# 1 New ships should be free
07-14-2010, 02:22 PM
The new ships should be free, not put in the c-store. I understand it helps raise money for the game which is a good thing for future development. Bridges, ship skins, special ships (gal X) and other fluffy stuff do belong in the c-store but new ships that really should have been in the game at launch being put in the c-store is not cool at all. You ask what ships we want to see added to the game first then pull a 180 and say now you must pay for them, not cool. Instead just put them in the game, make them unlockable or using merits to get them. As I write this I kinda get the feeling that the budget department has already spoken and usually means that's final.

Not neccessary. Please tell me how it is that everyone else can do it? It's greed, plain and simple.

simple lieke they had been dooing since before the galaxy x got put in the shop and the low level promotinal connie..., like the skins for sci ships and escorts and cruisers they all in there. This is just how they promised it should but , but the new ships and such is like a huge backstab and slap in the face atleast to me.. And trust me its not the money its the principle of saying one thing then dooing the other....

Mostly, by charging for major content updates like we're getting free this month.

Shame on Cryptic> How dare they try to make money from customers. What dark evil force is this that sells us this game and it's fluff items. They should be spending all their time and energy to provide a free game play experience to all the downtrodden trekkies of the world.



It's been pretty clear from the get go, if you see something in the C-Store, it only exists because of the C-Store. If you don't want to buy it, you don't have to. If you want the C-Store to go away, then so does all the fluff.

The C-Store is not going away, the idea that it should be filled with only things that no one wants is laughable. So many people say they will stop playing this game rather then being nickel and dimed to death. Well why are you still here? It's been going on since launch, it's not going to change, and you all still keep buying this crap in the C-Store right after you get done crying about how you shouldn't have to.

What you are not taking into consideration is that STO's other faction isn't getting the same development. Developing items for the C-store, such as ship skins, is development time that could/should have been used to add new klingon content, for example new ships.

Klingons have somewhere around 20 ship skins covering from Lt to BG, feds have 36. This does not include the C-store skins or the Gal-X. So far 7 skins have been added for fed ships, with another 2 announced, as well as 3 retrofit ships, that is an additional 12 ships, 6 of which will have unique abilities. What has Cryptic done for the Klingon faction? They've added 1 extra ship, a carrier, which is the least popular class amongst Klingons. Instead of developing ships for the C-store they could have added a further 8-12 ships to the Klingon faction.

I have an idea make up their own design instead of making money off of someone else's work. why don't release those ships, and make skins for those ships. make a C-store non canon skin for an updated excelsior. But they should put Iconic, and canon ships in the game.

That is a great idea...considering how one can get around liscensing issues and copyright patents these days.
