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.
