Have you taken advantage of the 5* Citation discount?

edited July 2021 in The Bridge
With all the furore over other incidents on 'Tuesday' (or Wednesday if you happen to be on another part of the planet) this hasn't been discussed.

What does the forum think of the discounted 5* citation?

Personally, I wish they'd discount the 4* citation so I could clear some slots and I might save the honour for the next honour sale

I did try to make a poll for this but, bugs.

    I did, as a matter of fact.
    About a week ago I scored Braxton in a behold and I also happen to have the polestars necessary to guarantee another copy and just need the credits to retrieve him, so it seemed like a good discount to jump on. 👍
  • Ivanstone, for me honor sales are a way to turn honor pulls into 550 honor so they are a complete waste of honor, citations are guaranteed to give you the star on the card you want.

    I have no pressing needs for Legendary citations. I'm only close to one collection threshold and it can be completed by a 4* currently sitting at 3/4.

    I'd rather just wait till the next honour sale which is a more efficient use of honour. If the citations were cheeper I probably would've bought some.

    Agreed, a pull and a citation for 40K...of course the way things go around here now, the next honor sale will be Novembuary eleveenteenth, 2023 and the price won't be discounted, it will be raised to 60K and you get no begold..... :|

    Plus a fee of 50 Quatloos just to enter the honor hall!

    I don't really need citations, but it looks like a fair deal (not as good a an honor sale, but whatever). I would have bought something if the discount would include SR citations. I need more of those, but the 18k price is rarely worth it.

    No need for legendary citations right now (sitting on 30+) but I'd love an SR citation sale.

    I was disappointed the discount was only 10k, so I may or may not buy any. Haven't really decided. I have always thought 50k was way, way too much for a gold citation - the fair normal price should be in the 30k range. So this "sale" doesn't seem like a real sweet deal to me, honestly. So I'll continue to wait. If another Honor Sale never comes, I am not really losing out on much spending another 10k per cite.

    Last honour sale most of my pulls added stars to existing crew. I did add a few crew that were at least part of collections. The previous sale was similar. There was one crew that wasn't part of a collection (Juliana Tainer) but she has excellent stats and was eventually made part of a collection.

    My current focus is the Costumed Collection. I need 21 5* and 2 4* Citations to get the next threshold. If I spent my honour I would have 5 citations. I'm not closer on any other collection. Its just better to wait and see what the game gives me over the next couple months.

    Yes, I’m working on citing up a card and was getting close to 40k. This sale puts me 10k closer to my next cite when I earn that. The card I just cited today may also start making some of my shuttles so I’m happy there was a discount.
  • GitssacGitssac ✭✭✭
    I agree with Travelling Man - at 30k I would have bitten, but 40k is worse value than honor sale so I’d rather sit on my horde until the next cite+behold sale
  • No.

    I'd agree with those wanting a deal on 4* cites. I get plenty of 5* in honor sales, and need more 4* cites to close-off event crew without community rewards.

    I used four yesterday and still have some. 4* I could see getting a few, as well.

  • Adding to the sentiment about 4* citations, I have heaps lingering at 3/4 that need some love!

    I was actually hoping for a 3* cite discount too. I’m finally convinced that we’ll never get another way to finish CO Sisko. 😜 (Yes, I know this is the only way. I just can’t bring myself to spend 9K honor for a freezer card when I still need 600+ stars on my legendary crew. At least he’s useful for tanking shuttles.)

    I originally expected to jump on the discount 5* cite, but so far I haven’t. Have enough honor for three, but I’m torn about the immediate value vs future honor sale value.

    Yep, had just over 80k honor and bought two.

    I'm really enjoying the more regular honor sales. Previously I hoarded between them, and saw this massive power hikes each time. But I'd much rather get smaller, more frequent bumps. I also don't mind spending 40k on a cite even if it doesn't come with a begold. The begold is nice, but the cite is where I personally find most of the value.

    I still have some Gold cites from the last honour sale but wouldn't have minded some 4* cites. Plenty of 3/4 SRs taking up space right now.

    I have experienced this bug also. The workaround is to enter one option, then try to post the poll. It tells you that you cannot post a poll with only one option and pops up the second option. From there, it functions correctly and adds a blank line each time you enter an option.

  • Unfortunately, as these things go, I had JUST PURCHASED 3x Gold Cites and a Begold a few days before they announced this! That left me with just enough to get another cite at the discount, but it frustrated me that this is the second time that has happened. The first time was right before the first honor sale the same thing happened.
