- Maelstrom is believed by many to be one of the WORST events released by KIXEYE. The surrounding fleet layout and the carriers and the cruisers' strength made many players leave the game or quit the event entirely.
- Maelstrom is the first event to have a surrounding fleet layout which was first used by the old Alien Hive Fleets.
- Maelstrom is the first event to feature a continuous alien attack.
- Maelstrom was the first event to feature new alien fleets in the form of Greater Unknown Signals, with a new layout putting the Alien Hives much closer together.
- Maelstrom was originally thought to award the Dominion Carrier by some players.
- The difficulty of Maelstrom's fleets was greatly reduced as the event progressed. At first, some players suspected they were made stronger before being certainly toned down.
