There needs to be some kind of concession made by cryptic to the lifers.



I would not have paid for this month, or the last if I was a monthly player.



I could have just not paid for two months and picked up in september... i would have skipped bugs galore, and had content to play.



I guess thats what I get for buying a lifetime sub to a game before it even goes live.

This is exactly the situation I'm talking about when I say "ease the tension".

For those who have LTS and are happy, they'll be even happier

For those who have LTS and are sad, would make them happy

For those who are monthly, it might persuade them to pick up a LTS.

And lets face it, there aren't *that* many LTS in the first place.

Come on Cryptic, do this

No insider source. Just a wild guess that the % of people who

1) Are gamers
2) Have disposable income to invest into an MMO
3) Have the free time to invest in an MMO
4) Are into Star Trek
5) Have $300 liquid
6) Have $300 liquid to invest into an MMO
7) Have $300 liquid to invest into a Star Trek MMO

Is small.

The only thing that could make me regain even a little faith in Cryptic or this game would be when (if?) the Nebula class ship is out, it is FREE.

Not C-Store. Not "get this many emblems."

Everyone just gets one at T5.

That'd be the only possible way.

I got what i wanted out of my lifetime sub. The deal, as it were, has already been made and therefore doesn't need any sweetening. They got my money and i've got access to the game until the servers go down for the last time.

To those that feel cheated adding c-store for free likely isn't going to change their minds very much as many have complaints about the game that don't relate to the c-store at all.

You've been subscribed for seventeen or more months already? Wow. Must have been because apparently lifers "already save alot of cash" and sixteen is the break even point.

You see, I could swear the game's only been out about seven months, and seven would equal out to about $105 dollars in subscription fees. The launch offer, with rebate, was $240. Seems if lifers have already saved a lot then you accidentally overpaid for your subs by more than $135, so you've been paying more than double what you should have.

Poor you... ... you might want to have Cryptic's billing department look into that.

Now, I'm not saying the topic creator's idea is brilliant, but I am saying that you might want to rethink what you've posted. Lifers have paid more than double what you have at this point (assuming you've subbed since launch, and have never lapsed), and they did so at launch, putting that money down and taking that risk on a game that launched early and light on content.

I'm not saying it's worth everything in the C-Store being free... but I am saying that you shouldn't point fingers when you've spent nowhere near the same, nor taken the risky plunge on the game when it was newborn and untested.

I didn't think this idea would illicit so many angry responses

There will be more complaints. One would be 'I have to pay $300 to get all the content?!' That aint right, Cryptic is greedy and evil! The monthly subscriber are getting ripped and blablabla...
