    I am relatively new to this type of gaming environment but must say I do enjoy playing. I tried an event recently which was exciting and a good break from the quest however, having to spend all of my adermant to purchase a pass to reenter the area only to have the quest send me back out turned me off completely. It was a straight up ploy to get cash. I urge you to re-address the manner in which this operates. Maybe a ticket can at least complete one quest or grant more than entry.

    What event are you referring to? The new moon? You don't need to spend andermant on those.

    Whats up with the egg openers? I know its a 8year Grind festival but this is too much. The drop of the openers is just bottom low.

    mumble mumble...
    event are too bad but the feedback can be positive IF we'll got 4-5 rune bags from challenge hopimg thst do not contain ONLY 1 rune random like rune bag from code you give us.
    But drop of golden pinata is random so we'll got 4 pets and some dragon emote so feedback will be negative at all

    Jesus Christ, what have you done to this once great event? I knew from the feedback on the test server that the event got nerfed but i never expected it that they would make it this BADDDDDDDD.
    Drop rate of phestos openers beyond terrible
    Phestos openers drop only in stacks of 1
    Eggs dont respawn and we have to enter the map from the start. Not like we will have a chance to open many eggs with this horrible drop of egg openers anyway
    Golden pinata does not even have guarrantee drops anymore
    The challenges have not come yet but as far as i know the drop rate there is horrible as well.
    Honestly, i am getting really tired of this EDIT and the only reason im still playing this game is that the new rpgs that many players want to play have not been released yet or else me and many others would have been out of this game since quite a while ago.
    We already knew that this game was dying slowly these past 2 or so years, but looks like the new members of the devs team really came to ruin this game ever so fast.
    Congrats there guys, you managed to do what other members of the dev team havent managed to do, that is to make everything in this game and the game itself crap.

    P.S: Did i say Congrats again for the great stuff you are bringing to the game? Congrats again. Geez, this is just pathetic. We have had enough of you and you still dont get it. Its really sad the game is dying and instead of trying to save it you make it clear you want to annihilate it. Nice

    Dracanian Anniversary Festival, let us celebrate DSO at its most true form: boring, no fun, grind. Cannot really bother to write novels about this event. It is terrible. I feel completely torn out.
    1 opener - 1 egg would be more decent. But no, destroy us to maximum.

    I have never played this event before. I was looking forward to play it, but I feel tormented.

    Playing solo arena event on inf1 is pretty hard, died 10 times using pink and red ess (i have 32 k damage mage) , 65 k life, 80 crit, and almost 80 resist and armor. Very low drop of items and much time to complete.

    Still dont get it where crystal of truth may be found.

    Continuously Fireworks in cities is really annoying.

    Seems another failed event.

    I played this event last year. It was a grindfest to get enough egg openers to use the drop buffs to the fullest. It was tedious, but at least with enough egg openers you could open many of them within the 10 minute time limit given by the buff.

    I don't even play the event this year. If the eggs don't respawn now, the buff can't be used effectively, I believe, so this will be my second event next to All for One that I'll ignore.

    Why did devs remove the eggs resapwn? why did they reduce the amount of egg openers you get? I think the answer is obvious: they want us to get tired of grinding to make us buy stuff to finish this event.
    But devs are so bad doing their job that they don't realize they need to give us good rewards if they want us to participate and finish an event. And to be honest the rewards of this event don't worth neither the effort to grind nor the money.

    I do not like this event.

    The arena is too time-consuming.

    I just read feedback posts from 2017 Anniversary event. You ppl have not change anything at all. Complaints are the same. What is the point of writing our feedback when you give zero...about it??!

    I am literally dying laughing my [EDIT] of over this arena anniversary event.
    I have a level 55 character with over 4-5 years of playing time and i can't finish a map on normal even with blue essences. (i'd put that crying emoji but it's not available)
    The map is exploding for some reason all the time, theres like billion enemies and i can't even move anywhere, everything is faster than me, one shot kill from every enemy even on normal difficulty etc.
    I don't understand do the developers have some kind of fetish on making us die every minute...
    I never thought i'd play a tougher game than [EDIT], but then there is this crap.

