    I'm really not sure right now. If they offer a discount for Starter Pack owners or if they make the new boffs account unlocks I'm probably gonna buy it. (I really like the new Walker skin) If not, I'm getting the two Fed ships and that's it. It would be the first "expansion" pack I wouldn't buy.

    May get it if the mood takes me and I have zen with nothing else appealing to me. I like scaling ships after using the walker class to level one toon and the T;pau to do another this weekend. While I can see some of the boff unlocks being once per account would put some off I personally have so many claimable in store these dont worry me so much.

    Still waiting to be able to use forum titles

    Maybe. I have piles and stacks and fleets of FedShips already and am only a lukewarm Discovery watcher. I have fewer KDF ships but still more than my 4 KDF captains can fly. Maybe I'll get the KDF Miracle Worker ship since I don't have any other MW ships. Or not.

    I bought the Europa because I liked the ship, so my Discovery captain is already set. He'll be the pirate twins again.

    I'm not willing to spend money on it. It's stupid easy enough to get exp in the game, and not hard at all to make money for keys, if I wanted keys. Nothing from the pack interests me.

    depends on if the things i want in the pack are old separately

    It would cost only half the pack's price to buy separately the two ships I'll be allowed to use on my main. The clothes I expect will be fedlocked again like everything Disco related, so no point buying those. The starter pack I already have. And the rest is just filler.

    So not likely.

    For the right price I'd buy it. At 12k Zen, that isn't close to the right price, for me.

    Even with the 30% off sale when it first hits, making it 8400 Zen, that isn't enough incentive to get it either. A starting price around 7500 Zen (with the BOff's/pet made account wide), then the 30% off sale on top of that, I would buy it. Day one. If for some reason I was unable to get into the game while that sale was going, at 7500 Zen I would still buy it eventually, but I'd likely just save up my stipend for it.

    Obviously, if they add more to the pack, the value would increase so my starting price would go up as well. Unless there were at least 2 more ships added to both Fed and KDF, 12k Zen is just simply too much. Shoot, the way the pack is now with the 1 per account BOff's and pet, they could make it 1 Zen I wouldn't get it as it would just encourage them to make more things single character unlocks in the future.

    What happened to "The account is the player" mentality that was going around not too long ago?

    Probably not. Nothing in the pack excites me visually. Cryptic have done a good job releasing my absolute favorite ships over the last 2 years so there isn't really anything that I want that isn't already available in game. Visually speaking.

    I've purchased 7 or 8 various packages/bundles in the past 18 months, however the value proposition just isn't there for this one. No Romulan ships, re-issuing the Starter pack items (which I already bought), once-per-account items, keys which I'm inclined to buy in Key ring bundles not major packs... it's all over the place and yet never manages to make it out the front door, as far as my preferences are concerned.

    Other. No I will not buy the pack, but I will buy the individual items I want.

    No....because I already have the starter pack and the only ship I may be interested in is one of the cruisers....the trait sounds like it could be interesting.

    No, I am not dumb enough to buy something other packs of the same price gave me more of

    I won't, just because there is nothing in it that interests me.

    Hell would need to show up on earth and freeze over before I buy this pack.

    Absolutely not.

    Over priced garbage.


    And no, it's not a Discovery thing. I love Discovery.. LOVE IT.. I just know a rip off when I see one.

    You have seen the description of the new Discovery Operations pack and the stats.

    Will you buy it? This is just an honest poll and intent is to see how many of us are willing to spend money for it or not?

    I voted OTHER...

    I will not buy anything Discovery related. I started watching it on Amazon. After the first few episodes, I stopped and I have had zero interest in continuing. It simply is not the Star Trek I grew up with. And the new Star Trek I would want, would need to CONTINUE the Star Trek I grew up with. No more prequels that try to reboot it.

    So what would I buy? Actual gameplay content. Not new ships to run old content with. Not new uniforms to wear while running old content. I would also buy access to an exploration system that procedurally generates new sector blocks complete with star and planetary systems that persist on the server for anyone to visit. So in short, I will buy anything that adds PLAYABLE SUBSTANCE to the game, which is exactly what Cryptic has STUPIDLY declared they will neve charge for. So they do not want my money. I will not spend it on fluff.
    I have no snarky remarks to make, at this time...
  • jaguarskxjaguarskx Member Posts: 5,942 Arc User
    Not really interested.

    Actually, I'm taking a break from buying anymore ships for now since I still have many T6 ships that I have purchased in the past and have never commanded yet. I'll wait more Romulan ships to appear in the C-Store...
  • kiralynkiralyn Member Posts: 1,111 Arc User
    No, but not because of Discovery or particular stats.

    I've never bought any of the big "packs", and never will. Largest single thing I've ever purchased was a cross-faction trio of ships. Everything else I get is individual things/services/upgrades.
  • firstaid#5667 firstaid Member Posts: 66 Arc User
    No. If there were some science vessels included in the pack, I might have been tempted.
  • katanahiryukatanahiryu Member Posts: 130 Arc User
    I thought the walker class was a t6 variant, but its just a resell with a skin. Back to ignoring my disco character cause there are no good disco t5-t6 ships I want to fly.

  • liontriadliontriad Member Posts: 31 Arc User
    Despite the scaling of the ships in the pack, I would only buy it if it had at least a couple of more ships and more account unlock items. otherwise I'd just buy the gagarin and shran seperately.
  • theboxisredtheboxisred Member Posts: 243 Arc User
    I voted other.

    Not because of my dislike for ST:D, either. Indeed, it is because there are some things that interfere with game play that I do not see being addressed. UI lag, the fact that I get disconnected several times per day (all other online activity on my part goes off without a hitch), the strange frequency of pop-up dialog interrupting combat, getting a leaver penalty when a bug occurs in a TFO that cannot be otherwise worked around...

    Even though much of what Cryptic has been doing has met with my approval, indeed it was Cryptic that made the JJ Verse (yes, that is it's name) ships visually appealing. How did they do that? I swear it's witchcraft! In the films they look like trash, but in STO they actually look pretty good! Indeed, the same can be said for many of the ST:D ships, though that Bird of Prey variant is trash and will never look right to me.

    In spite of all that, I know that PWE is in charge of the purse strings and thus ultimately responsible for some in-game issues not being resolved. It seems to me that throwing real money at this time would be rewarding PWE's bad behavior. It sucks that it has to impact Cryptic at the same time.

    Speaking of FLEET Tier 6 Pilot Escorts, when can I get a Mercury class Fleet Tier 6?

    This right here. One of the reasons why I am enjoying Dungeons&Dragons Online more as of late. If I find additional content I want, I'll buy the quest packs. Or I'll use pylons to make DDO points to buy them. They're optional, but they do add to the game in the form of areas to explore, quests to run, raids, favor, and items. Luckily, I have so many quest packs to still buy, that I have goals to look forward to. With STO, it's mostly gaining resources, refining resources to throw into something, and sitting on my fourth point of contact while waiting for the Chinese Water Torture dripping of episodes to come out. STO can only go so far on their gamblebox and ship bundle crutches.
