I don't agree with the way the c-store has gone, they might as well make this a free to play game
1. Extra BO slots used to be available by level - they removed these to add them to c-store
2. New ships used to be available for in-game currency - ever since they made a killing by the galaxy appearing in c-store they have abused this by charging cryptic points for every new alternative ship ( these are items that affect gameplay )
3. What's next ???
This is greatly reducing the number of players renewing subscriptions along with the game being underdeveloped.
The way cryptic are going they will only have LTS players left which i'm sure they can't survive on.
