Still no Gamma marks in RA?

If you're going to have a last hurrah before Disco and your RA nerfing, the least you could do...

    Probably marks.

    Please use sensible thread titles, IT'S THE LAW. Karl Urban and/or Sylvester Stallone will be visiting you shortly.

    Correct. Perhaps I should have been more clear.

    The lack of Gamma marks during this Red Alert event makes me want to shove a cordrazine-stuffed epohh into an opening belonging to whoever made that decision.

    Go to the Gamma Quadrant. The Battlezone missions take each take about as long as a Tholian Red Alert and pay more marks.

    Or play Swarm. It's dead easy.

    If my memory is not faulty... current reputation marks are not added to RA and events as optional rewards until a new reputation system is introduced into the game. At which point the "current" marks turns into "old" marks.

    The lukari ones were added faster than normal because gon'cra was borked.

    The gamma waiting zone isn't totally borked, just lots of downtime.

    Good. Swarm lives on for a few more moments then.

    Balls. The lukemarks were in the choiceboxes from the moment they were released.
  • postagepaidpostagepaid Member Posts: 2,775 Arc User
    From the point they were released would be faster.

    New balls please!

    I'd have to agree with starswordc. "Swarm" is actually kinda fun :) if a little boring ... Even on "easy" you can earn 100+ marks, just take a BFAW Boat in and do circles / lazy loops above one of the lanes, it's easier than even the red alerts, and has the chance to earn you far more marks. It also pops fairly consistently, unlike most of the other queues.

    Lukari was added within 36 days of that Reputation's release right into the premier of the shortened Breech Event.

    After Tuesday you will start to see Gamma Marks making it into Choice Marks PVE Queues. Changes to anything Reputation Marks related content was frozen while they worked on the considerable changes to the Reputation System (Tier 6 and all that jazz) for Age of Discovery.

    Swarm Advanced is easy and it pops very quickly. 125 marks without the daily bonus and with a bonus pool active. Without a CD even. It takes less than 2 hours in total to grind up enough marks to take a character from Tier 0 to Tier 6 rep assuming that character is sponsored. No other rep can claim all that outside of Dyson.

    I agree its time to add them to Red Alerts.
    Queue after queue while in the Gamma Quadrant zone map, I keep ending up in a map alone mostly.
    So should the only option left be Swarm? No, add them to Red Alerts already!

    They should chuck all the choicemarks off the RA's already. And everywhere else, too.

    And yes, Swarm and the waiting zone should be the only ways to get gamma marks.
  • postagepaidpostagepaid Member Posts: 2,775 Arc User
    All my non jem characters are sat on close to 1k gamma marks after capping t5 without having done any of the waiting zone drudgery because of the recruit rewards.

    I looked at the rep rewards, weighed up how tedious it'd be to get them and thought nope.

    They really needed to add in some patrols or deep space encounters into the waiting zone to break the monotony of sitting about waiting for others to queue up or click accept. Or had put some effort in to have more than those three encounters from the get go.

    After today they should start to be in Multiple Choice Marks Queues.
