  • I know it's only available through Epic. What I want to know is what happens after it's bought; if it gives you a code to redeem via the website for example, then it's usable.
  • Even though I have a Temporal Recruit, A. Loads of people missed out on the first run, and B. if it was rerun I'd still want to make a new character for it. It's part of the charm, gives it the old 60's production values. I thought it was a nice touch.
  • Just remember that it's available in one of the starter packs with some extras for less than the cost of the ship. (if you haven't bought it already)
  • The only thing that's dying is the lockbox model as legislation and case precedent law steadily tightens; part of the reason for Legendary Bundles is trying to get test alternative revenue generation should lockboxes reach a turning point where they are no longer legally viable. Part of this process is testing out how high…
  • If it helps, for me, they're bound. As were the keys and the promo packs. The T6-X upgrade tokens aren't bound.
  • The Path to 2409: Volume 22, Chapter 3 On Qo'noS, the Klingon High Council was rocked by the revelation that Councilor Konjah was an Undine. What Starfleet Intelligence learned about the situation is this. After a night of revelry in the First City, Konjah was walking with two other Klingons back to his lodgings when he…
  • Well, then you are getting into whether value is decided as a function of the production cost plus margin based on their labour and resources required vs by the end user's financial willingness to buy, and those are two separate ways of determining the value. One thought process has them be the same, the other has them…
  • The more than that being that they can kill by telepathy.
  • Working out the costs of everything and comparing it to the price charged, and it is good value, even before the Lobi. The issue is more about desirability of the pack, not so much the value of the pack....
  • I'm in the rather presumptuous position that I've had the Zen for this anniversary bundle bought in November, with the decision to buy being made after the 10 pack of Fed ships. (the T'Liss and Mirror Gal-X legendaries meant my funds needed to be topped up...) So, I may as well finish the process. Back then, I was…
  • Essentially, Letheans are telepathic and able to force the Undine to appear in their normal forms.
  • There's the Fek'ihri vanity shield, and the Terran rep shield is relatively similar the Klingon Type 4 material.
  • Actually you are completely wrong; this is the first non-Lobi/promo/lockbox Raider with 5/1. All C-Store Raiders are 4/2. The hull is the same as a promo raider and one of the lockbox raiders, the shield is higher than any lobi/lockbox/promo raider, and it has an Enhanced Battle Cloak, which is better than any…
  • Then they would be free to be sent to Gre'thor where they can verify the truth, and things progress as they would without L'Rell.
  • Are they allowed to do it? Well, yeah; in the extremely unlikely event anyone is willing to pay 10 keys for fleet holding access, then they've agreed to the terms imposed. Is it reasonable? Hell no. It might not be a scammy thing, but it is a scummy thing. (well, much worse, but then the pun wouldn't work) There are loads…
  • Your quote has malfunctioned. L'Rell's body is a clone; we rescued the important bit from Gre'thor. Another key difference is that Kahless' return was expected, while L'Rell... Is less expected. Probably wouldn't come as a total surprise given how much of the past has become the present of late. Another key difference was…
  • Because for all the games many faults, there's nothing better at what it does best - creating characters within the Star Trek universe; all the series are represented within the constraints that they face by a 25th century setting, with an equivalent level of writing quality to the shows (that is, some of it is brilliant…
  • 18750 Zen buys 166 keys, which gets 664 Lobi minimum. So, viewed in that comparision, 500 Lobi plus 11 keys (min 4) plus 11 R&D promo packs (min 10) gives 654 Lobi minimum. Ok, 10 Lobi less, but for the sake of 10 Lobi you may as well have the bundle. Promo packs are better - 740 Lobi vs 654 Lobi. But, those aren't on sale…
  • J'mpok still has enough power to A. declare himself Emperor and B. abolish the High Council and not be immediately killed for doing either one of those things. He isn't sunk yet.
  • The one he has attacked was Khitomer; attacking Qo'noS was one of the two possible futures seen by J'ula. J'ula's motivation is that she was wanting to continue her brother's legacy and renew the Empire by returning to a golden era, and the progression in her character arc is that she has realised that she has screwed it…
  • And the worst part is that when they want to, they can do Klingon stuff so well.
  • I'm sure I'm not the only one, but once the Fed Legendary bundle came out, and all this year of Klingon thing started, I decided that the KDF Legendary bundle would be something I would get as soon as it was available; I've had 25k Zen sat in my account ever since November specifically for this. (the first Zen sale I knew…
  • This genuinely made me laugh. In all seriousness though, being able to set the title of address at the character choice level (defaulting to rank when no title is set) would be a really nice quality of life thing.
  • I have to agree that it's a disappointment. My initial response was "ok, Cryptic must have heard the complaints, so they'll perhaps make it an equivalent of the Legendary Gal-X". I wasn't far off; ship to ship the turn rate post-nerf is still better, and given a straight choice between 1.45 hull/6.5 turn rate and 1.5…
  • It depends. Bat'leths are THE Klingon weapon, but they do have drawbacks when used in battle in both real life and the game, which the game clunkily emulates some of those limitations. (in real life they would be brilliant defensive weapons, two equally skilled fighters and a conventional sword would likely never land a…
  • Doffed Tractor beam repuslors? (Graga Mal (Fed) and Falla Okev (Kdf) turn TBR into a pulling in thing with mild damage) Stack various stuff listed here? https://sto.gamepedia.com/Skill:_Control_Expertise Push the damage high enough that it one shots them so that you don't have to regroup them?
  • All of those are valid subcategories by which ships can be subdivided, and should be, because it all contributes to being able to do more rigorous analysis; far from being useless, it enables far better understanding of the data. Certainly Pre-Delta Rising C-Store releases should be divided between T1-4 and T5, and post DR…
  • Let's recap - I start off by beginning with the accepted definition of the odds. You make the claim that you have seen odds that are lower, without any attempt to substantiate your claim despite being the one contradicting the established estimates, and then claim that my figures are wrong. Someone else gets involved to…
  • Therefore you should be listing them separately to the normal C-Store releases. I would also be inclined to divide the Legendary ships between C-Store plus and lockbox/lobi/promo minus, because it makes a substantial difference in the desirability and obtainability of the ship. So, the data for 2020/2021 now reads as: 2020…
  • The obligation is on you to prove that your claim of 1/125 to 1/150 is true, and a "multiple thousand" is not remotely precise enough; that is a small sample size for the purposes of obtaining odds of a grand prize ship, although it would be adequate for assessing the more likely outcomes. So, once again going through the…
