Some time ago I purchase a Dyson Science Destroyer from the Lobi store with my main character. I was not around for the 4th Anniversary, so I had never unlocked the ship. When I saw it in the shop the first time, I was surprised. I had the Lobi on hand then and was feeling adventurous, so I bought the ship to see if it was any good. I was surprised to discover that it was in fact a decent ship, and given the proper setup it could become quite the powerhouse.
So, recently, when I dusted off another character that had one of the C-Store versions of the Dyson, I got it in my head to try and find the Lobi ship for them as well to help in completing the console set. I thought I might find it on the Exchange, as practically every ship from the Lobi store can be found there. But to my dismay, I found that it was not available there. Curious, I called up the Lobi shop to see how much it was again and to see if there was a reason why it wasn’t on the exchange. To my greater dismay, I discovered that the Dyson Science Destroyer is bound to character when purchased. Not only that, it’s the only ship in the Lobi store that cannot be traded or resold.
Why? Why is the Dyson Science Destroyer bound to character on pickup? Why can it not be sold on the exchange or traded to another character? Is there an explanation for this aside from “It’s an anniversary ship?” If it’s available in the Lobi store, then it follows that it too could be sold or traded like all its Lobi ship brethren. Is it possible that we can change this?
