I just got word from a Cryptic Rep over the #STO IRC that yes the tab price is really high and they will be changing it at a later date to a system where the price goes up for each consecutive tab that you purchase. At this point, we just have to endure.
I wonder what the time is on this. I'd hate to spend millions (when we could be saving for other things) and it be changed shortly thereafter.
I thought the cost was high, but we got enough for a second one in less than two days, and unlike other games it looks like the cost is the same for the rest of the tabs. This is a non-issue in the end really. Small fleets don't need big banks right away anyway, so they have plenty of time to get the credits together.
Way to few slots in Tab one. Any size fleet needs more slots and/or more tabs immediately. With the way the permissions are set up you can't limit the number of items to withdrawn from the tab. The first tab can be a general drop off point so new members can get some lower level items to assist them. The second tab needs to be where people can get the really nice stuff and dish it out as needed.
