I am wondering if Cryptic are planning to remove one ship from the Lobi Store and replace it with a new one and even also remove some things.

To replace it with Voth things and a new ship maybe a Voth battleship, Escort or carrier.

There are plans to release a Voth carrier that you will get it as an reward from a mission.

There must be a reason for this voting and discounted things with 15 %.

Originally the entire contents of the Lobi store changed with every new lockbox and the old stuff was no longer available.

Cryptic changed that and now they just add new stuff to the store without really taking anything out. Not that they won't discontinue items, but current policy seems to be "More Is Better".

The reason for that is because most people hoard Lobi until they see something they really want and won't use it on anything else. It takes time to save up a few hundred Lobi, unless you've got a ton of money and/or Dil-bought Zen to throw at it. By keeping things in the store longer, they're encouraging people to keep buying lockbox keys over the long-haul to get what they want.

They just added the Elachi lockbox and Lobi items, so they're not going to add Voth items or anything else until this promotion is done.

The discount does a couple of things, off the top of my head.

#1 - Encourages people to spend any Lobi they're hoarding so that they'll buy more master keys later.

#2 - Encourages people to buy more master keys or DOFF packs so they can get more Lobi right now to get the discounted items.

This seems very logical to me. I can honestly say it got me to spend a few million EC on keys to get lobi on characters who only had the 20-ish from featured events so they could get the bind-on-pickup items I had wanted for them (one energy whip, a sword, etc).

My main key opener is still slowly hoarding lobi because, well, those keys and lobi went to someone else haha, so I'm only at 300-ish on him. Would take a steep discount before I can buy a ship, but that's something possible with the right discount.
