WTFH Is this CRAP.

Ive spent hundreds of Great British Pounds on this game and now I have to wait what? 2 hours... 3 hours for some poor sob at HQ to approve my purchase of Zen.

Ridiculous, I proclaim a FATWA on the severely incompetent staff at PWE.

Anyone know how long I will have to wait before I get what I PAID for...

I started to use steam for this myself, started to download my game via steam then stopped it after it created the folders in the steam diretory and copied my sto files across to there then did an integrity check to verify all files.

Works like a charm, launch STO via steam if I ever decide to buy more cp and when not doing that I can use my normal install as I like to keep Steam in offline mode. Takes up more drive space but simple to use and beats going through that Zen stuff.

Does buying C-Points via the Steam Wallet also give the bulk discount you can get with Zen?

I believe that only happens the first time you buy Zen. After that, the transaction should just go straight through.

I can't confirm this, since I have only bought Zen once since linking my account, back when they had a sale on Zen/C-Points.

buying zen in bulk straight from pwe using most methods (paypal for example) always gives you bonus zen on purchases of 5000 and up. even better when they have a sale on and sometimes you can get an extra 20% for your money. go steam if you like its good that people have options.

Yeah I'm not impressed. Waiting a day for what I paid to be available to me, when two days ago I could get c-points instantly? That's not efficient or 'streamlined' as they might say.

Obstacle to me being able to buy things = I will buy less things. That's a fact, PWE/Cryptic.

This is a one time thing. Once you've gone through the verification process your purchases from then on should be instant. :smile:

You know, it's REALLY irrelevant that it's a one time thing. Those of us that are complaining are not first time customers. I'll go out on a limb here and guess that a lot of people trying to buy zen are using the same methods (read: CCs) they used to buy Cpoints from the source when it was still an option. It's good enough for Cryptic, but not good enough for their overlords? For those of us spending the money, first time is no different and no less infuriating (and RIGHTLY so) then the eleventy billionth time. Particularly when there is no information provided prior to pressing the submit button that this delay would occur and why. Trying to downplay people's disappointment is getting tiresome and insulting. I for one don't CARE what the excuse is. You TOOK my money. I want my stuff. It's as simple as that. For the record, as of this posting, it is now FOUR HOURS after I submitted my order. I have 0 (zero) to show for it and no explanation anywhere as to why. Last I checked, that was considered fraud and at the very least I am entitled to a chargeback. You can thank Bing for pointing me to this thread.
