Another R&D Pack Promotion. Pick up your R&D mats needs this coming Thursday from….
…Did it just say…. T6 Constitution??? T6 D7 Cruiser??? T6 T’Liss???
Alright, if this is legit, then this is huge news. STO players have been asking, begging, demanding, threatening, DYING for an end-game version of the Constitution class ever since the game started, and Cryptic has always said CBS won’t allow it. So did something change?
Let’s put that question aside for the moment, and look at how you can get one of these much, MUCH coveted ships.
From 8/25/16 at 9:30AM Pacific to 8/29/16 at 10AM Pacific, we will be running a promotion that will provide an additional bonus when opening a Research and Development Pack.
When you purchase a Research and Development Pack from the C-Store and open it, you will receive either 10 Lobi Crystals or Special Requisition Pack – 23rd Century Tier 6 Ship, in addition to the Research and Development Pack.
Opening this *Special Requisition Pack – 23rd Century Tier 6 Ship *will award one of 3 ships depending on the character’s faction:
- Temporal Light Cruiser [T6] – Constitution Class (Starfleet Only)
- D7 Temporal Battlecruiser [T6] (Klingons Only)
- T’liss Temporal Warbird [T6] (Romulans Only)
Each of the above ships come with their 23rd Century iconic costume in addition to both free and paid ship costume unlocks:
The Temporal Light Cruiser has access to the Constitution Refit, Excalibur and Vesper costumes for free and it can use the Exeter’s costume if that starship is owned.
The D7 Temporal Battlecruiser has access to the K’t’inga and K’t’inga Refit costumes for free and it can use the Koro’t’inga’s costume if that starship is owned.
The T’liss Temporal Warbird has access to the T’varo costume for free and it can use the Malem’s costume if that starship is owned.
Note:_ Only newly purchased Research and Development packs will offer the chance to win the Special Requisition Pack – 23rd Century Tier 6 Ship during this promotional event. Packs purchased before or after the event will not offer bonus Lobi or the *Special Requisition Pack – 23rd Century Tier 6 Ship. *Packs purchased during the event, but opened after the event ends will still benefit from this promotion’s bonus rewards._
The promotion is only on for four days. Assuming the drop rate of one of these ships is the same as lockbox ships, then that means these guys are going to be three times rarer because R&D packs cost approximately three times that of a Master Key. This is a seriously expensive way to get these ships! If you go with the 4-pack bundles, each pack will still cost twice as much as a Master Key. Ouch.
This weekend is going to be crazy for STO players. O_O
