I had fully planned on buying several ships during this sale and when I log in, lo and behold I can't buy them at all because they are restricted. I totally get needing the right rank to USE them however I could care less about that. I just want to HAVE them to use in the future.

You guys really need a way I can just buy them for use in the future, I feel a bit disappointed the benefactors of this sale are mostly higher level characters and newer players who might want the ships in the future can't purchase them to use later.

Put in a dialog that tells people they won't be able to use them until X rank for example before the purchase is made if you are concerned about people mistakenly buying items they can't use yet, many of us are happy to prepurchase items for use in the future.

Agreed! You should be able to buy the item at any rank (or faction), even if the item isn't used yet.

Aye, I certainly agree, it would be great to be able to buy higher-tier ships before we can actually use them in-game. I've no problem at all with the idea that I'll have to rank-up before I can actually fly it.

At the same time, since these are account-wide unlocks, it would be nice if I could buy a ship that my character has already obtained in-game, so as to unlock it for the rest of my characters in the future. Currently, if I've obtained the ship in-game, I can't purchase it in the C-Store. (I suppose I could dismiss it and then buy it and redo all the customization and BO hotbars from the ground up? But what if I find I still can't buy it from the store? Then I'd just be out a ship. Should work, I expect, but I'd like to make sure before trying it.)

/signed so hard. My wife and I were LIVID that we couldn't prepurchase the D'kyr for her for when she got to RALH.

Well, Devs, what have you to say? Is this WAI? And if so, what knucklehead chose this design? Did it not occur to you guys that some people might shell out for ships ahead of time?

I would love you forever Cryptic if you were to allow us to prepurchase these ships this weekend, and of course afterwards too. Seriously I was planning on buying all of the Fed Escorts/Cruisers as well as the Klingon ships and maybe the Gorn one for when new Klingon tutorial is released and I make my Klingon.

I'm in the same situation. My highest level is captain 4, and I don't really want to sit here and grind all weekend just to be able to buy a couple of c-store ships. I even have a lifetime membership and eventually I will have a VA character, so this would have been a great deal. Guess my money doesn't count as much as someone with an endgame level character.
