# 1 2nd Anniversary Grab Bag
12-13-2011, 03:00 AM
The winter grab bag seems to be a smashing success. After only a few days Cryptic must have sold hundreds of these things.

So what do you think are the odds we'll see them come back during the 2nd Anniversary?

Maybe we'll finally have a chance to get a TR-116 rifle. Or maybe the golden ticket will be husnock warship or Liberated borg sphere.

Would you have a problem if these grab bag celebrations become the norm in STO?

I would have a problem with grab bags becoming the norm. However, I wouldn't waste any currency on such things.

I think grab-bags will become the norm, as much as it saddens me.

They're definitely an easy way to drop that 100 C-Store points in change you have...

I thought those were supposed to go onto the Dilithium market.

1. there not only for anniversarys/holidays i don't know what gave you that impression other than them getting released in december.

2.WE WILL see these on a regular basis.

3.people will get angry about them, especialy once they start throwing in VET rewards and stuff like that, but it will settle down by this time next year since we have no choice there buisness plan is basicly "if you dont like it F off" where as when we was a paying customer they had to at least pretend to listen to us.

4.i dont have a problem with them, i just have a problem with the communications between the game and the fans, take that dev post the other day basicly just saying forum goers are crying babys - stuff like that, even if true dosnt need to be said by someone from a compnay WE keep alive. disgracfull.

just refer to the link in my sig as to the lotto boxes

Its simple really, if they have made a lot of money from the lottery bags then they would be stupid to not use them again...... They would also be stupid to add the dominion attack ship to the c-store unless they plan to never add that to a drop bag again...... Would you rather have people throwing cash at you for something they "might" get......spending lots on money on C-points.... or have a set price for something like 800 c-points?

You can rage and whine about it on the forums but people will always buy them due to greed and the need to gamble....... You can rage quit but this is going F2P soon so you will soon be replaced by many more people withing to throw cash at Cryptic and PW......... From a money making point of view.... PW and Cryptic have been very clever.

If they were collectible cosmetic items (a permanent holo emitter that turned your ship into a Jem'Hadar, or even a JH ship with the same stats as other escorts) I really wouldn't care.

Since they've decided instead to release the best, most powerful ships in the game in them, then yes, I mind enough that I'm quitting.

I am sure we're going to be seeing the grab bags all the time from now on. I will not spend another penny on them.

They're a complete rip off, and definitely not the direction I think Cryptic should be going. However, it is the direction I expect they will be going.
