Complaint about C-Store Offers
 
As a fan of STO and someone who has purchased ALL of the C-Store content (Except the Klingon Ships), I feel I must show my frustration at the latest 50% offer. I am very unhappy that I can't purchase the ships without reaching the required rank. As a busy person I have no opportunity to raise my level quickly enough to purchase these ships. I did try, having had 4 days of work, I created a new Klingon Charchter and worked on it constantly in the hope that I would be able to take advantage of this offer.

With less than two hours to go, I have only reached BG1, this stops me from purchasing the ships.

My complaint is this :- I understand that the ships are only available to LG Klingons to use in game but we should be able to purchase them and take advantage when these offers come along. As a user who has purchased 2 Lifetime subscriptions plus over 6 different versions of STO to get the exclusive content as well as someone who has achieved the top referral rewards I am very upset at this situation.

If anyone from Cryptic ever reads this forum, I would like to inform you that I will no longer purchase any C-Store items because of this and feel very let down. I have supported this game since beta and feel that the only thing Cryptic has done has fleeced me. I understand the need for micro transactions as a business model but feel that I am being disadvantaged as a casual gamer who can't be online all the time to raise my chars to the required levels.

Sorry for the long post fellow forum members but I am very p'd at this.

Next time you might actually read the OP that clearly states that is not possible to buy anything unless a character meets the requirements, which is max level in case of the klingon ships. :rolleyes:

I am not sure you read that correctly. They were speaking about a Klingon toon.

I thought about exactly this issue during the weekend after I finished buying all the ships for my Federation characters and eventually reached the conclusion that I would simply have to wait with my KDF purchases for the next few sales by-which I'll probably have a max-level KDF character. No worries, I have a LTS, I can wait. ;)

Your not alone in this complaint. There are many people upset about this and they mostly just post so in the chat box in the game, which does not do anything helpful. You can hear from some more people, that are annoyed (including myself) about the same thing, that are posting in the forums in my thread here: http://forums.startrekonline.com/sho...d.php?t=213431

Or maybe it's just another carrot on the stick? Make you PLAY MORE in hopes of reaching the level *required*.:mad:

Look at this from Cryptic's point of view- if you HAD been able to purchase said ship short of the level you need- how many would scream about that? Can you imagine how many would flip out being unable to use a purchased ship until level met?
