For some things, I can understand a per-character unlock, but I don't think bank slots should be one of those things. Perhaps Cryptic could compromise and make it "per-faction", so that if you purchase more slots with a fed character, then all fed characters get more slots, but any Klink characters you have won't.

I have to say though, I'm glad they've given us the option. I desperately need more slots!

It doesn't seem that unreasonable to me. Ship slots and BO slots are already sold on a per-character basis, why would bank space and inventory space be any different? I doubt they're over at Cryptic gleefully rubbing their hands together believing we'll buy these slots for all our characters. Most of us have only one or two mains that we play with any measure of regularity, so probably never will need more storage space on the others.

As for the different prices, both are 12 extra storage slots, but your inventory moves along with you, while your bank slots take a bit more doing to access. So, inventory slots are worth more. Again, not unreasonable.

I'm just glad I've got some more room for my shinies now. I just wish I could divide my bank into tabs (or crates) so I don't have to spend fifteen minutes figuring out where in this massive wall of all my most beloved junk the item I need right now is hiding...

Yes, some other MMO are doing that, but those games that do that usually do not get money from me for those items.

I an many other do not like the BO and ship slot per character, but we have not asked them to get rid of them, instead we've asked them to add the option for account-wide slots.

Cryptic still does not offer shared banks for sharing between characters, which most MMOs do offer free or purchasable ones.

This would be helped if they allowed us to respec our characters on the same level as they allow us to do it in Champions Online. Plus allowing us to put any bridge officers in the bank and mail them. As well as allowing either our character's bank untouched through this complete respec or make it possible to mail bound items and ships to ourselves.

In Champions you can buy additional TABS not slots. Which is far more superior then this crap.
Sure there are other Per Character items in there. But they shouldn't be that either in my opinion, unless there are account wide versions available too.

Some of us have more then 1. I have 4 characters bumping their heads against the level cap, so far. So restricting it to one character only is greedy and I do think they at least in their mind do what you say they don't do.

I must agree , adding this option is a good thing , the fact that its per char and we are paying for the game time is very greedy , most games that sell these items are FreeToPlay, so i have no problem with them .

I for one will not buy any slots as long as they are per char . The slots opening items are too expensive as they are , and to think that you have to buy them for each char is a ripoff.

My 2 cents , you have the right to disagree ...

It should be tabs and not slots, slots are joke especially that they are tabs in another game of theirs.
