Well, as this is a community forum where players can post a feedback, I just wanted to let the developers know my thoughts, maybe it helps them understand how some players think.

I started playing STO around 2 years ago and in the past had spent around 200 Euro a month buying some ZEN. Here and there it was even a bit more real cash. I would assume I have spent easily 4000 Euro in the past 2 years. No problem, I have a good job, I can afford it.

The more I played, the more I got frustrated by certain bugs, some nerfing of Lobi items, nerfing of good builds (I am still very angry about the trico nerf, as it was a viable way of shipbuild to have a chance against escorts in pvp) and consequently ignoring our community feedbacks. I got the impression, that the devs are only interested in buffing cannon escorts and trying to squeeze out even the last penny out of us players.
I wrote certain feedback e-mails/bug reports, etc. to the devs - guess what, never got any reply.

It was after the trico nerf, that I decided not to put a single Euro into this game any more and so far I am doing quite well.

I just noticed, that the LOR legacy pack received more items, to make more player buy it. It seems, that the sales numbers of this legacy pack is not satisfying. Well, Cryptic, its not the pack itself. It is your attitude towards paying members !

I dont mind spending 120 Euro for some stuff, if I think that the devs are doing a good job. They also need to make their earning. Over a year ago I spent 240 Euro for a lifetime membership with vastly any real benefits. No problem.

Devs, you can implement playable Borg, Iconians or whatever. You can bring ships with 10 front weapon slots. It won't change a thing for me.
Once the devs wrote "we know, that you can spend your time elsewhere, but we appreciate that you spend it with Star Trek Online". If you really fill this sentence with life and not just talking words - then you won't need to beg the community to buy your legacy packs by adding more and more stuff to it.

And this is for all you other players. Before replying some bull**it again, trying to insult me, trolling, and whatever - I dont care. I know I am right.

I am now considering it a lot more than I ever did with LTS, but the loss of over 25 euros in what I presume is VAT on goods and services coming into the EU is ticking me off.

120 euro = $157, the pack is advertised as $125.

Well, in fairness, those who purchased the Starter Pack can use the green forum titles too; the green forum titles are, therefore, not an accurate indicator of how many forum users purchased legacy packs.

And forum users make up a pretty low percentage of overall game-players.

nothing we can do about tax thier soon tax in US too .

But well worth it I bought it day 1 and also lifetime.

My whole fleet bought it and so did alot of my friends, and tbh do you actually have sales numbers to back your theory up as well?

Except that those who purchased the Starter Pack can only use the Survivor title. Every other title you see used - and some of the Survivor titles - are from the Legacy Pack.
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.

If I may...
You wrote bug reports (of which the Devs will receive 1000's every day) and didn't get a reply. You expect a personal, written response for every bug report? Seriously? I think you may have missed the fact that their response to bug reports is to try to fix the bug as a response. Which would you prefer? A reply saying "Thanks for your bug report, we're too busy replying to bug reports to do anything about it, but we do appreciate your efforts" or them FIXING the problem? I know which I prefer... Same goes for e-mails.

You wrote that you bought the LTS with "vastly any real benefits". I'm confused. Did you mean "NO real benefits", "HARDLY any real benefits" or "VAST numbers of real benefits"? I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume the first one. So, a free EXCLUSIVE ship is no real benefit? Exclusive forum titles and in game titles are no real benefit? Free EXCLUSIVE in game pets are no real benefit? Monthly ZEN stipend is no real benefit? Passive in game bonuses are no real benefit? Really? REALLY? WOW!

Yes.. thecosmic1 is right - only the "Survivor of Romulus" title is also available with the "Starter" pack.. the others are just available with the "Legacy" pack.
