Just play with the sound off. That's what I do. Keeps me sane.

People cutting the line in the race really REALLY burns me. Maybe next year we can have a mechanic that forces people to 'take a number'.

Throw in a snow jetpack race of something, using the Risan jetpacks that ended up being shelved, like everything else for an event, that makes for rarer and rarer inventory space. Maybe another way to make more Eppoh marks, besides a pvp race of 'uncertain' format.

And a lower pop instance is about the only real way to deal with griefers. I've been on the unintentional side, of both jumping ahead of, and DQing off the same, so I just do as mentioned. Just funny that they 'do' allow all kinds, to be starship captains, these days. Anywho...

...or maybe a pvp 10 on 10 snow ball gun fight off, for 10 minutes, that also helps create either Eppoh marks, Q freakish pics, or something else new, based on performance, to compliment the races, in a dome that is akin of the gingerbread mini dome, for the obvious. I mean asking the devs to fix 'old' content, is asking a bit much these days. Might as well put in something new, that fills in the (sorta) need gap, or such. Wouldn't mind WW themed class kits, that give themed powers, such as snowman security teams, enemy neut like snow mines, or sci kit blizzard grav wells, or such, rather than new guns, for next year.

In the end though, are we all 'really' missing out, (save for those RL keeps from playing, been there,) and truly prevented from getting the stuff we want? I'll leave it there, for now.

Out of the 4 annoyances mentioned, the 3 VOs in the gazebo are the worst. And the frustrating part is I don't mind the vendors to have VOs. Its just that they SHOUT at such a high volume compared to any other VO in the game, and they keep SHOUTing the same limes over and over every 20 secs.

Btw. I've noticed that when someone jumps the line and I try to wave the soonest possible to send him to the gazebo and take my revenge, it's me who looses. In other words, waving first doesn't win you the place at the start. (I've seen this happen a couple times at least, not yet sure if it's an always valid rule or not.)
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Add Tier 6 staple KDF ship types: Carrier and Bird of prey.
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

No, you *don't* want to wave first, you want the line jumper to wave first, then you wave immediately after. The 'second' waver gets the race.

This is why it is easy to be a 'griefer' with it - just wait until the poor sap at the head of the line waves, and click the button/hit 'F' and poof, they're DQ'd and have to run back to the Breen guy, and you're running the race.

It seems to be happening less often now, which is a good thing.

It doesn't look like that one's getting fixed before the Event ends.

All recipe'd up with nowhere to go.

Sigh...

My MAJOR peeve.

Fast and Furious - people exploiting the snow boots + hopping bug.
And line-cutters - friggin' rude.

The shouter who annoyed me most is the Ferengi shouting about how handsome Q was.
