As somebody else mentioned earlier in this thread, if you don't have Money or Time in abundance, you are not an MMO's target audience.
I think it's pretty obvious that this Winter Event is an effort to get people online and playing, instead of Cryptic's usual apparent tactic of getting people online and shopping. I think it's a refreshing change of pace, and I hope this little experiment works out for them so that we can see more similarly-motivated events in the future.
Did you know that I'm on every day, have 4 level 50 toons, 5 more at various levels plus I have acquired multiple copies of
lockbox ships from farming dilithium and EC? No, of course not. You
you know me well enough to think I have a sense of entitlement from one of my posts and feel it necessary to cast judgement. You don't know me and I can assure you you never will.
PWE doesn't need to encourage me to spend time in game as I already do. Me wanting a ship to be tradeable due to spending time with the family during the holidays (hardly abnormal behaviour) is a rational and reasonable request.
