Man I hope so! I bought several ships for Fed characters with my VA during the T-Giving and many of them were not showing as "purchased" "Free" or "Claimable" on my alts.
I have to say, this would be a deal breaker for me because of the wording in the purchase description. If indeed I can't claim these others ships, I'll probably be so angry and feeling like I was cheated I will walk away from the game (keep in mind I'm considering a lifetime sub.) Sure people are leaving for content reasons- but feeling completely cheated on a about a dozen c-store purchases will be the straw and my subscription the camel. I'm hoping this resolved before the subscription sale ends or my decision will be made for me.
On that note, you guys REALLY should go back and address the descriptions for nearly all the purchasable items. I bought the Caitain BOFF assuming it was for all fed characters, and was upset when I found out it wasn't. Nothing in the description says it was for that character only. It only says that if you want more than one Caitian BOFF you need to buy it again. I inferred that it was like the Borg BOFF in that it was account wide, but different in that it was not unique.
Luckily, it was only 120 c-points. But it's still crappy.
Purchases like "8hr skill buff" clearly say it is for that character only, so consistency is off here.
I also don't get why I'm allowed to by the "new" Borg BOFF even thought I can't use her since I have the other one, which I guess meets the "active" descriptor in the purchase description. I read that and thought it meant actively stationed- meaning, I could have more than 1 but not in use at the same time.
This is not the case. I cannot use the new Borg BOFF on any account since I have the old one. Another waste of C-points.
