April Weekend Events

ltminnsltminns Member Posts: 12,462 Arc User
We have a Shuttle Weekend and Elachi Alert Weekend coming up in April. Any speculation on whether these will be updated to award Weekend Event Vouchers with a special Prize to be redeemed at the end? This may be an attempt to boost participation in these type Events. The Voucher the last time said 'Gained by completing Weekend Events' NOT the 'Arena of Sompek' Event. It also stated 'submit these vouchers to the Event reputation to earn great rewards'.

    Well, the shuttle weekend is the same shuttle stuff we've had before where we play the shuttle versions of say the Fleet alert events which have 20 people in it.

    Since the Elachi one is still far off (it's only march), we have a while to wait until they announce anything. Chances are the weekend stuff will only apply to the Sompek event for now.

    I hope they won't make another event in such a short time. We've had almost non-stop events since... the Winter event I think?

    It's becoming a bit too much with all these events and special reward weekends following up so fast.

    I mean, I never thought I would say it (I'm used to playing many hours, up to the full weekend without doing much else) but I'm beginning to feel tired of all these events. I might soon need to take a break from the game if they keep adding them.

    And for those who know me well in-game, that's saying a lot, that even I am starting to feel worn out.

    Look at your In-game Calendars.

    Do the Atmospheric Assault Shuttle Mission during the Event. Only need 5 players, it pops quickly, and the Marks payout is much better than Fleet Alerts. With Daily Bonus you can get 275 per run.

    I should have clarified a bit.. I was mostly responding to your question/speculation whether these would have some unique reward like we see with the other events.

    I hope that won't be the case. I can always collect fleet marks at a later time if I needed them, but I'm getting tired of events with unique rewards that you need to do now, or simply miss out on it (or wait until and hope that it gets added to the Phoenix box).

    Vouchers seem to be ubiquitous. So slot Project and fill in at your leisure later. I still have a Voucher or two left over from Sompek.

    The Breach (Original Release) for weekend event puuuuuulease! :smiley:

    I got to say I'm having regrets at going all in for the breach. I'm looking at 9 tokens still to get for all characters and starting to sweat.

    I decided to go with all 14 of my Characters for Breach. 7 will have 5 Voth thingamabobs today and 7, 6. Because of cooldowns I get to do 7 before Dinner and 7 after night TV. All Characters are taking Lukari Marks for leveling that up after they get Sponsorship in a few days.

    My newest Character does it twice a day as she leveled up nine Reputations a few weeks ago and can use the second run for Marks to fill in Reps as needed.

    I am starting to get a bit burned out but will persist at this stage. I guess I could stagger some a few days, but who knows. Might just want to get it over with. :/

    I got to say I'm having regrets at going all in for the breach. I'm looking at 9 tokens still to get for all characters and starting to sweat.

    Last time they ran the breach I started it on all my characters. I burnt out before the end and only completed it on a couple of them. I didn't even need the thing they were giving away with the dil and marks. It actually paid off this time. The previous voth tokens were never removed (and I didn't add them to the project). They only removed the icon (they became white boxes in my bank). They worked for this project. So, I have 1 character that already has the new melee weapon (good dam but very slow, IMO) and all but 1 will be done by thursday. So, don't sweat it. Likely the same thing will happen and, if you don't finish on all of them, you won't necessarily be losing anything. And, if you already added tokens to the project, the next breach event will likely give the same token to finish.

    I would like to see more of the Arena of Sompek type events. It would be nice to get a little minor reward once in a while for a weekend thing. I honestly don't think they will change older events to the Sompek style. I would also love to be wrong on this.

    Yeah, no, April Fools to you too. You should probably see the Ship's Counselor if you are hearing voices. You don't see dead people too, do you? :)

    The 'idiotic endless grinds' keep up the Login Metrics©® between Lockbox Events. New Lockbox rollouts is when we get a new Featured Episode these days. ;)

    Yes, that is the good thing about these 21-day Events. The Tokens/Vouchers or whatever they give out are good for the next Event and are applicable to older iterations of that Event if you have the Project slotted.

    The last Breech Event I only sent in about five of my Characters to begin with.
