Running from Thursday, August 17 to Monday, August 21, a Research and Development weekend event will be back with us featuring several bonuses and the chance to advance your rank in the Research and Development school(s) of your choice!
All R&D packs will give out an extra 25% of the items they currently disperse for the duration of this event. Queue R&D Material Reward Packages (Normal, Advanced and Elite) will reward 25% more R&D Materials and have a chance to reward a Catalyst. If you are looking to advance the fastest possible through Research and Development schools, you should look for Harvest Nodes which will disperse 2 extra R&D Materials each time they are used and additionally reward 10 Dilithium Ore and have a chance to give out a R&D Catalyst during this event. For current open R&D projects, they will reward an extra 50% of the appropriate Research and Development School XP.
