Coupled with the lag time up to 10 seconds between actions, this has been great :|

    Here we go again. Last half hour and THIS pops up after the game freezes on me and I now can't get back in. This was after I got an error at log in error message and told to try again later. mad6cbrl11ql.jpg

    Same issue here, for a second event in a row no less. This game is quickly becoming akin to the ice cream machine at McDonalds…

    Not sure it’s working all that great, just dumped in a bunch of personal review rewards without any changes to my ranking 😡

    If these problems persist to happen, I may start to think someone is intentionally attacking the servers. Never had this **tsk tsk** before Windows version went live.

    I'm jealous, I got the other two repeatedly but this one evaded me!

    Could probably resolve this by auto-redeeming galaxy super rares, but that would ruin the "fun" that comes with the last minute rush.

    Yes, unpopular opinion, but maybe there should be a function that forces collection upon reaching 15. If you don't collect, your total does not advance. I have never saved; I collect as I go and my top finish in a galaxy event is 4th (had the chronos, didn't have the time). Don't get the sandbagging thing but I don't see it changing either, so tap on!

    It's been 12 hours since the end of the event, and STT hasn't even ack. the problem near the end of the event. WHY? @STT Community - what kind of support is this ????

    There shouldn't be that much to study - the structure of galaxy events combined with the "cleverness" of the user base has led to a model where the activity in the last hour or so of the event spikes to a point that users are using the game in a way that isn't supported, anticipated or (likely) intended.

    You can enhance resources to support peak activity, or develop changes that discourage activity levels that probably rival a DDOS attack except it's valid users completing valid actions.

    This is merely my opinion - but it seems ridiculous for final positioning in a 96 hour event to rely so heavily on the availability of a person for the last hour of it. Those of us that work or sleep during those crucial final hour(s) just have to post a number and pray.

    I saw the "we're sorry" reward for the system issue. A bit weak. I was fortunate that I was able to get back in the game in time to convert the bonus to VP before the end of the event. However, others could not - these are the ones that got potentially hurt as they could have lost out on the Hoshi.....

    Personally, I agree with @Schnetz and @*Nomad* that something should be changed in galaxy events so that the bonus conversion to VP is done immediately/automatically, like in skirmish or faction events.

    Nice lag at the end of the event. Cost all of us a position spot or two, Took approximately 5 to 10 seconds for each of the three parts of each. I watched the time as I "waited" for each part to go through. I don't know why this seems to be happening during every event but something needs to be done about it.
