    not sure how tough it is for them to do, but giving the ability to pick any tier 5 ship of yourt choice would be awesome.
    And for the giveaway i look at it like this do I get 2 things out of the 7 or 8 i can be real happy with last year was the ship and free dry dock slots, that way awesome.

    This year 5 phoenix packs so far is the only thing im real happy for, so hoping for 1 more.

    Can't make everyone happy all the time, so I figure 2 good ones out of it makes it a great anniversary giveaway

    I have all of the ships on my main acct. Jhanell will have to scramble to get two more levels as she can't claim it even at lvl 43. Shouldn't be too hard, she's doing Nimbus and ranked three times before Shangdu.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Thanks again Cryptic!

    4 costumes, 5 Phoenix packs, 10K Dil, 200 marks, 3 x T5 ship account-wide unlocks are very nice gifts for us players.
    Actual giveaways were:

    2 costumes, 5 Phoenix packs, 10K Dil, 200 marks, 2 x T5 ships, so not so nice gifts.

    Well, if anyone's a DS9 fan...today's your lucky day and you get a sweet new ride in the form of a T5 Defiant. WOOT!

    :)

    Sadly not a ship I plan on flying given my tastes, but I do feel its help in the Admirality system already. Thank you Cryptic...

    Does this mean I should be miffed that I only unlocked the merc costume and got no ships?

    Or pleased that I got 4 costumes and potentially have 3 faction t5's by the end of the weekend?

    Or both as I have a lifer account and f2p.

    Now I'm wondering how much levelling time my ps4 account will have, not a huge fan of escorts on PC but they're actually kind of fun on console.

    I was only able to claim the Talaxian suit and Dhelan Warbird Retrofit since I already had all the other costumes and ships. However I am kind of bummed how the KDF only get the very same ship they got for free during last years giveaway despite the fact that I only have two gorn KDF toons which I rarely use.

    Certainly good for admiralty. Synergizes very well with the Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit (a giveaway not too long ago) and the Science Vessel Retrofit I got, I think, from the Voyager set.

    No ships or costumes for me. I have all the C-Store Ships and all but the Racing Uniform. We still have two days to go.

    Star Trek, the series beloved for its humanity and intense moral quandaries on what it really means to be a good person.

    You know what? Some of you "higher moral standpoint" people are making me sick. Slinging insults and belittlements at anyone who might have a different opinion than you, hiding behind loaded "My poor sweet disabled grandma" anecdotes and making anyone who dares have a different opinion seem like the bad person because they're "entitled children" who "can't be thankful for anything."

    This is a disgusting affair, and I had planned on leaving after editing out my original comment. But, after seeing how far things have devolved, I feel I might need to step in help you all take a good, long, hard look at yourselves and your bitter insults thinly veiled behind a cloak of "reasonable arguments."

    Three ships I don't have (good to be a newbie sometimes) as I don't see the point of buying them yet with a fairly sizeable library of T6 ships left to acquire. I only have one upgrade token though.

    Now to read the argument that seems to be going on back there.

    thats the clever part on Cryptic's side. they know many of us will buy the upgrades to get to T-5U

    which raises a question... if you want a fleet version to you upgrate to T-5U THEN fleet?

    I would only consider upgrading a ship to T5-U when it's either one of them where it comes for free (obviously) or if it is the one ship I want to fly on a character (will then be upgradeable for free on all other toons, too). Just upgrading it to fly around a bit doesn't really cover the costs IMO.

    the b'rel makes sense to upgrade, since it's a submarine the Deiant because, well, Defiant.

    Yeah, I found that out. Got her there today after I figured out how to make my game stop freezing every few minutes. She now has that pretty Defiant. Still gonna miss out on the other two this time around, but that's okay. It's not my main account, just a play one.

    If you upgrade C-Store T5, it's Fleet T5 version get's a free upgrade and vice versa.

    I'm thinking B'rel. I can find a lot more use from the enhanced battle cloak and spare console slot (as it doesn't come with one) and my one Tac guy is KDF. I hadn't even thought about the fleet version actually. I have a long way to go before I get to the story disruptor sets though which themselves are behind long and annoying missions.

    Well, I'm glad I checked under my main again. I didn't have the T5 Defiant or the Dhelan. Just the T4 Defiant refit, B'rel refit and T'Varo refit. Thanks, Cryptic, I did need a couple of those ships on my main! *Happy dance*

    I would think something like an Ultra Rare, or even in rare cases, an Epic Phoenix Prize Token would be ideal in giveaway situations like these. From the gift-giver's position you're giving away a nice gift with the ability for the recipient to choose how best they would appreciate it. In a worst case scenario where a player has all of those ships the player still receives something that they can benefit from. Similar to the (5) Phoenix Prize Packs earlier minus the "randomization" of it. Cryptic could code a way for one T5 ship out of the C-Store catalog to be given away of recipients choosing however since that probably doesn't exist & the Phoenix Tokens do the latter would probably be easier to implement. With the current method Cryptic knows not everyone will benefit from the purposed gifts. It's a tough call by Cryptic & imo they falter more than they impress when delving with customer service, but in the end these are "gifts" which we're not entitled to.

    Perhaps you should censor &/or shutdown this thread if there's not enough pros & too many cons agreeing with your side, baddmoonrizin, besides there is another official thread dealing with all this jazz under the Galactic News Network anyways. Otherwise, like most threads in these forums it seems like it's just 2 sides discussing opposing views & being pretty civil at it too compared to all the other threads.
