How about something better?

Stop Offering Lifetime Subscriptions.

It's simple really; Cryptic lost a lot of money off of the huge rush of people who went for the LTS, and even the yearly and 6 month subscriptions, because we're not dumb and realize "hey, it IS cheaper to do it this way." If they stopped selling those (and with the yearly/6 month people, only continued to offer those people those subscription plans) they would be charging new people monthly, and they wouldn't lose more monthly subscriptions when people can finally drop the money on a LTS or greater. Maybe open the doors for those subscriptions again in a year or two (if the game is still around by then). Then, they keep making money so that they can put more stuff in the actual game rather than in their C-Store.
