We will also be running a full month of Feature Episode Replay where all the limited time rewards from all four series will be available all month long. So if you've got some new characters that need these special items, December is going to be your chance to catch up.
Might I politely suggest that these changes to Dilithium rewards be marked as "Bonus" or something? ZDE Fluctuation Adjustment? Something like that to reflect the work-in-progress that MMOs are, and that these things are indeed subject to change?
So, something might reward X and you want it at Z.
You can increase X to so X = Z.
Or, you can have X + Y = Z.
Later on, should you need it to be A instead of Z, you can adjust Y accordingly.
Does that make sense? Or would that be unnecessarily complicated?
edit: Be sure to label it as such! So, "Dilithium Reward: X, Bonus Y" when giving out the rewards. Just so its reinforced, "this is a bonus, this is an extra."
OK this is getting ridiculous. I am just dissapointed.... I cant stay connected for more than 3 minutes..... I expect some sort of in-game mail apologizing for this and containing some very rare weaponry for our ships!!!!!

One note, the foundry daily. 3 *good* well done foundry missions go anywhere from 45mins to 1h30mins.
I would strongly encourage looking into altering this dil reward, and perhaps if possible devise a mission length scaled dil reward algorithm so if someone lands a 1h long mission they'd end up with about the same amt of dil as they do with 3 15 min missions.
Dunno how much of that would be possible based on the coding of the game but figured I'd suggest something. There are some truly good missions hiding in the foundry and anything that would help the players explore more missions is welcome news.

The Cube Assimilating Your Ship Right Now
OK, appreciate your efforts and listening to us on this stuff and all, but the amount of times I've been disconnected now is approaching the ridiculous - and I'm missing out on rewards and drops for not finishing missions...frustrating, to put it mildly. Have actually never been DC'd before (seriously, never), and it's been about 6 or 7 times now in the last 30 minutes.
I put this into the 'Gameplay Bugs' threads, too.
Hard to enjoy the fixes and other goodies if you can't stay logged in. In reading, it is clear this is impacting a lot of folks, so I hope you all will do something about this pretty quick...
