    Agreed. My one captain that still has a T5 (and won't be upgrading to T6), can really use today's free giveaway. Honestly, all the giveaways this time have been really awesome.

    Edit: I'm also really looking forward to the stuff in the new rep!

    Agreed! Free stuff is always appreciated and this giveaway had some great stuff.​​

    Good thread, OP. ^^

    Cryptic, I'd also like to add my sincere thanks for the generous free gifts that have been given away to celebrate the release of a new season. Its much appreciated. Okay I can't use today's gift because I upgraded to T6 a while back, but there are friends of mine that are using the upgrade token so I'm happy to see that too.

    And no, there isn't any sarcasm in this post.

    I always like free but, this last one (free upgrade token) may actually keep one of my returning friends playing for a bit longer. So, thanks Cryptic.

    Some cool ideas with this GA. Thanks Cryptic :)

    As much as we would all like to have more & better free stuff, I'm quite pleased with the items Cryptic has provided for the new season. Especially 2 Spec points per character; this alone saves me weeks of grinding for the 6 'toons I now have! Events like this one make me glad I bought the LifeTime Subscription. B)

    Nice free stuff useable pretty much for most of us this time - appreciating it as well. Because... who doesn't like a freebie there and there, from time to time :3

    Thank you indeed, much appreciated !

    always nice to get free stuff, thanks.

    When I think about everything we've been through together,

    maybe it's not the destination that matters, maybe it's the journey,

     and if that journey takes a little longer,

    so we can do something we all believe in,

     I can't think of any place I'd rather be or any people I'd rather be with.

    Free stuff is good. Stuff I can use is good. Free stuff I can use is great! Thanks, Cryptic!

    Sort of odd given they said the free stuff was for 5 days. But I guess they want to start S11 with a bang. Might even be a free T5U ship to use the upgrade token on since he did a little wink when someone said that.

    And complete agree with thanking Cryptic. Only been playing since end of May and I've got a free T6 Nandi, outfit, spec points, upgrade token, hover board, ship slots, inv slots and I can't even remember what else. Oh. and all the free Dil weekends! They seem to be very generous with giving away stuff. A shame some people are greedy and complain about stuff they get for free.

    Yes, very good items. Much appreciated.

    Right on! Love the free giveaways, and it seems that every time they do it the freebies get better. That also might be because the game - and the shinies - are all getting better with each update, too.

    Really, really appreciate things like even upgrade tokens being on the ok-to-give-away list. That's a big bucket of "thanks for playing, keep enjoying!" :smiley:

    Yea thanks cryptic, was a great giveaway, apart from the 100 marks thing. That didn't really make me happy.
  • sennahcheribsennahcherib Member Posts: 2,823 Arc User
    thx for the giveaway.

    the doff pack was meh; my fault, i'm unlucky when I open: boxes, doff packs, R&D box etc. :p the 2 spec points per toon wow! awesome. I don't need the ship upgrade, but for the players who needed 1 token, this is a great gift and the 100 marks were interesting for my new toon. :)

    yes. the news is available in french too. finally the upgrade token will be useful. thx for the ships. :)

    Actually having way more fun on that hoverboard than I probably should be. It's surprisingly addicting. I may be flashing back to my days flying around SWG on my swoop. I used to just log on solely so I could ride for hours.

    Thank you.

    Indeed. A hearty 'thank-you', Cryptic for the fantastic freebies! I can't ever recall in 15 years of playing MMOs such great items being given away just to say 'thanks for playing'. Free inventory space is absolutely unheard of and items such as the Ship Upgrade Token and 2 (!) free spec points are equally unprecedented. Typically, in other MMOs I've played, the servers would need to be done for a good week before I'd expect to receive even one such a 'gift', let alone 5 days of them. B)

    Again, thank-you very much, it is greatly appreciated!​​
