That's why I said more or less, plus if this is every other month then waiting for next time to finish is much less of a big deal. It may not be great, but it's a mere annoyance compared to the situation if this is annual.

So instead of putting players with one character at a disadvantage you choose to put players at a disadvantage that try to be helpful and play a character-class that is needed to get something going?
Great choice, great choice...
I have 10 components spread out over three characters right now and I probably won't have a weapon when the 2nd iteration of this event is done...

True but they shouldn't be let off the hook. They need to change the current system and not sit back and think it's ok just because the event will come back soon, though I don't think we'll get another dev response concerning this.

Having multiple alts puts you at a disadvantage in earning just about everything in the game by that 'logic'. Rewarding playing alts is not a disadvantage to others. Terrible reasoning.

Agreed. One doesn't feel rewarded and the rewards feel out of reach. If you wanted all those rewards, how many years would it take to get them? I'm currently tempted to just stop the grind and be done with it.
This game seriously needs to become less grind-centric and more player friendly and pro-fun.

Why didn't you just say that in the first place, rather than the irrelevant post that came first?

And when, exactly, will the vent repeat itself?

This.
I actually feel punished for being helpful and playing the character that is needed. I don't think that's the proper way to do this...

edit:
Here's a little hint:
Give us incentives(like BoL-commendations) to play multiple characters.

I get where you're coming from - that's why the weapons themselves are BoL. You'll be able to purchase the weapon with your healer and mail it to your Sentinel. Or you can earn Components on both characters and get a weapon for each of them in the same amount of time, since the Reputation points are shared.

Yeah, not really.
It takes me at least twice as long if I have to play two characters to actually get something going.

But if I only the time to do one a day, and come on my Agent some days and my Sorcerer other days, I then don't have anything except worthless components?

Edit: I appreciate you coming in to the thread to chat to us, Ms. Sky, but I feel like neither of us are getting our points across and we're talking about two different things that are very similar.
