That's exactly what STO: F2P is all about now. One of the first f2p blogs talked about making stuff rare and brag worthy. The result is items like this "best escort in game". Throw as much money as you have at the store and you'll get bragging rights.

The same can be said of anything tangible in life though. Throw more money at a car dealership than the other guy and you get bragging rights.

Throw more money at the guitar shop than the other guy and you get bragging rights (I'll just use my Fender Stratocaster bragging rights here since it's relevant )

Throw more money at the real estate agent than your mates and you get bragging rights.

Throw more money at the C_Store, and you get... what... pixels? You daft bugger. lol

Actually there's a simple reason I won't bother. It has no Lt Commander science station and I don't want to give up Gravity Well. That doesn't change the fact that it's the best escort in the game. If I were using Defiant or Fleet Escort I'd definitely want it.

Q: Why does this ship work differently from others in the game?
A: We are experimenting with releasing starships that normally could not be put into the game or the C-Store because it would not be IP appropriate to have them widely available. Rather than simply not have them in the game, we are trying out this alternate way to make something special available to the player base.
thats the thing thats giving me bad juju vibs

Ye-ap... Gambling for goodies is a PWE staple. Get used to it. If you do not like it, then stop gambling for the items. Also, nothing is sacred when it comes to their casino (as it were) so anything may at some point be gambled off. (Such as STF gear as an example...)

I really like the looks and everything but still this ship should not be something to gamble on and should something earnable. sorry if my post seemed a little "trollish" or "rage".

When they find out that adding C-Store lotteries gives them more money than releasing content...?

And you have to admit that F2P was set up for this to happen much more frequently and throughout the whole game where before it was not.

Oh well, time for me to go gamble with pixels without spending real $$$. I don't like the greed but I can't say having goodies isn't fun.
