It was more than at the beginning of S7 but less than previously...overall itwas still a nerf, just done in a sneaky way.
Leave nerfing to the professionals.

i can only say that i don't bother with that "officer of the watch" daily, because it is simply too much effort for the 5 marks to fly all the way from ESD to the base.

in fact i don't even bother doing it when i go there to do the DOff CXP 2 FM Commendation Reports.

5 marks are just... not worth bothering at all.
Not if the project you are starring at wants 20000 marks from you.


for 50 Marks... i guess i would do it every now and then... at least when i'm at the base anyway.

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!

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.

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.

Which would mean if 5% of their playerbase was gold they'd be making over $1 million a month before a single Zen purchase or C-Store sale.

Like I said. Doesn't pass a giggle test.

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!
