Jem'hadar attack ship in STF's as a drop
 
Cryptic need to put the Jem'hadar attack ship as a low drop rate in the elite STF's

Who agrees?

in STFs? agree

only so elite players can get it?

not a chance. most people don't touch elite, let along elite STFs.

all having a setup like that would do is foster an elitist attitude by those that have the ship (no pun intended)

Another very silly idea.

The ship is meant to be rare people, it is intentional, it is the design, the idea, the purpose of it.

Do we get other ship drops, never!

The ship is meant to be a gift we can keep or give to someone else because of the time of year it is. It has nothing to do with STF or obtaining it through many other ways that will only give people another reason to create complaint threads saying like like "I've played STF 1000 times in Dec and still never got the ship, I think this is criminal".

Whether from exchanging Borg Salvage, or from C-Store credits, I think there should be multiple ways fo earning this ship.

hmmm
 
It will be back I am sure of it. I see a Easter Basket in the C-Store coming.. Even it being sold out right for limited time.

Every single one of your sentences is a non sequitur.

*Whether or not it is a drop has no bearing on whether or not it is rare.

*We do not get other ships from drops. We also do not get other ships from lottery ticket gift boxes.

*It is true that a Jem'Hadar attack ship has nothing to do with the current STFs. It also has nothing to do with Christmas or winter either, so I am uncertain of the relevance of your point.

Making the ship some kind of rare drop that does not involve spending money would be a vast improvement, in my opinion. The STF's seem to be as good of a mechanism as anything.

Why would you get Jem'Hadar tech from fighting Borg?

Frankly, I don't care if it doesn't become available some other way. There'll be other stuff. But if it is going to be added it should be either a complete OOC means, or one that makes sense from an IC perspective.

Maybe as part of an accolade, requiring you to complete all 5 upcoming DS9 feature episodes on elite, solo from start to finish. It doesn't cost you anything, it doesn't require much extra work for Cryptic and it'll keep it somewhat rare.

I like the idea of getting that ship with methods that do not include spending multiple thousand Cryptic points, but for the OPs suggestion... just like with the STF gear I dislike the Idea of beeing dependent entirely on luck and randomness.

Put that ship... and others like it... to the STF-vendors for a big chunk of rare borg particles.... 100 or 200. Or whatever is reasonable.
That might be something that keeps people motivatet to work for it and only those who REALLY REALLY want that ship will end up with it, and only after a really big amount of time and work.
That would make it "Rare" in a good way.

This idea, or something like it will probably never happen. Cryptic...and myself, feel this ship should be rarer than latinum. Doesn't make sense for so many people to be flying around in a 40 year old warship from one of your enemies.

Sorry guys, but I hope this item stays as rare as it is.

I'm not a PVP'er, and don't really know what the Jem Had'ar ship is capable of IN a PVP match, so can someone that IS into PVP tell me this;

Is this ship capable, in the right hands, of being serious butt-kicker in a PVP match?

From all the controversy about the ship I'm wondering if it''s just that great of a ship to be causing
so much static over.

To me it seems like there is a segment of players that HAVE TO HAVE an item just because they
see another player with it. There's a jelousy factor involved in having to acquire EVERY SINGLE ITEM in the game just because others have it. I call it the "pokemon factor" - Gotta' collect em' all.

If I get it in a gift box, fine. If it don't, also fine. Life doesn't begin and end with a jem had'ar ship.

If your happiness in life revolves around getting a single jem had'ar ship, you need to see some
medical help that involves getting a prescription for some prozac because you obviously have
"issues".
