This was an exhaustively grindy event. Far more grindy than the even with the Javelin jumpship by far. Used about 1,200 coins throughout the event, 900 of it to repair fleets that died cause of DC escort fleets.
Kixeye thought it would be great to put the traffic routes of the DC escorts right over all of the GOAT's planets for maximum money. Disgusting.
The prizes were worth it however.
