Bah what a fail of a promotion.

As Holiday special and as shallow as a Holiday present at a Vegas casino.

I will be passing

People should also remember that you can get these gift boxes for free from Q, as well as trade dillithium for C-points and buy them from the C-store without spending any real money.

Whether you're gambling with your time or your money, it's still gambling, and ultimately one of the worst ways I can think of to distribute a powerful endgame ship.

Now that I wont disagree with. Rare novelty items are one thing, but there should be a clear cut way to get any end game item.

I am leaving the game anyway

and just for those of you hoping to buy this ship from C-STORE

one golden rule about ftp game

THEY WILL NEVER EVER SELL THE BIG REWARD FROM A GAMBLE BOX SEPERATELY

never

PS:I did not buy 14000 CP, I bought them with 4.5m dilithium, which I got while selling CP at 1:500 a few days ago

Marketing 101:

Make a ship only availble in the near future via 100 CP chance "roll." Make the odds so extreme that some poor soul spends his paycheck "rolling" for it; doesn't get it, and we line out pockets with green.

Merry Christmas you "paying beta testers"

Wow... it's that hard to get a Jem'Hadar attack ship?

Well, I wouldn't mind spending my 400 cpoint stipend on a few red holiday packs, but anything beyond that? Most likely not!

I couldn't agree more. I've been one of the few not complaining about every single change, but I firmly believe these holiday events should exist for the fun of it, as a way of getting people to log into the game, chat with each other and maybe getting some fun freebies.

Other MMO's have some great holiday events, and I was looking forward to this one a lot.. but they've turned this into a very cynical and frustrating event that exists for nothing more than selling consumables. You even have to queue up just to get into the race! Where they trying to include all the bad things about Christmas, instead of the good things?

Very disappointed.

I guess the good thing for me is that it turns out that 4 out of my 7 toons got hit with the conversion tax so I've got 20 chances to get something nice out of the Red gift boxes for free

If for some strange reason I land the Gem'Hadar raider twice on the same toon would I be able to sell it via the exchange?

My price will be dunt dunt dunt (extends pinky) 1000000000 Credits
