Why do we have a thread for a thread?

lol. Galaxy X is obtainable in the game, though. You just have to convince five other suc... I mean, people... to buy the game, then subscribe to it.

Argument's invalid, lol

That is how some have done it...most likely purchased 5 boxes then payed for 5 one month subs {in some way, shape, or form}. Not unlike those that purchased several options to get all the "exclusives" that are now available in the C-Store. If we learned anything in the past couple of days we can expect to see the Galaxy X in the C-Store in the near future.

However, "suckers" indeed...I lose respect for this staff more and more each day. Glad to know nothing in this game has any meaning....and trivialization/diffusion is the rule of the day.

And I am going to laugh so freaking hard when that day comes, and a dozen posts go up in the space of 5 seconds screaming bloody murder about how they wasted $400 for something that got put up on C-Store for maybe $25.

Heck, I bet we even get a screamer post from one of them that'll turn out to be the aforementioned 5 copies of the game for exclusives, and just had to shell out $75 for the subscriptions on top of what he already paid for the exclusives.

Stormshade's response in another thread indicated the majority wanted it on the C-store. By that logic, as soon as the majority wants it available in game they will get their wish.

Aye...lol. What is even more funny is that those that shelled out for all the "box sets" initially to get all the "exclusives" were the ones most likely {at least probability dictates this to be so} to also be the same people that essentially purchased their Gal. X via the 5 x 5 method lol.

To be fair all I ever bought was the Pre-order/Atari DDE...and would be lying if I said it had nothing to do with the "exclusives" that came with that package. Anyone that knows me personally or in the game knows I have no ego...or subscribes to childish games of comparing and contrasting {"keeping up with the Jones' "}, but I do feel cheated to a degree....and totally sympathize with those whom were against the money grab by Cryptic.

Not a big deal really...but I did have some moron in game ask me why I just bought a joined Trill...even though clearly I was lvl 45 and could not have done that in 2 days. Moves like this trivialize and diffuse everyone and everything. Anyways no biggy....what is good for the goose is good for the gander. And like many others have said I will never again trust anything Cryptic says...and I will never again invest in any future projects they release.

I expected this...and yes we were "warned"...but no one expected it so soon. Well I am just a lowly 1-month recurring subscriber...so I can vote with my feet anytime. God knows the reasons for doing so are mounting.

I have been working to get the gal X. Only have two more to go. If I do get it and then they put it on the c-store. I won't be mad. Oh I am sure someone will blow a gasket over it but it won't be me. :)
