I're repriced the C-store to show more accurately what i think the items should cost and a brief description of why. I've tried to standardize the pricing a bit more, but let me know what you think and how you would change it.
Federation Peregrine Attack Fighter
(200 Atari Tokens)
Let's face it, these don't do you any good until you need it for a mission. Plus it should only be 400 points if it unlocks for both factions instead of just the one.
Federation Costume Pack: Open Jacket
(240 Atari Tokens)
This is a fair price for open uniforms, but then need to open all versions for both Male and female. Kirk wasn't sexist, so Cryptic shouldn't be either. Plus even in TNG there were Men in Skirts, First episode, swear to god.
Melee Weapon Pack
(160 Atari Tokens)
Two weapons, none customizible? come on, WAY to expensive seeing how the mission they were made for GAVE you better weapons for free. WE shouldn't have to pay more then 80 points per weapon.
Federation Costume Pack: Enterprise (22nd Century)
(120 Atari Tokens)
This is just a flight suit. it should really include the mirror uniform pack as it's not that different. Do that and i'd bump it to an Easy 240 points
Service: Additional Character Slots
(500 Atari Tokens for 2 character slots, 850 Atari Tokens for 4 character slots)
I'm actually not sure about this one, what do you think would be fair for the buyer AND the seller?
I actually do not understand why you made that efford.... You dont really believe that this has even the slightest chance to persuade Cryptic to change the prices?
And I dont understand why diffrent ships of the same tier should have diffrent prices....
Mostly because 2 or 3 days with our sleep (yay insomnia) leaves a person with nothing to do as evidenced by this list, which took 30-40 minutes while listening to a pod cast. And no i don't, but it was more of asking about what the other game players thought of certain pricing. As for the different ships of same tier, it's mostly due to the special functions like MVAM or the dreadnaught compared to the fed retrofits which only have a single special function. Also again partially do to the lack of sleep.
although to be honest, you never know, if enough people dislike things Cryptic does Change them.

That's funny because i love when people post on things putting them down when they thing they are complaining about is listed. Many (obviously not all) of these are based around prices set by the C-store and Standardized and are even reference albeit jokingly under said item. Take Bridge options for example. The klingon packs usually run about 2 for 80 points, the fed packs 3 for 120 there for a base price is easly assumed 40 for each. But once you get above that they tack on more to the price, Hence in the opening statement

there are more examples if you wantas well. But then again if you actually read it you might have noticed that before hand.
this was meant more as a IMHO type post with a slight bit of humor to it to get an open discussion on what people thought were fair prices for things based on use, function, and performance after a nerf hammer. If you don't like it just remember, it's only a forum post and it can't hurt you, no matter how bad i've purposely made it for you to suffer from MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!
