I would like ANET to improve the way dynamic events are monitored, either in game or create a web page that would track them. I say this because i like doing a variety of events rather than sitting in cursed shore waiting. So i waypoint around to different areas in each zone that i know have fun events. This is starting to get very pricey though, and if i walk to them i usually miss out on half or all of the event. Personally i would like each event to be visible on the world map as you enter a zone, but i know this may be unrealistic for certain computers. Which is why i would like the option to increase the range on which DE’s become visible. This way if you want to be able to see more DE’s in the area you can, but if it slows down performance you can turn it off. I would like to know what others think about this.

Also I believe in the beta ANET said they would create a mobile app or website that would track the events in each zone (if im wrong please let me know, if im right does anyone know the site/thread it was posted?).

What they really need is an app for that.

I mentioned this a few times on the official forums.  Hell most of the time you can't even see event markers on the map you are on when they occur, the best you can hope for is a message on the center of the screen reporting "New event nearby", look at map and nothing....

Just give them some time?

However, sometimes the npc will approach you with waves, talk to him and you will get the happening DE location.

^ I love when that happens. "Do you have a moment?" Well, since you ask so nicely Mr. NPC, I guess I'll save your village.

I do hate that. You're running along and you get "New Event Nearby" and then open the map and as you said...nothing!

They prefer to employ more forum moderators to hide away the criticism and negative feedback posts, fixing the actual game is lower on their priorities

I'd prefer if they monitored the events and reset them when they are bugged, instead of letting them remain bugged out for weeks.
