I don't even want to take part in this rubbish, and I can't even log in to the game to play normally.  Why don't they fix the damn game first before adding new crap to it?

Sundays are the only day I can sit down and have a decent session on the game, not today though.

That's what i was wondering. I just hope soon on a massleaving and a big fail, as deserved.
7 minutes not logging, and was final part, wondering about my reward now. Guess i'm not alone not logging anymore.

It's been a truly terrible experience and I'd love to see people try and defend this.

The game client is unable to gain access to the log-in server at this time.  This is most commonly caused by firewall or router settings, security applications, or connecting through a campus network

Er, no.  It's most commonly caused by you, ANet, trying to add new content to an unfinished game and borking it.

It was pretty awesome for me up until I got the dreaded sound bug (where your sound turns into an alarm clock and you can only fix it by restarting, i.e. losing your overflow server). Finished it without sound.

Got the same bug.
Sinc I already got a d/c before losing all my progress in the event, I decided to simply turn my sound off.
At least the chest reward wasn't that bad.
Still, this was the first time where I set my character at a safe spot, turned auto attacking with #1 on, and went off to watch tv.

Really? I think this event may have pushed me over the edge on this game.

Not 'everyone' got a precursor. Only one person on my server spammed his Dusk, didn't see any others.

We had 4 or 5 people only in my guild of 30 people getting a precursor.

I didn't get a precursor. But I got some useful stuff as opposed my usual grabs of mostly things I can't use.

And I'd imagine it's done on some servers, but not on all servers.

But yes, reward was definitely worth my time. Of course since I'll be keeping most of it, my repair bill will set me back some since I kept dying.

I was in the overflow server, saw maybe 2 dusk and the colossus. I'm actually glad they did this, the prices are too damn high for precursors.

Well, even as someone who typically defends this game, I don't have anything pleasant to say about this event.  It was 2 hours of fighting waves of non-stop enemies, only to end with the whole server (or at least the overflow) receiving crippling lag and eventually being disconnected from the game and unable to log back in.  It wasn't fun even before the lag kicked in and I think the developers need to take this lesson to heart for future events.

That said, if some of you hate the game this much, I really don't understand why you're even playing it.  The event was really bad, but I still overall love the game.

This is total BS. Shouldn't have such incredible rewards for an event their hardware can barely handle the connections of their clients 2. DC'd, unable to reconnect for an hour, next thing I know some gimps are spamming that they got precursors.

Done with this game.

20-second skill delays and periodic disconnects. I really wish I could have been able to enjoy this event but alas.

I loved the event even with the lag, but i crashed 30 mins before my shard got done killing the boss. I was there all the way and could not get in. So i was stuck not getting any loot.

Now that is not a big problem, but the fact you made it easy to get precursor. THAT is a *ing issue. What the hell...

Explain to me why I get a level 55 Trident, and other people get items so valuable they never need to farm for money ever again.

Massive exploit too involving alts and overflow servers. Some people seem to of got multiple chests and multiple precursors.

Sadly my overflow was too slow to finish to hope onto another as they were all done by then but hopefully people got some good stuff from exploiting this, after the Kama exploit we all know that Anet don't punish exploiters

Boring garbage. As I said in another thread, this kind of zerg events was acceptable in the late 90s. Not in a 2012 game. Not when the developers have been bragging about their innovations for the last five years.

Same goes for the RNG bullshit at the end. Did the guy beside me put more effort in the event? No, he was semi-afk like everyone else spamming autoattacks. But somehow he deserved a precursor.

Also, the usual login/broker crash at the end. How many stress tests still needed to fix this shit?


Too much wrong in this weekend, I'm really starting to lose faith. No way I'd still be playing this thing if it wasn't for my group of friends to run dungeons/WvW.

Someone got The Bard on my server.  The best I received was a Spade of the Deep.  The lag was incredibly annoying (as well as the reinforcement parts), but it was worth it for the nice loot, including a 20 slot bag, account bound accessory, and the joy of finally being done with these karka monstrosities.

This is pretty much how I feel. These live events are dumb unless they can fix the lag. I couldn't even farm in orr without rubberbanding on top of the usual undead stun/leash spam.
