It would be better to add dil rewards to missions, or even just a wrapper to get dil for replaying missions. And remove the cooldown from the foundry daily, if we're going to be forced to spend 45 minutes to get 1440 dil anyway why should we have to wait a full day to get anything out of it again? It's easily possible to get more than 1440 dil in 45 minutes just by running STFs and FAs, and there's no full day cooldown on those.

Hmm.. only way I could really see something like this.. would be if it was a fairly small amount - like 25 dilithium every 15 minutes or so. Meaning, you'd end up with a couple hundred dilithium each play session.

That said, there'd probably need to be a cap like 500 dilithium a day or some such to avoid rampant botters.

Yeah, I can't see this being implemented. Its too easy to exploit. How? Easy, I remote into my home machine and doff during the day when things are slow at work.

The opinions expressed in my posts are not necessarily those of my employer or Subspace Radio.
PS: My show is actually at 0200 GMT these days. I really need to dig up the PSD for that signature and redo it.

yep, i agree, we should get something from replaying old episodes (we get something for replaying old foundry missions, old STF's, old PVP maps.. too..

some 480Dill pro mission. Easy ones for 240.

PLUS - all the maps from missions should be available in the foundry

This would also be susceptible to multi-boxing, using multiple f2p accounts to farm dill to buy zen, to buy keys to mail to main account, or sell to other players for RL cash.

Making the game easy to farm by professional botters would not be a good move IMHO.
I really like the idea but professional botters would farm it like you would not believe. Keep on this though. Just find a way to solve the above problem.

Most recently with the Reputation System....how do you only fix part I and II and leave part III, IV, and V the same...you know they were able to see how many ppl were approaching T2 or had passed it. Everytime, EVERYTIME, cryptic has given something it comes at a cost to the player. I think we should just agree to give cryptic some time to catch up with itself and fix the problems they introduced with S7.
They only fixed the first parts in this last update. The rest will be resolved by an update on Nov 29th. That will adjust the rest including lifting the LvL 3 cap to use the crates we got for unused old Stf tokens. Look at Branflakes last couple updates for more details on this.

You should pick your words more carefully ;P

Of course the developers want you to actively play their game and content, not just log in.
Does it make you feel any better if i tell you that i'm German?
