# 11 Lobi Crystal prices too high?
04-12-2012, 04:14 AM
Greetings all, Xander here.

I jest spent 50 euros on Master Keys, plus what i already had that turned out to be 48 master keys. I really wanted the ship, as i have loosed each time on the other lock boxes and was hoping to win this time. Short story.... no ship, lol. But i will say i did get a nice conceal and some combat pets, so i didn't really have a sour taste in my mouth.

That was true till i got to the Lobi store on Drozana.

In spending my master keys, i noted that many of the prizes i got also came with lobi crystals, normally 1 or 2. I did get a box or 2 with 5 and 10 crystals in it i believe, i'm sure one said 10 i think, don't quote me, lol. But i did however have a streak of 1 lobi crystal boxes, like 10 in a row.

This didn't bother me till i got to the Lobi Store.

I believe that the Lobi store prices are way too high considering that you have to pay real world money and or grind dilithem to pay for keys to get Lobi crystals.

Prices examples as follows:
Ferengi Shuttle=800
Photonic MACO BOFF=300

Ferengi Ship SET
RF Missile Launcher=200
Concentrated Tachyon Mine Launcher=200
Rule 62 Multipurpose Combat Console=200

This is allot to ask for i believe. I was given 148 Lobi Crystals for the 50 euros i spent. SO now i'm out of real money, no Ferengi Ship, and i can't even get any of the things i'm interested in the Lobi Store like the BOFF or Ship Set. Now im back too having a bad tast in my mouth agine.

Mind you there are other items in the Lobi Store, like Combat pets and Cosmetics like Ear Rings and Costumes, but none of these are of any interest to me.

As a long time supporter of STO and the C-Store i'm offering this feed back. I believe the Prices are too high.

What happened to the popular idea you had about adding things to the GPL Store like the Cosmetics?
Why add a new currencies? Season 5 was about getting rid of some, but now we have more then ever.
Will we be able to trade in GPL for Lobi?
Will there be other ways to get Lobi?
Will you lower the Lobi Prices?

Any answers will be great on this. And thank you for your time.

You would've done better to sell the master keys directly on the exchange and wait until someone posts a D'kora for sale.

So it's basically better than the Galaxy-X in every way possible?

This was too logical to ever be implemented.

No phaser lance or uber tank. Don't forget those awesome gamebreaking features.

if the targets shield are down the missiles do quite a heafty bit of damage... more than enough for a tricolbalt to finish off said target.
