New Commander Sela offer is deceptive

  • I knew what I was buying. I took a chance hoping to add stars to Mintakan Riker, and I was lucky enough to add 2 stars to him.

    Knew exactly what I was buying. I do not think it was deceptive. Happy to finish Sela now to make her useful in the faction part of the event. Happy to be done by tomorrow save for scoring once to get community awards in the galaxy phase.

    Tempting.... it seems like this offer was specifically designed for me and me alone.

    My Sela is at 1/4. Buying this pack would let me FF and freeze her and finish the event after hitting threshold, and all I would miss out on is a low chance of burning through all my resources for a 1/5 I'll probably never use, plus I would get my weekend without dealing with the event stress. Whatever I get to drop from the 5 packs it comes with would just be a bonus.

    I didn't buy it, but when I clicked on the little "i" icon for information on the Falcon Falls pack, it said the pack had Romulan Picard and Mintakan Troi in it (even though the picture has Mintakan Riker and Ambassador Spock). This is on iOS for iPad/iPhone. So I think those who bought it have a right to complain.

    Knew what I was getting, and it was exactly what I needed -- immortalized Sela and Amabassador Spock, and picked up 2x Mintakan Riker, so, sweet.

    I hope you get the same VIP points as you would get for a 25 offer even though it's a 10 (it does say discount, so the original offer is a 25). :)

    I bought it k owing full well I didn’t want any of the crew. I needed 4000 honor to hit 50k. Admiral Riker is now a 5 star admiral

    I bought it expecting a bunch of Spocks since I had him immortalized. From the packs, I pulled 3 Selas and 2 Rikers. I didn't have Sela at all so she is now FF. I also got a T'Rul (now 3/4) and a Revolutionary Damar (FOR CARDASSIA!!!).

    This pack and deal are very confusing. The picture shows Mintakan Riker, Ambassador Spock and Sela but the description says Romulan Picard, Mintakan Troi, and Sela. n5768c0btz6l.png

    I got ten 3* fuses, one 4* fuse, 2400 honor, two behold, 3 Sela, 3 Ambassador Spock, and one Elf Riker along with 6 ship upgrades. Also VIP so when I double the legendary during the next mega event, I will hit a new VIP threshold and get 20 crew spots.

    Good deal.

    How many VIP points did you get?

    My understanding is that every offer gives the same VIP per dollar. So at $9.99, this would give the same VIP as a $9.99 dilithium purchase, 500.

    The same is also true with bonus dilithium. This offer will give the same VIP level based bonus dilithium as a $9.99 dilithium purchase.

    This actually gives the vip based on the original price. The offer @$25 gave 1500 vip.

    It still does .

    This gave me 1500. And no possibility of being mistaken because i was very close to vip 14 and this just got me there.

    I pulled four Selies and one Riker, I'm happy. He's now 4/5 FE. :)

    I got a 2nd star on my Mintaken Riker
    4 Selas
    2 Spocks

    not at all shabby, perhaps an extra Riker would have been the icing on the cake, but it's best not to be too hubristic about it.

    Also it has temporarily resolved my slot issue (for now)

    I saw this offer and was immediately tempted, but then realized some time later that the pack offer was for Frankenriker and Ambasador Spock.

    Poor timing and if it was for THIS event than I for sure would have bought it.

    I was fooled too but after reading this and thinking about it for awhile, I still plan to buy it today.... just because it is not what I thought it was...... it's still an OK offer.



    Addendum:

    Did pretty good... besides the Bonus Dil and other stuff, I got a 3rd star for my Christmas Worf and a Protomorphosis Worf

    Elf Riker was one of the few events I missed playing hard, and so I took the chance on the deal and managed both 1 Riker and Benny Russell (another first copy) in a behold. Also finished Commander Uhura’s final star in a 4* behold which was a long time in coming. Quite pleased, but would never have made the purchase for full price in my post-money conscious STT playstyle, so the discount worked on me. Got to open a few extra packs, which I kinda miss doing.

    I do see where the offer was deceptive, with the crew listed wrong. I am sure CS will address that for anyone affected, esp with that screenshot in circulation.
  • I'd say it was a good offer with bad timing.

    This might be a good addition to the Tuesday lineup, but it needs to be a little clearer (and more accurate) as to which packs are being offered.

    From a new player perspective, this would be a viable offer - a chance to FF a character for the event (or others), and time to level prior to the event starting. Existing players might pick it up to FF. Players with the characters already fused aren't out anything.

    there is a possible other negative here, Sela seems to be the one that drops easiest, the 5 pack ff her so now I don't have to push for rank - I know I won't get Picard, so I will effectively be 130k and out (hoping to do most via shuttles) - this may have an impact on the community rewards if this applies to a lot of people.

    I agree with this 100%! New players would benefit the strongest, exisiting might pick up those extra stars for the legends if they buy on a whim or need honor.

    Agreed... that game was the BOMB and the first amazing 2 player game I can remember as a kid

    My wife and I just signed all the paperwork on a home mortgage. The title company rep was genuinely shocked that we read everything, because apparently nobody bothers to do that. Cue our jaws dropping.

    As such, I can’t bring myself to feel at all surprised that so many people managed to screw up a special offer in a mobile game. Whether it’s $10 or $500k, people can’t seem to muster the resolve to read words or look at pictures right in front of them.

    I was fooled. But not disappointed bought on my second account too knowing what it had. I am not disappointed at all with any discounted previous event offers. Though I must admit the remorse I have is with the quality of the legendary crew in offer.

    In my main account I got three Rikers. At this point getting three legendaries for $9.99 and one that has week base stats, I saw an immediate benefit to doubling up offer and bought it on my main. I bought it to thank DB for the offer and the success I had in the packs.

    If I had the success on my second account I might have bought the double up offer. However, there was no benefit in having a 2F Riker over a 1F Riker. I actually decided to level a FF Sela instead (My second, who does not seem to be used in event, however, she does count for one more immortalized crew for achievement)

    It’s only deceptive if you don’t read the description before you buy. Don’t get me wrong - it’s odd that they would put in the old packs with Ambassador Spock and Mintakan Riker - but this is not a torches-and-pitchforks situation.

    Except the description listed the current event crew not the older event crew. New update was supposed to help buyers be more aware of what we're buying.

    I clearly recall being told Not to look at pics over the info listed. What if the info disclosed is incorrect?

    Hold on a minute. The Falcon Falls pack initially included Romulan Picard as the 5*... the image was Mintakan Riker, but in the info tab the legendary name was ROMULAN PICARD.... they made a mistake.... people purchased the offer and then realized that DB got it wrong before correcting it

    Same here. Also when I buy new cars. I read everything. The salesman said he never had someone do that before. I said you better get some coffee cuz it’s happening

    The red flag would have been that the current event isn’t called The Falcon Falls and that the proper event pack has the exact same crew. Why post two differently named packs with the exact same contents?

    Why? Uh, because DB.

    Why is anything illogical in this game? If that's the measuring stick the entire game needs red flagging. And back to square one because it loses significance.

    The dilemma is not buying what is clearly listed because of being cautious but then by the time you may get a reply to a ticket the offer is no longer available.

    DB should stand by what they present as the product for sale. Not have the burden on players to double check errors.

    I agree players are responsible to check listed info. I don't think they are responsible to double check it's not erroneous.

  • They got me too. I did get 2 x 5 star from the 5 packs so I did not stay mad for long.
  • I saw what they had. and went for it. Sela was FFFE, but I needed stars on Minitanken Riker. Got one, and a star on someone else.
