First, as I said above, I earn 3,000 Zen per month in total: 500 from my Stipend and 2,500 more from playing. That's enough for me to buy a new C-Store ship each month and Keys - though I don't buy Keys as I have no real interest in Lockboxes.

Second, as I also said above, Lockboxes make the company money. That money pays for development. We have Fleetbases because Lockboxes paid to develop them. We'll have a new Zone and Missions with Season 7 because Lockboxes paid to develop them. Lockboxes make money, which pays for everything else.

Third, anyone spending $400.00-$500.00 to get a Lockbox ship is an major idiot who should be sterilized so-as to not pass on their lunacy.

3000 zen wouldn't be enough either if you didn't notice I said I spend 4 to 500 hundred trying to get the lock box ship. 3k zen is what? a $30 shot? Still wouldn't notice it much. Although that would get me a few 10 packs so maybe I would notice it.

2nd. Yes, I do agree, it makes the company money and allot of it. I am saying if you spend allot on the game there needs to be more of a reward compared to someone who is a cheapskate and isn't interested in the lock box ships. Hell, how can you defend it if you aren't even a person who actually does spend on the lock boxes? You have no room or basis to talk about it.

3rd how can you brag about how lock boxes make the company money and defend that (yet not spend any money on it yourself) then state someone is an idiot for making the company money? Troll, go post on something you actually have the right to talk about.

Actually I'll open a new thread on the other 2 points. This thread got focused on the insanely expensive point and missed the other 2.

If you're spending $400.00+ dollars on Lockbox ships you have a problem. It's a problem you need to recognize and address. There's no Tholian ship worth $400.00 - especially when the game will eventually have a level-cap increase and will go to T6 ships. So you spent $400.00 on a ship that will be obsolete in a year or so.

It's great that you're making Cryptic money, but spending that much money is also bad for them. It creates a false sense of entitlement in the person spending all that money - and that leads to increased negativity as time goes on. And that turns forums into warzones and creates bad press for potential newbs.

Everything in life works best in moderation; for you and for Cryptic.

$400 - $500 Dollars? Really?

Look I have bought keys, Z-Mart ships, fleet modules, packs, services, etc, etc. Some with Real World money, some by grinded moneys (Dil to Zen).. but have not come even close to that level of expense. And you're talking about spending that much in a matter of weeks?

Seriously, no ship NO SHIP is worth that type of expenditure... for that matter, with that amount of investment, you should have been able to sell many of the items from the boxes, or purchased with Lobi to purchase the ship you were looking for.

In fact you have to have sold many items... banks and inventory aren't that big...

Oh please tell me you haven't just been recycling them... or discarding them

I have been putting them up but no one is buying. I have 8 mirror ships up but not one has sold. There are just too many of everything on the market so started just selling to vendors or discarding. I still have like 10 mirror ships I haven't destroyed yet. I started giving them away. There are only a few items you can get from lockboxes and you get the same junk over and over and over and over. Rarely do you get anything useful. I am still trying to get my escort outfitted with all phased cannons level XII.
