see topic, I was busy the last time and I'd like another shot at it.
There was a dev blog or interview that eluded to that. I have 12 shards to put into it. The short time frames and limited misses makes these events so hard. I avoided the summer event completely to avoid the hassle and the new ship isn't worth it. They need to reduce the attendance percentage per duration of their events and make the missions possible to fail so difficulty makes up for the login-spam.
