Is there a level restriction to the winter event or can any player enjoy it?

It sounds like it's bind on pickup. If that's the case then as soon as you earn it it's bound. I'm away on holiday so I'll miss out. Even so, I still applaud the fact that a free ship is being given out without an inordinate amount of grinding or dilithium. I see this as a true Christmas present.

I love Christmas presents. :-)

A really good question. What can be earned by players of what level? I may not have time to get a ship but I may have time to get those AWESOME jackets!!

If there is a level restriction on the event, I imagine it will be very low, 10 or so. And if it's open to low-level players, everything will be earnable by low level players- they just won't be able to open the reward pack box the ship comes in until they reach its level.

Devs, Question.

Is there going to be a waiting line like the last winter event? Players like myself who have ADD will find that very difficult to do.

Why is it so hard to write a single SQL statement and make all these winter items from last yeard unbound too?

?????

Why would such a fix-up script be running all the time? Why don't you write an SQL statement that you run once on your entire database during server maintenance?

(And for that matter: Why do you store everything as its own item and not only the parts that are user-dependent? E.g. why do we have to discard ships and reclaim them to get bugfixes to costumes or transwarp abilities? How did you manage to write a game with such a weird database back-end?)

I have a feeling jackets are going to be the top priority however.
It's the same race as last year. It takes 5 minutes 10 tops

Everything sounds cool for my first Q's Winter wonderland event. However, the only thing I have misgivings about is the unmelting snowballs that can be used after the winter event. That's just one more thing that griefers will have in their arsenal to annoy people with.
