This event came a bit too soon imo. But if this is how frequent events are going to be then that's ok, cause we can just skip events we're not ready to partake in since there'll be another one soon.
It DOES make the 14.99 for the dispatcher/extra factory seem really steep though. Especially since it's per-event. That's just nuts. IMO that price should last a few events or a few months of events, and have a cheaper one off.
Hopefully the mission design is a bit better but I imagine there's still going to be stupid roadblock missions with double requirements scattered throughout. When I got to those in some of the Christmas chains I just stopped. It's not worth the time or effort.
Also, the fact that the new event location doesn't respect the sound mute is insane, how does that get past QA?! That needs to be fixed immediately.
