I'm so glad I got a lifetime sub to STO before that deal warped away.

I'm totally convinced that this offer too, is a limited time deal, and that I should shell out $200 before time's up! I will never get the chance again.

It seems pretty obvious that this promotional thing is intended to be aimed at NW players, to get them to come here, rather than aimed at players here, to get them to buy what is worthless to any player here.

The real question is...why tell us about this?

Seriously? Who is the intern in your marketing department that comes up with this garbage? 200 bucks to get items that are essentially garbage AND that a player will cease to use within an hour's playing time (starting from scratch)?

Better yet, who is the person responsible for approving this garbage? Rot at the core spreads outward.

That seems rather UN-logical...

According to Them, STO has been steadily increasing it's numbers for some time now.

Whereas, NW is just starting out and most likely ISN'T getting the number of players Their "metrics" would like...

This is obviously a deal to get more STO players to try NW.

(and PAY for that chance)

Brandon, quick question -- If you already bought the founder's pack a while ago, do you still get the goodies listed for STO (and the other games)?

You sure do. It's listed on the page near the middle:

I feel like the marketing team is jumping the shark with this hero of the north pack, andorian bits or not.

There will probably be players willing to pay for it, but it's pretty out there.

So for $200 you get:

Neverwinter Extra crap (Favorite Crap is the Cloak of Useless Items, which is what the entire offer is, and should be renamed)
Then you get the Andorian Starter Pack crap..
Then you get access to all the other PWE crap..

I don't have the disposable income to even warrant the thought of picking up the Hero of the North. I played in one of the NWO Beta weekends, and to be honest, I was not impressed with the game. It just does not feel like a D&D Game. It feels too much like an Action shooter then an RPG. Heck actually it feels more like Champions Online with D&D re-skin. Which doesn't surprise me since it was made by the same makers of Champions Online.

Now if the game was more like DDO + WoW, maybe I would have been more interested and looking to try to scrounge up the $200 for the Hero of the North.

Oh well, I know you'll sell a few to Whales. An good for them.
You think that your beta test was bad?
