Nothing for Champs, I see...

Oh well, I wasn't planning on dropping $200 on Neverwinter anyway. If I had that to burn I'd buy a Lifetime for STO.

The "we don't want to communicate our plans because they might change" attitude. Tell us the plans and tell us when the plans change and why.

It isn't the perks, it is the lack of communicated vision about the game that is preventing my investment.
Cryptic has become way to tight lipped.

Also, what is a kdf player going to do with an Andorran ship?
And what if the countdown is about announcing the Romulan faction. As Kirk would say, "What does a Romulan need with an Andorian ship?"


Again if he only waited 12 more days for this announcement and it would have been an epic April Fool's joke. But since he's serious -- SMH

Well said! Even if Cryptic gave you everything in the C-Store in STO for free. Neverwinter isn't even worth playing but at least the incentive would be worth the cost.

I noticed that too. I'm really starting to feel bad for the few players left in that game. Did you see the Ask Cryptic they had over there? It was so bleak. All they have left to look forward to all year is a handful of story missions and some cosmetic auras. Everything else was "Are there any plans for <insert feature here>?" followed by "Nope." Feels bad man.

Anyway more on topic, seems like a cool pack. It's more of a "PWE" bundle than a NW pack. I've been taking an interest in marketing lately so I'd love to see how effective this sort of cross promotion really is.

It would have been better if the Light Andorian Escort would have used the original Kumari skin with the option to use that skin on the T5 versions. Would deffinately sweetened the deal for a lot of people. Relay that to the Dev team please.

The responses in this thread are cringe-worthy. I'm embarrassed for many of you.

Normal people, when they see something for sale they don't want, walk past and the matter is out of their head within seconds.

People in this thread, however, have to pause, strut around, and make a huge spectacle about why they don't want to buy the item. Seriously, I'm embarrassed just reading the responses.

Only NW pack I'd ever have even contemplated was the Guardian pack. Spending roughly ?196 on a free game with unknown costs and market attached just to get a Lieutenant Fed ship is just going too far. From what I saw the NW market is overpriced anyhow as it is selling items which should be account bound, to single toons at account level prices.

The other stuff to me is just junk as I dont play those games anyhow. So thanks but no thanks.

I'm confused. The wing cannons level with you, but can only be mounted on the light escort. not even the full sized versions.

This allows them to be a bit better at level 1 than they would be at level 10 if they didn't scale. Theoretically, you could also use the ship a bit longer (past Lt.), if you'd like, and the cannons would scale with you.
