Olympic Upgrade - Dont Miss it

Post by Coops » Mon Feb 12, 2018 7:50 pm

OK, so you're all collecting Flags and Beacons so you can hope to win on the Handins and claim a new shiny Olympic Pod. You also have a few shiny competitions to enter over the Olympic Period, but now something Totally New.

In the next 24 hours, you will begin to see a new 'Olympic Upgrade Token' appear in the festive hand out.

Whats it for Coops?
I'm glad you asked :) Collect 50 of these and send them to ME 'Coops' - Then follow the instructions Below. Please READ the instructions as this not something I'm going to keep repeating or keep pointing at over the next few weeks. So read, digest and Follow :)

The tokens (50 collected and sent to Coops) entitle the sender to a Free Upgrade on any of the following items :

Ship-Based Items

Shields
Reactors
Weapons
Cargo Expanders (ONLY CARGO)


Select the item FROM YOUR SHIPS STORE - SEND IT TO ME 'COOPS' ensuring you have also sent me the Olympic Upgrade Tokens first. I will then add an Olympic Bonus to the item and send it back to you.

Bonues will vary based on the item and level. But you won't be disappointed.

The item returned to you will be a CONVERTED (renamed) UNIQUE Item. It will perform the same as normal just boosted. Call it a Coops Olympic Foundry upgrade if you lke :)

Questions & Answers
1: Is this offer limited to just one item? - No, Collect as many tokens as you can (swap/trade them) and for EACH 50 I will upgrade an item from the list above.
2: Can I get you to upgrade it more than once - No lol.
3: So i just send you 50 tokens and then the item and you upgrade it randomly - Yes, please don't ask for XYZ upgrade.
4: Where should I drop the tokens and the item - Anywhere is good
5: Should I drop you a line to let you know - Always good to hear from players, but yes to save me time and energy feel free to send me a PM letting me know you have dropped off the Tokens and Item.
6: Will you upgrade an Alien Item - Yes

Lastly - PLEASE PLEASE READ Above before blindly sending me items NOT covered in that list. Please read the Q&A's so I don't spend precious time answering or sending you back here to get your answer.

Your item will have a random upgrade added to it based on its type. Please do not send me PM's asking for a spoecific upgrade.

This offer (trade in upgrade) expires on the final day of the Paralympics.

OK -so the Upgrade process is being well and truly utilised lol - So much so that my evenings and mornings are busy working on all these upgrades. That's great and I'm REALLY pleased to like this idea :)

But...

1: Had a constant stream of folks PM'ing me asking how they send me an item that's been through the Research Academy. The answer is you can't. You can ONLY send me items from the list in my post and items that CAN be TRADED.

2: The second one is players have been sending me all kinds of items. PLEASE READ the post above, only items from the categories outlined can be considered for an upgrade.

3: Lastly and this one is a bit of a bugbear as its causing a lot of PM'ing back and forth - Please Send the 50 Tokens !!! AND the item. I have players sending me 48, 49 etc and then no item. Or an item and no tokens etc...

Kinda confusing for me so let's see if we can't nail a few of the issues down with players reading above :)

Best Wishes and happy Hunting Tokens. You still have time folks!

FINAL REMINDER: HAND-INS OF TOKENS AND ITEMS MUST BE COMPLETED BY 6:00 PM TONIGHT GAME TIME!
That's two hours past the Olympic shutdown time

AFTER THAT ALL TOKENS WILL SELF DESTRUCT!

ANYONE SENDING ME ITEMS AFTER THAT TIME WILL HAVE THEM RETURNED TO THEM.