    Okay i and probably we all are more focused on rewards, but did they put some Quizah monster wave in this arena or i was totally bored and didn't notice it, i think it would be nice.

    I was postponing too long to get cosmetics from this event but since the things just get worst and worst maybe now is the right moment to get em suit/mount/pet etc...:))

    Oh and i can paint whole Dracania from gnob drop ;d

    I really hope the mini events redeem this event. They are celebrating their anniversary, which means that this should be a flagship sort of event. Instead, I'm mostly disappointed.

    Short summary of issues:
    • The "bug" of the eggs re-spawning should be rethought and considered switching back. I've heard plenty of grumbles about this one all day.
    • The drop rate of egg crackers is really low... they should be raining from the sky.
    • If the drop rate of egg crackers doesn't go up, drop the amount you need to open an egg down to 1 so that the drop rate of tokens is more reasonable. I know people who've done 30+ eggs and not gotten one while others have gotten 5 in one PW (5/10 eggs)... Randomness is funny like that.
    • For sanity's sake, Please allow the monsters to spawn earlier if all the mobs in the arena are dead! Or, event better, make fewer mobs per wave. Adding more monsters doen't make it harder, it just makes the event boring and tedious. On lower difficulties, It takes forever to clear the arena. Not because it is hard, but because a lot of time is spent waiting for the next wave.
    • Speaking of difficulties, lets talk about T6 and "Balance." I don't think you guys actually balanced the higher difficulties. Almost all the wave boss monsters and the Guardians in waves 9 and 10 can one or two shot me on Infernal III with their basic attacks, as can the random effects that can drop out of the sky... that is with 115k HP, 65%/55% armor/resistance in Inf III. That is more damage than Herald does with his base attack on T6 and there is only one of him at a time.
    • Also on the topic of difficulties, the higher difficulties are not rewarding. You don't get more CoTs, you don't get more egg openers, you don't get more truncheons... What motivation is there to do higher difficulties beyond higher tier junk items?
    • Why are the drop rate of Dye Spheres so insanely high at Gnob? I'd rather pay 2 truncheons and have a more even distribution than to waste one on what amounts to a 50% chance of being two random dyes.
    • Why are the group runes dropping from Zumpa? If someone is willing to pay 250 truncheons, it is a kick below the belt to give them one of those pieces of garbage. All that does is dilute the pool of actually desirable stuff that could drop from that piñata.
    As said, I hope the mini-events redeem this, because right now, this is not the material that the devs should be pushing for the game's 7th birthday. They should be embarrassed.

    Then you've been doing something wrong for the last 4-5 years. I agreed that the event's balance is off, but if you have a 4+ year old toon that can't solo the event in normal, then you are in no position to comment on the balance of the event because you don't have enough experience in the game.

    This event is just as boring as it was in the past years.Those anniversary maps take too long to finish (around 30 minutes each)....there were a lot of complaints about this in the past and even now and despite all that, our feedback did not matter for BP always . Lower the number of waves, lower the number of mobs, let only the main miniboss appear each wave ....just a few pick.

    One run from begin till end take 25-30min to finish :oops:
    Last two wave, let say the 'boss' can kill me with 1hit on painfull --> and i have 60k hp and good defens. Even in pw on inf1 i can't die so easy, here in arena on painfull, anyone can die easy ..what the f.... o_O
    But most disapointed on this anniversary event i am bcs 30min is to much for one run in arena, i make five runs yesterday and take around 2h 30min, if you can belive me, almost i sleep, sometimes my head was so close to drop on keyboard and yes is not a joke.. :)

    Is it a policy at bigpoint to take enjoyable events and turn them into boring Grindfests ?
    2 runs of Anniversary Event and Adios Amigos not wasting my time on it
    The game is so boring people are leaving in groups no one in BP even listens too there players feedback
    Does anyone in BP play this or do they play other games instead ??
