Hey, can we get a DevBlog that details when we're going to get our Star Trek game back? Lockbox Cashgrab Online isn't that interesting, and not what I signed up (and paid) for.

I would keep playing if the Cardassian and now Ferengi ship were purchased through normal means. Hell, I'd be saving up my Dilithium to purchase the C-Points to get them. However, between the constant, unending stream of cash grab boxes and the lack of anything to do at max level, I've decided to quit STO. I stuck with this game far longer than I would have if it hadn't been a Star Trek game, but I feel like Cryptic doesn't give a s**t about us at all.

I wanted to make a rage post, but I'm tired. What is going on really? This year you only launched a ship ( the odisey and the Botasqu) for each faction, but 3 ships that can be used by any faction, can cost us about 10 times more, and are somehow unbalanced. Really is this the way we are going from now? If yes,

Not gonna try for it, but would make for a great fleet / party ship thanks to the dabo table and access to exchange, mail, etc.

Like I said in my other post...Enjoy the pending phone call from my states Attorney General. Have fun explaining how your product allows minors access to a form of online gambling.

It is really sad that Cryptic can't fathom a way to introduce ships like this in any way other than lockbox stupidity.

CBS won't release ths ships for outright inclusion, so the C-Store is out, as is any other means of actually purchasing the ship outright.

Here's an idea! Have a member's lottery held once per day for the length of the promotion time. Each day, one paid subscription memeber would be chosen. That name is then removed from the contest. Make the ship a "reobtainable, untradeable, single character at-a-time" item.

Well, I guess the devs thought that their paid subscription members would feel that it would be unfair to the rest of the players.

And btw, I have no subscription and refuse to purchase one, precisely because of such blatant Ferengi management...

LOL, Never thought of it that way! Uh Oh Cryptic...

On another note, I enjoyed watching the Cardy cruisers get blown up in PVP, I am even more excited to watch these do the same. Nothing a well put team can't take care of. I for one am not going to spend a single dollar on those keys.

FYI, it is only gambling(in the legal definition) if you have a way to convert your winnings back into RL currency. Like in a casino, how you turn in the chips for cash, or with online gambling sites how they transfer the money to your account. STO does not offer players any way to transfer their winnings back into RL currency.

if your going to keep introducing more and more op ships and consoles, could you at least buff all the original ships a bit? you know raise the baseline? we would complain less
