Satisfy a combo node?

9 valor if I read that correctly.

    Are the objectives supposed to be doubled up?
    It looks odd.

    It also means people could fight over nodes, try other difficulties to clear them.

    Some tactics might be needed.

  • It should not be doubled, no.
    Was it like that for you yesterday already?
    It's not doubled on my end.

    It's only just appeared on my event hub for next week. Two objectives, both repeated twice, giving a total of four objectives.

    Did you leave your game running in the background?
    This event was announced yesterday, and it only contains 2 objectives.
    Try restarting?

    I restarted about an hour ago, and then took the screenshot. Restarted again just now and just get the two, no doubles.

    VICTORY OR VALHALLA!!!!!
    Oh, we'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
    We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
    We'd be alright if the wind was in our sails
    And we'll all hang on behind...
  • This is the only OE so far that requires dil spend to complete. I'd prefer to see a route to complete it that doesn't require dilithium; as is, I just don't plan complete it.
  • This is the only OE I have not and will continue to not complete in it's current form. The requirement of dilithium spending ruins this event as it does the least to encourage engagement of any event released thus far. I think that tying completion of other game elements to reward valor would be more effective at keeping up midweek engagement.
  • I agree with the other posters who say dilithium spending requirement is very inappropriate for OE’s.

    If we'd get, say, 2 Valor for the second node and more for the successive run objectives, it might work better.
    Start with 4 (4/30)
    Clear 2 Nodes. Gain 2 Valor, instead of 1. (6/30)
    48 Hours/3 to charge= 16 Valor (22/30)
    10 Runs +2 Valor [Instead of 1](24/30)
    15 Runs +3 Valor [Instead of 1] (27/30)
    20 Runs +4 Valor [Instead of 1] (31/30)
    30 Runs +5 Valor [Instead of 1] (36/30)
    The 4 Valor for completing it all would let you make 40 runs, instead of 16 in a two days period.
    That would make it doable without the dilithium, if you played it smart and timed it right, plus a little padding, but not much if you didn't get it perfect.
    Thoughts?

    I completely agree on the dilithium, and won't be completing this event as a result (I didn't complete the last one either).

    But more importantly, I don't see what the point of this event is. Every other midweek event gives you something to do by rewarding you for participating in parts of the game that you might otherwise ignore or neglect. That could be gauntlet, shuttles, arena, levelling up crew or whatever, you're encouraged to take part with useful rewards. With this one though, you're encouraged to take part in boss battles with rewards that let you do more boss battles. What's the point? If you already don't like boss battles, you're not going to be encouraged to take part by the prospect of more of it. I don't get it.

    And I'm saying this as someone who is otherwise thoroughly enjoying boss battles.

    There's one good thing about this event, and that's the free valor. It's been enough to let us defeat brutal a couple of times now!

    I would be very happy to be corrected on this if I've miscalculated but it seems to me that it's almost impossible for everyone in an active fleet to finish this event, and we end up with another situation where a feature designed to get fleets working together has perverse incentives buried in it that cut across that goal.

    You're absolutely right. Even on ultra-nightmare there's only 25 nodes available. Assuming 2 battles in 2 days, that means a maximum of 25 fleet members can claim that reward. And that's assuming that nobody solves more than 2, even by accident.

    Fortunately the rewards are so bad the competition hasn't led to many problems so far.
