NERDRAGE. j/k

Well, here's hoping they at least look like clear derivatives of the T'liss. 'cause I'd take joy in that, too. Otherwise I'll fly D'Deridex like all the TNG Johnny-come-latelys.

In normal economics, decent products get decent revenue. You deliver something good, you get good money in return.
Preorders of the Samsung Galaxy S4 are already sold out. I've got several video game preorders currently outstanding. The entire Kickstarter system is essentially preorders funding everything from hardware to software to services. Economics moves on; there was a time when people were complaining that currency was a ripoff, that in "normal economics", you trade chickens, and get good bread in return.

"moneygrab" has been redefined as "anything I don't want to buy" in these forums lately. It's unfortunate when useful terms are blurred like that.

It'd be interesting to see if this actually happens. It might even confirm a few suspicions.
New OP hotness, same as the old OP hotness, with just a tad of extra OP to put ya over the edge.

To me the bundle isn't as appealing since I've farmed Dil for so long it's crazy. I'll just buy the 4 ships I want instead of the 4 I want an the 4 I don't.

That being said I would think a couple things would make it more enticing:

- 4 Fleet Support Modules instead of Lockbox Keys.
- Service Bundle for one Romulan Character on the account. I don't know if this is possible but having the option to get this along with a set of Bank/Account Bank/Inventory slots (or some combo of those) and/or BOFF/DOFF slots (or again some combo) would make this infinitely more appealing.

As it stands I'll just wait for a ship sale...

On another subject. TOS Warbird. I get that it's meant to be stupid old but still I'd rather have seen maybe a Romulan Science Vessel or scout vessel from TNG instead. The TOS Warbird would have been a great way to encourage people to grab the TOS bundle even for their Romulan if Feds got a Connie, Roms the Warbird and it should also be updated with a KDF option like a D7 or something.

Though based on what I've played so far I'm assuming the TOS Romulan uniforms unlock as part of the Devidian Series rewards system.

The card you entered cannot be used for this payment. Please enter a different credit or debit card number.


apparently I can't use prepaid credit cards. And of course PWE support site is still giving me redirect loops. and the email I sent last week to support still hasnt been recieved. its like PWE is allergic to helping out

I wouldn't take the word exclusive very seriously from Cryptic. Many items from the box versions of the game were exclusive and ended up in the C-Store some time later. The Galaxy X was an exclusive reward for their recruitment program but that ended up in the C-Store within weeks of being released to the recruiters.

If I recall, someone from Cryptic clarified that exclusive means at the time of the offer and thus does not mean it will remain exclusive.

Aside from that, the Romulans look nice but with all the money grabs that has been done with this game as of late, it just isn't worth it.

The only items that are "exclusive" in the Legacy Pack are the titles and the mini-DOFF pack (specifically the unique Reman DOFFs that are in it) -- the rest of the items are planned to be sold in the C-Store. As we've never sold titles, and we don't sell mini-DOFF packs in the C-Store, you should expect not to see these elsewhere

You should be able to use a prepaid card. A couple things to note, though:

- If the card has only $125 on it, you'll get dinged the $1 authorization charge that will bring your balance below $125 and won't be able to use it, so it's good to make sure you have more than enough on the card.
- Also, it's advised you call the number on the card and attach it to a physical address. That way PayPal will have some data to compare the card against when you checkout.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
