Del Taco/STO Petition
 
Gamers,

This post is primarily a petition in regards to the Del Taco Shuttle, I hope you join me in support with this petition, because the baby that cries first gets the nipple.

Some might say that this is a silly post, because the Del Taco Shuttle is just "Fluff" stuff, and to that, I agree, but where I differ is principle. Only like 8 states have a Del Taco, mostly West Coast, that's like 20% of the games current clients. So, sounds to me like the targeted audience and targeted future audience will be West Coast US. My honest thoughts on this really are that Cryptic should either offer the Del Taco shuttle to those that do not have the option to go to a Del Taco, they could do it as a micro transfer equivalent of $0.99 or other currency from out of US with equivalent value. Other options is to put it up on the C-Store at launch where folks can use Cryptic Points to purchase if they so desire. Another option is to offer this at other franchises or an equivalent promotion for East Coast, US, UK, Canada, Europe and Australia. I am sure there are other folks from other countries as well. Probably the best option is C-Store at launch Feb 2, this would at least somewhat even the playing field.

If you agree, a simple /sign will do, if you don't agree, a simple /nothanks

As this to me is a petition, I will not respond, and after submitting I have moved on, but let your voices be heard, because whatever the outcome, we choose to do something about it, rather then sit back idlely whining about it.

Yup, welcome to Atari/Cryptic marketing, the worst I've seen for any US MMO developer. Seriously, the worst.

But it's not as big as a deal for me as it is for you since my friends got me a code (you're allowed to give them away for free). Just ask someone who lives on the west coast USA to get one for you. :) I agree though, marketing is poor here.

I got mine easy enough from someone buying codes for people online. Took all of like 3 minutes after I first heard about the shuttle to get it done.

Just watch the forums people like me give em away. I only needed 1 for myself and stop by on ocasion when im in the area just to give the code away for free on the forums. (I do so as like you said very few places have dell taco) Anyways watch the forums.

I'm from Europe and have a shuttle. And no, I didn't fly over to the US to get one.

You would think they would pick a chain that can be found in EVERY state instead of a select few. Going with 7-11 would have been a better choice IMHO.

Not having a Del Taco in your area is a blessing! The food is barely better than army rations.
And honestly its a lame pet at best. It just follows you around and it takes up a slot on your ship. Most certainly there are better items to use in place of that thing! You are really not missing much.

Having said that, if you want to at least see one, I'll tow mine behind me for you to drool on :D

I actually suspect it was Del Taco that approached Cryptic. I think as an exlusive offer its pretty good and leads to lots of nice payments for ebay. Its not cryptics fault that there are not del tacos everywhere.

However as a UK reisdent who has his type-8 shuttle thanks to some pals in USA, I cant really offer an argument either way.

However, I personally think that after winning the battle (assuming you do) getting the petitions, flooding the forums, getting support and finally getting your shuttle you will go "oh... is that it.... " assuming of course you can actually see the tiny little fekker
