That is a pretty good deal. With the new feature matrix, paying monthly does not make much sense. Buy a lifetime subscription or convert to silver. If you want the lifetime, Cryptic looks like they need some upfront capital, so now is probably as good a time as any.
I got my lifetime sub ($199.99) when the game first started in Jan 2010. It has more then paid for itself in just over a year. Glad to see teh $199 deal back again. This is a really good deal for people.
I just hope that Cryptic keeps up with new content....
I'm sorry, but I have to laugh at this feeble attempt at fooling new players in to paying you for nothing in return.
If we the long standing supporters of STO get ignored, don't think your opinion will be worth anything. All they want is your money per month and from micro transaction to be able to play. But wait, isn't that micro transaction for Silver players that play for free. No, you have to pay for the same things as a Gold players so no point in subscribing not buying a lifetime at this point.
Now if Cryptic changes their take on how to treat paying subscribers, that might change. So stay tuned and be vocal.
Thanks Stormy. Will there be any rebate for those who have multiple months left on a multi-month sub if they convert to lifetime? A pro-rated fee or a conversion of the remaining balance to c-store points would make the offer much more enticing.
