PvP is very slow these days and might die if nothing is done soon
Unfortunately, all you really did by spending that money is encourage the devs to make more of the items you bought with those tokens. This in turn means they'll spend even less time improving the areas of the game that need it the most, such as PvP and KDF.
LOL costumes. Now they want ripped shirts and hoodies. The requests are never-ending.
I get that if it pays the bills it will be done, Cryptic would argue that the time set aside for new costume/handbags and propane accessories pays for itself, and if the paying public didn't want them, they would not make them. Which, to some degree is right.
However, I think what gets most of our noses up, is the speed at which these cosmetic threads receive dev attention. Tide made a valid (if a little sarcastic) thread in general feedback, and it was dumped into the PvP feedback forum no sooner than he'd typed it.
We are all too aware that this forum is the Room 101 of the STO forums, where threads come to die and the only interaction between player and developer/moderator - is a liberal spattering of infractions.
