Maybe I'll get one on the exchange if I manage to scrape together the EC but I'm not impressed with the pricing for a per character item.
This sums up my thoughts! Reading through this thread. I have to say, it's about time everyone finally took a stand against this price gouging crap and per toon purchases!

Good; enjoy your time and your money how you see fit. I don't think anyone here would debate that you have the right to do as you will.

However, I find it funny that you describe those of us saying "no" to this ridiculous pricing and blatent slap-in-the-face by PWE as the "hive mind." That is generally reserved for the flocks of sheep and mobs of lemmings who go, "OOOH SHIIIINY!" and drop cash on a whim.

I think our point is this: we (the aforementioned "hive mind," in your words) seem to all pay for certain items, but THIS one is too much for too little - and is, quite simply, an insult to the players who DO support STO monetarily as well as by creating the fan/player base.

Lastly, this is a hobby to a great many folks. As such, they DO have stake in the game, its play, and its outcome, and have every right to state their feelings, insights, and suggestions here - that's why these forums exist. Not deluded enough to think the Devs read every entry (especially ones that need a publisher and/or a page count...), but I know they do pay some attention to things said herein.


Incidentally, when they start selling bridges with players' names on them in the Z-store, well, I hope you enjoy that one, too...

Brilliant idea nerfing the one ground mission that had the best chance to incentivize the new combat EV suits.

I wouldn't mind an original series EVA suit like Kirk and Spock had in the "Tholian Web" episode...

That would be awesome. What about adding this option to the current EV suit offering? Might take SOME of the bad taste out of everyone's mouth from this fiasco.

How nice for you.

QFT.

Back to the discussion at hand, yeah, 700 Zen is too expensive, after all, even the weapon pack is almost a Quarter of that. If it were the same price as the weapon pack, or redonkculously good stats to warrant the massive price tag, it would have sold much better. Why? Cause then I would have bought one. Not at the moment however.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Certainly, or, at least, almost as well as the ones that drop for free according to the stats...
