Operation Earth Shuttles - Thank You

I just wanted to give a big Thank You to DB for the shuttles for the faction portion of Operation Earth. It was such a pleasant surprise to see most shuttles with 3 seats along with a 2 seater and 4 seater and NO 5 SEATERS!!! Also, it's nice to get some matching skills on the seats. You've also given us a wide variety of skills between all shuttles. On your 3 seat shuttles, there are missions that have 2 of the seats with a matching skill representing all 6 of the skills. What a nice gift and it cost you guys nothing to do it!

I sincerely hope this is the style for faction events (and the faction portion of hybrids) going into 2018.

    I'm glad they mix it up and make even shuttle events somewhat unique event to event.

    If only they could remember that the whole complete point of a Faction Event is MORE THAN ONE FACTION competing with EACH OTHER.......


    Two times in a row that there is only ONE Faction in the Faction Event.......

    I would agree. I would much prefer factions events with multiple faction choices to allow some leeway in farming faction exclusive items.
  • I would kill for a maquis or section 31 faction event. One faction I am probably never going to be hurting for items with is federation.

    You know, when the game launched faction events only had one faction. It was about doing missions for that faction. You can't really say the whole point is factions competing with each other.

    And this is not a faction event, it's a hybrid event. I don't think I've ever seen a hybrid event with multiple factions in the shuttle portion.

    Just admit that what you really want are 30 missions at the start for the full kickstart and only 10 missions per faction to reduce cycling through them.

    What I want would be the Faction Event part of it to at least give us a winning Faction......


    And, I am not complaining that we have THREE Faction Events in a four week Mega-Event, as much as I hate Faction Events. But, at least have the Faction Event part pay out the one good thing from them.......


    And, I have no idea what the thirty missions thing is even about. 'Lighten me?

    Except for the need for lots of 0* ancient film and orchids I would somewhat agree. The past two weeks has allowed me to stock up on these two items and I think I am finally good on the orchids to get the remaining crew I currently have FE. Ancient film on the other hand is still in question as humans seem to like there whiskey.

    Between Section 31 and Maquis I would pick Section 31 as they have the most needed faction required items in the game for characters. Section 31 has holoprograms, security codes, case files, covert contacts and tactical alerts. Some of these are easier to come by than others. Right now I am using my five per day replicating for 0* and 1* holoprograms building up a supply for when I need them again.

    It is a way of hitting 4000 vp shuttles in 12 hours or less depending on shuttle boosts you have on hand and a few other tactics that you use.

    I wouldn't *kill* for it, but I agree that those factions would be good for an event.
  • As much as I really want to agree with the praise given here, I've got to stand up and say this is typically the right thing at the wrong time.

    At the start of the mega event or any other normal faction/hybrid event, this would have been so welcome and a step in the right direction. But right now, as the last event of a faction where we've already picked up a multitude (and hopefully levelled) of event crew, this is actually detrimental. I now have a whole bunch of event crew that I spent a lot of time and energy to level up that I can't use because there aren't enough slots for them.

    I do hope more factions will use these sorts of missions but I'm here craving double stat slots and "and" slots to compliment the event crew I have
  • I see almost no difference in win percentage. I think they just adjusted it to fit so no advantage was gained.

    I usually hit +80% on 4 shuttles at 4K. That’s exactly where I’m at now. I have a plethora of bonus crew but off the top of my head I’m running.

    Wish it was pure faction ;)
