Rewarding members based upon their individual contributions will certainly reward the richest players who hoard items and dilithium with even nicer stuff. It also seems to punish the players who would (and have) given away their last energy credit to help out someone else. I'm not sure how this system will actually work, but it does seem to be rather counter-intuitive. It seems like it rewards the player for helping the fleet, but I think it would also promote a more selfish approach. Perhaps I'm overreacting, but the devs seem to have killed any remnant of altruism left in this game.
Anyway, here is the link to the article.
