Well, their reasoning is, free players have less hesitation to buy in teh c-store since they are saving money for a subscription and get used to it so eventually pay more then a subscription. That would be the ideal case for them.
Although even when FTP attracts 10 players that spend 5 bucks a month in their store that's better for them then 3 players spending 15 bucks on a monthly subscription.
Ah, yes, the C-Store. I forgot about that. Hopefully they'll clean up in the C-store, because I love this idea.
You'll love the C-Store. NOW you can buy mystery boxes that have a snowball's chance in hell to unlock ultra-rare items like jem 'Hadar bug ships or unique Duty officers.
of course if you get worthless junk out of it you can always buy another and try again! Greta, isn't it?
In other news, you get a whole new bunch of ships with extra powers that make the baseline ships look a bit meh.
Sounds great. Can't wait to try it out after so long. That said, I wish Cryptic would let the game receive patches even without an account. I know Blizzard allows this for WoW. I just think it's a good idea. Plus, it lets me pass the time while I wait for F2P kick in. Instead, I'll have to wait until January 17th to update the game. A year's worth of updates. Feh.
