Agreed, the parts do start quite low but climb steeply as you get to higher levels.

Well just tried it on my own base (partially upgraded) and the news is not good, struggled to take out a grey drone, headshots on SM's barely scratched them, be aware the you get 2 affinities and both need to be activated separately. :(

I have to agree here, The Weapon is a POS and the Grunts on offer are a waste of time.

THIS HAS TO BE THE WORST 3 SECTION EVENT EVER WRT THE WEAPON AND THE GRUNTS.

If this is where GL is going, GOOD BYE

Unfortunately, each of your points are spot on. Game is in decline. But it has been for awhile.

This is just ridiculous, the parts requirement for a level 5 => 6 upgrade is a stupendous 73...

I've opened packs and ran a 24 hour deputy and the deputies parts collected only got me 2 upgrades and I still have 8 to go, with mags being in short supply.

After this one I think I'm out of the 3 stage events for good, and with that very possibly the whole game.

And still StW drops gold, gold, and more gold!!!

Your frustration mirrors mine. We can't be the only ones feeling this way.

I think the demise of Discord reflects everybody's attitude toward GL and the mess they have made of SF.

Running ANOTHER deputy but seeing I only managed 2 upgrades with the last one (and not 5=>6 upgrades either, mid level ones).

They really are taking the game out of reality, and the chat in game shows it...

Well with Supreme Packs missing completely from the game I'm left with no other option than to use yet another deputy, still having 4 upgrades to go as the already run 2 deputies and multitude of packs opened weren't enough to complete all upgrade which is just making the whole game (and GameLoft) a joke.

GL is definitely making an effort to have players use up their Supreme Packs. I've opened about 100, partially due to the 4-day "64% outage" that affected several players. I've never opened more than about 20 in the past.

Two deputies and the 100 Supreme Packs leaves me with just one update left of about 10 parts. A few more Supreme Packs should cover that but it will be a last moment action. Might as well open the in-game packs until forced to open stored ones. Problem is, if there is another outage at the last moment, I'll be SOL on the event.

According to Discord, the Deputy is MIA also. The conjecture is that the GL programmers extended Stage 1 of the event for 2 days because of problems and forgot to extend the availability of the Supreme Packs and Deputy. Completely believable.

Whew! Made it to the end. Oddly, a chip from StW was the final piece.

Except for a high basic value, the SMs are of little use beyond Spec. Ops.. Missing out on the rewards from this event is not at all devastating or game-changing.

As noted, this one leaves me with on incentive to complete. As mentioned, the Squaddie's are GARBAGE and the Weapon Upgrades are a complete waste of resources. Let's see what GL can screw up next event.
Not holding my breath for anything better.

Well finished finally, SP's are back but too late as I had to commit a deputy in case they didn't.

SM's are a bit of a disappointment too, all missions cost reduction of 15%, when gold is hardly hard to come by that's now a pointless perk.

The weapon is still pants although it appears to have the D per M buffed it's still no use on a descent base.

All in a huge disappointment, which is now becoming the norm for all things GameLoft!

And don't get me started in wasted parts, they should not disappear at the end of an event :evil:

Since the event was completable only 1 attack with Matchlock, and that was using a sleeping gas, terrible smegging event.
