    It's usually a 20% discount so either 1200 or 1500 lobi.
    The other cardassians ships are nice and the Garak Boff looks interesting, but i am doubtful about this investment.

    If you happen to have 400 million EC. That is what they were going for last night when I picked one up on the Exchange.

    I would have bought if it included the playable Cardassian race. I really don't have much room for another holo celebrity bridge officer.

    That would've been a good addition that would've made this bundle more enticing at Cryptic's price point.

    Starting tomorrow, we're releasing a special Lobi Bundle on PC celebrating one of our favorites - plain, simple Garak. Grab the Cardassian Keldon Cruiser, a Holographic Garak Bridge Officer, and more!

    This one was a plain and simple "nope" and should have been a Mudd's store item with account reclaim for ship and Garak.

    Why are things seeming to get just more and more expensive? Why are they continuing to offer more junk at ever expansive pricing? Plain and simply a 'no' from me.

    Although, if they're that desperate for cash, why dont they just make this game a pay monthly again. Many of us are life timers anyway - atleast it'll give them an opportunity to update the life time subscription offer and gain some steady income before this game gets beyond its already ruined state.

    I'm not sure about this part, but I agree that it seems Cryptic is going for more "big-ticket" selling instead of offering more common player items/services for sale. Besides that there's normal inflation too, but Cryptic regulates the supply then players' actions are secondary in supply & definitely demand.

    I always found the ceasing of the normal subscription option off-putting myself & wondered about that decision. Maybe its along the lines of focusing on "big-ticket" selling. What I thought Cryptic did dirty to many of those normal subscription players was not auto up-tiering by 1 when they deactivated the normal subscribing.

    Beyond that, I think Cryptic is trying different approaches & with that some will swim & some will sink. I think Cryptic/PWE is trying this for if/when loot (gamble) boxes become regulated or illegal.

    People want loot boxes gone and more direct purchases, did you think it would be cheap?

    There is some value in some of these bundles though. You just have to do the math. Sure, the appeal isn't always there when they bundle up too many things though. The Stealing Time bundle on sale with the ZEN charge bonus was worth it for me to finally cave, but if Temporal ships aren't your thing. That's completely understandable. The same goes for the Legendary Fed Bundle.

    well I'm all for avoiding ridiculous pricing for garbage like the latest romulan legendary bundle - doing the math, it works out as garbage for sure.

    I'd happily pay monthly for a plain and simple mmo :pensive:

    I am not part of these people.
