Star Trek Online: Call of Valor

A Star Trek Online Fan-fiction.

C-Store whiners: Shut the hell up.

A lot of people have complained about STO having a store for additional content that costs money on top of the monthly fee to use. Frankly, I’m sick of it. These people aren’t seeing the big picture and aren’t using their brains.

I’ve seen several people with Lifetime Subscriptions that have been complaining as well. To them especially, I say: SHUT THE HELL UP! You want to know why there’s a C-Store? Look no further than your lifetime subscription. Yes, it’s expensive for a Life Sub; but running an MMO is also expensive. These guys are busting their butts and putting out an amazing game; they are NOT doing this for free, though. They have mouths to feed, and they have to think of not just the bills now, but the bills that will need to be paid in 6 months, a year, two years. Everyone that’s bought a lifetime sub is NO LONGER putting subscription money into their account, so that money has to come from somewhere.

Here’s where the C-Store comes in.

This allows people the privilege of being able to buy a Life Sub and yet still keep the game alive. There’s a lot of people working hard to make STO an amazing game, and keep it an amazing game. Those people all have families to feed, rent/mortgage to pay, cars to keep on the road… ALL of that is part and parcel of making and sustaining a great MMO game like STO. Are you really so arrogant as to think that they’re doing it all for the hell of it? This is a passion for them, but it’s first & foremost a job. If the money wasn’t coming in, the game would close and they’d all move on to other games that DID pay.

So if you’re gonna gripe about the C-Store even existing, just shut the hell up.
