Anyone transitioning from to should LEAP on this one. Patch is about a million times better for a transitioning player than some elektra covers. 2 yellows are the only covers I ever bought with real money in the game, and god damn was that money well spent.
I hope I'm reading that wrong and survival isn't just a new kind of node that will be included in same-old-same-old story events. Gotta love how they didn't even answer the question directly in their own PR article...
No, week long PVE's are much too long. 3-4 days is ideal, with two running every week.
And more directly on topic, it would be great if anyone who has already joined the event could post information about the format. Is it a standard pve with recharging nodes and 2:24/3hr timer, or is it something different?
