I am not sure if I would recommend LTS to a new player. I bought mine pre launch and Cryptic's consumer confidence has dropped in faster than a 401K in my book. Their is a lot of consumer confidence to earn back.
By raising the stipend 25% since most of the big ticket items went up this much (no thanks to Steven D'Angelo) after we were assured by Dstahl and Stormshade that C-Store prices would remain the same or decline.
The account wide bank that by this name alone is fraud.
Improvement promised that never seem to come to fruition.
At 199.99 great price, but for all the short falls and the Steven D'Angelo fiasco not great enough.
I took the plunge and got the LTS today. I figured I was going to be paying the monthly subscription fee anyway, and since my sub is up for renewal in a week or two; I figured out that it was really all that much more than what I would have paid to resub for 6 months.
My only concern right now is 'my account' page doesn't reflect the LTS and ingame, there is no access to Captain's Table or an option for the Liberated Borg character. I am assuming that it will either become available in a day or so; or when my current 6 month sub runs out.
