    I did not merge this with the other email thread, because this is about a separate email message. Also, from what I understand, these emails were sent out by PWE not Cryptic, and Cryptic is looking into it. More than that I cannot say at this time.

    Fair enough. :)

    Assuming that I'm understanding this correctly, I'm happy to hear that it was PWE who sent these because I've been worried they came from someone, dare I say, less reputable.

    More on topic: got the mail too, no unclaimed rewards in the promotions tab.

    I got the letter too. The strange thing is, the third box showing off freebies (The two +'s) is in another language. "Et bien plus encore". I know what it means, but it's still odd that the letters weren't even properly cobbled together.

    That, or my universal translator is acting up.

    I got last night, checked, nothing. I assumed it was some sort of mix up on their side.

    my personal hypothesis is that it was s limited time promo, but the mailer daemon was too slow and we got notified after the promo was over.

    I got it this time, as well, and like everyone else I see nothing in the 'Welcome Banner'...also, the email was partly in French! Seein as I'm from midwest US, this is surprising lol

    Different email, images are the same as the last one but text in the new points us to an as yet unknown feature of the obnoxious lander, assuming they classify that as a welcome banner.

    Don't scare me like that. :p
    Maybe it's Bethesda, and they're offering free skooma to all of the Caitians and Ferasans as a alternative to ketracel.

    I think I'd rather go with Nepeta. It's less brain damage inducing.

    Arrrggghhhh, why, why, why do you tease me like this ?

    The first time, about a week ago or so, it was just an honest mistake. Now it just becomes annoying, as they're flaunting their 'We really do not care' attitude a way too ostentatiously. Stop sending out that sh*t if you don't mean it.

    I got the remedy.

    Is this really that baffling? They presumably generated a mailing list (using the wrong data) and then rather than update that list, just used the original list again.
  • postagepaidpostagepaid Member Posts: 1,720 Arc User
    Maybe they were confirming they messed up the last time and messed that up as well.

    LOL. The universe may very well collapse under that one. :P

    Hehe; love that hammer picture! :) Nothing so drastic will be needed, though, I hope. They just need to get their act together. And while it may in fact be PWE sending these out, I doubt they're doing so without Cryptic knowing about it.

    It's not illegal as far as I know. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepeta

    I really think Arc/Cryptic and PerfectWorld need to get their act together. I'm gettiung annoyed by these fake/wrong emails they send out and the fact they never apologise and never make up for them. At this point...they send out so many fakes to lure people back on, they should actually give something. Has anyone contacted them about it directly?

    Come on...get your act together guys.
  • disqord#9557 disqord Member Posts: 432 Arc User
    You know, after it happened twice, you'd think there would be some sort of official response. An announcement maybe, a thread, even just a comment. Instead there's just nothing.

    Bit annoying that this issue is going to go unaddressed.

    what is the ingame welcome banner? that's where it says to collect.

    it's the annoying 4 pane window when you log in AFAIK
  • baddmoonrizinbaddmoonrizin Member Posts: 3,923 Community Moderator
    No, the "Welcome Back" banner is a specific banner that pops up for this. If you didn't get it, you didn't get it.

    ^Yes, I'm aware that there are people who received the email, yet did not get the welcome back banner. I'm one of those people. Both times. I'm just clarifying that said banner is NOT the Landing Page.

    I just assumed the 'free' stuff mentioned in the email I received was the Recruit Rewards you get on your Jemmy be reaching the 'milestones' in your little device thing.
    Sometimes I think I play STO just to have something to complain about on the forums.
