    I would like to see DSO taking care about future events, not just a copy-paste.
    Last 2 events I noticed they were copy-paste and you can notice too by watching the rewards of the progress.
    300 gold or 500 gold at the 3rd bar (after many hours of event) it is a bit ridiculous, that was a good reward before CE, not anymore.
    This current event (Riot of Rocketmen) I got a reward the "New Years Bottle" and there is the year 2019.
    Please show a bit respect for players

    I would like to see some BRAND NEW event .. not the same events repeating for years without any major changes .. devs doesn't care because they doesn't have to deal with those events .. but some players might want to do something enjoyable and have fun while playing this already boring & dead game ... can we expext any BRAND NEW events in January? or even in 2021 as a whole? What about reworking all events? New moon, Full moon, Desert of Essences, Defeat the Undefeatables, Kingshill sewers, Easter event, Halloween event, Christmas event, New Year's event, Anniversary event .. you have to rework all existing events in order to keep your game alive .. we will see if you care or don't in upcoming weeks

    Although changes took place during the deployment of DL, the events remained unchanged. Ongoing events need to be adjusted overall.
    1- run length the amount of progress bar would need to be reduced ...After the changes and the introduction of DL occurred by generally extending the time to successfully complete the map and the fight with the boss (then applies twice to the next DTU event unless modified).
    Currently it is not possible to successfully complete the event despite its time .... or the event is conditioned through another entry item which requires additional time effort ...

    2 - the amount of drakens profit from the event does not correspond to its new value established in DL, the same applies to gold and rewards for rarity gems when the royal gems fell to the level of cut gems and is therefore no longer top gems that could be obtained in DL, as it used to be before CE.

    omg I can only imagine how DtU will be with the ridiculous HP on bosses...the game in it's current state already makes you /facepalm, imagine spending 1 hour (just saying) per excruciating circus run to slowly drain HP on bosses only to get a few progress...

    I'm so happy for those of us with 7k+ achievement, it's gonna be lots of fun! *sarcasm*

    Riot of the Rocketmen:

    This event is long and extremely boring, probably meant to be played no less than 2-3 hours a day, but is it a game or a job?

    The only smart thing is the cost of the coat an acceptable price.

    Full Moon: I believe it will be the only reproducible event without going to the boss which is useless!

    Desert of Essences: the sphere fragment drop is 0 so it's a jump event.

    New Moon, another event to be skipped for the same reason as the previous one!

    Defeat the inevitable: is it a reproducible event? at present and given your bad balance of classes it is almost to be ruled out!

    It is my first play of this event, so I cannot compare it, but supposedly it's a copy-paste from last year, including rewards (although some rewards must've been changed, like the royal zircon?).

    + I kinda like this event, definitely much faster to finish because there are no bosses which currently take too much to kill. The fact that the machines are damaged only by base physical attack makes it interesting, suddenly high damage doesn't mean much, and it's all combination of attack speed and specific skills (for me, the best combination is banner with BWS (10pts) and smash (10pts), +those 3 knights who each deal further damage). Not even essences work, which saves a lot. One run takes no longer than a few minutes solo.

    - This event, like any other, promotes grouping with low levels to decrease mob level. I'm not a fan, as it means grouping with players similar in level is worse than getting a low level who can ultimately decrease fatal mob to -5 level of the high player. It also seems players get progress regardless of how low the mob level is?

    - While the event itself is quick and simple, getting entries is the issue. It seems BP either makes entries easy and map farming tedious (winter), or event easy but prohibitively restrictive entry farming (this one). Currently, it takes me 3x longer to farm one entry than to finish the map - bad design. Even with attire.

    - Another negative is the bug in quest, which was apprently known beforehand? Yet, it only confirms that BP will fix only things that benefit the players (I bet that if it was bugged the other way around, giving 2k progress, it would get fixed in a day). Without quest, there aren't any incentives for groups with similar level where some players would run around the map and kill mob.

    + Only things that are useful, are runes and that 10k wisdom. And ofc pets, mounts, emotes that I don't yet have. First three bars are reasonable.

    - Gems are too low (except those royals, but still not much for completing whole event, given the new max), draken amounts laughable. I suggest to raise Draken amounts in events to equivalent of 1-2 runes (say, 10k) for large events, and 0,3-0,5 rune (2-4k) for small events like moon or desert of essences.

