Am i the only one that reads stats before spending dill or zen on something? I saw that they had lower dps then fleet and I decided against it even though they would look cooler then normal orange phasers...fact is they said in the agreement no refunds and they reserve the right to change whatever at any time. Sad but true...nothing you can do about it so just grind a bit more and get the fleet versions when they pop up in fleet store, This is what I'm doing...Well actually I didn't buy the weapons in the first place I figured it was a typo.
it sucks for you guys that spent the hard earned dill on them...I mean i feel ya but life isn't fair.
I'm looking forward to using Andorian fleet DHC's with the Romulan plasma consoles..lol

Some of us wanted the blue weapons to complete the look of the ship. I knew the fleet weapons were better but I wanted it to look good. This was before it was made known that there were going to be blue fleet weapons.

I'm very happy for you that you didn't buy them. Bravo. Congratulations. That doesn't help us, though.

I doubt they will do anything for the rest of you guys other then offer a different set to buy in fleet store. Live and learn I guess...Its happened to me as well, I thought the point defense console was going to be worth buying the ship, well it wasn't, I should have gotten the one with the quads on it.
One thing I can recommend is the collectors addition of STO, the perks of getting the game are worth it if you find it on sale cheap...I heard some of them even include a borg officer

There must be something inherent in internet communcations that activates the stupid gene in those lucky enough to have it. There's one thing that reality will always have that "chat" never will, immediate reprecussions for arrogant, antisocial behavior.

Lol, cryptic releasing items for purchase, people get busy purchasing said item for weeks then suddenly, "oops we made a mistake and need to nerf the stats" Seems some things will never change in the cryptic camp. A few more of these and people are going to start leaving over it since we never get compensation. I've already been struck several times and wasted a ton of currency whether it be dollars or dilithium or lobi. Had I bought these phasers it might have been the straw that broke the camels back.

And to add salt to the wound, "oh hey guess what guys we know you've been busy buying these dil store weaps but we're going to give you fleet versions"


Lol. The shadiness never ceases to amaze me. I can't wait to see what's next.

It's funny you say that. I was thinking about buying some zen/keys as I wanted to try at getting a Galor. Then I thought, "No, why should I give them money when they've just cost me so much dilithium?" Instead I went to to pub with some friends and spent that money on beer. I had a lot of fun and the bartender didn't tell me that he needed to dilute the beer after I drank it.

Sorry, Cryptic. (Well, I'm not sorry but it seemed the polite thing to say.)

These items were intended to be for fun and flavor purposes. While some of the posters have noted that Spiral Wave Disruptors are a similar case, those weapons are significantly more expensive and only a specific weapon type (Beam Array) is available. Making all weapon types at that level of power available on the Dilithium store would represent a significant change to our game's loot progression.

For those of you who are interested in more powerful Andorian Phasers, I will be adding Advanced Fleet Andorian Phasers to the fleet store. These are statistically identical to other Advanced Fleet Phasers and require an Andorian Escort to purchase. The only difference between these and standard Advanced Fleet Phasers is cosmetic.
I bought a full set of these. You know how much dilithium that is? You should spot us free fleet andorian phasers for this screw-up.

So does this mean we'll be getting Fleet Spiral Wave Disruptors? I spent a ton of dil on them, and I'm not complaining about that, but if you're adding in fleet variants of d-store weapons to placate the seething masses, then please be fair about it, and give us Galor owners (who have spent TONS of zen getting the ships in the first place) the same.
