Looks like the unlocks from the arc codes and/or any pre-order bonus are once per account (not once per character), so be careful before you claim (plus I would use a lock box while your EGO is below 100 so you can at least get some modable weapons...but thats just me).

Not sure if you can claim a set in both US and EU servers atm.

does the cash shop sells stuff that the arc codes give you, if so then its just pure greed and i hate games that do that

[Edit]

really are you sure about that? I thought theyd be for all the chars

is there a way to claim for 2nd char if you decide to reroll?

So are you saying the Challenger is for only one character too?

Just made a second character and I have rewards available for both although for some reason I am not getting the RM Nomad M4.

GOG
04-01-2013, 06:03 PM
Yup, I didn't see the Nomad appear either. I hadn't claimed em all (just picked a couple to test the waters). Nomad and the Steam Sniper rifle.

04-01-2013, 06:13 PM
ok so its for all chars then? can OP confirm again?

GOG
04-01-2013, 06:17 PM
Dunno not claimed everything just to test it out. I just claimed a nomad and the steam sniper rifle. Didn't see em on the second toon. However I've not seen my DDE items yet so all the claim stuff it up in the air atm. Just telling ppl to be careful until we get a clarification from someone (I'd love for it to be all toons)

Confirming. Arkfall salvage and lockboxes are per-account.

Dear Trion, if you couldn't launch Europe along with NA server - you could at least make those pity bonuses account-wide.

TL;DR EU screwed even more.

WHAT? I tried a bit on NA servers (since eu servers seem to be down atm), and claimed all the items, am I screwed on the EU servers now? If so, Im seriously pissed off..

I can't speak for every single item, but you are given access to the pre-order weapon on different characters even if you have claimed them before.

Actually, from what I can tell that holds true for everything. The only item I have not tested yet is the lockboxes.

I heard you're screwed if you do lockboxes and change region or new char, that's going from a few posts on steam forum and other places.

though wait on an official response.

Tried both Servers and i get and can claim everytime all items for all character (except the items that are missing for every char)....... just like it is supposed to be

I was able to create a character, claim everything, delete start a new character and claim it again. The only thing I didnt try was the lockboxes. But the preorder, arkfall codes, and retailer items were able to be claimed again.

Thanks Aeekto, thats comforting to hear. Nice to see you on the live forums :)

Its almost 4 am here, something woke me up at 3 am, then I saw that someone had said that the eu server was up.. but it wasnt when I tried. *sigh* cant go to sleep now, not before Ive gotten my charnames.

<-- Not entirely awake yet.

The 1st Thread

Looks like the unlocks for pre-orders and the arc codes are per account (not per character), so be careful before you claim them.

Haven't checked yet to see if you get a new set if switching between EU and US servers (I presume you do as the characters aren't carried across).

Two character slots, and a possible 3rd race to come in the DLCs....what to do :D

Were two of these really necessary?

Same happened to me.... just woke up in the middle of the night and because i couldnīt sleep anymore i just tried to login out of boredom and was surprised i got in :D
But i just only did some testing and saved my charname.... will wait for official launch until i start with my realy long play session ;) (actually canīt get back in anyways on EU... NA works fine tho)

can you give/sell this stuff to one of your friend? then delete the character and do it again?

same like outfits and vehicles ...... you canīt sell or trade them.... only lockbox items, but that isnīt the time worth it because you will gain more things faster by playing instead of doing tutorial over and over and over again just for some scrip each round.

But if you want to do it because you are to lazy to play in the real world and only want easymode-tutorial, then just a little warning for you: "itīs exploiting.... exploiting is against the rules and could be punished with a ban" ;)

I only tested with some items but I was able to redeem them with both of my characters.

I do not understand you can not trade and sell in the game, or you can not trade and sale outfits and vehicles?
For exemple can you trade/sell the pre-order weapon? the Red Dodge?

Don't worry for the way I will play :) I am asking mostly to understand 'how works the game' and maybe to be able to 'give' exclusive stuff to friend.

Aeekto
04-01-2013, 07:27 PM
You canīt sell or trade vehicles, outfits or preorder items.... just as i said.


Edit: After severall tests now it seems claiming items is still bugged..... sometimes i get a lockbox, sometimes not...... sometimes its 13 items to claim and the other time 16 items and still a lot is missing.

Actually i hope they will wipe for the official launch (since the game hasnīt released yet)

Not going to happen, these are paying clients who play for 4+ hours already - not us, alpha-testers.

Doesnīt matter since itīs testing phase and "NO" official launch yet!

Just a quote for you of the Q&A:

Q: So is this a “soft launch”?
A: No, we do everything hard.

So it still could be possible that there will be a wipe...... hope to get an answer from devs soon.

Thank you for the answer... I am sorry to make you say stuff twice... english is not my first language.
Just to be sure... you can sell/trade the other 'regular items' you find during the game? (I only palyed the beta few hours)

lol
right...the game has launched. theres not gonna be a "wipe". You have any idea what sort of backlash that would create? especially since theres no reason to wipe the game?
