While you're unable to slot the project, you can continue collecting the pearls (or purchase via Lobi once the daily is gone) and then contribute them once the fix is in.
Got it... thank you for the follow-up!

Cheers,

Thank you for making good and extending the cutoff date.

Hello, "Cryptic"-ers...

Unfortunately, I do *not* rejoice at this announcement of yours. :-) Not in the slightest. For I have started quite *late* with the Risian Project due to some technical issues, and right now - as my KDF is concerned - I am at 52% farther away of my ultimate goal. :-) So, *how* exactly is this going to help *me*? The 8th of August 'extension', I mean. Why not going all the way up to the 15th of August, as it *normally* should? And, even more important: why this... War of the Nerves, in the first place? :-) Because, to tell it to you straight: I do *not* buy this whole "Oops!" sort of approach of the matter at hand. :-)


N.B. I suggest incrementing the option of Zen-buying of the Risian Corvette and/or of the Lohlunat Pearls, as well.


Thank you and have a nice day. ^_^

I shouldn't think it's meant for you. You started late. There were (originally) 35 days to make 25 runs. That's a 10 day buffer. It's not really fair to come in during Sudden Death Overtime because you're only ~12-13 runs deep. You doubled-over the 10 day buffer.

While I can sympathize over your "technical issues", you'll have to wait until next year to finish. Or...

And this *IS* a second option. You can use Zen (or indirectly Dilithium-to-Zen, and/or even EC via the Exchange) to purchase keys. Use the Keys to open Lock Boxes for Lobi. Use the Lobi to buy Pearls. If I recall the Dev posts correctly, the ability to purchase Lobi Pearl packs will continue through 08/15.

Be sure you go ahead and make your runs today-through-Wednesday to get those extra 120 more Pearls. That'll save you a lot of Lobi.



ETA: As I recall, the Lobi Pearl Packs are for sale in-game via the same vendor that sells all the Favor goodies, either on Risa itself or via your Event Rep Store (assuming you ran the 1-Favor project to unlock said Store).

thanks for the extension i sure it will help a lot of people

however i myself will still end up 4 days short on 8 toons

i really cant see why flying high cant play out till the 15th i mean the ships cant be sold and its not like the pearls can be used for something else but thats just my view

i keep on doing the event living in hope that you see the point of view a small gold member sub that really misread the event dates and started far too late to complete
IT'S WORSE THAN THAT IT'S A GAME JIM

# 238 Cant redeem pearls?
08-05-2013, 07:57 PM
Today I manage dot finally get the 1000 pearls and while there is the update notice saying the event was extended til the 7th. I cant find where to turn in the pearls to get the ship. it's not in the reputation tab. just the crystal entity event thing.

Is this a glitch? or is it just extending the event but making it worthless to do because you cant redeem for any rewards?

You know, I really *don't like*... the likes of you, lordhavelock. :-) Can't you see that, by purchasing with SO MUCH Dilithium (--> Zen) a Master-Key for SO LITTLE Lobi,... it STILL won't be enough for people like me to collect enough Pearls, to buy that ship?!
Oh, wait! You either are the Politically Correct New Man or simply... you're having *someone* amidst your friends and/or relatives who works there, at "Cryptic". So,... which one is it? ^_^ Are you biased in any way or... what?! Because, if you're not even biased, then I feel *truly* sorry for you... :-(
