I'm a lifetime subscriber and I wanted to show a friend STO via the tribble server, however, I noticed that none of the purchases I made on the Holodeck were working on Tribble. Why is that? I'm still using the same account.
Also - will F2P always stay on a different server or will holodeck and Tribble merge at some point? And will I keep my characters (even if I'm at my max. character limit on holodeck)?
because they want players to have to actually experience the game from a new f2p player. So none of your holdeck purchases will be unlocked on the test server. There will however be some free TEST PONTS which buy cstore stuff on the TEST SERVER. Also if you buy more Cstore points for the holodec server your supposed to get some TEST POINTS on the test server as well.
i Don't think there will be any merging of the servers.....its only for testing purposes.....i wouldn't mind being able to port at least the CHARACTER/BOFFS though....but not items seeing as how we'd get some for free with the free test points. But i wouldn't mind retaining the character and boffs for the time i'm putting in. But i doubt it very much.
As a subscriber/lifer you shouldn't see any change in your account as far as boff slots/ship slots/character slots. What you have now is what you will have when f2p goes live.
