I actually agree removing FM's from foundry missions. But this is a bad timing since most of the fleet events give zero FM's. First fix all fleet missions so they give a proper amount of FM's (100 FM's/ hour seems ok) and then remove it from the foundry.
57. Good customers are as rare as latinum,treasure them.
Simply put: we are the customers. If we enjoy playing the game a certain way then we'll pay money. When you force us to play the game your way and we don't like it - we go play & pay for something else (there's a lot of games out there you know). When you really tick us off, then we completely write off your entire company (hey don't expect me to go bend over at NWN now).
285. No good deed ever goes unpunished.
So... when you nerfed the foundry at the start of S7 - I stopped spending $ on STO. After you gave us a 15 min. IOR I "thanked" your company in purchasing Zen (which I haven't even spent yet). Now you've nerfed the foundry once more and yet again obliterated my small fleet's progress... don't expect any $ from me until you restore this entirely. If you don't; then expect to lose customers.
33. It never hurts to suck up to the boss.
Always remember that we're the ones paying your salaries.

Why are you adding lower level tier weapons when the top tier weapon (Romulan Flamethrower) has not been added on the live server yet?
I pushed all the way to the top of Romulan Rep specifically to obtain the flamethrower and it's still not back ingame?
That's like climbing to the top of Mount Everest and then finding an sky full of clouds is blocking the view!
If it were me, I'd put priority on fixing the topshelf item before worrying about making changes to the lower ranked items.
And yes, I'm pretty annoyed about the Fleet Mark issue as well.
My fleet has a roster of about 60 characters, but only about 5-6 of them are active.
And out of those 5-6, only two of us (counting me) were active Fleet Mark collectors.
And well, with this nerf, we're down to one since I have no idea where to go to get Fleet marks now!
I used to collect around 300 FM per day (via the IOR and timid/nebula mission), for 3 hours of gameplay.
Consquently, this motivated to actually be in the game, since I had something to do!
I even put a great deal of effort into making a mission like this for my personal use, considering I'm rarely near the ESD and First City IOR locations.
And now that it is gone, I have no reason to play STO anymore.
Also, my fleet progress is really slowing down now, it's at a crawl.
The other sources of fleet marks aren't enough to meet the requirements.
A 20 player action could provide a pretty good source of them, but those are tricky to organise with premade groups.
And I learned the hard way if you join the Public Queue, it's just a waste of my time for minimal marks.
Premade=80-100 marks (depending if you have a bonus CXP buff running).
..so i should go back to do fleet pve events where the players remain idle the whole time just to get the final reward.. the others work and these ... have a cup of tea in the maintime. Thank you. This is the reason i started to do the foundry missions with office reports and now you send me back with those useless people.
Why didn't you fix THAT problem before nerfing the FM from the officer reports?
Not mentioning that fleet pve gives a ridicolous amount of FM.. bah i'm speachless.. you are killing lots of small fleets with this. After all the efforts they did to raise a bit their tiers..
