Yea, I'm the same way. Wanting it more for completist sake, than anything else.

Especially because this is the first week where I got this close! Literally only 3-4 hours short, mainly because the last two crates are 8HR research times! If it wasn't for that, I'd have gotten it. I might have made sure to time things a bit better earlier in the week too when it was 2HR and 4HR crate times. But alas, oh well.

The secret to completing the event is getting as many of the researches done on the first day as possible. Preferably 7 to 9 of them. After that the longer research times fit better with a more relaxed playing schedule, checking in only 2-3 times a day.

I agree with everything DS wrote. The big problems with this new Event System are, what I already said before:

1) The new units are poor and badly developed, and it doesn't worth to get through all chapters ONLY to unlock any one of them, but only if you are going to play like a mad for the Bonus Crates after the 23th chapter like I did for my two Rebel accounts.
2) The Research Time of 8h is too much.
3) The amount of crystals to finish any research is abusive.
4) Better if instead of all these new useless/stupid units they had put skins for Jets/Naval/GR in the Events System.
5) If they just reduce from 8h to 4h the Research time, it wasn't need to put more 22h to the Events.

But Disney wants to raise the greed of players for the Bonus Crates, and this is a way to force players to rush the 8h research with crystals to get more time to get more Bonus Crates after complete the objectives... Good point to the Devs.

But it's okay, I'm not complaining about the new system anymore. Rebel players are attacking more. I had my Imperial base attacked 19 times (!!!) while I was sleeping on ErKit, and I won 18 defenses in a row, until lose for the 19th attacker. Can you think how many medals I won in just one night?

I didn't play so much with my Imperial account. I only unlocked the new units, and upgraded some Elites that weren't maxed out yet as Kubaz, Tie Advanced, Tognath and MTV. After I get Kubaz to level 5, I abandoned the Events because the other units are useless at any level.

By the other side, i played a lot with my 2 Rebel accounts. I unlocked Tognath and put Kessen to level 8, and upgraded the rest of my Elites about 3-4 levels for my primary base, what was my goal. And I unlocked and got all these Elite units at a good level for my 2nd (sandbagging) Rebel base what was a big deal.

I enjoyed doing this event. I don't even mind the 8 hour research times; it's a welcomed break from playing the game. However, back-to-back-to-back 8 hour research times is sinister. Because of this forum, I was well informed and could plan ahead. But so many people I know got bit by this. The research hours are so backloaded that the half-way point of the event is really after completing objective 17. About 64 research hours to complete this event....objectives 18-22 are 4+4+8+8+8 = 32 research hours. It's a very good formula for turning people off from the event.

Yep - I only did the "EP Grind" for the Elite Event Crates. Didn't get any Elite Crates in Week #1 and barely got some in Week #2 but Weeks #3 to #6 it was EP Grind and Clock Watching...

+1 to the Excessive / Abusive Crystal Costs to complete Objectives that were often 3 to 6 times the Crystals needed for a specific "Time".

I only used it Twice... Once I took a big "Crystal Hit" for a 4 Hour Objective to "get back on track" and today I used it for 5 minutes remaining to squeeze in that one last Elite Event Crate before it got to less than 2 hours remaining.

For Week #6 - Chapter Objective #4 (Objective #23) - "Deploy 4 Hero's" - I did 4 Attacks deploying just 1 Hero each and exiting battle handing over some Medals and losing some Conflict Medals (which didn't matter anyway).

I also crystalized one Hero prior to immediate deployment to avoid the 10 Minute cook time.

AND SO... the Developers / Game got some Crystals from me and some Players got some Medals and I got some much need Unlocks / Upgrades for Ithorian Infilitrators and Tognath Marksman on my HQ 10 Account.

My other 2 Accounts also did well...

Normally "random" it is just by coincidence that my FINAL ELITE EVENT CRATE was all Fathier Rider giving me 1/3 of the needed Data Frags for a Level 6 Upgrade.

NOTICE: Last Jedi Unit Game Samples still available for rest of day in Daily Crates.

And now on the Naval Assault Event #2...
