Lifetime subscribers should therefore be provided with either a master-master key that is permanently attached to all characters on the account, or the boxes should automatically open for those with Lifetime subscriptions to the game. Period!

I'm perfectly fine paying for special items listed in the C-Store, as I've already probably spent an equal amount in C-Store purchases as I did for my Lifetime subscription. I am NOT OK with having to pay to open loot items that I earn from playing the game, again, a game that we already paid for the continued development of.

And when you come to the conclusion that this is the proper way to treat your lifetime subscribers, especially those who've been around since beta days, you should also refund any of our master key purchases already made.
Why what makes you so special ?!

Please you and all lifers who think this way need to get a grip of yourselfs. I have paid monthly since day one, giving more money too Cryptic than lifers who paid back then and I also spent cash on c-store for those 2 years.

Chances are I've giving Cryptic more money right?

I'm not crying about anything based on my subscription status. No one gives a dam that your a lifer. There are GOLD and there are SILVER. You got your extra bonus for paying lifetime it is in the terms of paying lifetime and Cryptic have no need to continue dishing out extra perks to you.

Do you think you bought shares in the game or something jeeze lol

Exactly subscription benefit your not paying for a GOLD status in the game for your entire life.

One lifer would open 20 boxes in a day and possibly earn millions of EC per day as a result if it was FREE for them to open these boxes.

A little common sense goes a long long way.

All gold members should get a key stipend (on top of the 400CP/month thing)

We get 400cp a month we need more in fairness to justify the monthly sub and lifetime but cryptic need to make a profit too so I dont think our rewards should be from C store but maybe certain entitlements in game the F2p dont have. Oh and not what we have now its hardly anything:/
