Seriously, devs. Give us the damned Attack Ship Hangar. This is ridiculous. You guys KNEW this was a stupid idea when you did it.
I guarantee that someone at that meeting said, "But that's going to piss them off. Especially if we don't tell them and just let them figure it out the hard way. We're seriously just going to be dicks to our paying players?"
To which, the guy at the head of the table undoubtedly replied, "Yes, Jeff. We're going to screw over the players that keep us in business. Again. And we're going to do it, again and again and again, until we have driven this ugly beast we've created into the ground. And we'll keep going. We will continue to tick off our paying customer base until their heads explode from sheer incredulity at our brazen disregard for basic business practices."
"Jesus, Frank... did you take your meds?"
"NO, JULIE! I DID NOT TAKE MY MEDS! HOW ABOUT YOU JUST SHUT THE HELL UP AND DO YOUR JOB. THESE ROCKETS AREN'T GOING TO FUEL THEMSELVES, NOW ARE THEY?!?!"
That's how I imagine PWE dev meetings go down.
well...they did tell us, its in the blog explainning the dominion lockbox.
I just got the Dreadnought, and I honestly thought this was a bug that I couldn't buy the JHAS pets until I came across this thread.
I get that they said before how to unlock it but at the same time I didn't read that update till now my bad. Now though how am I supposed to get the Attack ship? I don't even want it I just want the hanger pets. this just makes me feel uneasy about spending more money into this game... I really like this game and I don't have a problem with dumping money into it but this just rubs me the wrong way...
I spent so much money getting the Dreadnought, and I may never be able to get a JHAS because they are so rare no matter how much EC I have to spend at the auction.
Just went through the thread and didn't find a SINGLE mod/dev reply...
I have to ask.
I know you understood this was going to piss people off before it was implemented. So why do it? I'm not talking about pissing off just a few people, but everyone that spent the money to get the Dread but didn't already own the JHAS.
Do you people understand that, even though we don't know you personally, some of us actually hate you personally? Not a burning, seething, deep-rooted hatred, mind you. More of a, 'if I saw you bleeding out on the sidewalk, I'd hesitate a few seconds in trying to save your life' hate. But only because I'd momentarily wonder whether it would be a betterment of humankind to ignore the issue, then have my morals (which you don't seem to have) kick in and I'd patch your malicious ass up.
There are some that actually HATE you because of the manipulative and deceptive business practices you employ. I mean they HAAAAAAAATE-hate you and would likely become violent if the words 'Star Trek Online' and 'dev' were uttered in the same sentence in their presence.
Is it ok that you guys have some few people that actually despise your existence? Because of a VIDEO GAME?
I'd probably drink myself to sleep every night if I knew that more than a handful of people loathed every fiber of my being. Especially without ever having met me.
Just saying, devs.

Reason: extra hate
