    I was super excited after seeing the glimpses of the ships coming, but after reading all the once per account items which have no reason not to be, especially since things have been changing to account wide across the game this pack has gone from a must buy to a never buy. I'm not going to sit picking and choosing which captains I'm going to have these items on, only to have to fork out over and over again for others. Grossly disappointed.

    I love that kdf is finally getting another bird of prey but I hope there is some kind of options because it looks horrible. It's not cryptic's fault its just that is what it looks like on discovery. I don't mind the way the other one looks but geeze they should call that one a turtle of prey.

    I'm glad it's not just me being picky, reading these responses. The BOFFs and combat tardigrade being one character instead of account wide is no good. Especially for the cost of the overall package. And I also agree that there's nothing mentioned for a discount and/or compensation for those who already have the Discovery Starter Pack. That's a good way to keep people from buying starter packs, etc. in the future.
    Although it's pricey for me I was very interested in this pack. But after reading the restrictions and all I'll probably end up going without if it doesn't change.

    I regret to do this but this needs to stop , one of the main reasons the server population has gone to the state it has is because of this . I advise you inform cryptic that this sort of micro transaction is just not up to packs of say 5 years ago .And it will cost you money in the long run ,so best before it hits ,advise they change the packs terms or at least throw in a something for the other factions . you have yet to even add a life time sub veteran vessel for the gamma faction . it just screams laziness to me

    No thanks. Once per account BOFFs is genuinely stupid and disrespectful.

    I like most of the things in the pack, but there's not enough ships in there for me to justify 12k Zen on them. :/

    To add my voice to the chorus, yes the pack is too much. I will buy the items I want individually.

    This is pretty much the first time a new anniversary pack doesn't at all interest me.
    We did not come here to tell people what and what not to believe in, everyone awakens at their own pace and way.

    Love is what truly matters.

    I was waiting for a new T6 BoP, too. Why they don't give a modernized version is beyond me. I like the Walker skin, but they're going to discover that my wallet won't open to purchase the bundle at this price. The one time use boffs and combat pet are curious. I thought they said they were working towards making unlock account wide unlocks for C-Store items.

    All I really see in the pack that I want is that away team vest, is there a simple way to get just that?
    I think it should be added to the existing DSC uniform package. And yes, certain items being 'one per account' as opposed to 'one per character' is a thing for which an explanation would be wise.

    Is there a discount (either before or after the 30% above) for those of us that already bought the AoD Starter Pack that is now included in this set?

    You can find/contact me in game as @PatricianVetinari. Playing STO since Feb 2010.

    All of these ships will also have fleet versions available

    So they are weaker then the ships in the regular mega bundles.
    I won't buy.

    Once per Account would be ok, when you can transfer the Items. Pre 2015 you had to give your Boff to friends to train them. Using this, you could Transfer Boff from 1 Char to another. Would be a good feature for Account Bank.

    No, it would not mean dropping TNG, DS9 and VOY at all, the games timeline is specifically set after VOY.

    Well, thanks for the launch sale, it is pretty generous. But unless the BOff's and combat pet are made to be account unlocks, still no sale.

    That’s still too much for what it is, either change the price or improve the quality of the product.

    Keep chopping. 8400 for 4 & 2/3rds ships isn't a particularly impressive bundle.

    Gamma large bundle at the 13000 Zen introductory price had 7 Tier 6 and 3 Tier 5-U ships, with all of them fleet grade. That's 10 end game ready ships, just dividing into those comes to 1300 Zen each, before factoring in the extra bundled. So, 2100 per end game ship seems a comparatively poor deal, and I don't think the 10 Master Keys sweetens the deal to be remotely close.

    We wanted a mega bundle of ships, not something priced like one with little in it.

    I would say 6000 is an appropriate price (if they make the once per account unlocks, once per character instead).
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,011 Arc User
    wait till the next bundle sale for 35% off or the, once in blue moon 50% off sale for packs if your really interested... BO and pet is once per account... totally fubar there. Once per character should be the norm for those. worse bundle evar. But I guess that matches with the show.

    While this is a nice gesture and "kinda" tackles the overpriced issue, I still won't be getting this pack unless the Boffs and Combat Pet are made "Account Wide"!! Delta Pack, Account Wide Boffs, Temporal Pack, Account Wide Boffs, Gamma Pack, Account Wide Boffs, Just sayin!!

    Just not seeing a lot of value here, especially if you already bought the Discovery Starter Pack. Maybe if you regularly play both feds and klinks or are new to the game, but with them only being 10 console ships (even if you already have some FSMs from T6 Reps), if you only play one or the other like most people do, the math just doesn't work for me, even at 8400 Zen.

    I mean, for a one-faction player that's 6k worth of ships, a single costume (550 zen), a single use BOFF (they charge 500 for them, but barely anyone bites), a ground combat pet (400), and a starter ship and misc upgrades that are basically useless to someone who is already level 65. That's 7,450...

    Not good enough

    The Gamma bundle had way more and 3 BO that were per character lol come on now this is a joke

    it's not like Discovery doesn't have ships, hell the Romulan bundle had more and Cryptic had to make up a few of them from scratch cause canon Romulans don't have many ships but Disco has a lot so i don't get whats going on here

    One of the main differences between this pack and AoY is that it has ships for the Klingon characters, while the AoY was devoid of that.

    I hope that there will be AoY packs for Klingons and Romulan characters, that would include the TOS variants shown in AoY's tutorial mission, as well as 26th Century versions of the KDF and Romulan Republic ships).

    It would be worth it to have those ship packs for the KDF and Romulan Republic, even if there wasn't an expansion to the AoY expansion to show how Klingon and Romulan characters becoming (AoY style) Temporal Agents.

    I wish that Nimitz/Europa-class Heavy Battlecruiser was held back for the Discovery Operations Pack, with a Klingon ship (I don't know if the ram-prow ship would be it's equivalent or something else would be. That way there would have been a better reason to get this pack. (That and account-wide unlock for the BOffs).

    Unfortunately, I had already bought the Starter Pack (I should have known better to hold off on it, considering it was a 'starter pack') and the Nimitz/Europa-class, but having another Klingon ship (even if the KDF ships of Discovery leave much to be desired) would help offset this.

    Having a combat pet is something different from the other full packs. I don't even remember just non-combat pets included in earlier packs, so that's something to be considered in the price of the bundle.

    That's still $84 bucks. You better hope your loyal whales are willing to make this worth being viewed as unscrupulous and greedy to the rest of the playerbase. Because that's exactly what the optics are, and that isn't good.​​

    Well, I know that non-feds have been getting ripped off by these packs since the LOR pack, but I don't think ripping off players on both sides is the way we saw them going with it next. :neutral:
