    I enjoyed the spec points, so thanks for those. But limiting the ship slots to one character only instead of an account unlock was a bit lame.

    My thoughts as well. Usually the third day is better than the second... :neutral:

    Still, I suppose it's better than nothing.

    I'm very envious. But you guys paid for extra perks and I hope you like your shiny new ships. :)

    The new ship slots is nice. I could use them. Bad part is which one to give it to?? My Fed and KDF could really use them.

    For those who are complaining that the KDF and Romulans get nothing out of the section 31 uniform, this is false, your Kalobi Bridge Officer can use it, I have mine wearing the section 31 uniform, along with fhe seirra skirt, so she doesn't look so out of place on a KDF ship.

    Thanks for all the gifts!

    Suppose that you were, as 'How I met your mother' calls it, eating a sandwich and didn't see that it was once per account, would you give us the opportunity to undo the claim and give it to a different character?
  • lordsteve1lordsteve1 Member Posts: 3,492 Arc User
    Exactly how many days of giveaways are there?

    The blog says log in between the 14th and 18th but it also say the final giveaway is the 2x ship slots?

    Anyone have any idea?!?!

    So that would make the info in the blog completely wrong then? As it clearly says the opposite in part of it.

    How are the post and blog wrong when they clearly state "leading up to the weekend".
    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.

    Because it clearly says "Log into the game on any character between August 14th at 10AM and August 18th at 10AM PDT."
    So that would indicate that the giveaway lasts until Monday/Tuesday and would therefore be 4 days.

    so, "you" put a bunch of account wide claimable on a special section, and next day, put a 1 time give away and we claim it on non important alt before realising it was claimable just on 1 alt >_>

    ... i needed it that on my main, instead of my alt i was levelling up ... noticed it to late ... why can't you guys make give away that don't leave a bad taste on players mouth !?
    it takes some amazing skills to TRIBBLE off players by giving free stuff ... amazing ... -.-´

    Hmm I haven't received anthing yet but I already own the Andromeda anyway. That being said I'm very happy with what we got. Two free spec levels for all our chars and 2 free ship slots are amazing. Thank you very much for that, Cryptic!

    Two extra ship slots for one character....

    Ok, I've figured out which one to give this to.

    Thank you :smiley:

    Thanks for the 2 slots, even though I thought it was like the spec points and claimable on all characters so I claimed them on the first one in order which is my main which really didn't need 2 more ship slots.

    FYI to anyone that hasn't claimed, it's once per account.

    What a sham of a giveaway!

    I want a pick of 5 lockbox and promotion ships for each of my toons, plus a daily stipend of 10k refined dilithium, and you gotta unlock every costume and ship in the store, except of course for those I already bought, plus create the ship I designed with 6 hangar bays and 28 boff seats.

    That would be the least you can do. Everything else is rubbish.

  • kozar2kozar2 Member Posts: 602 Arc User
    Yeh, how about a GIANT NOTE AT THE TOP saying it is one toon per account and not small print at the bottom. Do you people actually think before you do these things or do you do these things intentionally to TRIBBLE off the player base?

    I would if I could but I doubt those people who own it already will get a free code.

    Look before we leap, what kind of officers do you take us for.

    Sometimes you get caught up in the fun. Luckily I gave it to one of my Deltas, and I'll use it all eventually.

    Some of them have got to fury rather than simple anger. They got given extra cool stuff, how can that be so bad. You'd think Cryptic stole their TV.

    Our CM's don't have total control over what is given to us. The RMC giveaway from one of the Livestreams was 1/account (and even the CM's originally thought it was an account unlock)...and this has the same limitation. Unlike the RMC giveaway, however, the Ship Slots do have a C-Store value and have always been single-character unlocks. Sure, it's nowhere near as cool as a Costume or Spec Points on an account level... but it behaves exactly like the C-Store purchase without costing any Zen. Admittedly, it being a single-character unlock is the same reason I won't buy Ship Slots in the C-Store in the first place... but it's not like they took an account unlock and limited it to a single-character without warning or explanation. The ship slots are "meh", but at least they work as one might expect.

    For me... thanks for the free stuff, I'm going to go roll a twelve-sided die or something. Actually, I have one character with a lock box ship (I'm not really one for one-off purchases; even if I only plan to use an item on one character, I'd rather it be available account-wide), so I might as well use them there. Plus, he's a KDF Sci, so there's some metrics for you. :p

    Hehe, looks like I've still been playing too much lately... ah well. ;)

    Yeah, would have been nice to have this account wide, but thanks anyways. Luckily I logged into the right character that needed it.
