To be honest, a lot of folks preferred this over the lock boxes when they ran the last promotion with the gamma quadrant doff packages. With the lock boxes, you stood a very good change of receiving nothing of value. At least with these, you're going to get a selection of doffs that you can use.

A lot of those folks had anti lock box images in their sigs in that thread.

of the two, I would rather have something like this over the lock boxes we also have.

I bought those new DOff packs for the new Flight Officers and got EXACTLY what I wanted pretty much off the first pull.

I didn't get ripped off.

I bought $50 worth of zen, spent 2000 on the ship sale, and spent the rest on duty officers. In keeping with my luck, no freighter. Nice new duty officers, though I am seeing a lot of white now.

I was hoping that the freighter would be easier to get, and it may be for someone with normal gambling luck.

It's PWs business model to create revenue. After Lock Boxes got a bad mood with the community the model was changed into the Officer packs.

I'll take the DOFF pack + bonus something over lockboxes ANY day.

I purchased DOFF packs. I received DOFF's. The bonus extras were exactly that - bonus extra's - a nice extra perk on top of the purchase of something I wanted/needed anyway. I may not have gotten the Tuffli, but I did obtain a Powered Alien Artifact in one pack I opened, which (subsequent to a DOFF assignment) yielded a very nice MkXII console.

Are you paying 220cp for a doff pack?
Were you paying 220 for a doff pack last month?

There is no con just because you don't get the super lucky lottery prize.

The ship is in addition to the normal doffs, its a bonus, the cost of the pack has not been raised.
