The complaints of the vocal minority.

Not a single person in my fleet has had any complaints with any of Cryptic's promotions.
In fact, some of them even took great issue with the Referr a Friend program in the first place and saw putting the Galaxy X there as being a scam in itself.
Now that the Galaxy X will be otainable on the c-store maybe people will start using the promotion properly.

And i personally and others will continue to referr people to a game that really is fun to play and quite enjoyable once your interest in the game stops revolving around feeling special about pixels.

I had to do promotions, ingame-support, newbie-help and answer endless mails and PNs about the game. I had about 20 players at the same time in my referal account, and only 6 of them finally bought the game and subscribed so I got the ship. It was hell of work to get this done...

I spent hunderts of hours of free time to succeed. 100$ are peanuts compared to this. And you ask me what I lost? I lost nothing. But Cryptic has lost all of their reputation by this huge scamming of their promoters. I will never ever trust them again.

They billed 4000 CP at my account as compensation. They should put their CP to a place where the sun never shines. I don't need their CP... and there's nothing of interest in their C-Store.

They are scammers and liars. Plain and simple.
God take a midol. You working "hundreds of hours" to get the Galaxy X is just a foolish as the people who bought the game 5 times over with 5 more subs. The ship is slightly different and you just needed to have it, and we're supposed to feel sorry for you now that you realize it wasn't worth the trouble. If only you got that news flash before you wasted all that time.

Thaxx, Watched your posts in the other thread. I agree there is little that most of us can use those points for, but the point is Cryptic is trying to make ammends. We expected to have an "exclusive" item that others had to "Work Very Hard" for if they wanted one. Marketing had an exclusive to push their program, and Game Support wanted the same item in the C-Store. When marketing lost the Exclusivity battle, they decided on the 4000 points to try to reconcile a situation that was beyond their control.

Yes, Cryptic did this, but accept that "Cryptic making the best of a bad situation". At least the people who referred got something. Lifers who saw their preorder bonuses got nothing, and I am sure will never get anything.

I'm also I lifer.
I also preordered.
I had also a COLTS.

I payed about $500 for Game, LTS and Retail Boxes to Cryptic, because I thought "exclusive" didn't mean "exclusive" just for a few weeks. They are making the best out of this? Sorry, but I don't see anything good in scamming customers.

But your're all right. It's my fault. I trusted Cryptic, I loved the game, so I supported them with my money and with bringing new players here. Lessen learned. It will never ever happen again.

I'll do what's the smartest thing to do in the next Cryptic game (if I ever play one again): Buy the cheapest standard-retail key you can find at e-bay, buy it, use Gametime Cards from China, wait some weeks and buy your favorite bonuses for a few additional cents at the c-store.

You can get cheap secondhand Lifetime accounts on e-bay too.

(And sorry, but:LOL)

Instead of 5 Boxes you should have bought retail keys from e-bay instead, they have been around for a while for ~14.
