Yeah. Same old disingenuous Cryptic.

I mean, great news for LTSers below 1000 days - if it were me, I'd be overjoyed. But a massive kick in the teeth for those who walked the whole path on foot.

Lose one irritated customer.

Gain hundreds of new lifetime subs.

They'll be checking it all the way to the bank.

So sayeth a LT subscriber who's been here (almost) since Day 1.

<insert obligatory request for leaving player's stuff>

I suppose this means that, like CO, there won't be any additional rewards for over 1000 days? Eh, still getting my $240 worth.

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.

Thing that doesnt seem right though is i look to people with titles and stuff that over amount of time as being experienced...now you have to worry about a 1 week old player that reached va with the 1000 day title on and not know if hes a newb or not lol.

Maybe it'll work twice.

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

The funny thing is how history repeats itself. I remember when CoH did something similar when they went F2P. If you bought enough Paragon Points, you could go right up the rewards ranks to get the same stuff subscribers who'd been playing for years earned through the (former) Vet Rewards program.

So I'll just say now what I said a few years ago on that other game: if two player spend the same amount of cash, one over time and another up-front, haven't they both equally contributed to the welfare of the game? If so, what is the difference? If you decide to go all-in with a LT sub now, and I decided to do it years ago, haven't we both put in the same monetary investment to the game?

Pay to earn? Why not? Look over at the C-Store and tell me it's not the same thing. You invest in the game (you keep the devs paid), you earn things.

If you're using the LT Sub perks as a gauge to tell vets from newbs, ur doin it wrong anyhow. What's an experienced newb compared to a veteran? What's a vet who acts like a jerk compared to a newb?

So tell me what the problem really is.

I don't care how long you've been playing. I only care about how you play.

"invested" in the game during closed beta or so

would have been just 2 more days for me to reach the 1000

I wouldnt say im doing something wrong when many MANY ways to do things.





And i was a coh beta tester, stopped playing a while ago and came back for f2p and saw what they did and got pissed and said screw it. Sad that game is closing, but more sad for the players.

Except some people have been asking for this for a long time now. And how is this a kick in the teeth to you? Is Cryptic taking away anything from you that you otherwise felt you were going to get? Is Cryptic simply giving benefits to other people really something that makes you feel bad?

And I'm speaking as someone who has been playing since beta, and always been a subscriber or gold member.

So this means we're all getting the ship tomorrow regardless? Well, that shaves all of one day off the wait I guess.
