Q: bkzland: Will there be an option to buy the Guramba for an ingame currency, like the Nebula was available for Marks of Exploration?
A: As Stormshade has mentioned, we’ve been working on getting this added to the referral program as a Klingon alternative to the Galaxy-X. However, after listening to your feedback, and talking to the team, we’ve decided to shoot for making the Guramba available in-game via emblem purchase instead. Keep an eye on the threads in the C-Store and Promotions forum for more updates on this.
I cannot seem them giving *refunds*. I can, however, see them giving you C-store credit for your purchase if you give them enough emblems. That way, they don't lose the cash, and you get to spend your Cryptic Points on another purchase of your choice.
Cryptic could say that there will be no refund, and paying for the ship could be considered paying for earlier access then those who get it by emblems. Like the Head-Start access for STO. Not that I agree with that line of reasoning, I think people should get -some- of their Cryptic Points back. But not all. At the moment those of you who have the Guramba, you paid for it, and you're benefiting from it and enjoying it(I hope). You are currently getting what you paid for. Others getting it in other ways doesn't mean you aren't getting what you paid for.
Oh, look: The Klingons get another ship that ACTUALY DOES DAMAGE.
Meanwhile, us feds are stuck with... what, exactly: A Defiant with cloak, an Galaxy with saucer seperation, and a Voyager with ablative hull armor, which SHOULD be on the Prometheus according to Canon...
Anyway, all of those abilities are not really useful in PvP
And what else do we have: a glorified Galaxy class with some sort of wierd phaser, and the Nebula.
Seriously... the NEBULA???
Is it just me, or is the Klingon faction the only faction that seems to get the ships that work for Tac officers.
Honestly, that has to stop. I say: Give Fed Tac officers a ship they can actually USE for once, even if it's just a Prometheus with blue phaser cannons instead of orange. Just SOMETHING we can use!
