I agree, now it is no longer possible for me to complete the "ferengi marauder" ship set. I just got 1 part of it and my plan was to open lockboxes from time to time, collect Lobis, and then after a while buy the missing set parts.

And beside that ... where's the Lobi-Store now?? No NPC on Drozana station?

Actually this is the opposite of how a ferengi would think... items being a limited time will on encourage me to not care about them... however, always instock, non limited items make me covet them and want them more, enticing me to gain the currency required to get them.

A ferengi would want me to want what hes selling, so he would make sure to always have that shiny item I want so I could give him my money.

Right-click on the lobi item in your inventory and select 'Use.' You can get it there.

I wouldn't mind if ANY item would migrate into the Gold-Pressed Latinum store.

No, can't do. No money for Cryptic involved with GPL.

Season 6: Wallet Under Siege strikes again.
Lobi store will soon replace Z-store and for that it will make dilithium exchnage useless

This is true, atleast for some consumers. I suppose it would be more accurate to say that CrypticWorld is more like the hilariously stupid and covetous Ferengi from TNG rather than the wiley business savvy Ferengi from DS9.

The point of phasing them out is that it compels people to buy now as opposed to save. Then when something else comes along, maybe something you feel is better, you have to buy more because you blew what you had.
The highlighted made me giggle.

Yes, giggle. Not laugh, or chuckle, or s******. Giggle is the only word ridiculous enough to be appropriate to the situation.
