2020 10th Anniversary Days of Giveaways - discuss and comment

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'm not usually one for costumes and role play, but extra options are always nice.
    +1 for the Picard Uniform.

    Thanks Cryptic! Adding tailor options is always a good thing, even better when they're free.

    hope we get account wide rewards and not 1 time claim on a character...

    So do you think we will get any over the old T1 to T5 ships? still waiting on them to reprice the old ships since a T6 can be used at all lvls now.

    Yeah. Misread that from my phone.
    Not to say that it will not be a 10 day giveaway, but it would merely be speculation at this point.

    B.t.w. these were the previous giveaways:

    The Picard Uniform's intreasting, chronalogicly Picard is before STO, and it actually looks almost like a predecessor to the modern day oddessy uni

    Any giveaway is good but I wish they gave something for KDF/KDF alligned players too same time
  • captainbrian11captainbrian11 Member Posts: 588 Arc User
    back when discovery first came out they gave away the discovery feddy uniform for free too IIRC. so it looks like this is STO's new MO when a new trek series comes out.

    The 2399 Uniform claimed by a Character unlocks it for all the appropriate Characters in the Account.

    Thanks for the gift. I hope we get more freebies. That would certainly improve what we've seen for the tenth anniversary. I'd still say Cryptic could've done a better job building up to it, though.

    They've still not finished that build up, so your comment is a bit premature.

    Good point. Then I will say that my post is true...so far. We will see what they will yet do. Hopefully, things will improve.

    Indeed. If there's only one episode, I would be disappointed and agree with you.

    Nah, you were right with your first post. They started talking about the 10th anniversary how many months ago, now?
    And so far, we've seen an ugly ship whose stats seems very interesting (on paper), a "new" STF that lacks any originality, news about changes that are gonna be problematic for many and some tweets annoucing stuff like "in the booth with *someone*" - plus the last one speaking about "episodes".
    So, with only 4 days left to go? Yep, they could've done a much better job building up to it.​​

    Not agreeing with someone doesn't give you the right to be an TRIBBLE.

    Ci sono tre tipi di giocatori:
    - quelli a cui non va mai bene niente... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.

    I really hope the best part of the event remains unrevealed. AND it won't be yet another 12k bundle to buy but something available for all players without any zen grind with current dilex exchange rates. (Which will get even worse than ever.) The coming event seems rather usual right now, nothing really "special" Cryptic claimed to come. And that Omega bop drama kinda spoils the beginning of the event for me too. But I really really hope there will be something better coming to at least equal things out for me.
  • jennycolvinjennycolvin Member Posts: 1,088 Arc User
    Rivera did speak about episodes, so unless it's a typo we're gonna get more than one episode.
    Of course, we won't know for sure until the event has ended, but so far it feels awefully underwhelming.​​

    Nice on uniform DID this go on account or just the 1 toon?

    It's acct-wide. If it was per toon they would say so when they announce it.

    Usually things like Services/Slots/etc from the C-Store are per bound to whoever picks it up and don't go account wide.
    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.

    Yes, they have botched it so far. Can they salvage it? We'll see, I guess. The decoded transmission is interesting, but only because other players have made it available for me to see. I think they should've been a little more open about that one.

    Todays free giveaway is 5 Lockbox Keys (Bound to character). They can be claimed under promotions tab in the Zen Store.
  • sennahcheribsennahcherib Member Posts: 2,823 Arc User
    thx for the giveaway, i don't open boxes and as these keys are bound to character, I guess that i'm going to open Borg gamble boxes. :)
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,477 Arc User
    thx for the giveaway, i don't open boxes and as these keys are bound to character, I guess that i'm going to open Borg gamble boxes. :)

    do infinity boxes... if something in the borg box you want wait till it gets rolled into infinity... that way if you dont get something you want... you have more options. not like these keys expire and go poof.

    Or do infinity now, sell what you get for credits, then buy what you want from the Borg box on the Exchange.
  • lordmerc22lordmerc22 Member Posts: 776 Arc User
    Todays giveaway is very good, I will also keep the keys to use them on the new borgbox
  • avoozuulavoozuul Member Posts: 2,961 Arc User
    They could've at least made them bound to account.
  • foppotee#4552 foppotee Member Posts: 1,702 Arc User
    I would've thought for a 10th anniversary 10 keys but since I always lose 5 will be good too for short-term excitement followed by STO dreams shattered.
    The question is now to use the keys immediately on an Infinity or try to exert patience & wait for the Borg lockbox?

    A bit of a nothing-burger since I'll lose but still a nice little gesture, thanks to Cryptic!

    The award ship is ... I will put this as kindly as possible ... bad. If it was the ship of some pirate prince who took captured parts of ships and welded them together I might say ok. I don't post often but I have to say "What were you thinking?" I hope you offer a different option as well.
