Then someone gave You a word of advice:

Clear enough for you?


Does that mean You are breaking Your "word" on staying away from the forums ??? Did You give Your "word" to stay away ???

I know Your never reply was reffering to not trusting Cryptic in the future but it was Your way of showing that once You have said something You stand by it and dont break it. However You see, You did come back to the forums although You said You wouldn't.

Not meant to taunt or insult You. Just an observation and two questions. You see it can be hard to keep a "word" sometimes if it acctually was a "word" that as given and sometimes maybe one isnt so clear to others after all. It's easy to be missunderstood.

Nothing like a good drama.
*grabs Pop-corns* or acctually *Pepper Chips* this time.

The evening is still young, so I look forward to many hours yet of C-Store entertainment/drama.

The betrayal was the fact that they swore up and down that the Mirror Universe uniforms would remain exclusive to that deal. I don't care if you quote Terms and Conditions and I don't care if the only thread that can be found where this was said was by a dev that has since been dismissed. They said it. And now everyone and their grandmother is wearing my exclusive uniform. No more exclusive in that is there?

They had options they could have taken rather then just taking what was given as exclusives and putting them up for the quick buck. But they couldn't bother to take the time to create the Captain's Mirror Universe uniform. They'll add that in later and charge everyone even more for it.

And the most disturbing thing about this is it is all one sided. They took away the CO LTS exclusive but said that the Liberated Borg will never be offered. They've also said that their recruiting items won't be offered on the C-Store. So, you see. If you support Cryptic as a company then STO doesn't really give a damn. But if you support STO specifically they do.

But then of course 2 months from now they'll forget all about those promises too, and the Galaxy-X will be offered up on the C-Store in the Ultra Mega Superfralacagalistic C-Store update along with the Holo-Tribble and Holo-BOff and all of the other exclusives that haven't been offered up to the money gods yet.

No integrity. No honor. Just money. Go Cryptic go.

I haven't finished the update to my Canon Color Guide yet. And I won't technically be able to finish that until the All Good Things uniform is available to me about a month from now. I promised people I would do those and I am a man of my word. Regardless of how I feel about the game or the company I will keep my word.

Trust me as soon as those are done, I am out of here.

Sorry to hear that. Was hoping You would see another side of it all and simply realize there are more important stuff in life to get all worked up about and stay and play with the rest of us.

I think you have a problem with understanding.

Evaluating.

Cryptic Evaluated the feedback, what are the outcomes of the possible scenarios.

A. Don't sell "exclusive" items in the c-store.
1. People without bonuses complain in the forums.

B. Sell "exclusive" items in the c-store.
1. People who have bonuses before complain in the forums.
2. People without the bonuses pay money to cryptic.

OK, so using mathematics I will evaluate which of these options is better for cryptic, and really in the long run better for you (if you intend to continue playing the game for reasons other than to run around saying "nyuh nyuh nyuh look what I have and you don't" of course that is what MMOs are for some people)
