I want to know what happens to the veteran rewards when STO goes free-to-play?

I (think) I read someplace that the 600 day reward will be the last one in September. Then they may go on to some other form of reward. I am not 100% sure where I saw that so donít take it to the STO bank!

I have to say IMP that Cryptic treats its memberís right! Most companies try to get new people and offer they all of the deals. Cryptic has continued to look out for its loyal customers. I am sure that will continue in the F2P model as well.

Didn't CO continue them for a bit? I remember somebody saying that the last time STO FTP talk came around.

Last thing I remember reading was that they planned them for every 100 out to at least 1000, and possibly on a longer cycle after that. That was... July or August? So recently enough that FTP plans were most likely already pretty much in place but they were still in silence mode about it.

Champions Online still uses them: the last, so far, being the 700 day reward. The game is just now having its 2 year anniversary so it has not reached the 800 day plateau yet - and 2 of them have come since going FTP.

Co never stopped, they are up to 700 a month ago, so it will probably continue here as well even when it does go f2p.

DStahl said in another thread (maybe it was my thread on the 600 day vet reward), that they would continue to provide vet rewards up untill 1000 days.

For Freemium models, there is no real change for subscribers except more content on the C-Store and maybe more content in the game.
