The balence is really screwed up for the galaxy X but the other stuff on the store is about what I'd expect to pay a guy to develop and implement a 3-D model of. Plus all the content additions like ship interiors, weekly episodes, new seasonal episodes, diplomacy, new exploration maps, ect. You are getting for just your sub, and if it's true that 15 a month isn't enough to cover those costs you're actually getting a deal, haha.

This was a falsehood, as the Galaxy X demonstrates.
Again, it's shown that Cash > Integrity.
Anything Cryptic says at this point, on ANY subject or topic, should be taken with a grain of salt, as their vows mean little, as demonstrated.
yes same with cryptics so called preorder programs and exclusive rewards no point ever going for exclusives in any cryptic game again as you know they all gonna end up in their Micro store anyhow.
SO any preorder deals and programs from cryptic is basically false marketing..

two things first the red. you can still get the galaxy-x outside of the C-store, but it is harder to do that. as for getting it in the game one could argue that you have to get your friends in the game and have fun with them in the game, so there for you are still getting it in the game, but I'm not one of those people who argue that.

also this is why we need to be able to exchange merits for C-points. that way you can still get it in the game.

Agreed, it would let us play for everything on the store and let them put whatever they damn well please up there except missions.

lets not turn this in to an exclusive fight. ( it will derail the ship issue, and will most likely get this thread closed )

They said when they announced these exclusives that they would later be available on the cstore.

yes but then again remember Champions online trying to sell players ADVENTURE packs aka ingame content...
BUt i agree they should make ships gainable for ingame grind this means ppl actually will pay subs to grind wich the short cut would be just buy it and save that time...

it's nothing against you if you took it that way... I just don't want to see this turn in to another legal, moral stalemate like all of the other threads that covered this.
