I see no evidence that they will stop using the Bug as a neat source of cash. Wait a few months for a whole new generation of players to fantasize about this mythical vessel, and then re-re-rerelease it and watch them go scrambling for the zen.

Someone blew 20,000 ZEN on doff packs today over a year after it launched.

Nice attempt to ramp up demand for the 3 bug ships you got earlier, 2 of which you probably have on the Exchange

Oh, and in case you're wondering, Mr. 20000 came away with the standard Cryptic prize of a middle finger.

Also, if you're still playing the lockbox/doff pack lotto scam at this point in STO, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

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

It will be back when they see player/ship ration below a certain limit.
Now imagine, when and if they bring some more powerful ship after 5 years

We have no idea what's coming this year, what are you talking about ... pretty sure between Season 8 and 9 will be some kind of content-drought, so why not bring back the Jem-Ship back between ~May and ~December ...

I wonder what they're going to do with all that money. @_@

I'm picturing Dan using it to purchase a litter (if he hasn't already) that he'll have the interns hall him around in.

It's really obvious that this event is being done to pay off people that worked on the Romulan Faction over these couple of years. I could care less I had dilithium bought zen had enough 4 packs got 1 purple item to sell for some nice money and that's it didn't pay a dime.

EDIT: Btw it was not the bug ship it was ship equipment that I don't remember exactly what it was though but hope it sold by now.
