People are not asking for charity. People are asking for more reasonable prices to so they can support Cryptic. F2P should be more about micro transactions not price gouging. I'm sure if the ships were $10 a piece there would be more people to buy them.
I think there is a misunderstanding about why people are complaining about the C-Store. I am a lifer and I do have most of the ships, but I feel the C-Store prices are ridiculously high. Prices where suppose to go down for F2P, but they were raised instead. Prices should not be higher than a monthly subscription, unless it is an expansion pack.
