Champions Online Lifetime Subscriptions Return

Champions Online is once again offering lifetime subscriptions, an interesting move since Cryptic's superhero MMORPG is soon going free-to-play. In outlining the perks of this $299.00 lifetime commitment, they say: "When Champions Online goes Free-to-Play, Lifetime Subscribers will receive all the benefits of Gold Members in perpetuity." Thanks Massively.

Original Lifetime price

Ok so it was originally offered for 199.99, and then taken off the table when the game went live.

Then they offer one for Star Trek Online for 249.99 until the game goes live, then raise it to 299.99 after the game goes live.

Now I could see 50 bucks, but how do you justify 100 bucks when the game is about to become Free 2 Play?

You don't, they are just trying to milk dumb fanboys for cash one last time. There are a handful of players that will probably buy it and complain when it shuts down 6 months later (like Hellgate players.)

It is really simple, you don't offer a lifetime subscription when you think you have a highly successful game on your hands.
