I mean when sitting around the table, do they all chuckle when they come up with a new grind.. saying " oh, this will really get them in an uproar"? cause at this point, they know its not very popular.. (and cryptic, there is a difference between people doing the grind cause they want something and liking the grind..)..
Well that's the point, sadly. You can grind each day and "earn" your "totally free starship", or, if you have no time or patience, can spend your money/Lobi instead.
Truth be told, I'm not sure which option I prefered more - a free 9-console variant with a purchasable 10-console upgrade (C-Store, Fleet-Store, Lobi Store), or this grind. I know Cryptic has to earn money, but still, there's a limit as to how much grind players can take. Especially since it's probably going to be something tedious and pointless, like the winter race.
Likely from Tribble. And yeah, I'm mildly annoyed, too.
Welcome to Eternal Glory of the Klingon Empire Online. Cowards and traitors please take a number and wait to be ganked.
My official eternal issue: Why no muscle definition slider? Let's have some equal-opportunity sexiness, Cryptic!
PWE: NO to mandatory ARC! At least make it optional!
meh. I only play with canon ships, so yet again, enjoy the grind to everyone.. lol...
I do find it kind of shallow and pedantic that the anniversary event has been turned into a grind.. what happened to having a featured episode that rewarded you with it at the end.. and why does cryptic think the player base loves the grind?

This, so much this.
The previous anniversary missions gave the ship as a reward, same with Sphere of Influence.
Why change this Cryptic? Was Tim Russ that expensive?
I hope they reconsider this, and give the ships as mission rewards, instead of another useless grind...
Talk about sucking the fun out of everything with the stupid grinds Cryptic...
All this griniding is stupid and ridiculous, I for one am not doing it because its stupid and annoying, and its a sci ship. Who gives a hot diggity damn. I dont care how pretty it is I AM NOT grinding for a POS ship
VA Romulan Tactical Ar'kif Carrier, VA Romulan Engineering Scimitar Dreadnought, VA Federation Tactical Advanced Mirror Escort. You can try, but you will fail.

Whaaaat? In past years they just had some mission and then it was ours, this is stupid. Maybe it will work like this, doing the mission will give you the amount you need and theres your ship, else why bother. I wont grind for it, I have enough fleet and ZEN starships anyway, just sad to see it take this turn,
