    Doesn't do anything for me the T'Liss I'd say the D'Deridex is far more iconic and worthy of a legendary release than the T'Liss.

    Hello rubber banding my old friend, time to bounce around the battlezone again, where are all my bug reports going?, out of love with this game I am falling, As Cryptic fail to acknowledge a problem exists, Shakes an angry fist, And from Support all I'm hearing are the sounds of silence.

    "The Legendary Light Intel Warbird [T6] is a powerful, timeless ship, featuring devastatingly powerful plasma projectiles, unparalleled combat cloaking systems, and a variety of tricks to teach to any new captain.."

    You guys do know that its most recent appearance had it lose to a smaller slightly-modified freighter (whose captain considered the ship itself wasn't the danger but the planet-wide security defense system was) and a one-person fighter, right? And just from having a wing sliced off by the "sheer power" of two phaser beams?

    Also:
    This immense bundle will be available for the price of 12,000 Zen, with a special introductory offer of 50% OFF until Jube 15th! This offer will release on the following dates:

    PC: June 18th, 2020
    Xbox One and PlayStation 4: July 16th, 2020
    Emphasis on the dates. (EDIT: that just got fixed from "Jube 15th" to "June 22nd", still leaving the console players with the full excessive price)

    Wow... the contents of this bundle are very underwhelming. Mk XIV very rare gear? 1m EC? Enhanced tech upgrades? Absolutely nothing unique, not a single item that can't be found elsewhere.... I'm disappointed.

    No.

    D'deridex is seen in nearly every romulan encounter in TNG, Voyager and DS9 with much higher frequency and more importance placed on them than this... 'T'Liss'.

    Can't they cater for the main generation of star trek lovers? Obviously not in this case.

    Not even tempted by it, this 'immense bundle' is an immense disappointment for many fans. Yet again, they missed a trick that will not yield very many sales.

    Not going to lie - I am disappointed with the ship.

    I was hoping for a T'Liss that was comparable to the D7 and Disco Connie - MW Flight Deck Carrier.

    I would have liked to have seen a four pack get the "Legendary" treatment - T'Liss, D'Deridex, Mogai, and Scimitar.

    For one, it's a Light Warbird, which means its a smaller ship, so it would never be a carrier. If anything, it would probably be more comparable to the Defiant.

    More importantly: That uniform the Romulan is wearing in the picture. Is it in the game? Will we get that uniform?

    Agreed - this is one of the things that means 'no sale' for me. Silly really as a few changes might have made it viable. I mean, looking at what is on offer:
    -1,000,000 Energy Credits - pretty worthless to be honest. Can't buy much of anything very useful for that
    - 5x Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrades (no Dilithium cost to apply) - for the price of this pack Ultimate upgrades would've been a FAR better choice and would have made the pack more appealing. These things probably won't even take a single item to XV, let alone increase the quality.
    - A FULL SUITE of Very Rare (Purple) Mk XIV Ground Equipment and Space Equipment - would it really have hurt to make these items either level XV Very Rare, or XII Ultra rare? Those useless Enhanced upgrades are not going to have any impact on even ONE of these items

    The remainder of what is on offer, whilst not useless per-se, is mediocre. I personally don't feel that this pack holds any appeal to anyone NOT looking to insta-Admiral a new character.

    That only leaves the ship as the only selling point for someone like myself - and the ship is...... good, but definitely not '6k Zen' good.

    I've been trying to decide whether to buy this or not myself, and ultimately I have to agree. The T'liss may have been the original Romulan ship, but it was never impressive (especially not in Picard.) The D'deridex gave Romulans a very imposing, impressive presence and a unique look. It made them a real credible antagonist and a mysterious civilization with their unique, and in some ways more advanced technology than the Federation.

    I have a captain that flies the Malem, and its a fun ship, but it doesn't have any of the presence or feel that the D'deridex has.

    If this was a D'deridex, it would have been an automatic buy for me, but the T'liss, I'm going to have to pass.

    If the new trait does trigger a cooldown on THY, then it is worthless, making the bundle worthless.

    So far I don't think this bundle is worth it especially for a trait but excellent point about whether that starship mechanic cools-down the regular high-yield 3 or not! I don't know all the items included yet but it doesn't look promising to me so probably not going to buy.

    I watch that 10FW live-stream & at some point that Jeremy insinuates that if enough players buy this they'll consider future Legendary bundles. So we as consumers are in a hostage negotiation with that Jeremy lol.

    That is what I was afraid of Cryptic doing after the Fed Legendary bundle. Cryptic will offer more a la carte boutique bundles offering less content for more cost. Not as much quantity for sure as the Fed bundle but since starving for a particular product Cryptic will deliver lesser quality/quantity & charge more for it. Then even if/when it sells well since Cryptic won't show sales they can fall-back on not doing anymore Romulan Legendary bundles or any future KDF Legendary bundle regardless.

    It made sense about what that Jeremy or Thomas said about not doing a KDF Legendary, yet???, since this Year of the Klingon isn't complete yet.

    I found it laughable again that they were hyping-up the boost to level 65 as a big deal. They've offered boosts to level 60 tokens before anyways so despite their claim there's a lot to do "under the hood" it isn't a big deal & seems more like fluff & it wasn't sounding like from their chatter that the items will be Epic Mk XVs neither.

    I did like Kael's wink around the 40 min mark lol hopefully many players that didn't get the opportunity or skipped it will have another chance of some sort.

    STO has NEVER offered any kind of boost straight to level 60+ before. What you might be thinking of is XP boosts, which are not the same thing.

    What this boost will do is set the romulan character to level 65, no matter what level they are, so in theory, you could set it on any leveled character and just get the items.

