I am curious to know if we can expect this same income method in cryptics upcoming title or if this form of gating content behind gambling is a targeted predatory tactic due to the star traek fans predisposition to collecting.

No. It will have treasure chests. That require keys to open. It's a pretty easy leap to make for that kind of game.

Kill a dragon, get a chest.

Then pay their store for the key. Varying tiers of keys at varying levels of price depending on the type of "boss" your group just killed.

Well, of course there will be lockboxes. You can even play as a lockbox ! Amazing isnīt it ?

It's weird how CO and STO differ in such regards. For example, "Pay-2-Win" items like heals and energy restores don't work in CO's PvP. P2W consoles work just fine in STO.

It is no surprise that people looked optimistic to the F2P launch for STO after having seen LOTR (generic example) and CO (Cryptic example) go F2P. If only we had known...

And today CO is getting their version of the dilithium store.


Yeah. There is such a huge difference between eastern and western F2P philosophies.

So I guess any "thief" class is going to be utterly useless since he won't be able to pick a lock on a chest. Being a high strength warrior type would be a joke too, since you could cause a critical crushing blow on a dragon skull, yet still not be able to smash open a wooden box.

What exactly is wrong with that? Is earning C-Store points by playing the game a bad thing?
