I notice allot of people giving the devs flack about the time of the maintenance. most likely thees kind people went into work bleary eyed before 5: 30 am pacific time. and I am really sympathetic to those of us in the UK and Europe, but its the middle of the day some time on the earth and you guys drew the short straw.
at the end of the day, they are making this game better and giving us an ambassador class star ship (in fact their giving us 2) so stop your QQing because the server will be up soon and all this will be forgotten about. that is until the next time the server goes down for maintenance
so the box for the ship and the box for the retrofit are two separate ships?
What is with all the hate.
1) It's a free ship... you don't have to buy it... at all.
2) It's actually not a bad 'fleet support' ship for folks who play totally free and haven't saved up enough to get fleet modules yet or enough to outright buy a Tier 5 ship off the exchange for 60+ million EC.
3) It's an iconic ship. I got one just to have it even though I will continue to fly my Chel Gret. I did, however, get one for my engineer captain and intend to use it when he hits CDR.
Nothing really wrong with the ship. Remember they are very likely to release a C-Store variant or a Fleet variant of it in a few weeks/months like they did with the Odyssey.
Who's post are you referring too ?
It it was mine mentioning the new ship, I think you missunderstood.
