    Speaking just for myself, and everyone who has done at least one run in this event; I don't think we will be doing Dracaty's Cheer over this one.
    I like the design of the arena, as it is something different to look at but if this feedback makes it back to the developers I would like to ask WHY, after the worst DTU ever, where players were forced to do mind numbing grind for hours and hours in excruciating, would you immediately do another arena event? I like going off on adventures, not repeated wash, rinse, repeat ad nauseum type of events. I get that they have their purpose when a developer needs to release something quick and dirty to make it to the end of the month but this one guys, is just really lazy.

    It is also very greedy and is another example of how little you respect your player base. I am a premium member and I appreciate being able to buy the consumables with gold, but you should not cap it. I don't have any realm frags left because I had to burn them all on the DTU but if I did, I wouldn't want those to be capped either.

    One thing that would seriously help events like this and limit the negative feedback is allowing people to farm the consumables (essence, frags etc) year round, or at least for a minimum of 30 days before it starts.

    Also the White wolf as a proress reward is lazy, and stupid, and annoying for those of us that earned it in the traditional way. Since you regurgitated the same old bosses and painted them gold, why not just do that with the wolf? There is simply no imperative for me to finish the progress for this event. I will do a few runs with the free passes and that is about it.

    Final verdict, only a moron would spend money on this event, and I feel myself becoming a halfwit, just by spending a little bit of time doing so.

    Thanks BigPoint, you guys are just the best :)

    for a few years I thought this game was the best ever, now I hate to logon because I am afraid of what I might see has changed.
    the event this thread is focused on has really showed me what the developers want, not what will keep long term players involved or even wanting to log on.
    increase the realm fragment drops there are way to few to do all these event's and complete them.
    I get that you need to make $ but for me to invest more here you will need to make a real effort to make the game more fun instead of making it a 12 hour/day job.

    Testimony of a stupid player
    Since i heard about Stellar Gold event i became interested in one single thing: the new pet.
    I farmed the first day using all of the gold and realm fragments entries. There was zero drop in pet.
    Second day i started over and i finished all of my entries for the day and my personal resources were depleting. I had to farm for hours to get more gold so i could prepare for day 3.
    Day 3 gave me the same result, no pet and my resources were down to 1000 gold and 200 realm fragments.
    Today i decided to compromise and buy the event attire the 22 euro cape because i was becoming very frustrated.
    My sole hope for the cape was that it will drop event entries from santinels in dungeons. The description says that it does that. First santinel dropped 3 entries on infernal 3 and i farmed additional of 5 hours (dozens of santinels) and i dopped one more entry. So i have the grand total of 4 entries after 5 hours of farming. I understand that drop is random, and my personal drop is pathetic...but what is wrong with the cape? is this how its supposed to work? 4 entries in 5 hours of farming? I can only assume that the first 3 entries were a bonus so you get 1 entry per 5 hours of farming?
    If i can't get anything with hours of farming and with money out of this game, why should we keep playing?

    The event is obviously a shakedown, a scam. There are no new monsters, no new maps or quests with new boss at the end, for our little heroes characters to adventure on. Is just a way for players to buy gems. Instead of buying them in the shop, now they buy Cosmic chest keys and then go and kill three mobs and open the chest with big gems. It should be called by its real name: a sale event.
    There are those events in this game when, for a period of time, the gems have a discount in the shop. This is one of those events, only a bit more fancier.
    All I can say is: Thanks for the free entries, the 3 keys and the free gems I got with them!

    This "event" shows the lack of creativity and the small amount of effort the development team put into it.

    - Gold Fairy was the only reason I did it and have to say the way they implemented is plain stupid, I had to do 81 runs with my ranger and 151 runs with my dwarf to get it while others got on their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 12th etc runs. Gold Fairy should have been the end reward instead of the White Wolf then players could have decided if they really want it and/or can afford to get it (same chance for everyone).

    - The drop of Cosmic Chest Key is also awful low (2 in 81 runs and 4 in 151 runs) and most of the time the reward is only a polished gem even though you have a chance to get radiant or perfect gem.

    - The rewards in the progress bar are also quite poor considering how much you have to invest into it (gold and/or RF and/or andermant).

    - The grind factor is priceless especially that lot of grinding was reuired in the previous DtU event as well.

    Oh, you have been scammed.

