LOL Cryptic, that's funny.

Trying to bribe us into downloading this spyware/malware/bloatware, memory hog Arc with a few useless pretty pixels. AND people falling for it by the dozen.

My answer is no. Everyone has their price and mine is 1200 Lobi or a Timeship.

'til then, No ARC.

Or until it become mandatory, you'll need to use it anyway and have none of those perks^^

Speaking as someone who, generally speaking, could not be fairly called a Cryptic apologist........



.....I actually have no issue with ARC.

I'm running it now and have done for a few weeks.

Sure, its somewhat unnecessary, but it doesn't have anything like the doomsday effect on my machines performance that some seem to think it would.

I get a very slightly slower start to the game, textures seems to take a second or two longer to load. A second or maybe two.

But, other than that, everything runs as it always did.

However, i do hope selfishly that more people keep squawking about it.

So far, I'm a nice off duty costume, a decent shuttle and 20 lobi up.

Keep up the complaints and i might get a something else nice

Totally agree. It was on my comp for less than 5 minutes before I figured it out.

===UPDATE (1/28)===

Hi Captains, in order to claim this uniform on each of your characters, please sign into Arc and log into one character, and then while still in Arc, switch to your other characters so they too may unlock the uniform. This is a change in claiming instructions from what was posted yesterday and will ensure all characters on your account gain access to the uniform. We'll also be updating the blog with this info. Enjoy!
Signed into arc, still tries to charge me for the kahn cosume

Or they may realise that nobody wants this piece of trash and decide to leave ARC for the people that want it and for the people that don't can still use the original launcher (Wishful thinking as they will lose a lot of people who don't want to use ARC or Steam and I'm one of those who may decide to cut my losses as well still a Star Trek Fan but becoming less of a STO fan

# 717 Lobi & Shuttle
04-03-2014, 08:15 AM
Sucks to be me. I thought I'd have plenty of time to get the Lobi & Ferengi Shuttle, but RL projects take priority and I was falling behind on the Terran Empire MU event. As a consequence of that missed the deadline. I was actually looking forward to getting those more than the uniforms. Guess i'll have to settle for the uniforms as consolation prizes. Sucks worse they are per-character unlocks.

Any chance there'll be other free shots for the Na'Far shuttle?

It's not the Wrath of Khan Kirk uniform that is a C-Store charge. It's under off-duty uniforms and what Khan wore in the movie. And it's not even called Khan in the off-duty section. It's called Bare Chested something or another.

Yup, it's not under uniforms sadly.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
