Yes, I dont think it is reasonable for cryptic to expect people to buy more than one copy of the game, just because you did, doesnt mean it is reasonable. It's like saying that people should buy 5 copys of the game to get the galaxy X. That isnt the intention of cryptic, even though some people are going to do it, the point is to refer people.

Nor is it reasonable for them to sell something very cheap by comparison that others paid alot for it would be a slap in the face to those that did shell out the money

As someone who purchased a few different copies to get different perks i wouldn't mind it if they were made available in the c-store.

Actually they already had a promotion giving away TOS uniforms for free so Cryptic certainly isn't scared of any potential customer backlash by offering things for cheaper or even free that others had to purchase copies of the game for.

Technically that's happening already - as it does with every MMO. I paid $30 for my copy of the game (GameStop) while others paid more. Arguably, I paid less for more content than people who purchased the full-priced game at launch. It's just the nature of the game.

It would be nice to see some of those items for purchase at the C-Store, I agree, and I would be willing to pay for some of them.

You didn't pay a lot for the extra items though. You paid more because you bought more copies of the game. If you take into consideration what each item is worth without being tied to the game. You're going to be upset but that's not my problem. The TOS uniforms were already given away free. That pretty much ensures everything else will eventually be available, which doesn't bother me at all. They can even offer up the playable Borg species that's tied to lifers only currently for all I care. People want this stuff and they shouldn't have to resort to buying multiple copies of the game to get it.

I think it's completely fair as well, nobody forced us to buy extra copies of the game after all and nowhere it was stated that eventually the goodies wouldn't become available to everybody.

Before you cast judgement on me, I shelled out an extra 100 euro for a collectors edition while already having the DDE.

There are however still other goodies I'd love to get too and I'd rather buy them from the c-store then purchasing additional copies of the game.

The Collector's Edition items should never be available for those who didn't buy the Collector's Edition.

However, the regular editions should be allowed to be attainable by others. (Buff Tribble from Best Buy / Liberated Borg from Amazon / etc).

Edit : Just saying for arguements sake, I do not have the collector's edition for STO. But I did get the CE's for ******** and would have been ****ed if the in game items were made available to everyone cheaply after I shelled out more for the CE than the regular version.

Well the collectors edition might have cost me more, but only like 5 euro perhaps, infact I think it's argumentively cheaper then the regular version, all things considered.

I got an awesome badge, 3 10 day guest passes (basicly an extra free subscription month), a cool art book and the extra in-game goodies.

It looks like you paid more for it, but with the extra free subscription month I'm not sure if you can really say as much.

I would agree that lifetime subscription bonuses be kept to lifers, I think that is something that they should keep exclusive. I would even say that Collectors Edition items be kept unique.

I don't think it's fair to give away things that were advertised as being exclusive to certain versions to people who didn't buy said version.
