    I wasn't really expecting much as I expect we'll have things to look forward to for CD. There could have been more sales although I am happy to save my money for other things. We all got a nice package for NYE and they threw in a few gold citations in LTOs.

    Last year we had about 100k honor giveaway (granted after some people had a bug). This year we got I think a voyage token and 2k honor. Not even a purple citation. I was hoping we get an annual citation/annual temp achievements for Xmas but it didn't pan out.

    Underwhelmed: Sadly between the Community Rewards glitch, not to mention unrealistic Community Reward goals, all set during the NYE weekend, i personally feel a little let down. I would love to know how STT came up with the calculation to achieve the 10 billion mark...would have been better if they had provided players with a convergence day Quark and not the 2, 3, 4, 10 etc pulls. Also, the Klingon Quark as a reward is a bit stingy seeing as he has been available for pulls for ages, not to mention being available on voyages too.

    I think CD Quark instead of Klingon Quark is the perfect solution here. He's the very definition of a decrepit legendary, but it still would've felt much more special.

    I liked the portal deals. Did the 4 ten packs and did well.
    I did expect more, but then I thought about the lead up to CD. We are really still in the middle of the holidays with CD factored in. If we get a really good CD, I can overlook anything in 2020.

    It is very hard to not have the impression that TP has a problem with either engagement/marketing or something. I'm trying very hard to avoid certain language. I have serious doubt fresh rewards would result in hitting the targets they set. To hit them we need not only motivation, but planning.

    For that reason I'm underwhelmed by the last 3weeks taken as a whole. The CD event needed to be put up at least two weeks before to give people making holiday plans the chance to schedule it in. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm sure many who want to play are too low on chrons. It may have cut into the Mega, but thats a choice they should have had. The company may be hostile to traditional holidays, but their player base is not. Even if you don't name a holiday, if you are planning to drop a 10b community goal you should be doing something to promote activity. Making sure the most people are loging in to know. The CD event and it's (personal opinion, ridiculous) goal and demands just appeared out of no where to a player base who felt/believed TP was on autopilot to hide from the "festive" season. I don't get the impression they cared if the CD event targets could/would be reached. They just seem to have put it up because they felt they had to or something. They follow a formula, shrug and say they did their job.

    For the event itself, they seem to have nerfed it on purpose. The Community rewards drop 2 Quark. If you want to put in minimum effort and walk away with a 4/4 card, all you need to do is rank high enough for what is usually 2 3* cards. Most of the time all people have to do to collect community rewards is make one recipe and wait. They may or may not climb the threshold of it has a useful/new card. With all old cards, why spend the time and resources? I personally want Human Q, but he was removed from rank and community. Why climb for a tied up crew slot? I put in a lot of time and effort to have the resources in game that I do, and I am equal parts annoyed and amused at the people who have insulted me for putting a premium on it rather than just airlock my time/chrons/components because they need me to. I'm willing to wager a huge part of the player base didn't even look at the community rewards tab, that many clicked through the message and have no idea about the different event structure. I've seen the confused comments in UC and on here.

    I don't doubt they have something more planned for the next 30 days. And it may be great. But for the last 30 days I have not felt it. And the CD event feels like something they didn't put much effort into, or one they made because they think failure is motivation. If they have anything similar planned I sincerely hope they take a hard look at their communication with players to give them more time to prep. Events like CD need a better lead time. Multiple failures won't work out well.

    I have not voted as my opinion will be swayed by the official announcement of convergence day and what exactly that 5 year anniversary will entail.

    However, I think that generally speaking the holiday season was disappointing from the perspective to hat I would have loved it if there would have been some LTO’s that were exciting enough to make me bite. But, none were. And in that way, i feel like wrg/tp missed out on sales and ultimately made a bad business decision. But, who knows? Perhaps they did not want people to buy anything before the 5 year anniversary? Hard to say.

    Convergence Day is going to be their big celebration this holiday season, so I'm not too bothered by the lack of a big deal made in December. But to be honest, they've always done sort of a poor job hyping their own stuff. Like, we got a gold citation added to deals for a few weeks, which resulted in a few great deals like $5 cites or 10x10 packs with a cite attached. They could have just sent out a mail or something to let people know and wish everyone a Happy Holidays. Especially with the Adira issue hanging over things during Christmas week.

    Also, I'm really expecting them to roll out the red carpet for the anniversary. Honor sale, slot sale, great deals, all of it, because we've had small mistake after small mistake recently - really simple stuff that shows a lack of care in my opinion. If that's because they're all hands on deck working on this Q1 new feature and a big anniversary blow out, then it can be forgiven. If not, then I'm starting to be concerned a bit.

    Your second paragraph basically captures it for me.

    For me, Im hopeful that its going to be more than just a 5 year anniversary “sale”. Without the new features that have been hinted at, the celebration will pass quickly and I will be back to wondering if this game is worth any more of my time.

    I understand that changes and upgrades require staff time and resources to develop, but you have to spend money to make money and in my opinion, ever since the take over there has not been much of an effort made to create new and exciting content to keep players interested. Those same players have mentioned time and time again on these forums what those changes “should” be.

    So yeah, I am hopeful that they have been listening and have some cool stuff to add to the game.

    I try not to be a Debbie Downer, but the community rewards were not going to be hit. So that has me totally annoyed the fact that the goals were so unrealistic. I spend a good deal of money each month on this game, so right now its all stop for me, because lately there seams to be kind of like ok are we fixing to sunset this thing, and I kind of worried about it.

    The only satisfaction comes from thinking that the return of investment for TP was probably negative this weekend. it was probably cheaper to shutdown the servers and send customer support home than running this terrible event.

    I am sure the tone of comments on this thread will get it closed.

    When those commenting are big spenders, dB/tp is likely to describe any such comments as “individualized expressions of heated debate.”
