With folks in the PTU begging for a patch release, CIG pulled the trigger. Of course their login server could only spit out a meager 16008 until the surge of traffic waned. And that little stipen CIG promised to pay out for previous hours played? Paid out in spades!
I had over 10M aUEC and others reported much, much more. WOW.
And of course, #DPSCalculator was nonresponsive. Kit time be damned. Didn’t take long to requisition attrition and distortion repeaters and some basic gear. To kit out a few ships the only safe bet to find everything I needed was of course, at Cousins. My Mercury awaits at my hangar.
After a long day I had everything I needed to kit half-dozen fighters and two freighters. All that remained undelivered, 10 atlas jump drives, stored away in my ship’s inventory. Did I mention that big smile on my face????
Then the shit hit the fan! CIG made a MATH error, go figure. The mistake was a crowd-pleaser though as many had spent the first day buying up whatever they could get their hands on. I mean, really, who needs 6 hammerheads? So CIG taketh and purged excessive ship purchases and striped all but 20K aUEC from everyone’s account. There went my jump drives.
Oh the outrage of a socialist event in a fascist society. The shame of it all.
CIG recovered nicely. They uncovered some serious bugs surrounding their “wallet” service, which had some screaming that folks owed CIG credits. Seriously. A “proper” reset of everyone’s account could only be completed by taking the systems down for perhaps the better part of a day or two. CIG did the right thing and kept systems up AND
New for the coming week all Star Citizens will receive 1M aUEC credited to their accounts.
Seriously though, this is a sweet release.
