    It seems to be bugged for me, I did the event well over 20hours and didn't even get the voucher this time.

    Edit: Turns out leaving before claiming the reward caused it to not happen, how odd.


    Not really. If you win a prize at a raffle and leave before picking it up, the same thing happens.
    Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    The queues usually let you claim rewards after leaving when completing them unlike real raffles. ;)

    I completed the queue and pressed the leave button before claiming the reward, the reward selector should've still showed up as soon as I beamed back into my previous location but it did not this time and I got nothing

    2 failed pugs and I am ready to throw in the towel. Don't have the time on this holiday weekend to keep wasting time failing to get the voucher. And I was doing half the damage and all the healing! Back to playing other games as I wait for my Borg Lockbox ;-)

    BTW regardless of my very low performance here noted on other topics or my suggestions elsewhere.
    I personally wish it to be a permanent queue for challenge fun and (hopefuly later added) accolades :)

    Thank you for the fun event :)

    Well after some time out of the game, I see pugs are just as bad as before. No chance I'll get this one, so hopefully it'll cycle back at some stage.
    If you've come to the forums to complain about the AFK system, it's known to be bugged at the moment.
  • themadprofessor#9835 themadprofessor Member Posts: 1,203 Arc User
    With the new queue matching system, it puts you together with people of comparable build strengths, so if you want a good run, do it on your best build.

    Also on most PUGs I've noticed most people are too busy blowing stuff up to take the aggro, or heal the KM. If you have a tank with a heal, you will extend your groups life.

    The Prototype Dreadnought it perfect for this. This is what she's like without fleet stuff.

    She's a tank, she can pour out the damage, she has pets, and she's got the protomatter console.

    Ok, what is the deal with Kobayashi Maru.... Ran the event on 14 different toons on Thursday 6/29 around 5 PM CDT. Did not receive a single voucher. Just ran on three toons today ... only received voucher on one toon ... at this rate I will not have enough time to gain the equipment. Any thoughts?

    How do you claim the weapons on other characters after one of them has completed the event project? They're not in the Reclaim tab in the Dilithium store, and the event can't be started by other characters without more vouchers.

    it's in the same place as the summer/winter ships. in the event rep store.


    if I stop posting it doesn't make you right it. just means I don't have enough rum to continue interacting with you.

    Each Account can get only ONE Voucher per day.

    You need to make it past Round THREE to get one.

    The Tokens are ACCOUNT Bound.

    Only ONE CHARACTER need slot the THREE Vouchers into the Project.

    The Tokens can be earned by ANY Character on the Account.

    The Account Unlock is in the EVENT REPUTATION STORE under the Account Reclaim Tab.

    Excess Weekend Event Vouchers earned here (or Sompek Arena for that matter) can be stored and used in ANY future Weekend Event.

    Yes I misunderstand the level of competency of a pug group 3 times. I will not do that again and will just spend my time doing other games or other content.

    I got my Account rewards with one of my alts who only made it to Round 5. With my main alt whom I've had since 2013, I was fortunate enough to last to 20 until the Maru died.

    At least one of my toons is tough enough for the test.

    I really hope you Devs bring back the test with just enough time to get the other alts up to snuff.

    yes i like the idea of a whining license.


    I guess the mission is okay. some will like it more. i liked the ground one better. Why? LAG.

    all of these interesting effects and hazards are swell. i would like to enjoy them. but it's impossible with the lag. Yes, they improved it some with their fix (and i think increased the difficulty) but not enough to make it really enjoyable for me.

    At least in Sompek you didn't have a braindead Freighter Captain that continually puts itself into Harm's Way. :)

    I'm not sure how it's possible to fail before round 3. My last run had someone who just sat there AFK the entire time and someone targeting one ship at a time and we STILL got to round 4. I wasn't even on a properly geared character, my phaser user is still rocking MK 12 gear on a few ships, and still did my fair share of damage just pressing BOFF skills whenever I felt like it. If your pug group failed that hard then you got match made with people in all white Mk X gear who had no boff powers slotted because that's what you were using as well. It only gets hard once you pass round 3 and they start doing all the weird combo's, like the Doomsday Machine just randomly spawning for a round that you have to avoid.

    It's possible. I am using Mk XIV gear and most of my gear is epic. I did 6 runs. (2 finish time event, 1 till 10 round and the other 3 only to round 3 so did not get voucher) The 3 failed round no one was healing except me and they were killing too slow. I used protomatter to heal but as soon as Kobayashi Maru moved out of range it dies really fast. You will fail if you are the only one healing.

    The rewards from the event are UR MKXII but no madifiers what so ever? Did I miss something??

    And yeah at times the que maching for the event seems screwed..Your paired with players that like to forget the maru and so am basically left to defend and heal it and basically stay stuck with it where ever it goes..Most of the time the other players are getting blown to bits atleast twice per round and I'm just using UR MKXII fleet weapons and some other stuff that are MKXIII..

    it is certainly possible to lose in the first 3 rounds. it depends where the ship wanders and what it wanders into. a doomsday device for example. today i saw some really good healers save the ship in round 3 when it was down to 20% and would have been killed before finishing the round. Not many players are able and aware enough to heal like that. after the recent sci nerf i have almost no healing at all and barely fix the ship 1%.

    I failed it during round 3 once out of 6 PUG runs. I guess that makes it like Russian Roulette. It was enjoyable overall, but lag from everything made it annoying at times.
    This is an MMO, not a Star Trek episode simulator. That would make for a terrible game.

    My point was that getting to a high level requires an entire team of people capable of soloing the first few waves. If you can't do that, then it's not just your team that sucks.

    I liked Extend Shields, it's not a true heal but rather a way to prevent damage.
