I was hoping beyond hope that when I logged onto STO today, that Cryptic would have done something smart, something that would have made a lot of people happy, something that would help their own reputation.
But no, they have once again alienated their own player-base and compounded their horrible reputation. Yes I am talking about the Excelsior. Can you imagine what a pleasant surprise it would have been to log on and there it was available to everyone who wanted to fly it. I think that such a gesture would have gone a long way to heal some old wounds.
P.S. Hey Klingons, I know you are waiting (and rightly so) for some new ships. You had better start saving your hard earned cash now.
You mean like the teir 3 version that everyone can fly at no cost....?
Irrelevant. The tier 5 version has stats that are not available in the game otherwise. That is a gameplay-affecting feature avaialble only in the C-store, and that is breaking a promise made when they were selling lifetime subs.
