I have no problem with this. if you own a T5 you can pay a little bit more and some grind and get an upgrade, which is optional.

or if you have not bought a t5 or one does not exist then you pay the full amount and grind, which is fair considering the number of c-store ships bought at full price.

plus you can use the exchange if you wish.

not what i was expecting but i think its a good compromise and i like it.

So paying essentially full price for a ship AND grinding for months is a "good compromise"? Watch out Branflakes. I think Revo wants your job.

But what about people who bought low tier refits, and still need to pay 2000 zen for their retrofits ?

I'm not in a fleet so I'm not clear how building starbases work. Won't it be a couple of months before anybody has a starbase built enough to get the new fleet ships? The only one (so far) that looks interesting to me is the Defiant.
I've been grinding for a month to get the Dil for the Armitage (got another week to go). I don't think I would mind helping build a starbase while I grinded the dil to get the module(s) I need.

But, given the posts I read, I can understand the rage in this thread. I was under the impression that the fleet ships would be at least as good as the C-Store ships, but there would be another mechanism to get them. IE you could have a cool VA ship without spending money. I also have very low expectations of PWE. So, I'm a little disappointed, but not surprised.

yes. If you want the best defiant in the game as an example but have not bought a c-store defiant then i would expect that player to have to pay to get it just like someone who bought it outright in the store. they are not going to hand it out for free.

considering its better than the c-store version i would expect them to have to 'pay' more. now that extra cost is in grind over cash.

if a player has bought the c-store ships than you pay a little bit extra by only needing one module and you are therefore paying for an upgrade.


if a player does want to grind or pay or what ever then dont. no one will care. these ships are optional and not required to play the game.

so? someone bought a tier 2 ship. what of it? what does that have to do with endgame, just because they look the same?

Up to this point I have never had an issue with the cash shop ships or anything else in the cash shop. Even lockboxes and keys didn't bother me.

But this is unacceptable. This is criminal. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this game since launch, I will not spend another penny if this is how things are going to be moving forward.

If we own the ship(any ship) from the C-Store, we should not be paying another $20 for the fleet version. 1 or 2 tokens at $5 each is acceptable, but 4 is just disrespectful.

T4 and T5 ships should be 1 token while t3 and t2 ships are 2 tokens. Not 4, never 4 for a ship you already paid for.

Everything else about Season 6 is pretty awesome though

PWE are money vampires

Sadly, there is NO fleet upgrade for our Excelsior that I can see. But, they can give us the dog ugly Cheyenne class in two forms... priceless

Time > Dilithium > Zen > Ship

Nothing Cost Cash, unless you're impatient and have to have it now. Me I can wait a few days, best Zen Store Buy until you're able to farm near 50k easy a day is Character Slots anyways... but then we get back to the Time Factor....

For Me, my 24 pull me 46,080 Dilithium a Day before I play. Granted it takes a hour or two to log and do those two Dailies 24 times.
