No. It was the wholesale reversal of his unilateral decision to entirely rip out dilithium and loot from STFs in their entirety.
Yes, true. He did entirely reverse his decision to rip it out, but the end result was 980 for elites and loot drops were increased. However, the loot droops are really bad. I only get very rare purples drops every 1 in 7 STF's, on average. Sometimes, I don't even get any loot. Maybe random fleet mark drops for perfectly done missions is what we need for STF's and rommie azure nebula and break tholian web. What do you think?

I feel your pain. Believe me. Does Cryptic seriously think earning some silly STF accolade for completing 100 or so STF's is gong to make up for the drop from 1440 to 960. Ha!
The history of Cryptic-STo player relations in a nutshell:
Cryptic threw me under a bus, slapped me in the face, and hates my ships/faction. That's a strawman argument! That's a no true scotsman fallacy! That been said ad infinitum, ad nauseum. X ship is OP, nerf plz. Carriers are OP! Look it up in the dictionary! Say no, say yes to Arc. Synergy?
Larger fleets have members that have less to do due to numbers in the fleet. Smaller fleets have more to deal with as each member has more to contribute. So how the hell are these players meant to now contribute FM's?
Balanced Mr Stahl? I think not. If you are expecting small fleets to merger that isn't going to happen. Please replace FM's as soon as possible, that also means not in three months time but next week will do fine thanks.
We can't continue at the moment due to the huge amounts of fleet marks required and virtually no way to earn them due to the paltry amounts you can now earn.

Wow what a completely asinine and insane post. No MMO in their right mind would ever restrict guilds to be that small, it is always in the hundreds. You choose to be in a small fleet and accept the challenges that come with it so you can avoid some of the challenges of being in a large fleet like politics, deciding fair way to share provisions, managing large events, and generally keeping so many members happy. You made that choice now deal with it.
Your small fleet isn't unlocking shipyard tiers fast enough, and even if it did doesn't have a lot of people that will be buying modules compared to large fleets with t4 shipyards. WHich is why large fleets are better for cryptic anyway.
Just an fyi: the first fleet in the game to hit Tier 5 shipyard did it a few weeks ago and it was a 2 man fleet.
It'd be very elitist to think you are somehow better than every other fleet.

Pull up the infographic and do the math.
Well, 2 million players / 16500 fleets = 121. But not everyone is in a fleet, so it's actually quite a bit smaller than that
You're assuming 2 million captains = 2 million unique and active accounts.
It's easy to say that more than half of those accounts are ftp and aren't even touched anymore. It would be like me owning a junkyard and boasting that I have 30 cars. What's the use if maybe 3 of those cars actually run? WHO CARES! I still have 30 cars!
