Login Reward Weapons Reacquisition

Recommended Posts

It has been 1 year since I threw my toys out the pram about getting my Azima back. So I'd like to post a reminder!
In Dev Stream #100 Which was 2 years ago now @[DE]Steve & @[DE]Rebecca said we'd eventually have a way to get our login reward weapons back and still waiting, I won't try support again (something something biased people)

I'm coming up on login day 300 where I'd thought I'd be able to get the Azima back or at least have the choice to. I don't have that choice. So I am forced to log in for another 200+ days to possibly get a prompt to get the Azima back... There is already a way to reacquire sold/lost/deleted quest parts from Space Dad (Simaris) What's the hold up on Log in weapons. I'm not going to fall for the "We can't restore / track who got what from login weapons" As last year I posted a person getting their Azima back after selling it 2 years prior from support because they won the support lottery and someone bent the rules for them.

Outline a solution that doesn't just make it so you get a free slot for whatever and you get a weapon when it's meta and can just get rid of it when you don't need it at that moment.

They have rules on such things so it's not abused. As I believe it's because log in reward weapons come with a weapon slot as well as to remove pressure from support from constantly restoring weapons all the time. However I believe these rules to be too strict and it's a lottery as some support staff will bend the rules where as others are by the book. But as mentioned systems are in place now so what are we waiting for.

Veldt is a login reward, right? I found its bp in my Tenno Lab

No the Veldt isn't a login reward, you may be confusing that was the Zenith Rifle.

Make it a Cephalon Simaris offering that gives you a blueprint. The system is already in place. Not saying they took my idea a year ago but it was a suggestion I put forward multiple times a year ago.

Veldt isn't a login weapon, the login weapons are azima, zenistar, zenith, and sigma and octantis.  

Why you scrapped something that was given to you for free is beyond me.  Try to think before you smash a weapon for a pitiful amount of credits that doesn't even equate to one dark sector mission usually.

I got it well over 2 years ago in the old login reward system, I was naive, I forgot at the time it was a log in reward weapon so threw it away, I'm not the first that has threw this weapon away in such a naive manor. Please don't get me wrong, It was a mistake, all I wish is to have a way to require it.

You aren't missing much, the azima is kind of garbage as a weapon where it has the unique ability of setting up a very temporary turrent that doesn't deal much damage.  Zenistar used to be good but is garbage now thanks to disc duration changes.  Zenith is okay.  Really the only weapon that is exciting due to melee changes is sigma & octantis.  They probably should just throw it in the simaris offerings for the people who have claimed the weapon off the daily tribute system, as they likely don't want to just throw in BPs for anyone to obtain regardless of how many days they have logged in.

Personally I don't care if the weapon is garbage, I want the weapon so I can play around with it. I've been getting bored so I've moved on to modding weapons and frames in different ways that aren't meta but perform as well as and differently and the Azima 100% intrigues me and has done for well over a year (Since October '18)

Is it selfish of me to want to play with something garbage and try and have fun with it?

Do the same as DE has done with a lot of other other one time only rewards recently. Give them to simaris once you had them in your inventory once. They dont have crafting costs? Okay, make em cost all of your simaris standing.

Simple. Simaris offers the blueprint but you must have mastered the weapon or reached 700 Login Tribute days. A solution is not hard, it has probably just been overlooked for larger updates as Rebecca mentioned in a different topic about ESO rewards.

700 days ... Honestly, I would be salty if they did that but I'd accept it as I'd have a way to get it back.

or they could just put up an alert or event for people to get it, along with all the other login weapons. something that lasts a month, so most people will have one by the time the event ends.

The first thought that came to mind is "Must do 50 public spy missions" no idea why, just thought of the most painful thing possible

I hope someday this whole thing gets sorted out.
Prime weapons being vaulted and unvaulted I kind of understand. Not only are they making money off of that, but it also free up drop lists for people to get new items from. Login rewards though aren't an issue of money. DE isn't making the game better by making these kind of things a restriction. You earned it by your login dedication. A bunch of people are saying it's not even that great of a weapon, so it's not like it would give anybody some kind of unfair advantage to have access to something they're supposed to already have.

I'm rooting for you, man. I hope the change eventually gets here and you and so many other people who were trying to crank through mastery points with limited slots, can manage to get back the weapons they didn't know would be so exclusive but somehow still able to sell.

A blueprint for it should become accessible in the Simaris store once you obtain one, y'know, like every other one-time attainable equipment in the game.

Thats the idea we want, however it's not currently in the game 😞 This is a requested feature for at least 3+ years now

While DE is fixing oversights we also need a way to acquire additional copies of unranked Umbral mods. Having multiple ranks of some of these would make fitting them into specific builds much easier, and require more endo.

That's a pretty good idea. I suggest making a post about it. 🙂 Maybe they'll see it, maybe they won't.

My grandma told me that people won't know you want something unless you ask for it.

It's already been suggested by others, DE doesn't care. And I am resisting the urge to be snarky because your grandma wouldn't like it.

Thank you for your consideration.

I think DE does care and they know what the players want, but there's a  bunch of things in the way. Like when watching the prime times and the dev streams I'll sometimes hear them make a joke or talk about something the players are unhappy with. So I'm pretty sure they know what's up, but even if they're fully capable of making something happen, there's probably a committee or something that has to make approvals about more significant changes. Bureaucracy has its down side.

I was watching a stream today and the chat said something that was both hilarious and absolutely true. They said that DE doesn't listen to suggestions, they want feedback. What this means is that if you give them the solution, they probably won't listen. What they want is feedback on what you don't like so that they can develop the solution on their own.

The problem is that sometimes players know exactly what they want because they play the game, a lot. But what DE wants is to come up with the solution on their own so that they can pat themselves on the back and say good job to each other even though their solution is way too convoluted to work well. Sure, it works but in some cases the players' solutions are far more direct and efficient.

It's called patients mate. They may add a way to get it back but it'll take time. 

The Azima is a unique weapon DE decided to give us but mainly a one time thing. If you kept getting on and go like 600-1200 days more you may get it sometimes but they also have to give the other unique weapons to like the 

Zenith

Sigma & Octantis

It just takes time and effort to make one little login a day and Boom before you know it you'll get it.
