If you don't make enough money to support online gaming purchases either A get out of the rapid food service industry, or B stop complaining about things you cannot afford.

They already made a concession for "low-income" players by making the game F2P. Everything else is just fluff for those of us that can afford it.
I didn't buy a single zen / c point and I have the rocket launcher, mines and MACO officer.

Nor did I spend hours a day online.

You really just have no idea of how to play a market I think.

They were running them hidden within episodes.....and I do not spend real money for in game rewards and feature updates. I already pay to play, I do not allow my pocket book to be abused or double dipped upon. If they want me to buy it put it into the c-store at a reasonable price. No gambling bs

Don't read it wrong, I never spent cash on keys either, all EC in game, got the full Ferengi set, Galor and D'kora. The point is if you don't have the disposable income in or out of game then these rewards are not for you.

I'm well aware they they were in the episodes, took about a total of half an hour to gather all the lobi, thats not really grinding and it was a such an insignificant amount to basically top off people that were close to actual rewards or give people "something" in the form of the whip.

If I truly lacked empathy or a conscience I would not take time out of my day to help someone who had a less fortunate education than myself correct their gross misunderstanding of words in the English language.

The Energy sword is over prices at 50 Lobi, compared to the energy whips 15.
In fact a number of items pices went up.
150 lobi for the component to upgrade to daily ground Tholian ground set? So much for buy it or work for it. Just like the Fleet modules, it's work for it AND buy it.

I am surprised at the cost of the Tholian Fighter and Carrier being "so low".
The feregi shuttle was 800, while the fighter is 300.
And the Carrier being 800? I expected it to be 2000.

That right there is the weirdest. But, I do remember the Devs mentioning rotating items in and out of the lobi store before. So this has been in the making for awhile.

But the new prices are weird, that's for sure.

I agree with post #11. I was saving Lobi for a Ferengi Console set. Its hard to win the Ferengi Cruiser and then harder still to get enough Lobis for the set. You need hundreds of Lobi to get the set and buying more than 2-3 keys a week off the exchange is difficult. For the people who have been slowly working towards a Ferengi set this feels like another of Cryptics famous pull down your pants and pee on your customer moment. I worked for about half the Lobis needed for the set and now its gone. Its insane for Cryptic to pull old gear people are working towards without any warning. I bought a few hundred old Ferengi boxes so I could continue buying a couple keys a week thing but Cryptic doesnt care. Keys are already 2 million and I suppose if Ferengi Lobi collectors were still buying keys off the exchange they might be 3000000.

Cryptic seems like it only cares about people that can and will buy 500 keys to open 500 boxes so that maybe they will get enough Lobi for the set.

For those of us that worked for our 300-400 Lobi crystals only to watch the sets be pulled, its another dark day in Cryptic history.

I liked paying each month better than Cryptic shafting everybody except for the Wallet players.

It makes me wonder why Cryptic hates us so much. It makes me want to play other games. It makes me want to never spend money with Cryptic again because of their greed. Stuff like this makes me hate this company and the people that work for it. I know they are good people but they sure dont seem like they care about us. And that is disappointing. Im pretty angry. Just a slap in the face.

I want to like this game more than any other but this is why I keep buying other games.
