Well, played from the start until the "push back reinforcements in the lair" just before last boss for almost 2 hours with massive lag and d/c. 1min lag for casting spell. Quit before i send my mouse into my screen. Result: No mail today.... great...

People really need to chill a bit.
The mails are coming, but the amount of mails sent is quite huge, so it will take time.
If you have not gotten a mail this evening (friday) send a ticket. Simple as that.

I got nothing...I guess going to the karka event in Lions Arch and trying to kill Karka, but being unable to do much of anything due to severe lag doesn't count as trying to participate.

Thanks much Anet.

Got nothing the first or second time around, and support says all rewards have been mailed already. Guess the sound bug hit me at just the right time that I wasn't in the game for the very finale, and that counted...

Well, good luck to those who got them. I got over my sorrow a while ago.

EDIT: got my reward in the second round now. Guess Anet did listen to those who did participate but missed rewards due to bugs. Got a Hyperbeam in it.

I hope it's that it just hasn't gotten to me yet, that'd be pretty awesome. I was under the impression that it was all done.

P.S. I'm 34 :P

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.

People still seem to have difficulty grasping the idea that it is possible that an MMO such as this does not center around them and that they can Very well miss something by not logging on during one particular 4 hour window one day. That does not invalidate the idea of one time events. If your "one time" event starts several times during a 24h period it wouldn't be quite the same... not to mention the idea of exploiting the rewards 4+ times and/or multiboxing.

And people still seem to have difficulty grasping the idea that customers who paid the same entry fee would like to have reasonably equal access to content.

There's a strange twist of logic here that says people who say content should be reasonably available to the entire population are asking the game to center around them, while people who defend content that is regularly available to a portion of the population (and the same portion, since the time is consistent) are somehow on the other side, which you would expect are people who aren't self-centered and are looking out for the player base as a whole.

Selfish would be asking that they move their small window to a time that suits me.

There are a lot of different ways things could be made more accessible that don't involve repeating the same, open world event 4 times over a 24 hour period.

It basically comes down to a design decision.  Do the benefits of developing limited content for a portion of your population outweigh the problems?  And then, to sharpen the point, giving out rewards for those who are able to attend.

I believe the benefits are outweighed by the negative aspects.  Having one time events that always happen at the same time creates a second class of players who are going to receive less content regardless of how much they invest in the game.

So far, the only thing I've heard people say in defense is that one time events are cool.  In theory.  If they worked.  And only for the people who are available to attend.

A one time cinematic wasn't too bad.

A one time epic boss fight with sweet loot, however...

I for one will not look a gift horse in the mouth. Thanks Anet, for trying to deal with some of the issues from the rewards of the one-time event.

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.

still havent got it

Hello,

Thank you for updating us regarding the recent delivery of the Lost Shores reward chest. We are currently investigating some reports that some reward chests were not properly distributed. Once we have completed our investigation, we will update your ticket with more information.

I just got one, I was surprised because I've been playing for ~2 hours now and it just appeared in my mailbox while defending a tower in WvW.
I couldn't participate in the ancient karka event due to RL problems, but I did the previous phrases. It might be a bit unfair for those who attended in that laggy mess, however I think it's nice from arenanet to give rewards to those people who were left out. It's not like we were lazy and didn't go there on purpose. (well at least there're quite a few people who wanted to attend but couldn't)

Though I didn't get that good stuff from the chest, I'm happy now as I know I had the chance to get those precursors/named exotics. Got 2 rares that I salvaged (0 ectos from them) and got 2 exotics that I sold for ~2g each. Oh and of course the 20 slot bag that everyone gets, it's great that I could save ~12gold :)

I got the chest. Checked my mail this morning and there it was :). Got 2 exotics, 2 rares, the ancient karka shell and the 20 slot bag.

I also got the chest this morning... I did most of the investigation events (maybe 70%, since the rest was either bugged or too late) and got a frozen loading screen just after the first ancient karka tree stage (since the following onslaught of karkas wiped everyone and we had to respawn). After that, I got into an overflow where the event had barely started (at the mouth of the hive). I gave up then.

So its very nice to get the chest. I honestly didnt expect it. I wonder if they filter it by having participated in the first engineer event, or when the ancient karka ran away? Or maybe the investigation.

And ANET still seem to have difficulty grasping the idea that we ALL pay exactly the same amount of money for the game and it’s totally pathetic everything to be centered around their beloved fellow Americans...

I dare you ANET! Get out in the market and ask new money for an upgrade and then we‘ll see WHO IS THE DADDY!!!

Just got my ingame mail with karka even chest today, thats 3 x rewards I have now since I did the event twice and now got rewarded again :P

I did d/c alot in the event so maybe thats why they put me on the list? No idea.

Ty Anet. 3 x 20 slot bags, 3 x karka shells, 6 exotics and 6 rares, salvaged for a crap ton of ecto's and 5 gold's worth of runes and sigil's. :)

No pre cursor though :(

I love how you apparently know 100% of the numbers when it comes to this.

Based in information on these and the official forums about 1% of those that should get the items have not YET gotten them.

Making up numbers just makes you look silly and people won't take your posts seriously,
