Are The Purchasable Compensation Crates Permanent Or Temporary?

I got the 100 limited compensation crate option, have 79 left, that you can buy 2000 credits for 40 crafting parts to convert into a skill point. I'm just wondering if this so something temporary or permanent until I use them all up?

    For not getting awarded credits for the duplicate star cards.

    I member those days, i raged hard. Personally I feel they might as well just give us the 100 skill points since I already paid for the skin so its gonna take some time and didn't know this would be a thing but still this does at least compensate for what happened and as long as i can use all 100 of them, I'll be fine with that.

    Compensation Crate system gone now?? If u left in untouched do they just take it away after x amount of time?
  • Mine was gone today when I logged in as well. Posted in the Bug Reports thread also, no response yet. I had 52 left. ONLY thing I asked for when they gave it to us was to let us know when they were taking it away. Hopefully it's just a bug and will be corrected once the update drops tomorrow.
  • And now we have confirmation that the crates have been removed intentionally, with no prior warning. I just do not understand how these guys are still in business.

    For the love of god, WHY?? If they want to get rid of them, fine... But why would they do this without warning? I still had 83 left and had I known there was a time limit I would have put aside Fortnite for three weeks and raised some hell...

    If this is true, then I've officially gotten the royal screwjob **THREE** times now since the great crossover...

    Hey EA, I'll let you in on a secret -- I was part of the .0000012% of the playerbase that didn't have any real gripes with the game at release... Is it too late to hit a big reset button on the whole thing?

    So all that's left for me now is Blast/Extraction and Starfighter assault... Because there's no point whatsoever in continuing to let my Level 12 heroes get slaughtered by purp'd out enemies if I'm not getting crafting part crates for my trouble...

    But I'm not going to completely freak out yet, since knowing these folks their decision can reverse at the drop of a hat...
    EA/DICE still owe me 83 crafting part crates, with interest...
  • Hoping for a positive outcome but hope in this game is turning in to a bad word.

    ya i was mad about this as well. this is suppose to be a compensation crate for getting screwed over with those cards not rewarding credits to certain players back in the beginning and this was an okay compensation but now its gone and i didnt even get to use up all mine because i was waiting after the dlc to see what would be worth buying and turned out only the new falcon but now i can't buy any so that really frustrates me. WTF Dice? you give us a compensation crate then take it away.
  • Hopefully we get some kind of response this morning along the lines of, "Our bad, we'll give it back for a week so you do what you need to, but it's getting removed for good after that." Honestly, simple communication would have made this a non-issue.

    ya they need to allow us to use that up. that's not cool with no heads up. i had quiet a few as well and i want to use them up. the whole thing is like a big FU. its like "hey were sorry for all those months you got screwed over, here is some compensation for all that lost time... and its gone."

    I cant stand these people I've been on the phone with them everyday (since 6/17/18) after work I spend my time with some quote on quote specialist (Sure you are kid) trying to figure where my crates are... THEY DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT COMP CRATES ARE BRO " Umm sir we can not find or locate you're crates ….FU OUT OF HERE. Hate …..Hate Them let the anger fuel your power" Im ready to force choke these people.

    Hey everyone,

    Just wanted to spend a few minutes talking about the compensation crate that went live recently.

    As I’m sure you’re aware, there was an issue where players were unable to scrap duplicate star cards that they received. Later on, we ran some scripts on the back end that would convert all the stored duplicate cards into credits.

    This worked well but for some players, they wanted to level their characters and credits would not allow this.
    We then brought a system into the game that would allow you to trade 40 crafting parts for one skill part. This would allow players who received the large amount of credits from the duplicate trade-in to purchase crates of crafting points.
    We recently released this compensation crate.

    There was however, some uncharted territory to go along with this. We did not know how an overabundance of parts would react on an account. The last thing we wanted was to have hundreds of them, sat there with nothing to spend them on. This is why we limited it to 100 crates.

    The crate was released, and everything was going fine, but we then found a problem where parts were breaking account history. As a result, there was a risk of them causing corruption in the future, so we had to begin the process of removing them from the game.

    Looking at our in-game telemetry we can see that the vast majority of players were able to purchase their crates.
    Throughout all the planning that went into the compensation crate, one of the fundamental things that was missed was the announcement of when it would be ending. We’re currently working through our post mortem and this will be an area of focus for us.

    We are looking at an alternative, and safe way to convert credits into levelling up characters. Once we have more information on this we will let you know.
  • AHAHAHAHA! Then the people just getting into this game, who don't have a clue as to what has gone down in the past several months, have the audacity to ask us why the veterans complain. This is prime example.

    thank god. i really hope they bring this back. it should be a 100 flat skill points. no expiration date. just make it easier, cut out the middle man of crafting parts that we want to kill off anyways and just make it a skill point for 2000 credits and we get to use the comp crates for the small percentage that got hit and then we just pay and be done with it and then that will be a huge boost and keep it like that. this will help us, the few that got affected. to have a better head start on the 4 new heroes and the current new hero starship and possible other new hero starships and heroes. we do deserve that after the 6-8 months of hell we went through and fell behind. give us this so we get a head start. the best way to go is to make it so out skill points actually level up the character/ship with it. that way we won't be getting the 1000 credits per level up as a con to make up for the pro but give us a better start off. it will also make it aware to the other gamers, wondering why there are purple'd out new heroes exactly what it felt like for us for that first 6-8 months lol
