Just a quick question for today — Based on your observation, how did the T6 Multi-Mission Explorer bundle/individual ships fare sales-wise?
The reason I’m asking is that the ships became available with last Thursday’s patch. Fungi mentioned last night that he hasn’t seen many (any?) of the T6 MME ships around the usual haunts. Me, I managed to finish up the Omega event and got the Lukari ship on Friday, so I haven’t checked in over the weekend at all — but on Thursday and Friday I didn’t see any of these guys… and I was actively looking for them because I wanted to gauge how big they are.
Is this true? This bundle didn’t sell? After all, Cryptic pulled a very obvious cash grab this time, and didn’t include an introductory sale (usually around 17% I think), something they’ve ALWAYS done with new ships. Since the T6 Vesta has been requested for so long, they probably figured it’s going to sell like hot cakes! Timing it’s not great, especially after a fair number of Science Vessels were released in recent memory, including the cross-faction Temporal ships and the Nebula bundle; I imagine most casual players have no immediate need for another run-of-the-mill Sci-Ship, especially at full price.
