I love how they are giving something away FOR FREE and we still find people to complain.

725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

if it's that cheaply available it can't (or shouldn't) be lockbox powerful, not even fleet ship powerful, at best C-Store powerful.
i assume it is character bound and comes with a special console of some kind?

An interesting method for getting the Breen ship. Yet I would have rather had a free federation or KDF prototype ship (like the original free odessey). Save the non faction ships for the lock box cash grinder.

But still looks like fun!

Isn't it that what it's about during such an event?

I have nothing against working for something, but seriously 10 days would have been more than enough.
And by the way. The Lobi trade in amount is ridiculously low when you consider that you are actually paying real money for Lobi.
Since when does a 2-minute race every day qualify as a "grind"?

I like this setup a LOT better than last year's winter event. Great work, Cryptic! Keep it up!

I say Bravo Cryptic! You're not making us jump through hoops, you're not making us pay though the nose, you're not going to leave us with a bitter taste after last year. Well done I say!

Indeed. I bet some would complain about a free ship that required no effort to obtain that was able to fire your fave flavor of ice cream out of the screen and into real life.

Yes, can you please say which of these items are character bound, and which can be traded.

In the spirit of the season, it would be nice if we could give Q pictures to someone else to help them complete their ship, since it seems to be impossible to get more than one without Lobi. Or, in the coruption of the spirit of the season, let us use alts to collect pictures and give them to one character. Unless the old race is now not a daily event?

Also, is the ship and snowball weapons bound on pickup, so can we trade them to another character if we don't want them?

And finally, any pictures of the new outfits and scarfs?
