Why not make them a per character unlock like they did w/ the stupid EV suits and place them on the c-store for 700 zen each?
Exactly, the old tired excuse of CBS not letting them put these on for general sale is looking more and more like the bs we thought it was from the beginning.

If it was to just make more money fine, but do not try to cover up the shady business you have become and at least just tell the truth...

Not to nitpick....

But, the Ferengi box has a chance for 10 items while the Cardassian only has 8 items. Looks like the Ferengi one is a better choice... the Cardassian only edging it out because of the Spiral Waves..

Maybe add another GQ Doff pack to the Cardassian box... not a Mini-Pack.. a full blown one..

I am happy to see the return of a few Ferengi Items tho.. started saving up 200 Lobi on my alts w/o that Console 62 ^_^

I had a feeling in my lobes you might say that investing in the Tholian Carrier was a bad idea. Glad I held onto my Weavers tho...
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

You think that your beta test was bad?

Even if the lock boxes were avilable 24/7 and lets face it with the exchange they are always avilable. They are still more rare then the regular ships. One lockbox ship = 1 toon with the ship.

While an account wide unlock is still for all toons on their account. And how many folks only have 1 toon.

So I still buy the line on CBS not wanting to open the flood gates with non-fed ships.

They still are rare but now new players also have a chance to get those ships. Plus - the boxes will be there only for a week. I guess it's a good thing.

Wow... it's been a while since I saw them come that close to admitting they actually did something wrong

Well at least you didn't leave the poor old cardassian in it's previously hideous state. But honestly, the only way to truly end a disease is to stop it at the source. As long as lock boxes are dropping, no matter how much good stuff you give to them, there will always be complaints.

I guess my confusion comes from having played WoW. See in WoW when a mount is called rare it means insanely hard to get and usually only available for a limited time. There are mounts in that game that aren't even available anymore giving those who did get to grab them a sense of prestige.

Reintroducing a mount makes it less than rare IMO. It depreciates it's value.
