that was stated but it is not true. All the stuff that is in the cstore is made by the STO Dev team.
Here are some tweets showing devs working on things for the c-store....

CapN Logan strikes again! Oberth FTW. http://yfrog.com/gzo5vxwj

Geko testing the multi-vector assault mode on the new Prometheus. You select which section to pilot each time. http://yfrog.com/h73xlebj

CapLogan working on the beta section of MVA. Looks like he caused an error in the editor, oops! Lol http://yfrog.com/h03rfwbj

that is what makes it feel there is a double charge to play. Because the dev spends half their time on developing the game and the other half on items that cost extra.

I agree with you, I don't think thats true either.

But get ready for : some of those are available in game, not just through the C-Store.

You paid $250 for the launch lifetime sub, yes?
Nope.

They traded long term investment from you for upfront investment. In order to recoup the millions of dollars during development (read: 0 profit), they gave up the potential profit (read: great risk) off you 2 years from then to have it all in their bank RIGHT NOW
Wrong again. They recoup their money from box sales and did so by attaching "special" items to various retailers. Lifetime subs were icing on the cake. Good try though.

Your questioning about profit from LTS years from now doesn't even apply.
Sure it does. You are trying to make a claim that the C-Store is a rip-off, not worth it, should not exist etc. I pointed out to you one way it is necessary.

^^^^

This is why I feel like screaming sometimes. Nearly everything Dstahl posted as a picture on his twitter feed has hit the C-store (including melee weapons). The only thing yet to hit c-store is Shuttle interiors... which now has a 99% chance of hitting the c-store.