    Let me correct you - BP has adjusted (some) events but only to make them even more grindy:
    • New Moon event - progress drop has been lowered
    • Desert of Essences event - drop of dew has been lowered
    • Winter Solstice Festival event - progress needed to finish mini events has been doubled
    • Riot of the Rocketmen event - drop of Professor Jullov's Oiltastic Mixture from event monsters has been lowered

    @couda22 Thanks for adding ... about the event of the winter solstice, I am aware that progress has been increased to complete the progress bar, I have not followed the other events in the calculation. My attention was focused primarily on rewards for progress.;)

    So, the awesome mods have nothing to say about the quest not registering the 2500 rocketman kills? Oh sorry, they're on the prowl for any off-topic posts/pointless rants, but they cannot inquire and relay vital information.

    A comment on Drankensang Online events?
    Let's see: - Julov's lab is a N.a.z.i. I got it!
    Note, accurately, the floor plan of the laboratory is the drawing of a N.a.z.i swastika seen in the mirror. - It will be a subliminal message.

    Let me correct you ... BP has not made any adjustments because BP is not making the game :p
    Instead of hitting on the mods without reason ... use logic.
    I will help you make the event more playable for you without the need of doing the quest.
    Hint: there is a reason the players are looking for low to mid level players in their group in the chat.
    Let us sum it up.
    The Rocketmen are rioting with their brand new "Vergeltungswaffen 2" made in their labs.
    The heroes are like trying to stop them ... but they are actually only after their technology and weapons.
    It must be the Operation Paperclip event.

    There are rumors of a strange bug in the Riot of the Rocketmen...
    strange because it seems intentional like if there are children among the developers
    I can't explain that or I will violate the rules
    In discord you had a section for bug, but you don't solve anything
    You continue every month to ask us the same question about the same events
    you have your database to see how few players complete the events...and you can imagine the cause..
    the answer is blowing in the wind........................

    Well friend, if you're the logic guru, riddle me this. How is it appropriate to be so trigger happy when it comes to hacking threads and posts left and right with an overgrown sense of authority, but be in total silence when people ask and some might even beg for some form of communication between the client and the company (player & devs). Okay, you've not received word from higher up the chain, but hey, show us a sign you at least relayed the info.

    The only "advice" you can get is to 'contact support', which, I don't know how it works for you being a local thing, is not just incapable of offering any kind of support, but even insulting at times and closing tickets just because they don't have or don't want to answer. Try as you might to 'report the support' and you'll find all communication lines are closed.

    I'm quite sure you know that this game is rotten from the ground up, but I sense you took aim for a mod position or something and you're this big defender all of a sudden. You can surely say your piece, but I'm free to disagree. Actually, that may not be true, since censorship runs wild in these forums. Wanna guess who does the dirty work?

    Finally, I'm sick of workarounds and I think it's a decent thing to ask when will the quest bug be fixed and expect some kind of an answer. If I'm in the wrong.. well... sorry and Hail Drakensang!

    What i like most of January is that events are a *** the only one i did were new and full moon, but that i remember rewards are worse than before. less progress and i like doing them cos of the rune of celerity... that i know in December they disapeared magically. There's long time i don't play DtU. and desert of esseces is just a derision compared to the one i still remember.

    The reason why i like this January is because i'm gonna have lot of time free... Thanks BP

    It's wishful thinking that they believe that the game will have any players left by the end of january.

    Hi. This is shameful. They said or wrote on 6th January in: Thank for your feedback: that there will be a hotfix to mend the side quest of the event of rocketment and that it will take longer. now on 7th January in hotfix4 they say or write: side quest removed and they give us a daily quest to give us 4000 progres and drakes, and event it not extended... they are liars...

    Do we still expect they mend something at the end of January? (i need a face of someone barfing here, please)

    See you soon...

    A hotfix is planned for tomorrow....
    DSO priorities:
    - Instead of fixing major bugs in the game, the developers are preventing some players from farming the mini bosses in the event (which does not drop anything special... to be called exploitation).
    Most players who face problems caused by the patch do not even know about this problem.
    - "The distribution of Bloodshed guardians has been improved". For what ? "to avoid a farming spot for exploiters"".
    These Bloodshed guardians must be taken out of the game. The first time the players beat them too easily they received the drop from the chests. Then you strengthened them that the bloodshed farm had become a nuisance. Isn't it better to play without Bloodshed guardians and in the end to receive a level-specific chest next to the allready common chest?

    When do you plan on fixing the other 1000 bugs?
