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.
This event happened before and will happen again ... I guess if someone is gonna fart within the next week, it's because of Romulans as well ... "It smells bad in here ... thats obviously evidence of all that pressure caused by upcoming Romulans"

Um... no, it's not obvious at all.

I was right on the teaser for Diablo 3 and I bet I will be right again because these pictures they keep releasing smell a lot like Romulan Faction to me.

I dont think they will ever get rid of any of these ships. not everyone plays the game from the start. you always have new players who come in and i think they will want them to have a chance to get them, as well as older players who missed out.

i see no logical reason for them to retire these ships unless they stop making money, which does not seem to be the case.

What I have learned from lock boxes:

1) If I am determined to have a particular lock box ship, the best route to go is to sell keys on the exchange, and buy the ship from the proceeds. That way you know exactly what it will cost, and whether or not you're willing to pay that amount. This of course relies on a goodly number of people not doing this, so the ships will be on the exchange.

2) Open lock boxes only if you are willing to accept the guaranteed content as a fair return on the cost of the key.

3) You might get lucky, but you probably won't.

Hope it's not the last time - am always quite amused when another oportunity to obtain a popular ship via DOFF pack (or whatever) - takes the emphasis off the obscene-priced exchange sale ones.

If it's profitable, they won't stop doing it. Period. So, fear not! You will always have new chances to gamble ridiculous sums of money on a comically overpowered minor ship of a minor enemy species. o/

What you find $300 US dollars for a virtual item which you don't own and is limited to one character - "obscence"


Obviously most other players live in a different world judging by the success of the ship/pack/promo
