    Very nice & innovative sale that is definitely different from the norm.

    "It's our first ever Flash Sale! From 10am-6pm today!"

    Now to check things out & see what is tempting!

    Not sure about this, but if the T5 ships included the free Upgrade Tokens like they do for some other sales that would've been above & beyond.

    Very nice but you caught me at a bad time where the coffers are empty. Would have liked to have picked up the kdf pilot and sci ship packs. Oh well next time

    For me that was the last one. One cross faction pack down.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Temporal Anomalies have opened a whole to an alternate universe, one with a fantastic sale, Captains. But this Flash Sale will only be available for a limited time – from 10am-6pm PST today only, on all three platforms. Hurry and grab yourself some items at a one of our largest discounts ever, before the portal shuts and it’s all lost.

    Oh, honey...it's "hole" not "whole"... Really?

    Good catch.

    I already gave-in a bit ago & bought the Deep Space Nine Pack. I didn't need it, but I splurged & now to go back & see if anything else looks too tempting.

    Why make a flash sale only for the hours in the day most are at work or in transit from? Couldn't it have gone through the evening so we could have actually had a chance at it? Poorly executed on something I would have have happily spent on.

    Yeah, I saw the flash sale blurb, and didn't read it carefully, since I was at work. By the time I got home and logged on, it was done.

    Feels like someone missed that this sale would only be on during a period most people either have work and/or school.

    Pretty much! I guess the rest of us will have to hope for a decent Labor/Labour Day sale.

    I was debating whether or not to pull the trigger on the Temporal Special Agent Pack, but between already having some of the items (Ranger, Paladin, 31st century ships, medical and command tunics) and not knowing if the 0718 BOFF is character or account unlock, I hesitated and missed out.

    I did, however, pull the trigger on something I've been eyeing for some time... The Command Battlecruiser Mega Bundle. They are mine. Oh yes, they are ALL mine now.
    Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    I would have bought a couple of packs, but since I don't live in the right region...

    I worked from 9am to 6pm, good thing for the time zone difference or I'd have been screwed out of this sale. You guys have something against people that work?

    I notice we get more Ships and Sales Pitches than Content, Bug Fixes, or Balancing. The Pve Queues are slow, PvP is dead (Thank You for not fixing the PvP Scoreboard or giving us Competetive Marks for playing Pvp since Season 13 launched). We have to wait an entire year for a Dominion Faction that will probably be no more of an improvement than the half assed Romulan Faction addition which turned out not to really be a new "faction" at all.

    You guys can't be bothered to update and streamline Foundry Functionality and yet we are made to wait 6 months for only 10 additional missions in one puny story arc.(Yes. I'm looking at you Agents of Yesterday). But along the way to 2018 I suspect Cryptic will continue to become more and more aggressive with encouraging us to spend money while distracting us with more useless bridge packs and one time only grab bag anomalies. I hope Microsoft is given the option to buy this IP.

    While Bioware and Dice are amping up all cylinders in their games with Hype Flowing from the Success of Rogue One and Episode VII..... we have this money grubbing game with Negative Hype Flowing from the assumed Failure soon to be released from behind..... nope. Not a Cryptic Paywall...... But a CBS one.... Star Trek Discovery. Anyone see the pattern? Premium Purchase for Subpar merchandise? Yah. Time to find another game to play. Its obvious this development team doesn't have the player base's well being in mind as a whole.

    Let no other Captain discourage you from what you believe you can achieve in PvP. Debuffs and Disables be damned! Charge up your Backstep and Forge your build out of Lock Boxes, Consoles, and Flash Sales feeding off of only your pure will to chain, spam, and hax your way forward. You will not be forgotten to history.

    Great idea, but you might have garnered more profits had you not run the sale while consumers in the Pacific Time Zone were at work. Just sayin'...
  • sirdraknosirdrakno Member Posts: 19 Arc User
    Yes, it would have been nice if the sale was during non-working hours, but they are lazy and just through things out there. I'll go watch a move and grab a drink for everyone who had to work. This one is for you real workers. :)
  • locutusofcactuslocutusofcactus Member Posts: 650 Arc User
    No one wants to see that they missed out on something because they were at work. Hopefully the last flash sale. Cover the children's eyes or a conversation like below might happen:

    "Daddy, there's a sale! Can we gets stuff?"
    "No tiny Tim, the sale ended before the breadwinner was able to come home from their job."
    "But daddy, you had the day off."
    "I know. Mom should be home anytime now."


    I was going to not buy anything to discourage future flash sales for the sake of those who have jobs at normal hours. Instead, I proceeded to buy it all.

    This game is played around the world. "Most" are certainly not working during these times.

    Which just makes the idea of the flash sale even more ridiculous. Most people are either going to be asleep, at work/school/etc, or going between them in an 8 hour period. Either way, the majority are not going to be checking STO in an 8 hour block.
  • gonaliusgonalius Member Posts: 892 Arc User
    ... Missed it. A shame, as I have nearly 25,000 Zen sitting in my account waiting and would have almost certainly splashed out on something. Ahh well.
  • drdrahcirdrdrahcir Member Posts: 23 Arc User
    Bloody Unfair!! Typical US bent to arc promo´s .. never taking the rest of the world into consideration! Its obvious that NO ONE in the ARC office can tell time outside of PST Local .. you only have to look at the REPEATED time mistakes made on updates, UTC Don´t make me laugh!

    I work third shift. I get up, got to work, come home and find out that I missed the 8 hour sale while I was at work. Thanks guys, you'll never get another dime from me.
