Problem with the link is that that was in July. PW took over in August.

Ah, but that was pre pw taking over. We were also told that nothing would change for subsribers and that that all the prices in the c-store would go down in the f2p conversion.

After pw took ownership, everything changed....

Sounds like this ends like dstahl's statement that you'd be able to create a KDF char as your first toon thanks to the new tutorial at the Klingon Academy and would not need to level a Federation char any more to get it unlocked.

That was also pre-F2P conversion and we all know how that one worked out.

both of these are stone cold facts. They may have said that. But, based again on actions, it will no longer apply. Unfortunately for them, Actions speak louder than words. Again unfortunately for them, they've indicated by action that they will attempt to monetize things, well before they attempt to do things to make the playerbase happy. Almost ALL, of the major changes to how things have been on tribble have been due to outrage by the player base.

Prove, based on past experience, that this isn't a possibility.

It will most likely be in the C-store, and everything Dan has said about it will be treated as if it never happened.

Plus, it'll probably be T5.5 and have a whole bunch of tacked on extra's to make it p2w, like everything else coming out.

Sadly, anything dstahl has ever said is no longer valid, now that the galatic empire has seized control.

What irritates me about this is that your prediction is outrageous enough that it will probably happen exactly as you suggest. There's been so much outright denial and rumor-quashing of similar suggestions by TPTB, just like there was when it was suggested the game might be going F2P, that it merits consideration.

From what I've seen, increased Cryptic denial = increased probability of happening.

Which was an entire Executive Producer, owner and business model ago.

Given recent history and what we know of PWI, it is a very safe bet that the F will be a c-store purchase.
