The Compensation award for five referrals was done due to the premature announcement and pending release of the galaxy-X. It was done so that Marketing could save face. While similar in appearance, it's actually a different issue. The decision came from Marketing.

Here is my solution to this, writing my post here also so that all of you can read it again.

I have a suggestion:

They could reward everyone that have bought multiple copies of the game.
They could decide that one game is worth 1000 CP in extra points, then they could give everyone that have more then one game connected to the account that value based on the amount of games in cryptic points.

Gift = Game Value * Amount of game connected to account.

For example if you have three game, they give you a total of 2000 CP for the other two games you have
bought and connected to your account.

So if you have bought 5 extra copies of the game or if you have that galaxy-X Star Ship you get 5000 CP and that is approximately what they are going to give out for compensation for the referral program.

Then everyone is happy and the gift is based on the amount of games you have bought.

By Cryptics own words they only and initially intended to compensate people who bought multiple copies for a referral bonus for themselves. If you don't think there should be compensation then these people would need to have theirs taken away. Naturally, that wont happen, so the best thing to do from what I can see is to compensate everyone who did the same thing that the grounds for this compensation originated in else they get special treatment above everyone else who did the same thing.

The argument is that people who bought multiple copies for themselves to get the ship supported Cryptic by buying those multiple copies. Others did the same at launch so why should they get a bonus for doing it and not the other people who did the same exact thing.

Then the people who bought multiple boxes for themselves for the referral system also got their compensation by way of multiple accounts, game time, and referral items. Which means they shouldn't have the $50 CP compensation, but they do. That's a fact, it can't be changed. What can be done is making it right by others who have done the same thing that made them want to give away compensation and not just them exclusively.

Yes, this is exactly the problem. It should be both or none, but it isn't. This is, in my opinion, the main reason why most people are upset.

That would be fine and well but that isn't the case. Stated directly in the original post that started this thing;

I've also talked to some of the community team myself in the IRC channel and they too said the same thing. It was meant only for those who bought multiple copies for themselves and they assured me they were confident they had a method to determine who had done that and who hadn't with no error.

As mentioned above, it's only fair.
I agree, bought an extra copy of the game (CE) for the TNG/DS9 uniforms one week before they announced those uniforms were going onto the C-store. And when the game launched I bought the Deluxe edition and BestBuy edition for the Targ. The original copy was fine but basically I spent 100 bucks on nothing.

Not that I'd be surprised or anything, but I haven't seen any STOLTS stuff in the cstore. That is to say neither Liberated Borg race, Captain's Table, nor Career Officer are on CStore. If you're going to point at the borg bridge officer, that's a preorder bonus, not the Liberated Borg race.

I think 500 CP per box would be more likely, since that is the amount some retailers were giving away as their Pre-Order Exclusive.

1000CP x 5 boxes would actually be MORE than what the Recruiters were compensated; but if all has to be fair then 800CP x 5 = $50 in points, so 800CP per box key would also be reasonable.

yes it would be more you know how much those boxes cost mine average and the dde were 50 and up I think a grand a box is fair its not like cpoints cost cryptic anything to make now that the system is up and running they can make an unlimited number so it's not like they would have to make more items
