i felt a disturbance in the TH as well, i get ice jewels and nova crystals once every 6 or 7 missions, and thats about 6 or 7 hours of crew time, where as i could count on 6 purple gems every other mission

Yes it did. Since 1.1 Corusca Gems (Grade 6 Gemstone, Purple) returns are about 28% less per my calculations, but that's not the end, because when she does get returns, she sees about 65% less in the amount of the return. (she no longer has missions where she gets a return of more than 2).

Also, I have found that Kira's mirror companion has a +5 o critical success on these missions, where Kira only has a +1, so the Sith see better returns on the crafting materials. Kira can get a maximum of 2 corusca gems on a successful (critical success run). It takes her a little less than an hour to run these missions, and since she is the only one that can reliably crit on these missions, it takes about 2-3 days to get the 4 needed to create one color crystal.

And still Bioware refuses to comment on the state of crafting. Nor do they choose to communicate why they are making these changes. I used to sell purple advanced color crystals for 35k a pop (15k lower than the competition) now there are people trying to undercut that at 25k, but here's the deal, as of right now, at 25k, it is a credit loss. So I'm not selling them anymore because I'm not doing it to lose money.

So, as of right now, the only thing I have to craft are some level 22 enhancements for my companions (once I RNG the artifact level of mods) and that's it.

Crafting is now a complete money loser when it comes to artiface and is therefore completely pointless as crafters will soon see because I'm not going to subsidize someone elses gaming by selling for less than what it costs to make.
Dear Bioware, my Birthday is in March > I'd like to see Purple, Gold, and Teal crystals obtainable by all players and the four major play styles by then. The four major play styles are CRAFTING, SOLO, RAID, and PVP.
