New ships should be free
 
The new ships should be free, not put in the c-store. I understand it helps raise money for the game which is a good thing for future development. Bridges, ship skins, special ships (gal X) and other fluffy stuff do belong in the c-store but new ships that really should have been in the game at launch being put in the c-store is not cool at all. You ask what ships we want to see added to the game first then pull a 180 and say now you must pay for them, not cool. Instead just put them in the game, make them unlockable or using merits to get them. As I write this I kinda get the feeling that the budget department has already spoken and usually means that's final.

Not neccessary. Please tell me how it is that everyone else can do it? It's greed, plain and simple.

simple lieke they had been dooing since before the galaxy x got put in the shop and the low level promotinal connie..., like the skins for sci ships and escorts and cruisers they all in there. This is just how they promised it should but , but the new ships and such is like a huge backstab and slap in the face atleast to me.. And trust me its not the money its the principle of saying one thing then dooing the other....

I have an idea make up their own design instead of making money off of someone else's work. why don't release those ships, and make skins for those ships. make a C-store non canon skin for an updated excelsior. But they should put Iconic, and canon ships in the game.

And since when do we have to start spoon feeding Cryptics? It sounds like you are encouraging Cryptics to keep introducing posibly "game changing" ships via C-Store. It's like you are asking the municipalities to tax you more. I don't understand.

That is a great idea...considering how one can get around liscensing issues and copyright patents these days.

That's true..I feel its a monetary issue...I posted in a different forum about that thought. My feeling is that they should be focusing on customer satisfaction first, and then the bottom line. As it is how much in profits do they need to keep operating? Did someone accidentally leave the water running over the weekend and now they are worried about a big bill?...lol Put some items in the cryptic store, and that'll keep us solvent....
