The idea behind having a fleet and starbase is you are supposed to grow your fleet big enough so you can also do stuff like this and not have to rely on the public queues.

The trick might be if the scaling rewards length.

Ex:

15 min mission = 10 FM
30 min mission = 30 FM
45 min mission = 65 FM
60 min mission = 100 FM

This would grant FMs, but at the same time encourage the play of longer stories, since repeating a boff grinders would earn less than sitting down and playing a story mission. Or it would encourage some authors to make long and epic grinds, instead of ones where you lay behind a fence and shootz stuffz.
No, don't like it, ad you gave them a very bad idea.

Ok WTH. I thought now ALL foundry missions would be applicable to this new scaling rewards system. Well, I just did one and it gave me nothing! So apparently not all missions qualify for this new system of scaling rewards based on average time, but now there is no way to determine that unless you waste time doing it.

Wow, just... wow.

I thought STO was the red headed stepchild?

Oh gawd. Lolz. I think STO bests enterprise if only for that awful and cheesy Klingon opera that plays when you turn on the STO music. I'll take faith of the heart any day over the Klingon opera. Oh gawd, I can hear the Klingon opera playing inside my head. Take it away!!!

If by spotlight missions they mean only the ones that take an entire 45 minutes to an hour to complete unless you're a tactical officer then no thanks!

I skip over regular dailies as it is due to the time consumption for completing them like the Traelus Sat repair.

I tell yeah what we do need, More read alert missions. And by that I don't mean the borg I mean protecting ships, convoys, medical ship escorts, supplying starbases etc, simple 1-2 punch missions that we must fly to a certain sector and complete for dilithium. That would solve the problem. No queues, no long drawn out missions with extremely complex text to thumb thru, just plain old fun. FM's for the dailies would be nice.

Just so you all no for the first 4-6 weeks of starbases - the only way to get Fleet marks was - FLEET MARK MISSIONS!!

Holy short memories Batman!
Which was one of the reasons they added them to The Foundry. There weren't enough then, and still aren't enough places to get them...

I think they still have the 15 min avg minimum playtime to qualify and then the reward starts from there on a sliding scale based on length. I was playing shorter missions that were qualifying but the reward kept getting smaller until the mission no longer qualified. I was avg 8 minutes. I was trying to see if the min time was still required.

NO FMs in the Foundry then no more Foundry missions for me and everyone I speak with in our fleet.

why, why do they keep making the worst changes, they have already chased off many people.

Do they have so much money now they want fewer customers because its to much to handle.

Is that the piece of music that plays when you pop out of warp sometimes into a combat area (with the dude that sounds like he's getting stabbed or something)?

I think they will rethink their ways and change things back to the way they were. Why?

Cause I've got faith of the heart!
I'm going where my heart will take meh!
I've got faith to believe...I can do anything.
I've got strength of the soul...and no one's gonna bend or break meh!
I can reach any star!

I've got faith (I've got, I've got, I've got) I've got faith...faith of the heart!
