    Again DtU, another braincell lost in the way. I would like to know why you did not followed your roadmap, as it seemed like you wanted to bring back Big Game Hunt event, maybe reworked, and finally we see its not Big Game Hunt coming but another DtU this year...
    Can players know the reasons why the team does not fit to their own roadmaps or ideas and just ends spamming the same 2 events non-stop for a year? Players deserve more respect and consideration.

    I agree with vampiro, I am not thrilled either to always find the usual 4 events repeated tirelessly every month or so. As if they were the only ones who still survive. Every time I just can play them less and less, and I get less and less in there. Boredom and misery prevail now.

    This is the last time devs can be excused: we know, big jobs are looming, and November will finally be the month of the CE ...... or it won't ???

    Striving to believe that it can go online respecting the announced date is not really easy, and even less so if you see that New Moon would be announced for the next day and immediately after Desert of the Essences. It really makes me think.

    Such two events, which no one will be interested in considering the "infinite" innovations introduced in the game a few hours earlier, with new levels, new challenges, etc., but above all with technical problems of all kinds that no one hopes for but which we all strongly fear ... mah.

    I will certainly be wrong but I think that such a calendar, however poor it may be, can be the prelude to a postponement of the CE.

    I completely agree with Vampiro and Javah, needless to say that inserting an event the day after the release of the EC seems to presage a further delay of the same, and not keeping my word on inserting the BIg Game Hunt event, says a lot on the seriousness of the company ... DTU another time ??? what an agony :(

    I have been searching the forum but couldn't find an official statement regarding when the CE comes life (or life on the testserver).
    Or is there and did i just miss it? :rolleyes:

    As you maybe have noticed, they don't like talk or write too much.

    From italian forum i learnt they just said that CE won't be in TS within October, at the contrary to what they announced a while ago.

    The team forgot about the forum because "there are way more players using discord" so forum users are now not important for the team, that's not only disrespectful but unproffesional :)
    They don't care about giving 0 information to 100 players if 500 are gonna be informed in other media, instead of just updating and posting all the news in every media.
    Honestly, I also want a job on dso offices, do nothing but get paid.

    There is not 500 active people using there Discord Channel maybe 20-50 that always talk to get points.
    There is one thing in there Discord the Dark Legacy Post.
    This should be copied into the forums.
    Our CM's are absolute garbage. There live event thing caters for a minority of players in the game.
    The people posting on there Discord Channel are posting the same assumptions they have put in the forums before hand.
    This CE has not been released on TS yet, for those of us that been around a while , 1 of 2 things will happen
    1 It will be delayed ,
    or 2 They will rush it and totally **** it up.
    My guess with DSO from there previous efforts is #2 :)

    A lot of things should have been posted on forums but never did.
    R244, CE puzzle leaks and a post with the Dark legacy FAQ existing on Discord, the existance of a survey for different game aspects like PvP, even the bonus codes should be officially posted on forums. Right now players are doing half (actually more than half) the broadcast work just because dso team doesnt even care.
    A guy who's on Discord have to tell their friends the info he got from there cause its not gonna appear on forum, there are lots of players who know nothing about whats the expansion bringing because they just look at the forums and have no social media.
    The truth is forum is a free tool for players which needs no installation or login to see. I'll say even more, what about the recruitment of new players? A player who's searching for a new game to play isn't gonna join a discord server as the first move, forum says a lot about a game and this is just abandoned like Sargon castle, 0 attractiveness for potential players.

    "It just takes longer", like... how much time exactly? :)
    Ok, 9/10... still no official post on forum with this info. Seems like its not just "taking longer", just say it: we dont care about forum.
    This pic shows 2 things.
    1-Your plans never get in time.
    2-You posted an interesting FAQ about whats coming exclusively for discord users, on 16/10, 15 days are not enough to post it on forum, it takes longer, right? xD
    Would be funny to see the post once the expansion is live. DSO trolls.

    If you're asking forum readers - the answer is NOTHING!

    I mean, there is no "discord button" in game or front client page but forum's instead (both disconnected from a player's acc for a while).

    Twitch isn't something new in dso world, same as other social networks but forum should be place where all infos goes first, but maybe I'm just too old to understand new "hang outs" ....

    btw - "The end of October" ended so I'm asking - why is it so hard to inform us what's happening with CE?!

    We understand that all dso team is working hard but I'm tired of not being informed!!!

    I can understand discord is faster in this aspect, BUT this doesn't mean ignoring the forum readers that actually don't use discord and have no other via to get the game info!
    That's just lying and that's what is wrong with this team, they pretend all is working fine when it's not, and if you ask for a bit more respect you are tagged as "undesirable" "hater" "toxic" person, instead of just working better they prefer to attack their own players.

    It's ok, you can immediately post something on discord right at the moment it happens, but come on, 16 more days to post it on forum (and time is still passing) is not a coherent thing, team has no intention of posting relevant info on forums and that's wrong.
    It just takes some more minutes to do the forum post, not 2 weeks ;)

    The last recent releases sync adverts and patchnotes were even posted AFTER the syncs, once the new release was actually live already. What the...

    One of the upcoming events is:
    Gnob Offer - Stormball
    05.11.2020 at 00:00 - 06.11.2020 at 23:59
    Btw this isn't a real event!

    Why not doing something surprising: just bring back this event for lets say 1 week!
    Why wait till the next world championships football.
    There is no chance the same teams will qualify as in 2018 (was it in 2018? I can't remember), so this event is only gathering dust in the digital archives from BP!
    Let's be honest the Gnob offers are always wrong: too much drakens needed, useless stuff or things u already have.

    Would be nice for new players (do we really have them?) and could be more fun as all the repeating events.

    With all the loading screen hang ups, is there any chance we can get an extension to Ghost Festival & Return of the Dead? It's especially annoying as this server issue occurred on a Sunday, where I would actually have more time to spend playing all day.

    I feel kinda disappointed. Where is an event connected with CE? Remembering how they introduced Myrdosh I had a hunger for an even better introduction to the biggest CE ever.

    As a returning player from the old days my inventory is filled with event items you needed to get to places and etc, but all of their descriptions are this item is no longer needed. Did they permanently remove all of those events?

    You people still don't understand :)
    It was all planned to be this way so they channel out the players on a platform where they can control them all because the forum is managed and maintained by BIgPoint with their own rules and mod teams ... Jesse and his friends can't take full control over it.
    Lets just recall what CM Clayton said:
    He is American he has no reason to be using other language forum ... but he was led to believe that is the right thing to do ... by the people who were his "advisors" at that time ... and later took over his position :)
    In short - they were telling him "we can't let only English speaking players have their thread because it is not fair to other language forums".
    And where are all language forums located now? --- right on EN Forum.
    And what language is official on Discord channel? --- right the English language.
    So what about "unfairness", climate change and human rights? They are not important now ... and they were never important.
    It is more than clear that there is no future for the game with this community team. The gap between "the saints" and "the infidels" is widening day by day, the game can't take it and the person who is having a role to be managing the community has no capacity to do that. The new game content is not a big deal ... players will accept it sooner or later ONLY if they are in good terms with the people from the other side. I don't see that happening any time soon.
    And no you won't see any info on forums because they don't want you to read the forum.
    If it says item/s no longer needed just discard it/them.
    Not all events were discontinued but some of them are using different items now.

    @Jesse your live Twitch event is a great one that reaches the whole community.
    Shame half of us are asleep or at work.
    Your quote in Discord ;"I know how to reach my players "
    Yeah right mate you sure do :)

    This post is drowning in so much sarcasm that it should have been all red letters. :) ... ... Except "Jesse"'s name. That should be green.
