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.
If they thrown in veteran BOFFs such an endgame pack would sell like hot cakes.
Personally I'm meh on the whole just becuase its not game breaking, its cheap, and it would be kind of nice to be able to start a fed character with all your bridge officer stations staffed and not have to worry about gear for 10 levels especially since you would like get access to all of this DURING the tutorial. Besides you don't have to buy it and if it gets the noobies starting at a good place so much the better.
My only gripe is it being per character.
