I understand and can appreciate the desire to turn a profit. This has long since turned into naked greed.
Guess you missed this.

Greetings!

The Reputation System, including the STFs are getting some major changes over the next two weeks. Here is a rundown of what is going to happen over the next several Holodeck updates.
  • Omega Conversion Crates can be opened immediately. You will no longer need to achieve T3 in Omega Fleet to open these.
  • Reputation XP Project timers are dropping from 40 hours to 20 hours across all Tiers. If you have a project in progress, it will not change, but any new projects after the update will be adjusted. We are also looking into adding the ability to drop a project.
  • All XP Reputation Projects (projects that reward progress towards your next Tier) will now grant 240 Dilithium (on average) upon completion. If you complete 4 XP Rep Projects a day, you should earn about 960 Dilithium per day from it. These are in addition to the Marks to Dilithium conversion Projects. Once you've completed a Reputation System, these XP Projects will go away, but the Marks to Dilithium conversion projects will remain.
  • Reputation Projects that convert Marks to Dilithium are being moved from unlocking at T5 to being available immediately. This allows you to convert Omega Marks and Romulan Marks to Dilithium similar to how you could trade STF items for Dilithium previously.
  • Loot drops are getting added to STF mobs as well as to bosses.
  • End of STF Loot Rolls are returning. There will once again be a chance to earn special rewards at the end of STFs or Romulan Mark events. These special rewards will be Bonus marks, Borg Neural Processors, or other items needed for Reputation rewards.
  • Reputation Advancement Projects (the ones that unlock each tier) are having their timers reduced from 1 hour to 15 mins. and we are removing Dilithium inputs from these Tier Up projects.
  • The amount of commodities needed for Romulan Reputation projects is being reduced due to the lack of drops on New Romulus. We will be adding more drops to New Romulus in the future either through enemy kills or daily missions.
  • All Reputation Projects are being changed so that you need to claim the reward upon completion. This puts it in line with how Duty Officer assignments work so you can see the rewards you are getting from each project.

We expect all of the above changes to be live before December. A few will be live by tomorrow, with the rest live around Nov 29th.

See you online and Happy Holidays!

Interesting, but I want to see it in practice before I cheer for it.


It doesn't help that the rep system just kinda screwed me.

I was going to slot my 4 projects to start...

On the romulan one I slotted an active project and a follow on...

And since I had both projects slotted already it wouldn't allow me to slot the second active.

So now I guess I get to wait an extra few days based on timers and then doing a single project to get both back in sync.

i think the new way is better, and if you are in a fleet you probably wont mind to much exchanging the 1440 dilithium for 50 fleet marks as both are required.

if you are not in a fleet then its obviously not as good, which is why i would like to see an option to pick one reward or the other, but the changes in the reputation system make up for it, i think.

"So you're nerfing another dilithium source."

...

So you're crying and complaining, again...

Btw, there are plenty of way to "farm" dilithium around (I never use to do stf or fleet action for that, and I always refine my 8.000 per toon and per day without playing more than 3 hours a day), so I'm kind of having a problem on understanding those complain on dilithium nerf.

And in addition, I find pretty interesting that people who actually cry on "dilithium farming" recent nerf are the same people who complain on the "farming" side of the game. Realy guys, before season 7, you were just farming the same STF again and again and were missing 90% of the game... Stop farming and just play the game, do mission, doff, explo, etc... I bet you'll have your 8000 daily dili without feeling farming at all.

P.S. : Sorry for my poor poor english, and if you don't agree with me, no worries, you can keep crying guys

Because some people don't have hours to play every day and what time they do have they don't want to spend endlessly farming.

I know of you self righteous twits consider people who don't live in the game not worth getting anything.

And they are making one mistake after another while trying to understand what went wrong with their great Season 7 plan.

I think they were expecting too much from players. They really thought players would happily embrace the grind , buy Zen and the new Vesta, and keep going their merry way like if nothing had ever changed.

They were so wrong. Bad comments are flowing in-game, players with lot of alts are infuriated, STF players are infuriated, players who Doff alot are infuriated... Heck even on New Romulus some players are infuriated and unsatisfied...

Unsatisfaction is rampant about just everything in game. I find it kinda hilarious even thought i should be crying instead. It is just so ridiculous that i prefer to laugh about it.

I am just happy i got my gear before season 7. I can't say i want to play Season 7 thought... There are no incentive, no carrots, no loot to get... Only grind and unlocks that are spoonfed to us...

Sorry Cryptic. Can't say you are going in the right direction. Keep trying i guess. I'll keep my money meanwhile and you keep your Vesta. I am certainly not buying a new ship when you removed any reason and fun to do STFs lol.
This, all the way.

WTF. Because obviously the KDF hadn't been kicked around and neglected enough.

You know, the devs say the goals in season 7 are to increase the amount of dilithium each person gets per day..

All. Evidence. To. The. Contrary.

Agreed. The only thing Season 7 seems to have increased is the amount of naked greed being exhibited by Cryptic World.
