So you would have given them more money in the long run ?
Let me tell you that ALOT of Gold subbers are thinking fast right now and doing maths.
And how do those maths work out as a Win/Win ?
There were folks who subbed close to 1000 days and they gave Cryptic $800+ , just by their sub .
Now Cryptic is selling the same "game time / experience" for $200-300 .
Sure it might be worth it for the player , but is it worth it to Cryptic ?
Not to mention , how many subbers are thinking : "well now I don't have to pay any more !" .
Do you know how wrong that is (unless you treat STO like a second job) ?
So in the end you're telling the players to "support Cryptic" , but on the other hand you're pro-LTS (
which takes away a lot of money from Cryptic
on the long run , because subs make Cryptic more money on the long run) .
So which is it ?
