Not sure what the cost for new fleet bank tabs in CB cost, but in OB they were only 1,000 credits each. A tad low, I know. But the price on them in live? 1,233,000 credits. Yes, thats right. A little more than 1.2mil credits PER tab. Please tell me this is a display error.

The 250 member Fleet I am in has already purchased two tabs at that price. I donated 40,000 to fund the two tabs so far. If in four days I can donate 40,000 and still have 52,000 in my wallet then a 12 person guild can make about 100,000 each in about the same time and afford one tab. So they could theoretically afford all 7 extra tabs in 28 days if they don't spend money on anything else.

I don't necessarily see the price for each tab as too much but I do see Cryptic using fleet bank tabs as the main money sink to get rid of extra money in the economy. So what happens to the economy when everybody finally gets all 8 fleet bank tabs and there are no other money sinks such as crew replacement or ship repair to spend all that energy on?

Didn't you just answer your own question? "saving forever"....

That works fine for larger fleets. Not for the small ones.

Its way over priced and I am hoping it is a bug, though money which was very hard until LT Commander is much easier it is still alot to put to bare on fleets and is much higher then comperable MMOs.

Just found this in game and I too think it is stupidly over-priced.. I could understand 50-100k but 1.23 million? Thats way out of ball park for any fleet that doesnt have that many members.

Just how small a fleet are people looking to make ? 20 person fleet = 60k each, thats not horrible at all. By Lt Cdr 60k should be fairly easy to earn in 1-2 days of gameplay.

I don't think it's bad at all. Everyone's initial perspective is that 1.3mil is too expensive: except y'all are fresh Lt's running around in Miranda's. How can you possibly expect to come out of the gates with a fleet full of new characters and start with extra fleet bank slots? Wait until people start to hit Admiral, you'll all be rolling in credits and the 1.3 million won't seem like much at all.

As an individual at the end of OB I had a few million credits pass through my fingers. Yes, they reduced the value on items in live, but even now just leveling up to Commander without doing any farming at all and I've had close to a half million credits. Get a few people together and the price on those fleet bank slots really isn't that high.
