    More disappointing if the dropchance is like 0.6%

    I just hate that the first RR full carrier is locked behind a lockbox...

    I've long since given up on Lockboxes in general. I'll probably snag a few of them just to get the weapons, but nothing more. I've got all the t6 ships I need and while it's TRIBBLE for Cryptic to release the first good BoP in a long, long time behind a lockbox; I shouldn't expect any better from this company.

    yeah... I don't want to get worked up about it. I just bought the temporal pack and typically this sort of thing happens. Cryptic does a good thing that makes me happy and then makes a concept that does the opposite and drives me to play a completely different game.

    no surprise here.
    but, really disappointed to see the new clothes and the weapons in this box. why they do not put the clothes and the weapons (ground weapons) in the c-store and bound to character. only for these items, I would open my wallet (again), but no way to gamble or pay a ridiculous price from the exchange.

    I was holding off on the pack until I knew for sure what was officially happening with these ships.

    At least it saves me that money now, so silver lining and all that..

    This is going to be glorious.
    Both the market, the tears, the Kelvin ships and uniforms everywhere and the forums.

    Also, I feel like I'm gonna cancel meat and replace it for noodles and bread for the month. XD

    I heard the drop rate was 0.002 per agreement for this one time promotion with Paramount.

    I can't F#@K#IG believe it. The Vengence is a Lobi store ship. For the first time in 4 years I will be buy 4 of the same Lobi ship. My hats off to Cryptic for doing this. They could have easily put it in a doff pack and made the drop chance .001% and I would have still tryed to get 4 of them. The entire time I have played STO I don't think I have ever been so happy.

    WHHHHHYYYYYYYYY.... why did you guys have to put those in lockboxes. I want everything for all my toons.. I hate the fact that lockbox items are only character bound. This is a nightmare for those that have many multiple characters.

    funny thing is this lock box is shocking fair by cryptic standards. dependng on just how much the kelvin dreadnought package is it may actually be fair... though it looks like we know were all the kdf and rom stuff for AoY went... not happy about that but oh well.

    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.

    Norway and Yeager dammit... I still want my Typhoon and Jupiter though.
    JJ Trek The Kelvin Timeline is just Trek and it's fully canon... get over it. But I still prefer TAR.

    The Kelvin is Fugly...but the Vengeance does pass. The box not bad except for the main prize ship. IMO it's an upside down world prize tiger-2.gif​​

    Oh, I didn't buy the pack for those ships. I'm actually happy with the Temporal pack ships. I'm just saying that had I not bought it, the lockbox probably would have disgusted me enough to invest in another game as I've done in the past.

    Why do folks always feel the need to revamp the look of characters... granted the original klingons look a bit fu-man-chu-ish with the mustaches and beards... well we can always go with that these are the original klingons before the augment disaster and then once they got cured... they look like the ones from movie 2 onwards... haha

    One thing they did right tho i am glad the vengeance is lobi and not epic rare like the vonph/acheros.. makes its badassery more accessible

    Anyone who didn't think these would be a lockbox was delusional to begin with. They fit all the criteria as set down by Cryptic and CBS.

    The ability to purchase and fly the Kelvin Timeline Intel Dreadnought Cruiser [T6] will be restricted only to Federation characters. However, Klingon and Romulan captains will instead be offered the ability to purchase a Kelvin Dreadnought Package from the Lobi Store which includes both the Console and the Starship Trait unlock for a lower price than that of the full starship.

    Not that I would buy one anyway, but really?
