Can't exactly blame people there should be a credit option for subscribers and it not be extortionate.

My goal was to get the info about the title out to subs on the same day as the CC grant though so that if you wanted to get the title you could just save 10 coins. This way you would be able to get it just from those extra coins!

Are the 500 CCs all we're getting, or can we expect something thoughtful too?

They just gave you (as of right now) 1100 CCs for being a subscriber. (Monthly stipend plus this bonus.) That's about 10USD, which is probably pretty close to what you are paying for your subscription this month. If they give us another 500CC at the end of the month, then they just converted the cost of your sub this month into your cartel coin bank.

From a marketing standpoint, that's pretty thoughtful.

Is it what a large portion of subscribers were wanting? Not really, but that doesn't mitigate the guesture either.

Thoughtful would imply that the gesture requires thought. Throwing a fake $5 in an attempt to placate the masses is not thoughtful. It's nice, I won't deny that. If the one-time 500 CCs is part of something larger, great.

If we're only appreciated to the point of a one-off 500 extra CCs grant, though, I'd say that they don't appreciate us very much at all.

Doubtful we'll ever see anything even close to that, because you don't really care about the subscribers. It's clear this is just a cash shop game now, and that makes me sad. Consider my subscription over once my 6 months are up. I'll just switch preferred and buy my weekly unlocks on the gtn. I'm not going to keep paying you $15/month for $5 worth of coins. Subscribers are getting ripped off...end of story.
Cool man, you can send your 500cc to me. Since you obviously don't want/nor appreciate it. I accept PayPal.
