Here Here!

Keep it exclusive, keep preorder bonuses and lifer bonuses just that. Bonuses for people who actually do what is necessary to get them. Enough of the whiners who want everything handed to them later.

Ah yes... an entire thread made to say "Neener Neener I can recruit 5 people and you can't! Ha ha ha!". Very mature... It stinks of the same "I'm Blue and Superior" rub-it-in-their-noses nonsense that I refused to participate in.

Great job in being considerate to your fellow players who may not be as fortunate as you.

All ready have my buddys in on this and there ready to go and try the game out. Im sure there are many many others out there like me that were able to find 5 people they know and get them to try your game. Here here for the exclusive item you have put into the mix, cant wait to fly it around with everyone else who managed to get one.

I hope to see more things like this in the future, that are Exclusive. Love yah Cryptic *hugs and kisses from all your fans* <3

*flame shield ON!*
well fine then everyone saying they want the captains table and the pre order stuff and collection of items you had to get before launch of game by pre order to go into the C store......none of you get...

take the captains table away from the vet rewards...its and exclusive to lifer only....let alone the few other things us life time players will be getting.

If they earn it as an achievement/accolade then they have worked for it.

Making it avail in-game as an award for a chain of missions and so forth does not mean anyone got it for free.
If people have put the time into the game or put the money together to buy it, then they deserve it.

With all the things avail in game to people as it is, we still do not see everyone flying the same ships or using the same gear.
So saying that everyone will have it and that the game will be flooded with them is not nec accurate.
Some may not even put forth the effort to get it in the game no matter how accessible it is.

It is the principle of the matter, people should not have to make it a second job on top of everything else to achieve some of these things.
There should be other ways to get iconic items besides having to go out and spam people into buying the game.

I have no real issue with RAF programs, but I do have an opinion on what is being dangled in front of people as a reward and what all is involved in getting it.
It seems a bit on the steep side.

If it was for one or two people that might not be so bad and lower some of the other reqs, but 5?
It may not be a lot of work for some, but for others, that could turn into a 2nd job in and of itself.

They could use some other item less controversial.
Sell it in game for a decent sum.
Allow people to earn it in game.
Make it a vet reward.
Maybe even leave it as an RAF item, but make it also obtainable through a string of achievements in game.

If your curious about the captains table and how I feel about that being exclusive, I think it should be avail to everyone also.
Star Trek should be about the players and the fans, not who has the most friends or who has the biggest wallet.

I want to see this game do well, I want to see tons of people playing it.
It is awsome to see people enjoying Trek, so I have no problem with them coming up with things to get people involved, just wished they would pick less controversial ways to do it lol.

Wait, what?

Look, I sat down in Iron Man 2 last night (did a double feature. Coolness.) and in the packed theater opened up a conversation with the guy next to me about Iron Man, comics, SciFi... and thenI drifted his Trek comment into this game.

Did I make a sale?

No. He inst a gamer, and doesnt see the need to become one. That's fine, I'm no pusher.

BUT, I made every effort to educate him on MMOs in general (nothing too deep, just the basics), what SciFi offerings there are now, Mentioned CoH and CO (we were in a Marvel movie, after all), and so on. And in the end, he may not have agreed to become a referral, but I tried.

And as I've pointed out elsewhere - that's the point.

Not subs, but getting conversations started. Literally planting seeds of positive thoughts about STO in the minds of the public.

I will mention: I brought up the Galaxy-X, and this debate (without revealing my opinions on it). I mentioned the referral program, and the reward, and its exclusivity. I touched on both sides of the argument.

The opinions of this unbiased Trekkie?

1) Cool.
2) Why *shouldn't* someone be given an exclusive reward? We cant all be the winner in a race! (his words)
3) The Galaxy-X? [I had to remind him, and describe it] What a strange choice. Didn't that have an extra nacelle? That's not really supposed to be there you know... [he mentioned the pairs of nacelle only issue, we talked about the later excuse made that maybe Galaxy nacelle are in fact 1 housing, but dual internals, and there fore its 6, not 3, but in 3 housings)


While I felt vindicated a little there, my point wasn't the impressions, my point was this: I TALKED TO SOMEONE ABOUT STO.

Try it.
