# 1 C-store abusing us
09-03-2010, 05:22 PM
I don't agree with the way the c-store has gone, they might as well make this a free to play game

1. Extra BO slots used to be available by level - they removed these to add them to c-store

2. New ships used to be available for in-game currency - ever since they made a killing by the galaxy appearing in c-store they have abused this by charging cryptic points for every new alternative ship ( these are items that affect gameplay )

3. What's next ???

This is greatly reducing the number of players renewing subscriptions along with the game being underdeveloped.

The way cryptic are going they will only have LTS players left which i'm sure they can't survive on.

I'm not a big fan of how the Cstore has turned out either, but...

They never removed that. The Cstore purchase just unlocks even more than you could previously have at cap.

Excelsior (T3) as well as all 3 T5 retrofits that arrive with Season 2 are available in-game.

1.) Extra BO Slots are still available by level. They didn't remove those, just added MORE if the 10 that you get wasn't enough.

2.) New ships are still available via in-game currency. The Tactical Refit, the Cruiser Refit, the Interpid (science) refit are all available for 300 Emblems at VA. Excelsior T3 is purchaseable with energy credits are Commander Rank. The Nebula will likely (though its not confirmed yet) also be purchasable with Emblems or some such. I think they are still running the 5 friend referral for the Galaxy X as well.

Sry, but these were removed from they game for c-store profits - they were available in the origional season 2 patch to tribble, it was only when they appeared in c-store and someone enquired about them that they were removed from season 2 patch.

Most people posting on these forums are either LTS or members who don't list in the captain database ?

The highlighted word explains it. New items like this are often able to be tested on the Tribble server for no additional charge. This changed for the holodeck.

But still, you do get more boff slots per rank. That hasn't changed.

you are smoking crack now. The above were not witty responses, they were statements of fact, I play on Holodeck and am leveling another commander on it and every rank promotion I'm getting more BO slots. Check your facts before you post again.

As my other HOLODECK players above me have confirmed, you can get the additional new ships that exist at VA for 500 emblems. Geesh
