# 1 Very Frustrated
02-22-2013, 05:37 AM
Why do I need the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship to have a hangar of Jem'Hadar Attack Ships on my Jem'Hadar Dreadnaught???

I spent $150 to get that Dreadnought to find that the attack ship I wanted to use can not be done unless I own a ship that is no longer in the game.

I also find the logic faulty, to say you have to have the attack ship before having the hangar should then apply to all other hangar craft. I mean why do you not have to own the delta flyer or runabout before you can buy those hangars?

Again... Just frustrated ... Sto please Fix!

All of this information was readily available. It is your own fault if you chose to ignore it, but instead threw money at something you did not understand.

Why do you need it? Because that's the prerequisite of buying them.
The ship is not "no longer in the game"? Check the exchange.

I doubt they'll "fix" it, when it's not broken. From the dev blog announcing the lockbox:

Quote:
As another added bonus for owners of a Jem?Hadar Attack Ship, there will now be a Hangar item available for use exclusively for the Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier that will allow this ship to launch a wing of Jem?Hadar Attack Ships. Scaling quality levels of these items will be available for purchase from the Shipyard Store, Dilithium Store, or Fleet Store only if you have obtained the Jem?Hadar Attack Ship through a prior promotional event.
Also, paying $150 to get the ship. Should've just sold your keys to raise the EC, you'd have saved... a fair bit.

It was posted on the dev blog related to the Dominion Lock box even before the LB went live. And comparing a frigate/escort to an auxillary craft is not a very good arguement. It was done as a perk for those that have the Attack Ship.

Will they release the attack ship again?

...a fair bit? with 150 dollars you can buy 3 from the exchange actually...50-60 keys (little over 6000 zen) is about 70+ million EC...which is the price for one.

Most likely especially since they ran these new ships in the lock box.

They have been a chance 'drop' when opening retiring DOF packs from the Zen store on two occasions now. If i were to bet I would guess a new DOF pack hitting around season eight.

So i.e. when they were retiring the Gamma Quadrant DOF packs from the Zen store there was a chance to get the ship when you opened one of those packs during the promotional period. Note that these were the Zen store packs, not the mini packs from the lock boxes (although you could buy the Zen store packs off the exchange; they were going for around 4-6 million when this promotion was on-going).

Notes from the last times they did it (courtesy stowiki.org):

Gamma Quadrant Zen Store Pack: 'From June 7-21, 2012 they will add 10 Lobi Crystal and a chance to obtain a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship. They will be discontinued from C-Store after June 21, 2012. '

Reinforcements Zen Store Pack: 'From November 1 through November 15 this pack has an additional bonus item : either 10 Lobi Crystal or the Jem'Hadar Attack Ship. This duty officer pack has been removed from Zen Store and replaced with Fleet Support Duty Officer Pack on the November 21, 2012'

Hope that helps

PS if you didnt know pull some elite scorpion fighters for that dread they're better than the dil store jemmie fighters...that is until you can access T5 Starbae fighter pets...at least..that should help make up the lost dps from those attack ships

Possibly. The ship has never been available in any standard lockbox format. It was a winter's day prize last year, and after that it was used to promote Gamma Quadrant Officer pack sales.

I got my JH Dread for free... played fleet actions, sold drops, saved 95mil EC, bought dread for 70mil 2 days ago. Still sitting in the box too. Didn't happen overnight, but it was still rewarding to earn one without spending a dime.

Someone doesn't understand the concept of opportunity cost.
