I devalues if your Atari points don't transfer back to cryptic points and your money goes to Atari..........and not Cryptic.

This and the other replies make sense but that is not what the post I replied to said in anyway.

That post implied that c-store items had value based on how much longer the game continues to run and said nothing about giving atari cryptic's money. I don't agree with that sentiment but I do agree that players have a right to be concerned to which company their money is going to.

Although badly worded I meant this as how the possible sale of cryptic effected game lifetime vs. C-store item value not the relationship between Atari and Cryptic as a whole. Now I see how easily that could be misinterpreted.

I understand peoples caution on spending more money if they don't already have the tokens on hand. Its always a risk, but right now its a greater risk, and most people, especially in the current economy, would feel better knowing there is a larger chance of their virtual purchase being there for a while yet. Without that re-assurance, people might very well want to save that purchase for their possible new leisure activity should STO cease to be. Not that I think its going anywhere, just that I get the viewpoint.

I have to agree with the... apprehension being expressed. I haven't been able to play much since February, so there are a few things I would like to buy now that I can play some... but as much as I have spent in the past, that little voice is telling me "You better wait.."

I'm not looking for a guarantee that the game will be here in 6 months or a year, I didn't really have that even back at launch.

But I do need some details of the plans for the game and the company going forward, because sadly too many other companies have abused their customers (or outright lied) and as much as I trust Cryptic, I can't do so blindly in this case.

Oh even I can guarentee the game will be here in the next few years.
That is an easy one.

But Atari is selling Cryptic.
Cryptic cannot comment on that because it isn't their action.

Don't worry, this happened to Bioware before with NWN1. Took 5 years to settle it.

Does this sale include Lifetime Membership?

As long as Atari is still in charge, I won't be buying anything more. So far, I have bought every single piece from the C-Store, so this is my first time of not buying a new item (in this case the fighters).

Will the C-Store soon be selling C-Stocks?
