Hey all,

thought it might be helpful to encourage people to share their gains from the new merit reward system in the portal. is it worth the 725 merits for 3 pulls? Let's see if the community can help us figure that out! ;)

  • I'm referring to this as the Honor Exchange Program.

    Did it once and got a 3* Geordi, 3* Culluh, and 2* Scotty.
  • It's worth it if you have no other use for merits and wanna convert then to honour.

    But with the abusive proficiency rooms in starbases designed to attack smaller players/fleets, merits might be vital in Gauntlet now

    Nice thread, curious to read some results here before spending merits I could easily use for gauntlet
  • first 2 pulls:

    1x1*
    4x2*
    1x3*

    so 325 honor for 1550 merits...meh... ;)
  • WebberoniWebberoni ✭✭✭✭✭
    My first purchase of the new merit pack resulted in: 2* Pazlar, 3* Reed, 4* Reed (350 honor).
  • 2* Rom, 1* Keiko, 3* Mendon
    Thinking I'll save my Merits for Gauntlet.
  • first 4 pulls
    1x1
    7x2
    3x3
    1x4 (human Q already immortalized)

    875 honor for 3100 merits or just shy of 220 honor per pull
  • [7TW] UnkieB[7TW] UnkieB ✭✭✭✭✭
    Did 6 pulls, all 1, 2 & 3*'s (honor).

    01 - Promoted Sisko, Donik, Sito
    02 - Major Kira, Brahms, Recovering Spock
    03 - Cretak, Ent-D Picard, Vash
    04 - Prisoner Bones, Lt Cdr Scott, Crewman Tarsis
    05 - Writer Jake, Maquis Torres, Maquis Chakotay
    06 - Leeta, Keiko, Sito
  • How long will it be up?!?
  • I've pulled several 4*s and of course 3s and 2s and it works for me to turn them into honor
  • I did just one pull to test it: Brahms (3*), Persis and Nog (2*).
  • WebberoniWebberoni ✭✭✭✭✭
    Good idea, but 725 merits seems a bit steep.
  • Spend about 20k merits... 1 gold, 1 purple... all honor!

  • 3* RIchard Castillo
    1* Lt Jadzia Dax
    2* First Maje Haron

    175 honour for 725 merits. Not something I'll be doing again I think.
    Level 81. Latest Immortal (562): Lt. Ilia - 23/07/20.

    Spent about 15K. Purples were Dixon Hill which I needed a last star for, and Lore, who got airlocked along with every one else.
  • lwk667u1u66w.png

    Did 5 pulls.

    1 x 1*
    7 x 2*
    7 x 3*

    That's 3625 merits for 1075 honor or a 3.37 merit-to-honor rate (small sample size, obviously)

    Well, that 3600 merits, when I factor in the 25 merits I got from the daily for portal purchases :smiley:
  • PallidynePallidyne ✭✭✭✭✭
    11 Pulls.

    3x3
    The rest 2s and 1s.

    I'll do this again to bleed off excessive merits if I get them built up again. (This took me down to 10k merits...)

    I made 10 pulls. If it was 3* or less I mostly ignored it as I've got too many characters to gear up now. There were two really good pulls and one generally OK one, which was actually good for me.

    1st pull: (I hadn't even seen this Kirk in the wild before.)

    6th pull: (It was good for me, I needed that last star on Chekov.)
    OK6kvj6.png

    8th pull: (A nice second star on Admiral Nechayev.)

    All-in-all I'd say it was worth it, plus I got to airlock a bunch of Wesleys. :smiley:
  • PallidynePallidyne ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah its honor hunting at that point as I have all 1s 2s 3s FFed...but hey the merits weren't helping me that much except in item shopping now and again.

    I don't see the point in trying to 'win' Gauntlet.

    Two pulls, 2 blues and 4 greens. It seems quite clear that this pull is not worth doing. Spend your merits in gauntlet and faction stores.
  • 2 pulls
    All honor, but did see a 4* Romulan troi

    It's got potential..
    I'd like to see the refresh cost in the gauntlet lowered to make this something that can be done on a more regular basis..

    Good addition to the game.
