Why do you need to play it for 1000 hours? That is virtually 24/7 until the event ends.

I must admit, respect points to Trendy for laying down the law like that.

I need 50 runs to collect enough photos to get both breen ships (20hrs x 50 runs = 1000 hours)

This means that players that can participate in the event 25 times during the 35+ days that the Winter Event will be active will have earned their way to a FREE Starship!
since when does 35+ =25?

you only need to RUN the event 25 times to get the ship without purchasing photos.

They need to pre-extend the events to compensate for the post-extension demands...

So you're going to log on every 20 hours to get this? Good luck getting both from absolute scratch.
There is also lobi you can use to get the photos required...

heh, there is a problem with your logic. Yes, you can only do a run every 20 hours but you dont have to play the game for the time you cant do a run. All your 1000 hour calculation does, is give you the minimum amount of elapsed time to get the ship once the event goes live. And honestly that isnt even correct. As some will use lobi to get more photos and some will have photos saved from last year.
