# 1 Lifetime Subscription
11-21-2013, 02:44 PM
Hi folks

I am looking at buy a lifetime subscription to STO. But I was wondering if it only lasts for a year or is it an actual lifetime? In other words you only have to pay once.

cheers folks god speed.

Lifetime means life time.

So long as servers are live, you will benefit. Pay once, benefits "forever."

When you buy a Lifetime Subscription, you buy it for the life of the game, and you only pay one time and you're a subscriber forever (as long as the game is live).

The cost to subscribe month to month is $15. Multiply that by 12 you get $180. I would not pay $300 a year if I could pay a lot less. The math speaks for itself.
So, I just push the buttons and things blow up? Fascinating...

It's not $300 a year, it's $300 one-time payment, which means you never pay again.

However, future expansions in the game will not be covered by the Lifetime perks. As an example the LoR bundles are not included and had to be purchased separately...

Nope, expansions are completely free for everyone. The LoR bundles are not expansions. Those are just C-store items that were bundled together for one price. They are not required to play the free expansion content.

It's time for STO to get a complete UI overhaul.

I was tempted into purchasing a lifetime sub, as I really enjoy the game. But I'm extremely unhappy with the unstated BS of the sale itself.

Next time they put it on "sale" they can start by using the correct pricing. It is not "$300 regularly". Well, maybe it is now, but full price used to be $250. They can just be honest and make it $50 off if they want to, but this revisionist history is insulting. No sale.

The first week I joined ( 1230 days ago) spent the $300 to get a lifetime sub...In my opinion it is not worth the the money. The few rewards you get really don't amount to much, I do enjoy the fireworks on occasion but the rest is blah.....just my opinion
