If you don't increase the Tholian Marks there is going to be a mass panic attack come May.

Romulan marks are bad enough to grind. Only 15 for hards? That's going to be ridiculous if we have to spend 500 on a piece of Tholian ship equipment like we did with STF sets.

Possibly, a lot of that depends on the other sources of Nukara. But ya.. 15 for the hard mode dailies feels a bit low.

5, 10, and 15? Are you insane? You already award us bad numbers for romulan marks, now you want us to grind bad numbers for nukara marks? Considering I can get around 100 Omegas in an Elite STF, you need to increase BOTH romulan and nukara marks to give us alot more.

I agree with antrenos, ashkrik23, and sudoku7, those reward numbers are way, WAY too low.
It will be bad enough if those numbers make it to Holodeck but to expect us to test the system on Tribble with those numbers is a serious stretch. They need to be increased as antrenos suggested.

And I'll second what burstdragon323 said as well!

I've updated the patch notes so it's clear we're NOT done with the Nukara stuff.
  • Note that this is just a first implementation, and marks will be added to additional content.

Edited to fix a really stupid typo that made what I said the opposite of what I was intending to say. My update was bad and I feel bad.

I bet that's the *reason* for the change...

That and it will no longer affect plasma fires from Torps as well as the Plasma Proc fires.

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

The problem isn't adding marks. The problem is that you have set the rewards to a SHAMEFUL low level. Nobody will run the Easy missions for a measly 5 Marks, and the Hard missions for 15 Marks is barely worth it.

More sources of insanely low marks doesn't ease the pain.
Look at the Romulan Marks. Most people are forced to grind Sector dailies or grind rabbits for decent marks. Because every other Romulan mission except Mine Trap rewards very low amounts for the amount of time put into them. Hence why those missions are played less often. Why play a 15-minute mission for 15 marks when I can play another mission almost the same amount of time for triple that?

Any specific examples of where 'all over the place' the updated audio is located?
