That's about the only thing I can think of doing at this point. I realize I should not have bought it to begin with as I am a 1.0 account holder, and from looking at my account page in mog station, I could have simply upgraded my account to the CE without issue. A few others are in the same situation as it seems from the official forums. The CE items was the purpose, and the early access was a perk. But the game's support team is awfully busy to answer these type of support inquiries so that leaves this as my only solution to gain the benefit of obtaining the CE items I wanted to begin with. Lesson learned, and all that.
