Exploitation of Skinner-Box techniques and pseudo-gambling lockboxes for real cash is all sorts of shady. No clue how Cryptic gets away with this in the US's strict anti-gambling laws (outside of Nevada) but w/e. Oh, and the game is open to anyone 13 years of age or older. So not only promotion of blatant gambling but also doing so to MINORS!?
That's because it doesn't qualify as gambling. It's not any different from selling packs of baseball or ccg cards.
Just a few question for a former subsciber/returning LTS. I have been reading the posts in Star fleet academy and am still confused since duty officers were brought out after the last time I played. I already bought the Doff promo pack and I think I collected.
1. How many duty officers does one get automaticly?
2. Do I have to buy more Doff slots to open up a duty officer promo pack?
3. Is the promo pack a bunch of Doffs or is it just a chance to recruit more while doing missions?
3. If I won the new ship do i get it when I open the duty officer promo pack?
