    I noticed a thread in which someone was asking if there is a list of events that will not come back to the game. A moderator said that there is no such thread because the are not sure which events will appear again and which events are going to be reworked. About 5 minutes later i saw a thread in which it was asked if the Sargon event will come back and a moderator said that it won't.

    I was wondering if there will be a list of the events that will not be coming back so players don't have to be waiting for them and saving items from the event that they don't need anymore.

    Hello @DudeFromThePast ,
    Please read our Forum Netiquette and get familiar with it.

    Proper English please
    Please keep in the back of your mind that your web announcement can be read all over the world. For this reason, you should try to use proper English as much as possible.

    Whoever thought they could avoid using the shift key because they think that capital letters are unnecessary in the English language, and who ignore the netiquette as well, make the text just as hard to read as a person, WHO ALWAYS WRITES THEIR TEXTS USING CAPITAL LETTERS, WHICH HURT THE EYES AFTER A COUPLE OF WORDS AND DECREASES THE READING SPEED DRAMATICALLY.

    Missing punctuation can also make sentences run into each other which makes it hard to logically separate sentences from each other making them hard to read (such as in this run-on sentence).

    Also typing and spelling errrors don't exaclty help to incRease the readabilitie of a txt.

    For this reason, you should always take the time to read through the text and correct any obvious mistakes before posting it.

    Those who obviously don't make an effort to formulate their questions properly shouldn't expect others to make the extra effort to answer them.

    It's a good question, mainly because of event items taking up precious inventory space.
    But I think not even devs know which events they want to run again.

    Dark Dwarf Heist will not come back anymore for sure.
    Sargon event was kind of teased some time ago I think, but if it returns, it will be something quite different than before. I'm not sure, but there were rumors of him being somehow linked to the parallel world...

    Currently, Kingshill Sewers is the event that I'd really appreciate to have some info about. I'm keeping many items related to that like progress buffs, essence ingredients, or bits of the sewer valve. These items take up a lot of stash space.

    There have been some events that have been officially retired. Sargon was one of them. It was retired when the Dragan event came out. That doesn't mean that the Devs can't pull out the resources and dust them off and "re-release" the Sargon event down the road. Really, they can do whatever they darn well feel like.

    Some other events were "officially retired" in R214 when they took the event related items out of people's inventories.

    Simply save what you think will help you in the future and sell/trash what you don't, and if an event comes back, then so be it. Me, I just wait for the monthly event schedules to come out and get surprised by whatever they give us.

    Well wouldn't it be easier for the players if they added the events that they think won't make another appearance, and if they feel like reworking it or airing it again just to remove it from the list?

    Dragan - as they suggested a couple of weeks ago, answering to a guy on FB - and ofc Moon events.

    Maybe Sewers - most useless event ever - is still alive. *All* the other events are dead for me, until proven otherwise. No trust anymore in a such rickety company.

    Sewers are boring - just like all DSO events - but at least you can get resistance runes. I'm not saying that alone redeems the event, though.

    I'm kind of afraid the game is really starting to die, as much as I hate talking about the "dead game" like 90% facebook comments do.
    Because there are no events all the bloody time. Just Moons. Winter event was recycled, and if we get Dragan, it will be recycled too.
    Defeat the Undefeatables might never return, we don't know. Dark Dwarves have been scrapped.

    Maybe it's just because we got a relatively big update (in DSO terms) some 6 weeks ago, so there is still no time for making new events. This would be the good news. The bad news would be that the game is not making enough money, so no new events are being planned anymore.

    And I assume there is nothing new on the test server?

    Here! Here!

    And this needs to be applied to character names as well. We need underscores and mixed case so that our character names aren't a bunch of run on unreadable strings.

    As an example, I give you one of my "other server" characters, who's name is "Youcantreadthis", as proof. Now most people would take that name as a weakling being "You can tread this", but they would be wrong. The name is actually "You can't read this", and proves my point. It would be much more readable if it was "YouCantReadThis" or "You_cant_read_this". This would also eliminate much of the _can't type that special character_ someone used to make thier name more readable and thus less searchable.

    Sargon - gone.
    Desert - gone.
    Dark Dwarves - gone.
    Invasion - seems to be gone.
    Infested sewers - probably regurgitated at some point.
    Defeat the undefeatables - more than likely regurgitated again
    Dragan - most likely regurgitated again.

    New moon / Full moon / winter / materi / exp / wisdom - seem to be the only guaranteed events.

    Seems like.......none at all? Aside from Solstice we have had nothing November-Feb. 4 months without a real event? BP must be working on some Creatress Tear storm event like the player base has been begging for.

    I'm scratching my head trying to figure out where Dragan has gone.

    I realize the devs are scrambling trying to fix all the bugs they introduced with the recent update but it would have been kind of them to recycle some old event. Anything, just to pass the time, instead of these lame ones. I hate to be so pessimistic but was really hoping to see something.

    I'm watching some old vids on DSO YT channel. In case you haven't been around for long enough, or in case you have but forgot, this is how they used to tease new events and stuff 4 years ago. I luv it.

    Anyway, just like Aslandroth said, at least some recycles would be fine, until they have the time to make actual new events to replace the ones that won't return. Materi storms are not events really...

    But maybe there's no plan for new events? I'm actually confused, because the fact that there haven't been any in a long long time, old or new, suggests that there's no intention to run this game for too long anymore, because no events lead to bored players, and bored players leave and games go down the toilet; but at the same time, there's been the December update which is relatively big, and that would imply the development of DSO is far from being finished.

    Aha! Just when all hope seemed to be lost, there's a roadmap for 2019. Nice :]

    "Start" to die is a really too optimistic picture of the situation. I would be happy in case it'd just giving the first signs of sickness... while the current status is heavily compromised.

    Anyway yes, you are right... at least at Sewers we obtain some res rune. I was talking only under the point of view of the fun that we all surely feel when playing a such kind of event.

    In the end, will there be a formal opinion on the events. When exactly will Dragan come? And whether it is already decided, which events are stopped. And on the other hand whether new events will be made because of the stopped ones.
