Lohlunat Pearls Bundle Box! O.o
I mean, c'mon, do we have to pay almost 5,000 Zen for a single bundle?! What about those of us who do NOT have enough Dilithium (--> Zen) on them to buy the much needed Lockboxes?! Not to mention that we don't have the time for acquiring those bundles anymore... Tomorrow, it expires anyway.
Now, the Pearls, let's say, could cost us around 40 - 50 Zen coins, while the Corvette... 1,000 - 1,250? :-) Yes, the Event may pass and expire, but then we would have a *real* chance at acquiring what we couldn't during the Event period itself! And such Events, in their whole, would then become a *seasonal* type of entertainment here, but one that wouldn't leave anyone with *grudges and envy* because one could NOT participate in it fully and/or because one could NOT collect enough... 'stuff' for claiming the Big Prize. ^_^ So, please, make the Pearls available via Z-Store, as well as the Risian Corvette itself. For differentiated prices, as suggested before, of course. ^_^
How about NO? If you can't find the time to run the event 25 times (once per day) that's your problem. Those pearl boxes cost 5 lobi not 50.

If they shove the Winter and Summer event ships into the C-Store just to satisfy you whiners why bother having those events at all? Those ships are limited time only for a reason. You don't need them that badly do you?
