Vice Admiral
 
Hello all,

Came back to the game with Romulan Expansion and really enjoy it. This time I invited some friends to the game which gave it a try for the first time and like it, they recently levelled to Vice admiral on their Fed character.

Now the question is, what has changed at this point? Do they get a 5th Ship once levelled? Is there something they missing? Because they do not seem to have access to any 5th ship at the shipyard.

I remember my first char had a Token for the 5th ship, and my new Romulan Char got one too.

Has anything changed on the Fed Side?

Or is there a quest they have to do? From what they say they spoke to admiral Quin got some respec token, one uniform token and experience.

Thanks,

Thanks,

you get the free tier 5 ship at level 5 just like with romulans and KDF alongside the uniform token

Thanks mate,

Is it a Free Ship Token, or a Ship straight out?

There is no mention of a Free ship in the log once the Promotion to vice admiral is resolved.

And in Ship yard, my friend tells me, all ships cost Zen or fleet etc..

It is weird...

I'll have them re-check ship by ship in the shipyard.

suraknar 07-18-2013 08:22 PM

Nope, nothing.

Will have them open a Ticket. Seems there is a bug.

Thanks for confirmations.

Cheers!

If you press on the progression bar it will show a window saying what you get at each designated level and rank. For vice admiral, I think it only says you get permission. In the past you did get a token.

They didn't do the risa pearls did they? Could've got an awesome escort tier 5.5+ easy for 5 mins a day.

It is free to play now, end game ships probably and understandably are bought. But if they are up to it, they can grind out the dil and convert that to zen for a c store ship/fleet modules

Everyone that got to Vice Admiral in the past used to get a Vice Admiral token for a free Tier 5.5 ship. However, that was made into a veteran reward months ago. Maybe even before F2P.

No ticket is needed. You only get a free ship at levels 10, 20, 30, and 40. Vice admiral is level 50, so they get permission to buy that tier but not a ship itself.

mewmaster101 07-19-2013 05:43 AM

sorry for the confusion, you get the free ship for level 40, which are still endgame ships (which is what i thought you meant), Yeah, no Tier 5.5 ships except without zen of fleet, though the event ships are tier 5.5 as well and are great choices.

y last free ship is at Rear Admiral Lvl40. Though there is a veteran Reward, hitting 600 days you get a VA ship Token, which can used to buy the Tactical Escort Retrofit, Exploration Cruiser Retrofit or Long Range Science Vessel retrofit.

suraknar 07-19-2013 08:12 PM

Ahh..

I see, ok thank you all that clarifies it.

So F2P players are forced to buy a VA ship now. Thanks :)

I have lifetime (more than 1000 days since I got it when the game first launched), that is probably why I got a VA ship when my Romulan char reached VA.

As for 600 day, that does not count for F2P players right?

They have to have some type of sub or buy lifetime to start the counter ya?
