exactly, man. Let's just hope a developer can give some insight into this.

Honestly, if the language is vague - it's best to wait for clarification (or so I say).

The accolades are coming out this month (and there's no telling if it might eventually wind up as vet perk or c-store item). Who knows? I don't.

Shikamaru317 - did you have lifetime, pre-order, or other marketing items wind up as obtainable through other means?

If so, it's a promotional thing. Let's wait for clarification.

Till then, let's relax - the way Mugatu would:

I forgot most people on this forum are INSANE.

I suppose i'll just have to let you people run the game into the ground with your ridiculous ideas then.
I wouldn't call it insane. I dislike raids, is that so bad? Making mistakes in raids gets you berated by other players. I personally don't have hours to exclusively devote to STF's. I frequently have other people in my house calling me away from my computer to do things for them. Other players in raids do not like people that go afk. Therefore, STFs aren't even available to me. I for one am a supporter of having STF's made scalable, with options for soloing, and for smaller teams for those that do group them. Then it would be a win-win as soloers could play them, and groupers wouldn't have to spend as much time searching for a team since they could go in with a smaller team.

I can see why you are a solo player and don't enjoy STF's or "raiding".

perhaps you should try some singleplayer Trek games.. they might suit you better.

If you are getting berated by people... then you are playing with the wrong group of people... I screwed up twice in two separate STFs and no one really said anything other than, "let's try that again". It is not hard to find people who are easy going in this game... my suggestion is to join a casual fleet... casual does not mean bad... it just means that they have no set schedule and are easy going... my casual fleet generally has a few people on who want to do an STF when I do...

Edited to remove a statement that could be misconstrued as a flame. Can't take any chances since I got a warning today for having too many lines in my signature.

I'm this close to invoking a carebear stare on y'all.

Let's hold our breath - we don't know what the language of the deal means exactly and if it will appear elsewhere.

I don't know; most of the posters probably don't either.

That said, let's wait for developer to comment.

Isn't this Rehkan's expertise anyways?

If you can, ask him politely through PM to clarify the situation.

Sadly, there is a big difference between the pre-order rewards and this particular reward. The pre-order rewards were mostly tiny little aesthetic rewards that had no major effect on gameplay and only a tiny effect during the lower levels. However, the AGT Galaxy is geared towards end-game where players will be spending the majority of there time. So you can't exactly compare the two.

However, I do plan to wait for a dev response, which likely won't come until tomorrow. I have nothing else to do, and it's not like i would quit over it until it came out if things aren't remedied before then. You have nothing to worry about from me for the time being.
