Hey Cryptic, can you make these 25-day grind ships an account wide unlock?
 
As with the winter event we get to spend 25 days grinding an event to pick up single-use ship.

The event is simple enough - can we forgo the existing grind in favor of an account wide unlock for it (and every future ship like this)?

Yes please. I have 5 characters and it's going to be a bit too much work to grind to the Risa corvette ship.

Er, it takes ~5 minutes per character to do. It's not only easier than the WE was, it's quicker as well.

+1, hell +9000

Its over 9000

give us acct wide for these.. I started to hate winter wonderland with only 2 chars.. I am doing risa on my main to colect a ship in a box that I will likely never open......

I don't care for multiple characters, but would like to see it being Account Bound in case I decide to make a different character in the future.

I vote yes!
 
If you think it is rough with 2 to 5 characters, then imagine having 20 max rank characters like myself! It is absolute torture completing the missions for "Special" prizes with the current setup. The easiest way is to make it a Veteran Reward not based on time, but based on number of characters. The fact that the 1,000 day Vet reward was basically given away needs to be blocked from enabling somebody to claim a relief reward like this.

Cryptic doesn't even repsect our time enough to make the event costumes acount unlock, and those are a trivial fashion item (i.e. they don't change game play). I doubt they'll do a ship

I should add I do see why as such an item is a major game piece, one that adds to game play, and otherwise potentially bring in dollars. The other items in the even, I see no reason for.

Still account bound for an item like this seems reasonable, or some middle ground for those who have purched many charactes of the years.

Since they're not making money off each character that does it, this makes sense. I have 8 characters; spending 5 minutes per day, per character, for 25 days...nope.

I have 8 characters. "Grinding" the laughable daily runs for all 8 is nothing.

Cryptic, feel free to leave the non-broken system for getting a free ship alone as there's nothing wrong with it whatsoever, and instead spend your time fixing actual problems.

What's in it for Cryptic if they make it an account unlock?

If they keep it per character then there is more incentive for people to buy keys, get lobi, and convert to pearls. Cryptic will only make something easier for players if there is something in it for them, in this case they would lose out if they made them account unlocks.
