    Will all main event stores be as minimalistic as this?

    Also, I don't see Spectral Shell 3 as a purchasable BP.

    Not interested. Factory 13 + Ship lab 12 will take me another month ...
    If they hinted that a few weeks ago, then everyone wouldn't be angry (if they weren't already). I didn't do my Ship Lab, because I thought it wouldn't be necessary to do so when the update happened (low priority). I did get to Factory 12 and FB 16, but the remaining upgrades to allow construction of the Bastion will take me a couple weeks, a month at most.

    Actually I do remember Chris mentioning back when labs up to 12 became available that Lvl 12 Ones would be needed for t7 and the latest tech from axis (like alien base guns requirein Lvl 12 arms lab)

    I think however that the point payout is too low even for such a "small" store

    Any solution to this would be appreciated

    No, no, as we can read in the Contact Event info, they're gonna give us the Altairian tech to fight the Ny'tah's armada. Basically they're recruiting us to fight their enemies. Not bad lore, but could be more elaborated and interesting. Also, the Vega Federation keep silently mining with no purpose, what about them in the lore? Can we know about them anytime soon?

    Looks terrible. Why dont u kix peeps go back and work on something better then release it. Is this the main event? It only goes three days. What exactly is this poor event supposed to be?

    We are altarians. Best we could come up with only three people still working on this game. Sorry it's terrible. Please give us your money or we will nerf everything and reduce staff to two people and force you all into one sector.

    There are hardly any fleets to hit and unless you hit the altarian 80 and 70 fleets you will be grinding forever. Then Kix cut the event from four days to three days. Just terrible. And if the first event for a new tier is poor it does not bode well for the rest of the season.

    Not sure where you are looking? that fraction you see 0/8 is the potential future ability to farm for the blue print.

    Go back and read the notes at the bottom of the event briefing. Main events will offer full blueprints but all other events (like devastation) will only offer pieces. My guess is the "Currently Owned" is how many blueprint pieces there are to collect before you get the full device.

    -------
    That said this event doesn't look all that promising. Sorta waiting for someone to do the calculations for how long it will take to grind out anything. Unless you can farm the 80s, which given the last seasons "difficulty buffs" on events, means coin only people are going to be grinding the low end stuff for a while. At least until those get buffed to prevent people from "hitting outside their level".
    Main events will allow the players to buy the BP in full. In subsequent events, you can either buy a BP in full or split your points into buying fragments of a BP(s).

    Idk, it was quite obvious to me, that those previously unused labs and factory levels would be needed for something, and the nearest "something" was T7, so i decided to max all that stuff first to be ready for such case. We had 4 months for labs and 2 months for factory/bay... this was enough.
