hmm good idea. but begs the questions should this not be true for all cloak ships?

personally though i think a long term veteran reward would be a more ideal solution, like after a couple of years.
or to get complicated a veteran reward that unlocks the c-store item after 2 years.
if people have for their own reasons decided to buy 5 copies and spend all that money they still get the ship for a couple of years before anybody else.
and the people that referred friends will have gotten the ship for free, as the program was intended.
interesting suggestion.

Anyway thats just my opinion on how it looks, it will suffer the same fate as the TOS connie, especial in july when whe get a new tier of ships.
Ummm, there is no promise of a new tier of ship. New ships yes, but not a new tier, actually it has been mentioned there will not be a tier 6 in the forseeable future. hmmm what i do with that link.... i had that rascal here someplace....

Can we close this thread now, since the issue has been resolved and all your wish came true? Even staring at the title of this thread will give me a stroke.

Forgive my tangent. You are of course right, I had not read that far into the conversation at that time. Of course latter in the night when I had read that I felt like an ass for my knee jerk comment.

Still even in communism there is no such thing as equals among people, else the Soviet garbage man would have had as nice a dacha as nice as Artem Mikoyan. In this case, adding the Gal-X to the C-Store, you will wind up with a larger version on the current situation. Instead of just social adepts and those with enough cash to simply buy all the boxes and subs to get a Gal-X outright, you will have them and those who can afford to buy it from the C-Store entering their ranks and those who are in a more difficult economic position unable to justify the expense for a virtual ship with potential game changing capacity. In that regard you are on the money, this is not a communistic solution.

To be honest, Soviet communism sounds like a better deal than what Cryptic is offering.

At least Soviet Union didn't sell the sickles and hammers with ridiculous premium, only to introduce them in the local grocery store several months later, for mere fraction of the original costs.

I've said it before and I'll say it again; if you take the cloak and the lance off of the ship then yes put it into the C-Store, if you want everything on it then absolutely not.

Take the maneuverability and unlimited BO slots of BoP's then.

Make them sad little Fed Escort clones with cloak.

That is what you are asking for.

For a Klingon to complain about PvP is just sad.

PvP was made for klingons! Their ships are so superior than fed ships it's not even funny!

You really have no idea; Federation ships have more versatility and hitpoints than their Klingon counterparts. Those are offset by the versatility of the BoP and the tanking abilities of the Carrier.

If you're naive enough to think that the reason Klingons win more often at PvP is because of cloaking, then you really don't know what you're talking about as a good Fed premade will wipe out all Klingon pugs and most Klingon premades that they come across.

That was mostly because Commie store shelves were always empty.
