I could wait till Monday to find out but....

If you dont cash in event packs after the offer is over, what happens? Tempted to buy the $9.99 offer for the chrons, but I already have all the event crew immortalized.

    Really? I thought they just disappeared when the event pack did. So, if the event is re-run, or they offer that pack again for some reason, you would still have any pulls from before that you didn't use at that time? You've done this?


    Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

    The event pack stays up until the next weeks event pack goes up. I see no point in buying it but not opening the packs. I also don’t see the point in risking the chance that if they put that pack up again in the future that your pulls will magically reappear with it

    Already have all event crew FF&E. Thought is I could really use 300 chrons right now and no chron offer, so if I buy the $9.99 crew special, for the chrons, I'd rather open the packs as regular packs and not the event pack. Does that make sense?

    Kinda blow away by Meows' response. Seems strange.

    Oh but I know that event pack pulls don't become regular premium pulls after the event pack offer disappears, so if that's what you're hoping, you're out of luck, I'm afraid.

    Oh now I get it. You’re wondering if they turn into regular portal packs. No they do not. Sorry for the confusion

    Not myself, but remember someone posting about it a along time ago...

  • It may not be the case any more, but I doubt anyone wants to volunteer...

  • This specifically happened to me during one an event and @[QH] He-Who-Meows is correct. I had forgotten I had a couple of ten-pulls left and the pack expired. Lucky for me, about half a year later they reran the event and I had those pulls waiting for me. Of course, if this happens, you could probably talk to CS and get them to give you some other equivalent pulls instead, maybe. Depends on who you get really, as a CS helper that is.

    Xool. Thank you @Zann Calcore and others.

    I bout the $9.99 Odo pack, got 2100 honor and level up on Prakesh, the chrons and credits.

    Kinda worth it.
  • My mistakes are your benefits! You’re welcome!
