Once I have my 1000 pictures to trade in for my FREE Breen ship, and I have extra pictures, what can I use them for? Is there a console I can trade for romulan marks or something useful in game? Is there any plans for a console of sorts for extra pictures of Q?
I'd reccomend keep them until further notice.
Actually, I would reccomend collect more of them. Who knows, there might be a new ship next year, and in that case you might have a headstart on getting another 1000 quicker. Lets say you'll manage 600 extras... ...then you'll only need 400 next year to get the ship.
i think the cryptic QA team must have overlooked this due to doing extensive testing and adjustment...
no srsly...i'm 100% sure nobody had asked this question when they came up with the idea...
also why 40 per day up to 1000...why not 4 and up to 100? Or 1 up to 25? Some things just do not follow any pattern that might be understandable to humans in this game.
It makes sense when you take a look at the holiday item vendor: you can buy an insignificant amount of pictures for a significant amount of lobi crystals. Which is why i won't compensate the races "lost" during my holidays and won't get that ship anyway. And i'm pretty sure many people will do the same. (At least I hope so).
I know that from my own standpoint, after getting all the 1000 photos on all my toons in 2 days time I will have run 275 races and i am sorry but I am not running any more for a few surplus photos even if they are worth GPL later.
Chances are I will basically give STO a break until maybe the third anniversary and go to another game since this one has distracted me for so long.
My advice therefore is it really worth running the race when better rewards are available elsewhere once you have the ship, especially since the dilithium market is flatlining and zen is dirt cheap?
It would make sense for the pictures to be convertible to at least GPL. But they're not and I'm really not sure any available conversion for them is planned.
I think I won't be collecting them after getting the ships (a couple days, hopefully).
And I also don't know what I'll actually do with the winter commodities. I guess they'll be virtually unsaleable after the event ends, since there'll be no use for them... until the next year, possibly. But who can tell what the next winter event will be like?
