Is everyone happy with that?

(you can buy it via lobi faster btw)
This seems like a pretty good deal and it will net you a free warship.

I'll be logging in and running the race with my 6 Toons to make sure that they all have the ship available to them.

I just hope that I don?t forget all about it later.

When does this winter even begin?

The post I was replying to was making the comment that, at it's core, MMO gameplay is repetitive. I was responding with the fact that while that is fundamentally true, there is usually some attempt to inject something resembling variety into the equation.
Except that STO's endgame does have variety which was what that post was about.

So what if there is just one event to get one item at a Christmas event?

The Breen ship looks very cool and fits with my insane liberated borg's aesthetic style due to its mostly asymmetrical design.

Unless they changed to track, it doesn't take long to run it. What they hopefully changed was the bottleneck of STARTING THE DAMN THING -- as only one player could trigger it every minute or so.

That was a problem at certain times of day. I like to wait until after most of the US goes to bed for stuff like this.
I'll sell you some weapons from New Romulus. Never fired, only dropped once.

I only hope this mechanic has been fixed, and also the chances of griefers knocking people off the track are astronomical.

This will likely be as much of a Fiasco as the beer fight for the LoTRO 5th anniversary.
The trick was to change instance and enter one that had the lowest number of people in it. If they run the wonderland the same way just do that.

Is if the timer was set to 12 hours, so you can do it at 7am and then again at 7pm, that way if you are going away over xmas/new years you can still get it and not stress about doing it each day
