Since star ships are a hot topic on the C-store (Not skins) I propose that every month after the first the ships would go down in cost by 20%. Till eventually they can be bought with in game ec.
That was the whole purpose to getting us the ships we want in game sooner correct? Most everyone that has to have it will buy it as soon as it gets released and after 6 months everyone can get it in game then. Also cryptic might get more sales that way as ships meet some peoples price expectations. (I wouldn't spend more than 800 cp on that ship, Etc.)
Myself I would prefer a way to get it in game at the same time as released without having to buy it from the C store by way of merits or something else. But after seeing Dstalls comments earlier maybe marketing would be willing to do something like this. Thoughts?
