Cryptic couldn't give "insert most offensive term you can think of here" they just want your money and by the looks of it the majority will happily part with their cash for this 'game'.

Depressing isn't it?

I'm enjoying the latest rationalization though: That it's OK to buy these things providing you're only after the Lobi.

Which is basically saying $200 for a ship is good value.

# 43 Fleet duty officer pack promo
03-16-2013, 11:56 PM
Why does Perfect world run these mid week promos?
Can't speak for the rest of the world but most Brits get paid on the last day of the month and this promo finishes on the 28th.. Running a promo mid month when money start to get a little tight is a little silly.

It's the same reason you don't see shops selling Christmas products in the summer. The return wouldn't be as profitable.


Don't you think everyone would like to have a shot at getting that elusive bug ship? Not to mention that its the end of the financial year and company's hand out pay bonuses at the end of this month and next month.

Obviously it's because they don't want you to spend too much on their game instead of spending it on whatever else you spent it on in real life. Quite considerate of them lol

Every Fleet Support Duty Officer Pack you open will also include either 10 Lobi Crystals or a Jem'Hadar Attack Ship

This statement very clearly indicates that every single pack will contain either one or the other. If it doesn't contain a JHAS it should contain 10 lobi. There is literally no room for misinterpretation here and quite frankly I'm amazed you need this explained to you.

If someone has opened a pack that contains neither of these items it is a bug and needs to be addressed.
Well gee Mr. Wizard, thanks for clarifying that for all of us little people who misinterpreted the *note...

[UPDATE] Hey folks, looks like I made a mistake - Fleet Support Duty Officer Packs are not being discontinued after this promotion. Really sorry about any confusion!
I look forward to pewbranflakes coming back after his vacation or whatever he is doing. o.o

U.S. tends to get paid bi-weeky or on the 1st and 15th. They might be scheduling around that.
