So...

Cryptic, I purchased Chang's Bird of Prey and I'm having a blast (literally) with it. I popped a cloaked gal X in PVP with HY3. It was great!

But I must say I take issue with you selling individual special torpedoes for 50 CP each! I mean, when I'm playing with my Nebula, I need to purchase at least 10-20 homing torps if I want to engage the new Chang-o-Preys.

I still think its safe to assume 800-1500(this is an approximate high end number and actually expect it to me more like 1000) each with maybe an option that you can spend 1500-2500 and get both of them, assuming they do a ship pack like that.

that's $10.00 to $18.75 and $18.75 to $31.25 respectively.


...for those of us that arent falling for the 'real money' converted to 'game points' in order to rob players without them 'feeling' robbed ploy that is the 'IN' trend in the gaming industry today......

"Iconic ship pack! Pay $30,00 to fly these Iconic ships that every Star Trek fan loves!! This is a Star Trek subscription-based MMO but.. you know.. we would never give you everything truly star-trek because we'd like to charge you extra for that!!"

I'll admit, it had me at first. hence my previous post. But i did figure it out shortly after

BTW, I wasn't any of the three.

I look at it this way:
The TOS Connie is 800 points. Its the lower end of the scale and the least they would charge for a new ship.
I am figuring 2500 is too much per ship, unless they are trying to limit the numbers of them out there so thats where the 1000-1500 per ship comes in. I think 1500 per ship is extreme, especially if I can only use it at end game levels, something I really don't play at being an alt-aholic. That is why I am hoping it will be a cheaper end of those options, but to be honest, it will be what the C-store team says it 'should' be, which will be hopefully in the neighborhood of what the market can bear and not more, but who decides what the market can bear

I also have to ask is that is a currency converted total because 1000CP is about $12.50 US

I have to admit. If I were running marketing, I'd charge that and possibly more. Judging by the amount of people who bought gal-x's (myself included ) and how much Star Trek fans (myself included) love the iconic ships, there's going to be a good amount of revenue to be had.

Bad form? I would say so. Am I a latinum crazed Ferengi who cares nothing about the hearts and minds of his customers and only wants more profit? Most likely. Are there still going to be people who buy it so I'll have a nice bonus at the end of the year? Yes.
