Meh.. I pass...

so now we are supposed to buy actual gear from the store...

now I am afraid to go on the STO forum!
A dollar for gear you'll outlevel in an hour. ONO GAMEBREAKER.
Well, reaction to the pack are more amused so far it seems...
that gear is not gamebreaking, no. But it`s a ripoff, since 30 minute playtime after the tutorial nets you the same stuff..
If it makes Cryptic happy to sell that stuff, let them. Im certain there are people out there stupid enough to go for it...

It will get interestng when they start selling ENDGAME gear like this because this was so successful.
I get the feeling that this is the result of PWE pressuring Cryptic to add items to the C-store. Personally, I think what would sell better would be bundles, like the current TOS and Enterprise bundles. They can certainly introduce a TNG bundle that contains the Galaxy class, TNG uniform, Captain's Yacht and a handful of phaser pistols. Or a Section 31 bundle that contains the Section 31 uniform, a unique stealth deflector array or cloaking device console or antiproton shuttle phaser beam array.
