It was horrible. It seemed to me that 9 out of 10 particles I scanned collapsed. Then if I actually got the klingon this one person who had a higher DPS would be over and and take it. Not because I did not shoot first, but because they did more damage. After the event I ended up with 9, when by my calculation I should have scored at least 15 with the klingon kills. 30 or 40 if I did not have so many collapsed. And of course you can't do squat with them unless you have the 15. With a rebalance I would also like to see you be able to turn in X amount to him and he keeps a log, so it shows like 6 more left to turn in. Kind of like the craft the delta flyer with the rare particles. Otherwise I am not sure how to get to the 15 plus needed since they dissolve after X amount of time.
Between this and trying to get an iPhone 4s this morning at 3am, I was not too happy.
I agree without everyone. This event is not fun. I almost wanted to throw my computer against the wall because of one person that was just going around slamming on F. If anything for the event have the people go to the holodeck with there "student". Then you have to zone into a "holographic" academy (basically just a private instance of teh academy made just for the event). Then only allow up to 5 people per "holo" instance. These 5 people would be put ona team and would work together to complete the event for awards. Just my 2 cent.
I had the same experience. Someone was literally running around in a wide circle, clearly mashing F and stealing mine, as well as others', scans and partical dispersal. I must have had a good 12 or 13 stolen from me.
In general the amount of griefing made it not fun and way too chaotic.
