    A few...immoral items here and there (A literal bioweapon for instance), but there's a lot of stuff in this box I'd be interested in using. 10/10.

    A big thank you to the devs for Holographic Mirage Decoys & Covert Minelayer Suite. The tweaks to mines over the past year have been amazing and it’s so great to have all this fun new stuff to use.

    I like the Fed ship's look. KDF is not my style. I know it's all DSC stuff... but when the first sentence mentions the Tal Shiar, it really adds focus to there not being a Romulan ship. :( But there is a Klingon 'spy' ship. :o A Romulan ship in the C-Store of the same 'flavor' would really be a nice addendum to this.

    A very interesting lock box overall. I will look through most stuff there. Just a little bit sad to see that we get even more phasers yet again. Other than that the lock box looks like it will be a fun one to get.

    important question: does the flanking console stack with raider flanking and intel flanking?

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

    I did not think I'd be interested in S31 stuff, but I quite like that ship. It's got a certain birdlike flair that would be good for a Romulan.

    Has a new lockbox ever been released before without a new lobi store ship being released at the same time? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is the first time that's happened.

    I always hope there is something that will improve my current build or allow for a better build in the new lockboxes.

    Sadly that is not the case. On the positive side I will not need to spend anything.

    Did notice the lack of a Lobi ship...
    Then again I don't think they had any options for Lobi.
    Word is though that we are also getting the Black Badges in the Lobi store.

    Might pick up that drone for my Drone Master. And that pistol for my collection.

    Actually, this is the second time now. The Emperor's Lockbox did not have a lobi store ship.

    While the Covert Minelayer Suite looks really good the ‘creep’ functionality might be pointless due to the disappearing mine bug.
    See bug report https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/startrekonline/#/discussion/1247853/major-mine-launcher-bug-zero-damage-after-5-minutes-due-to-despawn-bug

    And video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT-FbsTPU2M&feature=youtu.be any chance of this long standing bug being fixed so that we can make use of the Creep function?

    (Trolling comments moderated out. - BMR)

    wishlist this time is pretty short
    Space: Threat Assessment Algorithms
    Space: Holographic Mirage Decoys
    Covert Assault Drone
    maybe the Computer-Assisted Flight Algorithms
    maybe the ships tho probably not... I dont do escorts well and the cleave ship... well if they managed to make the ram functional that could be a fun change in play style

    They changed the virus from being biological to a computer virus. I'm fine with not using bioweapons, so thanks.

    Yeah, I'm getting a feeling that new (not T6 Upgrades) Lobi Ships may be a thing of the past. Not enough of a price point. Lockbox or Promotion Ships and non-Fleet grade C-Store Ships.

    Lobi Store may be relegated for T6 replacements for now.

    For a lot of folk lobi prices were too high to justify a per character ship purchase. What was meant to be a consolation prize for boxes padded with trash like R&D mats turned into a stupidly high premium currency.

    Fed ship looks like the designer went for HB pencil and ruler philosophy, chunky boxy and pretty damn ugly.

    If that Klingon ship and its trait are even half as cool as it sounds this may very well be the first Klingon lockbox ship I absolutely have to get.

    The black badge and the kit modules look awesome and sound really fun too. Can't wait to trap some enemies in a big bubble.

    As much as I usually dread new lockboxes this one has a lot of neat stuff.

    Now if we can only (one day) get Leland's rifles and Georgiou's uniform from season 2 it'll be truly perfect.

    I will pass. Server connections have been so poor I barely complete endeavors as I am so tired of warping and rubber banding into things. Not too sure I will be playing in the future since it adds frustration instead of enjoyment.

    So, what will the lockbox be called when/if the Section 31 show airs (makes me wonder since the 'captain' of the show took off to the future with Discovery)?

    I'm thinking its more due to the lack of real cross faction capable stuff that is Discovery related. Come next lockbox I predict we'll see a new Lobi ship as by then we'll most likely have worked through the stockpiled Discovery resources.

    Does STO have a contingency plan in case the lootbox bill makes any progress? Will the game survive a forced change? I cant in my right mind spend any more money on this game when it could just shut down instead of reworking the lootbox system.

    Thats on your isp, not the game servers. I play daily and have no such issues.

    That incorrect. I have investigated this several times in the past. Its realty caused at cryptic side. Its visible when pinging the server.

    As EU player I can confirm frequent rubber banding etc.

    just something I noticed, Does the S31 ship (NCIA-93) not have the holographic cloak meaning to get that you have to use one time use items ?
  • baddmoonrizinbaddmoonrizin Member Posts: 7,765 Community Moderator
    Ok, everyone who is NOT talking about the lockbox is derailing the thread. Take your arguments elsewhere.

    I hope the Klingon ship console and trait are accessible with a aligned fed characters. Also I'm curious what this interstellar torpedo is will it be a blank kinetic torpedo or fire from one of your torp launchers.

    She will be back in the 23rd century by the end of season 3 of Discovery.

    Super easy!
    Barely an inconvenience!
