I made a forum-only PWE account and still play with my Cryptic acc. Will they eventually shut the "Cryptic log-in" in the game launcher down?

Ditto. In fact i had to come all the way down to using my real name to get an account. Last time I did that was back in AOL days. And I have a very long list of possible account names in the back of my head. (I'm a former hacker who used to "teach" hacking and wrote tutorials way back when)

Everything that I came up with was either already taken or didn't get back their filters.

According to the 'Linking' FAQ...
Quote:
Account linking will soon be non-optional. If you have a Cryptic account and link now, you can claim a special item in Star Trek Online. Also, the sooner you link, the better chance you have of getting your preferred account name and display name.

Oh, the linking FAQ. "Everything is better now, everything is easier, everything is only for your own good, citizen... err... captain..." XD

What's that "special item" anyway?

I've had a few conversations with foreign outsourced support lines that were shockingly similar to that actually.

I believe there's 5000 Dilithium as well as one of those boxes that generate a random level-appropriate weapon. I remember I got a Rare quantum torpedo launcher as a result, but I don't remember if there was anything else.

For the life of me I don't understand why some people have so many problems. It took me like 45 seconds to merge my accounts, and - not that it matters - I have the same forum name.
