Oh heck, a friend in Arizona gave me the code. And it's not like a little flea with an ion trail even matters. Del Taco shuttle should be up on the cstore for free. It has no point and makes almost no noticeable visual impact. Most people don't even notice the shuttle until after you mention it. Even then it disappears in combat so there's no reason to even claim it, let alone activate it.

By the way, I'm joking. Honestly I think anyone who would complain about the shuttle is like that lady I saw at Popeyes Chicken once. She drove 40 miles in an SUV whose particular make and model has a gas mileage of about 12mpg. She drove it 40 miles to Popeyes, 40 miles back home. Realized she was shortchanged by 3 cents, drove 40 miles back, got out of the SUV, let the engine idle, and argued with the manager for half an hour about whether or not leaving the store constitutes forfeiting any amount she was short changed by. She only left when another customer gave her a nickel and said "here's your three cents back, and my two cents if you'll take it: get some help lady". Then she drove 40 miles back home. Imagine how much she spent in gas in comparison to the 2 cents "profit" she made from that little escapade. Time is money and she was burning both.

I agree and cannot understand all the "Cryptic we want X added to the game. Put it in the C-Store." requests. It's absurd. Doesn't anyone want the ongoing game content to be included with their monthly fee? Isn't ongoing content supposed to be the reason for the monthly fee?

It seems like every time I read a new thread, I find yet another person that wants to pay money above and beyond their subscription fee for game content.

Well, given that there is and will be a C-Store, and assuming it will have items which are cosmetic or slightly useful in-game, it is logical to request these particular items. Obviously, free is also good.

Cryptic listens to the community so let's take a poll:

A) Who wants to get game content for the subscription price that they already pay to Cryptic?

B) Who wants to pay for game content over and above what they already pay/have paid?

I vote B! Because I a) like the fact that whiny people won't get said item and b) have money to burn!

I find it amusing that most of the people who believe it should be 'part of the monthly fee' are lifetime sub holders, and those opposed to it are mostly... not.

(seriously, I had a debate with my fleet about this, all the normal sub holders were happy things were in the c-store and said they would have been angry if the preorder items had been made available/unlockable by other means in game. They said they felt it would deminish the actual value of the items. sigh.)
