- If the cost of getting the equipment needed to be competitive is too high, it can not be a fair game.

Now where the lines are drawn, I'll not take upon myself to judge. How disturbing to gameplay is too disturbing? What cost is too high? (money/time) I'm not saying. I'm just laying out the formula.
Yes, I was agreeing with you.. "where in all that does STO fail"... In addition to your summary, I was also adding moral/ethical concerns.... i.e. if cryptic has become a powercreep that is gouging the player base for money and their methods (some of them very questionable) in doing so.
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"
