For the lifers who don't think they deserve thier own game, this does not apply to you.

I expect and await the flame wars.
to be honest it will be the subscribers that keep the game alive... as it's per month

The Life time was just a 1 shot deal

The Lifetime sub is cool and all but I just couldn't justify it. I only played two MMO's in my life for over two years and one of those I ended up working on. The other one was WoW which I played for a year and half, took a break for over a year, then went back for almost another year.

Before I consider spending that kind of money on a subscription I want to see how STO is doing in a years time and what I think the life expectancy will be. Right now it needs a lot of work and more content added to it. Somehow I also think Cryptic is going to put out more "Paid Content" then they will free updates and I'd like to see the pricing on that and how soon it happens.

If it looks like STO is going to have a good 5 or 6 year life span then maybe a year from now I'll think about buying a Lifetime sub if they're still around. Until then I think I'm going to wait and see and keep paying my $14.99 a month.

But until then, they HAVE invested more in the game than you, and theres no way around that.
so, after we total $240. do we then become more important than the lifers? we will have spent more money than you, so we should then get the priority and you will go to the back of the line.

meh

dont bother that guy is ****** even if someone paid 240 upfront for a lifer they are actually less valuable than someone who pays 15 a month...... do the math 240 and nothing more while 15 a month is unlimited monthly people are actually more valuable

Well, $240 != $14.99, so no, your $14.99 really isn't as good... At least not for the first 16 months, that is. Assuming you're around beyond that, then yes; your $14.99 is as good and better (to Cryptic) than the original $240.

That being said, as a lifetime subscriber, I don't expect any special privileges other than the ones I got when I bought it, and I certainly don't expect any crap from a lowly monthly sub (kidding!)

I agree with the OP (and I am a lifer). However, there are a number of people in various situations that feel they have an entitlement. I realize we are all paying customers and deserve to be treated fairly. I just wish players would have more tolerance and consideration and Cryptic employees would do everything they can to help us with our issues.

Similarly, I wish we, the players, could have more considerations for those who have different experiences and perspectives of the game. In the end I think we will end up with a better product if we could be more constructive and civil.

The fact that they bought a lifetime sub is irrelevant. In fact, those who do are basically dead subs for Cryptic. As soon as the game's lifespan catches up to their investment, Cryptic begins to essentially "lose" money on every one of them.

Cryptic will give nothing to them for free. Check out LOTRO to see how it's gonna work. Lots of special deals will come along to act as incentives for monthly subscribers to sign up for longer, or spend money on extras. Anything the lifetime subscriber wants above and beyond the basic game and the ability to play it ... they gonna pay.

They locked themselves out of any deals by taking the long term savings of becoming a lifetime subscriber.
