    Amazon Preorders

    Post by Caelen on Sun Jan 10, 2010 10:17 am

    Anyone here pre-order from Amazon.com? If so, have you gotten your OB key yet?

    I'm not really stressing over it until Monday, but I thought I'd see how others are doing. STO's pre-order FAQ indicated the 8th, Amazon has indicated anywhere from the 8th to the 26th(?!). Most common answer from Amazon on the subject is that the codes will be emailed by the 11th.

    There's been a few links passed around for downloading a STO client ... no guarantees they're the same as the OB client. Many agree that if it's a CB client, it'll be patched to OB client when you are able to access the game. In any event, I have a client installed that supposedly was built Dec 29th 2009. Whether it'll work or not, no idea.

    As far as I know, the open beta runs from the 12th Jan until the 28th Jan, the headstart starts a day later. That what I have figured out from the latest Amazon.de offer..

    I have the same problem... Amazon hasn't sent me anything either. I'm hoping to hear from them tomorrow. (crosses fingers) if not... well... crud.

    Well, theoretically we'll get our keys tomorrow. As long as I get my key before Tuesday, I'll be fine. If OB starts and we still don't have our keys ... well, I imagine I won't be the only one raising lower planes of suffering Smile

    I think it's possibly accurate, but perhaps there is a USA vs UK support problem here. Hopefully it will all be ironed out tomorrow.

    I'm ordering the Digital Deluxe edition through Steam, so I'll be getting the Chromodynamic Armor in addition to the Joined Trill class, TOS uniforms, KHAAAN and blood wine emotes, the NX prefix and Automated Defense Battery.

    Chromodynamic Armor has the following bonus attributes:

    • 6.1% Physical Resistance
    • 6.1% Kinetic Resistance
    • 2.6% Energy Resistance
    • +15% Critical Damage
    • +5% Critical Chance
    • +3% Energy Damage
    Anyone else picking up the Steam version?

    Nah, I'm good with a Borg BO Smile Although, if there really is an issue with Amazon, I may go with Steam so I can get my beta access, heh.

    "Online / In-Store Pickup Customers: A beta activation code and download instructions will be emailed beginning 1/11/10."

    gawd, I am getting really envious here.
    All I have found in Germany is the Amazon preorder. The German Gamestop isnt even offering anything Star trek. Btw still nothing from Amazon.de about the beta key

    Do all those things come with the steam version? Or is that because you have purchased other copies from other retail vendors?

    I thought the skill bonus would be worth more utility wise as I'm assuming that it will mean that your ahead of the leveling curve but I don't see anyone else preordering the 500 skill points, is that because it's really not that useful? If not I'll be going with the steam if it has all those crazy little packages that sound awesome.
