    Spot on! As a person who only plays low level toons ( the higher lelvels are just a drag ), the arena is impossible, and the rewards are just a joke. Not worth using my blue essence on.... The ONLY uses I get is 1) to help me kill 300 monsters faster for my daily quests and 2) to melt down the inevitable rubbish that drops.

    There you go ... players are on exploit spree.
    I can't play the event ... because I believe there will be a roll back and all my effort would be in vain. (facepalm)

    I'm hoping we see a nice massive ban wave on the scale of the bot ban waves with no exceptions, no mercy, and no returns. People are exploiting millions and millions of andermant worth of gems and jester items from this exploit and there is no way the cheaters who are doing this are thinking to themselves "This is ok and not breaking any rules. I bet BP intended for us to do this." They know what they are doing is wrong but think that they are somehow too clever to get caught.

    I thought it just permitted to gain 5-6 seconds per item when you have 200 ones to use. lol

    To celebrate the Five-Year of DSO, we got poor event in a pathetic attempt to create a festive atmosphere. But to make matters even better, we have received a bug on pinata with gems which massively used by many players. I doubt that BP ban the 50-60% of the players on the server, and we who play fair and who are spending real money, for us definitely worth this words in notice from BP; "Do you feel like donkey". Well, do ya, punk?

    Hi all, love the game and been playing it for about 4 years now.

    First of all, I hate complaining but after this event i must say: Drakensang events are in dire need of redesigning.

    Concerning this event specifically, I don't mind lack of content that much, which is a problem, but as always, amazingly unrealistic prices and farming requirements for awards.
    So the math is: farm at least 1000 cot per day to be able to obtain at least the mount and for that you need, what, 20 arena coins? That's apsurd!
    If mount and costume prices were 50% lower, we would still need to farm a lot per day or per entire event!
    So, basically, this event is made for paying players, free and/or casual players can only get couple of pinatas... All in all, for 5th anniversary, very bad...

    Devs, please understand that even the most hardcore players don't have time to farm 10 hours a day, prizes shouldn't be based on that kind of concept.
    Many games have adopted this concept, EDIT
    I'm not saying you should just give the prizes, but make it realistic to get them because, otherwise, there is no point of playing an event... (unless you're a paying player, ofc).

    For me ( a new player have just played for 1 month), this event is not that bad.I agree that it should be more special as an anniversary event but personally i think it is good for ( lv50) newbie like me. Why? because with this event i can earn 9999 blue ess in about 1 hour. I dont know why there still some people complain how hard to farm enough cot. As you can see the chip arena ticket is easy to obtain, you just need a bit more or less 10 time open egg and it is fast to farm 50 egg opener.I am not a hardcore farmer but i still have 13 ticket in my inventory that i dont have time to run.
    I have farmed with my guild in arena the past few days and it take about 20-25 minutes per arena run, each arena run give you about 800-1000 cot. it means you can earn 1600 ~2000 cot per hour .
    Again, i just say this event is good for new ( lv50) player like me, i dont say it is fun or good for old players who have played this game more than a year. This event maybe boring but it is good for me, it help me earn 9999 blue ess in about 1 hour ( 9999 blue ess cost only 2000 cot if you buy 250 per time )

    I agree with every words you said.
    I really hope this time BP will do something!
    With this exploit it will be a very big difference between players.
    Honest player who work every day for growing up his char will lose out as always... and this "clever" people who use bugs will be strong/immortal (also expert people who is already strong) doing nothing, just exploiting.
    I would also know how people could know bonus codes or bugs in advice, 'cause i can't believe they will find them accidentally. I would think that there someone who tell them everything. This is really bad.
    Celebrate this anniversary rewarding honesty and sending away dishonesty!!!
    It's needed a perma-ban or at least it's necesary that BP will delete everything this people has got with exploit.
    I hope so!

    Totally agree.
    If BP will do nothing there will be a lot of issues in game. People is getting a lot of big gems for free and that's not right! I've seen some player becoming "jeweler" in a few minutes. We'll see a lot of "immortals" in arena.Yuck!

