It is amazing that Cryptic did not apparently consider this most reasonable and dare I saw easy to conceive of idea. I also wondered the same.

This way, the fanatical will spend lots of money, the gullible will do lots of recruiting, and then the patient will cash in later in the C-Store.
Dont be so quick to assume that position. Remember many people purchased six and seven copies of the game to get all the goodies. Shoot I would buy five copies if the G-X was worth it to me to be frank.
