You are talking about a one of a kind game, with a big image to draw people in.

In Europe there is no advertisements anywhere in the runup to its release. When pre-orders were ready there should have been the big cardboard cutouts in the various Game shops, and they could have even made a good trailer to place on channels such as FX where the show is on, and/or other sci-fi channels across europe that will have the sort of people interested in this game watching.

Is there actually any advertisement in the US? be it stores or tv

I enjoy this game, just wish Cryptic made a bigger push. The reason WoW gets players is that it used a big budget to advertise it everywhere (Coupled with being a known series, and a trusted company)
Sure Cryptic havent got the big budget, but Atari should have done something about advertising worldwide imo.
Not really. Wait do you count the coming soon list for gamestop as advertising? (BTW its not cryptic handing the euro market)

One code for the shuttle; all four cups gets you the maximum amount of free trial time, but you only need one for the shuttle.

I am amazed at how incredibly inconsiderate the managers or whoever decides these actions are towards their customers!

This shuttlecraft was supposed to be a pre-order exclusive item!
Now I find that they changed this to just buy a drink in some obscure restaurant!
What next? Buy a pizza at Domino's and get a free Borg Bridge officer?

Craziness, really! People have payed for this stuff. Also, you limit the special offers according to where on the planet you live, which I think is unfair for a game that brings people from all over to 1 place, where they should be equal.

Also all these new and unannounced promotions make me lose faith in the truth of what was said about all those 'exclusives'.

As i know almost all restaurants [i am assuming this is a restaurant] in 100 miles of where i live and i have never heard of them i am going to assume that i will not be able to get this item on top of which no way i could find a way to get the item

can this be done with a national or better yet international company while i hate MacDonald they are at lest world wide so all could benefit so what i am asking is can this be done with something that give equal access to all not just one region? or perhaps make a way to earn it in game via a quest that is longer then normal. that way those who even know what they are can benefit and the rest of us still have a chance at earning it

Not a good sign when your customers have to research who your advertising partner is.

Del Who Taco? Never heard of them. The only one in FL is in Orlando, a 5 hour drive if I speed. Couldn't you guys have gotten Taco Bell, there is one on every corner. Geesh, and I'm one of the lucky ones.

Del Taco, who the hell are they? Could you have picked a more remote fast food company to do a promotion with? Like maybe Uncle Bob's deep fried oyster pancake shop?

Now that's some good eatin'!

HEY! Someone had to complain didnt they? Once again I'll main tank the flamers, someone hop in a escort and swing around for a aft shield attack.

I can not see them really getting a great deal of business from it. That an Offering a promotional deal for an extremely limited portion of the planets population well that might work out better if your target population all lives in that same area. As it stands something like what 90%+ of the planet seems to have got missed on this one.
