Liven Up Boring Tuesday’s

edited April 9 in Make It So!
Tuesday’s are dull in STT land. I don’t even run cadet missions cuz who needs more trainers? A few ideas to liven things up. (I tried suggesting a 24 hour event but that wasn’t too popular):
Scavenger Hunt where we have to go around the galaxy collecting certain items
A one day Campaign that doesn’t include doing dailies, but other tasks
Scanners used to scan life signs where we have to go around to the planets to find stranded crew. This one could be a fleet wide effort where each member of a fleet uses their scan at a different planet until someone finds the planet a crew member was stranded on.

    For the record, I still think that's an underrated idea.

    I like the scavenger hunt and scanning ideas. I've always thought scanning could be made a lot more interesting than it is now.

    Tuesday’s are so blah. I hate being STT bored
  • Hating on trainers...what is the world coming to?!?!?! lol

    Agreed. Something needs to be done to liven it up.

  • I agree. Maybe the first and most simple step could be changing the cadet reward from trainers to shuttle supplies like thurs.

    Tue special packs aren't getting too much love lately either. Maybe reduced pk price for only 3-4 crew available including the new card. Or something? 10-15 crew possible with only 1 new is horrible. Wont touch tue pks.

    I love the idea of s treasure hunt but would think this could be arranged into a different event type since many ppl are also getting board with recurring galaxy/shuttles primarily every weekend, mixed or full events. Maybe a hunt could be created and integrated for a phase 1 or 2. To mix up weekend events.

    These two would be awesome!

    I ha e wondered why they don’t do a Tuesday pack offer, such as 5 pulls for $25. I would never waste dilithium on a Tuesday gamble but I might give that offer a shot for a crew member I wanted

    Here we are on boring Tuesday again. DB HELP!!!!
  • Rerun, normally gives a dilithium offer, not a card offer.

    All for this. I do enjoy a breather after weekend events, but some moderate engagement would be welcome, apart from the packs, which I rarely have interest in.

    I was thinking more like the Blues Brothers behind the chicken wire. You can have Wednesday’s for that

  • I would love to see shortened reruns of Megas as the late starters among us never get a chance to see them. Maybe only with threshold and without ranking?

    They could also split the 2 phases to 2 weeks, then the event could still have 4 days over 2 weeks, and we still had 1 full day a week for recovery.

    When the first mega event -- the Borg -- arrived in the game, I had just reached the point of being able to rank high enough to win legendary crew in events. I won all the crew that mega event except Assimilated Torres, whom I failed to nab by just a few ranks (I think I ranked 1003). It was the first time I learned about late cashing in of super rares on a galaxy event and how that can quickly change the rankings at the end. It still stings, but not the way it used to. Later I used my citations to immortalize Assimilated La Forge, Assimilated Janeway, and the Borg Queen (while One has only 3/5 stars so far).

    In any case, even though I got about all that you can get out of that Borg mega event, I'd be perfectly happy for this idea to go forward. It was a great mega event. Probably still my favorite. The newer folks deserve a chance to play it.

    I agree with that. That was a really cool mega but I’m not sure I would want to re-live any month long mega event

    Well, you can at any time, you know, skip an event. ;) People who already have everything out of an event or just do not have the nerve to (re)play it could only play a few rounds to aquire some early threshold rewards or actually ignore the event entirely. People who want to play through each and every event on the other hand would probably have to buy chrons from time to time.

    You are preaching to the choir. I skip many events. I placed around 50,000 the last two galaxies

    While I do not have the answers to "fix" Tuesday, I do think the issue with Tuesday cadets is two-fold: Tuesday cadets offer EASILY the least useful rewards, and they also feature missions with the least useful standard item drops.

    Before anything else be done to address Tuesdays, step 1 needs to be either making the cadet rewards a lot better, or else changing the loot tables for the missions to at lesst let us farm up useful items (like basic medical experiments).

    I remember being new and spending honor on trainers. I don't think the answer is to change Tuesday cadet missions. It would be mean to new players. I can get behind 24-hour condensed event reruns. Maybe even alternate mega event Tuesday reruns with new mega events.

    The typical Tuesday lottery does nothing for me. I got burned trying to get Usurper Lorca and vowed to never waste resources on RNG again. I would spend money on backs before doing that again.

    Other ideas:
    - 2-hour gauntlet cooldown
    - Special Tuesday sign-in bonus
    - Discount packs from events 2 to 3 years past
    - 24 hour gauntlet event where you get VP for matches played and points earned.

    I like the 24 hour gauntlet event. That would be cool. May even have more of an event feel if we were able to increase the crew we use to 10. And use your idea of a two hour cool down. Ladies and gentleman we have just created a gauntlet event of the 24 hour variety. Boring Tuesday problem solved

    I'd be down! Gauntlet is something I enjoy greatly, that sounds like a lot of fun!

    @[10F] Prime Lorca , I can get behind that, that is why I also suggested changing up the rewards to let the rest of us use Tuesdays to farm up useful stuff like holoprograms.

    Oh, I remember that now. Good idea. Put them at the easiest row. Make new players choose between trainers and gear.
