# 1 Breen Ship misleading?
12-29-2012, 11:32 AM
After my friend got 1000 Q's autographs, he bought the breen ship.
He wanted to sale it. The box info reads "tradeable" but it's wrong!
even when the box is unopened, YOU CAN'T PUT IT ON THE MARKET!

so... was it a lie?

Has been stated since the start that the ship would be bound to the character that earns and then buys it.
Sorry all your ice running doesn't mean the phat exchange ec you were hoping for.
Instead you get an actually , damned cool (pun intended) ship.

So, no , it was not a LIE.
In fact , they couldn't have been more clear unless they sent Bran Flakes to your house to tell you personally.

the funny thing is, the small print says that it can be traded, while the large bold print says it cant be traded.

Dev Blog before Winter Event explained all about rewards. It is written in that devblog that ship will be bound to character upon pick up.

This, even if casual players don't read the devblogs or forums, you are neglecting the fact that the very same infobox you are reading has it listed as bound to character on pickup.

You had to bypass big bright yellow text to get to your otherwise smaller white text that said it was tradeable. I am not sure how much clearer Cryptic could be that it is bound to character other then have the text flashing neon colors.

People, its a "free" ship, it isn't trade-able, it won't ever be. Enjoy the ship and have a nice day.

"This ship is currently packed and can be traded in this state" means nothing?...

Probably something Cryptic thought wasn't worth testing and used some copy, paste code...

I'd feign stupidity about this if they'd do that. He seems like a pretty cool guy.
