Fantastic suggestion!!
Just have to nod at this one...although....have you seen a slave Orion girl dancing after she drinks a "nerve tonic". You might be tempted to spend all of your money....check out Kronos "red light" disctrict

I am working on the Breen ship. So far logged on 2 days for the race. My KDF is the one going to get it. Since that will give him a different ship to play around with. And it looks more KDF style being a warship/aggressive type. And to me it don't fit the Fed style. Looking forward to trying it out in 20+ days. I got an idea what weapons I will put on it. Time will tell soon as I get it.

I'm doing the race on all my alts that are of the level to do it. It's not very hard to do, so I think it's worth it.

Anyone spending real $$ to buy this "free" ship has something wrong them anyways, even if they have boat loads of extra cash laying around or not, this ship is acquired for free within a couple weeks.

I personally have over 2000 lobi's in the bank, but why spend them on a free ship when i could buy a couple temporal vessels and sell them on the x-change?

However, people will do what they believe is fun to them, even if it means wasting resources on a free item lol.


I was going to acquire this new ship as well for my engineer, until I seen the stats and the low hull integrity i decided against it. As for my tactical officer, ill stick with my fleet tac escort refit and fleet advanced escort.

Enjoy your new "free" flying toilet paper dispenser

so some of us can't ensure we are online for all the required days as we have RL stuff to deal with such as kids and what-not.

For me I have been a lifer since beta and had a bunch of Cryptic points which I spent on trying to get the mobius and wells. So I had a bunch of lobi, nothing to spend them on, figured the breen ship was worth it, spent the lobi got the ship and was proven right.

Its an awesome cruiser.

Everyone's life and circumstances are different, so before you judge someone else, get up from your computer screen and take a good look around your own life and priorities.

Not everyone can spend every day in game.

This is your opinion. It makes you out to be holier-than-thou. I'm sorry, but what gives you the right to pass judgement on other people? What people do with their time and resources is their own business.

I agree. Buying the Breen ship doesn't impinge on the gameplay of other people so why do people feel they have the right to pass judgement?

Because it's not logical to buy something that's free.

I understand that statement at face value, but the world is not black and white.

Firstly, maybe some people don't have the time to get it. I'm away on holidays soon and I may not have access to a computer during the days the Winter Wonderland is open. Regardless of being free I may not have access to it. If I decided to buy it would I be acting contrary to logic? As for other people, maybe they're away too, or having family members stay with them or they're going to have elective surgery or they're going overseas for business or any other myriad of reasons. Are they acting contrary to logic also?

Secondly, you're talking about people. People are not Vulcan. We make decisions based on wants, desires and passions in addition to rational thought. If someone REALLY wants one now then surely, as a free thinking person, they have the right to do so?

I just think that people are needlessly being picked on because they are exercising the right to choose what they want. A choice this game freely gives them. Pick on them if they break the rules, not if they abide by them.

I did some math (if I'm mistaken forgive me and correct me), but 23 days (assuming it ends Dec 31) of "Winter Wonderland" events at 40 Q pictures per day is only 920 pictures...still 80 short of getting the Breen ship. If this is the case its not much of a prize i/m/h/o if you have to spend rl money to open 20 more lock boxes as well.

Edit: Oops! It runs until Jan. 14th.

Nothing to see here...carry on.
