I wouldn't doubt it. Trying to entice people into buying keys. They have been caught in lies before. I really don't think they care. I'm sure they will say it's a bug, if they even acknowledge it.

The people saying it could be lying. There's no way we can know if it's true or not. Unless someone is recording on Fraps or demo record.

I have been stuck in STFs with players who seem completely unable to count to 3. There is a lot going on in this game and not everyone is so adept as many of us forum posters. 100% human inspection is only 80% effective. People miss things all the time.

Everyone I have contacted about their system messages has gotten a ship. I see no reason to believe otherwise.

In the last 3 days I've watched messages fly by every minute or two about someone "winning" a Galor. Hmm, OK. I play over 12 hours a day. I'm disabled and rarely leave the house, so I have little else to do but watch TV. In those 3 days I've seen ONE Galor flying. Uh did I mention I've seen ONE Galor flying? I'm just saying.

This^^. With all the bugs lately, this is a MUCH more likely explanation. And I highly doubt Cryptic would INTENTIONALLY make blatant lies like this. It's just too easy to be proven false, and the PR consequences would be a total mess.

Cryptic doesn't under stand PR consequences.

Or honesty for that matter.

Captains, there is already a thread on this matter in the bug forums. Please post in there.

If you have had this happen to you or someone you know, please send in a community ticket letting me know the name of the character and @handle. I can promise you that this is not intentional and is a bug if it is really happening. I say "if it is really happening" because yesterday, while I was playing, I was sending "gratz" messages to random winners when I saw their name flash -- not a single one said "huh?" or "what was that for?" They all were issued a Galor from opening a box.

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=
