TECHNICALLY SPEAKING A GAME DOESN'T LAUNCH UNTIL IT IS IN STORES AND WIDELY AVAILABLE TO THE MASSES. AS IT STANDS WE ARE ALLOWED EARLY ACCESS BECAUSE WE PRE-ORDERED SO TO US, PERHAPS, IT HAS LAUNCHED. GENERALLY SPEAKING, HOWEVER, IT WILL NOT LAUNCH UNTIL TUESDAY.

ALSO, USING ALL CAPS doesn't make you cool.

I have purcahsed a lifetime subscription as well as paid for a pre-order. So yes I am a paying customer at this point.
You're a paid customer who will not be making any future payments on the game, sans expansion packs. So if I were to take the cynic route I could argue that since Cryptic already has all the money they're going to get out of you, they have no incentive to listen to what you have to say.

One of the reasons for my descission to make a pre-launch purchase of STO was the headstart offered for doing so. However, due to STO server issues, I have not been able to play the "headstart" as advertised. I feel that Cryptic should compensate those of us who have been suffering through this something "in game". Either X number of skill points or credits or merits.
You know, I was all about to get on your ass for demanding they give us a free month. But... some extra credits wouldn't hurt. It'd temporarily throw the in-game economy off, but capitalism has a way of balancing out.

Something. We are not advancing our charactors as promised with our Pro-order Headstart. What do you, the other customers of this mmo, think?
After hearing your idea, sir, I agree.
