There are some soloers that are in fleets and the foundry change decreases their ability to gain Fleet Marks. Now there is just the 10 Fleet Marks from doing the Fleet dailies and converting Commendation XP to Fleet Marks for them. Not every fleet member groups with their fleet and like to play the game at their own pace without having to worry about other people, but they enjoy the conversions that fleet members get into and helping to build the starbase.

Taking this away without adding back a different way of earning marks will SERIOUSLY hamper a fleet's ability to progress their base. This will be especially true for smaller fleets. Does Cryptic not want players to buy ship modules to buy their ships?
Please add something else where you can earn an equivalent amount of fleet marks. Or make the fleet action daily into a '30 minute' daily like the Foundry ones.
Come join the 44th Fleet.
Ok so Brandon why would I be interested in the foundry at all if there are no fleet marks, being that was the only reason I did foundry missions in the first place. It is very clear that you guys are trying to make STO better but most of the things you are doing like this only piss long time players off because we have to grind the game more in a manner that is not very fun and extremely repetative. As a whole the entire Star Trek fan comunity that plays this game wants to have fun but taking away Fleet Marks from these missions is not the thing to do if anything we need more Fleet Marks for completeing Fleet events and alot more Romulan Marks for the Romulan events as neither is really worth the time it takes to do them for the return. So in a nutshell my question is how does this make the game more fun to play as Im already a lifetime subscriber why should I continue to spend money to buy Zen for a game that is constantly changing aka nerfing its equipment that many of us already spent time and money to acquire.
Im trying to be as constructive as I can with this because I really do enjoy playing alot of this game but some of it is just too much like the Spheres in the STFs being more powerful than Cubes that doesnt even make sense considering that they are a support craft for it. But theres one thing in all of this that comes to mind "If it isnt broke dont try to fix it" you have plenty of players already playing the game and more are coming every day this isnt a question of that to be concerned about what to think about is if we change all these things at some point its going to make the game less appealing to return players and that will start to really hurt in the wallet.
We are all playing this game to have fun not to have more work to do in a game by having to spend hours doing resource grinds.
Fleet mark rewards for foundry missions were great. I know in my fleet we promoted teaming up for these since they're much more fun and varied than the few queue missions for fleet marks. I know this change is going to hurt my fleet's progress since very few members are going to want to queue up except during the fleet marks event, and we can't even get on at the right times for those every day.
Another fantastic move, tribble patch wednesday, goes live thursday no matter how much crap it is going to cause. The fix will be around in another month, you know, cause they are busy..
This is going to kill fleet progression for all but massive fleets again.
Even if the fleet event ran 24hrs a day it would take a ton of grinding for marks at t4/5. Why do we fight tier 0 enemies and get the same result as tier 4 enemies? How can the reward designed for tier 0 still fight for the requirements of tier 5? They can't.
You guys sure know how to swing that nerf bat but still dont know how to fix any bugs in game, priorities i see.. still waiting on getting the maco adapted set visuals fixed, not to mention the kdf counterparts...........
Makes sooo much sense at taking fleet marks from foundry because.. its not like fleets actually play foundry missions togeather bringing fleets togeather and enjoying the experience and getting the fleet reward added to it... nice job cryptic, love how you think \facepalm
