I just picked this Tid Bit out of an Email from PW.
"To celebrate the launch of Season 5: Call to Arms, we're offering subscriptions at a discount! For a limited time, three and six month subs are on sale for 15% off and lifetime subs are available for $100 off the regular price."
If Players who have been thinking about LTS, need a nudge, I would say this could be your chance.
with the bare crumbs that subs get over silver, spend the 30 or so bucks and out fit your toons at gold level and walk away with the extra cash, LTS and Subs as a WHOLE are near valueless the foundry creation to me is NOT enough to warrant 15.00 let alone 200.
Don't forget that big 400 C-store point monthly stipend.
Seriously, other MMO games have actual incentives to keep paying, Cryptic really dropped the ball on this one. Even their "proof of concept" game, Champions Online, has some actual rewards for paying for a sub, you get all kinds of free in-game items and abilities that silver players have to pay for. Here, you get practically nothing.
