Yes. We'll be reviewing the content and prices of goods on offer in the C-store. This includes prices for ships at all tiers. There are currently no plans to increase the price of any premium ship. For now, we know that some previously purchasable playable species will soon be free (Ferengi, Rigelian, Pakled, Tellarite), and others (Liberated Borg, Joined Trill, Federation Klingons) will be earned through other means. If you have already unlocked access to any C-store items, including playable species, you will retain that access in the free-to-play transition.
So.... Have plans changed then ?

Currently on Tribble:

Excelsior Cruiser Retrofit T3
  • 800 CStore Points
  • Used to be EC only

Excelsior Cruiser Retrofit T5
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points

Multi-Vector Advanced Escort
  • 2000 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore points

Vulcan D'Kyr
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points

B'rel Bird-of-Prey Retrofit
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points

Kar'Fi Battle Carrier
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points

Marauder Patrol Cruiser
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points

Varanus Fleet Support Vessel
  • 1600 CStore Points
  • Used to be 1200 CStore Points


While some ships have also come down (thanks for that):
TOS USS Enterprise - Down 560 points
Rhode Island - Down 400 points

Still, this being said, FAR more ships have gone up in price than down.

And we don't even have access to all the CStore ships yet !

Cryptic, what the heck is going on ? I understand that this is the first iteration of the F2P CStore, but to so blatantly go against what you own FAQ says is simply mind boggling !

Especially when *EVERYTHING* else, with the exception of the Services (so far) has ALSO gone up !

Can we get an explanation please ?
