Greetings, Captains!

For our next event in Borg Month, Contagion, a special Galaxy-event Gauntlet will be up for four days! Starting May 19th at Midnight UTC (May 18th at 8:00pm ET), you’ll be able to participate in Borg-themed gauntlets that have a higher chance of dropping Chronitons. There will be four days of these Borg-themed Gauntlets, letting you earn more Chronitons from your Gauntlets up to two times, both before and during Contagion’s Galaxy Event phase. Take the time to improve your crew, or stock up on Chronitons in preparation for the event.

Thanks for playing!

Agreed, it was my experience from the first tie in event I didn’t notice any increase if anything I noticed a decrease during the gauntlet event, I noticed some at the end of the gauntlet event but nothing spectacular. I had screenshots, but I got tired of taking so many.

As for stocking up on chronitons may I suggest:

+1.  I’ve only gotten 1 chron reward in a themed gauntlet (of which I think I’ve been in 4), whereas I usually get at least 1 in the course of a normal gauntlet.

Did they flip the chron switch early?

In my current Gauntlet, I just got a 100-chron reward from a 3-streak, and a 40-chron from the subsequent 6-streak.

Not that I’m complaining; those chrons finally got me the Test Cylinders I needed to finish an item.

I have yet to see one chroniton drop and I have won many battles. It doesn’t look like anything has changed with the chroniton drop. If anything it might be worse. :(

Last I checked I was ranked 10

Chronitons rewards have been increased in a big way. Several people in my fleet have received over 400 in a single gauntlet. Hopefully it keeps up, good job DB!

I got one 20-chron reward so far, which is fairly typical for my regular Gauntlets. Thus, I haven’t seen any increased chroniton drop rate in this themed Gauntlet (nor did I the last time they did a themed version).


EDIT:
In one of the boxes at the end of the Gauntlet, I received 100 Chronitons—so I hereby retract my previous statement. smirk

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

I havent recieved any chrons from my gauntlet but it explains why I am so low in event compared to where I should be if others are.

I am happy to hear all the people that have got chroniton during the event. 400 WOW!!

Currently Rank 16 win streak 15 1 drop of 40.
Last Gauntlet (started Wed 8p EST ended Fri 8p EST) none during event 1 drop of 20 at end rank 17.

I am wondering on the back end is there a spreadsheet that keep tracks of the data (wins, items rank etc)
