If no one buys them then maybe they'll move them over to the C-store, they have to recoup the costs of making the costumes somewhere. Something so popular but makes no sales? Something must be wrong.
People will buy them though. I certainly will, as have 256 lobi sitting around doing nothing anyway, and have the Wells class AND the temporal warfare set, and have wanted this uniform since almost the moment I won my Wells. I've got the surplus Lobi, so why shouldn't I?
What else to do in this game?
And more: everything you do gives you EC. Different amounts, but the stream is constant. Fly into SB24 -- get reward -- sell it. (and with returning item drops for STF its just gonna get better) All small drops from missions, even when they go down the replicator, add up to tens of thousands ECs.
When I started playing I saw people selling D'Koras for insane price of 60-70 mil... Now, at VA level, its *just* 60-70 mil.
So, from my perspective, I'd better throw some EC for costumes, than converting dilithium into Zen to buy them from C-Store.
So 200 lobi's @ 4 per box is 50 boxes @ 1.5 million EC for a key ?
So that's 75,000,000 EC's
Look on other outfit's prices. Most of them don't go over 10 mil EC on the exchange. Even ships that cost 800 lobi is still in 60-70 mil range.
You know...I haven't posted things in ages on here...but I will say this. The current greed that I see is what keeps me from coming back to this game at all. I used to love collecting ships for the sake of collecting them. But I can't throw my money at a game that doesn't give me story content to justify the need for selling fluff items to make up for it.
As for grinding Dilithium and such?? I'm disabled, so I go in and out of the hospital so that isn't an option for me. When Perfect World /Cryptic decide to actually start advancing the main STO storyline and and not just in small increments...I'll resume spending here again. Sure...one person saying this won't hurt them in the least...but at least I can use he money I would have spent here on games that don't end up making me feel cheated for buying them.
