It's random. What you experienced is called a coincidence.

# 15 Stupid Zen Points!
10-13-2012, 05:28 PM
I have been trying to purchase these stupid zen points for three days now and it keeps telling me i need a level 10 character, I have 6 level 50! what gives?!!!! I just want the damned armitage class I dont understand why this so difficult!!!
Why on earth do we have to jump through 1000 logins and waiting for level 10 characters just to buy a flippin ship or anything else for that matter!
What was the purpose of getting rid of the simple cstore purchases?!
And after having played this game from nearly the beginning, taking a break and coming back to this nonsense OF COURSE I'M IRRITATED!
Not to mention I cannot seem to get any answers to anything
I'd apprecieate some clarification

[10:54] [REDALERT] <Dev> Oaks@dstahl: Ent J is not going to happen according to CBS

I'd like to forward a suggestion on conversation over the Red Alert channel.

I notice that people tend to make brief announcement over this channel, telling others about Borg encounter. Example would be, RA in BU#1 confirmed, etc etc.

However, in the spirit of Star Trek and to bring the game closer to the Star Trek world, I think it'd be nicer if we can incorporate the roleplay part in this Red Alert channel. It might seems silly - indeed, I saw someone being ridiculed for doing so - but, if we play STO out of our interest in Star Trek world, it'd feels "that's the way to do it". I'd give some examples on the kind of conversation I talked about as follow:

1. In announcing for Borg Encounter. State your ship name and followed by the announcement. For instance: This is U.S.S. Paramount requesting for an immediate assistance at Beta Ursae #1 (for confirmed encounter). Or, This is U.S.S. Paramount reporting Borg activities in Beta Ursae #1 (for unconfirmed encounter).

2. In reply to an announcement. State your ship name and followed by your action. For instance: This is U.S.S. Paramount acknowledging your request for assistance at Beta Ursae #1. Or, This is U.S.S. Paramount is answering for your immediate assistance.

3. In the case of Borg encounter is over or bugged game play. An exmple would be like: This is U.S.S. Paramaount reporting no more Borg activities in Beta Ursae #1.

Those are only few examples that I'd propose here. Of course, the wording may vary, but to me it'd make the chat channel nicer.

Any thoughts on this would be welcomed. Cheers

I certainly wouldn't be inclined to penalize anybody for their announcements in REDALERT being in character. As long as it's on topic (which is any events, folks, not just sector Red Alerts), it's welcome. A little casual RP never hurt anybody.

Just keep it on topic and we'll be good.

It's true, not a problem at all but there are a number of player's who prefer to keep it simple in REDALERT and you just can't please everyone in a channel this big. I have known some player's to RP in REDALERT but for those player's I created a channel called "Distress Signal" (click the link) a while back that is specifically for roleplayers and only used by roleplayers so there's no break in immersion.

I created that channel for exactly what mariothebros is asking for, it's open to anyone who's interested so if you have friends interested in RP, tell them about it.
