I hear ya. I can't afford the big pack either. However! Since you're a lifer you can use a combo of stipend and dil to get the stuff from the packs individually once it's released. That's what I plan to do anyway.

Mine appeared as saying Star Trek Online - Preorder.
STO is about my Liberated Borg Federation Captain with his Breen 1st Officer, Jem'Hadar Tactical Officer, Liberated Borg Engineering Officer, Android Ops Officer, Photonic Science Officer, Gorn Science Officer, and Reman Medical Officer jumping into their Jem'Hadar Carrier and flying off to do missions for the new Romulan Empire. But for some players allowing a T5 Connie to be used breaks the canon in the game.

As a fleet leader, I had this marvelous thought of preordering the legacy pack for one of my members in the fleet. Is there anyway you could preorder the package for someone else's account???

which is true. they are too very different versions of expansions and they have 2 very different 'stores'

cryptics store looks like it's trying to do business. where as tors store, I swear is just a joke shop. it's pretty pointless imo.

they are both f2p in name but their models are worlds apart.

My activated list only shows as:
  • Star Trek Online Public Test Shard
  • Star Trek Online Lifetime Subscription
  • Star Trek Online - Digital Deluxe

Nothing in there about the Romulan pack.

You could send him the money. Otherwise there is no code to be transferred or something like that...

How or why is it so hard to understand that ppl think 100+ bucks is too expensive?

We are not saying that 33& in the c-store is bad, but rather that comparing this to other expansion packs, this seems way overpriced, when normal exp packs run from $10-$30 and maybe in rare cases $50 for a big exp pack.

That is what ppl are complaining about, not that we get 33% of in the c-store...
