I'm happy with it. It's not like it's a random drop. If I do X, I'll get it. If I don't, I can buy it with Y. Everyone has a chance to get it. Whether they actually do is completely up to them, not Lady Luck. Who apparently is jealous of my boogie and won't give me anything I need. :p
I'm pretty sure that like most events 'round here this one will be fairly brief. It will not surprise me if we have ample time to get all our alts covered. I'm sure 25 days sounds grindy on its face, but give it a look. It might just be fun.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.
