Can some of the people at cryptic please find a way to bad these accounts. I've gotten over 50 friggin messages since beta wanting me to buy credits for real world cash. I DON'T WANT IT AND I DON'T LIKE GETTING SPAM IN A GAME THAT I HAVE PAID FOR.

Thank you.

When you get total crap drops like an 'engine battery' for killing a battleship, you can be assured some will buy it..

If Cryptic had any concept of 'Risk = Reward' in the game, there would be no reason for people to buy it...
IMHO

Agreed, while in one of the Iota sector Deep Space Enoucnters, two other players and myself came across a "Dreadnaught" which we had never seen before.. So we attacked it.. 5 minutes laters.. (YES, 5 MINUTES) we had managed to kill it. ONe of the longest and BEST fights I've seen in this game so far.. we got exactly 1 Shield Battery and 1 Engine Battery...

I mean seriously.. any enemy that powerfull that we were never able to take down its shields.. we killed it with bleed through damage alone.. and all we got was 2 crappy batteries.. that should have been a named purple or something..

Every mmo has it. Just wait till the 8th, when everyone needs a retail account to log in. ATM, all they have done is pre-order multiple copies, get the key, then cancel the pre-order. Soon as you need a registered retail key to play, you wont see any more. And of you do it will be the players fault for allowing their accounts to be keylogged.

On that note, remember, in all liklihood, they wont return your stuff should you get hacked.

They don't need a retail key to send spam, if they use the PM in the forum they can send to any account and it will show up in STO. Try it! you will see

According to CO, once your game account is locked for nonpayment so is your forums account. I will know for sure in another 2.5 weeks since I canceled my CO account for various reasons.

You guys do realise there is NO economy in STO right?

These gold sellers are preying on the ignorant right now, but in about 3-4 weeks when your all admirals and captains and have bought your last item you'l be sitting there wondering what your gonna spend all that energy cred on...

If anything it will become a running joke about how many energy creds you have "banked"

So far every 10 levels when I get a new ship.. I check the exchange to see if there is some slightly better equipment then what I currently have from just loot drops.. usually there isn't. I have racked up 400k+ credits.. not counting the credits I HAVE spent on the 3-4 things I did buy.. I am 10 levels from cap.. which I'll be at in probably another day.. what will I buy then?

Please level up some more and just ignore the gold sellers, because THEY aren't ruining the economy that simply doesn't exist in the first place...
