Congratulations, Cryptic. You've made the transformation for me - from supporter to someone who will never give you another dollar - complete. Go ahead, check my purchase history and see just how big a mistake you've made.
Do you need exclusivity as justification or to feel good? Why can't everybody who's willing to go whole hog reap the benefits for doing so?

Also, it doesn't matter if you stop purchasing. The amount of Lifetime subs Cryptic is going to get due to this incentive is going to far outweigh the loss of one single customer.

Only if it is only for 1000 day vets.

So, why exactly does it matter to you if someone who pays for a LTS now gets access to all the rewards instantly vs. 1000 days later? It doesn't affect you at all and keeps the game running.

And since there isn't going to be (probably) any further rewards, its a great way to encourage sales of the LTS.

Are you saying you wouldn't have played the game/enjoyed it if you hadn't gotten something kinda exclusive every 100 days?

I've been LTS since the beginning, and don't care if newbs get the vet rewards instantly or not. Whatever keeps the game going is just fine by me.

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.

Glad I sat through 1000 days(!). Hey, at least they kept their promise the ships wouldn't be on the C-Store...

So.. does that also mean that every "Career Officer" now becomes "Starfleet/Empire Veteran", regardless of subscription time too?

NO!

Screw off on wanting c store versions, i really dont want to see what happend with the Galaxy X happen again and players feel screwed, if that happens again i will walk this time, worked my butt off to get that thing.

Now these ships rock, great boff layout, cool unique abilities, and different looking. THANK YOU CRYPTIC!!!!

And on the lifetime, i told a buddy days ago this would happen, i still wont buy, i paid monthly, soon going down if they dont continue vet rewards, im happy.

For some reason I was unable to post this on the main website.

Congrats to Team Cryptic and Mr. Lee, I love them. The little glow tower out of the top of the Peghqu is a little off from normal Klingon designs, but who would've thought that Klingons would've came up witha temporal deflector either. All in all I'm quite impressed. It makes me sad that I couldn't afford to start playing at launch. Will there be any variants?

Not sure how I feel about the LTS sale and all of the vet rewards being available instantly. I mean...circumventing time in service. And I would benefit from it immensely having only started playing several months ago....still, just seems odd. I mean it's logical from one perspective as the person IS going to gain those rewards eventually.

A curiosity though. Now that the resources of making Vet rewards are free...what is the Dev team going to do with that energy and time?????
