The Colonial Week was a week long sales event held from the 1st to the 7th of July, 2012.
Players were able to take advantage of several 20% off item, booster, ammo and other consumables sales during the week while two Golden Rock Splitter Events were held during the week. Originally there were to be three events however the first Golden Rock Splitter Event did not activate due to several game bugs, one of which caused FTL missions to be free.
Celebrate Colonial Week from July 1st to July 7th with 20% discounts each day of the week and Golden Rock Splitter Events on July 1st, July 4th, and July 7th. Log in on the 4th for a special treat. Do not miss out!
"Be sure to join us for Colonial Week, July 1st through July 7th. We'll be running the Rock Splitter Event on July 1st, 4th and 7th, along with a number of sales throughout the week. Be sure to login on July 4th for an extra surprise!"
The Golden Rock Splitter Event experienced issues on July 1st where is did not activate. The issue also caused the FTL Fragment mission to be free, so players did not need to spend their FTL Fragmented Coordinates to enter the mission.
The mission was left free to enter for a little over 24 hours until the issue was fixed. The developers decided to allow all players to keep their rewards from repeatedly playing the missions as all players were able to enter and were each eligible to play for free, rather than rollback every players progress over the past day. This game bug is known as the Free FTL Day by several players.
