Compensation Rewards Are Backwards

    I think two Datas ranked 2-1500 and an offer to swap Silva out for a Data should do it. Also, the honor is gratefully accepted ;)

    I haven't claimed the honor btw. But if others did (by mistake?) then that also complicates the issue of fixing things.

    same I haven’t claimed it but I suspect the horse has already bolted on this I think the only way forward is increasing the compensation then chalking this one up. That way the majority are aligned it’s the very top I feel sorry for on this.

    I claimed mine because I assumed that I actually miss-read the post. I thought it was actually going to be like event rewards, everyone gets the 18k honor, then the next tier gets the datas. Then the Data never came.

    Same here. I expected to see the upgrade bar flashing, but no.
  • @Shan will the issue of players that spent honors and/or 25$ To IMO Data before the compensation was announced that are now stuck with 6 Data be addressed?!?

    CS are giving us a negative response.

    I have no specific update on that point but I will bring it up to the CS Team Leads.
  • At this point they need to just find a way to identify those who don't have a HMS Data and award them. This puts everyone who didn't get one "accidentally - aka we screwed up the compensation" at a disadvantage to those who did get one "accidentally".

    No thanks. A 1/5 legendary is a good bonus in a galaxy. those who did not throw thousands of chrons at last weekend's event should NOT be on even footing for this weekend, they could have threshold and out and hoarded far more Chrons otherwise since the skirmish event. I'd rather the "oops" data's be removed, but I'm crossing my fingers that it's not a large portion of the population.
  • @Shan: The player base needs reassurances that DB won't destabilize an event mid way through again, and that compensation will be given out fairly, and not randomly.
    Currently some players got an extra Data or 18k they weren't meant to have, and some even get both of them. While those of us who were not randomly gifted are being put at a further disadvantage going into this weekend's event.
    I for one (a three year subscriber) am not happy - but DB has been fair in the past, and I expect them to be so now.

    I am so confused by how they decided on this compensation and who got it. I'm most confused as to why the player who WON the event and literally walked away with everything the event offered also got ~6 weeks worth of honor for winning. We all got screwed over by the bonus error in the same way, yet the top player basically gets the equivalent of a free 4* and 5* citation for managing to overpower the broken event? What the $%#@?

    I dumped every last chron I could possibly scrap together int othe event and finished at just under 1500. And the main reason for that was because the crew bonuses were paying out wrong. If the bonuses had been working properly, I would likely have had more of the event item to cash in at the last minute and could have finished above 1500. So why is 1500 the cutoff? Why is the compensation so different? And why does all of this seem so random?

    I don't get why people who actually managed to get higher ranks despite the bonus error got a second Data, but everyone that just missed the top 1500, likely due to the bonus errors were handed a 4* citation for being screwed out of the 1/5 Data.
  • I finished 210. I think the DB response was just - okay. I see we're all still fuming, but we don't know how many players ranked above 1500 received the Data in error. Even with my legit Data devalued, the more fair solution would have been to give everybody who participated a Data. He's not good in the gauntlet anyway, so it's not like we'll see him 10 refreshes in a row like Mirror Picard...

    The problem with this is that the same is true of other players. I found that I had to play longer and use a lot more crons than I normally would to get into the top 1000 (and I was literally fighting to hold position to almost the last minute)

    If I had got more bonus items along the way this might not have happened.

    The fact that someone who didn't even play the galaxy part could get the same compensation as someone who spent hours (and tens of thousands of crons) seems extremely unfair.

    We will make every efforts so that it does not happen again.
  • @shan I still feel like I got screwed in this one. Didn't with the lottery and get the "free" data like many did that didn't fall in the top 1500. I really think this needs to be looked at again. Perhaps give everyone one and delay this event. I'm so close to walking away because of this one and I never thought I'd say that.
    Sir, I protest! I am NOT a merry man!

    I am sorry you feel this way, and I understand.
    I can only reiterate what I said earlier, we will make every efforts to not have these kind of issues again.

    The event will not be delayed, and we will not be giving out a Data to everyone in ranks 1501+
  • @shan I still think that the compensation is logically flawed. The biggest single problem as far as I can see was that the Silvas obtained from the previous event did not get the appropriate bonus and yet the system devised fails to take any account of that.
  • Soooo... despite the original clusterphlox affecting everyone equally... DB decides to graduate the compensation.

    Then they get the graduated compensation wrong... and decide to further clusterphlox things by rewarding people who got a Data IN ERROR with the extra honor they should have got, undeservedly, and keeping their Data...

    Meanwhile, the rest of us get the finger.

    Thanks, DB... you really know how to make players feel valued.
  • @Shran You must understand that being unfair in compensation is going to cause a lot of players to feel cheated. People remember injustice and being treated unfairly far more strongly than any other emotion.
    To my knowledge, and I've played for a long time, this is the first time DB has distributed a bonus in a very unfair manner, and the first time that they're not correcting a mistake they have obviously made.
  • @Shan @JazzRiker I am superiously getting fed up with CS. Even the supervisor don’t get it. I don’t want additional stuff, I bought 2 citations to IMO Data before the compensation was announced. I just want a citation back and they can take away the 6th Data I don’t need.

    How difficult is it to understand? You are punishing me for spending money on the game. This is ridiculous, CS doesn’t understand how the game works and are blindly followings instructions without consideration of the circumstances. I’m sure we’re only an handful of players that cited Data before.

    Please check #470610

    Heeeeeeeeeelp!!!

    Brought it up, this will be sorted out!

    They had no problem doing this with Mirror Picard in the past.
  • And yet.... The three people who ended up with a 6th Data still haven't had the issue sorted.

    And people who didn't get a bonus data are still at a major disadvantage this event.
