    Just to add going through this thread... the single biggest mistake Cryptic made was mixing Fed and KDF ships in a pack.

    You instantly turned off 80% of players one way or the other. No one is paying the price your asking for 2 ships... and for the vast majority of players they identify as one of the other. I love playing KDF and if the pack was Brel Vorach D7 D4x.... I would have bit I have zero doubt. I would have felt extremely ripped off and hated myself but I would have. I am sure many fed main players feel exactly the same the other way.

    It is priced too high
    I have a confession to make ... I hate myself but two hours ago I discovered my state had sent me a small stimulus ... against my better judgment I immediatly got the bloatware bundle ... again I hate myself for this ...

    Well, I'll laugh at you a little, but hopefully laugh with you more, but don't hate yourself for it. I hope you enjoy it & get enough value out of it.

    I only want the ships, not the extra items

    As a primarily Fed player with multiple Feds of all types fully maxed out level, Rep and spec point wise; (although I have a an Eng, Tac & Sci (IE 3 chars) in each existing faction including al 3 Fed faction, KDF and RR - although currently only my Eng Klingon is 'done in terms of Rep, Spec points, etc; and I only have one Eng Jem Hadar because really there's no reason to do another)...

    The 'mixing of ships wasn't the turn off - it was the overall price (too high for what they offer) because they didn't offer a 'the 4 ships only' option (like they did with the 2020 10-pack of ships) - because I don't think much of ANY of the 'extras' <--- It's all useless to me as I have all the T6 ships I want - and you CAN'T (unless Cryptic screws up like they did the first day of the Titan's T6 release - you CAN'T use a T6 100% off coupon on a newly released T6; and yes, I used one of the T6 coupons I had sitting from the first 'year log' event that rewarded one to get it; but I figured it was because Cryptic - and lo and behold, next day they admit it was a mistake, but hey at least they didn't remove the ship from those of us who took advantage of said mistake.)

    But yeah for me - the price for what they offer here is the reason I passed because beyond the 4 ships, I don't care about said 'extras' given what Cryptic wants to charge for everything. The ships themselves weren't the issue.

    Nothing in this bundle interests me
    None of the ships in the cash shop, lock boxes or promo pack interest me. I never got attached to the "legendary" ones.

    I followed the story of the crew that was on them, not the ship. Without the crew the ships and stations are just floating hunks of metal waiting to be recycled.

    I was considering it. Then they nerfed my ability to access my account bank on a fresh Romulan while several items are just broken that they still don't work. So why spend money if I am essentially given nothing to play?

    Nor should they be. Their ships would look weird.

    I only want the Excel and Vor'cha, the rest of the pack i have no interest in. All that extra garbage to pump up the price is a non-starter.
    T6 Miranda Hero Ship FTW.

    Price and ships offered. No TOS D7, DSC D7, Kelvin D7 (the counterparts of the 3 Constitution class versions of the 10th anniversary ships) and no Sarcophagus sealed a no buy for me. If the bundle had at least added in the 3 D7 versions would have considered buying.

    1.My biggest gripe is i was only interested in getting some KDF ships. instead in order to get the only legendary KDF ships we have to grab right now some feddy stuff that i have in some other form that i don't really want another copy off just for a slightly different layout and gimmic console.

    2. ridiculously overpriced especially during the backstreet boys reunion tour.

    3. Over bloated with mostly useless bits and pieces to try and justify such a high price a vast.


    All in all this should have been a simple legendary KDF pack rather than shoehorning in even more variants of feddy ships that keep repeatedly getting re-released that we already have and at this point are just looking at BoFF slots more than the ship as a whole.
    what makes this whole thing worse is that i wanted to support the pack in order to get some more KDF legendary ships made but i cant justify purchasing this one at its huge price tag to get 2 ships im never going to use along with the 2 T6 ship coupons there to desperately justify the huge price tag when i will get a T6 ship if i want one not drop extra cash in the hope a new one comes out i like that i can use it on.

    It kind of feels like this whole pack was released with the intention to fail and so that new KDF ships don't have to get made.

    It is priced too high
    Ok, at actual price i wasnt going to but it, but then i linked my account to the Epic Store, and discovered that the convertion to my local currency was quite good, so i pulled the trigger, and i'm quite happy, i hope that rate keeps for the entire year!.

    Heck, if you're happy that's what matters. This is coming from a "no I didn't buy it" player. I hope you find enough enjoyment from it! I thought all of the visuals & skin options were well done.

    I can live without the B'rel and the Excelsior, and much if not all the extra goodies. Ambassador is interesting but not much more than the Narendra thats already in the store.
    ...That Vor'Cha tho....
    not buying a bundle regardless.
