    OK, so the stormball event just came and i think most of the players will agree with me when i say that this event is ruined for many reasons. So, lets get things straight.
    First of all, the troll does not have a guarranteed chance of spawning . We have no idea how often it spawns, although it is certain that it does not have a 100% chance of spawning.
    Secondly, on top of the fact that the troll doesnt always spawn, it does not always drop the costumes, but only the flags have a 100% drop rate. Not only that but it looks like that some flags are rarer and some more common. For example, out of the 4-5 flags i got, i got the same flag twice in the 5 runs the troll spawned. Is that a joke?
    3.How are the players supposed to get all costumes and all flags when :
    a)the troll does not always spawn
    b) does not always drop costumes
    c) since there are 32 costumes and 64 flags, how are we supposed to get all of them when A+B plus the number of costumes and especially flags are so many that we will get a ton of duplicate? Do you wish to make us die grinding for those things? Is it not enough farming those wisdom runes with their terrible drop rate on those maps?

    Inb4 someone says that we can buy those things with anders or from emilia, i will tell you this. Not everyone has premium, also those who dont have it will never spend so many anders to buy the reward progress for stuff that are not even worth. As for this feature, im talking about giving premium users the ability to buy all the progress with gold(although so far i see only a few stuff there, whereas on the test server every flag and costume could be bought at emilia), to me its ridiculus. We get an event like this once in so many years and you allow a feature like that instead of improving the way the troll spawns and the drops it gives?


    P.S: BTW its Colombia, not Columbia. Columbia is not a country

    I know very well, but the point of an event is to finish it. Do you really think we will be able to complete either the flag or the costume bag the way this event is designed? With no guarranteed drop of costumes, no guarranteed spawn of the troll and with the number of items we have to collect in order to complete both bags, 32 costumes and 64 flags, do you really think we will be able to do this without needing to buy any flag or costume? oh please. i thought you had clear mind and you were not delusional. Even if this event lasts for 3 months, there is no guarrantee that we will finish it, simply because the number of items is too great that the odds of getting duplicate items will keep increasing the more we get new ones. Like, if we have 23/32 costumes and 46/64 flags, do you know how many duplicate ones well get? And all that with a monster that doesnt always spawn, does now always drop costumes and on top of that we also have the dragan event running, which is only half way through. Honestly man, i thought you knew better than the way you replied. What a shame.

    P.S: One thing is certain. Im not gonna die of grinding to get those costumes and flags, just to get these rewards. Not only the motives are not there, but the effort vs reward system is once again not fair, not to mention i was the one writing about it on the FB page and there someone from the team assured me that they are striving for a balanced effort vs reward system. The designing of this event proves once again an effort to push players for a needless + useless grind for stuff that are not even necessary, not to mention this is perhaps the first time(cannot remember another one right now) that i see an event that in order to finish it 99% of the players will be forced to buy some of the progress, either with anders or with gold, if they have premium that is

    I do not think it's worth anyone to "chase" any "progress" in this event.

    It's a nice extra addition that will "run" along with something else ... like the Big Game Hunt.

    It is not necessary to get it all.

    This really needs an event window in-game, most of the players don't even know that this is currently running and those who "hear" about it have no idea what's the deal with it.

    The troll needs to spawn 100% of the times, its spawning must not be random

    Can you please take that random bollocks out of one thing?

    I would be okay with those Trolls not always spawning if not the fact that they're not in the parallel world...
    It would be just a nice addition to regular 'farming', but it's not okay with how many costumes and emotes are to get when I MUST farm it on a regular world dungeons...

    3 hours of farming - 1 costume and 4 flags...I think you should rebalance the drop or the chances of troll spawning. Give 100% chances of drop on both of them and leave the troll hard to find or leave it like this but increase the chances of finding the troll. It's an event made to celebrate the World Cup not to nerd the hell out of a person.

    they should simply increase the chances of it spawning

    Actually you can increase the chances on your own ... if you know what I mean ;)

    Stonekeep map. Red X is where troll can appear on map. So you team up with 2 more friends, one search on painful, second on excru, third on fatal. Who find trolls, send '+' in group, and others come to kill troll together. Each one reset his map on norm. Norm is just for reseting map, there is no troll.

    I believe this is the fastest and most efficient way. It is very boring and it is noob farm, so you only search for trolls and play event.

    For less or more ppl in grp find a similar way, but I think you get my point.

    EDIT: My feedback. I love the last prizes, that ball mount is cool and that rune is a must have. Other progress prizes are fine, except those lege items. Small flags are meh emotes, but the big ones are cool looking emote. Costumes are meeeeh, they kinda look like pajama.

    ok this is getting ridiculus. things are even worse than i expected. so the troll has spawned 9 times for me and yet it gave me 3 times the flag of Australia and 2 times the small flag of Australia. Are you kidding me? 9 runs and 3 of them were useless at this point of the event that we still have a ton new ones to get and instead we get duplicates? Thats absurd. Like i mentioned above, making flags and costumes have different drop rates, some rare some common, is ridiculus because they are not like dragans set that we farm. We are talking about progress bar items here. I think its the first event that we dont know how much of the progress bar we can fill, because the progress bar items not only drop randomly but they even have fixed rarities by the looks of it. What does that mean? Well, you can look at it this way: We will be able to fill half the progress bar after tons of runs and for the rest of the bar only the luckier ones will have a chance, and if my speculations are correct, there will be alot of flags and costumes that the players will never get and they will be forced to buy them, if they want to finish the event.
    I thought this event was supposed to be a fun event, in light of the Fifa World Cup, but instead you turned it to the most boring grind fiesta of all time

    What I don't like about this event is that BP thought about making costumes only of teams that will be partecipating on the world cup. That would be ok if they weren't only looking at males world cup... I mean, or you put all flags or you put flags for every country that partecipates, wether if it is males competion or females one.
    Not that I care about football... Just 1+1=2

    After 3hrs 3/3 group farm, plus 2hrs solo farm (testing stuff, and switching excru/fatal mode) I got 13/32 costume and 39/64 flags. Most common drop is small flag, then big flag, and rarest are costumes. My biggest concern is that I will not be able to collect everything. The drop is very random, also some stuff appear more often, so I got many duplicates. I do not have premium, only couple of them from bonus codes sittin in cobold, so I cannot buy stuff from Emilia. Also in shop cannot be find everything, so I am scared if like, at the end of event, I miss one costume, and it is not in shop. Cuz if you do not collect everything, there is no point to even collect one. Last prizes are the ones that matter.

    On TS you could get more trolls than one on the same map, so, has anyone encountered more than one so far?
    Also... Are ALL the costumes and emotes going to be in the shop towards the event's end? So that we can buy what we're missing. Or will they be like now and they're going to be available only during the period of the respective matches?

    There are nothing to do in this event.

    IMHO the best way to finish event is:
    1) first day with a group of 5: everyone go in a different map and different difficulty. When someone found troll call others. In 3 hours yesterday I found 16 costumes and 38 flags;
    2) other days: buying remaining costume and flags (set of 3 costs 220gold...peharps only for Premium users?)
    So I need spent only 3000gold that is the money that I got in 1 farm day (drop and selling items)

    I already got 30 different flags out of 64, and 6 costumes. Not bad for first day. Stop complaining all over the time. If you don't like it just don't do it. You cannot have everything completed without putting effort on it. What's the point if the troll is permanently in a location?
