Phase 3 yea... had something unavoidable to do today, got home at 2:15 PST and logged on thinking this event would run for the last day of this event, checked out the mail telling me to go check out the epic finale of this event, got over there and found out this ran one time and one time only, looked in my mail again and saw a big middle finger signed "compliments of ArenaNet", so its safe to say this has been a bit of a disappointment.
This was announced ever since the first event announcement. Something like: This once-in-a-lifetime event takes place only on November 18—don’t miss 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.
