New PWE site and forum
« on: June 20, 2012, 10:04:14 AM »
I can't get logged in, and since it is impossible to post without a PWE account, I'm not sure you can NOT have your accounts linked.

This sucks.

The forums or the game?

Both really. God help you if you want to buy cpoints. Now you have to buy Zen, and then convert that over to Cpoints.

Oh, you can't put links in your signature anymore, your avatar has to now be in your signature, the forums are an over all mess that are harder to read now.

All the old posts got assigned to a single dummy user. All post counts lost. Some people have titles, some don't (probably depends on when you put in PWE account.) Join dates all June.

Oh how nice, when you link, it dumps your Cryptic account. How much you wanna bet my "level appropriate" weapon is a blue polaron split beam rifle?

Here we go. Long live our new Korean Overlords! All our forums are belong to them now!

And the dyslexic Klink transporter officer still keeps beaming me back where I came from. It's a hierarchy that executes people for incompetence, but somehow this guy holds onto the job.

Whether you are getting anything at all from here on in, is it cpoints.. or is it too converted over to "Zen"?

Any C-points you have in your Cryptic account will remain untill spent. Then you'll have to purchase Zen points. I think you get less for a buck though. The rate is in the forums. Heretic just announced his departure. This is bad. New lockboxes are going to be "Doff reinforcement packs". New ship is a frieghter geared toward trading/Doff assignments, that supposedly sits in your shuttlebay. I'm gettin' the feelin' the mental patients are running the asylum over at PWE.

The funny thing is Heretic wasn't particularly talented.. however he is more talented than lolGozer and lolCaptain Retard.. I mean Gecko.

Nah, PWE is just a chinese eastern mmo firm.. they haven't figured out what western gamers like.... and cryptic well... dumb decisions and cryptic do go hand in hand.


I bet you I see that new freighter in the pvp ques. :D

But do you know if you're going to be getting Zen Points each month with that LTS? Or did they just go "fucklulz we fucked you again!"

Good question, I bet the stipend quietly died in this move.

BTW, you MUST link accounts in the near future, promotion or no. Also, if you use NoScript, it can claim to have linked when it actually failed - I wasn't able to get my LTS title and 'days subbed' info until I re-tried with all scripts allowed.

Right the stipend, I forgot about that. I'll check. I had no problems (none that I'm aware of anyway) linking. The way they presented it, smacked of a communist election, though. "Lookie here, boy, link your accounts, and get free dilithium". It's only after you link, that you realize you just toasted your Cryptic account by doing so. Either way, ALL Cryptic accounts are going the way of the dodo bird. Our new, communist, overlords just derive a certain pleasure, from letting people trigger their own puppies. I think Nintendo is somehow involved, right Kalin?
