Would have been nice if They had offered a Middle-of-the-Road pack around $60 bucks.

No keys, No Titles, Just the ships and perhaps the Reman Playable Species.

I could have squeezed that into my budget.

cryptic for me there is no intrest in paying 125 dollars for the romulan big lagacy package because there is no tos romulan ward bird of prey that captain james tiberious kirk and the uss enterprise constitution class fought against in balance of terror in the deal. also i do not have 125 dollars to spend in any one month for one single special package. most month i will spend $25.

the starter tos romulan wardird of prey is already my faviourate tos and pre tng romulan warbird. as far as the d'drirex retrofit off the c store that will only be about $25 for one ship or $50 for a 3 pack ship tact, science, engineneering focus ships off the c store

ps if it were possible to buy the special packages using game point cards and perfect world point cards to buy c points to buy off the cstore then maybe i would consider buying special packages.

Personally I am not going to buy it because:
1. I like the KDF, but that might change of course.
2. It is currently beyond my monthly budget I allow myself for spending on "games".

Nonetheless if you look at the items seperately I do understand why it is so expensive.
1. 9 ships - Worth: 2000 Zen/ship - 18.000 zen.
2. 30 master keys - Worth: 1125 Zen/10-key set - 3375 zen
3. Borg liberated reman BOFF - Worth 500 zen - 500
That would total @ 21.875 zen at a rate 118 zen/? (117,7 zen/? when I buy for ?89,99 for 10600 zen) - approx. ?185,-

That was only counting the ships, master keys and the reman BOFF... The unlocking of the Remans as playable race as well as various costume additions in the C-store are NOT used in the calculation.
I know shuttles are probably less then 2000, that is why I arrive at a higher worth price then the 181 euros Cryptic claims.

^I might of gone for that...

As it stands, since it doesn't look like our Romulans will get any Romulan ships w/o paying for them. I find little reason even rolling up a Romulan character.
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.

the big pack also unlocks two reman ship skins, if any hasn't noticed.

Roms will get all the free T1 through T5 ships. The C-Store ships are just slightly better versions of those ships - just as they are for Feds and KDF.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

Maybe I should have worded my question a little clearer, sorry lol.

I also do hope that we get one of the nice 2000 ZEN ships at Tier 5 though like we do with KDF / FED!
This is just a C-store offering at a discount so you aren't going to get any info on your Lib Borg Rom playable species. Supposedly it is happening, but I have heard nothing official.

Ideally yes, The idea is you would have bought all this anyways, now you get it at a discount for buying it all at once. One of the reasons I haven't bought anything yet. Really only the tier 5 D, The T'varo (tier 1, which I may or may not have bought anyways) and the Survivor of Romulus really interest me, Not sure all that is worth 40-45 bucks (since the Starter doesn't have The D'deridex, I will have to buy that seperately later) for the starter, but I am thinking I am a no on the legacy pack. Don't need all those extra ships.

as poor thecosmic1 has said, probably till he is blue in the face. None, None of this stuff is a lifer/former lifer perk. It is standard C-store fanfare and a discount for buying it now. There is no reason to think just cause you paid 200-300 dollars you should get any of it for free. And I say this as somone who paid the 300 dollars as well.

aye.. so basically the pack is full of refits with consoles... okay... something to consider

However when you think about it... romulans who go KDF will have access to all the best consoles in the game.... I'm not sure what their ships will have.. but more options are always good

The price of a game is usually 60 bucks.

The price of expansions in the past have ranged from 25 to 60 bucks.

Those would be fair prices.

125 bucks is way over the top for a pack related to an expansion.

I like the keys and titles. Granted not for 124 dollars. but it is a nice sweetheart deal for those interested in the other stuff.

And that is how I see them. If you want all the stuff the Legacy pack (or starter) has to offer, you also get some titles and 30 master keys. You don't. No biggy, you can walk away and not worry about it.
