yes that is correct. atari and thus cryptic used the 80 in game points equals 1 us dollar model (same as microshaft). In general PWE's model is 100 in game points = 1 us dollar. Soon as Season 6 hits Holodeck, PWE zen will replace cpoints ingame, everyones cpoint balance will be increased by 25% to accomodate this.

And C-Store Prices will be converted to Zen, (which means a 25% increase in the posted price...) to compensate for converting to the lower value currency...

The overall cost actually decreases if you buy them in quantities of $50 or more, since PWE gives bonuses at that quantity.

And once it changes to Zen, we get to be entertained by all the
"Yesterday this ship cost 2000cp, now, it's 2500 zen. PWE is ripping us off again...", threads...

I agree... In the long run it will end all the anoying "ZOMG THEY ARE CHEATING US" threads.

Fortunally it will also mean that I won't be buying any in-game currency ever again.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Don't look silly, don't call it "Zen-Store" - Don't waste devs time, Post proper bug-reports
