Thats right, anyone who buys lifetime should get 10% off all c store items.
Not going to happen, the C-Store is the only way Cryptic can get money out of lifetime members since we dont pay subscriptions. After a year we are a net loss for Cryptic thus the C-Store mitigates that loss for lifers that buy stuff. You think they are going to offer a discount ?
Certainly, some Lifer reward should be offered. Let's have a comparison, shall we?
If I buy a Lifer (which I have), I have spent approx. £220. And I have the game for life, whether I play it or not. Blue forum name, special in-game combadge, Aegima Nebula access. Hardly a thrill a minute.
If I just buy 3 months worth, say (ample time to become an Admiral), that's about £30. Hmm....and although I haven't got any of the lifer bonuses, I would actually be better off as I only spent around £30 and I could then return, should I want to later.
But people have cancelled after 3 months, becuase of lack of end-game content.