    That's not my experience.
    I play the game for a couple hours every day and only managed to get 4 arena chips, egg openers aren't dropping that much.
    And farming arenas is very time consuming and quite difficult for solo. I know, this is a MMO, but still... Its not that easy to find a good group.
    And, again, people just don't have time to play that much...

    If all I can get from a 5th anniversary event are some blue essences, than it's a miss.

    I am afraid that I too fell victim of my own impatience. I was planning to buy a lot of piniatas after seeing the drops from the test server, and that I did, I bought an andermands pack and foolishly bought 720 piniatas without testing the drop rate first. Well, I foolishly used real world money before seeking feedback from others to begin with, so I guess the fault is all mine. Of course I did not expect that the drop would be entirely random from all the items each shop offers, even though that is what the tooltips and release allow players to believe, but I did not expect it to be *that* horrible. 350 piniatas on gems and about 150 of them where simple diamonds, 50 splintered sapphires and the rest were cyanites and amethysts, with only 3-4 splintered rubies in the mix. Not a single sapphire or any polished tier and above gems. 20 on Gnob, 18 were dyes (lol) and 2 were spheres that only gave draken anyway. At least I got a little lucky with the jester's merchant and I got a pet instead of a few coins or whatever, so it was not a complete waste of my money.

    I really do not appreciate the misleading tooltips and event texts, especially on parts of the game that money is involved. The drop of the piniatas is most definitely not random between all of the offered items like the game states, but rigged between 3-4 items from each merchant, with perhaps 0.001% chance of getting something other than that. It is unethical to lure people into spending money like that and I most certainly will not be doing so again. I already stopped paying for premium months ago and this last experience makes me feel that I really should stop being a fool.

    As for the event itself, I find it to be a complete waste of time. I got a lot of chips and openers, but they are useless. An arena run takes about half an hour, it is very slow, with the end reward being a few items and a piniata. A piniata that will end up being a cheap gem anyway. I can just do a couple of Q farming runs and receive 2-3 times greater rewards for the same amount of time.

    I'm not usually like this, but...

    Wow, what a slap in the face after Allogeneous' justly severe (but unofficial) warning. At least this event will be remembered... as the event that rewarded unethical players with plenty of goodies and punished ethical players with meagre drops.

    I applaud the people who exploited the pinatas. I really do. It's like watching top-notch poker players call the opponent's bluff, only to walk away with a million dollars.

    I feel STUPID, i really feel STUPID , this is how BP is making me feel with no punishment over bug exploit players.... Now these people have tons of royal gems and stuff from Dumpe seller and ethic players none, this is your lesson for us?? You can exploit a bug cause we will do nothing???, But if you do, you are a bad person... that's all??... i don't know if you (BP devs, not forum mods) are conscient about our frustration...
    I feel STUPID.....

    I had hoped so, too. Looks like cheaters are the winners, and all BP had to do to find them was keep quiet about the glitch, load their guns and hang out at the pinatas. Although, the glitchers were still at it yesterday after the warning announcement. Really.

    Next time give the glitchers a little rope, please. It's all fun and games until they hang themselves, then it's just fun.

    Perhaps you could do something positive regarding this fiasco:

    1) ask the community, maybe you can't see how to find the cheaters in your data but they can (I have some ideas on queries which would show the population)

    2) since you have reduced the value of gems to nearly 0 why not have a nice 50 to 75% off sale for the honest folks to mitigate the discrepency in their gems. Cheater's wont care so much since they have already padded their gems illicitly.

    Find it odd that they can ban hundreds of bot users but are unable to look at the log files of each toon that is in the DSO database and punish the cheaters. But then as I stated in the past and got banned for, DSO is run by pure geniuses who are better suited trying to fit square pegs into round holes and now apparently taking the time to go over log files isn't important enough to them. Making an effort to show that they actually do care is also apparently too much work. I left the game for awhile because it was just too pathetically hilarious to play and now I see that nothing has changed as far as crapping on honest game players vs rewarding exploiters. Ban me from forums again lol, I just really don't care.
