Okay. I'm going to be away from a computer several key days, to where going the free route might be tricky.

But here's what would sell me on the Breen ship.

- Benefits from the Jem'Hadar set bonus like the bug and the Galor do.

- Polaron quad cannons, usable on other ships.

I can't overestimate the importance for me on any new ship of having things I can use on other ships. Even better stats aren't enough to sway me because I have ships I like... but having something I can use on an existing ship is the bait that will get me to bite the hook.

And finally, being tradeable. Because I'd like to save one for when I can get a Breen XO promoted to Captain.

.

Why on earth the Jem'Hadar Set when there is a Breen Set too?


And please, oh please dont make it tradeable.

I understand the need for trading when it comes to "Luck" Items, but the Breen Ship is pure work over time.
There would be thousand and thousands of them in the exchange if it would be tradeable because there are a lot of people with a lot of 2nd, 3rd... chars out there.

Accountbound yes, but tradeable hell no.

what hook are you talking about? it is for free...25 days doing a less than 5 minute daily isn't something i consider an effort at all.

AND if you miss more than 10 days during the event you are able to buy the remaining resource with lobi crystals...

myself i have some lobis still dorment on a few toons, so i won't even need to do all 25 days.

i can understand that someone who planed already a 14 day skiing trip at a cabin with no WiFi will miss out on the ship, but let's be honest: "C?est la vie!"
And even then you got the Lobi option.

PS: would a unique bridge convince you?

No point in even going there seeing as there's No unique bridge! But hey... It's a FREE ship!

Isn't the Jem bonus Victory for Life bugged? Like for a year now or whatever.


And I agree with the breen ship set over Jem bit. If it's not worth using on a breen ship then it's worthless and you might as well drop it. I have put mine to "good" use however, so I'll simply switch that setup to this breen ship and call it a day, although I feel all ship set bonuses should have a 7.6% treatment with certain weapons to promote going with canon and leave the torp boost to KHG.

I wouldn't say that the Breen set is worthless. I use it on my Galor with the Breen rapid fire transphasic Torpedo and the Breen Transphasic Cluster Torpedo to quite deadly effect. I have noticed that the Cluster Torpedo crits quite often with this set.

I run the Breen set on my TOS-era Class-F shuttle - looks like a comet at full impulse with those Breen engines

My only question is why anyone needs to "sell" this ship to people.

Sure, it would be nice if it got some bonus from the J'em Set. Sure it would be nice if it had some awesome weapon like quad cannons or something.

BUT ... why do they need to "sell" anyone on something they are giving away for free ?

Sure, it could be a better ship, but I don't expect them to have to "sell" me on it. They are GIVING it to me.

Now personally I think it's an ugly piece of space junk, and will never fly it, except maybe once to test it out and say "OOOO" and "AAAA". But past that, I don't see myself ever flying it.

But it is a good ship. With decent stats, and Boff layout.

So, I guess in conclusion, I ask if someone walks up to you and says "Here, this is a free thing", is your immediate response "Why would I want your free thing? Maybe you'd better sell me on why I should want this thing you are GIVING to me for FREE. You know, really sell it, make me understand why I want it."

... Because it's Free !

Finally a proper use for those Latinum Holo-Emitters

The Frozen set is an Anti-Breen set, it's designed to fight against Breen. So bad synergy.

The Jem set however gives bonus to Dominion ships, that the Chel Grett once was, just like the Galor.
