Yeah, only reason I have any Romulan Marks is because of the Winter Event, and the MUCH easier time of getting them through that Eppoh tagging.
All these piddly events for 5-10 Marks at a time isn't worth the effort, and isn't FUN.
Even though I've done STFs to death, at least you can bang out 75-100 in a 15 minute period, get some DIL, and still have a little entertainment/challenge. Scanning 20 of X for 10 Marks, or 20 days of grinding for 400, neither is awarding appropriately to the pain in the ass, and it's NOT fun.
Of course, i've now maxed out both Rep races for my main toon, and have all the Omega gear I care to have. Bought a few Romulan pieces, but not really seeing more that's worth the horrible grind to get in the first place. Am I missing something?
