Duration of Spring Clean Up?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Azureal, May 30, 2008.

    Im just wondering if Jeremy could comment on how long the Spring Clean-Up will run for?

    Phase 1 has been running for a little over a month already (I think) and Phase 2 is about to start. How much longer will folks be able to hand in Phase 1 items? How much longer will Rations and Skins drop from Ophids, and will they stop spawning as loot once the Cleanup is over?
     
  2. Id also like to know if tier 1 rewards will also be available through tier 2 and possibly a tier 3.

    yes t1 rewards are still available even in the t2 section. (test centre)

    This whole event/turn in etc has gone way to long. I do understand that people cant play every day, but come on....this is dragging. Even the Vanguards are bored, nobody will play with them.

    (Now that the rant is over....if this event was put in fast forward X 2 it would have kept my interest more. come on, speed it up!)
     
  5. The "ideal" of Spring Cleanup ...

    is long gone and past ...

    hard tp pinpoint when ... but certainly ...

    We're deep into junk for new


    We're currently just negotiating for better value
    for the old items
    and better graphics / mod's ... for the new.

    hardly a "Spring Clean-up"

    Well since it is called The Spring Clean-Up I would imagine that the durration would be for durring the current spring season in the US and then hopefully it will be over till next spring or maybe go another 5 years and have another clean up.

    This sounds reasonable, I guess. Can anyone confirm that was the duration of the first Cleanup way back when?
     
  9. I don't care if it's called Aisle 7 Clean-Up. I'm just glad to be getting rid of my junk! Hopefully it will go a few weeks to allow us time to get the remaining items sorted. This is especially annoying for me because I have stuff scattered on four shards and not sure what to do about turning in the tickets. May have to transfer to get all the points.:eek:

    Vanguards over powered spawn good for tamers and pvpers. For me it's a waste of time to even try and not because I am quitting, just a futile effort.

    Dont get me wrong, Im all for it lasting awhile. Ive got a lot of stuff to sort out, bag up, and hand in.

    If anything, I was worried it wouldnt last long enough.

    I see no reason not to leave them in permanantly.

    I was hoping someone would bring this possibility up. A way to continually get rid of unwanted items would certainly free up a lot of space across all shards, instead of people hoarding items in hopes of the next Spring CleanUp.

    Duration of Spring Clean Up? simple!
    if its a "Spring Cleaning" it'd end before summer!

    We dont need a "All Year Clean Up"!

    Well, for you "steady-eddies" that troll the forums, some peoples conception of time is vastly different than thou's.

    A month isn't jack,.....try going outside for a change and you won't be so bored. Also, let's say a dev does give in to the no lifers.......then you guys will cry, " I have nothing to do"

    Just chill and find something else to do......:bdh:

    What is the rush of ending it?

    It doesnt effect any person's gameplay and it is a nice little feature in the game. Personally been having some fun going out and killing the Ophids again collecting the skins and rations.

    Also, take in consideration that this is the first "clean-up" that we have had in since... hmm... waaay back in the day.

    Have Fun!!!

    I second that. If you are done turning stuff in, good for you. Some of us can't play all day everyday and have a TON of stuff to turn in. Why shouldn't we have the chance to work our points up by hunting and collecting?
    What does it hurt you to let this whole thing go longer???
     
  24. Per the Producer's announcements, the story arc will continue through the summer, with the "epic" ending coming sometime at the end of summer.

    My guess is that the culmination of the story arc will be the release of SA.
