... After you put it on the Lobi store as a upgrade?

I am saying that thanks to Tribble they kinda let the new Tholian Taskforce reputation on it, allowing everyone to see what it offers, you can even run the projects if you feel so inclined (well could if there was Tholian Marks available)

Let put this way, I am not against that but fact is YOU CHARGED LOBI FOR IT! and even if I dont own it (heck I dont even own a whole set, parts of a set yes with several characters but none complete) its still very in bad taste you decide to put it on the reputation system AFTER you decided to ask Lobi for a upgrade.

This is also a heads up, DONT BOTHER WITH THE BOXES since all you get is vendor trash, if you have boxes unopen SELL THEN NOW!

Telling people not to gamble is like telling people not to drink or smoke.

Not... necessarily. If this is true, then they've realized that Reputation is much more lucrative than the Lobi Store. I'm certain that a lot of people are going to get a bad taste in their mouths, but caveat emptor. On the other hand however, ultimately I hope this is true, and I believe will work better for everyone in the long run. In fact, quite a few other things like the Zen EVA suits would work better as Reputation projects.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

I have never once gotten a box that contained nothing but vendor trash. Every box has contained one or more things that will fetch more from the Exchange than from vendors, and nearly every one has contained things that would fetch far more on the Exchange; even if you don't count the Lobi.

You're entitled to your opinion and to express it here, but the "fact" you presented was simply in error.

That's all a work-in-progress and may not be indicative of how the final version will be -- it's why there were no notes in Tribble. I'm not saying that this set will or won't be there, as things are still being decided on, but until there are Tribble patch notes about it, please remember that it's all not finalized and still WIP.

P.S. Moved the thread to the Tribble feedback forums, as that's what it is.

Cheers,

I spent Lobi on the Crystalline upgrades for one of my character, and would wholeheartedly support these sorts of upgrades being removed from the Lobi store.

The reputation system is a much better place for them...I think the crafting system would be a good spot as well.

There are descriptions on abilities, I found then weaksource besides the T5 that I bet the cries of nerfing will be coming from the usual suspects.

So I checked the other descriptions, I seen ... cannot remember the exact name, it was something Tetryon that I suspect its a hybrid of some sort so I checked the rest and when I seen Cryo Launcher Mk X I guessed the rest but I have a good memory and I recalled there was a upgrade for it with Lobi.

Here is my advice ... LEAVE IT ALONE, its "Markless", of very, very, VERY limited use (current a grand total of one Adventure Zone and one Instance), certainly not at the level of STF sets and we dont need 2 worthless marks nobody gets because spending resources on them is a waste of time, reason people had Mk XI STF sets pre-season 7 was because they were free.

Oh and Syberghost, as it seems you failed to understand I meant [Tholian Equipment Requisition] boxes from Nukara, not I would be technically wrong with Lock Boxes either because, unless you dont play the game, getting then is easy and because of that they have no worth unless they are "retired" and even those dont really worth much.

Lock Box Keys are a different subject ...

Tholian Equipment Requisition boxes can go for some decent EC (like 200k), well the purple and blue ones as the green are worth crap because purple and blue have the chance to give part of the Crystalline set as the green do not, of course chances are you get a worthless EV suit and reason why they are worthless is because by EC value they are very low (I think even normal armor goes for more) and because the exchange is filled with them.

I would kind of expect/hope that if they did put the Mk XII Crystalline Shell in as a reward, that the current version gets bumped up to Mk XII Ultra Rare or is otherwise redone as "Prototype Crystalline Shell".

Partially because, yeah, people did buy it with lobi. Partly, though, because I can't see a good reason to take it out of the lobi store. Then people won't buy it. Why give them for free what they would otherwise have to buy?
