there's nothing lame about this deal. it grants you the opportunity to get access to all existing and possible coming(!) fleetships.
so you will be able to have access to all fleetships, on all your fed-toons, whether if you're want to be in a fleet or not.
sry op, where is your point about it being expensive? it's 40 bucks and you only get access and not the ship itself, yeah.
but on the other hand one c-store ship is 25 bucks (their pricing for a single t5 ship too) and you won't ever get the opportunity to get access to fleetships when you don't want to be in a fleet (for those people this deal is just like gold).
also c-store ships are way more easier to obtain, so even while there are more costs for purchasing the fleetship itself after paying for the access, stays within the given sto pricing policies (i don't bother about the math, proove me being wrong 8))...
too expensive? then just wait and decline the grateful offer till you find another way to get t5 ships.
got in contact with another fleet a while ago which sold single provisions (t4) for 4-6m ec each. referring to that you'll get your share after buying the 8th-10th ship (beside the fact you also can get t5 ships now ^^).
myself already own 5 fleetships, so i would not be far from "making profit" out of such a deal...
(2 from aquarius. so yes, i'm a satisfied customer )

my suggestion: if your fleet is already t3 shipyard you may just should try out the fleet excelsior ...

None the less you don't save for today, you save for the future. There will be things I want in the future, obviously. Like when the next lockbox comes around.
Hehehe yeah, I remember talking to you about that before after I bought the ships. You were laughing the whole time at both the server disconnects and the fact you had so much bloody ECs.

But even so, OP, nobody is forcing you to use them. But they are probably offering the best deal, and even if they decide to raise the price, anyone who took the 40 mil EC deal still gets unlimited and indefinite access to their shipyard with that account. So basically, anyone who paid that, can come back at any time and get new ships (which is likely to be something I am doing btw, just an FYI).

I am probably biased due to being a very satisfied customer, but you get the idea. It's a good deal bro!
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.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

this thread and all similar ones is the result of cryptics screwd up fleet system that promotes people condensign to a single massive fleet just for the items - and its not a fleet, but rather like some list of names where noone knows each other or gives a **** about helping - and sicne its T5... where do the "fees" go to, there most likely is no need to dump 25m ec to fleet projects - so it goes to the pocklets of the elite top and their friends not people who actually contributed to the fleet.

In your desire to rage about 'large fleets' and all that fun stuff you might have missed the part where there are literally only two of us. No 'elite top and friends' to mooch off the backs of those made it happen when we're the ones who made it happen.

Ok, this is about as simple as it gets:

-People spent their time and energy building a T5 Shipyard.

-Same people have placed a 25mEC/40mEC Lifetime value on access to that shipyard

-Other people can a) pay or b)not pay.

No great hu-hu.

Problem is what?

Pretty much. The animosity I get from some people when they inquire honestly confuses me.

I think what you're seeing is frustration over the fleet system in general, not really aimed at you.

$25 is already seen as a lot for a C-Store ship, to say nothing of the $50 3-packs. To throw 6-7 months of high-level grinding on top of it (I know it's only $20 if you need the full 4, but still, 6-7 months of work, even if it's game play, is a lot), and that it's a single character unlock... well, that's a lot more than a lot of people are happy about facing. Myself included, really. Also, although it's difficult to get top dollar for high-value commodities such as FSMs and keys in order to raise the necessary funds, as I found out with my own little fundraiser not long ago, it can be done, and I don't know if people realize that. Finally add in the general sentiment that one must leave their fleet to partake in the goods, so to speak, even if it's only for a few minutes. The result is people not terribly happy about the way things have fallen out.

This is not to denigrate your accomplishment; it is a high one. I am in fact one of your customers if I've read this thread right and you are who I think you are, and I've been loving my fleet ship. I'm also rather happy I have the account unlock. To me, at least, your pricing is very understandable. However, the fleet system has always bothered me a great deal in this regard, and I imagine others are in the same boat.

Too that Teir 5 salesman, I have a fleet module, and 25 million EC, when my character gets too L 50, I want a Fleet Assault Cruiser, the new Imperial class, those things should put out some hurt, take some hurt, and it looks sick. Not sure how soon I'll have my cruiser toon too L50, but I'd like you too contact me in game if you see this or get a chance, so we can at least set something up.

Just toss a mail at @atheonyirh when you're ready and I'll be more than happy to get you squared away when the time is right.
