So, do we have a replacement for the 250 emblem reward for the 500 day veteran yet?
Your answer is in the F2P Dev Blog #19
In addition to the above, we are adding something new to the 600 day reward. We removed some free Emblems from the 600 day reward recently because we knew we were removing Emblems from the game economy. We are replacing this part of the award with a free Vice Admiral Starship Token.
So they just mixed up which reward is what, it doesn't change the fact that the replacement for the 250 emblems at 500 days is in fact the Va token at 600 days.
And as Steve said in another post, that isn't changing.
but he also said they would look to maybe add something else, so while its not changing they may well add something to it.
This is true. However, we have a group of players who already received their 250 emblems. So, anything they add to the 600 day as a replacement everyone who already got that 250 emblems will get, in essence getting a double reward.
Now, don't take this as hating on those who already got the reward, I don't begrudge any of you those emblems, not looking to start a flame war about that. :p Whatever fix comes for the 250 emblems being taken away, needs to be fixed at the 500 day level. Not something added to the 600 day. Just my opinion.
