Wow, the C-Store gets greedier and greedier. I'm getting worried.

400 points for 2 extra bridge officer slots... on ONE character.
400 points for 2 extra costume slots... on ONE character.
400 points for 2 extra ship slots... on ONE character.
Uh, Cryptic? That's low down and dirty - everything has been for ALL your characters and now you're trying to pull even MORE money by raising the prices and making these features only affect ONE character? You realize I LOVE your game and have like 6-7 characters that I play. This is a complete SLAP IN THE FACE.
EVERYONE wants extra costume pieces and knowing that your "marketing department" made it for a single character so that people would have to spend A LOT of money to get extra slots for all their characters.
That's low. I was ready to drop 1200 points TODAY to get all this stuff, now I'm ready to drop 0 points. Maybe in the future, who knows. But the difference is between NEEDING and WANTING. I WANTED.
I might NEED the character slots because I roleplay a lot, but that means you will eventually get 400 points instead of 1200.
I don't even see why anyone would buy anything of that anyway. I mean we've all got plenty of BOs, you only need 4 for away teams and 5 at skillcap to man your ship. With Season 2 you get an extra clothing slot anyway, and an extra ship slot.
I honestly don't see the use of any of those new features to tell you all the truth...
