    Good. We have a date. Have to think that with "large event" it will last through the end of the month so what to do about August monthly EO maps. Not an issue if one's stockpiles are high, but if not... :/ 1-5 to 3-5 are not big deal, but certainly 5-5 & 6-5 (and 4-5 to some extent) can chew up resources.

    Do your monthly quests and the early EO as soon as the month starts, then weight the odds on 5-5/5-6 towards the end of the event?

    *is lucky in that aspect, still have to clear 5-4

    How long will the event last, based on previous large ones?

    @Ferreae: Normally I just clear EO maps before event, but bit different this time around due to various factors. For sure I'll do 1-5 to 3-5 and quite possibly 4-5 as well, but for 5-5 & 6-5, gonna have to wait and see. Hopefully not, but if I'm bogged down/event's not going well, then may have to skip those two for August.

    As for length, Summer 2015 started Aug. 10 and after extensions ended Sept. 7. Spring 2016 started May 3, and after extensions ended June 1st. So for both 7-map "large events", effectively looking at almost a full month. I doubt this will initially be planned for that long, but I do expect a little more that 3 weeks initially planned. It's not an event without some bug and extension. Also depends if "large event" can still also mean 6 maps, though with dual gauge maps, hidden starts, etc., 6 maps could still be quite long.

    @Leyana: Initially most likely, but would not surprise me by the time everything is said and done it covers 4 weekends.

    @goesto11 I think they upgraded Kure so we can't count on it to die for our sins and get an extension again.

    @goesto11 I'm probably giving up on next month's 5-5 and 6-5 too.

    These two EOs can be serious resource sinks if unlucky

    @Leyana: One would hope so for Kure, but just in general if there's some new mechanic (with bugs) or they just underestimate stuff -> extension. An extension isn't guaranteed, but it's not all that uncommon either as you know. At any rate, more there is to do - whether # of maps, new ship drops, etc., more time needed by players.

    @kazenorin: You're not kidding. :/

    Edit: Any history/chance of any point related (in-game discount, dmm-page discount) regarding points to be tied around event? Read that DMM changed policy towards more of a 'specific game specific reward' idea, rather than a blanket promotion?

    @Leyana: Question. Can't recall whether there's been a Kai ni release along with an event patch. Has that happened before? No big deal if there is one or not, just curious.
    @Ferreae: Yep.
