So ...

Can you still buy an LTS to Champions?

If so, does it come with the Mirror Universe uniform special?

I was not aware you could or it would.
The Champions LTS package was only offered pre Champions launch and is no longer available. The package was heavily promoted at the time as 'get it now or never.' They oversold so many due to the MU bit, that they tried to stop selling them early but eventually relented. Which was followed by many attempting to get their money back after the infamous launch day patch fiasco.

Some goofy moments in Cryptic History.

Indeed they were.



Glad to know I wasn't losing my marbles either. I thought I might have missed something completely. Or that they went back and re-offered it after I left.

I don't miss champions online. One bit. But the more time that passes the more I realize they may have actually improved it. Until I get updates from friends.

Heh.

To lend support to this point, I would like to mention that ... in my time with the game ... I lost count of how many lifers in CO would preface or end a post with the caveat that ... "The only reason I even bought this sub was for Star Trek" ... and would cite beta access and/or the MU uniforms.

Many many many lifetimers would post that they were only killing time until Star Trek.

And when they didn't get their beta key right from the get-go ... the Champions forums became assaulted with Star Trek complaints.

So Personae makes a very strong point. The Star Trek marketing gimmick worked with Champions.

Granted, a lot of us who did play Champions played it because we liked Superheroes, liked Cryptic's prior superhero game, liked the Champions RPG, or a combination of all three.

But ... a lot of those folks were driven mad by the development evolution that game took.

Heh.

I've heard the game got some improvements around February of this year. I wouldn't know. 2 weeks of having my main character stuck in one zone unable to free him killed my desire to log into the game. So I quietly left it. No rant. No rage. No I Quit thread. Just an introspective "well, if I can't play my guy, why am I paying for the game?" followed up by a a cancellation.

As a double-lifer, I would prefer to see at least something different about any MU uni release.

MU from other eras, TOS MU that does not include the Spock top (so, the highly requested Kirk sleeveless), and the men's knee-high boots (again, kirk, but also several others from TOS MU)...

There are plenty of MU items I would have no issue with becoming available to Joe Average.

But try to keep some perspective on the value of reward - leave at least something (the Spock top) sacred - Feel free to get MU, but at least reserve SOMETHING for the CO LTSers only.

I agree. It was one of the reasons I have the lifetime to CO...well..that and I like CO. The new content they added in Feb was awesome and what is about to come out looks fun as well.

There are reasons for certain perks... certain perks require certain sacrifices. I paid for mine...

So, if you want the same perk.. Fork out the cash.

I am tired of people whining about perks that other people have, that they PAID for...

If you wanted it that bad,.. then you should have paid for it.

Sorry... but socialism in games is not fun.

Other things will be out in the future. I am sure that the AGT Enterprise for the RAF program would be cool too. I just don't have 5 people to invite. Should I get the AGT because somebody else took the effort to get it when I don't want to/am unable to? I am not going to cry about it. Other options will present themselves later.
