I'll give my most over-generlization possible;

>Anything gameplay related(IE: ships, weapons, etc) should all be obtainable in game(without very obnoxious grinds)
>Any item you are purchasing with real life money should be 100%, not a random chance(this is just my personal opinion of course)

Many people won't be able to resist the urge at the lottery, and while I'm not one of those people I think it's DISGUSTING that Cryptic would abuse people in such a manner. If the grab bags were purchased with a form of ingame currency or some system like that; I would have a LOT less problem with it - but with the last iteration it's just, frankly disgusting.

Obviously I can choose or NOT to purchase the item(and I most definetly didn't), but I just think it's a scummy thing to do in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I want the game to make money; just like I want to keep my job but I'm not going to go against my moral fiber to do so.
