    Nice, I'm glad I didn't buy when I acquired Zen other day...waiting a bit paid off, here I though I would be waiting a month or 2 for next ship sale. Sadly already bought some bank/inventory slots on character so missed some on service sale. Oh well. lol.

    Well, it's official.

    Between over stocking us with Phoenix Kits, delaying upgrade weekends and now the careful timing of the ship sale it's clear that Cryptic believes that too many sales are going to Dilithium trade. They are now obviously keeping the exchange rate as high as possible so people have to use cash. I had a feeling that they would do this eventually, but it's a shame.

    Upgrade Weekend was the only chance we had to nudge the exchange rate down a bit. Even that though was going to be highly limited since they ran 2 Phoenix Box events so no one is using Dilithium. The ship sale just make sure that the exchange rate goes up not down.

    Looks like the F2P model is going to get a lot more grindy.

    Since starting to play STO I've seen the Dil:Zen exchange rate swing from 400:1 to 180:1, so the current rate of 285/290:1 is well within the historical moves. In 2017 we were running with a rate of 320:1, with the same Zen sales, key sales, Pbox Events and upgrade weekends. The price is what the market will bear. The solution is simple: if the Dil:Zen ratio is not in your favour don't sell/buy.

    Yeah the Phoenix Prize Pack this time around made little to zero impact on overall market. The only reason I see continuing getting the Phoenix Prize Pack is because of the upgrade tokens if you fail or have gotten everything else below the Epic and UR items. Getting an Epic and UR is just so ludicrously low.
    Just to give you an example if we go with the 2 for 1 downgrade conversion in the pack now, then the odd should be around

    Epic 1.59%
    Ultra Rare 3.17%
    Very Rare 6.35%
    Rare 12.70%
    Uncommon 25.40%
    Common 50.79%

    However it looks like odds are much lower. Epic seems to be around 0.25% and Ultra Rare is around 0.5% (this is based upon post I have seen where people have opened up a few hundred box and only gotten 1 Epic and may two Ultra Rare.)

    Maybe if the Epic and Ultra Rare items were account unlocks there might be more interest, I don’t know. The other option might be to allow for 1:3 token upgrade. This would give about the same odds as getting an epic or 364 common to 1 epic.

    You need those tokens to up rarity chances or Omegas.

    (Still thinking...Vor'ral or no Vor'ral....do I really want to try a battle cruiser, and is this the one I wanna try...and do I want to try it right now?)
