STO just went P2W.
LOL, I had to look up "P2W". (It means Pay-2-Win for anyone as naive as me.)
Yep, what happened to the promise that Cryptic made that C-store purchases would just be cosmetic and would not affect game play?
It sailed months ago, when they first started offering things like +1 ships and the Galaxy-X in the c-store. Not that you need any of this stuff really; while it's problematic to PvP, Cryptic doesn't, and has never really, cared about that aspect of their games. Hence why it's been left to rot for almost two years now.
