Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Would make sense that a buddy key wouldn't provide permanent benefits, that would be dumb.

So the assumption is that anyone asking for a buddy key for a F2P game is either trying to see if they can keep the gold status, or is just spamming in the first place. As he's only got one post, and that was it, feels like the requests we used to get.

Either way, probably don't need this thread anymore, it's a free game now. And the way they set the gold vs silver rewards up, if you aren't already LTS, it would be dumb to pay money. Silver gets almost everything Gold does, and a couple quick buys in the c-store would fix things cheaper than a subscription...
Perhaps, if I am very lucky, the feeble efforts of my lifetime will someday be noticed and maybe, in some small way, they will be acknowledged as the greatest works of genius ever created by man. ~Jack Handey

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Actually I think you need 30+ days to keep items. Which means that even if it's possible to use 3 buddy passes back to back, you still need at least one more day to qualify.

I agree that the buddy passes should be nerfed now that the game is f2p. I think they should keep the referal program though. You should get some benefit for convincing someone to upgrade to Gold. I have the holographic tribble and science officer, but it would be nice to have the Gal-X.

I was in a fleet pvp competition the other day and the f2p members were not able to join. Is that a restriction on f2p?
