Love the new Romulan Survivor Duty Officer Pack! I have already opened like plus 20 something! I would like to have my entire ship filled with these new duty officers in the future!

Since I have reached my 400 crew member max, a snag has arisen that I hope can be dealt with rather quickly. I was hoping to purchase more packs, however, currently, the only option to replace old under preforming duty officers, is to "dismiss" each one individually. This is due to the "reassign Under Preforming Officers" assignment not recognizing alined faction (Klingon/Federation) duty officer species, and now, also not recognizing the newly required duty officers, from the "Romulan Survivor Duty Officer Pack" released today.

Can this bug be fixed? I would really like to purchase more packs, without having to dismiss individual duty officers, with no upgrade. Thanks.

its a shame i cant buy zen. it keeps asking me to log into pay pal and saying ive got the wrong password. then when i change my password and enter all info it says to go to the bank in 3 days blah blah to verfiy account, im not traveling 30miles just to check a bank satement.

why cant i pay without sighning into to paypal like i used to do.?

ive tryed every payment option but cant seem to get any of them to charge my card.any chance of fixing this soon?

i have money and i want to give it to cryptic but all this jumping through hoops has put me off.

The big prize is bugged. You can't switch back to your other ships when you go to the bridge.

Please put out a 20% discount on this pack - i don't want to buy 100 to get the Cell - 500 doffs?

but there are like 2 on the exchange @ $230 million - and there are only a few packs too.

I don't know how well the packs are selling so I don't know if people are just keeping them - or what?

If not a sale discount would certainly spur some demand - i could also buy more with Zen.

Doffs Full, Won't Buy
Ok, a nice looking pack. But here is where Cryptic has shot itself in the foot. Even with 400 Doff slots I find it pretty hard to open the pack because my roster is already full. --> I used to be able to store doffs via mail <-- however I no longer can. So if I can't store doffs how do I open another pack? Well I can dismiss doffs and get 1 Dilithium. Oh wow! Who wants to throw their stuff away just to have the privilege of spending another $2.75 USD to throw some more doffs away at one one-hundredth of a cent?

Cryptic should either A) sell more Doff slots ($$$), B) fix the mail system, C) increase Dilithium for dismissed doffs, D) allow fleets to pay doffs into a deposit only depository, or E) all of the above.

Until they do something to fix the Doff issue I can't see this new pack selling as much as they want it to, unless they expect us to throw all of the doff prizes away and keep trying for the ship.

You nailed it. They can't simply sell random chances -- that's gambling. So they have to sell a near worthless product (white quality DOFFs with the occasional blue.)

Goal here is to sell you chances to win the ship -- odds of winning are one in not-bloody-likely.

The mail system was switched over to a completely new system and to reduce database size the limit of 100 items stored in the mail system was enabled.

You can either use the excess, buy more doffs slots (if you haven't filled yours), dismiss for 1 dil, or sell them on the exchange which coincidentally has also restored common doff exchange prices to the proper levels for common items.

It's all bu grand design and they're not going to change it so quit your whining and deal with it, it's not like you don't have several options.

I realize how petty this is, but my biggest issue with this pack is that the DOffs I got from it have a blue border instead of a green one. I'm a fed-Rom, and my DOff list already has too many damn blue-bordered Fed types. You'd think the Romulan pack would have actual Romulan DOffs.

These boxes... is the worst thing that happened in STO ever. But what else you expect from a company like PWE who bought Cryptic and their game. Long live and prosper. Oh yeah, they'll definitely prosper hehe. ;)
