See here lies the problem with one time events.

Many people couldn't be there. Some where "gasp" a sleep. Some had to be at family events. 

Then you have the laundry list of people that got kicked out mid event.. Some of those couldn't log back in. If you did log back in you may not be in the same overflow... You might end up in one where the event is already completed.

How do you think those people feel about this "one time event".

Freeloading mooches are the scourge of the gaming community.

GW2 is about the World.. Not the individual Player.. I think this is the route all MMOs should go... It makes the world seem more alive and real. It increases the immersion that the world truly does live on without everyone being there.

This event was awesome. I was there for this one I missed the one time event on Halloween. To me it was great hearing about that one.

One of the problems I have had with MMOs since their beginning is how Static they are.  They feel many times so Lifeless. These events change that.

EQ1 used to have GM ran events back in the day. They would be one time events. If you were there that was great. If you werent you would hear the stories about them, it really did add to the immersion.

Today the players of the world beat back a threat, that threat is gone. In most MMOs like RIFT.. Its look we beat back the threat. 30 minutes later ohh look the threat is back.

Kudos to Anet. As long as they also continue to put lasting updates in as well. I see these as being great.

Ohh and I did experiance lag a few times. Overall it ran well. I got dropped once during the event. IT was laggy right before the drop. I logged back in and the lag was gone. IN 2 and a half hours I probably got 5 minutes of laggyness.

Loved it, no lag, no fps drop like on phase 1, It was the best event i have ever done in any mmo, pure 10/10. Can't wait for more events like this. Thumbs up A net !

I was able to use the exotic short bow, exotic boots and of course karka accesory and 20 slot karka bag.  I think the only things I coulnd't use was a hammer and some gloves which were both exotic I believe?  Maybe rare?  Outside of the loot thought you guys are right, it was a boring button mashing fest with mad lag for 2+ hours.  Had to do over again though considering the loot, I would.  :)

I can understand why you guys are so pissed but think about it. Which other MMO tries to make large scale events like this? I still remember the opening of the Gates of Ahn Quiraj in WoW. These sort of epic server wide events should happen a lot more often in MMO imo. These are the things I wwas imagining when someone talked to me about MMOs for the first time. True, this one might have been buggy and laggy but quiting a game which you otherwise enjoy over this? Also I am guessing if they carry on with these world events they would get smoother and smoother :)

Honestly, I played it and got bored with it. It was a long event. Everyone kept dying and the bosses did not impress me. Seemed like we were spamming keys and the lag spikes sucked. I wasn't impressed with the whole event. I expected, more. So buggy. Halloween was much better.

Anybody surprised about who got bored and who didn't?

I missed phase 2, phase 1 was alright, phase 3 was fun, I had to set my graphics to "Best Performance." to decrease lag. Some had their setting on high and then some just had weak ass computers, eh well it happens. Oh and sometimes it's just server side and then it can be all 3 issues.

 

Rewards where worth it though, some logged off thinking it was karma and that's it.

Not bad for their first content patch. 

 

I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

Yeah,its obviously clear why someone who missed the even would be pissed...cant blame you.

 

Dunno why they couldnt just set the event to an hour or so reset after its initially comepleted.With those who already participated and completed the event prior getting not so great loot the second time around or having the chest be unaccessible.

this is the exact reason I feel not many companes have ventured into the more sandboxy community run type games.. it's the I'm entitled to see and get everything mentality that has plagued this genre for so many years.. I'm very glad anet has stuck to having one-time events.. as long as they can continue to do it often and fix the lag issues it should give people plenty of chances to participate in them.. also making them repeat over and over really takes the feeling away from the "big event" going on.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

When all was said and done it turned out to be pretty good ,I didn't have any lag in the 3rd part but my eyes got a little tired .My only other experience with an event was the first one in Rift where 85% of the folks in my guild (myself included ) couldn't even log into the servers for the end of the event .

This event was neither sandboxy or community run. It was like any other DE/Heart in the game. Just longer and laggier. 

They also seem to do them at the same time, everytime (and that appears to be their plan always from hearing them speak on it). So the people that are left out, will always be left out (of anything that lasts a couple of hours). 

I'd love more sandboxy and community driven features (or an MMO that did those things). This was staged themepark stuff.

Yeah, I can also see it your way too..

 

it brings back memories of vanilla Everquest,when devs would actually enter the game as monsters while running their one time events.It was a mixture of community anger from those who missed it and greed from Sony themselves relegating the events to special servers where you had to pay more.Which meant no more events at all on the normal servers.

that really bummed me out.

 

but,these days you'll be having a lot more people angry if they miss out on something,.we'll see if Anet readjusts or sticks to their guns.

I'm actually surprised to see anyone saying anything positive about it at all.

 

Now that impressions are more mixed, my OP loses the impact I'd intended, and it looks like more of the same old back and forth.   Oh well.

So you created this thread to start some pointless flame war? I never thought you would be somebody who would do that.

Oh well, enjoy being reported.

I loved the final event and everyone on my server (Jade Quarry) that was in the overflow I was in had lots of fun.

We were joking like 24/7, worked hard all together to get through it and some parts were truly epic. :)

Only experienced lag for like 2 minutes in the second reinforcements phase with a lot of us grabbing guns from the weapons crate at the karka camp and others using the mortars near to get the karkas down much faster than in the first reinforcements phase.

Was still playable and with barely any delay at all.

The main lag I experienced was the guild chat that wouldn't respond partially.

I heard from my collegue though that it was frustrating on the EU server he was on, cause they had huge lag and for several seconds/minutes. :(

So they used a skill, nothing happen, were frozen still and then all of sudden all played in a fast forward manner in which they were already dead.

Happy it didn't happen to my server so I ended up with 2 rares, 2 exotics and out of the chest the 20 slots bag and the exotic accessory.

For the amount and type of rewards we got, I think the difficulty and time the event lasted was fair.

The rewards I heard are huge and very unusualy in GW2. A lot of players got precursors for finishing the event chain. Seems like playing regularly is a waste of time. I never got an exotic in hundreds of hours playing. I am not ranting, something feels a little off, tho.

After my server melted at LA event and rest of the event chains were broken i knew it would be better to completely pass the event. I made the right decision.

Where is quality control Anet? seriously!

Yeah I heard about those rewards from my guildies. Thing is, phase 1 and 2 made me so sick of this event that I didnt even want to bother with phase 3. And then they told me about the rewards. Which was just like poking an already open wound. Atm I am not really happy with Arenanet. The only thing that made phase 2 still kind of bearable was a spontaneous party, from players who decided to dance near the ancient karka instead of trying to kill that bugged bastard. Made some nice screenshots.

If they decide not to plan any more of those one time epic events, I won't blame them. I really hope they get Winterfest working from start.
