Add me to this list. I have the correct project slotted. I checked twice. Imagine my surprise when I only got fleet marks and a crystal pet. I really wanted the multi-mark package. That was the whole reason I fought that annoying Crystaline Entity 14 times!

I was extremely pissed off when lag prevented me from claiming my box of (40 or) 50 Marks - Mulitple choice. Lage mage the session extremely difficult; more difficult than Elite -- but i stilol pulled off 2nd place. Unfortunately i was too close when the Entity shattered and got blown up. I tried at first to collect my crate but the game doesn't allow you to pick up anything when you're 'dead'.

I tried to fly back but the combination of Lag, Rubberbanding and choppy glitches tossing me off-course ate up the 180-second countdown. At best i was roughly 2/3 of the way from the spawn point to where my Marks dropped when i was kicked from the instance.

Early this morning i had a truly damnable glitch playing on Elite. My crate of 60 Marks dropped, i got the HUD txt alrt for grabbing it, but saw no Big Blue Beacon. There was still a mob of Crystal Fragments to fight off. Being in combat i cannot interact/pick up anything so i dispatched the Fragments as fast as i could. But by the time they were destroyed i had maneuvered out of range and no longer had the prompt to collect my prize. I carefully searched the area, but got neither the HUD txt alrt back nor any Big Blue Beacon.

So now that's 100 or 110 Marks i'll never get.

Correction:

I just realised i was already doing Elite Only for maximum rewards. So it is more like 120 to 140 Marks i'll never get/have lost.

I would also like to add that it is strange that this is the only elite mission where you have to remember to grab the mark box. Why isn't it automatically given to you?

I got my 13th shard right now. I could get the 14th in about 24-25 hrs (work time in Europe).

Still possible for me to finish it?

I also just got my 13th...
is there any word about extending the event time? I lose my pack for less than 2 hours!

Edit: (I think you have 2 extra hours before it finishes, you are ok)

Nomad would Sterilize this and all other flaws from the game...

With all the lag, rubberbanding, glitchs from server overload and what-have-you players have been sufffering, disconnects etc, the event should be continued another 3 months even as other scheduled new content is implemented. Yesterday in 6hrs i could accomplish no more than getting 3 of my 6 Lv 50 through an event that should be no more than 15 minutes itself with a few minutes of prep time before and wrap-up after.

Hopefully all 6 will complete their 14 but i'm behind enough i can't be sure; i guess i'll have to find out the old fasioned way...
