The Excelsior was a half-step and now we need to put both feet in. I'm hoping the Nebula can be in game as well as in store. The in game way to get it might not be cake - but at least it will be something.
Sounds good... so far.

I actually have no Problem with the Excelsior beeing a C-Store item.
But i have a problem with the pricetag 1200 C-Points? COME ON!
600 would have been easy to swallow but > 1000 is just greedy.

This is not only a half-step it's a total miss-step on your commitment to 1) Sell only cosmetic items and 2) The ability to earn *all* C-Store items via game play.
Yep. 100% dead on.

Man, crazy with the cheapness. This is a bad business idea - these folks aren't going to buy anything out of the C-Store if they can get it without paying. Some people live, eat, breathe, and sleep this game and will grind for it until its theirs.

This will literally solve my #1 complaint with the game dstahl.

I haven't gotten a lifetime subscription yet but even if i do i will probably still pay for my monthly subscription because i want to see the game improve and that is how the devs get paid.

Making it possible is enough, this kind of thing should be part of a quest system anyway. I would be happy as hell to even have it as a random drop of some kind like some of the ship blueprints in SWG. Since the crafting system is not capable of handling that kind of thing, at least not as of yet, there needs to be an alternative method until it can.
