    Infamous Ebon Flintlock Fiasco \o/


    As you probably already heard a lot of people complain about, here am I to do the exact same thing, complain \o/

    I've been watching these forums and the one on SoT's website on and off today, to see if there was any development regarding this problem.

    As far as I can see there is none. Not in the Slightest even.

    So here I go, laying it all out once more.

    Sit tight, grab some savage snacks and sail your ship in circles to get some sweet Athena's Mileage, it's going to be a long one.

    Like a lot of us. i didn't receive my ebon pistol skin yet either, I was one of the first viewers as well (I think roughly 20 minutes before the stream started) and sat through the whole thing (even though I know I didn't have to), people have told me they
    joined being the 13000th+ viewer, only watching it for around 2 minutes, and they did receive the skin almost a day later!

    I thought: "Well maybe it's because Rare were celebrating their 4 day Easter weekend, so they haven't been able to hand out every singe pistol skin yet, and this would have made a lot of sense to me.

    This was until I read someone say "I already contacted SoT/ Rare, they told me it was in (Microsoft's) hands".

    Now this made me worry, I now think that if you didn't receive the skin by now, you'll most likely not receive it anymore, which makes me not want to play the game anymore just out of pure principle.

    Yes I know, it's just an in game skin, it's just some particles, but as a collector and dedicated player, who really wanted this skin (do not forget we were promised this as well,), I can't help but feel betrayed/scammed.

    SoT revolves around skins, and "showing off" your dedication and special skins, it's the only thing you can buy from your hard earned gold at this moment.

    If I can't do this because I'm not receiving the skin I was promised, even though I did exactly what was needed/asked, well that just chops off a huge part of what makes SoT, at least for me personally (and from what I've seen, many others as well).

    Also this "Qualification", limited amount nonsense is total [Mod removed profanity] , nowhere did it say in the announcements that we had to qualify to have a CHANCE at the skin, everywhere, from twitter to discord to even the livestream
    itself, it was never stated anywhere except for the so called Mixpot FAQ, which made it all super vague for everyone.

    And on top of that, the skin was handed out randomized, every single person that reacted to my posts leads me to this Mixpot FAQ, where it clearly states "First come first serve" but this isn't the case, it was given out randomly.., so why is the limitation
    a thing, while the "first come first serve" statement is just thrown out the window?

    This is all super unneeded if you ask me, I mean it's just a bunch of code right? why not just give it to everyone that watched in the first place?

    Now I hear a lot of people say they are getting send back and forth between Rare, Microsoft and Mixer, ending up on the Mixer help forums, where the only help we receive is the same simple non informatic "[Mod removed profanity]" response
    by multiple members of support, and no actual answers as to where it all went wrong and how this is going to be resolved.

    Yes.. I have looked into my order history, as have we all, No.. there is nothing in there, even though I did EXACTLY what was asked, again as have we all.

    We all knew what we had to do, this is an error on Rare's/Microsoft's and or Mixer's side.

    Either this is all a huge miscommunication which will hopefully be resolved and answered soon, or it's a lame unnecessary attempt to keep the Ebon flintlock skin "limited or exclusive" whatever you want to call it, so it can be used as a bait for the next
    Xbox inside or whatever stream, where the same thing will probably happen again...

    Love the game, but this is no way to treat loyal fans, or anyone for that matter.

    So at this point i'll uninstall the game if me and all the other members that are missing the skin won't receive the skin soon.

    Even if it's given to everyone that now owns the game just to resolve this problem, I personally don't care.

    I've seen the suggestion to make a poll, to see how many people that joined the stream BEFORE it actually started, this to see if there might have been a bug which made it so "most" people that joined the stream beforehand didn't qualify for the skin.

    Maybe this would be handy, no idea how we're going to pull this off yet, but it might fix the issue.

    Either that or again.. just give the [Mod removed profanity] pistol skin and everyone will be happy :')

    Please let yourself hear if you still miss the skin so this gets some attention.

    Thanks for reading. Yarr, yoho and all that dwibbledwebble.

    :)

    Hello Scheurmuis,

    I definitely understand how frustrating this situation can be since there is no official statement out there yet.

    We are working on getting an update to all users who have come to the forums with this question, and there will be an update posted on these forums in regards to this issue. This update will not be posted in individual threads, so keep
    a look out in the forums.

    I hope this helps.

    The infamous ebon flintlock

    It's a rare item that was being given away as a Mixer event prize. However, there was a limited quantity so several people who missed out are upset.

    The infamous ebon flintlock

    Its part of a pack but you can only get the pistol and blunderbuss as exclusive items.

    I think they look cool but honestly i wouldnt be fussed if i had none of them.
  5. HyperVenom523 Win User

    The infamous ebon flintlock

    Because its an exclusive item

    The infamous ebon flintlock

    I'd say it's because of it's rarity, not everyone in the game will get it.
