A LONG time ago, I bought the "Long Range Science Vessel Retrofit" due to its ablative hull armor and now that I wanted to "re-claim" it, it shows that I have to re-buy it. I want to know how this happened - I STILL HAVE the ablative hull armor "module" that came with the ship in my bank if you dont belive that I actually bought the ship. (feel free to check your logs)
I also bought the Tactical Escort Retrofit due to the cloak ability (before the sao paolo came) for my tactical character.
Is this another "sale ploy" to make me spend money on something if bought long ago?
There were 4 ways to acquire intrepid-r, galaxy-r and the defiant-r.
The va ship token for hitting level 51. this va ship token was removed and added to the vet reward system after they removed emblems from the 500 day vet reward.
The Second way to receive this ship token was with the 600 day vet reward. When introduced this ship token was only given to captains who had not received it upon hitting level 50.
The third was was by spending emblems to get this ship. (Emblems discontinued)
The forth was through the c-store.
Since the only option to get an account wide ship was through the c-store, only option 4 could reclaim a ship. Token/emblem ships were per character and never qualified to be reclaimed. In the same fashion as a lock box ship once gone you cannot reclaim and if an error occurs with a va ship token ship you would need to file a ticket to get it repaired.
Emblem/ship token ships also do not qualify for module discount on the fleet version. you can still use that armor on the fleet ship if you choose to acquire it.
DONT you think I know all this? Why do you think I made a topic of it anyway? OFCOURSE I BOUGHT THOSE SHIPS OF THE C-STORE WHEN IT WAS STILL CALLED THE C-STORE !
You are also a lifer and have been here long enough to have claimed the ship with your va ship token or with your 600 day vet reward. The ship token ships are not c-store ships and are not reclaimable.
Most never bought it from the c-store because they got it for free. since you claim to have bought the c-store version does this mean you still have your va ship token?
I know I baught my defiant-r. I never baught my galaxy-r or my intrepid-r.
So you are saying on any character I used the token to buy it, that character cannot reclaim it despite the fact that I have purchased it from the C-Store? That sound like a major bug the programmers need to fix immediately.
No, I'm saying if you purchased your ship in the c-store it will not use your token and you can claim that ship when ever you want. If you did not buy the ship but used a token to get it then you cannot reclaim it. Token ships do not count as c-store purchases.
