It's nice that those suits will be finally available in game. I too think that 700z is a little too much, but I'm not going to cut my wrist because of it.

I wonder what will be the price on the exchange.

Granted the new ev suits look amazing but honestly there are not many missions to use them in boldly and Nukara are the 2 I know of and with foundry down atm I don't see any new ones coming soon how bout better ship gear or sets or that melee pvp we heard about a wile back cause Andoira is a barren wast land or pop more missions in where this gear would be useful

So now you're selling character costumes on a per character basis instead of an account unlock, and at such a reasonable price too.

Less than a month before Guild Wars 2 launches, then I won't even bother checking the forums to see if a miracle happened and our original STO came back. Good riddance Cryptic.

I was about to get cranky about such a pretty space suit coming out when I JUST completed my Tholian set this morning.

Then I saw the price tag. I agree with pretty much everyone here that $7.00 is a bit steep for a per-character unlock for an EVA suit. I would be fine with that price for an account-wide, untradeable EVA suit, but not on a per-character basis.

Fleet Module = 500 Zen.

They sell from between 14 to 20 Million EC.

That should give you something of an idea. I'll call it now:

First Contact EVA Suit = 25-30 Million.

I'd be first in line to fork over 700z if this was a Motion Picture/WoK EV Suit.

Because those suits are awesome!

The Klingon Suit looks cool. But not enough for me to ante up for it. Besides, I worked hard for my Klink's look, I don't want a helmet over that smexy mug.

I feel bad for the art team because those suits are beautiful.

Sorry Cryptic, but $7 for a per-character, non-reclaimable piece of equipment that already has minimal in-game use? Yeah, no. What's doubly insulting is that this is just another example of how little you respect or value your customer base.

I have 7 active characters between the Fed and KDF, if you think I'm going to pay you $49 for these suits then you are sadly mistaken. $7 - $10 for an account wide version would have been acceptable and I would have gladly paid you $14 - $20. As things stand you will be getting $0 from me on these.

Correction: PWE doesn't value or respect it's customer base. Cryptic does, but has to follow their orders, and thus appear to have that mentality, but it's laughably absurd that you could think Cryptic is like that.

And before anyone responds to this, keep in mind that I've been with STO since Open Beta, and I still support Cryptic (And you all know that's saying something). Not PWE though.

I was going to quote someone in this thread, after reading each and every post. Yet, oddly, the post I had in mind seems to have vanished.

That said, I'll echo the sentiment I meant to quote. This is bad business, we all (and I mean each every single person that's posted in this thread 'all') recognize that this is bad business. And bad business shouldn't be encouraged.

Just say NO people. Yeah, it's shiny, yeah it looks phenomenal. Yet, it's also pillaging the player-base.

Just say NO and don't give a cent (whether actual or virtual, i.e. Energy Credits et. al.) to such a proposition as this.

Might've been nice if this suit had been packaged with a 'First Contact' kit, including a special Phaser Rifle, Mek'leth and special remodulator, along with the suit bonuses.

Yet, this EV suit, in and of itself, character-bound and all, is simply not worth $7.

Hell, in this gaming market, ya do realize that $7 will buy ya an alright open-world Batman game for your I-Pad? Might not be the best game ever, but it's bound to get a lot more mileage than a character-bound EV suit for your 7 bucks.

JUST SAY NO AND DON'T BUY PEOPLE!!! THEY'LL EVENTUALLY GET THE HINT AND HOPEFULLY COME BACK DOWN TO EARTH!
