One issue is that veteran rewards have a sort of power creep issue. Each reward has to be progressively more awesome than the last, or else it's kinda pointless. The 1000 day reward was a ship. Ships are the ultimate thing in this game, there is nothing more significant. And that ship, especially the battle cloaking Klingon version, is one of the best in the game. What else can you do that's more awesome than that, but doesn't break the game? At some point there has to be a limit.

So, vet rewards have hit the peak of what they're going to be. If you're a monthly Gold member, you need to assess whether the continued perks of subscribing are still worth it going forward. Zen stipend, extra bank/inventory space on new characters, etc. If you're a lifer, you really can't complain about what you're paying for since you probably haven't paid a dime in sub fees for the last three years. Your LTS broke even for Cryptic after 20 months.

Would it be nice if Cryptic kicked some new vet rewards out? Sure, who'd argue with that? Lobi would be cool. Whatever. I just don't think we should feel entitled to anything.
