The answer is to fix emblem rewards for PvP, not sell them on the C-Store.

I mean if the stuff is all you want, why not ask them to sell the items directly on the C-Store? Because that sounds too distasteful, doesn't it?

The C-Store already goes way too far, the answer is not to make things much, much worse.

Buying currency in the C-Store is definitely problematic.

Though it is kinda possible already - for 100 Points you get a BO you can sell for a few hundred thousands EC on the Exchange, IIRC.

Every little of these is a step t hat can lead to "Pay for Power".

I think really Cryptic has to get some work done on the PVP rewards. It's laughable that you cna get only 3 Emblems via PvP each day. If they would just have all 3 PvP Queusts on at the same time, we could increase this number to 9/Day. If they added something like the B'Tran "hourly" to PvP (Maybe win 3 matches and gain 2 Emblems - makes grinding them via AFKing impossible), we would basically be even.

This equal to selling gear outright and will never happen. a few MMOs tryed to do just that and they are no longer around.

I am actually suprised that this doesnt happen already. I mean, that FOR SURE would let Cryptic make a lot of money through C-Store.... so who cares if it inbalances the game? I mean beside the players, of course... but after the last week I'd be even more suprised if Cryptics shows ANY intrest in what players care about as long as they cant charge them extra for it...

i'm not. because even cryptic isn't stupid enough to add an instant 'I win' button to the game. selling emblems is a massive no no.

I hope thats sarcasm. players would freak out, many would leave. games that have done this kind of thing have never survived long.

cryptic doesn't care what players think unless it directly affects the amount of money they make off them. this would drive thousands if not tens of thousands of players away from this game. hence they aren't going to do it.
