Ok ... I think I'm gonna bow out on this one as it calls for not just a grind but a C-store bundle purchase to get the set bonus.

I'll stick with my cruisers and escorts.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

There are 2 different set bonuses, and the C-store versions are not required for the first, which comes from the FE and is detailed in the blog. I can't imagine you read the whole blog that fast

Cheers,

"In late February (next month), we?ll be releasing a 3-pack C-Store bundle of each factional Dyson Science Destroyer".

"in addition to upgraded stats, including a 10th console slot."

why are you making us grind..... omg.

Well, I said they'd be Lobi store, but whatever. Called that a while back. And it has a 10th console slot.

Disappointing. Are there any details as to what Q's Minigames actually are this year?

Why do the Shield, Engines and Deflector come in Mk X variants? Didn't we do away with that during S8?
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.
We simply... are.

Wait, why the 15 day grind for something we can buy a better version later anyway? That makes no sense.

So I'll just skip the getting and wait for the c-store version.

That's why. Because you pay money for the other one. This one just costs you time and effort.

In addition, how many playthroughs of the FE are we looking at here? I mean, if it's one suit/set item per playthrough then that's a grand total of six playthroughs to get all the rewards.

This is... somewhat obscene to expect this of the playerbase. Grind, just after another grind, of a REALLY annoying mission if it's like last year's q-games, AND buy a 3-pack?

Who thought this was a good idea?

So grind some horrible mini games and then pay $50 to get it all. Yeah, I'm out too.
