Not only do we get the privilege of paying to play the game but we get to also work for cyptic.

Hey maybe this will catch on, next time you buy gas or groceries you can pump a few others ppls gas and start bagging groceries for other customers.

Yeah... those folks that go and cheat to buy it for themselves will have to maintain 5 seperate accounts to keep the Galaxy-X in their inventory thus providing Cryptic a SUSTAINED income for development.

6x$20 a month, every month = $120

DO IT CRYPTIC !!!!
Now there's an impossible task. It's going to be a challenge just to get 5 people to subscribe for a month, let alone keeping them indefinitely.

Is this your first MMO? If not you should know that they all have similar RAF programs. I don't currently play WoW. You should ask Zoot if he's seen anyone flying around on the X-53 rocket they offer to their fans who bring in new subscriptions.

Your arguments against the C-Store aside, if you want to improve the game you play you sometimes need to put in a little effort. If you don't want the item then it doesn't matter to you anyway, but if you do then you actually need to work for it.

lol everyone has a chance to get it, followed by a disclaimer saying who cant.


That fails on logically on so many levels.

You misread what he said. He said that everybody has a chance to get it, and then followed by saying that he doesn't understand why people are saying that you can't get it. His "disclaimer" was to include the only people who would have trouble legally obtaining it due to the laws of the country, i.e. Denmark (speaking of which, is this game even sold in Denmark? Honest question really, I know there are clients for Germany and whatnot but I don't know about Denmark)

So because eveyone does it its a good idea. Guess when its not a rhetorical question to some when they ask if all your friends jumped off a bridge would you too.

The difference is that in WoW they have a more realistic goal of recruiting one friend, for 90 days, rather than 5 friends for 60 days.

Also, the rocket mount is basically cosmetic/cool as opposed to the Galaxy X, which will actually differ in tangible ways from any other ships that are available, and possibly give a noticeable in game advantage (or not, we really don't know until it's been revealed).

Thanks for all the feedback, folks. I've moved this over to the C-Store and Promotions feedback forum now that it's up and running.

The program itself is a good business move for MMOs in general. Extenuating circumstances might cause it to do better or worse than others, but if it was a failing model then nobody would be doing it anymore.....
