Gambling for money is illegal. There is no money to win, so no federal or state ristrictions can apply. Now if there was a $100 prize that would be diffrent.

Also Nagus, the Lottery is run by the states not private companies, thats how they can get by the law.

In short this is not true gambling, therefore Cryptic has done nothing wrong. I would rather the list be shorter though, so I can get a Jem'Hadrar ship. :p

They're not making you buy it. Just play the Q games and try to win them.

Or trade DL for C-points and buy it from the store without spending any real money.

Bought one for my main character. We'll see what's in it next time I'm ingame. I've got my fingers crossed for the ship, of course.

I do sincerely hope that these Jem'Hadar ships will eventually be available in the C-Store. I really prefer account-wide unlocks for ships, and I'm willing to pay for that priviledge.

Just like any other retail enterprise. Don't you love the corporate holiday spirit?

My first impression was that this might be cool. But then I saw that you get ONE of things on the list randomly. I HATE random packs like this. And so do most people. That's why Trading Card Games have started switching to the "Living" format where you know what you're getting. The Jem'Hadar ship sounds cool, but I'm not spending 100 C-points to MAYBE get something cool when there is a lot of CRAP in the mix as well.

I'm sure 90% of these packs will give XP boosts which are useless to VA's. Or pets which are similarly worthless.
