I don't think i am asking too much. For the amount I pay if I was to go silver I could buy 37,500 C points a year, way way more than I need. There needs to be a a marked difference in the STO experience for those that pay more - you get what you pay for and if the supplier doesn't offer a good deal you will go with the cheaper option. If I did that Cryptic would lose money for sure.
My total expense on STO so far has been approximately £500 in the last year, £300 of which is subs, therefore based on that simple sum if I went silver and continued buying the stuff on C store in the next year Cryptic would lose £300. It's not about the money per se, I can afford it, I'm lucky, it's all about value for money, and no matter who you are we all appreciate value for money and not being ripped off. As I see it now Gold members are being ripped off left right and centre.
