Subscriber/Veteran Perk that is actually good.
 
I would love to see some really good perks come out for Subscribers who have been playing this game for years.


The are 3 things on my personal wish list are:

1. A 1,400 day reward that allows all Bound To Character items to become Bound To Account.
2. A Dilithium Tribble which allows us to refine an additional 8,000 dilithium per day.
3. A D'Deredex Warbird which can be owned by UFP and KDF players.

Other long term players may have even better idea.

2.Yes,but i believe that all LFTs,and Month to Month should get a boost,LFT should get 12k a day and MtM 10k

3.Romulan Faction will get the D'Deridex

Subscriptions aren't the money makers any more. It's lockboxes and C-store packs. Sad to say, but I doubt additional effort would be put into persuading people to subscribe, particularly after the LTS sale, which seemed like a last-ditch attempt. Why give perks and features to subscribers when they can monetize them and even more people will buy them? (example, Mining claims, Jem upgrade).

Interesting to note that there's never been a LTS sale for CO, only STO. I don't know how much that says, but it's something to throw into the mix.

CO does however actually offer more to subscribers then STO does. You need to subscribe to have freeform characters, that or pay $50 per slot, and even then those slots don't offer everything you get with a subscription.

Not true -- I not only have a LTS to Champions Online, when I bought it I got access to the STO Beta... And if you're saying it's never been on sale (as in a price reduction) I believe they've had those as well.

IMO, the veteran reward system is finished. They could change it so every $15 worth of zen purchased and transferred to STO gives one veteran token. Of course, subscribers and lifers get one veteran token per month. Then they could have various items purchased by veteran tokens in a veteran store. So a piece of a costume could be worth 1 token and a ship could be worth 12 tokens. The current veteran rewards are given out as regular veteran rewards for subscribers and lifers, but F2Pers that have spent enough $ on Zen can purchase the veteran rewards. For example, spending $200 on Zen could get a F2Per the Chimera and its KDF counterpart for their account.

It was never reduced in price like it was for STO. It was cheaper when it first came out, only $200 vs the $300 it is now. But after they changed it to $300 it's never come down in price. There was actually a bit of a heated discussion about that on the CO boards the last time they offered a sale of the STO LTS.

hmm
 
The entire point of this thread was for people to post "wish list" items for veteran rewards but as usual we have folks poo pooing ideas instead of offering any of their own.

Try to avoid the endless forum negativity and go positive with some cool ideas. Granted none of these will probably ever happen, but it is nice to offer ideas anyway.

I'd like a Mirror Skin for my Chimera. :D

The thing is that any veteran reward would be automatically given to lifers so it doesn't matter if it is 1500, 2000, or 5000 days. This means that any veteran reward after 1000 days is effectively a lifer perk since if any subscriber that is eligible for them, then they are insane. Therefore only future vet rewards under 800 day would be considered as a veteran reward since that is about when F2P came out. So the only options for the devs is to completely change the veteran system so more players like F2Pers can get the benefits or add future rewards like creating 50,150,250, etc vet rewards. Either way more players would get benefits from the change to the veteran reward system.
