Course, that got me wondering - how many are doing the w/50 and how many are doing the Hourly w/20-w/15?

100 Marks @w/50 = 1500 Dil
100 Marks @Hourly w/20 = 2550 Dill

150 Marks @w/50 = 2250 Dil
150 Marks @Hourly w/15 = 5100 Dil

If I had nothing to do during this event otherwise and had oodles of caffeine, I know which way I'd go...but I don't, so I'm going to be eating the convenience tax out the wahzoo on my conversions...

Looking at this one guy (one of my rarely played guys) I'm about to start.

683 Undine; 13x 50 for 9750 Dil vs. 34 Hours of 20 for 17340 Dil; losing 7590 Dil
825 Dyson; 16x 50 for 12000 Dil vs. 55 Hours of 15 for 28050 Dil; losing 16050 Dil
858 Romulan; 17x 50 for 12750 Dil vs. 57 Hours of 15 for 29070 Dil; losing 16320 Dil
1093 Nukara; 21x 50 for 15750 Dil vs. 72 Hours of 15 for 36720 Dil; losing 20970 Dil
506 Omega; 10x 50 for 7500 Dil vs. 33 Hours of 15 for 16830 Dil; losing 9330 Dil

So yeah, I'm eating 70260 Dil by doing the 50 conversions instead of spreading those hours out over the event and doing the conversions that way...heh, and this is a rarely played toon - going to be far worse a loss on other toons. Oh well.

edit: The above is based on being T5 in the Reps, where the Hourly is currently providing 510 Dil for 15/20 Marks vs. the 750 Dil for 50 Marks. 8472 is the only Hourly requiring 20 Marks, the others are 15 Marks.

It is kind of depressing to think how much is going to be lost amongst the nine toons; but I just don't have the time to do it that way. Had thought about doing it partial...doing as many of the Hourly as I could and then spending the 27th to convert the rest; but I didn't want to risk something coming up and not being able to do the conversions. So meh, I decided just to eat the loss.

Just to make an update: the DOFF missions gave 3000 at completion, so everything is all right. The regular 2000 is visible only before and during the DOFF mission.

This really needs to be a thing. 16,000 marks takes 80 minutes to convert, and that's not counting the human factor. I'm guessing it wouldn't be too difficult to add x10 projects (500 marks/30 Processors, etc) for this, and it would be a tremendous boon.

There has to come a point in our careers where we get the Shepard effect and the enemy NPCs realize they're going up against a meat grinder and self preservation kicks in.

Everytime we have one of these weekends, I always have a blast, But I have to say, Being an old Okie, It channels my inner Ernie Ford, and I can't get his song out of my head for weeks...

You load sixteen tons, what do you get
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the company store

Ok, I probably really dated myself here now. anyways, always a blast with this event. Helps also with my alt sickness.
