You should still write if it makes you feel better, but you definitely arent in the majority.
Or to put it otherwise, 71% is either FOR or doesn't care whether the change occurs or not.

I think at this point every dedicated player in this game is excited and ready for this game to go F2P. I'm super excited to see the flood (hopefully) of new players as well as some of our old friends returning. This is going to be huge for new content as well! :-) I truly can't see any negative in this move and if they go with their Chamions model I'm sure all will be satisfied even us lifers!

Nice Work~

I'm pretty damn happy with the details. I'll save $5 per month by not having to buy C-points.

For crying out loud! The Gold players get shafted! Look at the Champoins matrix and fix yours! We need a lot more as Gold subscribers, and not a longer shaft!
.

In Champions, we get:

Premium Archetypes, most travel powers, more costume choices, way more character slots *and* 400 C-Points a month FOR FREE with a subscription.

In STO, we will get:

Only 1 more character slot than Silver, no unlocked premium races, no unlocked premium ships, no new x.5 ships, no additional costumes for free. We will *only* get 400 C-Points a month FOR FREE with a subscription.

It's time we get leadership in the game that isn't so short-sighted and lacking in business sense!

Seriously, who over at Cryptic really thinks there is any incentive to go Gold with such a raw deal as this?

I agree. Thanks for making my Lifetime Sub worthless.

Sorry guys, need to do alot more work on your f2p transition plan before it goes live.... ALOT MORE.

I couldn't agree more.

And from what I've read, lifetimesubs here won't get nearly as much as they do on Champions. Perfect World has stated that free 2 play accounts for STO will not be hindered in any way from gaining all levels, character types and content.

Thousands of us spent a significant portion of their yearly game dollars on purchasing this game for a lifetime subscription. If I had known that STO was going f2p after 18 months, I never would have purchased lifetime sub. I would have waited until f2p to play. I could've spent the $239 sub +$69.00 game +$160 atari points on other things.

My mistake. Nobody else's. Trust me when I say that I've learned my lesson.
