Event misshaps - ideas for how DB could say sorry

As this event is plagued by several mistakes i wanted to collect ideas how DB might makes up for it. It is impossible to define how individual players were affected, but everybody was most likely affected somehow thus i propose 5 10x Premium portals in an ingame massage that expires with event end. Thus the also ensure only participants get a sorry present.

    If DB wants to pay my car insurance for the next couple of months, that would be great.

  • HA! You guys are funny. I'd settle for lots of honor/merits...aaaand a nice MLT...mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich ;)

    Especially when the mutton is nice and tender...

    On a more serious note, I would say 5-10 character slots would be about right.

  • I'm an Expedition fan, it is my Jam..
    I want a full expedition before February.
    That would be a better apology to me then anything, short of Restoration of Original Voyages or a couple legendary citations.

    Was sailboat Bev's original run an Expedition ?
    If so, rerun that and I may actually smile about this game again... For a while anyways.

    Anything else.. Meh. Cool.

    I totally just read your post as a poetry slam. Came off well.
  • An honor citation.
  • 300 dilithium would be a nice sorry gift.

    it could fix my game cause right now I'm stuck waiting on support for an answer. I literally can't do ANYTHING.

    I'm missing on all these holiday offers and doubt they will give me the chance to do a late purchase.

    edit: even the forums won't allow me to login on my regular account cause they keep reloading the login nonstop.

  • I have an idea so good, it might even get adopted. So, apology during expedition is to get us 6 tickets to spend north from 2 more hours on Christmas. So, in similar spirit of good will we could shorten faction missions from 3 hours to, say, 1 hour but (and here comes the great part) only during night hours. This way we'll get to play all night instead of boring sleep, who needs that :).

    In all seriousness, handing out 6 extra expedition tickets was the worst decision I have ever seen in this game. I am not one to complain but this is just too much. Please, never again.

    Thanks

    What happens the six tickets if you don't run a single ticket during the event and still have six sitting in your mail?
  • you can save them for non use in a future expedition event

    Which should be scheduled...in 2021 I think, at the current rate.

    I agree but it did mean that I could get the iss Defiant schematics. Can't wait to finish this mega event so I can vault the mirror crew

  • Not sure if serious. You must be new here.

    A little late since I was busy with family time (and not using the 6 extra tickets), but I agree that they really blew this one.

    They could have lowered the extra threshold rewards if they really wanted to give people a shot at them or said "Hey, we really screwed this one up, we'll run this again in January to give people another shot at the higher threshold rewards" because they clearly didn't have the staff available to do anything substantial.

    I'll admit these solutions aren't perfect, either, but at least don't arbitrarily give a boost to the subset of players who had a few extra hours to tap away over the holiday.
  • Yeah. I was planning to spend today's tickets tonight, and to fit those 6 tickets in tomorrow before the event properly ended. Instead I found out late last night I could do NONE of that as it was ending early.

    Between the glut of extra tickets and the event ending early, my planning went all to hell. I went from 600th place to finish 3050th. Nice. You'd best believe I've got a ticket in for it.

    Now if you were able to place high, no doubt from milking those extra tickets, congrats to you, but DB took a node problem and made it into a far bigger placement headache with me. You don't move the goalposts like that.
  • As a kind of add-on, I got a Steam card for Christmas. It's not going to go into STT as I'd planned. I'm that bothered by having poured a lot of time into my early tickets, milking them for 100s, and then being saddled with those disasterous changes, some of which I only came to realize later.

    Just saying, DB.

    This guy knows what he's talking about.
  • For me, the event being shorter was a plus, and for what it’s worth, don’t think that alone would have hurt people terribly badly. But cramming in the 6 extra tickets was kind of like giving every country on Earth six nukes and telling them to go at it.

    lol this made me laugh. agreed here, I just did a single pass of the missions on elite and epic. I value my family time! Cramming in an extra six tickets was not the answer though it meant that I could get the Defiant

    I think the best way to say sorry is to assure us that they will never run an expedition event again. They are the most loatheable use of time. They take the worst part of the game and make you do it over and over and over...

    I did well in this one and got my Crusher, so I'm not salty about missing out or anything, these events are just too expensive in terms of time. There is never a good time for them.
  • Time, and all you get for running the expidition is VP. If they added some other drops as well as the VP. they might not be so bad.

    Not ending it a day early would have been nice.......
