Probably has something to do with every other cruiser in the game, including the Retrofit Galaxy, being better than it.



Anyways, Stormshade and dstahl have already addressed this issue. This thread isn't ever going to do the heavy lifting of researching those statements. But rest assured ... folks who've been keeping up with current dev chatter know what their stance on this thread's topic is.

Since this thread can't force change in any noticable way ... the only thing left to do is standard internet forum posting behavior. Most of which, I'm pretty tired of. So you guys and gals have fun with that. Save the internet one post at time!

yes, but better versions are almost always available in game (they scale to the odd numbered levels from what I've seen)

Level cap increases to 51. The blue phasers are back! They make a great holdover until you can grind 180 emblems for Mk XI. And even those Mk XI's are just laterally better.

I could have sworn that it was originally stated that items with potential game-altering effects would be able to be earned outside of the C-Store, not just necessarily in-game.

Really, this topic is starting to get out of hand. Most (at least half) of the items currently up on the C-Store can be gotten through alternative means. As far as I know, the pre-order and edition items can still be unlocked through their respective promotion. And until we know otherwise, the RAF is still in effect, which means that if you refer five friends and they pay for at least a one month sub...well, you can get the Galaxy-X for free.

The majority of the rest are either purely cosmetic or account management transactions, which would not fall under the category that you highlighted in red.

And, guess what? You don't NEED the items being sold to enjoy the game. If you don't like it, then don't purchase them. If only Cryptic would focus on actual in-game content rather than working on fluff for the C-Store...

How is it getting out of hand, everyone seems pretty calm and collected.

Btw, Any micro-transaction that has a game effect can also be earned in the game through playwas the main point. It doesn't say outside of the C-Store, it clearly says through play.

In this thread, yes, it seems pretty civil. I was referring to all of the threads that pop up in regards to the C-Store. And I've participated in most of the larger discussions, so you should know my stance on the store.

They have already "revised" that statement. If only i knew how to link. This topic was discussed before and dStahl responded multiple times to it.

I haven't participated in every discussion so I don't really know it.

I personally am opposed to any game changing things in the C-Store, but have no problem with cosmetic stuff.
