    A side-note: Kael just confirmed that Holo-Worf is account-unlocked but no traits were detailed.

    Worf is Tac of course, no space traits: Aggressive, Superior Honor, Superior Photonic Lifeform, & Warrior

    I think for a newish player it is a good deal. but for myself and 10+ years of playing I do not see a benefit

    Options 2 to 5 from the list.

    Extremely poor value at this price and with the current contents, not a patch on the original bundle. For a new player, which this seems to be trying to entice, the likes of the Vanguard bundle represents far better value. I have plenty of T6 coupons, and do not want or need any of the other 'fluff'. Finally, the lack of the D7 (most likely being saved for yet another overpriced single ship plus fluff bundle) and other Klingon ships represents a very poor choice for the so-called Year of Klingon.

    Halve the price, drop the fluff = better value = would likely purchase x 5 (its an Autism/OCD thing) = possible $500 in sales versus $0 as things stand.

    I honestly do not have the resources to afford this pack, hence why I will not be buying it.

    Cryptic should have followed how the previous Legendary bundle was set up. A cheaper price for just the legendary ships and the full cost for the premium bundle. If that is how it was set up, then this year's premium bundle would have been far better than last year's premium bundle with the Holo-Worf Bridge Officer and Monk Robes.

    Another reason why i don't buy the bundle. Here is yet another copy and paste Boff without Space Trait....

    of all the reasons, this is probably not a good one. That ship is absolute beast for pvp, it has all the dream seats for escort pvper, 4/2 is acceptable because high speed engagements favor beam arrays over fore weaps

    Cryptic should've utilized 1 or 2 of those Worf traits or abilities from that "Sphere of Influence" mission I think is is, the one where we pilot the Obelisk ship at the end.

    Too much copy & paste bare minimum instead of creativity & innovation.

    We may still get a ship-only bundle, and individual ships. I may just be their marketing strategy this time around to lead with what stands to generate the most per-unit sales revenue. When sales of the full bundle plateau, they can release the ship-only bundle.. when that plateaus, release the individual ships. Lave all options available.

    It would not be a wise business move to release all options at once. People who would buy only one ship will have no need of the ship bundle. People who buy the ship bundle would have no need of the full bundle. Best to let each tier of product have a chance to make the most money by releasing in phases.

    The bundle is just garbage.

    No ships-only-version like last year (at least so far unannounced), also SAME price for less "exclusive" content.

    On top of that, other than the Excelsior, none of the ships are considerably better than what's already available in the T6-range.

    I also wish that this bundle would have more actual klingon ships, rather than even more Starfleet mixed in. The Ambassador for example has no business being in there.
    The Vorcha already has the same mastery-trait, and other than the Ent-C's alleged huge sacrifice the ship didn't really do much on screen.

    Still holding out for a Negh'Var, honestly.

    pve powercreep is meaningless, but ye whoever designed this ship must have had pvp in mind, given that the other ships look repulsing and unattractive, i wouldnt be surprised if their starship traits/consoles (i havent seen them) are some hidden pvp gems that give some champ the edge he needs in order to pwn the ker rat.

    Priced to high and re-packaging T6 ships that are already available with slightly tweaked stats.

    How about focusing on ships not already T6 and selling me something I will buy like a T6 Nova/Steamrunner/Saber/Norway

    Padding and power creep, so nothing to really pique my interest.

    Especially for the greedonomic price.

    The Ships being offered do not include a ship that I want
    Let's take a look on the ships one by one

    - B'Rel: Usally i don't fly raiders.... so don't want this
    - Ambassador: I bought the Support Cruiser Bundle when it came out and I'm absolute happy with my Fleet T6x Ambass. With it's full TimeAgent Spec it's a better ship than the Legendary one, imho
    - Vor'Cha: Leg. One has a 5/3 Layout but it'S still not enough to switch from my Fleet T6X to this one.

    - Excelsior: The only ship from this bundle i would buy, if i can get it separate, like the Mirror Dreadnought.

    There are no T6 ships that I haven't already obtained, so those T6 coupons are useless to me.

    Past experience would not bear this out.... last year's "ships-only" version of the bundle was released at the same time... and individual ships from that bundle have never become available.

    I wish I could select multiple options. These packs are WAY expensive anymore, and completely unreasonable for cost. Second, with the sheer amount of ships that are currently available, short of some gimmick console, there really isn't much of a difference between them, and often times the gimmicks really aren't worth even using. After that, it's just like any other ship out there to start death by FAW for example. Its the same but with a different skin.

    I don't mind paying good money for stuff I like to have.

    And that is where the prolems of this pack start... The ships are bad. They are bad because they would not only NOT help me progress any of my 13 end game charaters further, they would mean a direct downgrade compared to what I already got for them. Even if I pursue some thematic phatasy for any of my chars (which I often do) I always look at stats and build options when getting them a craft. No chance here.

    What the other stuff is concerned Im glad they left out any high end or must have performance items cryptic has the habbit of getting me with on other occasions.

    For that matter, big thank you! Easy call here. :D

    Hahaha! And now they throw just about every sale possible (Lobi, Zen charge, AND ship sale) at the playerbase in their desperation to convince us to buy their Bundle'O fluff.
    :D

    None of those ships interest me... I dislike change (I hate setting up a ship for the first time), and based on my playstyle, i'm quite picky on what ship(s) I drive into battle.. With the 2 biggest boxes a ship has to check off is having a 5/3 weapon layout and to have/be able to use Weapon System Efficiency... Plus also atm my KDF Main character is quite content driving his Na'Qjej Intel Battlecruiser, the I.K.S. Butter-Cutter..

    That's not desperation, it's planned - so that people who are on the fence can start to rationalize the purchase.

    I'm a KDF aligned only player, so no interest in flying Fed ships. I only like flying fast ships, so that only leaves the Legendary B'rel which may be a very slightly improved version of one of my favorite ships the Na'kuhl Raider. No interest in any of the fluff. Even if I wanted all four ships it's too expensive, and I only somewhat want one of the ships. Oh and making part of the pack things most of us already have by just playing the game and participating in events is just insulting.

    Severely overpriced, as are all of the ships, let alone the 'bundles'.

    At that price, pretty much everything would have to be account unlocks for me to even consider it. I've also never been a fan of locking exclusives into highly overpriced bundles. Worf alone would be a fairly hot seller in the store, once they added space traits. As it it now, it's very lackluster with all ground traits.

    I like the game, but TBH, as the years have passed, they've gotten more and more greedy with their micros. I blame PWE for that. Even with the discount on Zen and the piddling discount on the bundle, it's just not enough value for the money, and I have a hard time rewarding blatant cash grabs.

    What "dream" seating...pretty much every raider has identical seating...everything except maybe the cmdr slot is uni. The Temer has the same seating and also has a extra uni ensign

    Besides...do you think the people who fork out who knows how much money/billions of ec to buy ships and traits to be as op as they can are going to use a c-store raider? No, they're gonna use a La Sirena which has a cmdr tac/pilot, cmdr uni, lt cmdr uni, and a lt uni. It also comes with a experimental weapon designed to disable your target...knock out their engines for a couple seconds and they're likely dust

    Priced too high/only want the ships. It's both, really. But the inherent failing in this is price, so I went with that.

    Well, jokes on them. I for one still have some of the Lobi from the latest campaign so I'll be outfitting my Temer with two pieces of the Altamid set for the price of one.
    They won't see a single dime from me for this poor excuse of a bundle.

    Not agreeing with someone doesn't give you the right to be an TRIBBLE.

    Ci sono tre tipi di giocatori:
    - quelli a cui non va mai bene niente... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.
