The boxes are pretty fantastic by past standards, honestly. The base Lobi amount is far more respectable and the contents are all good enough and in-demand to the point where it's very difficult to lose much money opening one.

I would still like to see just one more Lobi in there, 5 is a big difference than 4. If they boosted it to 5 with the next one, I would feel a lot better.

I must agree as well that this lock box is much better. They are showing that they are listening though at an awfully slow rate... however between all the rage posts it was probably not easy to make the right decisions that are now making us happier.

They took a risk and I hope they are seeing better sales of it as it will encourage them that their risk was worth while.

I feel much better about the money spent, though I am not as interested in this ship this time around vs the bug and the tuffli so I wont be spending as much, the other stuff is pretty good stuff. I have over 60K bonus pool for fleet credits... that crap is great...


I am also really really enjoying the reward packs from Nukura... they are freaking great! I have already used the Lobi to get a Mark XII very rare set of the Tholian ground set. Just playing the time slot with the medium missions nets a but load of fleet marks and you get so many advanced reward packs and they drop really good stuff. Almost feels wrong...

There is a negative point I've forgotten to mention though, with all these OP components and ship releases, PvE becomes incredibly easy and boring. With all these carriers, galors, and now fleet ships, cruiser mobs don't even last a second when we run the daily deferi missions, red alerts, b'tran exploration, or whatever mission you want from the list. The challenge level is close to zero now.

We need a super-elite mode, with mobs having a lot more powers and abilities, otherwise we'll get bored soon.

The concept behind the Tholian box is nice and it's *not* a complete rip off like past ones were. However, I don't like how we're getting Tholian ships out of them. That just doesn't make any sense.

Do I like this new box better than the previous yes? Yes. However liking something more than something else does not mean I actually like it for what it is. I would rather eat dirt than eat a turd, but that doesnt mean I actually like eating dirt. Likewise, I will never actually like random purchases where you do not know exactly what you are buying.

Since you didnt quote anyone I can only assume you were replying to post. If that is the case, then I am not a "nagus", I am a fiend

Agreed. Tholians do not breath oxygen, are giant buugs, and live on demon class planets. Their ships would ne well ove 200 degrees, and the controls would be made for big insects. Tholian shipps make no sense.
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!
