The long and short of it is that any C-Store item available in-game will take longer to get and generate more subscription fees, eating up people's gametime. In that sense, you don't get it sooner and it pays the bills by forcing people to re-up for an extra month or two.

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.
TY.

A C-store is a fine idea, I support. But for 15/month, at least give me some option to grind the stuff out on my own.

Just this comment here is enough for me to consider re-upping another month. Fixing the "Destiny' quest would be another, of course :p

Consider that fact in your meetings.

I'm going to wait to see if this works out before I resub... but at least now I won't uninstall the game. Yet.

If I had the oppurrtunity to buy epic weapons and shields over the C-store, I would do it. There is nuffin more annoying than daily-grinding with all those bugs in B'Tran (anomalies, teaming, etc.) and barely no other chances to get emblems. PVP is not my style, and Big Dig 25 out of 30 days a month isn't a hammer either. ^^

So you'd reward the company that provided you bugged and annoying content by paying them to avoid said content...

Sounds more like a protection racket than a game.

Actually, most people seem to find it a tad excessive, but the point is there's no reason one ship should cost more emblems than another ship.
As you can see the erstwhile STO business experts are already changing the argument from too many C-Store points to too many emblems.

The first mistake was making a T5 Excelsior in the first place, it's an absolutely elderly ship in the STO timeline and makes no sense to be in the same class as the Sovereign from 100 years later. Even with refits, those things got melted like butter in the Dominion War. The second mistake was making it completely exclusive to the C-Store as opposed to having it in some sort of program like the Galaxy-X.

Oh and I can't wait to see what you do to appease those who have already spent C-Store points...they'll surely be here on the forums making a stink.

Then what's the point playing the game? Why not just buy a programme that displays "You Win" on your screen?
