I're repriced the C-store to show more accurately what i think the items should cost and a brief description of why. I've tried to standardize the pricing a bit more, but let me know what you think and how you would change it.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Peregrine Attack Fighter
(200 Atari Tokens)
Let's face it, these don't do you any good until you need it for a mission. Plus it should only be 400 points if it unlocks for both factions instead of just the one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire To'Duj Fighter
(200 Atari Tokens)

See Peregrine description

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Section 31
(120 Atari Tokens)
Considering how it's just a jacket, the shoes and pants look pretty much like the other sets.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Light Science Vessel Oberth Class
(600 Atari Tokens)
Not too far off, but a lower Tier ship should have lower Tier Pricing

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Bajoran Militia
(200 Atari Tokens)
Two uniforms with their own Ranking designs, not bad.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Value Bundle - The Original Series
(1400 Atari Tokens)
This one stays the same because let's face it, that's a good deal. Although it wouldn't hurt to get the TOS Connie in this bundle too.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: The Original Series Dress Uniform
(240 Atari Tokens)
I'd say 3 Uniform variations is fair, no?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: The Original Series Medical Uniform
(240 Atari Tokens)
See above.
Side note, they need to fix the body skin to match the face I.E. "infected Skin"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: The Original Series Command Tunic
(240 Atari Tokens)
Good as is

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Multi-Vector Advanced Escort
(1000 Atari Tokens)
It's cool, but let's not over do it

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Open Jacket
(240 Atari Tokens)
This is a fair price for open uniforms, but then need to open all versions for both Male and female. Kirk wasn't sexist, so Cryptic shouldn't be either. Plus even in TNG there were Men in Skirts, First episode, swear to god.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Melee Weapon Pack
(160 Atari Tokens)
Two weapons, none customizible? come on, WAY to expensive seeing how the mission they were made for GAVE you better weapons for free. WE shouldn't have to pay more then 80 points per weapon.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vulcan D'Kyr Science Vessel and Vulcan Tal'Kyr Support Craft
(1000 Atari Tokens)
It is a decent ship, but Vulcan Logic Dictates Fair prices.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Shuttlecraft - Delta Flyer
(400 Atari Tokens)
The only reason this is still at 400 is didn't it unlock something for the KDF as well? If not then it should be 200

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skill Point Boost - 1 Hour
(100 Atari Tokens)
I leveled pretty good with the free one so i'd say this is fair

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skill Point Boost - 8 Hours
(700 Atari Tokens)
OHH, Discount for buyiing in bulk

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: All Good Things
(120 Atari Tokens)
Don't let the color change fool you, i'ts really the same Jacket

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire - Guramba Siege Destroyer
(1200 Atari Tokens)
This ship is cool, but not $25 cool.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: The Motion Picture
(120 Atari Tokens)
Kickin' it old school for old school Prices

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Counselor Troi
(120 Atari Tokens)
Classy yet cost effective

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Value Bundle: Enterprise
(1200 Atari Tokens)
this seems fair, but if it also came with a too scale bridge i'd bump it to 1400 because it has the ship as well

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation NX Class Starship Replica
(400 Atari Tokens)
See Oberth description

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Enterprise (22nd Century)
(120 Atari Tokens)
This is just a flight suit. it should really include the mirror uniform pack as it's not that different. Do that and i'd bump it to an Easy 240 points

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Enterprise Mirror Uniforms - Circa 2160
(120 Atari Tokens)
see above, plus you'll look damned good in an evil goatee

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: T'Pol
(120 Atari Tokens)
It didn't really give you much for your money... until now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire - B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit
(1000 Atari Tokens)
Top tier gets you top price i'd say

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire - Varanus Fleet Support Vessel
(1000 Atari Tokens)
see above

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire - Marauder Patrol Cruiser
(1000 Atari Tokens)
See above the above but not directly above

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Empire - Kar'Fi Battle Carrier
(1000 Atari Tokens)
ohhh.... daddy want....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Costume Pack: Seven of Nine
(240 Atari Tokens)
I get it, she's hot.... VERY HOT.....

But again, it's only ONE costume and it's only for the females to use I.E. eye/hand piece.... although i got the calfs for it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Klingon Vor'cha Battle Cruiser Ship Costume: Tor'Kaht Class
(160 Atari Tokens)
I'd say this is pretty fair for a Ship costume

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advanced Research Vessel Retrofit: Nebula Class
(1,000 Atari Tokens)
that Tachyon grid would make a nice removable console

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sehlat Cub
(80 Atari Tokens)
Not worth it until i can make it attack something or poo in the admirals office

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tribble of Borg
(80 Atari Tokens)
At least my Photonic tribble doesn't have a modem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fluidic Space Tribble
(80 Atari Tokens)
Just don't ask what that Fluidic is

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Off-Duty Costume Pack: Mercenary
(180 Atari Tokens)
THERE'S EVEN A POCKET FOR SPACE SHARK REPELANT!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Federation Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit: Excelsior Class
(1000 Atari Tokens)
The official Ship of Stan Lee

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Off-Duty Costume Pack: 21st Century Formal Wear
(280 Atari Tokens)
Hey, remember when the C-store Was fairly priced for what it gave you?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Exploration Cruiser Retrofit
(800 Atari Tokens)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit
(800 Atari Tokens)

again, Not my species, but as long as it unlocks captains boffs doffs and for all factions, then i'm willing to raise the price here

Discounted since it doesn't unlock for the KDF

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I actually do not understand why you made that efford.... You dont really believe that this has even the slightest chance to persuade Cryptic to change the prices?

And I dont understand why diffrent ships of the same tier should have diffrent prices....

Let me propose a simplified pricing system: <insert item name here> $0.00

I think this would catch on.

I think you put a lot of effort into that.

I think you could have spent your time more wisely doing anything else.

Mostly because 2 or 3 days with our sleep (yay insomnia) leaves a person with nothing to do as evidenced by this list, which took 30-40 minutes while listening to a pod cast. And no i don't, but it was more of asking about what the other game players thought of certain pricing. As for the different ships of same tier, it's mostly due to the special functions like MVAM or the dreadnaught compared to the fed retrofits which only have a single special function. Also again partially do to the lack of sleep.

although to be honest, you never know, if enough people dislike things Cryptic does Change them.

That's funny because i love when people post on things putting them down when they thing they are complaining about is listed. Many (obviously not all) of these are based around prices set by the C-store and Standardized and are even reference albeit jokingly under said item. Take Bridge options for example. The klingon packs usually run about 2 for 80 points, the fed packs 3 for 120 there for a base price is easly assumed 40 for each. But once you get above that they tack on more to the price, Hence in the opening statement

there are more examples if you wantas well. But then again if you actually read it you might have noticed that before hand.

this was meant more as a IMHO type post with a slight bit of humor to it to get an open discussion on what people thought were fair prices for things based on use, function, and performance after a nerf hammer. If you don't like it just remember, it's only a forum post and it can't hurt you, no matter how bad i've purposely made it for you to suffer from MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

All that you have to do now is to buy Cryptic, then we might actually see these changes. :p
