Compensation Rewards Are Backwards

  • Same here. Placed 249, got 18,000 honor.
  • So if DB take the data away from people, loads are gonna be annoyed. If they don't then I will be annoyed because they got a data without earning it.

    I wouldn t care, i just want my promised Data. If everyone gets em...so it is.

    If they get them without having earned them that will impact you in the next event as they will incorrectly have an event character.

    Thats why i wrote „if EVERYONE“ gets a Data. As it is now that some 1500+ got em and others not, this indeed wouldn t be OK. And nobody of us „earned“ the extra Data anyway, since we couldn t know that DB made this kind of compensation. ;)

    Surely that means those who finished in 2-1500 should get 2 datas to even things out then

    See, here's the thing...

    It'd be great if they could make it even, somehow.

    But am I the only one who thinks that might still end up wrong? XD

    Well, it seems that DB's programming is faulty AGAIN ... which is no surprise. As like as very often lately with their translation of packs, which are hilarious off and funny.
    [Feel free to comment on that issue, too. My write up is here]

    If you give the programmer just @Riker's information
    • Players with the event rank 1501 or lower will receive a bonus 18,000 Honor.

    he will come up with something like this:

    IF %rank is < than 1500 THEN reward %PackageHonour

    thinking that "lower" means the range of 1500 to 2

    But as human, we can take references and know, that "lower" was meant as "worse ranking then 1500".

    • Players ranking between rank 2-1500 will receive a bonus copy of H.M.S. Pinafore Data.

    Well, slap your "script kiddy" programmer 2 times and let him change it.

    cant be to difficult to write right code with exchanging < with > ...
  • If I end this horrible DeBacle with a 7/5 useless Data, I will fuse the second copy and favorite it so I can stare at in perpetuity and be reminded of why I should never spend another minute of time, effort, or money on this game.

    Exactly this... Was contemplating the 10 pack offer, but then DB make a mistake compensating a mistake which which largely affect a second event you have to wonder why.
  • New to forum commenting so can't post links or pictures. But this is a classic captain's face palm moment. How about a new collection of characters with face palms...there are so many options! Not to mention a nice recognition that DB has it's share of these moments...like this one.

    And yet, I placed 13,025th and got the correct mailing. Something more wonky is afoot...

    Well, many in our fleet (100+ members) ARE really feeling the same lately. DB should really start hiring a QUALITY MANAGER to check and double check, testing ... and not always "Live test" on the "hot game". There are so many areas of the game ... We are paying customers - at least most of us have at any point of the game spend some money) - and not BETA TESTERS

    It's definitely more complicated than that.

    So if DB take the data away from people, loads are gonna be annoyed. If they don't then I will be annoyed because they got a data without earning it.

    They should take him back. They could give a legendary citation to everyone instead, plus Data for those who should have actually received him.
    Some people who got him by mistake may have started leveling him, if they didn't pay attention to the forum or the previous email and there are probably some who ranked low but had wasted lots of resources on packs or on the faction part, so if they got Data by mistake they will be very annoyed to lose him again.

    As for me, I got the correct 18000 honor for my rank somewhere around 3900/4000 and I was very happy with it until I found out that I don't know how many players with ranks lower than my own got a free 5* instead. I know it shouldn't matter, but still...

    Anyway, the whole thing is quite funny and may still end up in a better compensation for everyone, so maybe that's the best way to look at it :D

    Maybe they sorted by name, or DBID and then sent out the messages? Or maybe they used the wrong event rankings, or maybe, just maybe someone in a different timeline decided not to advise the young Trill to look for purpose elsewhere....
  • RennJaxoRennJaxo ✭✭✭✭✭
    So my main takeaway from this latest DBacle is that we should all be expecting a shiny new Data?

    Honestly DB, please, keep it up. The amount of free stuff I keep getting for doing basically nothing has made any actual spending in this game completely unnecessary!
  • Ranke 1007, receive 18.000 honor and no data :(
  • Hunter247Hunter247 ✭✭✭✭
    I really can not see an easy way out for this.

    If finishers below 1500 get a free Data it devalues the reward.

    If those who finished above 1500 don't get him we are being penalised for what was a frankly awful grind.

    The only fair thing to do is to send out two copies of Data to those who should have had him as it would be unfair to remove it from any user
  • KanonKanon ✭✭✭
    Ranked 418th, I got the 18k honor
  • I'm betting they give us a choice of 'corrected' compensation. Probably between the Data we should have gotten and a citation.
  • Zetterbeard Zetterbeard ✭✭✭✭✭
    Not gonna lie, I think this is hilarious.

    DB still owes me a Data.

    At least one. Unless they remove all the Data's sent out incorrectly
  • KanonKanon ✭✭✭
    At this point, I thinl I want a Data, a citation, the honor, and a real life holodeck for my house.

    Jokes aside, I tried really hard and spent a lot of chrons to rank high and get Data in this event, and it is my first time in the top 500. Sad to see it was all for nothing.
  • Finished 814, got 18k honour

    Stop being dramatic lol. You already got your rewards from the event, and this issue will be corrected (eventually).

    Well the only reason I spent the extra hours and crons above threshold was to get the new Data.

    As the new Data is now likely to go out to everyone that time and effort was totally wasted

    Well, if they actually fix it, I will be ok, if they "fix it" in a way that I end up with the same rewards I would have gotten without trying, I'lI'll be sad.
  • Placed 175 - received 18000 honour. No Data.

    Haven't opened that or the 1000 sorrytons...

    Waiting to see what's what when the smoke clears.

    Not really, the people who actually got new Data likely aren't going to be able to level him up before the next event.... things may have changed a bit but back in the day when I was a Lv. 20 captain...it took months to level up a 5* guy.

    I had new Data leveled 15 minutes after the event ended. Took about 1000 chrons and some replication.
