I really like the idea of the event reputation and encourage people to play a given event but not feel restricted to a given hour so I really hope Cryptic expands on this.
The only question mark I have about the whole thing is the contribution threshold; 14/21 to some might be a bit too much. Perhaps 50% of the event would be better than 66% but that's just me I. Some may not necessarily have premade/private teams to rely upon.
The CE will no longer uber heal itself. The worst case scenario is it accumulates a bunch of small shards and gets massive Damage Buffs, but there are a few Sci Skills that will strip that buff.
A PUG will win it, it might just take a little while.
Does this event feature mixed teams of both Feds and KDF? If not, there could be a shortage of players on the red side. We barely manage to start 5-player events, but 10 or more is pretty much out of our reach most of the time.
Interesting. Looks like a fair amount of effort into being more than just a DPS fest, which I certainly like, particularly how its got some specific use for lesser-used sci powers. Gonna be a pain for alting though. Definately glad to see new events that are both teamwork-emphasis AND have good rewards. Looking forward to it.
