Point Discrepency
 
Hmm...I have a slight problem.

For STO it says that I have 199 C-points. For Champions, it shows that i have 279, since I earned 80 points when I couldn't afford to play STO before F2P. Do I get those 80 points for STO now?

No. Points dont carry over from one game to the other.

That stinks. I was hoping that they would count for STO, since they are from the same company.

Correction, points obtained from the dilithium exchange or from the stipend do not carry over to CO. Points purchased directly from Cryptic for cash are indeed usable in both games.

There are 3 different types of C-Points these days:

STO C-Points - (Points ONLY good for STO gear - and these are earned via the 400 CP STO Gold Stipend; or purchased from the STO dilithium exchange.)

CO C-Points - (Points ONLY good for CO gear - and these are earned via the CO 400 CP Gold Stipend.)

General C-Points - (These are purchased with REAL money - and once purchased can be used for EITHER CO or STO gear.)

HOWEVER - remember that any General C-Points will actually show up in your C-Point total for BOTH games (if your account works for both CO and STO) until used - meaning if you had 100 STO points and 100 CO points; and 80 'General' C-Points - your C-Point totals in the C-Store of each repective game would both show '180'.

As you use that 80 'general C-Point total though the combined total will go down for BOTH games as you don't actually have 180 CP for both - you have 100 STO/CO only points and 80 that cabn beused for either game.

Lastly, ANY 'General' C-Points that you put on the STO exchange IMMEDIATELY become STO only C-Points as soon as you put them into the Exchange - EVEN IF they don't ultimately sell. When you withdraw them back out of the Exchange they are now STO only C-Points.
