No, Cryptic isn’t giving Magic Legends refugees 7K Zen – but here’s what you *are* getting

UNDEAD UNDEAD UNDEAD

Cryptic giveth and Cryptic taketh away: PWE and Cryptic sent ’round an email to some Magic Legends players today night, a “thank-you gift” for fans left adrift following the cancellation of the game earlier this month. And at least initially, the gift looked almost outrageously generous. As enticement to play Cryptic MMO Star Trek Online, the studios were offering a two bundles bundle with everything from multiple T6 ships to currency totaling 7000 Zen, which as MOP reader Panagiotis pointed out would be worth something like $70. The Neverwinter enticement gift was generous too, including the moon elf race and unicorn mount.

Well, you know what they say about things that sound too good to be true. The companies then sent out a second letter to Magic Legends players titled “Oops, We Made A Typo – Here’s a Thank You Gift for Playing” and a new placard for gifts. It turns out players weren’t supposed to get those stacks of Zen; those were just supposed to be the values of the other items in the pack. So nope, you’re not scoring a combined 7000 Zen after all, but you are getting stuff worth that much – including all four of those T6 STO ships. And it’s still one hell of a sunset gift.

We do note here that not all Magic Legends players received these emails and gift codes, or at least not yet. At least one of our writers, for example, got codes, but two others who played the game didn’t, and folks on Reddit are speculating that the codes are either being sent in batches or are being tiered for players who dropped cash on the game. If you don’t score an email, maybe check out that thread, as some kind souls with no plans to play STO or NW are giving their codes away.

I wish i got 7k zen, I already had all the ships and officers bought over the game’s entire lifespan >.<

WOW, I hadn’t played sto in a while. That T6 Pathfinder is a nice ship. They must have buffed up science abilities because I don’t remember them being good.

For players who know how to use them, SCI is probably the nastiest class on the game (PVE & PVP).

The speculation about paying players getting the codes first or such can’t be true, I never dropped a dime on it and got the codes yesterday.

I have not gotten the email yet.

i received a code and did not spend a penny… i also only played thru the tutorial and and afterwards logged off for good… so no it doesnt seem like you needed to spend money… or have had x amount of playtime….

i will note however that i have been playing perfect world games as well as spending money in them sinse before neverwinter or sto were even things yet… so that might have something to do with it but i highly doubt it

I’ma guess I played for at least 10 hours, probably quite a bit more than that to see if something changed in the “endgame”.

With the handling of this game, a final tick mark has been acquired and all entities involved have earned their way onto my “no-no list…so I’ll post the codes here if I get any, nothing yet.

No need to post the codes. They’re tied to your account already so won’t work for others.

Ahhh…thanks for the insight. Saves some effort and disappointment.

I got the email as well; no money spent, didn’t play that long (didn’t even max out a character.)

I wish I played STO or Neverwinter (though I was thinking about NWN when the level squish happens.)

Do we get to claim all of these then, if we want? I’m at work and can’t actually redeem anything.

Reader

yes i was able to redeem all 3 codes just fine and all are in my games as we speak… the content in sto can be claimed via the cash shop menu under promotions if i recall… in neverwinter i think i picked them up at the npc where majority of the promo stuff goes to for various giveaways (Forgot his name sorry)

Alright then. Thanks for the reply! Not sure if i’ll do anything with either of them, but might as well claim it. :)

the free t6 ships are well worth it, probably some of the best the game has (at least upper tier). All the stuff in the packages will make trying STO much easier.

I spent about 20 minutes tops playing Magic, and got the emails last night. I didn’t even notice the mistake in the first email, I was too busy being surprised and pleased that they were sending anything. :D

Got the email this morning and I never spent anything in Legends, so it’s definitely not based on spending.

Wow, I was shocked by the sto stuff. I only played the game for 20 minutes.
