Also, how is not wanting to pay $60 for paid DLC to a company I'm already paying $15 a month to being an elitist? You sir, I find to be unintelligent. Yes, I did play WoW for about 5 years. I have recently stop playing due to sheer boredom.

oh and second off this is the internet mr tough guy I don't have to be prim and proper is that okay with you daddy?

Btw your prescious wow game in its next expansion is stealing a few ideas from star trek online oh and good job saying reported on your alt account bud typical tactic a wow nerd would do.
I literally just got up from falling out of my chair laughing so hard at your idiocy.

I'm not flaming you just to flame you, I actually think everything you say is hilarious. I just can't take you seriously.

EDIT: Also, I don't hate the game. I love the game, I hate the way Cryptic is running the game.

Well, my suggestion is to avoid flames; avoid language and hyperbole that characterizes Cryptic as having committed crimes against humanity; avoid emotional appeals; ad hominem arguments; etc., and...

make proposals to Cryptic that address subscriber retention, adoption, quality of game experience and revenue growth and you may get a response and support.

You love the game, but insult the people who put in all the hard work to make it? Good luck with that attitude...

This is just an example: You really like chocolate chip cookies. The company that makes the chocolate chip cookies kills puppies. Do you like the company that makes your cookies? They're hard at work, you know.

You seem to overlook the point that you're not paying for extra content here. ALL the things listed in the c-store is not content. Content is new zones, new missions, new STF's, new gear that statistically improves your character.

You're paying for costumization options, none of these are things you must have to play the game, you can do perfectly fine without them. Argumentively the Enterprise ship is the only thing that would fall under content since it's marginally better then the standard ship you start off with, however this is still mostly cosmetics since it's not completely overpowered compared to the alternative. If they charged money for actual content then it'd mean you have to buy it or you couldn't play the full game, but that's most definately not the case here.

Please do not mix up content with costumization options, there is huge difference between the two.

does the this list of reason revolve around your interpetation of how cryptic is 'bilking' the player base? are they wrong for following the rest of the industry going this route? so now you hate more MMO companies aside from cryptic too then, huh? or is there a legit gripe other than jacob flowers has posted about?

Nishka is right! c-store fluff is just that fluff. nothing useful comes out of it, just eye-candy to enhance YOUR gaming. content is having new explore missions, STF's, pvp match-types and such..........which they have provided and will add much much more when season 2.0 debuts on tribble in 2 weeks.

Wait... who else is selling pre-order exclusives as add ons to their MMO?

I keep reading "evolving" and "industry" remarks about how this is to become expected, and to a degree I get the idea of buying into content (the way CO does, where the content is earnable with time in game, or money in the C-store), but I have never seen any game re-release its pre-order exclusives and other exclusives for pay before this.

CoX comes close with their boosters, but those are usually out when a *new* edition is launched, not to sell old gear.

Anyone?
