I for one, and this is bugging the hell out of me, am wondering how long this discount offer extendes for. I want to buy the Legacy pack. but will not have the money to do so until the 31st of April (Thanks monthly wages), So i would be really dissapointed to see the price raised ridiculously higher than i can afford, and only just missing the launch by 10 small days.

I can't see them ending the offer quite yet ; just an assumption, but let's face it - it doesn't make good business sense.

I assume that they'll leave the offer open for a least a lshort time into the actual launch of the expansion. There will likely be players who didn't play the open Beta on Tribble and will decide to buy the pack based on initial experience of the new content.

Furthermore, the Dev's must be aware that a good number of people are paid monthly, at the end of the month, and may be (like yourself) holding out until payday before making the purchase.

But to emphasise - this is only an assumption.

Your assumption makes sense. I would agree with it too, but there always is that little bit of doubt. One can only hope you're right.

Well, there's that, and the fact that these are people who work for a gaming company... If there's one thing constant in the universe, it's that people who work for gaming companies rarely do things that make sense to anyone else but them.

Come to think of it, that's not just people who work for gaming companies... That's practically everyone. Someone remind me how we got to and manage to stay on top the food chain on this planet...

I just hope that they realise the amount of money they can still gain post launch by eaving the offer on until next month. People are obviously gonna be less inclined to buy it when the price of it goes up.

I'm still on the fence myself, but mostly, I'm on the side that says, don't buy it now.
Without the Hirogen playable race, I lost my motivation to play the faction.
And I don't know if that decision is ever going to be reversed.

If I knew for sure it would be, then I'd buy the pack and save it for the right time.

No point spending all that money when I'm not actually going to play the faction and will be unable to claim the items.

I'm hoping the pack stays available, even at a higher price for quite a while, so I have the luxury of time of seeing if the playable race I want will come out.

Since that is what is affecting my decision to buy the pack, it could be a long time coming!

We invented guns.

And before that, we used swords and other sharp metal weapons.

Besides, when was the last time you had to go out gathering plants and kill your dinner?
Or fight off wild animals and invading armies?

And top of the food chain really means "we farm plants to harvest and tame animals to kill so we don't starve!"

As has been stated several times, and is in the FAQ, the Packs aren't going anywhere. The only thing that changes is their price.
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.

Honestly more likely that they'll end the "Pre-Order Discount" when the Expansion fully comes out. So, May 21st is likely when it will be ended.

If it does, i dread the price it will become. Hopefully, they don't end it yet.
