Please add LOWER LEVEL ships to the C-Store!
 
The C-Store really needs some lower level ships added to it, and not just Admiral ships. This is just plain disappointing.

With Dstahl's statement that the upcoming T5 Galaxy, Intrepid, and Defiant will be free I'm hoping that other lower Tier ship skins will also be added to the game rather then the C-Store.

Unfortunately Cryptic have created a culture of paid for content with this game.
While for now it's fluff, it's still virtually the only new content being added to the game apart from the tedious STFs.

The worst thing is that through their manipulations with the referal program, the c-store is becoming the least objectionable way to access new content, with people literally begging for the Galaxy X to be added to the c-store!
Of course as a game balance affecting ship, the Galaxy X should be available in-game but Cryptic insist we not only pay a monthly fee, not only must we pay for new content, we must also sell the game to others!

This goes far beyond the paid-for new areas in CO and yet some people don't see it.

I can't see the point of lower tier ships in the C-Store. With leveling as fast as it is I think you'd just outgrow it long before you got your money's worth. Now, an Admiral tier you will be using for a while so I think that's worth the purchase. I say add lower tiers to the game itself and save C-Store for Admiral skins and other fluff.

The Excelsior should be Tier 2. The Nebula and Ambassador would rightly fall in between Tiers 3 and 4, so they could go in either.

Umm... You do know there are a plethora of games that have a cash store and a pay per month scheme.
Like... Games from way before STO and CO.

So Cryptic did not start anything.

I also don't believe in UFO abductions.


I hate to admit it, but I'm not a fan of the current STO C-Store policies at the moment.

In CO, everything was accolade unlockable. With the new accolade system only now coming to Tribble, I can only hope Cryptic rectifies the situation by placing ALL current C-Store items in as accolade rewards.

Then again , I suspect some people will still moan endlessly about how the rich can just buy their way through the game and don't have to work for the rewards, likely in threads complaining about the accolade rewards being tooo haaard to get... But I could be pleasantly surprised.

Why lower tier ships , you out level them in a day or two.
Unless they add more ships for free ofcourse (and they should)
I think they should add more ship parts to every ship in every tier personally.
