# 1 Breen Ship misleading?
12-29-2012, 10:32 AM
After my friend got 1000 Q's autographs, he bought the breen ship.
He wanted to sale it. The box info reads "tradeable" but it's wrong!
even when the box is unopened, YOU CAN'T PUT IT ON THE MARKET!

so... was it a lie?

Has been stated since the start that the ship would be bound to the character that earns and then buys it.
Sorry all your ice running doesn't mean the phat exchange ec you were hoping for.
Instead you get an actually , damned cool (pun intended) ship.

So, no , it was not a LIE.
In fact , they couldn't have been more clear unless they sent Bran Flakes to your house to tell you personally.

"This ship is currently packed and can be traded in this state" means nothing?...

Probably something Cryptic thought wasn't worth testing and used some copy, paste code...

It's Cryptic fault. If the ships says "tradeable", it should be "tradeable."

So the mountains of information available via this website, various blogs and podcasts that have clearly stated for weeks that the ship is BOUND TO CHARACTER, mean nothing ?

"There's a TYPO on the box in the game !!!! REVOLT !!!
They must honor the words of the TYPO !!!"

This is a profoundly ridiculous idea.
It's your own fault that you didn't read the VERY easily available information regarding the ship.
Now, you expect them to suddenly make a ship that is EASILY achievable "tradeable"?
No
That has no room for exploiting whatsoever.

*shaking my head in disbelief*

I knew the box its bound and i knew it from the beginning, but the bast majority of the players doenst read the forums. They trust in the game information, as is logic.

Then they should check their email, I got an email from PWE/ Cryptic around the time of the event starting which had this link in it:

http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=777921

Which at the very bottom of the article had the following statement

Quote:
NOTE: The above stats are subject to change. The box that the ship comes in, which cannot be opened until the minimum rank listed above, is bound upon pickup.
There's been masses of information regarding this ship and how it's available, if that information was only available via the forum then I could maybe understand the issue but I'd imagine most people check their email daily and the information was even sent there. If they didn't read it or didn't make it to the end of the article then there's only one person to blame.
