    Thanks for the doff, Cryptic! Sure there will be players crying that they didn't get a free ship but not me. I always love any free stuff!

    Yay! :) Very cool! Thank you.

    This is like the 15th Giveaway blog that has had confusing Limitations written in them.

    Please Can we Make this Stuff Clearer..... All it needed to say was...
    Account Wide Unlock, Limit 1 Per Character, Only One Doff can be on Active Duty at a time

    Boom. No confusion
    *Note: A reclaim version of this item will appear once claimed. This is only meant for future characters made on this account. Only one version of this item can be used at a time by a player.

    The Bold Part makes it sound like only one on an Account. Which we know isn't the case. Please can we get better at this..... PLEASE

  • aaron734aaron734 Member Posts: 16 Arc User
    Does this mean those of us who use Mac will be able to participate? Will the C-Store still be closed? Shame.

    That is correct. It should be three giveaways, one today, one saturday and one wednesday.​​

    Uh... odd. O.o

    Damage to Borg on ground and space
    or
    +5% all damage, ground only

    And the guy is a "Ground Warfare Specialist - Ground", yet... doesn't count as such? O.o

    But when are we going to be getting full body skins for these guys? There are a lot of really cool uniforms my Borg characters can't use right now because of this.
  • saber1973asaber1973a Member Posts: 1,221 Arc User
    The dates and lengths of each giveaways calculates to 2 different giveaways...
    ... is that only 2 ... nah... each giveaway is great... because it's free...

    Besides that DOFF looks like it's account unlock that will be active for later new toons... :D

    Honestly, the 'this is only meant for future characters made on this account' confused me a lot more than anything else. I haven't claimed it yet (just found out about it), so it has me pondering the possible, albeit ridiculous, interpretation of 'you have to claim now on all current characters, but future ones are okay'.

    Infinite possibilities have implications that could not be completely understood if you turned this entire universe into a giant supercomputer.p3OEBPD6HU3QI.jpg
