While still charging subscription fees.
interesting. could come to that, but if they did they should change over to a f2p setup.

true, but remember these folks either 1. got folks ot join, 2. spent money out of their pocket. Cryptic changed it in midstream and did what they thought best to compensate those that had spent money/time.

Only twice we recieved 4000 cpoints as compensation
personal observation, your entitled to it. I dont agree with it, but that is my perogative as well.

The Galaxy-X is just a slightly different ship in a game full of ships.
The Galaxy-X is not worth the trouble of recruiting 5 people and then baby sitting them for a month.
The Galaxy-X is not worth 25 dollars.
They are releasing other ships of the same power level, the Galaxy-X is a sample at best.
The only argument I would dismiss is the people who hate the fact that the C-Store exists in the first place.
pesonal opinion noted, hey thanks for shareing , something to consider.

Why does the ship come up restricted for purchase in the c-store?

I think $25 is a pretty steep price for fluff DLC, but Cryptic is hardly the innovator here.

Both WOW and Everquest 2 have had $25 endgame vanity items for a while now.

If you want to blame anyone for the price of the Galaxy-X, blame the 100000+ WOW players who proved that $25 wasn't too high a price for a sparkling space pony.

2000 Cryptic points is not as much as buying 5 copies of the game with 5 subscriptions. However, it is prohibitively expensive enough to push people to recruit new players and get it for free.

If people absolutely have to have it now they can buy it, but I think Cryptic would prefer us to recruit new players. This is not supposed to be a ship that is required to be competitive in the game.

i think the difference between a typical tier 5 and the g-x isn't so far off.

If you decloak and open it up on an enemy from 10 k away you've got a helluva and alpha with the lance and the decloaking attack buff on top of dual cannons. In PvE you're a beast, maybe not so much in PvP.

2000 points is fair and just price, anything less would be an insult.

Referr 5 players = get 2000 C-Points free + Galaxy X free.

Tell that to the CO lifers. The MU unis should have been just as much, but nope. They're in the game for 280CP. THAT'S an insult.
