# 1 Anniversary Contest Idea

i have a idea to get more people interested in the game.

Why dont Cryptic hold a contest where the prize is a lifetime subscription?

I want to say something snarky like "because it's now worthless", but in all honesty it is likely because when you give away a prize that big they have to ensure little to no cheating is possible. I am not sure if they can ensure such a thing to avoid community backlash if someone cheated to get such a prize.

Do you not remember the 'Design the Next Enterprise' competition?
These sorts of things are unfair for large chunks of the player base as anyone outside the US, and even in some states, isn't able to enter due to the complications of international tax law etc.

Best to just leave that one quiet, methinks.

Not to mention, you exclude from the contest the people who already showed their faith in the game and already bought one.

Things like the bug ship would make for a better prize.

LTS has been next to pointless for awhile...but I guess it would just be cryptic's small loss then But the Jem'Hadar or something equally rare would be a better reward than a LTS for a failing game.
