Lost Shores event rewards being handed out


After the finale of the unique, one time even at the start of the Lost Shores, many players lost out on their rewards due to connectivity and hardware problems.  As an apology, Arenanet has begun to send rewards out to all participating players who did not receive their justified rewards.  This was confirmed on their official facebook account.

Quote

As we mentioned last week, for those players who were not able to get the rewards for the final Lost Shores event because they were suffering connection issues, we will provide rewards for their participation in the event. Thanks for your patience while we worked to resolve this.

We will hand out the rewards via In-game mail today – Quick FYI… it might take several hours to run the script, so do not panic if you do not immediately receive it. ~RB2

Didn't even "crash" the first time around, so I doubt it.

Server logs are the answer.

I understand the server logs but how would you distinguish between a dc and a quit because out of time or a log off to swap chars.  Anyway I already have 7 of the 20 slot karka bags on my main :)  Gotta love switching to alts and getting the chest again :)

I participated in the final event, but left(mapped out in disgust) voluntarily. I just received the reward chest in the mail. It would seem participation was the key factor for reward selection.

Well I didn't really do anything, showed up for 2 stages of the event (first and last) but left due to the nonsense, and I don't really care for game events.  Got the box in the mail today.

Friend of mine was unable to make the final event but did play that day, got the box as well.

I am willing to bet to set things as right as they could anyone with an active account that did not get the chest that day got a box in the mail today.  That would be the best way to deal with it and just move on, on Anet's part.

Just checked my mail.

Was unable to logon for the final event due to server not being able to handle the requests.
No mail so far... Sure hope I'll get something.

Really odd. I didn't participate in the last event at all (timezone issues) and I just got mailed the rewards. I really wonder how they are choosing who they mail to.

between this issue and the game crashing any time I tried to port into the map from LA, I never even got close to the event.

not even holding my breath for the chest, doubt I'll get one and I don't care.  knowing my luck I'd somehow get  level 70 greens out of it.

Looking at replies on the official forums, it seems this might be the case. Or at least a lot of non-participants are getting it.
