    Not really a fan of this idea, but if it happened once or twice a year, I wouldn't be mad. :)

    They've been on a one good, one bad rotation. And October is Halloween. I bet Sato is followed by the worst main cast crew with the Costumed trait.

    I’m curious your reason as to why

    As it is, it's that one extra chance to finish a 1/5. I may get to use the citation elsewhere. If it were a new legendary, then I would probably use the citation to finish it. But like I said, if it happened occasionally, it wouldn't be bad. I suppose I'm also comfortable with the current release date of new legendaries.

    Edit: also, I like that only half of the new legendaries are behind a pay wall. Adding new ones to campaign would tip that balance of it were frequent.

    I guess I’m a minority then. I would DYC just like I do the recurring mega and use the citation elsewhere. As for the Tuesday pack sale perhaps I’m in the minority’s there as well cuz I don’t gamble on 3% odds

    Of course you are a minority. You told us about your spendings from time to time. That puts you in a tiny percentage of the whole playing field. And suchs peeps are needed to keep games like this alive. So thanks for that.

    I also would not like to see new legendaries in the campaigns though. The way it is together with the half off 15 packs/3000 DIL/3000 Chrons deal the best offer in the game. Despite those there has been no significant rise in the revenue of the game if sites like sensortower show it accurately.

    If they now would also add fresh cards to the mix (maybe even with stellar stats) where would be the incentive to buy the more expensive wednesday packs anymore? On the other hand:

    Since they also give base beasts like High Roller Sisko or Professor Sato maybe it would not not make too much difference in the end really. Although I don´t mind second copies of strong cards...

    I wonder if this rotation is intentional? Put out a good campaign 5* on non-mega months to drive DYC sales. As a mid-level ($20-$40/month) spender, I almost always DYC the mega card (Minuet types excluded.) I might consider a DYC each month to get another strong 5/5, but 2 DYC's in the same month? Not gonna happen.
  • My 1/5 Professor Sato and I approve of this Campaign.

    Same!

    I don't have her and absolutely going to DYC Sato and use the citation elsewhere.

    I'm sure they're experimenting with what sells well. Sisko probably sold well. But was that his stats or him being a main cast. Well Troi was main cast with weak stats. So they saw how that sold. Now they are adjusting and offering another strong stats. If she sells well, it wouldn't shock me to see someone like Culber show up in a future campaign.

    Sato is an awesome card! Already have her FF but definitely happy to get a second copy. May even use the campaign cite on her too! Her stats are killer

    My 1/5 Professor Sato and I approve of this Campaign.

    Me and mine as well.

    She's a very valuable member of my crew, can't wait to use the clone machine on her!

    I been saying this from the beginning, least this way everyone is on equal footing, and would make it more balanced.

    and to answer the above questions, it is reference to people who already have the mentioned crew, which makes the value of the campaign lot less, so many of the bigger spenders might skip it.
  • Prof Sato is an invaluable member of my crew, used daily since her very highly competitive event. It was hard work getting her then, and was and is easily one of the best citation project/ returns ratios on release.

    The chance to get another at 4/5* at least, is a no brainer when you factor the other things in premium.
    Lets hope the trend of stat heavy campaign crew continues and we don't end up with Shinzon in October!!

    Next month I was thinking we are due for:
    Bad stats
    Discovery
    Deep Space Nine
    Likely Costumed

    Pattern has largely been main cast with three stats for legendary, with the exception of Leland who was not main cast.

    There are no Costumed Discovery crew, unless I missed someone.

    DS9 possibilities:
    Prince Bashir and Princess Jadzia
    RAF O'Brien and RAF Bashir
    Anastasia Komonov and Falcon O'Brien

    Other series:
    Arachnia and Captain Proton
    North Star Archer and Tucker
    Sherlock Data and Dr. La Forge
    Gunslinger Uhura and Claiborne Chekov
    Any combo of the Sherwood Forest or Holodeck Enthusiasts collections, really.

    I would love the White Rabbit, but I can't think of a good partner or justification.

    The DS9 legendary with worst stats is Prince Bashir, so I suppose that's my guess.

    I'd love a shot at RAF O'Brien. I've had him at 1/5 forever and haven't gotten another copy or been able to justify citing him over other crew that were higher priority. I have Pilots Bashir, Yar and Mayweather already FF/FE and would love to finish the group.
  • [S14]Bri[S14]Bri ✭✭✭
    I have her @5/5* and I’ll happily make her immortal for a second time. Her base makes shuttles easy, and she’s even useful in faction events without being event crew during desperate times.
  • Banjo1012Banjo1012 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm fine with a Campaign 4* being new/exclusive, but the most exciting thing for me about the Premium track is finally getting to IMM my x/5's. I'd be miffed if that was changed. Even if I loved the new 5*'s, knowing that my x/5's would never benefit from a Campaign would sour the whole thing. So far, I've gotten to complete Captain Spock and High Roller Sisko, and I'm gonna get to finish Professor Sato. That's what makes Campaigns worthwhile for me.

    I see that point. Great answer.

  • Ishmael MarxIshmael Marx ✭✭✭✭✭
    At 1/5, Prof Sato has been on a few faction shuttles for me in events where Dip was weak among the bonus crew. She's been on the future citation list for a while, but I just hadn't gotten to her. I'm very happy to get her FF'd next month.

    Would be cool though if you could choose between two legendaries for the campaign in case you have already spent honor or dilithium to lvl one of them up already.

    I'm trilingual and have lived in three countries and visited many more. I can appreciate the lack of desire for a baseball theme. However, on a personal level, I would very much like it.

    October is Baseball playoffs. I predict we'll get a baseball theme. Niners Worf and Niners Kira or Rom

    Ugh. Please don't force us non-Americans to join in on celebrating this "sport." (I say this as someone who absolutely loves "Take Me Out to the Holosuite")

    Costumed theme for the win!

    Baseball is played and celebrated in many countries besides the U.S. including but not limited to Canada, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, Venezuela, and Colombia.

    So very true. The World Baseball Classic illustrates this. Huge names on teams from many countries.
