Weighing in here. I was burned on my last "lifetime" sub on another game and was reminded that "lifetime" means the life of the game. So, I have to ask myself just how long does STO have? Are the perks worth paying $200 for? I mean, when it comes down to the real wallet... 1 year doing a monthly sub is $180... To really feel like I got my $200 worth with a lifetime sub I would need at least 2 years of the game with the perks...
It is a tough choice for me.... I know you get a little extra dil to refine daily, 500 zen a month, and some XP boosts so far that I have read but, I have to ask myself if I am really hurting in these areas in the first place?
Would like some honest input by the life-subbers. I know many of you have been around a long time on this game and may have had a lifetime for a while... Would you buy a lifetime sub right now with a game that has been running as long as this one has? There seems to be the MMO curse of 9yrs where things start to fall apart. WoW, EVE, CoH/CoV. I still play EVE but it is dying fast....especially since after 13yrs they decided to go to the F2P route and pay to win.... short term big money before the close of the game.
Anyways, If I am going to drop $200 into STO (again) I wonder if it will be around long enough to enjoy the perks...Or if that $200 should dropped into the c-store and be swimming around in a sea of new ships I can play right now.... hmmm
