No... Sure you didn't get some kind of scam mail wanting you to buy it from some third party site? Have a SS of the e-mail?

Worry where they are getting your email... if its the mail you use for the game consider changing it.

huh? it's not actually trion sending these emails or everyone would get them. most likely the people getting them used that email address for a non-official-trion site and are now getting spam.

Its a legit email.

Its a legit email.

Ouch... I have a feeling this one might leave a sour taste in some peoples mouth.. Especially the ones that bought a bunch of tier 4s when they were buggy(or weren't and just found out tier 3s were better in terms of turnover) ..

Also curios to what the "More/Unique" is.. Only thing they didn't include was grenades in terms of what we could already get... Outfits or Vehicles maybe..?

Still ouch..

As far as I can tell. The extra loot in the boxes are only if you buy with Bits, not ingame currency.

Sajin
04-18-2013, 11:16 AM
Yeah they're saying buy bits and get this basically....

Yea, that's what I gathered to from the fine print.. Hence the sourness..

Then it also leaves the question of.. Did they change the chance percentage between tier 3 / 4? Pretty big gamble when your already gambling.

Yes it's legit. It's just a newsletter promoting the store.

There's two new costumes too. One of them is that costume in the promo material that a bunch of people wanted.

Excellent, so either grind or just buy. I hate those type of games.

Oh, after looking at the pictures, it's not exactly like that trenchcoat one. It's really close though. It basically doesn't have the long coat and there's some extra stuff on the lower half of the leg.

Screenshot looks like it could be real but still doesnt mean it is. Im not even ruling out that it is real but I find it odd that some people have gotten it an soo many did not. News like that ussually goes paired with on-site promotions and francly I havent seen it.
Im curious who the sender is

Oh man, I bought drifter last night, but I also bought a couple of t4 because I have enough inventory already and thought I'd take a chance lol. Got junk and now they buffed it haha :p

Not a nice gesture imo...

Yup they should have been like. "Once we get the game to where the majority of the community can play for more than an hour think about buying these items!"

That drifter armor looks like a RESKIN of the Preacher Harmony outfit earned from Co Op Explosions 101. The one the chick is wearing is a RESKIN of the Rebel Journalist outfit or at at least EXTREMELY close to it. but I think it's the exact same. Just FYI.

Like I said Im not ruling out anything but its strange all around, why do some people get the email and some dont.
Then again I havent had problems with the few t4 boxes Ive gotten.

I got the same email. Its strange cos going by that it is saying buy a tier 4 box and get awesome loot. But I've never got anything bwtter than some blues items. And they weren't all blue either! Maybe 2 green and 2 blues something like that. Although I've only bought them with resources not bits.

Yes, so I got bits and got 2 level 4s and a level 2. The level two had a fragger and a blaster in it. The 2 fours had 2 rocket launchers (one blue and one green, blue has melee green and clip mod) a orange sniper with a scope mod, a blue detonator with a ammo mod, a pistol similar to the one nolan had, a flash gren another biogrenade and a respark

Regions, time defferences them finding out sending it to everyone is BAD so they pulled it, hackers got into your email and deleted it before you could see it....vampires sucked your blood and you're actually one of them and in fact you actually received it but can't remember. So many possibilities. Endless really.

Nice.

I used to print out cards at work using card stock, and then use a yellow highlighter to turn the green sections of the card neon green so the game would recognize them, lol.

I know.. create a game that will hardly let you on then send you crap to buy that you can't bc you can't get on! Mad geniuses I say!

I have the email and it's the same email address that I received emails saying I received my arkfall codes, defiance servers are up on release, got free boosts and defiance tv show premier is showing.

I have no reason to think you are lieing, dont worry. But Im sure you can understand why Im.. puzzled why some did and why some didnt get the email.
Regardless this email is hardly worth getting all worked up about. Sure the game has its issues but the world goes on. Stablility issues seem to vary per time zone and platform, even though the email doesnt mention it , lockboxes are easely obtained within the game's resources without spending a dime.
