Is it greedy? Yes.

Does it work. Probably.

Will it expand for free in time. Maybe, but don't hold your breath.

The success of certain MMO's have blinded every game developer/publisher out there with dollar signs.

We're still here though.
No.
According to my standards this isnt what a company should get away with.
2 account slots are way too few especially with the skill cap.

I didn't offer any conjecture as to whether or not I agree with it, only that it's the way of things as I see them.

Oh? I suppose you are not?

You are here participating just as I am... I would submit that your 'outrage' towards me is hypocritical and misdirected.

I think you get 2 more slots for lifetime or 12 mo sub. Or you can purchase more slots via the Cstore option.

Are teh extra slots really that much of an issue? You can have (i have heard) up to 8 ships at a time. Hell I pick engineering because I want to tank at the end, but you never level that way. So each rank I had in Beta I had two ships to go with it, Crusier and Escort. You can change your charater all you want and it really only matters which class you are when you are min/maxing at end game.

Skill. Cap.

It is so low ATM that you can't do more then one thing well. And I am sure they will give us a few free respecs and sell the rest in the store.

2 is simply too few.

Allow 1 for each class type given the skill cap, and 1 more for a PVP.

I have the DDE, and one slot I want to use for my Trill SO is unusable till Monday, and I wanted to roll up a Tac and a Engr Feddie, as well as doign a Klingon Tac/Ground guy.

That aint happening.

I'm not going to QQ and say I quit over this, but if I get bored of grinding the same toon and don't like grinding the same 2 skills/playstyle day after day after day with little or no opportunity to stay in the game and try something different, then yeah I'll quit like I did EQ2 and Camelot - I got bored and eventually cancelled and went to a gmae that gave me enouhg variety to keep me interested (WOW). Don;t say reroll, wiht only 2 slots, you;re doomed to being forever Noob due to that restriction. And that still doesnt solve the lack of variety problem: it leaves you with only 2 playable styles/Skills PERIOD.

Variety is what keeps WoW fresh (every 80 has half a dozne alts they play part of the time too, for excatly those reasons PvE or PvP) - and thats huge as a retnetion factor in the MMO revenue model, and Cryptic is stupidly throwing it away IMHO.

That's revenue they are throwing away by being damnably stupid in that design decsion -- probably driven by marketing suits, not the Devs.

Rethink it Cryptic, or else hurry up and let us get more slots -- or at least say that more slot are on the way within 90 days.

Cryptic, this policy is short sighted and stupid. Give us 4 + a POVP one earned. OIr give us the ability to buy the dang slots NOW, I'd pony up for 2 more right now for $25 yeach.

As it stands, even the 2 you get for $240 wiht the life membership are not a good cash deal wiht the caps, I'm worried Id get way bored (and others woudl too). I don;t want to end up ebaying this account, I'd rather play it with a variety of types and challenges.

Right now, the 2 slot limit and skill caps make that an impossibility for all but the most single-minded.

less character slots means less space needed per account on the hard drives. Yes, I am sure they it probably doesn't take up much room at all, but multiply that number by the amount of customers the game will attract.

I have no idea though, I am just spit ballin
