    Think I'll be getting a halberd.

    Is there any chance of a sale reprise like steam do?

    They said they were going to redo the first day (?) of sales because that was when the servers were down and a lot of people couldn't get on to buy stuff, but I don't think there has been a word on anything else.

    I'm kinda tempted by the Magrider plating, but I know it'll bug the hell out of me to spend 99SC and have just one SC lurking in my account for forever, never to be spent...

    And there you have the reason why they went with 99 and not 100.

    That only works if there's something you can actually spend 1SC on though, as someone who doesn't have membership that 1SC would lurk in my account until the game is wrapped up and never be spent.

    Today's deals:


    • Liberator guns: CAS30 Tanks Buster (nose) and M60-A Bulldog (tail) are 125SC, A30 Walker (Tail) is 250, L105 Zephyr and C150 Dalton (Belly) are 350SC.
    • 99SC Deal: Giraffe Armor Camo.
    • 1SC Deal: Flash Icecrusher Tyre Spikes.

    That's what I mean. You cannot spent it. If only a few thousand people have 1 to 9 SC sitting in their account they cannot spent then that's several thousand dollars of profit for SOE that people invested into the game but cannot redeem. That's the same bs like the MS points system was. Until recently I was quiet happy with the pricing system (system, not the costs) in PS2 because you could always find something to spend your remaining SC on. But of course SOE found a way to screw this one up too.

    True, although seeing as it's about 1 cent to a SC they'd need a hundred thousand purchases leaving 1 un-spendable SC for a thousands bucks, which seems like a bit of a low return to me. All the same, it's not a nice move seeing as they're never likely to introduce something which you could spend that SC on.

    SOE do seem to do a lot of strange things with their currency/pricing systems. You've got to wonder if they have some sort of brilliant hidden master plan or if they just don't have a clue what they're doing.

    With the exception of the sale rerun, that marks the end of the Christmas sale. Pretty good haul, I think, in all.

    I shan't list *everything* I bought, but I spent a round 14k SC or so; chiefly on camo, lumifibre, helmets, and some weapons.

    That's crazy. I logged in (nearly? not sure) every day and didn't get a boost - with my pro7-account. Anyone got a boost?

    Seriously, Christmas is well and truly over at this point. Could someone unsticky this, please?

    Not that I don't feel with you fellows who have run into problems here, but the thread seems a bit dated.
