Free torpedo launcher?
 
There's a banner on the splash page that is advertising "FREE TORPEDO LAUNCHER WHEN YOU LOG IN!" Is this only for people creating new accounts, or can anyone get this? If so, how do you claim it?

New players who register will have a code emailed to them, along with redemption instructions -- redeeming this code will grant the player an account-wide unlock for a [Quantum Torpedo Launcher Mk II [Acc] [Dmg]]. It can be claimed via the in-game C-Store, under the 'Items' tab. It's also bound and worth no Energy Credits upon deletion, but it's pretty nifty for new players in their starting levels.

Not worth it IMO for anyone that has played the game for more than 10 hours. Guess it would be good for people just starting the game. It seems like it is for players that have just started playing this game so anyone that has played for over a month is ineligible for it.

I just created an account and will be a first time player once my game finished patching! I received a registration bonus giving me a promo code to claim my Mark II Quantum Torpedo Launcher.

Tactically speaking, at that tier you are better off sticking with regular photons. Even with the free starter ship your turn rate is pretty excellent to take advantage of the photon's higher rate of fire and DPS.

Thanks starkaos! I missed that post by BranFlakes. That explains why I couldn't get anything, not a new player.

Oh well, guess I'm not really missing anything. I wasn't expecting something great, but hey -- free is free.

Another false advertisement, that alienates the current players and payers of this game.
Shakes head in disappointment, it sure look to me that anyone should be able to claim the launcher upon logging as it states so clear as day.

It should have said "Free Torpedo Launcher For Registering". That would have avoided the confusion.
