I was wondering what about those of us who have already purchased all ships (in my case everything) the c-store has to offer, we won't be able to get the type 8 shuttle pet. Is there any way to get the pet if you already have purchased the ships? I would appreciate any dev feedback, thanks.
WishStone, I think the situation could have been handled slightly better than it was. I think it would have been far more beneficial if the news post about this promotion had contained a note to those who already purchased all the fed ships that they would have to wait till the next promotional offer. Something like "To our Loyal Customers who purchased all the fed ships already; we appologize but this offer will not work for you. But don't worry, we will be sure to have another one that you can participate in sometime in the future." at the end of the announcment would have been nice.
I promise that no one sat in their chair and said "Let's see how we can annoy someone today" while stroking a white cat.
And we will look at making goodies available randomly in the future, too. The Shuttle pet is not going to be presented as a "Last possible chance" option this weekend, but I honestly do not know when it will be coming back and in what form.
True..they were just stroking their big handle bar 'stache jk
I dont buy much from the c-store, though that is through lack of money. At one point some of those ships were near 15 quid for me! rawr! no way..i just couldn't justify it even if i admit i did want them. I get that stuff goes down in price. But the people here saying they have brought 8 ships...well **** if i was them i might be unhappy too. it's one thing if the c-store is real cheap. But for me art least, the stuff i want is not cheap. So I can understand them being a bit upset.
Yet this could be easily addressed. Considering how expensive the c-store can be...cant thiose guys that are regulars to it. Or people that are spending "x" amount each month, couldn't there be a rewards system for them? so they can accrue c-store points on each purchase or something?
I was really not THAT upset about not getting the shuttle pet. I had no feeling of betrayal. My problem was the apparent lack of interest in even trying to resolve the issue, and attitude of, "oh well." I will be much more conservative in my purchases from the C-store from now on. I will be waiting for sale weekends.
Immediately after my post yesterday I was able to use the workaround by giving one of my alt toons a fighter. Worked without a hitch.
Glad to see the shuttle is available, and will be again (who says Cryptic won't have the shuttle free with the next ship launch) now that they are free from the bounds of the promotional item contract!
Also, as a side note, hopefully the contract holding the Wrath of Khan uniform runs out, and soon - I want customizable rank and sleeve decorations, and a "Bloodstained" option.
