To make a Borg Character, you must first make another character, log in to the game, open the C-Store, click on the "Unlocks" tab and claim the Liberated Borg Race.
yea, doesn't work. Even made a second new character in case there was a problem with the one I created right when the servers came up. 2 character slots at the character screen, nothing in cstore panel. I also lack an "Unlocks" tab, I have "Available" and "Special Unlocks" with a blank tab/filler to the right of Special Unlocks.
My gripe with this is I have 3 mates currently online and leveling up, I don't want to run off with a toon I don't want to play - I want to get on my Borg, spend the time and effort making him how I want him to look then play, until then my mates are off out there leveling without me .
I don't blame them, noone forced me into buying lifetime but I sure did expect an established MMO company to actually make sure that when someone spends that kind of cash on their product they damn well have it working!
To make matters worse in my eye's they have not even said sorry!
This is so true. And while I sit here and roll my thumbs my fleetmates are lvling up, and itīs getting close to midnight here in Sweden. So I prolly miss out on the first day of play, and have all my friends ahead of me. Then I have to do all the lvling by my own which sux more then a pornstar.
I think you're missing the point, it's the principle of it all, I doubt anyone actually paid for the lifetime just for the one character, though it was promised to be apart of the package for headstart.
Question, if they released the liberated Borg say... now? Or say... tomorrow? Would you stop complaining and just play the game?
If so... then where's this "principle" you're referring to? After all, you've been shorted a whole 3 hours! Shouldn't you get some kind of compensation even AFTER they release liberated Borg?
If you're just talking a big game now, and going to be pacified when the feature is actually available, you're kind of like a child throwing a temper tantrum. You complain and moan until you get your way, and then all the reasons for you complaining and moaning suddenly vanish.
I am guessing the borg, extra character slots, etc will appear in the cstore special unlocks section once the devs fix whatever. The devs did advertise how to collect unlocks, but it still does nothing to dull the pain of not having my $239 borg and $0.75 2 extra character slots. I at least I have consolation that my $0.25 lifetime sub is proudly displayed in my account.
Im sure you will get taken care of. Have you ever started day one on a mmorg? Things dont go very smooth. Take a breath Im sure it will be cool.
Days of EIGHT hour queues to get into **** was terrible in comparison with (what is basically a single issue only) the account server mismatch with the game. I think its been a really good start actually, people are progressing already at a good pace, and the server has only briefly gone down once to pause the C-store I think.
