The last conversation seemed to die off without ever receiving any sort of official response, and bumping such an old thread is frowned upon, so I feel it might be warranted to ask again. Why are the fleet action daily selections on both sides so skewed toward the ground fleet actions?

On the Fed side, we have Big Dig, Gorn Minefield and Klingon Scout Force. Big Dig has been the daily for three days in a row now, and before anyone claims it's just a RNG blip, I have been playing the dailies almost everyday on the Fed side for over a year. Anyone else who also does this can vouch for the fact that the ratio of Big Dig to both of the other actions is at last 3:1. I recall that when I was actually tracking the selections while the Big Dig dilithium rewards were broken, it ended up at about 12 Big Digs in 15 days.

I don't really pay much attention to which ground FA the KDF gets as I have almost never seen one actually fill a queue, but I will note the absence of Federation Minefield, which despite its ease remains very difficult to queue into except for a window of a couple hours in the afternoon. Most times, if I actually look at the queues for KDF Big Dig or Breaking the Planet, it's at 0, or maybe 1-2 at most.

There are numerous issues which plague the FAs that people actually do play, not the least of which is KSF's absurdly slow spawn rates. I have literally fallen asleep waiting for a cruiser spawn in KSF. However, this thread is about the incredibly poor distribution of fleet action dailies, so that can be discussed another time.

And almost as if to help prove my point, Big Dig daily is now running on four days in a row. Judging by how the pug queues are becoming almost as difficult to fill on the Fed side as the KDF side, it appears that many others are just becoming fed up with the situation as well.

I brought this up awhile back. On Fed side it's usually Big Dig or Klingon Scout Force. Gorn Minefield rarely pops up.

Aside from Big Dig and Minefield, FA's are old and outdated and could definitely use some touching up.

I'd go for something as simple as maybe giving us the option between two random FAs as a daily, although I suppose that wouldn't help for the KDF as the RNG would mysteriously keep making Big Dig/Breaking the Planet the two options everyday.

What I'd like to know is why it's only those few missions, and why Starbase 24 or Breaking the Planet aren't even on the list.

5 days of Big Dig in a row. Joy.

And day 6. Starting to wonder if they actually have an override for selecting it themselves and are just seeing how long I'll keep track of it.

And after a brief respite of Minefields and Scout Forces, we're back on a Big Dig spree of three days so far.

4 days in a row. Wooo.

I tried to play it, to see if that would start a CD or something, and another might become the daily, but no one will queue up for it. On the Fed side.....

So even if i WANTED to play Big Dig, i CANT.
