But now i have stuff i can't use as i already have them unlocked on my account and are going to be sitting there collecting dust (bar the Photonic officer who is off to a friend as he hasn't got one and i have him, so see no point in letting it collect dust) because everyone is going to have them and the exchange will be full of them because others will probably be in the same situation.
the fact is they never stated that its a lottery chance type.

it clearly said in the winter package is one of following.

it did not say you have a very very small chance to win something that might be good. but to be honsest u will only win horta's and other crap that u dont want.

on the fact that the winter package info was so misleading they should refund our money.
if i had known that the odds where better to hit by lighting than win what u wanted.
i would have spent my c-points on duty off or a ship something that i could have used

bloody theft

I got my ship on my second box but I bought a few more of those winter packages and received a number of blue boxes that do nothing on use...

Unless I am missing something, the system is borked in some way.

Edit: I agree that hiding one very nice item amongst garbage that you have to pay for is cruel. I do not like this cash grab mentality.

Fair point MadDog, it doesn't state it is a lottery. I just assumed it would be run in that way from how i read it.

I was just reading the blog and one sentence caught my eye:

Quote:
Red Holiday Gifts have a chance to award you with a C-Store item or even a bonus item that is no longer available or canít be claimed any other way.
what on that list apart from the ship is no longer available on the C-Store?

the whole thing is a joke tbh.

i would have thought since xmas is coming it would be evryone gets a cool item free.

something that would make u want to spend c-points to upgrade it like the consoles from ships etc... . that way u can get a gift and have the option to buy impovements for it.

but what we got is flush ur money down the toilet in the hope it floods and gives u something back. the only problem is what we get back is crap,

if ur very very very lucky or have gotten carried away and spent so many c-points that when u think about it makes u sick.
u get a ship.

id rather of it been pay 3000 c-points or what ever and u Will get a ship
not a box that has a crap chance with all the c-points spent and still no luck,

Agreed, the description of the frostfall box implied a relatively fair chance to get that ship, not an chance of 3721 to one against it.

But since cryptic still owes me one year of content it's not that hard for me to resist spending even an single cent for c-points.

And this is how Cryptic kill a great game. I think this is just the start, and with paying costumers.
What will happen when f2p is here, will all nice items comes in a box, and you will have a chance to get it ?

I didn't like the changes, but I know if they come with more of those boxen crap, I will leave the game.
If I want to gamble I will goto a casino, I'm here to play a great game.

That's their own fault.
