Why not make 3 new playable factions for gold membership and 1 for lifetime members?


Romulans, Breen, and Cardassians and or Dominion for gold membership


Borg for lifetime membership


If they had something like this, it would give a little bit more incentive for people to buy something or do month to month subscriptions.


Same thing goes for starbase designs, I know DS9 was a cardassian starbase, buts its iconic and should be a choice for fleet starbases. And there should be starbase defense similar to the DS9 battles...

So..you want 3 playable races for gold players, and 1 for lifetime?
Just a heads up, liberated borg is already playable for lifetime members.
And i think the idea that gold would get 3 races to play, where as you have written lifetime only get 1? Ya... thats going to go over well on these forums..LOL

I assume the OP meant lifetime subscribers will have all 4 playable factions with a Borg faction as in the players commands a Cube, Sphere, or some other Borg related ship and do Borg related content.

While I don't have a problem with this idea, if it is ever implemented, then it should be a C-Store unlock for silver members. The work required to do 4 extra factions is immense. Klingons don't even have a full faction yet.

If the OP means full/half factions and not just playable races, restricting them to Gold/Lifetime Members would actually be a waste of resources/profit for cryptic. It would be better to just C-store them that way anyone can get them provided they pay. Or better yet provide them as free content and charge for ships, costumes, lock boxes etc.

Not gonna happen. Can't even flesh out the second playable faction they already have.

I got a better idea for gold/lifer membership--Lift the Dilithium 8,000 cap.

No. Just... No.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.

I think it a better idea that any gold member who has paid for 24 months over their time, just receive the Lifetime benefits, including the playable race.
At 24 months you have well payed the amount of the lifetime membership and then a bit, offers an incentive to continue to remain on Gold Month after Month or Just outright go Lifetime.

As for a new playable race, Love to see it, but let's see the Klingon Faction to completion first.
