I am glad to see a bonus on Crowns purchaces. Since I just bout 13,750 crowns for $25.00 yesterday (6/12/13) I missed out on the extra 2,750 Free that became available today (6/13/13). . I was in such a hurry to buy the new Aquila ships equipment that I missed the bonus. No worries though, everyone is a day late and a dollar short sometimes. I hope everyone takes advantage of this awesome deal because, believe me, if I had the money to I would purchase another $25 worth. See you in the Spiral Captains.

As with most things in the crown shop, (the possible exception being the eye-patches) there is always something that drops in the game that is better. If not, there would be no reason to play! The reason you might spend crowns is for convenience: if your ship has better equipment, farming the top tier is easier and you can get to that point faster. That's how real money shops should work, in my opinion. If you could simply buy the best items, that wouldn't be any fun.

I agree wholeheartedly. I bought one ship and outfitted it from the crown shop, then I started farming the ship bosses in Aquila. In one evening I got enough stuff that matched the crown shop stuff point for point to outfit two more ships . Plus I got some items that you cannot buy for any money or crowns, the fleet boosting sails and stuff. Yes the crown shop is useful but not necessary by any means.
