What would you like to conclude the Lohlunat festival?

Less than a week left to the Lohlunat festival; how would you like Cryptic to conclude it? I tried to cover the usual popular requests but just in case feel free to make suggestions in comments. (Note, I was limited to 10 options, and I had to merge some options, and remove the "I'm a greedy Ferengi, I want all of the above!")

    Events normally just end without a special conclusion so that's what I expect to happen.

    If I'm wrong, it won't be Lobi since that was the replacement for the ship that most people already had.

    It's unlikely to be a giveaway, that hasn't happened before.

    Maybe a (something) weekend, but that's just normal weekending not tied to the summer event.

    I'm of similar mind-set. I don't ever remember some special conclusion to the Summer or Winter events so I won't expect any. If anything does happen that will just make it that much better. I voted for the one-time-account-wide 200 Lobi bundle purchased by Lohlunats since similar has been done before for the Winter event, perhaps that would be easier to implement. The "trolling" approach would be a giveaway of (5) Keys lol

    Agree with cold. Since there's a 'Nothing' choice I didn't vote.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Lobi is always nice to have.

    There's not much in the store that I care about. The reputation vanity shields look much better imo, the clothing is not interesting to me because it cannot be worn outside Risa anyway and the kit abilities are fun to try on one toon, but that's it really as I try to have unique ground builds for all my characters.


    I only need a small stock of favours in case I'd ever wanted to buy a Tribble for a new toon, or a pet. So buying lobi with the rest of my favours, would be a good deal.

    Well, a special sale isn't really an event like the Risa event of course.

    I mean, I wouldn't call the release of a new C-store ship (and accompanying sales) an event.

    So imo, it wouldn't really be stacking events. It'd simply be adding a nice additional opportunity to buy some stuff, in some cases with the stuff players have collected anyway.

    Honestly, I'd still prefer to get a real life shuttle.

    But I've kind of given up on that.

    The ability to ban anyone in Zone Chat who insists on discussing 21st-century politics. I don't care whether I agree with you or not, I'm out here trying to pretend to fly my spaceship around the galaxy in the 25th century, and those arguments are about as meaningful to me as interrupting a Call of Duty game to debate whether the Medicis have too much influence over the Republic of Florence.

    Discussing?

    It's usually just throwing in some statements and watch the fires burn.

    I doubt that the people who make most of the noise in ESD zone chat have any idea what a 'discussion' entails.

    The title say: "What would you like to conclude the festival?" and not "How do you think Cryptic will actually conclude it?". I made this poll trying to gauge what people would like.

    Oh, OK.

    A free Federation Legendary Ship bundle then.

    Which is why I keep Zone Chat turned OFF honestly. Even when people try and ask honest questions it gets buried under trolling and political BS.
    And oh boy do I have a few stories about some of the things I've seen in Zone Chat. If anyone is interested... we can probably just do a PM thread to compare notes.

    I think they have learned their lesson about the marks weekends occurring during either the winter or summer events. They had them during the last 2 and you could actually make good old days amounts of marks - so I wouldn't expect to ever see them again (part of the reason to get rid of the calendar also).

    I would like... nothing. Because why do we need a special bonus to end the event period? It makes no sense to me. The event itself (with it's various things to do & buy, and the ship, and the bonus Dil once you have the ship) is a "bonus", so why would there be another bonus to celebrate the end of the bonus? /confused

    It just comes across as excessive greed to me.

    If you wanted to see what people wanted, why a poll that limits their choices? A better poll would be "do you want an additional reward (yes/no) post what you want with reply".

    Then I can vote yes, ignore the lame options you presented, and suggest an all Gorn in Speedos conga line. (Rawr <3 )

    Yes it is an event. Dilithium/refining/lohlunat favor/mark bonuses would be a stacking event. I had enough of event after event during an event. No more.

    I would settle for an Upgrade Weekend. I've got 3 alts that are waiting for it now. I think it's been over two months since the last one?

    Given how the cost of Summer things in Favors is ridiculous compared to the cost in Ornaments for Winter things, the 200 Lobi Bundle in the Summer Store would be astronomical in price.

    Grassroot players are fed up with incessant grinds being added non stop, as it forces up to run them or suffer a penalty down the road. However, grassroot players don't mind having bonus and discounts their way from time to time.

    Feel like this was meant to be some kind of backdoor insult towards certain people...
    It is sooo enlightening to read the post history of people whining against my idea...

    Not winning you any favors with that jab at people who disagree as it paints you as mocking them and of the mindset of "your opinion does not matter to me".

    Event Fatigue is a thing. And while some people are less diplomatic about their opinion on the subject, the fact remains that they give those opinions with a good reason.
