What is the point??? - Shan's edit: behold full of immortalized crew

After ploughing time and resources in to the event to reach the premium behold, this is what I'm rewarded with....not impressed.

I only have 382 cards ff out of the 850 odd currently on offer. So less than half, and most of those are 5 and 4 star cards.

I've said it before but these premium behold options REALLY need a revamp of some sort. Its not a fair system at all and makes me want to not bother much going forward. Especially as its happening more and more often.

    Personally, I think it is just a side benefit for those going for rank. I tend to stop at 130k, unless I'm going for rank.

    It is frustrating but I see them mainly as sources of honor to get more legendary citations.

    200 Honor is 200 Honor. So I would say that is the point.

    It’s a lot of effort to go to for what is usually 1-2% of a legendary cite.

    It's as rare to get a new purple as it is to get a hold of a new gold for me.

    LOL ... the "point" is to part you from your money! Silly person! It amazes me how so many here on the forum think it's all personal ... it's not ... you personally mean squat ... we are all part of the huge 'milking herd'. ;) Just too funny.

    I'm pleased if one in five premium pulls are useful. I would like better, but there you have it. It shows that I spend too much time in the game. Oh, well.

    Yep I've lost track how many of these I've got. Two options remain:

    Go for a lower threshold don't waste the resources if enough people do this TP will probably need to re-evaluate the reward structure.

    Other option don't pull that pack like alll your hopes and dreams are in it, this isn't charlie and the chocolate factory. I'm starting to stack up the pulls because
    a: it's banked honor you can't spend might be handy next honor offers they provide.
    b: pulling multiple packs in a row though the odds are the same feels like you have a better chance hitting a begold.
    also depending on your roster and if you don't have a duplicate of Princess Jadzia she isn't a bad purple to dupe.

    Do it in bulk. I've found a get greater disappointment just pulling one pack every now and then, if you save up 10-20, then pull them all there's a good chance you might get lucky.

    But yes the more SRs you immortalize the higher chance of the all frozen behold. Maybe now is the time to work on dupes, for fun!

    I'd say it's worthwhile to start a thread in Make It So if you want to throw some ideas out there. I would like to see what you have in mind.
  • I have every purple that is in the regular time portal immortal. Many people are in the same boat, and some even have every gold in the time portal immortal. Removing every card that you have immortal from a behold choice is not an option.

    Also, I would rather have duplicate gary sevens or stranded quarks than a inglatu/mugato/grilka behold.

    Will do. In a nutshell though....a simple change. A Behold gives 2 options and a cite. Choose from the three as currently is

    I can't see them offering a cite, as it's far more valuable than a single card and would cut into potential sales in events where you get 3/4 cards.

    Maybe 2 options and 25% of the honour required for a 4*/5* cite to the sting out of all FF beholds.

    It'd also deal with situations where you feel compelled to get a dud, and either FE them or bin them for a pittance of honour.

    And you'd still get the basic honour for airlocking any straight drops

    Several people have suggested that a FFF BeGold or BeGold could maybe give you the option of a Citation. Not sure what coding complexity would be involved, though.

    I've seen a re-shuffle option pitched before. That's a personal favorite. If there was citation or "dump for increased honor option, then I would like to see that be a fourth option, personally. Three choices is already a fairly narrow field. I would hate to reduce it to two. :)

    An option I have seen in similar games is bonus currency for duplicate cards. Translated to this game, perhaps receiving extra honor for cards dismissed from an all-duplicate behold would be feasible. It would still give you the option for keeping any duplicate cards you might like, while taking a bit of the sting out and giving you a little more value if you airlock.
  • SImplest and fairest solution would be a reroll button, the game itself is recognizing an all ff behold since it is displaying frozen/frozen/frozen hencefort the 4th option "reroll" will become available. If another ff behold is displayed --> repeat....

    What if airlocking an immortalized card gave you honor as if it was FF? Would 800 be enough to make people less disappointed?
