What can I say, the Winter Event is fun, an overall improvement of last year's event (which was fun too).
At first I thought that the UI was bugged or something, because I had to replace my Tribbles with snowballs, but I couldn't add them to the quickbar. It took me a while (read an eternity) to figure out that I had to deselect "Lock Tray"
Oh goody, so gotta by the gun to get decent loot.
You know I got other things to do, so either I have to grind snow piles or not get anything from the event. So how is that fun?
These are my thoughts exactly. I'd rather be doing nearly any other content in the game, except maybe the Academy events and dilithium mining. So once supplies pick up, about midway through the event, I'll just buy all the winter jackets I want with EC rather than waste time and end up with ridiculous oversupply and undersupply of various random collectibles.
I have yet to find epohh tags in piles of snowballs, but aside from breeding the little rugrats I can't find a use for them. Any way to catch the randomly appearing creatures ? If the snowball fights aren't fun enough I REALLY enjoyed throwing them at opposite faction players just to see them get knocked down by them.
