Perhaps it is one last move by Cryptic to get some "last minute" money in the door before something bad happens to the game. They are giving all of the perks up front in case you don't have "1000 days" to earn them.

Remember the disclaimer in the lifetime subscription that says:

Quote:
Lifetime subscription covers your subscription fee for as long as the game is in service.
They could close the doors afterward. Not saying this is going to happen nor the game is going to end-- only Cryptic/PWE can confirm their intentions.

All I am saying is be careful. If you are expecting to get equivalent gold subscriber months out of your lifetime subscription purchase, you are not _guaranteed_ that amount of time.
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"

Had they named it something simpler like "subscription perks" no one would be arguing about this.

In your example, it would be like someone giving you an award for driving your car for 1000 days straight, while at the same time someone who just bought the same car gets the same thing immediately. I'm not aware of any car company giving that type of award in real-life so your analogy is incorrect.

I EARNED 1000 days...I didn't BUY it! New LTS=Death to Vet.System: 10/10/12 Never Forget
Something should be done for those who cared enough to have a 1000+ day sub.

To me, This just cheapens the veteran rewards program, to buy a Life time Subscriber to get all of the Veteran rewards. It sucks for those who have been playing this game since the game went live.

That's the month when the STO forums switched over. Unless you played other PWE games before that, June is the earliest join date date you can have.

YChild has been on the forum for years. And see mine, I've been here since 2008.

Good argument, if it wasn't for the small issue:
