Why would Cryptic do that?

Why would any retailer tell prospective customers "Don't give us full price for this thing today. If you can do without it for just three weeks, we will have it on sale and you can give us less money for the same thing"?

Well first off most retailers that have flyers put them out a few days before the sale starts to let you know whats going to be on sale. Also, they give you usually a 30 day money-back guaruntee something i doubt cryptic would do. That happened to me with another game called fiesta. I bought something at full price then within 24 hours it went on sale and they said sorry we wont give you difference back which a normal retailer with good business practices would have done.

YES! Let's not tell the people so we can trap one person into paying the full price instead of giving people a 3 weeks notice so that those that couldn't normally afford product X now may be able to plan and work it into their budget... BRILLIANT!

Man, you're an economics genius...

If they do plan on that I just hope for a very early notice beforehand and that it will last atleast a few weeks, so everyone that plan on buying gets the chance.

There is traditionally no notice about lifetime sales (or zen sales, ship sales, etc.) before it happens for the already mentioned reason.

I know that by now, hence the "hope". :)

Since the game went F2P in January 2012 there have been two lifetime sales: June 5-29 and October 9-November 12, corresponding with graduations and the instant veteran rewards perks.

Stahl has stated they plan on having a couple of lifetime sub sales per year. I'd speculate that there'll be one by or around May since they have said there are new perks for gold subscribers with their next big update.
