    That is why i wrote "unique" cause from all the kills of big paws i got only this that can be considered fail "unique", and every unique changes appearance from normal one.

    Well I do not agree with all of the critiques. BP did listen to us as we said grouping was penalized to hard. Now it's better to group, HP of the mobs don't go up as quickly as they used.

    Ofcourse it's difficult to make a an event for both beginners and die-hards. The prvious event, Desert of essence, was a good setup. This one is not so good. But I still think it's better to have an easy event then one of those sargons a few months back.

    I find BP is on a good track when it comes to scaling. Good them some time, keep the feedback going. Maybe some good comes out of it.

    Most at the server I played don't kill Nightmare boss because of bad drop.
    I tried alone with my lil mage and I got crap items 4500 red because the bear re spawned. Santa boss was like Dragan and regenerate a lot of hp so harder then mortis.

    The event wasnt too short. I didnt bother finishing because the rewards werent motivating. Especially all the time it would take to get them. I agree with Coograth about the totems, they are passable, but way too time consuming. There should be a way to disable them after making it past the first time.

    disabling after passing first time.. i like this idea

    here's what i did to finish event. dont farm snow ess in pve area.
    rather spend same time in map1 and leave without killing boss.and use those presents to get ess. it might look a little slow but it actully saves a lot of time.

    The turrets are imbalanced becouse they 1 shoot low geared players. Geared people often survives 2+ hits.
    This is imbalanced. Either they must 1 shoot everybody, or take 50% healt (or something like that) per hit.

    Anyway, we are not here to play arcade games !

    I agree that group becomes helpful this time and it makes the game easy to finish. The design of the map as well as the decorations in the urban areas are also fasinating. The epic reindeer is adorable.

    However, the loot especially for the presents are worse. Most of them are magic and improved items, at most extraordianry. This makes it like running an ordinary map in the parallel world. Even the golden present, the loot is terrible. No the so called unique or christmas gear is given as mentioned by the patch notice. I feel like a bit deceived. Everyone is expecting legendary gear or unique items for the golden present. Honestly, running 1 time Q6 map 2 will have much better drop than going the christmas map and the boss.

    Another thing is about the collection of snow essence. It's time-consuming and hard to get essence from snowman. They should have dropped by mobs in the winter summit at least.

    Giving consumable emotes or anything timed has always and widely accepted to be a dismotivating move. They just occupy inventory space, once they are used they will be gone. Therefore for those consumables, i always throw them away immediately to give more space for quest items.

    The surpise chest is also a bit disappointing this time, all the things are consumables. They should include non-timed emotes, dyes or other new design items or buffs to make it tempting.

    As for the progress reward, they could be more tempting. Legendary gears, lock picks and more crystal of truth could be included. One of the christmas gears should also be included as progress reward.

    Moreover, there is great connection problem, lags in player search, frequent Nebula assertion error which are unsatisfactory

    Yes..Always the same the make updates before they test them for bugs.

    biggest issue, those mther loving statues.

    let me be clear about this. I wont even bother trying to get to the boss because of them. if I could snap my fingers and make magically appear in front of me whoever thought that was a good idea to annoy and troll the player base like that I would probably end up in jail.

    it was a stupid idea... it annoys the players... and frankly, the rewards for doing the event are not even close to worth the frustration.

    throw in laggy as EDIT server hereder, and good luck making it through that RETARDED idea, cant even teleport sometimes because it rubber bands you right back and you get a kill shot because of the lag...

    and yes, I know all the short cuts, believe me I looked... I finish the mobs that's it.

    screw the boss, not worth it. not even interested in hard mode those statues pissed me off so much.

    second issue, and not such a big deal and probably just an issue im having because im color blind.

    everything is the same shade of BRIGHT. throw in 5 party members and a bagillion missiles and skills going off and I cant see a god damn thing.

    was it intentional to make everything blend in together? or just pure laziness... throw in some bright red hats ffs.

    even the mother loving missiles the statues shoot are the same shade of BRIGHT

    hire a woman for your color schemes...

    Not true (or test admin can't kill snowy fast :D) snowman dies very fast and easy Santa regenerates like Dragan.

    And how fun is that when the portals is in the end and you got drop from reindeer quest when u are done with that quest?

    Bad, bad santa and poor drops for what?
    Nothing just waste of ess and time.

    Ps sure I did enjoyed the extra part (reindeer quest which I have all ready) from nightmare map

    They do test for bugs. And then they let us test for bugs. It is called the test server. I personally reported a half dozen bugs and they were all fixed. If you have a problem with bugs making it past people like me, then quit complaining and start doing some testing yourself.

    Sorry for being rude but, What the heck with all this connection problems when I try to change maps. Just lost my hard earn sugar beet to go to harder map because someone in dev is having too much fun instead of doing their job. Fix the problem.

    Servers are over lagging, changing areas is really impossible, 1 in 3-4 map changes = disconnection and the game don't allows you to reconnect until your character position is resets and spawn him in the City when you reconnect. Disconnection when you passed all the normal map and you are going to hard version it is really disturbing, you have to do all that all over again and with a high possibility to get disconnection again at the same "spot". That thing needs a better Hotfix and give some time boost on that event.

    EDIT: Yep, I get disconnected twice, trying to get to the hard map. So... now what? Should I try third time and get DC again? :confused:
