If you go buy a lottery ticket and it says you have a chance to win $2, $10, $100,000, and $1,000,000,000, do you assume those are all equal probabilities?

No, because that would be quite frankly silly. I don't think this is hugely different. If you're at all familiar with the game you'll know that.

Look at it like this, always consider that they will never make it that easy to aquire something good. And in future misleading promo material, always interpret it to yourself as saying, "This is the next way we plan to suck your wallet dry."

I must have opened close to 15 of the reinforcement packs some time ago (before they increased in price on the exchange) and got mostly crap. No Tuffli despite some people saying they got it frequently. I read others saying they opened lots as well and got nothing so it's not a sure thing.

My luck wasn't there when opening the boxes but fortunately this promo occurred and instead of it being a 46 million ship it was significantly less. I got mine for 16 million (others got it for even less) and there's plenty at 18-19 million when I last checked. I almost bought one last week at 40+ million. Now THAT would have made me feel unlucky.

Now there are 3, one for 50 milion, one for 55 and one for... 400 milion. Yes, 400.

Suddendly I realize I am FAR away from my so-longed Tuffli.

Hope the promo make the prices go down a *bit* because 400 milion for a single, non combat, ship is a *bit* too much.

Are you looking under 'All Items'? That tends to show less than what's available and at a higher price. Select 'Reward Packs' and/or 'Very Rare' as a quality category to show the cheapest prices.

Edit: I checked the exchange and by looking under either 'rewards packs' or 'very rare' It does indeed have a lot more and they start from 17 million.

OMG Thank you so much, this info made my day.

I always searched in 'All' category, now I know where I can find what I need.

You're right, I found so many Tuffli and they start for 17 milion.


Now I am SO close to my own Tuffli freighter.

Personally I don't understand why the Jem hadar ship is so good. I can understand having it for its rarity but the 1000 day ship beats it I think.

I have no interest in Jem hadar ship too.

My character is a Starfleet Captain and will only fly Starfleet vessels.

Never wanted any lockbox ship or similar for this reason. I can instead make a thought about going Lifetime for the 1000day one.


Tuffli is simply a necessity for access to functions and the devs were smart to design it to be non-faction specific.

Took the liberty of looking at the specs of this Officer Pack Promo :

Each Reinforcements Duty Officer Pack will include:

4 Common or Better Duty Officers
2 Uncommon or Better Duty Officer
1 Rare or Better Duty Officer

Not !!!

Especially when it comes to that rare or better Duty Officer. Just bought one, and that rare or better was NOT included !!! Nice waste of my Zen's.

Someone in my fleet said they didn't get a rare or better doff. That might be a bug. I would submit a support ticket and find out. Every pack I have brought had 1 blue or purple doff in it.
