But if they don't keep putting stuff in the C-Store, how will they empty the pockets of the 30 day game hopping locusts before they cancel ?
Lets start with those 30 day game hopping loctust:
Ever stop to think that maybe they cancel because they see all the loot in the C-store?
If I were a new subscriber, I'd cancel too. There are how many MMO's out there with 10 times better loot tables and options than STO does. Froma customer service perspective I wouldn't stick around either.
... It angers very much if a dev is working on Cstore fluff when there is trouble in the game.
Or maybe a short explanation about how the team works could solve a lot of gossip
A little empathy could stop a lot of hatred gossip and more .
And yes it works both ways
But why??? The Dev's have stated in the past that the people who work on the C-Store stuff is an entirely different team then the group that work on the episodes and the game engine... Do you just want them to sit on their hands and be a drain on Cryptic resources???
They hire more devs to work in C-store. They don't pluck dev's away from their current projects. Also a dev is specialized in one thing or another. For example one dev can make a nice ship model because that is what he's good at, while another dev can program the bugs out of the game. Those are two different things. Why do people always think a dev is a dev? A charcoal mineworker and a construction worker are both labourers. Does that mean that the mineworker can build a house? No. Is the construction worker trained to work in a charcoal mine? No. But they're both called labourers in a way.
