Also, we are working to "bake it into the event" so that in the future anytime we run a bonus to XP, the vendor and module will be available as an option for those who don't want the bonus XP.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Eric,
This is great news, thanks very much!

One important point though. please can you try to make the Acute Module NOT require an active subscription? (it did last time). That is, make it available to F2P and Pref players? Throw them a bone why don't you?

Also, a supplementary request. Please give us a slider or checkbox that allows us to reduce our normal Xp gain by eg 25% / 50% / 75% or similar.

All the best.

Good to hear, but it would be nice if this was a UI option instead, like it is in most games. The idea that you have to pay to get rid of a bonus just seems sort of wrong, you know And also if there was a way to reduce xp gained (at leas tin story mode) for those that want to not out-level planets like crazy.

Yay! Thank you, Eric! Great news.

Ah! I knew I was forgetting something. We also removed the subscription requirement from the item.

This sounds like something someone could get now and use after the event to prevent getting any XP at all should they choose.
