A glass is half full way of looking at it is ... it gives Cryptic 400 days to come up with a new Lifer reward.

As such can I suggest that Cryptic give lifers at 400 days a Transwarp to the Captaisn table ability (30 mins cooldown) that non lifers dont get, so that at least then WE get something for 400 days too for others getting access. this would also remain within context of the theme of what is being added for non lifers (i.e captaisn tabel related).
Heh. I like that idea. It's fun. But ultimately doesn't impact gameplay in any meaningful way.

Best part is ... I bet if they do that suggestion ... you'd see at least a half dozen posts complaining about it. Even though ... all it does is cut one zone time away from using the regular T-Warp.

Clever. Very clever. I like it.

That is just you... We do get a badge for our uniform... But it is quite ugly, and you rarely see anyone wearing it.

A lifetime subscription for a game that could potentially last years that will, effectively, cost Cryptic money to keep after a year and a half or thereabout. I'm not trying to diminish the initial cost and were I in a better state financially I might have got it myself but at launch there was no Captain's Table, it was added afterwards as a perk. Great but you have to admit that it isn't all that great. By the time 'vets' get access they will have paid roughly the same amount as you did, albeit over a longer time period.

What some people don't seem to understand is that the Captain's Table was given as a FREE GIFT after the LTS was offered. Nobody asked for it and now that it's being offered to people who pay for 400+ days of subscription time, people are demanding it be EXCLUSIVE! Tell me, what gives us the right to deny a segment of the STO population from entering a zone of space that is (as has been mentioned) a ghost town for the most part? I say let them in if they're willing to endure that length of time in a game that currently has less than a month's worth of content.

In conclusion, those who are continuing to beat this dead horse STOP! I'm starting to get tired of seeing threads like this start up.

I still believe it sucks just a little to give others the Captain's Table after being offered as a Lifetimer perk so early(it should be at least around the 2 years of subs mark), but I will gladly accept 1200 Cryptic Points on the 400 day anniversary if you have a lifetime membership when that mark rolls around as a extremely delayed rebate offer.
