Only one Shard slice evry 20 Hrs, what jerks PWE is
Fabulous event.. If you started early. If you are late to that game and thought you'd make it up on volume, nope. Although not advertised like the winter event with the daily races for Q photos, you can only acheve 1 shard slice every 20 Hrs no matter how many times you participate. Fail Fail FAIL.. I so hate those PWE people who direct these sorts of design choices. You can only get the reward once, why torture people by forcing them into an arbitrary scedule. The answers which come to mind do not bear repeating, they are very ugly.

It is kind of annoying - do Cryptic gain anything by forcing player to turn on the game once every day? I'd happily play the event 14 times in a row to get enough shards - it's a fun event anyway, and the other rewards are really good.
Instead I'm playing for 10 minutes every day ... why!?

Cuz its all you can take of the not fun, outright insulting development choices. Equal miserable grind for everyone.

Why should they even increase the amount you can do it when Dilithium mining is only once a day as well unless you have mining claims? If you can't take the grinding of items in a game then you need to stop playing MMO's because every MMO has some sort of item(s) you have to grind for to get more of or enough to use for a rare item. Sorry to say about your luck but thats how they did it so suck it up and play or uninstall it.

...or wait until it changes, since a great deal of things in the game tend to change through patching.

OMG grind in a MMO. I have never heard of such a thing in my life.

To be fair it's not even a grind, just a daily reward for a shiny. If you find this offputing then perhaos this isn't the game you want to be playing.

Where is the "Like" button for this Steam discussion stuff? Because I would hit "Like" on most of these posts.

OK let me rephrase, DSthall took us from a Western concept of grind to an Asian concept of grind and the two are magnatudes different. Things that were smooth and relativly efficient have collapsed into a misery of time and effort sinks for very little gain.

We get paid in pennies for hours and hours of work, Its just like the Chinese pay system. It really has taken the "fun" out of the game and turned it into a job.

The anwser is simple and obivous. If you do it once a day, or occasionally every other day, you generally have enough to complete the event with a few extra shards. The reward is 50,000 dilithium, and 1000 fleet marks. I think there is a pet or something also, but anyway, Cryptic does not want people banging out this event for weeks and ending up with 1,000,000 something dilithium. Thats like $75 depending on the market, Cryptic of course still wants to make money on this game.

had they told us at the onset those were the rules, many could have found the time to do it, I was not so lucky

I personally have no plans of even doing the event.

The changes to the Crystaline over the past few years made it not even worth doing, atleast to me.

first off CJ the CE is nothing like it used to be you can actually kill this one . And i have to agree with the OP but only on one point not being able to get it more then once per 20 hours i came on late on this event . So i was forced to get one shard every 20 hours just to make the 14 by the 2nd. But as murphys law would have it . My internet went down on sunday . And i ended up after all that trouble of setting my alarm clock just to wake up at the 20 hour mark to get a shard .With only 13 F ing shards in the end
