Ec Cap Issue (admin please read)
 
Hi,

So basically long story short i bought 40 lock box keys with zen to transfer and get ec. i forgot however that there was a ec cap and after selling 40 lock boxes worth 1,275,000 each i did not get the remaining ec from the keys and so i am really worried.

if you didn't buy the 1bil ec cap or are not a gold member you won't get your EC

He is right, once you reach the EC limit the EC is gone.

That does not justify for me to simply give up. It really is not fair that happens because they dont even give you a warning that you are about to exceed it or do anything to help you or be aware in the regard. Its almost on the verge of scamming. 30 dollars that goes to pwe but i get nothing out of it.

the purpose of keys is to open lock boxes

if you speculate for EC you take a risk

how else besides transferring zen to ec is it possible to buy a 50 million ec ship when they set the limit to ten and dont even warn you that your are exceeding limit. I get th epoint o flock box keys but why else would they allow it so you could post them on the exchange

concidering real money has been used id not let the matter drop.

anyways yes there should be some sort of warnning that u reached ec cap.

i lost ec once i won a fengi ship and sold it for 80 mil and wondered why i had no ec for it.

buy the zstore ec cap upgrade its a must buy.

So you spent enough Zen to buy 40 keys (so 4,000 Zen), and yet didn't think to spend 500 Zen to take off your cap first?

Fool... money... easily parted etc. I seriously doubt you'll ever see the excess 41 million EC.


Also, not knowing how a system works isn't a gameplay bug.

Reading this thread has reminded me to do something: Buy the flippin' EC cap increase.

To the OP: If you mouse over your EC total, it will tell you what the EC cap is. That you haven't the time or the effort to put into remembering that isn't Cryptic's fault.

It doesn't need to be displayed in 40 point flashing red type every 5 seconds that you're about to exceed your cap if you're actually paying attention.

Also, I agree with the above. Seriously, 5k ZEN for keys yet you can't spring for 500 to increase your EC cap? Priorities, son, I say, priorities....

FYI: It's 5k ZEN for 40 keys (125*40)
