    I'm not chasing the rewards hard yet. I'm holding off a bit so I can fuse and level him for next week's objective event.

    Those gauntlet rounds are a lot for me. I've done more gauntlet in the past two days than the previous six months. I realize we have a long time, but still.

    I decided to not stress it, once I finished the other Objective Event requirements. Definitely not a time crunch on that one.

    yeah something like 5 or 6 days for the gauntlet for me. all in all this one feels appropriately like a gift with a little work. no shuttles - so hooray from me!

    As an aside, bit disappointed with another Dip/Com/Sec. This one is at least partially on us though, for picking Saru!

    Mine has been making a lot of Shuttles and is a Star away from Immortalized.

    I'm at 3 stars (working on gauntlet copy) and is finding work, but isn't really the area I need upgrades in.

    Very easy month for 3* Legend.
    I'm at 70 gauntlet battles
    Almost 90 level up crew
    Almost 250 ship battles

    Not yet doing the upgrade of him until I can fuse it.

  • All I've got left are the Gauntlet bouts. Easy pace on those. I'm certain to finish without the allotted period. He's already making himself useful on shuttle missions. Diplomacy is one of my better skills. I didn't realize what a gap there was in my roster between Professor Sato and my previous number two until Saru took the number two Diplomacy base slot before he was FF.

    I'm at 66% of 200 for the final Gauntlet Task. So, 68 to go?

  • As I level Saru towards the "Level Returning Saru 90 times", I note that, to gain the achievement, you have to level him to 91 (at level 90, I am at 98.9% of the goal). This makes sense arithmetically. The only problem is that the reward for that achievement (Saru's Uniform legendary) is needed to get past level 90, as I need to fully equip him at level 90 to get him past that point. In essence, I can't use this reward as he will be fully equipped by the time I receive it. (This also happened with Rescued Burnham's epic phaser reward).

    Should the threshold be 89 level-ups? So that the reward can be used to level Saru further (rather than being turned into replicator rations, which I need like a hole in the head)? Or are my calculations off in some way (not impossible, I assure you)?

    Yes, it is, but both times before I get the reward (as I don't get the reward till Saru hits 91). It still ends up being useless, except as replicator ration fodder, no?

    You can level him past 90 without giving him that final uniform.

    No. Once you get him to 91, you get the Uniform. Which he still needs to be Fully Equipped.

    Aha. Hence my disclosure at the start of my comments that my math could be wrong. Much obliged for the responses!

    A lot of the 5* stuff for that first slot gets used twice. It can throw you off.

  • I've completed the first milestone of Level Up Crew and the second of Shenzou ship battles, but I'm not even done with 50 Gauntlet rounds yet.
  • I just finished a couple days ago. The Gauntlet was the real slog.

    A little trick I did with Resistance Burnham was to level my 2nd, 3rd and 4th copies up to 10 *before* merging. Those level-ups count towards the goal, which I finished while my "main" Burnham was somewhere in the 60-70 range.

    Finished it today. :)

    Bit of feedback - it would be nice if the "reward for participating" could be immediately claimable (or sent to our inboxes) once the event is completed by the individual player. It's one thing if someone doesn't fully complete the event to have to wait for the overall event to end, but for those of us that complete it early, it would be great just to close it out. Instead, it'll be 21 days (as of this writing) before the early finishers get the 200 honor reward. Maybe this isn't a major issue, but thought I'd share anyway.

    I just finished a couple days ago. The Gauntlet was the real slog.

    Me, too. Just before the event. The gauntlet stuff was hard. Everything else was easy for me where I am in the game and how I play. I realize I could have taken time and made it much easier, but I saw the finish line and wanted to reach it.

    It was just something I wanted out of the way. Sure, plenty of time left on the clock, but if I put off the grind, I might never get back to it...

    I think I need 35 more gauntlet rounds then I'm done.

  • 95 Gauntlet bouts and making good progress at an easy pace. Might finish him next week sometime.

    Finished last Friday. Mostly just did my usual gauntlet activity although after a couple levels of fatigue I would just tank the whole crew to get some extra points.

    Ended up getting my 3rd Balok and a 4/5 Saru had decent enough stats that I used him in the faction event.
