Duels and fighting missions were easy enough. Unequip missles for duels and just not care since it was not about winning.
Lucky me I even came down with the flu so I could play all day for 5 days.
After using 200 energy per day I will end this event needing 8 items yet. That is a combination of the items always taking 15 energy or just not showing up...EVER. my last 20 missions resulted in me getting 2 items.
And everyone is wondering why people are quitting in droves with each change to a pure P2W system....
