Nice lockbox. Pity you guys didn't go for the hat trick and introduce the Dommy Battle Cruiser in there too. (My fave Dommy design and the one you didnt include but hey Im not complaining! Just add it later on some time )

Dominion Dreadnaught. Dommy Dreddy he is the law.

Brandon, you need to help your higher ups see how retarded this situation is.


Store ship that can be played all characters on an account: 2500 zen

Lobi store ship that can be played by one single character: 800 lobi = ~100 boxes = 11250 zen

Attack ship that is no longer available by any means except buying on the exchange, for one single character, 350 million EC/1.4 million per key sold = 250 keys = 28125 zen


Seriously bro.

Looks like Cryptic is overcompensating to win over fans who are sick of lockboxes. How original.

"As another added bonus for owners of a Jem?Hadar Attack Ship, there will now be a Hangar item available for use exclusively for the Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier that will allow this ship to launch a wing of Jem?Hadar Attack Ships. Scaling quality levels of these items will be available for purchase from the Shipyard Store, Dilithium Store, or Fleet Store only if you have obtained the Jem?Hadar Attack Ship through a prior promotional event. Additionally, obtaining either the Jem?Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier or Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier will unlock a new material that can be used on existing Jem?Hadar Attack Ships."

So I'm a hard core carrier pilot and all my toons are Eng and Sci as they fit best into the roll for the full on carriers. I look at this and go really you messed that up big time as most of the core of the carrier community don't fly escorts and don't or would not even own the Jem?Hadar Attack Ship.

I feel like I'm being punished by this item falling way outside my normal game play. Plus as we know you can't get them now but on the exchange for starting as low as 340,000,000.

I'm sorry but this was really stupid and not thought out well.

If we had a clue when we had a chance to get this item that would not be a big deal but this was out of left field.

Devs can you please rethink this as that is a very unlikely combo or even bring back the change to get the ship for a short time.

With the Temporal Lockbox we have ships that in order to get their full potential you need to spend not hundred but thousands of real money that begs the question, why spending time on creating sets only 1-2% of the player base could realistic could use.

There is a cash shop, instead things are being handled in a casino fashion ... 2500 Zen ship? no unique bridge BUT ship only some players will ever seen? we will work on it.

Well, the point is for lockbox/lobi ships to be very very rare. Therefore the average cost you calculated.
Store ships are faction ships. These are not. Can't say that I disagree with Cryptic on this one.

We'll also be posting a FAQ with a bullet list, similar to this one, in the very near future.

Will there be any plans to make available the JHAS from Doff packs like in the past while the Dominion lockbox is available?

It would all be solved by putting all the Lobi store items in the cstore where they should have been in the first place.
It is not like they have not put single character bound stuff in there before.

Nope, thats just a bs excuse they keep throwing around to justify ships costing $300. It is nothing to do with them being very very rare.
If that were the case, the Breen ship would never had been made available to everyone for free!
