I'm fine with adding more exclusives to the game, but they should really slow down with the ammount of exclusive items they are adding and they should really be careful about adding things that have been advertised as exclusive to get people to buy them.
The problem is that Cryptic does not seem to understand what "exclusive" and "limited time only" means. Look at the TOS unis. They were supposed to be exclusive to the DDE...guess what? They're giving them away for free now. While I can't officially confirm it, I've heard that the limited-time pre-order items are still being offered by their respective retailers.

I don't particularly have any problems with offering exclusives. Lots of MMO companies seem to be doing it these days. However, they need to be more intelligent with what they offer and how they offer it.

Yes, you can still get preorder items at certain retailers. Look for a box that has the preorder item still on it.

You know, I'm not really opposed to them making the MU outfit a vet reward for day 600 or something. Or adding the other exclusives to future vet rewards. I do hope they check to see if someone already has it and gives them 500 cryptic points or something to make up for missing out of a vet reward, but long term players help the game.

I do object to them giving things I paid a lot for to someone for Cryptic points that are worth less than $10. But if somoene can put in close to 2 yeasrs on the game, I think they earned the right to slowly be granted things they cannot get for bing a good cutomer.

Hmmm, funny thing I don't remember anyone saying anything about specialty retailer specific items being "Pre-Order" items. They were items you were definitely gonna get if you pre-ordered because they attached a limited number of them to box codes for those retailers.

That means that the initial run or two off the print line came with these special items included. If a retailer was unable to sell all of them initially then there are still some left. In fact from what I've heard most of these items are only being found in CE editions since most retailers sold all of their normal editions that had these items attached.

As I said about 30 times on these boards before and after launch those items are NOT Pre-Order folks only items! Pre-Ordering was just the only way to guarantee that you actually got that limited quantity item from that retailer.

BACK To Topic: I want to see a transwarp skill to Memory Alpha, DS9, and K7....these are major game areas why are there not transwarp gateways or at least "off-ramps" in their systems?

preach on that's how i feel if they start making exclusives available then i know not to dump money on this game when things first come out i'll just wait and get them later for far less money

Personally I'd love to have the Borg BOFF and the other pre-order items included as vet rewards since I wouldn't mind my pre-order items being available to everyone else overtime. The vet reward system seems like a good place to put them while beinging in extra cash for the Devs to keep them going.
