I've been considering purchasing a new ship or perhaps some other things. A sale would undoubtedly entice me off the fence.

I was so sad when they didn't have a Christmas ship sale (I went wanting for Christmas lol). I wish they would have a service sale, there are a bunch of things I want to buy but it's hard to justify those prices =P. Now that I think about it, I wish they would have more sales more often. By that I mean either have general z-store wide sales when they do have a sale, or do specific items more often.

I get why they wait a long time for a sale, that way when the sale finally does come it's exciting and you want to pounce on it. Unfortunately, over the course of playing this game for well over a year now I've only been able to take advantage of a single ship sale. It's because the ship sales come and go without warnings and they usually only last a weekend. It really sucks when you miss a sale for something you wanted. It's like oh well, there's always next year lol.

I often think about how often Steam has its sales and how often the Steamrunner has been on sale. Kind of wish I could buy all my stuff on Steam .

I been building up my zen for a ship sale. There is a couple of ships I want. And with a sale I can get a better deal and chance for more ships. Depending on the reduction of price. Granted the newest ships won't be on it. But the others I have a few in mind already.

Excelsior Refit
Galaxy Refit
Defiant Refit
Vesta Tactical
Andorian Tactical

Just to name a few.

With exception of the bundles or T5 starships, most consoles aren't bound to the starship builds that they come with. I'm curious how many player's would perceive a ship sale as an opportunity to snag special consoles on the cheap? Not caring so much about using the starships at all.

I'd be interested if they released a ship bundle that I wanted to use.

I tend to use the ships I buy. Next sale they have. To me its a good chance to get a few ships I been wanting.

My Engineer needs a more Eng. based ship. This is where the Excelsior or Galaxy comes in. Since I don't have one more Eng. based. So that will help on that option.

As for my Tact. I saw what "free" ships they offer. I was not pleased. So I'm really going to make use of the Defiant Refit. Later the Vesta tact. or Andorian.

Well the generic +15% Zen sales help with that and everything else. Zen Sales don't get you quite the savings of a 20% off specific item sales, but they're near specific item sales.

During the last ship sale I bought the Odyssey pack, Bortasqu' pack, Armitage, Sao Paulo and Bellapharon.

As soon as there is a ship sale I will buy an Atrox, the Vesta pack, the Regent, probably the Garumba for my KDF tac, and maybe a few more lower-tier ships for some consoles I'm missing.

Only if it includes a Fleet Galaxy-X.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
