First, it's actually 500 days that ought to give the token, since it's a replacement for an item we removed from that. I'm working on getting the descriptions updated on our website.

Second, we've added that issue to our database; thanks for reporting it.

... So this is a reversal of what D'Angelo said? that the VA token would be given at 600 days? 500 days is... well, obviously there'll still be grumbling about it, but that's at least 100 days better. =) Thanks, Zero!

I just hope this doesn't get re-reversed.

But hasn't D'Angelo said here it was at 600 days? But if this was back at 500 days, than, better yet.

AHAHAHahahahahahaha... Sorry, this makes me REALLY laugh. No, really, I find it quite amusing. Zero, please consult with sdangelo and Stormshade, because there were some conflicting posts (between blogs, forums, etc.) that flipped-flopped between 500 and 600.

For what it's worth, I agree with you that it should be 500 since it's been "sold" as the 250 Emblem replacement that was removed from 500. But the last offical announcement I remember reading, was that it was actually going in place of the 600D. Personally, I don't care, as I've passed 600 and should get it either way, assuming it's not straight-up bugged (my next toon is BG3, so I'll see soon enough, I guess).

Note: I just checked your Vet Rewards page and it is listing the VA Token at 500 Days. So that's nice.

After the Gecko T3 ship disaster I m kind of hesitant to give much weight on one more post saying 500 or 600 days. Still, if the VA token is really supposed to replace the 250 Emblems, will that also be Cryptics final vote on including the ~60k dilitihium that some 500 day vets lost, when their eligibility for the special BO reward for the dilihium economy transfer took place?

Some 500 day vets have basically been shafted twice. once we have no use for the VA token, while we could have used the emblems. and the second time when some characters just fell short of getting the BO because they lacked just below 60k dilithium.

Let's just make it 550 days and be done with it.

Haha! Apparently I missed some memos here at work. Obviously D"Angelo is correct and it's 600 days. Believe me, I /facepalmed over this one. -_-

Fark has given me the brain cell plushie that we have around here, since obviously I could use another.

wish i thought this would be funny.

So
1) diliithium conversion special BO: Is it possible to calculate the 500 day vets (those who reached 500d before Dec/01/2011) but didn;t get the 250 emblems, with an additional ~60k dilithium to see if they are eligible for the BO reward.

2) what are you going to do to compensate the lost 250 emblems award for the 500 days award??

3) maybe d'angelo is in the know, and can share his wisdom with the crew. Intra-office communication seems to have some problems lately

Well, for what it's worth, Zero, the news is disappointing, but I'm glad you came on and told us as soon as you could. Thank you for that. =)

i think the answer is simple: they won't

why? because a reward of dilithilum equalivent to 250 emblems would give a lot of people a lot of dilithilum, seriously upheaving the economy, reducing the actual amount of real money people spend for awhile, etc etc... the only downside? a lot of upset people, which they're dealing with already.

i could be wrong (hope i am), but that's how i see it currently
