I say bite the bullet now and buy your Cstore points for use on holodeck. You'll then get bounus points to spend in tribble and buy some XP boosters to help make the grind to level 51 easeier.

I doubt we'll ever see a 20% discount on Cstore points ever again so you might as well buy the points now.
What grind ? They throw xp at you on Tribble like the world is going to end soon. :p

I don't follow the logic. Why "bite the bullet now" and purchase points that we MIGHT need in the future? Unless they give us one of those sales during the F2P beta test, nobody will be wanting to buy them JUST for the "test points".

The only reason I would buy C-Store Points would be to grab up more Duty Officers on Tribble. This also applies to any free points I'll be receiving. But, considering I have some points on Holodeck, I will not be buying points.

I'd also like to note that I am not pleased with this and, in general, I've been tolerable with a majority of decisions made up to this point.

The price adjustments will be in. Some items will be missing from the store as we update them, but the vast majority will be there with pricing adjustments.

You will not have previously purchased items from the C-Store in here.

Will the Borg Boff be in there? I've been dying to get more Efficiency to boost my Emergency Power abilities.

We are giving people free points. There will be a stipend this week, and possibly more later. However, if you burn through your initial stipend you can get more just by purchasing standard C-Points, as many people already do.

I agree with this. They can find out want people want to try by limiting how people get test points and how much they get them. With the way they're doing it, it just sounds like they're trying to bring in more money.

Ok. That makes me feel a "little" better. I'll wait and see how much we get.

And on top of that for testing for bugs.
