Once in a lifetime opportunity to experience lag like you've never lagged before.

The event is just as broken as previous events. I wont even bother finishing it. We where pushing the ancient karka when faced with the infinite loading screen... only to join another overflow where the event had barely progressed at all with the demos. No thank you. I dont have all night for this "once in a lifetime" event. I have a life.

A broken shit-piece of mind*. These events gave you nothing either so if you skip it you miss NOTHING. A complete waste of time and armor repair. I died from the spider-sperm they spewed out and their rolling which insta-down and kill you. Everyone just dies and revives.
Utter fail, anet. Utter fail.
+I had to sit in loading screen for 15 minutes so I lost the only rich-orichalcum node I've ever seen. Yeah.

This event is a sad failure.

Why... just...

In few words: Culling + lag + insane zerg + bugged mobs.

I don't think i need to say more.

I think the mechanics for this are great and prevent faceroll zergs, you actualy have to avoid stuff and focus target. Downing the tree, the rocks, blocking the vents. all cool cinematic big boss stuff. Biggest gripe is the lack of loot,. Nearly none of the mobs drop anything. Really hope there is a chest or something at the end. Need to have some kind of reward for a once ever event

For me it is just fun to be part of a bigger one time event!
Takes some time, it is not the best thing i have done in GW2 (major technical problems), but didnt expect much. Still not done with the event. BRB

I wish people that complete it the best of luck. This was a complete waste of time. Frustrating, broken, laggy...all words I would use to describe this. Mobs that are so glitched it's just stupid. I can't begin to comprehend how this passed QA.

This is the very problem I warned people about a month ago. If you continue to say "great job Anet, ignore the whiners*", things like this will get worse. This was a horrible event, it's been broken since day one. On BP I never got to even finish the first days events because sure "you can finish after phase 2 starts" didn't cover the fact that the phase one event broke again during phase two.

Anyway like I said to those that do it, congrats. To me not worth the time. Going to play more AC until it's over.

*whiners== people with completely valid complaints, that are only taking the time to complain because they want the game to be better.

There is a 3 to 5 minute delay on any skill I use, I can't do a thing in this event.

Could be a great event, if not for the whole '100+ people all on one spot spamming spell effects' making it a prolonged faceroll. Anet will have to find a better way to heard/organize the players in these events.

Here's the best part. they *ed up this event so hard, that even players who could care less about oversized bugs and just want to WvW have 1-10s delay aswell. Well done Anet, well done.

I suspect a massive amount of the friends invited during the weekend will spend a lot of money in your shop.

my only grip other than the occasional lag is loot I don't know if I wasn't doing enough damage to the mobs or what but through the entire event I think got 6 pieces of loot drop?

ANET PLEASE introduce FoW and UW again.

Anet:Let's make a multiple hours long zerg, with foes that have big healthpool and an one-shot skill! This will make them happy.

Oh how nice. I got disconnected, and now I can't get back, so I'm not getting the end chest. People are getting really nice loot from it, and now it seems that after 2h I'm not getting anything.

So... apparently precursors dropped like hotcakes from whatever chest this thing spawns. At least on my overflow. :I

Anyone else disconnect in the middle of the event and then relog onto an overflow server where the event is long over?

I actually got a lot less lag than on the previous events. Very little, until close to the end. The 'kill reinforcements' sections were far too long, and the enemy culling made karka invisible half the time until they were rolling over you, but other than that, I pretty much enjoyed it.

Yo ANet I crashed at the end of the event and got nothing I hope there will be something you can do about that?

Well, I didn't have lag problems for the third part - but the event was kinda like spamming 1 and staying away from any mob. But the loot from the chest was really nice. A lot of precursors were in map chat and the tp was instantly offline ;)
