700 Zen per character for a useless suit. Nope. If it was 100 Zen maybe. But for 700 Zen I expect a account wide unlock.

Crypic your going down the ****ter.

The sad thing is you can run a couple of the Tholian missions and get nothing but EVA suits from your requisitions that are all just as decent as the 700 Zen one, lol. I bought a purple quality EVA suit on the exchange for 10,000 EC, but nice try Cryptic. I'm also noticing an alarming trend where new c-store stuff is now per character on a more frequent basis.

Add me to the pile of "too rich for my blood".

If Cryptic feels like experimenting with pricing I expect this one to fail.

Cryptic, I'm happy you finally added the First Contact EVA suits, but $7 for a character unlock is just too much. And the suit's stats aren't any better than the Best Suit drops on Nukara. So the price isn't justified in my eyes, especially people with multiple characters.

For that $7, the suit needs to have better stats or somekind of unique ability and account-wide unlock. After all this is more expensive than current account-wide costumes or even Tier 1 ships.

I'm not mad at you cryptic, I'm just very disappointed you would do this. I really wanted those EV suits too but unfortunately at 700 per character, I'm sorry that's just not worth it, specially when the DS9 pack is priced at $10 and is a much more superior value.

...That is only reasonable explanation I can think of why all this 'feedback' is falling on such deaf ears. All we've received is a proverbial "No Comment."
Nahh everytime Cryptic gets negative feedback they pretty much go dark for a few days, hoping it will blow over, and then when it doesn't they offer some explanation.

Seven HUNDRED? Per character?

Has PWE/Cryptic marketing gone insane?

But as much as I was looking forward to these suits, put me down for None. I guess the people rumor mongering 'per char ships/etc' will have more fuel for their discussion.

Shame these suits look good.

Now partying like its 1999 on the forums.

700 ZEN / $7 per character for a piece of ground armor that is largely only a subjective aesthetic improvement over the suits we have now.
