This is awesome and all, but 1000 Zen for only 10 more slots? Man, I'm glad Champions Online also included slots as part of their Vet rewards.

800 Days
The Stunning Title
FREE Full Retcon Token
FREE Costume Slot
FREE costume Change Token

40 Additional Shared Hideout Bank Slots


Are we going to get this?

Also on Champions the slots are WAY cheaper:

20 Shared Bank Slots for 450 zen

Why is that? Why such a discrepancy between games that use the same engine?

Yeah talk about hi-way robbery prices... dang. I was willing to throw money at you, but that doesn't mean I will for a bad deal... too little for too much.

Especially since gear already bound to char, that would be bound to account after this patch is not getting "retro bound to account" I'll just deal with the 20 I have.
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

May sound silly, but do we know yet if our MACO or OMEGA Sets can be put in the shared Bank at all??

Man, these guys aren't even trying to hide the price-gouging anymore, are they?

First it was the 700 point "1 character use" EV suits. Now we have;

1000 points, gives 10 account bank slots

vs

400 points, gives 12 inventory slots (character specific)

I realize the account bank slots, allows access to additional space shared across all characters. But your still charging MORE THAN DOUBLE the cost, for less slots.

Wanted to add: a Max of 40 slots in STO? I have more than that in CO just from the Vet reward... why the limit when it's the SAME ENGINE?

Yup, I've got 2 Purple Mk XII Directed Energy Distribution Manifolds that are worthless space junk now. They used to provide bonus to all energy damage then a patch made them only give bonus to beams, but since I don't use beams on this char they are now bound to this char and worthless to me. If it had been retro bind to account I could at least use them on someone else.

Ouch. Looks like I'll still be making heavy use of mail.

Here is a wacky thought, if people don't buy it they will lower the price. However given the evidence of people willing to gamble on lock boxes and buy overpriced EV suits I have no doubt many will spend the zen. They won't get my zen for this one.

Price is too high for something so legitimately small. Half the price, double the slots, then the non-******* will buy it. 10 dollars for 10 slots is stupid, especially when 15 gets you the 1 month subscription, 20 slots, and all the other perks that go with it.
