    As long as the 15-minute countdown can be sped up by actually doing good in this mission I don't think I'll join in this time. MUI is just too hard to stand pig-2.gif ("Firing plasma lance...")​​

    check this fragment:
    Once a day, players will be awarded a Multidimensional Transporter for playing this event. By turning in 14 Transporters through the Reputation System, players will receive 50,000 Dilithium Ore, 500 Fleet Marks, 250 Marks of Your Choice and a brand new unique ground weapon, Mirror Universe Phaser Dual Pistols. Completing this project on any character will unlock this new weapon for all characters across your account, and additionally the other characters can still complete the project to receive the Marks and Dilithium Ore.
    Now i must do this... looks like the reward is account unlock B)
    That's a very important change.

    Mirror Invasion again? Well, I guess this really does mean that you guys are revamping the Crystalline Entity (again) since you probably don't like it that players are completing it so quickly and easily now. So I doubt you would like putting it in again as an event until you can make players take more time play the way you want them to play enjoy the experience more.


    I initially put in a big old rant about the unique item was not an account unlock. THEN I finished reading the blog and saw it is indeed an account unlock. Thank you for that, it is something many players have been asking for for quite sometime. And because of that, I will now run this across a few extra alts just to improve your metrics. :)

      I audibly groaned when I saw the news about a Mirror event.

      Depends on what the stats are for the phaser dual pistols. They aren't going to be just basic Phaser Dual Pistols.

      Ugh, the worst event grind is back. At least they finally made the item reward an account unlock.

      I hope so. Unless they fix this event, it's not worth hitting Spacebar. ;)

      I want a bolt-beam pistol combo that fires wide-beams as expose attack and compression bolts as exploit attacks... BTW, when is the Sompek shoota going to be made account-wide?

      The account unlock is a very welcome change! I hope it stays that way for all of the events in the future.

      They had better streamline this like they did The Breach, otherwise it's 3 hours a day for 10 toons!

      Oh my god thank you so much for making this an account unlock. If any existing event needed this, it was Mirror Invasion. Seriously, this is an awesome change for the better.

      Dear Devs: I enjoyed the Legacy of Romulus expansion much more than the Delta Rising expansion. .

      They'll probably have a unique model . proc or both. If you don't want them, don't do the event. I mean you can say the same about most of the stuff from these events. Only maybe the Crystalline Spike and the Cochrane Shotgun are really very good.
      This is an MMO, not a Star Trek episode simulator. That would make for a terrible game.

      For all those touting perma-death, friendly fire, and the like to make the game 'challenging' and more 'realistic', let's make it more realistic by having consequences for not following your orders and defend the station. Anyone taking their ship out to the Oort Cloud to party while the station is under attack in the first phase is guilty of dereliction of duty.

      To be challenging and realistic, the Character will be reduced in rank three levels. They will not be able to use any ships, equipment, or weapons at their previous rank until they have reacheived that rank. You will not be able to earn and accumulate new Dilitium or EC until you reachieve your original rank (simulates forfeiture of pay).

      There's your realism.

      So you do a SPACE mission to get GROUND reward like phser pistols. I find that strange. Would have expected some nice and very usefull console for my space ship as reward, for having to repeat a space missons a couple of days. At least some great for a space ship.

      So why some ground weapon as reward? And in such case why then not a ground PVE to earn it?

      Glad it’s an account unlock. My plate is full of stuff to grind.
