    Does anyone else feel like the faction mission writing quality has dropped off for the last couple events?

    I confess that I haven't read the dialog yet for these missions - I usually get around to that later in the event when there's nothing much to do but grind 'em out. But I did think the mission names were reasonably clever this time around - lots of puns, wordplay, etc.

    I noticed that, too. Looks like someone at DB is having a little fun. :smiley:

    I don't really set specific crew to specific shuttles. I switch it up all he time. I was hoping for a med and eng seat, but Imprinted Archer gets good use on the eng seats or of I run one of the ones with med. I'm getting all 4 shuttles above 80 unboosted, most above 90. I apparently have a good set of event crew this time because even with a tight work schedule the past two days I've managed to keep pace. I wish I had RAF O'Brien. I do have pretty much all the 4* bonus crew immortalized. I suspect this event will have a lower finishing VP than the last.

    I didn't even get 900 Honor! Just 700 Honor and a third star for La Borge. :(

    Um. A third star for Assimilated LaForge! You should be doing a happy dance.

    Ha ha, I think I'd be more than happy with that.

    Unfortunately statistically only every 8th pack is that kind. That is far from exciting.

    I really wished they exchanged the threshold's (and Community reward) portal pack with a current event pack or (even better) with the next event's pack which would have to be finished a couple of days earlier though. If they did I would always clear the threshold. Currently I do not for Galaxies as there is too few incentive for me to go through that much tap-tap-tap and chrons.

    Last week's threshold top prize gave me Away Team Bumham, so it's definitely a step down this week. I'm thrilled, of course, but I didn't want to make Geb'sSonOsiris feel too bad, so I thought I'd write it more empathetically.

    I had worse luck with this week's event packs... after the 390fest last week, I had enough on day one and got a useless O'Brien for the airlock. Yesterday I scraped together enough for a second try at getting that Tyler super-rare fully fused, but got a second star for Archer instead. :s

    Had my best finish in an event. I was hanging around the 300s so I just decided to push for the top 100 achievement. I don’t generally push hard in factions so I had a bunch of boosts etc.

    Congratulations. That is an achievement I've not made. You really deserve more.
  • I hate that the "top prize" in thresholds is always nothing more than 900 honour.

    I once had a pack with no schematics and a straight drop of a superfluous 4*, so I got 1100 honor.

    I finished 2774, just a shade over threshold.

    Thanks! At this point in the game I’d be inclined to agree with you. As discussed to the end of the universe on these forums, the rewards need a revamp. Seems at least two Rikers would be fair for top 100.

    I'd love to see that, but I'd also be concerned about unintended consequences. I'd certainly push harder for top 100 if it came with a second 5*. I'm pretty sure there will be at least a couple hundred people in the same boat(if not more). Next thing you know the VP required for top 100 would be just as difficult as the VP for top 25 now.

    But with four times as many chances to be happy with the result. It would absolutely be worth changing.

    The concern is understandable - look what happened when getting a gold went from a top-1000 finish to a top-1500 finish. Still, we found a balance that works for most people. I am confident much would be the same if the rewards for the top 100 or 500 ranks were rearranged.

    If the legendary prize wasn’t one that people were really excited about (Desert Archer for example) it would make it easier for players who usually can’t compete to make a push and get multiple copies of a legendary. I’d be in favor of that.
  • I don't see the issue with increased competition. Ideally, I'd still like to see scaled rewards, a la the Arena.
  • I wonder if it would drive sales of rental shuttles, boosts, and DYC offers...