    My mistake, I had to check my brother's account since he had never used his & I had used mine long ago. It was only level 50 to 60.

    I still don't see a lot of value in a 1 to 65 level boost since pretty easy to level-up but to each their own. Nor am I finding the

    $120?!? That's insane! They're obviously only expecting people to buy it while it's on sale, but what sense does that make? This pack is for players who don't play too often, or are new and wan't to skip the grind, and obviously the whales that need EVERYTHING. The last group is going to buy it immediately, but money can still be made from the first two. But what are the chances that those people are going to actually be online during the sale and actually know about it? This pack should be MAX $60 all the time to match similar lvl boosts in other games.

    So sad to see that after 10 successful years STO must stoop to selling rank to make a buck.
  • duasynduasyn Member Posts: 481 Arc User
    I already have a max level Romulan (and don't need another) and bought the LoR pack way back when; so $60 ($120!) for a single ship isn't a bargain to me. And Cryptic why give Purple Mk 14 stuff? Just make it Mk 15 or at least make it UR Mk 14. And I bet the Boffs aren't all SROs. Calling it Legendary but you're just that one step away from actually making it legendary.

    If a newer player just happened to love Romulans and the T'liss then its a good deal. (Been playing with my T'liss recently cause shooting that massive plasma ball is just fun to do.) But really not much to excite existing/old players with this offering.
  • schloopdooschloopdoo Member Posts: 373 Arc User
    Does the T'liss have more knock-off copy variants (all sold seperately) than the Constitution class cruiser at this point?

    When the Year of the Klingon finally starts, some time in November, I have a real safe feeling guessing that their Legendary ship will be just another B'rel Bird of Prey.

    What happened to this game?
  • shadowmane20001shadowmane20001 Member Posts: 63 Arc User
    Yeeeeah

    60 dollars for one ship and one character boost? And the ship is effectively a 30 dollar ship? + 30 dollars for one char to level 60? Nope.

    Sorry I think I am fine with never owning this ship. If you threw in a legendary D'Deridex at 60 it would be worth it. But at 12k once the sale expires.... No... no thank you. If I have to choose between THIs and a KDF bundle I would go KDF IF... IF I choose to spend 60 at all.

    I hope Cryptic will read these, post pone this pack and improve it with a couple more ships.

    I'll get it. Always love a T'Liss. :)

    Nothing for YOK has actually been released though, has it? I'm guessing their internal view of when it starts will be when it's content begins going live.

    Cryptic has previously stated the J'Ula plot is going to end at or around the anniversary. So it wouldn't even be close to a year if it only comes out in November. Year of the Klingon = a year of Klingon content, and they had obviously started working on said content before it was announced in late April. So, by the time the Anniversary comes out next February it would have been about a year's worth of Klingon content made.

    Now Covid has certainly slowed things down a bit, so it will probably continue past the Anniversary now, but still. The next release should have come out last month, going by the track record Cryptic has been following for awhile now. So we are 1 month behind right now. So projected end date for YotK is March 2020.

    I mean, we have already seen that they have revamped
    • Hairs
    • Faces
    • Skin tints
    • Uniforms
    • NPCs like J'mpok, and Kagran
    • Ships like the B'rel and K't'inga
    • The ship bridge, and interior(at least in missions)
    • Maps like Khitomer, Qo'Nos, and Rura Penthe
    • The tutorial
    And we know many of these new textures for maps are getting applied to older maps, even if those older maps aren't going to be seeing any other changes. That most of what I would expect them to be updating right there.

    What if they bump the time in the game forward a year during that time? :P I don't believe anyone said it would be an actual year.

    Yeah, IDK about all that. But I refer back to my previous question: Has any of their YOK actually gone live yet? I'm asking because I don't know.

    Sorry, I have rarely chimed in in recent years, and feel a need for this one...

    A singular romulan ship that as clearly as shown here, isn't that high in regards for a legendary make over....and a 65 boost that isn't worth spit to most players as well....this is a horrible bargain on all levels...Now then if it were to be this>

    Legendary Pilot T'liss, Legendary Miracle Worker D'Deridex, Legendary Intel Mogai… at least 3 ships, considering we received how many for fed at 200$ if you bought in the introductory pricing...

    I would think, these 3 ships above, and the level 65 character, for 100 even, would have seen multiple people say, "shut up and take my money."

    (note I do not mention the scimitar since it is a reman designed ship, which we romulans still don't have a "flagship" like the oddy and bortas btw...both of those are able to be obtained via fleet stores, granted not best versions but still)

    The conspiracy theorist in me says that they intentionally are making it so expensive that most people won’t buy it, thus giving them a “reason” to not make any more non-Fed Legendary Ships.

    I too suspect a 'romulan plot'. They purposefully, intentionally, maliciously left out the D'deridex to wither and die so they can perhaps make more money on Picard Romulan ships.

    I would have snapped up this bundle without hesitation if it came with a more iconic ship.

    Seriously, not having a legendary D'deridex is like leaving the Galaxy class out of the mix. Pure, seemingly intentional stupidity.
  • davefenestratordavefenestrator Member Posts: 9,540 Arc User
    "Just one ship" is true, but it does include the TOS T'Liss skin from the promo pack ship. For a TOS fan that raises the value. For less ancient Trek fans the Picard skin would also be a lock box or promo ship without this.

    If they fix the blog to include the missing T5 traits that also adds value for those who don't already own the Malem. We do get its console for sure.

    I'd be more tempted to buy the bundle if it turned that big red ball plasma torpedo back in to plasma damage instead of kenetic damage. That said, it would be paying money to undo the nerf they did a while ago which I doubt will happen. Still it'd tempt me more.
