Personally, I'm very happy with the way Cryptic has set up this year's Event. For one thing there really is more of an Event feel to it. I think because there is more than just the single daily race. There are multiple things to
, more than just a the solo race. There's the group race that can be done 4 (?) times an hour as often as you want, there's the awesome snowman fight twice an hour, there's snowpile farming if you want some mind numbing button pressing, there's exploration (accolades), RP fun, ice skating (the new animations are
), creature transformation, snowballing, DOff missions, etc. Not to mention the
of the Wonderland, truely is
you want to. Purely optionally, you
spend dilithium ("time currency") or real life money, and buy Cryptic products which give you an advance of goodies.
You do not have to.
Sure, people will spend money (I've already seen a few Breen ships in play!), and I'm certain they're happy to receive it, but Cryptic is a business. It's ok! Let the game make some money. For those who say they pressure you - Think about this - They also make it easier to
spend money - by unlocking the Holiday Collectibles, the Wonderland zone chat is full of buy/sell/trade offers - You
get anything you want for
This 1000 % YOU DID GOOD CRYPTIC !
Criticize when it's DESERVED, THEY don't deserve it NOW, with this event.
This year you can get all the holiday goodies for FREE for a little bit of effort and time , or if you want to speed things up, spend some cash, but it's NOT necessary.
We wanted more to do in the winter event, WE'VE GOT LOTS of fun things to do this year.
The map is beautiful, like a virtual Christmas card. I only wish that we could have a night map too, all lit up holiday like, maybe next year
This is a HUGE improvement over the past years and it shows that they are REALLY listening !
STO was my secret fun little addiction. I'd spend A LOT of free time and disposable income on it. Have you noticed the change recently? You've got my data, see for yourself. I'll even take a few minutes of my time to explain. All you have to do is ask Cryptic.
