree, we need 50-60 fm for fleet missions outside of the event..
when you need 1000s of them it takes forever when you get 10-20 at a time.

I see no tier IV projects on that page nor have any fleets that I know of reached tier IV

There are many fleets that are Tier IV and the page has numerous Tier IV projects (all military active projects, starbase/shipyard/fabricator/comm array upgrade). Just scroll down

I do agree Officer of the Watch currently isn't worthwhile. Even when I am at the starbase for something else, I don't bother with the daily.

I agree with Phyrexian here. We have reached T4 shipyard and starbase. Prior to S7, we held off on further T4 military projects until S7 because of what Dan said (and instead focused on catching up our engineering and science projects). We were disappointed post S7 to find that the dilithium requirements did not change for these projects.


Also, I agree that there should be a 50-60 fleet mark mission or daily. Both the Romulan and Omega reputation systems have these in place, so shouldn't fleet holdings have one as well?
