    A mid week event? WAY cool!!! I’m super excited! And I like the mystery involved in what it is and what we will be doing. Let’s do it!!

    Something new can never do harm. Whatever it is, count me in!

    This is my exact thoughts put into words before I had time to even think them.

    Will we be getting a "Event Briefing" like the one we get for Thursday Events? Or is it going to surprise stuff?

    Like an eighth Wild West Crew.......

    Adds a bit of spice to boring Tuesdays ;) would be nice to know a little more info but I guess I have to sip my Guinness and wait.

    Adds something besides the Tuesday Packs, which so often now have 4* instead of 5* New Crew, since people are complacent......

    I am glad you are thinking of ways to keep the game fresh and look forward to the mini event "mystery"...
  • Banjo1012Banjo1012 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Looks like we will be told a half hour beforehand what the deal is and we will have that half hour to figure out what we are doing. Sounds very intriguing!

    I would have preferred a 24h Mini Event from Tuesday till Wednesday.

    Starting right 30 mins after the current event ends is not great, imho.
    If this becomes the new standard, players will burn out fast and DB losing money.

    Depends on how it works. It could be something that doesn't necessarily require a huge time commitment, but has a large window to ensure completion.

    Fair point. Maybe there are no Individual leaderboards and ranked rewards.

    It should be good.

    Indeed. If the event is neutral or a way to set up resources for the next event that would be cool. But events are already draining half the time. I'd rather not be tempted by something else to drain my resources when I need to build for the next full event.

    Why not, it has the potential to be interesting but the pessimist in me can't ignore that they may be testing how acceptable nerfed rewards for skirmishes are. :D

    Is the Decoy Kira Flashback Galaxy? Extra Chronitons might be nice.

    I'm hoping it is something similar to the McCoy thing ... where the event is linked to community achievements or something like personal achievements during that timeframe ...
    I'm okay with doing some "extra" stuff on those days, but ...

    If I have to rank against players to get something from Monday to Wednesday, that's just basically adding an "extra" phase to the current event ... that would mean it would basically be a continual event schedule each day of the week ... I can't do that kind of commitment stuff to a game, I already find it hard to do well in regular events due to IRL activities limiting my game time severely.

    But I'm getting ahead of myself ... as long as it isn't a massive commitment I'm fine with it.

    As soon as 11:00 Monday hits, I’m bored. I would LOVE to have that boredom cured!

    I will wait to see what this looks like for a final opinion.

    I would love to see something with threshold style rewards.

    I hope there are no rank rewards that will make Mon-Wed as competitive as Thur-Mon.

    I am intrigued by the concept and the mystery behind the event...then I remember that I will be buried in work for most of Monday and Tuesday, so I don’t know how much I will actually be able to participate.

    Shan, should we keep our crew at home beforehand? Voyages, shuttles? Or will it be like Gauntlet or Skirmish where the crew may be wherever?

    The announcement specifically mentions no featured crew, so looking more like Skirmish in that approach.
