i think cryptic missed a missed a massive opportunity here and should of placed this after the start of LoR by a week, perhaps 2 in order for the RR toons to benefit from this. you also could of done FE rerun, CE event and a zen promotion as well, make things interesting. then put out another lockbox at the start of LoR as the dominion lock box is retired to the event a week or 2 later.

Hopefully this will cause the Temporal ships to come down in price on the exchange.

Dammit Cryptic, I'm a Starfleet officer not a locksmith!

How does it change anything? Buy the keys now, use them later with your Romulan char.

Keys are already going to be flooding the market come 21st May from the legacy packs so surely a sale on other more usable/practical stuff such as character slots, respec tokens or other stuff people will want to use would have been better.

bad timing...

#1 more players would use this if it was AFTER the LoR release

#2 this means the TalShiar LockBox will be released SOON... maybe TOO SOON?

Come on, at least let the returning players get some romulan level 50 chars before you drop the next LockBox stuff on our heads. 1 Month AFTER LoR releases would be ok.

Business tip of the day:

If you want people to feel like spending Zen, try fixing your totally broken pre-patching. Or at least have a staff member publicly acknowledge there is a problem in the first 24 hours that you've had that broken pre-patch up.

So I'm a little sleepy and willpower was low. Spent my last 2 month's stipend on a set of 10 keys... 66 lobi, 6 mining rights and a pile of junk. If I'm lucky I'll make 30k Dil from the mining rights and 1.75M EC on exchange for the junk.

Instead...
  • I could have sold 10 keys for 13-14M EC.
  • Put the 956 Zen up for sale and made ~124,000 Dil.

Damn you sleepiness and Cryptic! Again (4th time) I will swear to never open any more lock boxes! Kids, learn from my example... when gambling, only the House always wins.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!
