I am absolutely livid. I bought a Lifetime subscription in good faith and I chekc my bank this morning to find that instead of being charged £153 ive been charged £239 which is a disgrace. Cryptic you cant do anything right can you ? worse thing is in the UK no phone support and no online billing support
It seems more and more, the old lifetime subscribers are being ignored. You gave us the benefits of a private base, Borg characters, and a 'cool forum title' and said that more is on its way. Will there be more? once 400 veteran days are up, the only difference between us and and everyone else will be if nanoprobes flow through their veins. And lots of us Lifetimers don't use the Borg characters anyway. I just hope some consideration for your loyal members will be shown in Season 4 perhaps? I love STo none the less, but like I said, i'm still looking, for the 'more to come!'
I gopt an LTS 20 minutes after they were announced (the game was still in beta); but I have to say, I don't understand how any original LTS folks feel 'ignored'. They gave a few perks at the start (Liberated Borg, a couple more chracter slots, and if there was anything else, I honestly don't recall); BUT:
Personally, I didn't buy the LTS with ANY hope of in game perks; and the perks would never have sold it for me anyway; I bought the LTS because I liked the potemtial I saw in beta, liked the direction the Dev team was taking the game - and since EVERY MMO that I've liked in this fashion, going all the way back to EQ; I usually spend 2 - 4 years subbed over the life of the game - EQ was 4 years, WoW was 3 years, CoX was 4 years, etc.; so with the cost of the LTS, if I hung around more than 2 years in STO; any time after that, I'd effectively be saving sub fees.
Do I like the perks? Some of them yes. Do I expect more? Nope, I got what I paid for. Personally, I'm fine with that and couldn't care one way or the other if they ever gave LTS folks another extra perk for the life of the game. All it means was I took a risk and paid 2 years of sub fees up front; and if the game runs longer, I never pay a sub fee again. All Cryptic needs to deliver on is to keep the game goibg and hopefully expanding and improving.
Well what can I say, I am seriously thinking of becoming a lifer!
Only been playing the game for just under a month and I can allready feel I will be in it for the long haul
Never ever played an mmo before and I have really surprised myself how much I am now playing this game
