The original point of this thread was to ask for C-Points to be giftable to another player. As of 03/02/11, this is now possible! Yay!
Here was my original post:
I wish there was a way to send C-Points to another player as a gift.
I have friends who play STO, and I think it would be nice to send them some shiney colored pixels for the holidays (yes, I start my Christmas shopping early, heh).
Ideally the way I see it work is that our own account page let's us purchase a "CP Gift Code" - same prices as normal CP purchases, so $6.25 gets you a code worth 500CP. Buy the Gift Code and the screen displays one of those long alphanumeric codes (or I suppose the game can e-mail it to you). Then we can send that code to anyone (or even use it for ourselves later if we change our minds). The code is typed into a player's redeem page and >poof< they get the CP.
I think this would be nice for any sort of gift-giving (holidays, birthdays, etc.), but also as rewards for Fleet Promotions, Player Sponsored PvP events, etc.
Any chance of something like this happening in time for Christmas 2010?
As my godfather says to me: never start a sentence with the words "I don't think."
Well I don't. I'm a terrible mess in chess. People have tried to figure out a strategy... Kinda fails when I do all the moves at random. (beat the bf 4 times in a row and friends are starting to complain)
And thats after like 8 years of not playing chess. :p
But my insanity aside... It is a good idea.
I got a friend I would love to buy stuff for. He plays with time cards and I can stand being in a team with him for more than 5 minutes and a $5-$10 here or there is no issue for me when it comes to friends.
