Fleet ships maybe a test run for per character ship unlocks. If it is they will be disappointed in me, but not the person I bought the FSM from the exchange from. FSM should of been Dili, that way people could grind in game for it, same with Fleet SB, it may be using all in game grind materials, but you can buy a lot of it with ZEN (DOFFs and Dili).

I don't think they are stupid enough to do that... At least not for the ones who already have account wide unlocks.

In the future... Of cause... That's what makes their little greedy hearts pump... Sorry... Not Hearts... Wallets.

It's pretty obvious that all that held these changes back in the first place back in the days was Atari... They may have been sloppy, but at least their greed had limits.

And again, money wise, it makes sense for them to make more money off us. More money=More game. So everyone wins.
In reality most people do with in the same faction, first you must realise when people say account wide they mean for the faction as in all fed characters or all there klingon characters , there not talking about cross faction items, secondly a majority of players fly different types of ships on same character, we use same costume peaces on same character and so on, the masses like haveing the stuff they buy to be able to use on all there characters of that faction

Now you see the flaw in the free to play model. All development goes to the cash shop. Actually playing the game becomes pointless.

Name them... To my knowlege the items that used to be account-wide unlocks have remained so for thoose who have purchased them.

Yes... anyone who buys a new version of said items get pr-char, but that dosen't change that thoose who originally got account-wide items, still has them.

Yeap this is the very bad part of free to play , and which will force player such as myself to switch to free to play if we dont get some bang for our bucks soon, i am going to stay gold till the 1000 day vet reward then will prob switch to free to play if they dont do something to make it worth while for me to pay every month, Cause if most things go to per character my $15.00 a month fee will buy alot of zen every month.

Then we agree... And TBH, I am fine with it... Why? Because I have the items, and what happens to others is not really anything of my concern...

Each and every time they release a pr-char unlock, it means they release something I won't be buying...

Other games function successfully in selling things per character. Why can't STO?

Anyway, I hope the mods correct your topic title. You've decided to worry people unnecessarily in how you worded it.
