So, after filing a ticket to a GM (who told me they can't help and that I should contact the dev team and closed the ticket) and filing an ingame bug report, I am finally coming here.
My problems with missing traits started after I leveled mastery on the T6 Intel Assault Cruiser which trait showed up fine after a map change, like any other traits I acquired up until that point. I then upgraded the T6 Intel Assault Cruiser to the fleet version like I usually do.
Here's what happened after that:
One week ago on Friday, I bought Attack Pattern Delta Prime for quite a sizeable amount of EC from the exchange, opened the pack and nothing happened, even after several game client restarts, map changes from system space/sector space/ground and even a few forced verification of game files on client restarts (which is when I submitted my original ticket).
I then tried to level mastery on the T6 Vonph Dreadnought (again, bought for a sizeable amount of EC) and nothing happened as well. The trait "Peak Efficiency" did not show up no matter what I did.
Investigating further, I opened the box with the "Overwhelming Force/Tactical Retreat" ship trait, chose "Tactical Retreat" and again, nothing happened.
I then tried out a few genetic resequencers for additional ground and space traits, namely "Eyes Of The Swarm", "Agony Modulator", "Coalition Squad Tactics" and "Blaze Of Glory". I also leveled the T6 Exploration Cruiser mastery for the "Explosive Polarity Shift" trait just for the fun of it. Nothing on all 4 traits.
In the meantime, I have also deactivated all traits and dismissed a few ships just to see if that would fix the problem. Which it did not. I am still reluctant to dismiss my fleet, lockbox or lobi ships, though. Deleting this character also is not an option since it is my main.
My conclusion: no new traits, be it personal space, personal ground or ship will be added to the list of available traits on this specific AoY character. Something is seriously wrong. And it all started after I leveled my beloved T6 Intel Assault Cruiser which I have been waiting for so long to get ... funny enough, I don't see any other issues with this specific char.
Anyone who can help me out?
