C-Store Update says the week of Sept 21st to 25th for the Fluidic and Borg tribble...

Now I wonder how many 'Cryptic Points' they're going to be???

Probably the same as the Rivera; I'm guessing 120 CP.

Will you look at that...

One has to wonder how they will encourage Major Tribble testing now? I mean, this was somthing that was actually getting people to test on tribble... Now alot of thoose will just wait till thoose benefits appear on the C-Store (And I can even understand that, oddly enough).
I'll keep testing on tribble, as im too Cheap to spend money on C-Points, but not all will...

Too bad.

No offence to anyone, but it seems to me that there are way too many people out there with way too much cash.

I see the benefits of the C-Store... I really do, but would'n it be more beneficial to Cryptic to add things for Say... "Emblems of Purchase", and let people earn thoose through special missions. THoose would then be transferrable into C-Store points and let people buy stuff there.

That way people would (i think at least) maintain their supscriptions, and Cryptic would recive a steady cash flow, instead of tempoary short lasting boosts?!

It is not Cryptics fault however... as a "unnamed" Forum appearence with yellow texts said (roughly... i dont remember the exact words) in a "the exchange is overpriced" thread: As long as people buy overpriced items off the exchange, the ones who charges the overprice will keep posting at overprice.
The same goes for the C-Store.

Yeah, you missed testing, but you want the reward for testers. Pathetic.

But discussion is over... They are hitting the C-Store next week, so you can have them then.

You could decided that you didn't play that one hour on Holodeck but o Triblle. It's just like for example Korzeniowski or any other Olympic Champion could said: "Guys I missed the last Olympic Games, but I want the gold medal. Can you sell me one?"

Except for the whole Olympic Game analogy, makes perfect sense...

well from what i know business exist to make money right?cryptic is a business after all.they give me i pay.

yeah maybe i didnt get in the tribble weekends...

maybe i was too tired working all week...

yeah i know that you probably have a job too,maybe a better one,maybe a worse one.

it doesnt matter to me whether its special or not.i just want it.just for the fluff of having it.

so...i guess theres not much to tell.i just want all of them.its that simple.

oh and maybe maybe i tried to get in but my internet provider is irresponsible and on weekends its hell getting a connection...but that doesnt matter too.

all that matters is that im willing to pay for it and that means more money to cryptic,that means more money for the devs(hopefully),that means better game in the end=happy players and happy devs and happy corporate suits!everybody will be happy!

and what about all those people who payed more money for some edition of the game and then saw their special benefits in the c-store?arent they people too?why are the tribble testers so special?ok i know that,yes i do.no tribble means less fan for the standard server.i know. i just want them.its that simple!

....hmmm im starting to get out of hand...im acting like a 5yo...but i still want them!its gonna make my STO experiece more fun!

that simple.dont wanna hurt anybody.i just want a borg and a fluidic tribble.is that a wrong thing?

you serious?you know its a game right?games are supposed to be fun...right?so i will have lots of fun peting a borg or a fluidic tribble.

i really dont think that the analogy works.gold metal=special tribble? come on!gold metals are for super humans...aka olympic athletes.tribbles are ... pets...pets in a pc mmo game.ok i'll stop there.

why so negative?i work hard for my money.i expect to get nice things with my money,exept for food and survival stuff.c-store gives me nice things.cryptic happy<=>me happy!

other people can have fun and play whenever they want.i used to be like that up to the point that i got my master and started working my "impluse drive" of!(that was supposed to make you laugh).plus i grew up and people expect things.plus its a lot more difficult hanging out with friends...one lives in that town the other on that suburb...the other on that province...weekends are all i have!

dont be that negative.please!all i want is a little thing that makes funny sounds.i dont care about the effects.doesnt matter when in a ground mission.i know i will pwn the enemy whatever it is.i just want it for the fluff of it!

hey ive got a better reason for you ... me and my girl that we were about to be engaged broke up a few weeks ago(her fault...too immature...guess its better now than getting a divorse later).having those funny tribbles will make me feel better.is that good enough?

come on that surely sounded miserable enough!and yes its true and its hurts like hell!just 2 itchy beatchy tiny tribbles!is that such a big deal?if it is and ok!but if its not then dont be like that!

(im not from the US or england or anywhere that native launghage is english so dont make fun of my spelling):p
