I'll take it. I left after like 2 hours of what seemed to be running in circles with events and no final chest. I chalked it up to me leaving early but thanks Anet. :)

So this is a reward for people who attended the one day event, but were unable to get the final chest reward... and it's being given out to people who never played the event as well as those who did play and have already got the rewards? Yep, that makes sense... GG Anet.

Suppose it's easier to give everyone a reward than having to check the server logs and such (much like the demise of the Xunlai Tournament House in GW1).

Anyone know if the chest rewards adjust to your level?

Should characters who aren't at endgame wait and open it at 80, or does it give level 80 loot regardless?

It seems to scale to the level of the character that opens it... I was chatting to someone ingame who opened it with a level 60+ character and he got two level 62 exotics :(

Good to know, thanks.  I'm in the same boat.  Level 65 character.  Best to wait, then.

and why would we want to never again see a one time events? Gravely underestimating number of people who would show up and/or software/hardware errors first few times does not invalidate entire concept of one time events. 15g+ value of rewards sure doesn't make few buggy quests a horrifically painful experience either.

If you do not like them, do not show up, people who do will know that they will be rewarded despite possible technical difficulties.

Not sure if it's going to everyone, or just people who started the quest chain, but I've also received the chest.  I wasn't expecting anything as I didn't take part in any of the one time only parts of the event, though I did complete the quests as far as was possible with the bugs.  Good to see Anet are looking out for people who weren't able to participate due to timezones as well, us Oceanics were feeling a bit left out ;)

It's a two part problem.

There's the technical problem of supporting the mad rush of artificial player concurrency in a small area.  It's possible they'll figure out how to fix this.

The bigger problem, IMO, is a couple hour event on a game that is supposed to be open to a wide range of people around the clock.  It suddenly turns the game into the equivalent of a demanding child.  "Play with me when I want, or I'll take my toys and leave!"

Week long events are great.  Even 24 hour ones are reasonable.  Couple hour or less doesn't belong in a game that serves players around the world.

I participated but missed out on the end reward............I was very happy to receive my reward via the mail system today. I got the same type of rewards as well.

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.

I can confirm.
I got DCed at the last event about 2 hours past the very start
I just loged in and got a mail with Karka chest
Got 20 slot box, karka accesory, 2 rares and 2 exotics
[/quote]

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....

[/quote]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.
