# 1 A not so good Arc feature
03-01-2014, 07:21 AM
We have a Zen promo now and I bought some Zen indeed. Before Arc I bought it on the PWE webpage. There were two stages, first you purchased the Zen and then you distributed to a game. You could do it right after the purchase, or you could do it at a later time. Right now I still have Zen waiting to be allocated to a game. I play STO and Neverwinter Online.

With Arc this has changed as it seems. When you purchase Zen you have to allocate it immediately to a game. I don't see that as an advantage and I ask PWE to rethink this feature and bring back the old system.

To clarify. Right now I do not play Neverwinter, but I like the game and if they have a nice offer next week or next month I'd like to have the Zen. regarding STO, which I do like to play right now, I have no interest in buying anything, but I might do it if a nice offer occurs.

Arc is only for windows if I am right, so I will probably go to my mac and get some Zen which I can safe for the right time and game.


Well, I bought some more Zen for my second account and somehow I got on the old PWE webside, where I could just buy the Zen and didn't have to allocate it to a game right away.

Suggestion for PWE. Keep it that way and streamline the ARC UI, so we can just buy Zen and can store on a general account to distribute it later to a game as we like.

I believe they are swapping to the new system to stop people saving Zen like this.
Time is a funny thing; There is always too much of it. Except when you need it the most, then there is never enough.

You can still buy it on the PWE website and leave it unallocated.

But yes, I agree, if they were to force you to allocate it, it would be a bad feature.
