1. Have you participated in a Lock box event in STO before? And if so, which ones?
Yes, All 3 (Holiday Box, Cardi, Ferengi

2. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the MOST and why?
Holiday Box, everyone got to participate.

3. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the LEAST and why?
Ferengi box, boxes spamming inventory, server-wide announcements, didn't feel very good when some boxes only contained lobi-crystals.

4. What rewards did you enjoy the most in previous lock boxes
Duty Officer Cadres, CXP boosts, Boffs, and the interesting unique rewards like Holonovel Fragments, the holiday costumes/boots/snowballs, ect.

5. What kind of rewards would you like to see in future lock boxes.
Maybe some playable races? I also think this could be a good way to distribute old forgotten rewards like you did with the photonic boff, maybe pre-order rewards, ect.

6. Rate your feelings towards the following on a scale from 1 to 10, (1 being VERY NEGATIVE, 10 being VERY POSITIVE, and 5 Neutral.)

General:

-Holiday Giftbox 9

-Costumes 7
-Pets 5
-Unique Consumables 2


7. What are your feelings on the Lobi Crystal store? What do you like about it, and how do you think it could be improved?
I think it was a good idea, but the prices need to definitely come down. If this is going to turn into a monthly/bi-monthly thing I think the top rewards shouldn't require you to spend more than $100.

8. What kind of rewards do you want to see in the Lobi Crystal store
I would like to see some of the rewards out of the current or previous box in the store, for example the ship consoles are fairly rare. It might be nice to throw those in there for people who aren't lucky enough to get them.


9. What would your Ideal lock box system look like. (Give details on acquisition of boxes, rewards, ect)
-Keys are gone, boxes can be bought from the store and opened directly.
-There are other ways to get boxes without paying (A daily, maybe a DOFF mission)
-Lobi Crystals are in every box at a reasonable rate, but you always get another reward in addition
-Jackpots are a Zone-wide announcement instead of server-wide
-[Can do with or without) Gold box is extremely-rare tradable drop, can also be found in STF lootbags ect. Only contains Rare+ or Uncommon+ Rewards (Depending on how rare they really are) This will make people more interested in playing during these events.
-[Can do with or without] Boxes can be more expensive if they have really good rewards, as long as what you pay is always less than or equal to what you get.

Very Rare
Unique Ship
Cross-Faction Ship

Rare
Unique Boff
Unique/Retired/C-store Playable Race
Cross-faction Consoles
Shuttle

Uncommon
Unique Officer Cadre
Boff/Doff/Character Slot Tokens

1. Have you participated in a Lock box event in STO before? And if so, which ones?
Cardassian, Ferengi

2. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the MOST and why?
None so far

3. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the LEAST and why?
Both Cardassian and Ferengi so far. Ferengi is slightly worse then Cardassian one

4. What rewards did you enjoy the most in previous lock boxes
None of the "rewards" I've gotten from any boxes so far were worth it.

5. What kind of rewards would you like to see in future lock boxes.
Since there is almost no difference between green and gold boxes they should just merge them into a single box type that only have ships (not necessarily just a super unique one, but possible also a c-store ship token or other tier 5 ship token), very rare consoles, a large quantity 10-15 doff cadre pack with special doffs, pets, costumes, unigue very rare birdge officers

6. Rate your feelings towards the following on a scale from 1 to 10, (1 being VERY NEGATIVE, 10 being VERY POSITIVE, and 5 Neutral.)

General:

-Holiday Giftbox 1 (because I wasn't around for it and they haven't released some of the items)
-Cardassian Lock Box 4
-Ferengi Lock Box 4
-Lobi Crystals 1
-"Gold" Lock Box 1 (ALL gold boxes should be tradable)
-Master Keys 2

Rewards:
ALL rewards should be tradeable!!
-Ships 10
-Consoles 8 (only if very rare unique consoles)
-"Toys" (Non-stat oriented playthings like party-poppers) 1
-Unique Duty Officers/Bridge Officers 8
-Costumes 5 (low because of lobi crystal BS)
-Pets 2 (should be combat pets only)
-Unique Consumables 1 (these shouldn't ever be in a box or should be in a "super budget box"


7. What are your feelings on the Lobi Crystal store? What do you like about it, and how do you think it could be improved?
The Lobi Crystals should only be a way for people to save up to buy certain box items that they aren't having any luck getting, and DEFINITELY should not be that expensive. if you open 10 boxes and get nothing but useless junk then there's something wrong with the whole thing. Having the Lobi Crystals still be a way of getting something you want for all the keys you've purchased would help eliminate some of the buyers remorse.

