Veteran rewards coming back to Basilisk, but with a twist


On September 17th 2016. we will be re-enabling Veteran rewards on Basilisk. Now for the twist part... Please try to keep an open mind and remember that Basilisk is still our development tool and that we are all helping test. We will be wiping the records of all previously claimed Veteran rewards, so everyone will be able to get the Vet rewards of their choice again even if they previously claimed it.


PLEASE NOTE: No previously claimed Vet rewards will be deleted, just the records of them being claimed will be removed from the database.


Thank you for your patience, your understanding and continuous support.

Hmmmm, so those who have enjoyed an advantage all this time will now have it basically doubled.... oh well, it's all going "poof" someday anyways... it's all good.. :) I'm glad my open mind kicked in.....

Compared to work that would have been needed for not to clear character history and doing it this way saves time to move forward with the project. And as you said, its going to be poof and after all this is test server. =)

Remember, development project. Game economy isn't in our scope. We will ofc try to do our best, but some times the work will be too much and it will stop our progress for too long and progress for our project is number one.

I have a question for the future "live" server. Do you guys plan to have the same veteran rewards, none, or something different? Personally, I'm not a fan of ADK as they go against the spirit of the game, but my opinion doesn't matter really so I'm just curious.

We dont have an answer, because we don't know. When the time comes to make such decisions, team that will run that future server will be formed and they will make those kind of decisions.

...then you do fun stuff like this and make me feel bad for being so critical at times. (I do it because I care)

I just like this for decoration purposes. Looking forward to it.

Awesome for 9/17! I don't even like to hear the "poof" word but in the meantime it will be nice to see them back. Right now I have 824 days on the books ready for use :)

Maybe this is whats is happening?


For your first milestone you are only offered from the 90 day list. Once you claim on of those, you'll then be offered from the 90 day and 180 day lists for your next claim, etc. You won't see an adk on your first claim regardless of how many days you have logged. You must claim a few things before they'll be on the list.

Since you aren't deleting previously claimed vet rewards, those vets that didn't get to claim their first set should be able to claim a second on a second toon. What am I saying balance would be fair....

Figuring out who claimed what is the problem that we are avoiding by deleting them... thats the whole reason its being done.

Ahh I thought "We will be wiping the records of all previously claimed Veteran rewards" simply meant giving out vet rewards regardless of previously claimed ones. Also in the post it says "PLEASE NOTE: No previously claimed Vet rewards will be deleted, just the records of them being claimed will be removed from the database." Which to me says the old crew that duped the ADK's can claim a second one.

No, you are confused.

The list of who claimed what was messed up by some code updates, figuring out who claimed what is the issue we are avoiding by reseting that info completely, otherwise it would take an enormous amount of work to recover the data, for which we dont have time/people.

The items previously claimed were not deleted.

Making it "fair" by giving people who claimed a vet reward another one involves knowing that they claimed it already, and that is the problem here.

Even deleting the items already in circulation would involve getting that data unless we do a blanket delete of any item types that vet rewards give. A lot of people bought those items and it wouldnt be fair to them either...

There's no "fair" way to deal with this unless the data is recovered, but we dont have volunteers with enough time for that.

That's more or less what I said some people get to claim vet rewards a second time... wake me after the next server wipe.

Happy Vet Rewards Day!
I got lots of fun decorations and since I am opposed to ADKs I sold mine for 25m and went on a shopping spree.
What did I buy?
Lots of SEAs, I speed capped a swordsman and a rifleman. I put together a +25 survey suit. I bought some factory crates of food and swoops. I bought a few paintings. I bought about 100 rancor teeth and about 300 krayt tissues. I made some great swords and some T21s that sliced over 600. I made a valiant and expensive attempt at an LLC over 1200 max but I got two speed slices. Oh well. I paid up some long term maintenance and still have a couple mil in the bank.
A very happy Vet Rewards Day

Come on all,
it's Basilisk, it's still under development. Who cares for double reward? The most important thing is the devs keep dooing their best to give us 1.0 server. That's the n.1 goal ;)

Hi Folks,

Just returned from the 5 year or so hiatus, I have been poking around the forums and saw this. I am about to take the dive in and reinstall the game and reimmerse myself.
So, if I understand this correctly the Vet Rewards are available from the years I played in the past? Or are they gone as of today...

Vlada

They are available again.

Where is there a listing of all current Vet Rewards, and perhaps pictures to see before I claim said items?

Returning after years being gone from the EMU, man I missed this lol
Anyhoo, logged in and saw this thread and logged in, had to create a toon been so long it all was wiped, and hit /claim, said 2138 days old, and I had a couple droids, couple house decorations and the harvester power claim and that was it. Am I missing something here? No ADK's, no nothing.
Thanks.

You probably need to claim something, then you'll get a new window with additional options, etc etc until you get the window with the 1800 days rewards.
