FWIW, I had a blast flying Fighters this afternoon.  Sure, most of the games were only 1 or maybe 2 humans on a side, but it was constant action and a lot of fun.  Had a couple of fun tussles with human pilots along the way.  I didn't catch the name of the FALCO pilot in the 109-Z, but you flew like a champ, buddy. 

 

got a bit of gold, two crates, and a Token or two for epic medals.  We'll see what the crates bring tomorrow, although I'm not confident about the doubling given the progress bar when I logged off.

OK so, on a scale of 0-10

10 being the most hated

what would you rate this entire event as.

This may surprise you, but as much as I hated the event, I'm going to rate it a 10 and hope WG does them more often.  Why? Am I crazy??  Here's why.  When dropping to tier 3 (down from tier 4) to do my tier 1-4 token missions, I discovered that tier 3 is guaranteed to be top tier during the event and that it usually led to very fun matches.  They were either bot slaughterfests or, occasionally, some other capable human was on the red team (either farming w/r or dodging the event?) and I ended up having several "good" knife-fights like we used to have way back in beta (before sectors, obviously) where you'd end up going round and round with a guy for several minutes before someone found advantage or luck. 

 

Also, tier 4 seemed to be solidly tier 4 the couple times I did try it, so that might appeal to some people trying to play tier 4, without having to face tier 5.  I honestly hadn't payed much attention to what the tier split was in previous phases as I was usually doing 5+ and it seemed like the normal 2 tier split.  Yesterday, I only tried the couple tier 4 matches before giving up on that event, so I can't say if the split was still there at tier 5+.  

 

Overall, the event was interesting, but poorly balanced and not well thought out.  I can't stand bots or matchmaker deciding the match outcome (this is usually what causes me to walk away from the game for months); this event added attack or defend as a strong indicator of who would win (2 humans foolishly queued up as ga?  guaranteed to lose because they are on attack and the enemy humans will eat their bots, using up respawns and getting a kill-all victory).

 

It was a terrible event. I rate it a 10 and hope they do it again so I can go wreck stuff in my tier 3s!

Currently, I rate it as a 3.  It has been a lot more fun than I thought it might be.