8. What kind of rewards do you want to see in the Lobi Crystal store
holo-emitters with no time restrictions, very rare unique consoles (also available from the boxes), costumes, pets, toys, doff assignment materials


9. What would your Ideal lock box system look like. (Give details on acquisition of boxes, rewards, ect)
-Masterkeys are no more than 25 or 50 cp each
-There are other ways to get boxes without paying (A daily, maybe a DOFF mission)
-Lobi Crystals are in every box at a reasonable rate, but you always get another reward in addition
-Gold box is a tradeable very rare drop, and are also recieved from completing STF (both normal and elite) along with fleet actions and events (Defera, vault, etc.). Only contain level appropriate rare or very rare rewards
-Odds of winning are finally posted

The mystery boxes should also be reworked to have unique rewards specific to that box and should contain:

retain, respec tokens, ships tokens, bank increase tokens, ship slot increase tokens, invent increase token, and other various items of the same type. Mystery Boxes should cost 100cp to open and contents cannot be traded or sold on the exchange except in stacks of 5. Items can however be traded to a players other character(s).

10. Is there anything important that the survey questions missed that you would like to add-in?

Maybe should add a question on if a person has not done anything with the lock boxes what is somthing that could be added or changed that would make them interested in using the lockboxes

1. Have you participated in a Lock box event in STO before? And if so, which ones?
Cardassian, Ferengi, Tholian

2. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the MOST and why?
Tholian. Lobi Crystals, cheaper master keys, cooler ships, better usable reward packs, better Lobi rewards.

3. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the LEAST and why?
Cardassian. Lack of Lobi Crystals. Lack of decent rewards.

4. What rewards did you enjoy the most in previous lock boxes
Powerful hybrid ships weapons, costume variants.

5. What kind of rewards would you like to see in future lock boxes.
More powerful ship weapons, exclusive space and ground sets, new exclusive ships and shuttles.

6. Rate your feelings towards the following on a scale from 1 to 10, (1 being VERY NEGATIVE, 10 being VERY POSITIVE, and 5 Neutral.)

General:

7. What are your feelings on the Lobi Crystal store? What do you like about it, and how do you think it could be improved?
I would like to see older box event rewards remain in the Lobi Store...for example: keep the Ferengi and Tholian rewards in the store for newer player to aquire them. and put box exlcusive ships in the Lobi store 2-6 months after the box events end, so players that didnt get that rare drop can still save crystals to buy the older ships boxdrops.

More exclusive costumes, costume materials, ship materials, new ship costumes, pets, exlusice melee weapons, hats/helmets.

9. What would your Ideal lock box system look like. (Give details on acquisition of boxes, rewards, ect)
Box aquisition is fine as is. Lockbox key system is fine, maybe see larger bundles at reduced prices.

10. Is there anything important that the survey questions missed that you would like to add-in?
No

1. Have you participated in a Lock box event in STO before? And if so, which ones?
Tholian

2. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the MOST and why?
None of them because I haven't opened any.

3. Which version of the lock box event have you enjoyed the LEAST and why?
Tholian because it is the only one I have seen and they drop so often, they waste inventory space for something I have no interest in.

4. What rewards did you enjoy the most in previous lock boxes
None. Not opened any.

5. What kind of rewards would you like to see in future lock boxes.
None, I would rather the system is scrapped.

6. Rate your feelings towards the following on a scale from 1 to 10, (1 being VERY NEGATIVE, 10 being VERY POSITIVE, and 5 Neutral.)

