How about making Lobi's account bound, and make 1 lobi worth say 1000 or 10,000 GPL? Keep the gold (pressed latinum) farming business alive?
I mean come on, you can buy the shuttles (woo, shuttles) on the exchange, and the other stuff isn't that essential. Boffs on ground aren't useful after the story content is finished, and do they even give any advantage in space?
Lobi stuff is so overpriced any IMO.
They won't do it as-is because it would create the opportunity for a ridiculously time-consuming exploit to generate an unlimited amount of "free" lobi for your account.
Liberated Romulan Sci boff, of course. Only really useful choice on the list w/ its efficient trait, and for the rp Romulan captain, necessary in order to get another purple quality Romulan boff on your crew.
However, if the Photonic tac can be updated w/ Romulan visuals, I'll change my vote.
Judging by these "votes" I'm pretty sure that the Photonic Tactical Officer will not be picked. However, it would be so much better if instead of voting on what will be 40%, each player is given the choice: One Item in the Lobi Store for 40%! That would make EVERYBODY HAPPY!
I wouldn't mind seeing the Temporal Destroyers go for 40% off. They're my favorite ship in the game, and I would love to get them cheaper.
That said, I voted for the Romulan Lib Borg Boff. It isn't bugged and non-customizable like the Photonic Tac Officer; and it will make it easier/cheaper to get a complete Captain and Bridge Crew of liberated Borg.
Also, I wouldn't vote for the Photonic Tac or the Timeship until we get a Romulan specific look for both.
*votes for "Put that stuff into the GPL store instead and finally give latinum (which is supposed to be the most valuable stuff in the Trek universe) some meaning over lobi crystals (which canon established as worthless junk anyway)*
I would also vote for this. I don't like lockboxes anyway, but this would at least give us a way to earn items in-game other than just the endless dilithium farm.
