I'm not happy with the fact that after completing our first Fleet Starbase project that we have to wait 20 hours before we can redeem the rewards. I don't see the point... We already completed them. Why not just let us get the rewards? Or make it like DOFF missions where the cooldown kicks in when after getting the Fleet Starbase project rewards.
Well, there is something to be said for not letting the people who donate the last little bit to finish the project have dibs on the provisions, by letting it be available instantly when they may be the only ones on the starbase screen, but 20 hours is rather long--I think it was implemented to let all players have a day's time to become aware that the provisions are available before any players can actually grab them up, thus reducing monopolization of the provisions. After all, who wants to log in to find that a project has finished and the provisions were sold out while you were away at work? It would end up like people watching ebay auctions and checking the auction status every hour.
What I would like to see is a "reservation" system whereby anybody who contributes more than a critical amount to a provisioning project be allowed to reserve one instance of the item provisioned. The critical amount should be high enough that less than half of the provisions can possibly be reserved in that way (e.g. you have to contribute at least 10% of the project requirement if it grants 20 of the item). This would let people "guarantee" that they could get the item, but doing so would cost them for the privilege.