General:

-Holiday Giftbox N/A
-Cardassian Lock Box N/A
-Ferengi Lock Box N/A
-Lobi Crystals 5
-"Gold" Lock Box 1
-Master Keys 1

Rewards:

-Ships 8
-Consoles 7
-"Toys" (Non-stat oriented playthings like party-poppers) 6
-Unique Duty Officers/Bridge Officers 4
-Costumes 4
-Pets 5
-Unique Consumables 1


7. What are your feelings on the Lobi Crystal store? What do you like about it, and how do you think it could be improved?
It has a unique sword. Could use more alternative weapons.

8. What kind of rewards do you want to see in the Lobi Crystal store
Unique stuff.

9. What would your Ideal lock box system look like. (Give details on acquisition of boxes, rewards, ect)
They wouldn't drop excessively. Pricing would be very very cheap, a matter of cents/pennies or provide a very large number of keys to make the cost per box very cheap. Rewards would not be random but use tokens that allow you to purchase stuff. The gambling element should be removed entirely!

10. Is there anything important that the survey questions missed that you would like to add-in?
I have some severe misgivings about the system that I would like to address. Namely:
A: The promotion of gambling large sums of money to obtain a rare item.
B: Lack of trust that what I will get from a box will be worth the outlay of opening it. Currently I view them as an irritant in-game and a bit of a scam. Same for similar schemes such as Mann Co. Crates in TF2.
C: They drop excessively and are wasting inventory space as I don't know what I will do with them. Each lockbox drop also feels like a spit in the face.

1 - Yes. Ferengi, Cardassin and now tholian lock box.

2 - Tholian. Better rewards, nothing like the awful and disgusting Cardassian or money-eater like the ferengi lockbox.

3 - Tholian. The worse reward is a cadre or a mark XII ship or ground weapon. The better rewards is a tholian ship. Lobi crystals helps too.

4 - D'kora ship is cool, but really hard to get. Mirror ship really become a good middle reward, everyone can take this with some money or check easily in the exchange, becoming a good thing. Mark XIII ultra-rare items really is a good and welcome surprise.

5 - Special Bridge Officers, from other faction (like ferengi to KDF or Orion to FED, as example), anything unique, like uniforms or some visual items to wear in my toon. Something unique and truly special to kdf can be really nice too.

6. Rate your feelings towards the following on a scale from 1 to 10, (1 being VERY NEGATIVE, 10 being VERY POSITIVE, and 5 Neutral.)

General:

-Holiday Giftbox : 1 Never find one.
-Cardassian Lock Box : 2 worse items, high price
-Ferengi Lock Box : 4 better items, high price
-Lobi Crystals : 2 really cool stuff to buy, hard to get lobi
-"Gold" Lock Box : 1 Is really impossible to get anything good here.
-Master Keys : 4 Price too high. If lower the price to something like 75 or 50 zen, become more fun to spend money and buy more lock boxes.

Rewards:

-Ships : 10 Is really wanted. More original, more wanted.
-Consoles : 7 Is nice to find, but something more original can be nice.
-"Toys" (Non-stat oriented playthings like party-poppers) 5 Middle or low reward...
-Unique Duty Officers/Bridge Officers : 7 if is bridg officer, 5 if is duty
-Costumes 10: If is to kdf, really worth the price. If is to FED, is neutral...
-Pets : 1 Really, taking non-combat pets in every box is really sad.
-Unique Consumables 1 : If you want candy and take vegetables...

7 - In the ferengi lockbox time, the Lobi Store have a good selection of items, with an impossible price to buy. Now in the Tholian lockbox time, the Lobi Store have a lot of low-price consumables, but the good items are in the high price yet. I really miss middle-price costumes, this really worh your lobi crystal, but is the price is too high to buy or are out of stock now.

8 - Costumes, something fun to use or unlock something unique, like an emote, a ship emote or can be used to roleplay or have fun with friends, without becoming a problem in the public maps.

9 - Something more vaulable to get, something more clear about your chances to get something. The current and past lockboxes are really a bad mystery about your chances to get each type of item. This is become a kind of gamble, a kind of scam if you think better. I really want a good, honest and clear lockbox system with clear chances to everyplayer know about the chances to get an item or other.

10 - No.
