Do you have even the first clue how hopelessly entitled this sounds?

"I want the cool present that can be earned for free by playing the game, but I don't wanna actually have to PLAY the game to get it!"

As somebody else mentioned earlier in this thread, if you don't have Money or Time in abundance, you are not an MMO's target audience.

I think it's pretty obvious that this Winter Event is an effort to get people online and playing, instead of Cryptic's usual apparent tactic of getting people online and shopping. I think it's a refreshing change of pace, and I hope this little experiment works out for them so that we can see more similarly-motivated events in the future.

Wow, what can I say. Will be so getting that breen ship!!

Question though: I have the winter boots on one of my main toons, will this be upgraded to not have a timer on it?

Borticus said somewhere that they will be retrofit to be Infinite Frosty Boots.

Did you know that I'm on every day, have 4 level 50 toons, 5 more at various levels plus I have acquired multiple copies of all lockbox ships from farming dilithium and EC? No, of course not. You assume you know me well enough to think I have a sense of entitlement from one of my posts and feel it necessary to cast judgement. You don't know me and I can assure you you never will.

PWE doesn't need to encourage me to spend time in game as I already do. Me wanting a ship to be tradeable due to spending time with the family during the holidays (hardly abnormal behaviour) is a rational and reasonable request.

I would be way more interested if it was a Romulan ship. Oh well.

Very nice.

I wonder if the Breen Ship has a unique bridge?

We saw a Jem'Hadar bridge in some episodes of DS9 as well as Cardassian bridges. There were also Ferengi bridges in TNG and a Time Ship bridge in Voyager.

As far as I remember there was nothing about a Breen bridge in the TV shows. That would give some "freedom in designing" to the Breen bridge ^^

Somewhere in this thread it was intimated that there isn't a unique bridge. Considering the ship is free I can understand that.

Every time we add another fix-up to the game, it has a small effect on overall performance and stability, so we try only to do it when totally necessary.

If it is a big problem for people, could a trade-in vendor be added? I can't imagine though that the bound ones are numerous though in people's inventories though, and most likely those would be used first.

If it weren't for the impulse streaks on that ship, I would have guessed it flew the other way.
