It was always clear! So there was a typo somewhere, some place, some time. In the grand scheme of things it was made clear in EVERY other way including in the in-game chat server as this was constantly a question.

Inevitably, its a free ship, and a GREAT ship at that. Just enjoy the ship!

Right click on it in the store, or right click on it and hit 'Info' in your inventory. The first line in the description says the ship can be traded... theres even two asterisks preceding it to make it look more important.

I'd feign stupidity about this if they'd do that. He seems like a pretty cool guy.

Personally I think its nothing to get this worked up about, I have used the Breen ship and its a joke, I have switched back to my Escort Carrier, it might have been ok if they have given it a unique bridge, but apparently PWE has given up on bridges, the timeships had pathetic ones, the Vestas didn't have one and now the Breen ship doesn't have one, I imagine the 3 yr anniv ship won't either.

It also says in big yellow (or gold?) letters right under the name "Bound to Character on Pickup".

Bottomline, yes they made a typo in having the description read "can be traded" but they made it perfectly clear in every way. Including in game, that the box is bound to your character.

Okay, out of the misunderstand you have had with the "trust(ing) in the tooltips", I will personally make it up to you. I will personally drive the Whaambulance to your house and give you a package of cookies, so you may have your just deserts.

Duder, its a FREE ship, that everyone had more than an opportunity to earn by doing some races! There really wouldn't have been much value in it anyways, a month later we will get a better ship. You got it for free, use it, love it, be its friend.

Most importantly READ THE FORUMS!!!!!

Lets make the assumption that most users are stupid... if you read the tool tip and info, the last thing you read (chronologically) in the info is that the ship is tradable. And Im sorry but "perfectly clear" would mean that this typo wouldnt exist...

Now I dont care either way. Tradable or not, its still a cool ship and I'm close to getting it, so whatever. (I do think that it having been account bound would have been a better idea, but whatever)

Who looks at the 'info' anyway? Most players just look at the tooltip. That's what I do. Plus, if you do look at the info and it conflicts with the tooltip, isn't that a clue that one of those is not correct? It would certain lead me to find out which is correct.

Im fairly certain that many people use the info box. Maybe to compare gear, maybe to learn more about the gear/item or learn about set bonuses. Tool tips only tell so much. (I myself look at the info for most every item I get barring consumables like batteries and hypos.)

Yes, having there be a conflict would certainly lead me to find out what is right, however most users... will just complain that they cant trade their ship.... Yes, its stupid (again, bind to account would have made more sense), but its the way the majority of (casual) users are.
