Well I noticed the price of Contraband had skyrocket into the 50k area - so something is up - and not just the price.

a little heads up, i have 6 cb now.. in 8 missions that has been steadily handing me 20 to 30 cb per mission


i hope its a bug and they fix it.. cause right now it seems slavers are useless.


i think it is the cool down on the stealing..

before when you launched a new slaver it would instantly try to steal something. you oould pump out 6 slavers every 20 seconds or so..

now they do it once.. and then fly around until they get killed before trying to steal again.

im noticing the blue ring around the cube is not flashing near as much as it used to.

I spent 60k dill on Advanced Slavers and they are getting crap now, what did you guys do, even when I play stfs I was getting at least 6 - 12 contraband a mission I have been playing contraband farming foundry missions for a few hours today and have not gotten 1 contraband. This sucks cryptic re do the slavers for the love of the empire re do them.

Everyone knows why Craptic did this, there was a bug "somewhere" that allowed you to farm lots and lots and lots of contraband.

HOWEVER, this is just a convenient excuse, cryptics had their sights set on nerfing slavers for awhile now. They are aiming to dilute contraband returns in general, since the influx of people farming, then selling them for EC and trading them in for dilithium. <both of these things allow ppl to avoid buying ZEN> Contraband is going to be nerfed several more times until it is no longer even possible to really farm it, that is the point. Cryptic isnt going to allow anything to exist in game that makes either them or their Chinese overlords lose ANY money. Period.

Although it is not really too surprising, I think most of us should be given our 60k dilithium back, <yeah right when pigs fly> although I know Craptic and PW are laughin all the way to the bank.. RoR.



Yeah, that's right.

I am using slavers for about 3-4 months now. I never got anything from them. I never noticed any loot. Now, i am using the advanced slavers, and still nothing.

so i maxed out my dil for today on my first char, ended up with 7 contraband..

switched to my other char, this one has elite slavers..

so far 5 missions later. no contraband, OR rare commodities..


i understand the need to make rare things rare, but nerfing it out of existence is ridiculous.

specially since they said they made the drop rate 3x more.. which is a not what im experiencing.


if this is how it is, id rather have elite to'duj instead of elite slavers

I have been doing missions for about a few hours now and still only commodities and some energy credits, no contraband yet, this sucks cryptic you need to change the slavers back that's why we all spent dill. Because they got contraband now they are useless.

Had to voice my opinion here as well.. I have been waiting a long time for this fix, only to find it is not a FIX, it's a nerf. Elite slavers were/are expensive and they are not bought for their fighting skill.. they were bought because they robbed contraband.

I would join an Elite Infected Space pug and I didn't care if the pugs messed it up.. it would just net me more contraband .. but those days were gone after romulan season. In fact I haven't got anything since that season started.

In short I am jumping on the please FIX wagon.. bring back the skilled orion slavers that I bought.. put it back to the way it was....
