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.

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.

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.

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 ;)

Hey thanks ANET for handing out good gear on the ONLY event I had to work during. Thanks once again for making it a 1 time event for only people that have no jobs or school and can sit around and be anywhere anytime you want them to be for your *ing event. Worthless ANET good job douche bags I wouldn't mind a free 20 slot bag or the numerous other exotics that people got handed for free.

Too bad you could not participate.
Keep in mind however that you are not the only player in the world.

Seeing the amount of people and overflow-servers there were HUGE amount of people able to play.
Had they catered to your specific needs there would most likely have been less.

Monumental design failure. Embarassment of an event. Bugged from the beginning, one time event with legendary precursors as rewards IF you were LUCKY enough to even be able to stay connected.

Never recommending any of my friends get this game, ever again. I'll take my time elsewhere.

*The bad*
-Invisible enemies
-Getting killed in a second by invisible enemies
-Too much lag to dodge massive attacks from the few enemies that happened to not be invisible
-Reinforcements event taking 30 minutes to kill
-Reinforcements event happening twice
-Champion mob at the end of reinforcements event with a million HP... twice.

*The good*
-It was a fairly unique event
-The end loot was pretty sweet... even though I didn't get a pre-cursor

No need to cater to any player specifically learn to have an event that happens more than ONE time during a day. They have dynamic events all dam day in every zone why can't they make this event happen  2-4 times a day to cover all time zones for people and just make people that have looted the chest unable to loot it again just as the champion candy corn chest was during halloween.

Naw thats just too simple lets * a bunch of our customers and just give free exotics to the people who happen to be allowed to attend the event. Those hard working people that can't attend our event can chalk it up to sucks to be you.

I am not sure if it's bannable offence or not, so use this at your own discretion:

You can do the event once PER CHARACTER. So if you wanna log onto a twink and go to an overflow server which hasn't completed it yet - it works.