    And yes, your last question is a very good question, that BP and its shills have yet to answer.
    In the end, we play this game to get loot, especially good loot, we farm to get loot: they have already removed a reason to farm, when they implemented this trashfire of a pvp system, but now they are removing the satisfaction of looting from the farming.

    200 circles I save it, the pet did not fall. For something else the first one, the second, tenth, in twentieth circle yes, for somebody many times. For me after 200 circles nothing. Pathetic seriously.

    84 runs so far. 31,000 gold. 500 realm frags. Cost of 1 key in shop. 3 keys in bonus.

    0 keys dropped. 0 pets dropped. 1 radiant cyanite, 3 polished from chest (along with lockpicks and stellar essence).

    Tonight I finish the first bar with my next 20 runs (2 from daily chest and 18 from realm frags). I'm only doing this unstellar arena for the pet. If I don't get the pet tonight, I'm done with the event. I wasn't going to do it to begin with, but the golden fairy is tempting.... if I can get it.

    Other guildies have gotten multiple of the pets and keys and even got keys from the chest. I've got nothing. Other guildies have got nothing.

    The purpose of the event seems to be to cause frustration. I don't hold anything against my guildies that have gotten. I hold grievance against the D.A. Programmers of DSO for all of us that haven't gotten anything. There should be a key drop at least every 2nd or 3rd boss.

    So my, seems obvious, question is this: Why did they hire an IT department to do the programming???? Shure seems that way.

    I stopped counting but: key falls once per 60+ runs (or more runs I'm not sure :D),
    so until now 4 keys from drop, 3 keys from bonus code = no pet.
    I need 1 run more to get Armored White Alpaca. (I must say it wasn't planned to reach that progress, so playing mostly exc-inf1)
    It was obvious the pet will not drop after the 10th run, those who get it do max 2-3 to 5 runs, for all others is like miracle, but it's funny to see after how much runs it 'may' drop :D :D
    This game provide next level social experience - you can play gambling/bet with friends about the drop rate just pick item(uniqe item/pet/mount/whatever) and bet when would drop, the fun is guaranteed until... well... you have fun with that :D

    This is a game of chance where some are extremely lucky! The majority don't get anything! Bad game!

    Wow, really ? It drops me key like every third or fourth run, and i got the pet at the 10th or 11th run, i don't know. Maybe I have luck :)

    The variance for the drop is really large. Someone got the pet after a few laps others finish the second tape of progress and still nothing. Tricky coincidence as always ... for that reason, the pet should be included in the reward in progress as a desperate opportunity to get it for those who do not have this luck.:rolleyes:

    If BP didn't give us keys in bonus code I wouldn't open any chest.I made about 30 runs,mostly INF1 (I simply dont care about that event) and got not a single key.The chance of getting them is a disaster.

    After heavy fighting i reached 12000 progress in third bar and pet has dropped. I still can't finish event. I have consumed all of my resources (gold and realm fragment) and the cape does not drop entries at all. I haven't seen one since my last post. The prospects of farmin 6-7 hours again to get gold is physically and mentally exhausting. This is torture not gaming.

    Yes i have been scammed, I've been playing with the cape for 3 days and all i got were the 4 entries i wrote about. The gold fairy has cost me over 100k gold and over 1000 realm fragments, 22 euros and 5 days of continuous farming.
    My opinion is that DSO stand for Deutsch Scammers Organization

    The whole event is a disaster, and mainly just a blunt cashgrab.
    Just like this time's DtU was..

    --- MERGED ---

    I feel you, I was grinding for RF 4-6 hours a day for 6 days straight during DtU.
    Still failed to complete my dragan set as the ring didn't drop after 100+ tp kills. This game - especially by today's standards - is miserable, and it's(these events) mostly only enjoyed by some very specific people, who are probably 30+ years of age... 0 content, 0 fun, grind all day for NOTHING. This is what DSO can offer! :D
    Also everyone that's posting here, you're wasting your time, Bigpoint doesen't care about people who speak english! (For proof you just have to see that the event calendar here is not filled - it would take them about 5 minutes to do so, but they don't care at all.) Apparently this is more of a player's forum than it is a place for dev feedback!
    Good luck bp, you're trying to milk this game for as much money as you can while it still breathes but it isn't gonna last much longer! :)
