Galaxy-X! w00t!
 
2000 Cryptic Points. Is this a joke? That's insulting.

The Galaxy-X, a SINGLE freakin' ship, costs more than the GAME ITSELF (which you can get for like $15!).

This is microtransactions gone TOO FAR!

The only reason I'd ever want to see a Microtransaction go up that high is if like half or 75% of the money went straight to a donation fund for some good program (Make a Wish or something). But THIS expensive?




STO Microtransactions have officially gone too far.

Theres nothing micro about that. Perhaps its a test, and if "successful" they'll just stop releasing "free" content and put everything on the C-store.

While still charging subscription fees.

Though if they don't charge a rather hefty price there would be a whole new round of uproar from those that got it through the referal program, even though those people would be able to buy it three or four times with the C-points they were given as compensation.

The price is OK, it equals the 5x400 Cryptic Points you will get for 5 upgraded&paid Referrals.

EDIT:
And others paid 225$ for it (no pity here...) and we will be able to get the galaxy-x for a fraction of it.

How is my statement ridiculous some people bought their ship for 225 dollars others spent hours of their time talking to people to recruit them then hours in game helping them. Now you can get it for a lousy 25 bucks and you're crying it's too much. I think my post sums it up pretty well. Have a coke and a smile :D

Yeah, paying 225 $ for a virtual item is a completely normal course of action, and playing the game with other people has to be a horrible pain.:rolleyes: And people don't complain because it's too much. They complain because the Galaxy-X simply isn't worth it.

Where does it say 2000 Cryptic Points? I don't see it anywhere so I don't know where you're getting that figure from. For what it's worth, the TOS Enterprise was 800 so I don't see how this is insulting compared to that. To be clear, I'm not doubting your on the 2000 points but I can't see where you found it. Links? It isn't shown in game to me or on the site..
