    They better hurry up and put the Keldon on the PC. Or at lest tell us the Date. cause right now i am tempted to rally every Cardassian fan to flood support with tickets about not making a Cardassian Faction. Or at lest Adding the Cardassian Union to the Romulan Republic. Also the Keldon is sopest to have a Romulan Battle Cloak, but that was left out.. i wonder why -_-

    I know the feeling. I've wanted a Keldon for years now. If I had to venture a guess it will be in the next lockbox or they'll throw it in the infinity box. That or just bring that box over to the PC as well. It annoys me as well that we've not heard anything yet, though consoles have been out less than a week so we will probably have something soon enough. Borticus already said it would be coming to PC so it's just a matter of time. hopefully that time isn't several months from now, because that would legitimately be infuriating.

    Far as the cloak goes, have you seen the stats on the Keldon? That's part of why it doesn't have the cloak. Though I'm not going to complain if they want to give us a cloak down the road.

    no, the stats are not part of why the keldon doesn't have a cloak...it doesn't have one because it isn't standard equipment

    it was only those specific keldons that participated in the joint-operation assault against the founder's homeworld that got them from the tal shiar - and it was presumably just a loan at that, because i seriously doubt the tal shiar would've let the obsidian order keep them​​

    The Cardassian love is great. For how much they are represented in DS9, their presence in this game is sparse.

    While I would love a cloaking Obsidian Order Keldon, it was only installed in one episode for one failed mission. It isn't "supposed" to have a cloak.
    When you see "TRIBBLE" in my posts, it's because I manually typed "TRIBBLE" and censored myself.

    Yes, well, so was the Defiant's cloak.

    As a couple of people already mentioned, Borticus cleared this up pretty well in the latest Tribbles in Ecstasy podcast:
    • The Cardassian-Dominion Lock Box IS a console-only release. This should be no surprise, as the console has dozens of lockbox ships to "catch up" on.
    • The T6 Keldon, the T6 JHDC, and the T6 JHHEC are NOT console exclusives. Borticus did not say how the ships would be released, but he stressed that this is ONE GAME with THREE VERSIONS. Yes, it's clear that those three versions won't be talking to each other, but it's also been made quite clear that the three versions will be virtually identical to each other, with the only differences being in the technical limitations of the consoles themselves.

    So, PC players will need to be patient for a time, but cries of "exclusivity!" here are not true.

    Waiting is fine, If we knew how long we need to wait. That is the problem, they don't want to tell us when a Dev could take 5 minutes and get the new ships up for us. so not even offering us a ETA is insulting & rude. Also i should point out that once the Obsidian Order had the cloak, anyone that knows Cardassians knows they woulda copyed the tech regardless of the terms and secretly installed them on all the ships in the Union. thats a fact jack~

    Yes! Because another faction that will receive insufficent attention and content (in the view of those who want one) is a GREAT idea. :|

    We are about due for a new lockbox pretty soon so you never know, everybody just breathe, hold it, count to 10, let it out.rinse and repeat. Nobodys said we wont see these sooner rather than later (of course nobody said we wont see them later either heh ). Just wait n see

    As others have pointed out, we've already said that these T6 ships will be coming to PC as well as to Console. Considering how they're already built out, not bringing them to PC would be a waste.

    @crypticrock yeah didn't think so, but I thought I'd ask anyway. ;-) looking forward to the keldon.

    This is basicly a carrot at the end of stick situation
    We are the donkeys
    I imagine that some manager-accountant-donkeyrider has set out a goal for a viable playerbase for the consoles.
    so run donkey run

    I think we'll either get the next lock box to be either the Dominion 2 True Way Lockbox or a Spherebuilder Lock box. Sphere builder ships have been built and what do they do whenever they make new ship models that aren't usually from the core playable factions? Reminders on some ships that were built that came out in lock boxes later as of recent:

    - Iconian Herald ships
    - Paradox Temporal Dreadnought (Mirror Incursion Lobi ship)
    - Na'khul ships
    - Kelvin Timeline ships

    lets be clear, You might not can, but someone over there Could. for example, the man/woman that makes that choice could get on this forum and just tell us. It sounds like a big deal when it is not. The truth is, No one Wants to let us know. and that irritates me when they just don't come out and say "we want to keep everyone in the dark, its more fun for us that way" =/

    Because if they say anything at all, and plans change, schedules change, people will scream bloody murder for it. So they say nothing until they're ready to release.

    Its for console not PC.
    and thats a bit strange to have different lockboxes for pc and for consoles.

    Not really, say someone with a PC LTS really wants the ship, so they might go and buy a 2nd LTS on console, and Cryptic makes $$$$.

    Can't transfer PC characters to console. So, make a new account. Even non LTS's buy Zen, in this case two accounts spending cash by the same player.​​

    Not gonna happen... at least not by me. I'm happy to stick to my PC.

    Cryptic should realise it's a waste to hold off from releasing them to PC now when there's money to be made from them.
  • ltminnsltminns Member Posts: 12,462 Arc User
    They are really pressing the Consoles this Weekend. 20% off Ships, 15% off Keys, Dilithium Weekend all at once.
