I don't know who told you, but I do not enjoy travelling thirty jumps, refitting, and preparing for fun to be let down. I don't think the rest of my fellow capsuleers do either. The premise of LEs are great, and I think all of us on this thread would agree but.. we are being let down. It is like pistol whipping a blind kid CCP. We travel far and wide to get here, and we get let down. Please, rethink your strategy, not for your own sake, but for ours. We the players who want to have fun.

Signed. 20 jumps to have no real effect on either the storyline or my wallet, getting involved in a fleet and organizing and not seeing a single hostile, and generally being bored, are not very enjoyable. The sansha live events we hear about are huge, pitched battles, but it seems the reality is that those are few and far between.

tl;dr: make it worth our while.

agreed you need about 30 mins for a fleet to form. Though, the logi pilots need to be on their game more.

This was even more fun than when I fought to the bitter end, lost a ship, brought in another one, triumphed and got no reward :)

WAs my First LIve event, and we had many many people coming from the other incursion like 30jumps then sort the logi out takes time and refitting so that fact that you made it so short was a bit crap, and the fact that we get little too no reward for running these we do these for fun. So CCP what is the time frame for running these event as this one from spawn-too end was like 1 Hour so the fleet we had was unable too get everyone from 30 jumps and logi cap chain up.

This is the 1st incursion I have ever been involved in. I'm very disapointed at the speed at which you dropped the event. If this is going to happen every time I feel doing the events is a waste of time, energy and anticipation.

Please next time leave it longer

This was going to be my first live event... I was a good bit excited about participating in it. ^_^

Unfortunately, in the 20-30 minutes it took to assemble a fleet and arrive on scene, the event had been cut short. We had a fleet of 70 players at Gidali Planet 1, and we had missed the action by mere minutes.

It was a very disappointing experience, to say the least.

I don't even care about reards. It's a live event - I just want to be able to PARTICIPATE. It's rare enough for them to happen when I'm actually online. When a fleet can't even get formed up in time to respond before the sansha actor leaves a bunch of taunts and disappears... there's something wrong with the live event.

Boomerang trolling: When you enjoy trolling your own subscribers so much they let their monthly subscriptions lapse because of all the fun they can actually have in other games.

Dear CCP,

Flying 20-30 jumps, possibly refitting, and setting up fleets and cap chains for Live Events takes time. If you want your Live Events to be successful maybe you should give us some warning, some time to get organized, and some time to actually do anything. (Some bigger rewards - maybe along the lines of the mothership site - would help increase interest as well.)

today's live event in Gidali was rather pathetic. If you want us to enjoy these live events and at some times we do enjoy them. But 2 points must be raised.

1 - the notice, we have no way of knowing when it will happen till it is happening. I think even with minimal notice we were able to form a substantial fleet to combat it within minutes. But more notice and information will make it more enjoyable... maybe some post in the constellation channel to spark something before the wormholes spawn. This would be good for both parties. I know CCP would like to kill our ships and we want to kill Sansha (win/win)

2- The rewards... we are almost guaranteed to lose ships and field more. If there were rewards closer to HQ sites or Mom sites it would encourage more of our communities to be involved. We would bring bigger juicier ships and again you would have more faction ships dying. (win/win)

I'm not entirely sure how making folk lose their ships while being on AP (including freighters and orcas) is going to encourage players to stay with the game. But it's damn fun to watch. Could you please name the team that is running those Events? I would like to have them my vote for the ****-Players-Off-Award for this month.

The freighter from last night was filled with tec 2 mods in case you didn't get the killmail. Nice catch!

There are 2 things i dont like:

1. repeating myself over and over again
2. wasting my time

The last 2 LE in Gidali, were disappointing, i only wasted my time there.
