They've only been out for 5 days... not nearly enough time to determine total sales Those things take weeks, at the very least.
Was named Trek17, but still an author.

Been playing STO since Open Beta, and have never regarded anything as worse than 'meh'. I have nothing against the game/devs, nor any particular wish to talk bad about either, or praise most decisions. Still, it's better to be positive than cynical.

Which is why its a general zen sale for all PWE games. But hey, any conspiracy that makes Cryptic look bad in a storm, right?

I know people don't believe us, but I'll reiterate what Flakes already said. The Andorian ships are doing just fine. The sale is a ZEN sale, across all PWE games. The two are not related.

Greetings all,

Does the 15% Zen purchase bonus that occurs frequently throughout the year apply to PW game cards that you buy at stores such as Wal Mart or Gamestop for example?

I am referring to this: http://i.walmartimages.com/i/p/00/79...82_500X500.jpg

I realize that they are not listed on the STO page with accepted payment methods. However, knowing STO for as long as I have, I realize this doesn't necessarily rule out the fact that they might offer the bonus to these PW game cards. It could just be an oversight.

Thank you for your time.

Not for this promotion, unfortunately. The bonus is only available through select payment processors. Details: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=827281

Cheers,

It's understood and thank you for the clarification. Don't let the conspiracy theorists get to you. As I said before, they do have their reasons, but they do not represent the majority of the "people" by far.

You guys don't really need to explain this basic stuff, although it's nice to see that you as devs. take the opinions from players seriosely and follow us on the forums.

I've said it before and I'm gonna' say it again - everyone that has logged in STO and played at least a while this past week would have noticed that nearly every 4th ship is an Andorian escort. Also everyone that has played STO for at least 2 months would know that ZEN is the currency of PWE games and that therefore ZEN sales are global for all PWE games.
It's just some people that forget how to have fun and then try to trash the fun of everyone else. I never could understand that....but hey, that's just me.

I'd bet that there are number of people waiting for their payday to get ahold of one of those.
I for example decided on leveling my Andorian because I loved the Charal and want that char. to be my first to walk in the Andorian ship. I'm 2/3 down the way, but once I hit VA I'll be getting the 3-pack, that has already been decided. I know there are quite a few fanatics like me that think that way.
Because true Starfleet Captains command Exploration Cruisers!
Thank you Cryptic for finally giving me MY SHIP!!!

In this case they take it seriously because it's a blatantly false rumor, that if allowed to persist, could develop bad PR.

Heh. I'm saving up for the pack too.

It is funny that people don't realize that PWE sale is for all game (or maybe they do but just think of STO)

At the end of the month is good since that is when people are usually get paid
