This is demonstrably untrue.

When I quit playing, the really good Lock Box ships were 80-120 million EC. Master Keys were going for 1.8 million EC. That was with the Tour EC flowing in.

So, it's been five months since this nerf. You'd expect that, without all that extra EC incoming, the prices would have gone down. The cost of Lock Box ships now? 80-120 million EC. Master keys? 1.8 million EC.

The prices are exactly the same on the Exchange for a wide range of items now as they were months before the nerf
All this is pretty much true .
The only thing that has changed are the costs of the Powered Alien Artifact , but that is due to what gt seemingly replaced by "cheaper" fleet consoles , which if you're looking at the MkXII versions for a few toons , you'll find that they are not cheap at all ... , except before you could buy them with a lot of EC , and now you can buy them with a lot of Dil (converted to Fleet Marks) .

Sooo ... congratulations .
Cryptic's got you buying/needing more Dill then ever before .
That\s what you get from a company which cannot help but to double dip every time . Except that between the C-Store , lockboxes and the Dill drive , it's no longer a double dip but a triple dip .
I am losing STO with each new system based update and with each removal and editing of content .
I don't know how to save her from her systems obsessed masters who seek to control and monetize me more and more .

And now, to add insult to injury, users cannot quickly switch to a second or third toon without running the risk of introducing the all white/all black textures missing bug, making it impossible to do the tour without first closing the app and relaunching, nothing else fixes it!

Is anyone still running the tours these days?

Looks like you get about 500k for the first toon to run the tour, 300k for the second, and about 1k for the third.

I overestimated, it's 300k for the first toon, 100k for the second, and about 1-5k ec for the third, how dismally they nerfed the event

That's patently untrue. I ran it twice on toons yesterday, got 350K or so each. I don't know where you're getting the 1K thing from, since you get 50K for clearing a sector - and it shows you in the loot list.

I still run it daily. It's an easy 350K for 15 minutes flying around.
