Get it now?


I'm sorry if that seems a bit harsh, but the ridiculous sense of entitlement in this thread baffles me.

We paid ACTUAL money for it and YOU receive it for nothing basically. We demand better compensation.

Cryptic DOES owe us more than the 150 marks for 150 lobi we spent. Heck lets us trade it in for just the lobi back so I can buy something else.

You do realise I paid the 150 lobi too, right? And yet, somehow, I'm not whining and moaning that suddenly I'm not a special snowflake and demanding compensation that I have no right to. You paid the 150 lobi, you got the gear, end of story. Now they're giving you free stuff for nothing and you're demanding more.

I would like to know if we can use our Boffs like on new Romulus? Defera would be the same question...

cheers

As I saved Nukeria Prime for a rainny day, this reputation will fire me up to go there !
Hopefully I'll come back from my break; this break is fun; I play intellectual games.

I hope STO get's better ...

YES.

Swapping them out constantly is annoying and robs the other sets of their abilities.

Though I can see reasons why they wouldn't

That's a good point. And storing five EV suits is a little bit of a pain. I keep them in my account bank myself. At least then they're never further away than my Ready Room.

But an EV suit is standard equipment on every single starship since Archer left dock.

It's weird that we have to purchase them from other vendors. I can understand a top notch Very Rare one, but there should be a standard mk1 that we can slot over armor at least.

You know. It would be highly logical if the sonic weapons inflicted disorientation or something to humanoids, or outright stunned Romulans and Vulcans with their super sensitive hearing.

So... You (and the mysterious 'we') let Cryptic sucker you into paying real money for keys so you could get Lobi, and now you're under the impression that you're owed something more?

Gotcha.

Here's a thought: Quit paying real money for keys. Go grind some Dils or some EC, and get your keys that way. It will significantly reduce your butthurt, since you won't have paid real money for virtual items.

A fool and his money are soon parted, as everyone can see here.

$40 in keys is nothing to me, but the fact is the exchange rate of 150 marks to 150 lobi in not right, it should be 10 to 1 conversion.

there are 100 dil ones in the special items bit of the dil store, same as the ones from Boldly They Rode, just named 'pre-owned'

Yes those weapons weren't awesome at all. Just ok to equip boffs with. Armors were useful too, for the same reason. Now all this junk is going to be hidden behind unlocks and dilithium. And there is no EV suit drops. I wouldn't mind this change if such a feature existed but currently it's not the case, and this isn't alt friendly at all.

I won't really miss the crap from those boxes, even if i don't like seeing free gear going away (like the STF store just 6 months ago), I just think it's not alt friendly at all, because free gear helps alts a lot, especially if you don't intend to play it every day, and it makes the game even more painful for alts. With the upcoming expansion this isn't a good sign. Cryptic makes alts a pain but still wants us to level up some more in may. Stupid.

100 dil is still too much dil to equip boffs. And 100 dil for something we'd consider as vendor trash if there were EV suit drops is laughable.

This could be easily rectified by adding an EV Suit option to crafting. Even the worst kind available is sufficient for mining if that's all you want it for, or for that one New Romulus mission where the BOFFS need suits.
