I have to say, Cryptic. This is a new low for you.

C-store is one thing, I understand the need for extra revenue. I've even purchased a lot of stuff from the cstore. ships, costumes, etc. But this new RIG just makes me mad. Why? Because everything on there is attainable through other means, except the Jem'hadar ship.


Why is that so bad? Think about it. Many of us would be perfectly willing to pay 800-1600 CP's for a flyable Jem'hadar Attack Ship. Most of us have already purchased from the C-store.


so why put it in a random item game? Seriously... with all the other options you have available....



Please, I'm begging you. Stop listening to Perfect World's "advice" on how to run an MMO. You, and they, are ruining this game.

What I'm wondering is if we have to be of the correct rank to get the ship or if some of my lower level characters have a chance.

logically I would think that given the rank requirements it wouldn't make sense for it to be possible for a player to unlock the ship unless they were the appropriate rank.....at the very least thats how how I would code it if I was the one designing the system

You can get the ship box at any level and just keep it until you have reached the appropriate rank.

If the odds are 1/100, the expected cost of the ship is 10,000 points. And it is quite likely the odds are worse than that.

26 chances. Assume 100,000 people get 26 chances at 1/100 odds.

Chance of NOT getting a ship is (99/100)^26 = 77%, or 23% chance of getting one.

Since I doubt they want 23,000 people flying one, we can safely assume the odds are worse than 1/100.
