i think cryptic missed a missed a massive opportunity here and should of placed this after the start of LoR by a week, perhaps 2 in order for the RR toons to benefit from this. you also could of done FE rerun, CE event and a zen promotion as well, make things interesting. then put out another lockbox at the start of LoR as the dominion lock box is retired to the event a week or 2 later.

Hopefully this will cause the Temporal ships to come down in price on the exchange.

Lockbox ships will temporarily go down if more people are winning but, after launch, keys will go way down and ships will go up.

How does it change anything? Buy the keys now, use them later with your Romulan char.

Keys are already going to be flooding the market come 21st May from the legacy packs so surely a sale on other more usable/practical stuff such as character slots, respec tokens or other stuff people will want to use would have been better.

Neriz --- Eleven --- S'alesh --- Nizalay and maybe the odd Fed char too.

bad timing...

#1 more players would use this if it was AFTER the LoR release

#2 this means the TalShiar LockBox will be released SOON... maybe TOO SOON?

Come on, at least let the returning players get some romulan level 50 chars before you drop the next LockBox stuff on our heads. 1 Month AFTER LoR releases would be ok.

The purpose of a sale is to get people to spend money when they wouldn't have, or to get people to spend money with you instead of your competitor when they would have spent money anyway.

Holding a sale when people were already going to spend money with you in large numbers just leaves profit on the table, instead of increasing it. However, you could buy lots and lots of keys now, and wait for the new box to use them.
