Post 2014 Christmas Event: The Scruuge
2013 info for reference

General Information

Image

The Scruuge are a sect of radical idealists, motivated by greed and deeply envious of others. The Scruuge claim that the galaxy is too overpopulated, and directly interfere with trade and government aid programs, especially during busy seasonal trade cycles. Ships are asked to engage and reclaim any gifts taken by the Scruuge if found.

During the Scruuge Event, the following temporary effects apply to the entire Galaxy:
-The Scruuge will sometimes blockade random planets.
-Sending materials or artifacts costs 60 energy per shipment.
-The cooldown for gifting artifacts is reduced by half.

I think you're misreading it. I think you can't use the upgrade unless Thraccti is level 100, not that it changes the level 100 ability. I would be happy for you to be wrong; might make it worth buying.

Edit: Sounds like I might be wrong (glad to be so), it changes the ability name to Scruuge Ttribute II.

Sruugge Tribute II drops the following:

Tribute of the Ancients II-permanently increases the artifact output of a planet by 1 up to a maximum of 3X Mega Rich
Tribute of the Stars II-permanently increases the research output of a planet by 1 up to a maximum of 3X Mega Rich
Tribute of the Elements II-permanently increases the mining output of a planet by 1 up to a maximum of 3X Mega Rich
Tribute of the Void II-unknown maybe 350?

This is awesome, I suggested this a while back this year and it was done. Thanks Dan for doing even more than what I suggested! :)
