I got the bug to kick the tires on my ships again. That happens every once in a while. I deliberately stay away to avoid burn out. But I got the itch to go through my fleet and see if there was anything I might want to swap for. I’ve decided they aren’t getting any more of my cash so straight up swaps or melt/upgrade are my current options.
I wasn’t feeling my Vanguard Warden anymore. I have a Hurricane and Banu Defender as my combat ships (A heavy and a light). So the Vanguard was the candidate. Ship upgrades showed a straight up swap… Vanguard for the Apollo Triage. I don’t have a “rescue” ship… the Apollo looks pretty damn good. Go to try out the swap and it say the Vanguard isn’t available. I try again… same thing. For giggles I try the upgrade to the Constellation Aquila… that’s fine.
Curious… I contacted Concierge Support. Apparently they no long allow zero dollar swaps. Very disappointed. I can only upgrade if I spend more. The support agent said “You could always melt and buy/rebuy a ship”. Yup… that I know. I’ve done that probably over a dozen times over the past five years.
Not very happy with them at the moment.
