Mega-Event Special Discounted Packs

SunshineRikerSunshineRiker ✭✭✭✭✭
For our “Captive Intent” Mega-Event, special discounted packs will be available in the Time Portal! This will be the perfect opportunity to acquire crew to help you throughout the month, so don’t miss it!

During parts 1 through 3 of the Mega-Event, these special themed pack will showcase crew with the “Interrogator” or “Prisoner” trait. The 10x pack will have a discounted price of 490 Dilithium.

Our Mega-Event Recap packs available after the Mega-Event has ended will also be discounted at 390 Dilithium for a 10x pack and 3900 Dilithium for a 10x pack featuring all Super Rare crew with at least one Legendary crew guaranteed. These packs will feature all the crew from the Mega-Event, including Thrax!

These will be the only mega-event related packs available for the “Captive Intent” Mega-Event. The regularly available Vanguard, Catch Up, and Reinforcements packs will not be offered.

We hope you enjoy part one of the Mega-Event which starts this Thursday!

    Can you confirm the normal weekly event packs will also still happen and if those will also be on sale.

    The weekly event packs with the featured crew for the event will still come out each Wednesday at their normal price.
  • The community definitely appreciates the heads up!

    Yes, indeed we do... If I hadn't hoovered up all the Romulan Ale I got for my birthday from an irrascible doctor friend of mine, I'd raise a glass in thanks!

    I had to check the date to make sure this wasn’t an April Fools joke...

    Am I correct in assuming that these general-trait packs contain only crew who will not be featured event crew across the month?

    Going by the example image posted to Twitter...
    jxsu47r5022s.jpg
    ...does this mean that we should expect that these crew (Xindi Prisoner Archer, Mirror Garak, Vengeful L'Rell, Mintakan Troi, Prisoner O'Brien, and Tosk) will not be one of the weekly featured event crew across this mega? And will that always be the case for these discounted packs?

    Why would you assume that? They are featuring all Prisoners or Interrogators. Some of them may show up in the event, some won't. There has been no indication that these packs won't include crew who will be featured in the future.

    Because it would be extremely crappy of them to sell a pack that has what they know will be featured crew at a discount in advance of confirming whether they're featured.

    For instance, if the example packs are what is about to go on sale, and these packs come and go only for folks to find out two weeks into the mega that Mirror Garak is suddenly going to be featured event crew but is then only available in the non-discounted pack for his event, that would be obnoxious. Hence my query.

    If a crew is available in a discounted pack and then later is available in a normal priced pack, well you could have purchased the crew at a discount earlier, so I don't see the problem.

    If you get a crew in a discount pack that ends up being event crew 2 weeks later, then you had the crew for 2 weeks as a small bonus and you had 2 weeks to level the crew, again I don't see a problem.

    I don't see why this is any different than crew in a Tuesday pack that is also in the regular portal or may show up in a future Tuesday pack or event pack.

    I welcome the lower price, sadly I will probably have the SR card in the vault already so will abstain on the grounds that I don't like flushing money down the toilet.

  • Really neat idea. Looking forward to trying out the post mega event packs. Unfortunately I don’t need any of the cards in the two discounted packs right now, but I’ll be on the lookout in the next few weeks.

    Bought a couple discounted packs from each. Have only one of each pack already ff/fe. Guess it fills my honour faster with the dupes I get every time I get a pack and game forgets I need crew I don't have yet. Boo.

    Sitting on a load of dil, and these are not the packs I was waiting to jump on. That is a meh L'Rell and Tosk is also two stat.

    I like that the end pack will be cheaper too. Really helps players. It is a good idea. If only we knew when Cheesecake Seven was coming so I knew how to ration my dilithium. Also, if DB were to send me the dilithium deal where you get $50 worth of dilithium for $25 I would buy it immediately. As long as they send me other ones though I will not. Up to you DB if you want $25 from me. :)
  • I bought one of the interrogator packs (had both 4* stars immortal) and got L'Rell at the first and only possible attempt. So nothing to complain about here :smiley:

    (I know she isn't very useful, but she's one of about 5 existing legendaries that I really want just because I like the characters and/or that version of them, so I'm more than happy with the result :smiley: )

    wait my friend as these packs seems to be rotating crew with the respective traits so there is a possibility of powerhouse crew showing themselves

    Will there be other discount prisoner and interrogator packs besides those two?

    That is the impression I got from the in game mail. There will be different packs each event during the mega.

    There will be different packs with different crew included in at least the second and third week of the mega-month, yes.

    With the limitation of available interrogators and prisoners, that makes sense. May need to do a repeat or three in week 4. Thanks, @SunshineRiker ! (For both clarifications)
  • Nice I can finish TOSK then freeze his **tsk tsk** after the event.
    One of the worst cards but EASIEST 5* I have ever leveled up.
  • Elim Lorca [10F]Elim Lorca [10F] ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm hoping for Mirror Phlox and Inquisitor Troi in the same pack one week. Is there another 4* mirror Interrogator to finish out that pack? Warship EMA and Keeper are also on my list for interrogators. Rura Penthe Kirk and Martia are the prisoners that I most want to see. I've got my fingers crossed. :)
  • WundigoreWundigore ✭✭✭
    Welcome news on the rotation of characters. I have a number of purple unfinished prisoners and interrogators, but have all 4 from these two particular sets. The Troi and OBrien are pretty solid cards for newer players. Great choices for a sale price for newer players.

    I feel like a broken record by saying that I desperately want Rura Penthe Kirk...if he shows up in one of the discount packs, I would definitely dip into the dil reserves earmarked for Cheesecake Doctor Seven.

    So the event packs at the end will all be available and discounted at 390 dilithium or will it just be one mega pack with all the event month people?
