So I am forced to wonder.. If you get the event initially and you still get crystal shards, why couldn't they still allow the mission to continue past 5/2? Cant they allow the mission to go past 5/2 with minimal impact? I feel as long as you picked up the mission within the time it was available, just let them finish it and then move to the ones that give 100 Fleet marks... Let those who didn't pick it up at all deal, not those who have 10 shards into it already. I would point out that the embassy mission for holoprojectors is still showing up and it ended a long time ago. It still allows me to get it. So I am not sure if I should continue to bother or not.
Could you please extend the finish date for the event? I'm pretty new to the game and did not start playing the Crystaline entity fleet action until about a week ago Due to work I'm unable to play as often as I would like and I have managed to collect about 7 shards so far & i am not going to have enough time to get the 14 x needed & I'm desperate for the Dilithium
I'm sure there are a lot of other people in the same situation.

that moment when you realize the CE reward event will end wtih you having collected 13 shards.
Right there with you, Toval
But then, I *am* 13. So it was fate!!
I do kinda feel shafted because it said "once per day", and frankly, on the last day (May 2) I will not be allowed to do it because I did my one on April 30th too late in the evening due to being stuck at work for a stupid "mandatory training." Sigh.
I finished the first project with ease, and have done the second project several times, on my KDF character.
My Fed character, however, was not yet level 50 when the event started, and now she has 13 shards. 13. Just one short of the prize for the first project. She won't be able to do the event again before shard maintenance. I don't see why the event cannot be extended; several players have requested this and extending it for another week wouldn't hurt anyone.
While I'm at it, the 8k limit on refining dilithium per day could be increased to 10k, too (not just for this event), but that's a contention for another thread.
Seriously, shutting the game down for maintenance 4 hrs before the Crystaline Entity shard event ends? Can anyone say poor management? Can anyone say "interdepartment memo"? Just another shining example of not well thought out programming/maintenance by Cryptic/Perfect World.
this is indeed correct and would branflakes care to comment please
