People see Perk and they think "Reason". I doubt anyone at Cryptic was clasping their hands menacingly saying, "This will get us more life-sub cash" or "This will shush them". It's just like they did before, a perk.
Read the link.... on the other page it mentions the Lifetime Sale is ending soon
I also doubt this was Cryptics move......
I'll stop kicking that horse when the bugs fixed. Until then as a paying consumer, I will voice my opinion.
They visit the new website (after this last weeks linking debacle) and see "NEW PERK FOR LIFETIME SUBSCRIBERS"
What would YOU think? "Oh a freebie?" "Yay, maybe some special in-game mission/assignment?"
You click the link and get, "Hey, go play this other game we're making and help us find bugs! Don't get us wrong thousands of people without LTS will also get to do the same thing, we just wanted to word it in a way that makes you think you're special so long as you don't think about it..."
It's very anti-climactic...
Some better headers might be:
"NWN Closed Beta Offer"
"Guaranteed Beta Access for LTS"
Oh goody, I can be a super-secret NW beta tester to a game Cryptic is too busy developing and putting my money into instead of fixing the MANY problems STO has? Smart. You can SHOVE the beta test, thanks.
I have to wonder if Branflakes can keep a straight face when posting this crap...
