Am I the only one to see, the reduction in price and mandated purchase of 20 at a time Dominion Lockboxes has nothing to do with dilithium, this is effectively free (save for time it takes to earn and refine it)
It is everything to do with master keys, which all, ultimately cost zen and thus $$$
Enough. I used tokens to buy them I am told. Okay, I guess then I just wasted them. I still made the mistake. A shame it is still possible to do so. I guess I should be happy that I can get them from the store...For only 4000 zen.
But...If they are worth that amount, then that's the value of what I deleted...So I DID lose that implied amount, because to replace them due to my mistake, I would have to lay out that total. And since it is POSSIBLE to make the mistake, by my error in believing that all stores in cstore are reclaimable, and since I HAD said ship I figured I had bought it (with having most every ship I DO tend to forget which was acquired how,) and I deleted it. Them, there were two.
So just because you see a ship in store and you have it already, doesn't mean you can delete it. Good to know. It would be nice if there was an icon that stated such, that it isn't reclaimable.
If you check the left side column (under the Ships headings) when in-game at the C-Store, it will tell you which ships you have purchased that are and are not reclaimable. It says 'Available' in the case of those that are.
(EDIT: You have to slide your mouse cursor over it to see this.)

It's not their job to protect customers from their own stupidity. Sad that people seem to be so entitled now that they think they deserve something that costs money because they messed up something they got for free. But I guess that's what's become of most "customers" these days.
LOL you want to take a jab at me...Go right ahead. I admit when I make a mistake or two, and try to learn from it and pass along to others. On occasion, I might be able to help prevent others form making the same mistake.
I see that no one has disputed the fact that if there were a larger amount of slots available, that this would probably not be an issue because you wouldn't NEED to delete ships.
If you want to say I feel that I am entitled to it, you'd be wrong. I think that there is an understanding between a player and the company that is a basic agreement. Sort of like cursing on forums...If you go over a line, you are penalized.
Do you think having limits on ship slots is a limitation?
Having a limit causes one to need to delete ships to add new ones.
One could make a mistake and delete the wrong ship.
Having no limit would alleviate the accidental deletion in THIS case.
It doesn't absolve the fact that I deleted two ships. I never disputed that.
They HAPPEN to be token ships.
When viewing them through store, they look no different than zen ones.
It is easy to forget HOW you got them, when you bought SO many over 3 years.
I submit that an icon in the store showing which you bought and how would help. MUST they? Nope. Would it help? Probably. Will people still delete them by accident thinking they are reclaimable? Maybe...But the fact remains that the only reason to delete them is to make room for others...
Which would not be NECESSARY if there was a higher total of slots. And doing so would ACCOMODATE those of us who have SPENT the money on the OTHER ships.
