Those who say you don't either don't play F2P games or know how to grin and spend the point in the right way.
I understand that 500 emblem seem steep, but it does keep you playing. The C-Store is there for people who have to get it right now and are not patient enough to wait and save up for what they want. A lot of games are starting to do both the monthly payments and a store. There are also games doing both F2P and Pay 2 Play.
Nothing is free, there is always a price to pay. The real question is, is it worth the price to you.
It is worth it to me. I like STO and it has improve greatly since it start and it will only get better.
you really have a bad idea on this ! yes cryptic is a business and yes making money is a must, but keep in mind that paying a monthly fee will do that for them! paying extra for some things don't make me cry like crazy either as long as it is "some" things, don't you see that we got more c-store stuff then content for this game don't this makes you at-least a little mad? not to say the stuff we did got its half bugged (example: stf's)
And give me proof of other games that wield a monthly fee and have a c-store alike?! i love that people always refer to other games but never say witch game. its all steam and words you want yourself to be fooled with maybe to make you feel better about your c-store addiction.
oh and yes F2P don't mean you get all things ingame for fee, we all know that a F2P games restrict a player from things "hence the c-store" to unlock that for the players!! your blinded "as most of the Star Trek Fans" you don't mind paying extra! but a normal player might see this as exploitation of the player base witch it is btw.
PS: i'm a fan and have almost all things from the c-store but that don't takes away that i don't see the problem. i know i'm exploited, its my one weakness i absolutely want all items i feel incomplete in this game otherwise. its stupid i know but i bet that 80% of the fan base is like this, only a few see the danger of it.
