    Awesome so at least half of it I can get something for it. Although it would be great being this is about the Empire if you already own the Ferasan if you could get the playable federation Klingon being this is about the Klingon arc and all that good stuff.

    I was running out of room on my latest Delta Recruit, and I would love to get another T6x Experimental Ship Upgrade. :)

    The Year of Klingon isn't about those petaQ in the Federation, it's all about Orions fighting for the Empire!

    You must excuse my poor english and, maybe, that this was already answered somewhere but...
    In today's giveaway (Elite Services Starter Pack - Promotional) I can't purchase the item. On the Promotional Tab, the item appears as "Available" yet seems as it was already purchased. There's a red warning saying: Cannot purchase "Elite Services Starter Pack - Promotional" yet because you must first purchase a different product. Please re-read the product's description.

    Sorry but... What I must first purchase? What product must I buy to get to this?
    Yes, I was very lucky in other giveaways and got this in other promotions. The weird thing is in the Slot/Services tab, I can buy with 1000zen the Elite Services Starter Pack.

    Thank you all for your help and/or explanations/ideas.

    Today's giveaway are 12 inventory slots and the giveaway should go live in about three and a half hours.

    Ah. Might have been nice to note a time, as well as a date, in the official announcement. My kids decided 6am Pacific was plenty late to sleep on a Saturday, so figured I might as well log in and claim the inventory slots - which aren't there yet (it's 8:08 as I type this).

    However, I do share Johnny's puzzlement. I have something called a "First Time Buyer's Pack" that says "Available", and is not greyed out on the menu, but when selected it tells me I'm not eligible and to "read the description" - which merely says what it is. Is this merely a visual glitch, representing something I actually claimed so long ago I've forgotten, or is this an actual problem?

    IF what I saw in the threads is right...it should go "live" round 10-11am Pacific time? So adjust accordingly for your own time.
    IF that is the case they REALLY should put that in the announcement, it would lead to less confusion.

    I would have thought, that after more than 10 years of being a global product they would have learned to include at least one reference time of when they will make the things appear in game. There are not only US players here you know.... the 22nd is going to end here soon....

    Claim period is usually for 24 hours so there's no rush in claiming. In relation to time it would be around 6 pm BST you can claim from

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11488653-four-days-of-giveaways!

    WHY can't someone there put in the starting time in as UTC or GMT if you wish, or is ever one there the Tin Man of Wizard of Oz fame. I sure some one has a brain there, why not use it. Yes you people are very frustrating a good percentage of the time lately.
  • postagepaidpostagepaid Member Posts: 2,846 Arc User
    The time and dates given by blogposts and announcements often comes across as "oh hey, here's some numbers for you"

    The game is thankfully mostly immune to the vagaries of cryptic time and around 5pm GMT (or 6pm BST) is the usual turnover time for events and whatnot.

    Correct... which is also 10 AM Pacific (as I quoted earlier).

    They usually post the starting times in Pacific time (which at this time of year is UTC-7) as that is where their offices are located. This particular blog however did not include the time at all.

    There's a slight touch of disappointment that we get playable Ferasans after the Klingon and Delta Recruit events are done.
    Still, it's always nice to receive free stuff. Thank you, I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the Civil War.

    I missed the inventory slots giveaway due to an extended work schedule, does anyone think there may be a "second chance" on any of these fine gifts?

    I noticed that, too.

    Guess it is about time to let the cat in..
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    I found today's freebie in the "On Sale" Tab of the Zen Store, NOT the "Promotions" tab as the article originally states.
