Unless I am missing something, you get:

4x plex - 13 mil
and 1 tengu skin

for how many hours of work? 5 - 10? That is less than 1mil/hour.

I don't even fly a tengu, I fly a legion.

Am I missing something?

Maybe don't focus them down and just see what you can work into your daily things and stuff?

Yes they are the rewards, these aren't aimed at older players, again its a new player event, which i'm fine with, the rewards aren't worth my time so i don't give them my time :P

bullchit they are to aimed at older players, young players, dumb players, sucker players and everyone else since they forced boosted everyone in the game. so this event was aimed at all.. and all not liking it one bit

total waste of dev time, ccp had the nerve to take away The Thrill of the Hunt... which was the most useful event ever causing players atleast to log in and get a kill for some free SP... but since ccp rise showed his pretty rainbow coalition looking pies and charts claimed "there was no change in number of players getting active"... well what in the holy cow pucky are these numbers looking like TODAY...

its even worse!

stop the bullcrap dude, ccp needs to be go back and be far more transparent about the issues in this game.. on their own forums, not some backwoods ally reddit all the damn time. Man up, fess up, and get their behinds on their forums and discuss the crap that makes eve look bad with the community!!

don't be skurd

If its for new players, why are there challenges requiring you to fly T3 cruisers and battlecruisers?

Even for new players the rewads are bad.

they expect for some newbie to make the stupid instant purchase of plex to buy the skill injectors just to play the event in a t3 for some funky looking skin.. which in fact will be sold in jita

I hate the damn skin so much im buying the damn thing just to trash it!!

You have to understand what is happening.
To many of the people in control of the game, members of null sec cartels making 260M / tick, while high sec players make 1 million / hour, is the way the wealth distribution should be.

How do I get into making 260m / tick?

And what is a tick?

thats why i made this same thread critisizing the event before it went live after i had decided it was garbage on the test server.

also desmios, a tick is when your wallet updates and you receive cash for whatever youre killing, in this case youre bounty prizes.

apparently smartbombing battleships in npc havens in nullsec and super carrier ratting can produce lots of money that normal players cant match.

The only purpose this serves is to trick achievement hunters into stop making isk.

Maybe if we glamorize and hype this new event, instead of making a bunch of ISK ruining the economy, we can temporarily trick a bunch of dudes into wasting their time and save the game!

Yea, I'm very disappointed in it as well. The drone event was much better, even though I lost 1 fairly nicely fitted cruiser, it was nice to do, this one isn't.

Also, there is some buggy crap going on with it, I went out in my T3 fitted for scanning, scanned and complete several combat sites and did not get completion credit for any of them. I get credit for blowing up the pirates etc. but not scanning them down and completing them.

new player events do not require things such as "scan and complete combat site while flyign a T3 cruiser", unless that new player is expected to plop down a few hundred $$$ for skill injectors, which I doubt even CCP would do as that would drive even more new players away from the game instead of into it.

This stuff doesn't even cover decent ammo costs.

Sure man. New players usually fly tech 3 criusers. Most of them buy Tengu in the first month, right after skilling Venture.
