    I am so glad to her that you are going to continue the skits at the beginning of the episodes. I can’t wait to hear what happens to the crew of the Prioritas(sp?) next. As for the Winter Wonderland… Loving it. I really enjoy killing the assimilated snowmen with my liberated borg, just seems right somehow. Really looking forward to the T6 carrier, it will be my first.

    Great show again guys. As for my experience with the Winter Event, I’ve got a couple things. First up, I feel they could give a little more of the ornaments per event, would make things that much easier. The other thing I’ve seen, at least on tribble, is that if you have one of the ships claims slotted on one of your alts, and have contributed to photos to it, it doesn’t auto complete, not even if you add more photos. I’ve seen that I can get the discount on characters that haven’t slotted it, but if it has been slotted, you don’t appear to get the discount probably without dropping and reslotting, which I’m not ready to do yet

    The winter event is FUN. This is the most fun I have had since Legacy Of Romulus. Delta Rising has been a big disappointment when it had gotten released.

    Being able to get a free T6 carrier, in and of itself, is worth everything. The new warpcore should be awesome for the new Breen ship.

    For those that complain about the WW grinding, there is no real grind that hasn’t changed since the other 2 year’s versions.

    I am also enjoying picking up items for my other Captains that I haven’t had the chance to before.

    The Winter Event is great. I enjoy the concept of it. And I enjoy doing the parts that I like doing. Tides of Ice has been a lot of fun for me. And this year I have finally gotten a handle on how to win the stupid race for the Glossies of Q. So I will finally get those Breen ships. Soon I will have the warp cores and then I can rock out in a an Absolute Zero modified Breen ships. It will be cool. (pun intended!)

    Salutations P1 Crew . never got the chance to say congratulations on 200 episodes well done indeed .
    For the community question , I Like the new tides event , with the snowman attack and the SNORG attack its fun . while im not happy with the Gazebo design , i love the Tides area . the winter event distracts me from the rest of the game .
    the WW grind is for the most part alright though the tides requirement for certain unlocks aren’t very alt friendly .
    Loved hearing from Thomas .I love his design on the Pathfinder, much better than the designs of Intel ships . and loved the insight to the icons . Loved the show , if I Dont get the chance HAPPY HOLIDAYS P1

    I’m pretty happy with the winter event. While the Tier 6 carrier, warp core and kit modules are all nice additions, what I’ve noticed most about this year is that the grind feeling is less than past year. With each event taking between 5-15 minutes to complete, and a new event beginning every 7-15 minutes, there’s little down time in the winter wonderland. I’m constantly moving on to the next task.

    The level of effort Cryptic has put into the map with the Tides of Ice addition and ice textures replacing wood gives the event the polished feel it’s been needing. The punny Snorg at Tides cracked me up as well. Love the humor.

    I think Cryptic has done a great job providing an area where I can engage in solo and social activities without getting bored. It’s the most social I’ve been in-game since launch. I’m looking forward to next year’s additions.
