Pre-order goodies to C-Store
 
So because the game is going free to play, and there won't be any point in pre-ordering or buying the game in stores, would it be possible to have all of pre order goodies being purchasable via C-Store? The auto defence battery console as an example.

It was stated a while ago that pre-order items would be eventually turning up on the C-store, apart from the red-matter capacitor. I cannot wait for the other items to appear. I personally hope these appear:

TR-116
Multi-Spatial Personal Shield
Chromodynamic Body Armor
Neodymium Deflector Array
Light-Phaser Satellite Turret
EMH Science Console
Automated Defense Battery Console
Radiometric Converter Engineering Console

It would be preferable to make these items level up as their current stats aren't that good for high-level players.

I'd like to point out, as I have MANY times before, that the RED MATTER CAPACITOR is NOT A PRE-ORDER ITEM, and has NO PLACE IN THE C-STORE. It was an item for people who bought the Collector's Edition, which you can still buy.

Thanks you. ^_^

Some of the items are also horribly unbalanced and should never be added to the C-Store.

TR-116: Can shoot through ANYTHING, need I say more?
Automated Defense Battery Console: Makes you virtually "immune" to HY Plasma and Tricobalt torpedoes.

the TR-116 should defiantly be added, and borg can't adapt to it, need I say more?

I have the automated defense battery and have been killed many, many times with HY torps.. plasma and tri's alike. The turret is not an I-Win button by any stretch of the imagination.

I see no reason whatsoever not to have it released to the C-Store.

The reasons I bought the CE were the uniforms.... they were among the first items ending up in C-Store. And unlike the LTAs that start screaming with every singel hint that their precious Borg might end up being available in some way I never complained since I believe everybody should have the same things available without paying twice or 3 times for the same (especially when it is about canon STAR TREK stuff)
Thats why I have no issues with the red matter capacitor following...

About the deffense turret and the TR being OP... well that might be correct... but as long as SOME people have them and others cant its even more unbalanced.

ROFL... why would you want that piece of **** now that you can get the Point defence system wich is WAY more effective?

Sorry... Wrong: With recent changes to HY Plasmas, you get hit by them quite often...

Edit: No really... With the Point defence system, and the changes to plasmas, this is really not an effective item any more... it used to be, yes, and I know the Point defence system can only be mounted on escorts, but the turret is no longer viable beyond Lt Cmdr.

I'd just like to have the EMH Console. I have most of the other stuff, the only really useful thing is the TR.
