I hate calling for new tech but I really wish we could have an EV suit costume slot where we pick the look for our EV suits, even if there's no color adjustment.

Also if the suit itself can be sold or traded, does that mean we can wear cross faction EV suits?

To the best of my knowledge, no equippable gear is faction flagged.

My other question is whether pre-level 50 characters can wear them and if the stats scale down because, if not, I think I just found my armor of choice for leveling characters.

I suppose that sort of makes sense.

I mean, I get they need to make some money off this. That's fine, really. I'm not gonna demand these be 200Z account-wide unlocks or something stupid like that. But is lowering to 500Z each really that much to ask?

Im glad these are finally here but I'm sorry 700 zen for per character is really high. 1400 for both is almost painful!

a smaller figure like 200 per toon would be better or 700 per account would be ok as its a visual and its functional.

700 Zen... awesome... gonna fit out all my Chars with those
1400 Zen is a bit pricey for FED + KDF chars but ok whatever, i'm used to the double dipping by now....

Note: This item is a Character unlock that can be traded or sold on the Exchange. If you discard, sell, trade or use a Federation Combat Environmental Suit, you will NOT be able to claim a free replacement from the C-Store.



NO i will not spend 7700 Zen on a Friggen Space Suit!

700 zen PER CHARACTER? If I have 4 Federation toons and I want to put a Starfleet EV suit on them (because starfleet officers SHOULD HAVE ACCESS to a starfleet suit). I feel like Cryptic is saying "screw you, pay up". 700 zen per account I can get behind, but this is just wrong.

700 Zen for a single character unreplenishable EV suit? Are you effing serious? 300, 400, hell even 500 would suffice. But 700? You're out of your damned greedy minds.

Cryptic, you do realize that Champions Online (Cryptic's other MMO) offers account-wide costume unlocks for 475 zen. Why is Star Trek Online so much more expensive?

Ridiculous price for a non account wide unlock for a bunch of freaking pixels.

I'll try to be calm about this:

I'm not against per character transactions. I'm against per character transactions at per account prices. A per character ship should not be $20. A per character ground item should not be $7. Reasonable prices would be $5 and $0.50, respectively.

I hope no one buys it. Maybe the price will go lower after they see Total First Day sales of $21.
