Wasn't online for much of the weekend, and when I was online for the one time event, I was stuck in Overflow, and my low level (scaled to 80) Ele couldn't hold his own against multiple Karka so I kept dying without getting a res. In the end I gave up
So all in all, I can't say I enjoyed the weekend, but I don't feel like I missed all that much anyway. I certainly didn't expect anything as elaborate as the halloween event, which I thoroughly enjoyed even at a low level. I hope next month's event will be on the same scale

If someone plans their weekend around a one time event and the event does not work for them at all, they have every right to complain about it.
I'm also sure that Arenanet does not agree with the person you quoted at all. The same weekend had free trials. You really think Anet was ok with the impression that last weekend might give to those ppl trying out the game?
Arenanet tries to make money. Their business plan is giving a lot of content updates for people who bought the game in the hope they will spend some extra in their gemstore. And to provide quality so that those same customers will buy expansion packs. They are not a charity.
This weekend completely failed at that and wasted time for many players who only encountered bugs, disconnects , lag. There is nothing fun about a bugged and laggy one time event.

I think people need to distinguish between the added content and the EVENT! The EVENT was an overly hyped utter failure and the CONTENT is mixed.
- bug riddled questline uncompletable for many
- lag/connection issues largely NOT due to players but to servers unable to handle so many players (due to same time zoned servers)
- lackluster in general
1. New zone:
+ small yes, but I actually like that
+ good flavor/looks
+ new crafting mats
- crappy recipes for new mats
- for a lvl 80 zone, crabs have very low drop rates and are way too tough to make it worth ur effort to farm (i farmed my 200 for monthly and not a single rare drop)
- few DE
2. New dungeon:
+ excellent! Clearly the pride and joy of the release
+ 9 mini dungeons within 1 is very good.. Some can be completed in under 15min making it a great way to get in a quick dungeon
- no way to choose which one you want to do (i understand the randomness and like it, but after moving up a level i feel you should get to choose which u want to do for a lower level)
OVERALL, we got a free new excellent dungeon but I honestly think a lot of players would have preferred and been happier that Anet just released it solo, without a bug filled frustrating event.

New zone and stuff to do was welcome, but they failed to fully deliver. Couldnt finish the main lore quests due to bugged npcs. Couldnt attend the launch event due to scheduling it during standard work hours, and couldnt complete final event due to disconnects.

I would have enjoyed the Karka junk if they weren't giant crabs and if they had not reminded me so much of the Zerg. No really, they had the creepy grey webs and everything. Giant crab infestation... couldn't they have just added a condition called "crabs" where your character gets a horrible rash and crys from the lonelyness.
