    Either way, I'm just trying to state that if you go to a physical game store (or have a physical game store orde one for you), you probably have a 99% chance to get a code (barring a mixup). If you order online, then you might not get a code, despite what the actual store says.

    Where does this fear-mongering come from? If there re-release it 2 years from now it might not have a code, but there is ZERO reason to think that any of the packages being printed as part of this run will for some reason magically -not- have the slip of paper with the code and the big sticker on the front announcing "hey you, yeah, you. BUY THIS, cuz its got an exclusive STO game code inside!"

    People are trying to ****ing FANTASIZE a problem into existence.

    Yeah, but since it's a Command ship, pretty much any other variant of the ship will be better.
  • nikeixnikeix Member Posts: 3,972 Arc User
    The lack of appeal in Command abilities is a whole separate problem - one where if you fix the problem (the abilities) all the symptoms (a bucket full of unloved command ships) goes away.

    @nikex this bit: "Players will only be able to claim the digital version of the ship for the Star Trek Online game by physically purchasing the expansion at their local game stores."
  • nikeixnikeix Member Posts: 3,972 Arc User
    Even if you buy online you WILL have a physical ship in your hands at the end of the transaction.

    And people are missing the REAL opportunity here: There are TONS of Attack Wing players who know nothing about STO. While the point of the promotion is to make those people more aware of the game's existence, there will be swarms of them who aren't interested and will have this neat little slip of paper left over from opening their game piece... that should sell on e-bay for as much or more as the whole pack cost them in the first place... Because believe it or not Cryptic DOESN'T know whether or not you walked into a game store vs. bought through an online retail page or whether you were the primary purchaser. All they will EVER see is the code being input into your account page...

    The word EXCLUSIVE!! in the ad-copy is a pretty strong sign that while there may be other T6 sovereign's at some point, the exact version/stats of one you get from putting in the code included in the physical miniature is NOT going to be sold separately in the zeni store. Ever.
    The only precedent is the Mirror Guardian, and yeah... that one was VERY similar. Except for a different spec. main was intel, Mirror Command.

    IF we get a different one, I'm guessing temporal.

    Yeah, I honestly doubt they'd make two different versions of the product.

    But, they could have, with instructions for companies to only sell versions with codes to those who walk into the store and buy the thing.

    All I'm trying to really say is that if one were to actually go to the store and buy a pack, then one would probably be guaranteed a code. However, if one were to just order a pack online, despite what the store says, they might not get a code.

    I only have one thing to say about that: if your local game store has more than one of each Wave 27 mini on order, you're in a major minority. We have 4 game stores in town, only one has any STAW minis on the shelves, and it's from wave 15, probably something that was special ordered and never picked up. I'm not exaggerating when I say this game is not very popular with players; the vast majority of people buying them are only doing so to collect the minis. D&DAW is even worse - I know literally nobody who has ever bought a mini and played the game with it, they get them as minis for the RPG.

    Wow, the two main gaming stores I go to have multiples of Wave 25 & 26 on their shelves, having pretty much sold out on the first 24.
    The one I went to this morning, actually ended up preordering 3 sets of Wave 27 because the game sells quite well around here.
    (Capital District of NY)

    They also sell a lot of the Star Wars Attack Wing miniatures and have a whole section devoted to all the Attack Wing games.
    (probably way more Wars than the Trek ones though)

    I have an idea....
    People are saying there is a new skin/material option for the sovereign on tribble.

    Can someone who owns the Assault Cruiser Refit go onto tribble and look at the console and see if the tooltip/description is different, if it includes a 2pc set info and mentions another console?

    Just a shot in the dark.
  • the1tiggletthe1tigglet Member Posts: 1,421 Arc User
    Uhm you're kidding right?

    Who thinks these things up? Seriously I have lists upon lists of starships that could be added to the game and this is the best they can do?

    Not to mention that there's almost 1/8th the number of ships for Romulans as the other two larger factions smh

  • nikeixnikeix Member Posts: 3,972 Arc User
    The people who think these things up are the ones that have to deal with financial reality and not players' BS whimsy. They have an opportunity to cross promote with Attack Wing, and the big thing going on over there is a new Sovereign release with some paint/translucent segments. They aren't dictating terms, they're taking the shots given to them.
  • imperatorpaveliimperatorpaveli Member Posts: 346 Arc User
    I looked on tribble and there's material options types 1-5. No new material I could see (probably got removed).
  • officerbatman81officerbatman81 Member Posts: 2,761 Arc User
    @imperatorpaveli
    Did you look at the console and see any changes denoting a set?
  • imperatorpaveliimperatorpaveli Member Posts: 346 Arc User
    I don't own the refit; thought any new materials would also be available on the stock T5 version of the Sovereign as well.
  • officerbatman81officerbatman81 Member Posts: 2,761 Arc User
    Okie dokie, thank you anyway @imperatorpaveli

    If anyone else can weigh in on this that would be great.

    Is this confirmed to be the t6 sovereign in sto? Can anyone post pics ?
  • officerbatman81officerbatman81 Member Posts: 2,761 Arc User
    No one can post pics because its not here yet, the wizkids ship piece comes out in November.
    But your proof can be found in the OP's link.
  • markhawkmanmarkhawkman Member Posts: 35,231 Arc User
    You can look at a pic of the plastic ship.

    They'd all float?
  • daveynydaveyny Member Posts: 8,227 Arc User
    You can look at a pic of the plastic ship.

    Except that pic is of the current Attack Wing model, not the new 2016 paint job.

    Well, the one movie made it seem like the contest was rigged, and that Slugworth had gone around personally distributing the golden tickets.

    the Sovereign class model revamp has gone live on tribble.

    I stopped by my local Flights of Fantasy in the Capital District earlier this week to pre-order Attack Wing 27. While it was not immediately found she took my info and would take care of it.

    Can someone check the Metreon Canister console on tribble to see if it lists a 2pc set and what that info says about the other console?
