Yeah, it won't let me either, but paypal did give me a debit card. also greendot and netspend prepaid Visa/Mastercard ATM's work as that is what i pay my monthly with.

you can buy those at walgreens, walmart and a few gas stations.

about 9 or so bucks USD. and a few bucks USD depending on where you load its between 1.96 and 5 dollars usd per load.

I've had this account for a year but I haven't been able to afford to buy a lifetime sub yet. Thanks to the fortuitous timing, I'm actually getting two: One for myself and one for my wife who has, until now, been playing one of my character slots. Just because someone hasn't had a lifetime sub since the beginning doesn't mean they haven't been *here* since the beginning.

point being, don't do anything stupid cryptic. the last thing this game needs is lawsuits.
You're looking at midmarket rates, not what your bank (or Cryptic's in this case) charges them for the currency. Banks are not legally required to sell currency at the midmarket rate. Assuming Cryptic uses Bank of America (they may not), they would pay $243.09 + a 3-6% conversion fee.

Cryptic can charge whatever it bloody well likes for its products. There is no legal requirement that they charge the same price for the same product in all countries. If they want to make the Canadian subscription $308, they have every right to do that. No Attorney General will stop them from doing business because they choose to charge more for their product in another country.

Alright, I've bitten the bullet and purchased a lifetime subscription.

I guess I'm here for the duration. Looking forward to it.

Welcome to all the new lifer's. I'm sure you won't reget it and continue to enjoy STO as much as I do.

i bought my LifeTIme Subscription yesterday because i just love this game.

Where can i get this Captain's Yacht or what are these Access Codes for? Captain's Table i already found, but the access codes Item in C-Store says something about Veteran stuff.

Also now that im Career Officer i will open my own fleet. However finding people willing to help are rare.

I'm not saying that this is going to happen but...

...another online game offered a discount on their lifetime sub right before announcing they were going free to play. They now give 500 points a month to those who purchased the lifetime sub before f2p went live.

Just an observation...

Just bought the LTS and I am happy about it. Should have bought it after beta, but nevertheless...now I can enjoy STO for a long time.

Cheers!

I too just purchased the lifetime. While I did not expect STO to be planned as an on-going work in progress (I had hoped it would be much more 'finished'), I have very much enjoyed my time here and look forward to every improvement. Because that's what STO clearly is and is intended to be, right? A constantly evolving and improving game? Or am I just nutters?

Quick question, does my name and title (career officer) show up as it is supposed to?
