C-store for keys only now?
 
With everything seeming to come out in lockboxs now, am I the only one who is beginning to wonder if what we have in the store is all there will ever be? Esp with the wells now being used as master key bait, are the days of just being able to buy something without gambling over?

Yup, now go get your 29th century ship that comes from an organization which has the explicit purpose of stopping timeline corruption.

Yeah, it's not like they didn't have a ship, a uniform, some overpriced EV suits, and fleet related items released on the C-store since the last lockbox launched, plus two ships, a shuttle, and a doff pack between that one and the previous one. Nothing at all since the first lockbox.

Vesta will be C store. also did we already forget the Regent came out not too long ago, and before that the Armitage class. It has not been that long since a C store ship came out.

As I remember hearing it, the plan was to get 1 new C-Store ship out every 6-8 weeks. They also try to get out 1-2 Uniform Packs per month, and several smaller items like Tribbles, Pets, DOFF Packs, Shuttles, etc.

As far as upcoming ships, we have the Andorian ship, the Merian, the Vesta Class, and the Ambassador Class forthcoming - the Ambassador is supposed to be an Event ship but I assume there will be C-Store version as well, like the Odyssey.

I generally manage to spend 1,000 to 3,000 Zen per month in the C-Store.

Pretty soon we'll see exclusive forum access being made into a lock box prize. What's more, to post a response, we'll have to spend 1 lobi crystal and to create a new thread, you'll have to spend 5 lobi. I'm so excited by the prospect of this new system it sounds chills down my spine.

Edit: While I don't condone the lock box ships, it wouldn't be terribly bad if they released one every 3 months. However, I don't want to see a lock box ship getting released so frequently that c-store ship releases seem scarce. I also don't like all of the fanfare surrounding these lockbox ships when the real fanfare should be around FE's and c-store releases related to events.

How is giving a non-canon, time traveling ship to players in the 25th century defined as "cannon stuff"?

Very True
If only they could put something new in there when the new lock box is launched it might not Seem that way

Folks angry there isn't enough stuff in the Cstore. Hilarious.
