With that reasoning, why not just put the item on the C-store and pay direct Zen for it, rather than having to obtain Zen, then buy Lobi Crystals and then buy the item.

One thing I would like to see is the the ability to trade lockboxes for Dilithium Ore. One Dilithium Ore would be fine, as common as lockboxes are... That way, everything is actually worth something.
I am of the opinion that Cryptic cannot because PWE will not...

Ignore joxer... he was posting some BS about how cryptic was losing money because people could e-mail, trade, share, and sell doffs in-game freely.

sirsitsalot, because they are directly promoting and pushing the entire lockbox system. It takes it a step beyond the paid store.

The reason you cannot get direct lobi is because they WANT you to use the lockboxes. Same reason Las Vegas casinos want you to pull the lever arm on the slot machine. Even if there's a guaranteed payout they want to get you hooked. It's all marketting and ploys. That is why you won't see paid lobi crystals anytime soon.

Well opening boxes in mass will give you an average of 20 Zen per lobi crystal. I guess it's cryptic's way of managing sticker shock for such a niche game.
