I'm still stuck at 162/200 days since first implemented. Few weeks later, it's still 162/200... lol.

I think you misunderstood the reasons for the LTS offer. Those of us who took this offer were not buying 540 days of play time. We were investing money in a game. Cryptic asked us to take a chance, invest, and we were rewarded with a sub that never expires as long as the game is running.

The normal sub players did not take the gamble and put up nearly 300 bucks before the game launched. The average monthly sub player does not sub for 18 months. Its a rare occurrence when that happens.

so, OP, you paid up front and got your special lifer stuff, including a blue forum title, and now you want what those of us who will continue to pay will get in the form of veterans rewards? why should you, when you're not paying any more than we are, and when in the end we will be paying more than you over the long run?

And waiting for the veteran anniversaries is just too much of a hassle, so LTS should get everything as soon as it's ready?

How about the player who joins 2 years after Launch and pays for a LTS. Should he get all of the vet awards up to 700 days immediately?

LTS get the luxury of not having to worry about payments, and after 18 months, they've hit break-even. On top of that, there're some small extra goodies. (As an annual subscriber, my 33% discount and 2 extra character slots puts me in a similar situation.)

Some Lifers pushing their "Oh, I paid $240/300, so I'm super-special" status making them better than subscribing schlubs has been getting up my nose for months. Well, I paid $120 plus multiple boxed sets. What special treatment for my investment should I get?

There is a case to be made regarding the Captain's Table being granted as part of the 400 day vet award, but I can't bring myself to get that worked up over it.

(Yes, I know that those lifers expressing the attitude are a small, vocal minority.)

Agreed. You should be closer to 135 to 138 days or so.

Look at your account page. That's the accurate number. If you had that much it was bugged then and it will pick up counting when the true number catches up. I don't even think it's day 162 of 2010 yet and the game started in February.

It WAS broken and now it's fixed.

My bad. Today is day 165 of 2010. So to be 162 means you are a vet since Jan 4, 2010 and the game started 2/2 official release date.

Nothing.

Veteran rewards are for time subscribed, not hours logged in. Game cards for MMOs can count immediately, because they are prepaid. Lifetime subscriptions are also prepaid.

Just keep in mind ... the rewards for the 200, 300 and 400 day time markers ... don't exist yet. As in they're not in-game. Can't be claimed. And haven't been put in game physically by the devs.

So it's moot. Even if they wanted to give lifers these items right now, they can't. Because they're not there to be given.

It took them the entire time on Tribble and multiple patches to get the Alternate Future Timeline badge correct. And that's just a badge.

Their Galaxy X is late.

The MU Uniforms were late.

Timing is not their strong suit here.

They don't have the captain's yacht done. So no one gets it. Until it's done. No matter how long your lifetime sub is for ... you can't have something that does not exist.

If wishes were horses ...
