When I saw the huge nosedive of the dil zen ratio, I was so glad I was hording my huge pile of dilithium. You have no idea how pleasurable it is to see yourself with over 10k zen. I've spent lots of it though, I'm now a proud owner of ~7200 zen. Not an impressive amount to some of ya, but it's a big deal for any non farmer of dil.

My only regret is not waiting long enough to get more zen, the ratio is still plummeting like a crazy waterfalls.
Forum fun murdered. No longer in service.

Zen made: Zip.

I contribute a lot to fleet projects, and Dilithium is consequently worthy more to me than Zen. If there is something in the C-Store that I actually want (and right now, there certainly isn't) then I'll just fork over the cash.

I might re-evaluate my decision to hoard all this Dilithium if the exchange heads toward 25. At this point - I have every reason to suspect it may.

Interesting responses, keep in mind I would not be shocked if Cryptic/PWE decided to raise C-Store prices by 40-50% across the board in the near future.

As far as I know there is nothing legal standing in their way to stop them from doing so since it is their own product(s) to price and sell.

Do they have every right to do that? Yes.

Would it be an incredibly stupid thing to do? You better damn believe it.

Their are several reasons why that is, the biggest of which is that the low cost of dilithium is a very good thing for Cryptic as it means that money is on it's way into the game rather than out. If they can get it down to 25/1 then that would be a reason to throw an office party hard enough to shift the building a couple inches.

Secondly, the C-Store isn't exactly popular right now, raising the prices would only make it even less popular.

If Cryptic raised the C-Store prices I would be very shocked as that would be the stupidest thing Cryptic could possibly do right now.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Enjoy it while it lasts folks.

It's all happy joy joy during the holiday seasons to get players hooked but they will go straight back into money making mode by encouraging us to put cash into the game.

PW will stop putting zen on the exchange and the current 200k maybe 300k zen will dry up in no time.

No one thinks there are players trying to buy dil at the current prices do they?

I doubt they will ever do that, too much work for them.

They will just stop fixing the exchange for the holiday season. Something I'm happy about and hope they do every year.

it looks like they wanted to create a seriously fun experience during a time they could get a lot of new long term players and prove the game has changed for the better since the bad reviews season 5 and before. This was their chance to prove something and they have done it I feel.

Dec in this game was fun.

Now time to get back to normal and give me 300 dil for every zen I purchase with cash

Urg, I hope not. I get around to maybe play 1-2 mission (foundry + maybe a daily) a day and I am not even close to getting 1000 Zen. I was able to buy 440 Zen uniform and I have now about 200 Zen. I want to save up to get a ship or 4 more slots. I hope Zen stays at this level since normally it would have taken me months to just get 660 Zen.

My best Dilithium buy was selling for 1000 Zen, and using it to buy 2 Fleet Ship Modules.

Later that same day, I discovered that I had 2 Polarized Disruptor Beam Arrays Mk XII [Acc] [CrtD] in my bank, unused. When I bought them, I only paid 500k for each of them. I sold them for another 2 Fleet Ship Modules, 10 times the EC used to pay for them in the first place! Payday!

So, a load of spare Dilithium, and 2 Polarized Disruptor Beam Arrays Mk XII [Acc] [CrtD], and I got myself a free Fleet Negh'Var Cruiser!

I completed a 2-man CSE, ISE, and KASE, Optionals included. And I soloed Winter Invasion.
My Ship Builds: USS Conqueror, HMS Victorious, HMS Concord, ISS Queen Elizabeth, Black Widow III

Enough for me to wish there was something in the Cstore worth buying. Really guys even with the costume sale there is NOTHING I want. Put out some cool stuff so I can finally spend all this Zen I'm sitting on.

They are not putting Zen on exchange.
