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

Ah shit, opened it on the non 80 alt who participated.  Hooray for an exotic(80) accessory and 20 slot bag but I just missed my chance at lvl 80 exotics/rares (got 62s).  They should have just made all the rewards lvl 80.

did the same thing, and they should have since the character I tried to do it on was an 80.  then I used a black lion kit to try to get a rune off of one and did not receive the rune, so I ragequit for the day.

honestly though knowing my luck I probably would have gotten the same thing on one of my 80s, given past drop rates and knowing how much RNG hates me.

hmmm even though I got rewards last time I recieved another Karka chest in the mail today.... no other exotics, rares and other stuff though.

Free 20 slot box is always nice although I can't really use 2 karka shells since you can only really equip one.

Black lion is 100% to salvage an upgrade..... guessing you meant master kit.

Got 20 slot box, karka accesory, 2 rares and 2 exotics

I got the same and about all I did was participate in the very first part of the event on the first day.  Generous indeed.

Well I did get dc'ed several times during the event but I always logged back in.  I did get to the chest at the end. No precursor, a rare, a couple of exotics I could not use, but the best part was the 20 slot inventory box/shell thing.  So tonight I get an email with much the same.

I am not a big fan of lotteries and things where 99% get squat and 1% or less hit a gold mine.  Oh well, I think everyone who contributed should have gotten a precursor.  I'll take what they sent and liquidate it, a gold and change ought to help keep one of my leveling up alts in fresh gear for a bit.

Note to Anet, yes you can buy me off cheap.  Those 20 slot bags are sweet, best event reward yet to date.

Some players are reporting there getting pre cursors from the karka box's even though they were in the event already and should not even be getting one...

I think Anet are really messing this up....

Very cool of them to do this. I hope they don't do one time events again.

Agree on both counts but I would alter the second part to 'events like the Ancient Karka' again.  The Mad King busting down the lion statue was cool and the dungeon remained up for people to run it who couldn't be online to witness it.   I think that should be more of a model for future one-time events.

I did join in the pre-event. Only because of the crashes/rendering issues and dc's i didn't complete the whole one time event. I wonder if i get a chest. Or is it only for those who where participating in the final part of the quest chain? Then again, some people are saying that the got the chest without even participating..

If they can't manage to see who was in and who wasn't (and who got box and who didn't at last event) i prefer they give the box to everyone.

There are millions of accounts.
Chill.

If you have not gotten it tonight (friday) send a ticket.

Okay, so people complained about how they took too long to give people item. Now they complain that  people that did not even took part of the event get rewards.

Maybe you should not have shouted about ArenaNet needing to fix it faster then?
The reason it took time was because they tried to find a way to decide which accounts took part of the event and which didn't. Why they quit (disconnect or knowingly logging out) and so on. But noo people wanted to get the stuff NOW, and here we have the situation.

15g+ value of rewards sure doesn't make few buggy quests a horrifically painful experience either.

Yes i totally agree with you, dont show up if u dont like it =) By the way, the karka accessory is worth 50g of you buy the shells off TP, thanks anet =)
