I was just now doing the Dance party with several other players, as the sun was setting on Risa and fireworks were bursting in the air. In a word, awesome.
You (Cryptic) guys did a fantastic job on this event addition of Risa and I absolutely hope it sticks around.
All of the associated Summer Event activities will stop being available, as will free access for Klingons, but the destination can still be used as a social map by Federation and Fed-Romulan captains.
I hope you will reconsider both of these. I know this is intended to be a special event for summer, but leaving the stores open and certainly the floaters will give people reason to return to Risa and just have fun earning some simple things.
And I say Risa, being close to the Klingon border, with people that openly welcome all, is neutral to all galactic conflicts and continues to extend it's hospitality to all who seek it.
In other words, leave it as a playground for all characters.
I've been going around the new Risa map and its awesome. Thick forests for clandestine meetings, bridges for nice views, et cetera. If only I could use this map for my foundry mission - i have so many ideas for its use....
In fact, would be nice if some of the missions could stay, like the daily race mission, but instead swap out the event reward with the standard fare of 480 dilithium ore.
that's actually a very good idea!! We could even have dailies around the rest of the land mass, which will give resources that could go toward additions to another level of the star-base which is used for recreation!! man the possibilities are endless
I just wanted to post that I love the new map, and I think you guys have really outdone yourselves. I came to this decision after a day of gliding around Risa, having a dance party, looking for some horgh'ans, and then relaxing on the beach at night, as the fireworks lit up the night sky.
