I agree with the KDF problem. I think that has a terrible about the KDF faction have a smaller selection of ships, in C-store or Dilithium. Would be amazing if the Dev's make more products like ships, uniforms and other things.
But the idea of this topic is to replace or improve those lower and unwanted rewards, which frustrate and has little practical value in the game. Consumables? A lot of people hate the "special" consumables from lock boxes or cadres because have a low amount (10 units) or are subtly useless but with a really short-time effect.
Are great if you gain this in any duty mission, event or a random drop in middle of your game, but to get this after spending 100 c-points in a key or 220 in a cadre is really frustrating.
Instead of receiving some really cheap consumable items, with poor function, the player receives something that was more useful, Or could have fun in some way or maybe add a new experience to the game, everyone would win.
You get a combat horta with 10 units? Or a item to restore and buff your whole team (again, 10 units)? Ok, this helps and sounds good. But paying 100 or 220 C-points to get this make the item seem ridiculous, unnecessary.
If you spend 100 or 220 C-points, should come at least a larger number of units or have some advantage linked, like a higher value to refine dilithium for next two hours after opening a cadre or something to help earn extra EC for a limited time, etc.
If you take a small reward after opening a cadre or a box, you have a small buff to your game.
Or have some novelty items or something to collect, to place in your starbase, ship deck or wear. If you have a better change to get some limited rewards like a small changes, like piece of outift, part of a whole set to use in any KDF or FED Toon, this can sell better instead a 10-units item to give a small buff.
An example? Look to Mercenary Outfit from out-duty FED. If the Devs make a variant or a better version to KDF and FED, to collect each part opening lock boxes or Cadres, can be really better. More parts to collect, more items to buy and try to collect.
Boots, pants, shirt, skirt, vest or armor, armbands, backpack, helmet... 8 items at least. And you have to spend 1760 C-points to take this in 8 duty cadres, if you are great with tons of luck to get all in the first time, in each time.
Because the "lotery" system, you get all of this from random drops, and can trade the items that already have with other players or in the exchange. Or can try opening by yourself a lot of cadres or lockboxes to get all set.
Again, my text is not about to buy directly one item from C-store or make something only to KDF. Is about to get better small and middle rewards or have rewards in "sets", in limited edition, but really cool to collect and you can have a better chance to get at least one of these items, but have to spend a lot of c-points or trade with a lot of people to get the full set.
A better reward is something like a popular set. Looks cool, is good to use, you hare happy to receive and can trade if wish... Everyone can take a piece or two but not the same kind of item or part. And to take the whole set need money or time.
This is something to worth, to spend your money. The past cadre promotion with lobi are good because you get 10 lobi anyway in any cadre and can collect to buy items in the lobi store. Win.
Now the new cadre have an unique ship. Great, we love ships, we love ships... But the middle and low rewards really sucks. Ok, the duty officers are really good and add great value ingame. But you are paying to get this and is not your reward. If you have the right to get a MK I or better rare or very rare console or ship weapon in each cadre can be really better instead from a stupid consumable to leave to your tribbles eat.
Want something cool? Leave a better small prizes, like numerous parts of romulan clothes to make two or more sets, opening cadres. Or make some unique ship and players devices to work just to fun. A special ship device to change the color of your energy trail or to get a unique color pattern can be really wanted. Or perhaps an item to show holographically the flag of your fleet in space, close of your ship.
Is useful? Really no. But can be fun, looks cool, you can use this in any PVE, PVP, RP or just for fun to take screenshots.
Want something cool to use ? As example (and only an example) make a workable flamethrowers with backpack, having cooldown time for ground mission, with a small chance to explode. This kind of item can be wrong from common game, but if come in a limited reward from one-time promotion, can really works and looks fun. Is like the Ferengi whip, have a unique visual, looks cool and is really cheap in stats. But popuplar and easy to get if you spend the right amount of money of have some luck in the promotions and events.
