Need I say more?
The red box or so called "winter package" at the C store is rigged and not even random. All it gives is another "blue box" full of useless junk. This is a scam at an extreme level. Please take this off the store and stop enriching yourselves with this ponzi scheme. This is an unfair practice and please do put a diclaimer regarding the odds of getting anything but a "blue box" . Not even talking your chances of getting a Jem Hadar just talking about anything but useless junk. Should this be reported to Better Business Bureau as a scheme? Leave it up to each one of us to determine just expressing my own concerns.
There are many Threat here of the Crapboxes, there is a chance to getting other things like Photon BO or the Jem hadar (XDDDD was a good joke) but i dont know what they take to make it random... i read of a Player how spend over 500 $ i think he is now over 700$ and dont get a Jem.
I posted in all of these Threats and hey Cryptic take a Idea from me .... but they convert it to Crap too ...
I often say " Make a Trader to give all this crap back to get the half or 1/4 of the C Points back" They make a Trader ... but we dont gain C Points ... -.- we get crapy goldpressed Latinium for nonepermanent Holoemiters ... wohoo
I have spend 180 € = 232,20 US Dollar and dont get a Jem. Funny to read that the most of Players how getting a Jem need around 2 - 8 boxes to get one or get a second one.
180€ = all ships and some Costumes of the store , permanent , accountwide ... damn im dumb
But hey ! We sponsored Cryptic for 1 or 2 Years with one Event!
Store bought gift boxes should have ZERO chance of giving you a blue gift-box.
They should be "guaranteed" to give at a minimum a C-Store item that is equal in value to the C-Points spent.
Which is by the way how most Microtransaction grab-bag's work.
I thank all of you who threw all of your money at this waste. At least I can happily say that Star Trek Online is not going anywhere, despite the release of TOR, as they probably now have the money to run it till the turn of the century.
