3. What's next ???
This is greatly reducing the number of players renewing subscriptions along with the game being underdeveloped.
The way cryptic are going they will only have LTS players left which i'm sure they can't survive on.
1.) Extra BO Slots are still available by level. They didn't remove those, just added MORE if the 10 that you get wasn't enough.
2.) New ships are still available via in-game currency. The Tactical Refit, the Cruiser Refit, the Interpid (science) refit are all available for 300 Emblems at VA. Excelsior T3 is purchaseable with energy credits are Commander Rank. The Nebula will likely (though its not confirmed yet) also be purchasable with Emblems or some such. I think they are still running the 5 friend referral for the Galaxy X as well.
