Star Trek Online: Captain’s Blog, Marketing Mayhem

Updated Fri, Mar 05, 2010 by Medeor

This has not been a good week for Cryptic and Atari. After offering a discount on Star
Trek Online
plus 60 days of additional gametime, the founding customers of the game lost their collective minds. The forums boiled over and don't appear to be simmering down yet. With the wounds still fresh, Medeor starts adding some salt.

I feel bad for people who have had their feelings hurt or feel that they have been ripped off. In reality though, does that change the actual game? My theory is that people who were on the fence about renewing their subscription see this as a way to go out in a blaze of glory, "I'm quitting because Atari and Cryptic have wronged me and all those around me, and I'm not going to stand for it." If you feel that strongly, then have at it.

Crytpic and Atari should feel the wrath of the player base to a degree commensurate with the misdeed. The fervor on the forums has taken it to a whole new level though. Maybe there should be a group hug. Maybe not. Read the rest of the Captain's Blog and find out.
