    My opinion is the following;
    It seems that new and / or less strong players do not count for Bigpoint because they cannot play inf 1 & inf 4. I myself am an advanced player but even then I still see that this event is not for everyone.
    Bigpoint has probably got snow in the eyes and don't see it all that well anymore.
    Another aspect is the farming of presents, in particular the violet presents.
    Every 5 violet, 15 Blue and 40 Green presents the player gives 20 Phestoscoins when redeeming. Well Bigpoint, it would be handy if the violet presents would drop a little more often.
    I now do 3 or 4 whole winter summits + Big Paws without dropping 1 violet so please fool yourself and not your players that you need your income from.
    Bigpoint's motto is similar to
    "Players have to spend a lot to get almost impossible drops in return." (So actually no unique drops or no violet present)

    Not to mention the huge amount of snow essences that players will need to complete their inf 1 & inf 4 progress.
    More snow essences in the progress bars would have been more appropriate.

    I also understand that Kranparus is unfortunately going to cut back on the issue of Phestos coins, but I must first experience that factor in 1/3 before I can form an opinion about it, but as it looks now, it will not be better than previous years .

    Bigpoint apparently likes to change the game every few months.
    Then Bigpoint would be better to put together a winter event so that all items from the collector's bag concerning the winter event are also feasible. No, they still do not understand, there are still many players who do not have a reindeer with lights or a Christmas hat and who could not be achieved in previous years.
    I would rather think that Bigpoint developers have lost the overview of their own game. We players have to draw their attention to that and then get a much too difficult event in return.

    I fully understand that there must be a challenge in the game, but one can exaggerate like now.
    The big end gift is composed of several great prizes, but most players I would prefer to see that the total event is a little easier to achieve and Bigpoint can take that into account a little, I think ..., example ..,
    Because certain players make purchases that keep DSO running, but they are also often people who have to work during the day and then achieving an event like this becomes even more difficult.
    I know Bigpoint, taking your own players into account can sometimes be difficult ..., give it a try;)

    Try, D.S.O. Riddle, for a little remorse. It's your last chance.

    It would do you and us a world of good.

    trakilaki fountain with progress
    Challenge 1 - x4 (Infernal IV = 4x25)
    Challenge 2 - x7 (Infernal IV = 7x25)
    Challenge 3 - x11 (Infernal IV = 11x25)
    , just running to kill kramparus and free children, that is why there is a set of defense (shield, potions, life benefits, equipment to revive, skills, etc.), with 13 runs per day (1 run = 10 minutes) in 2 hours. At least I know how to balance my character, but if it doesn't work I will have to wait for the New Year event, which according to what is seen is similar in the progress bars to the Halloween event. It is not necessary to play 5 to 6 hours per day in the game, just play 2 hours and if it does not work, then it does not work. The events are long because many players complained that everything was easy (events, legendary spells, unique, farms, etc.), so it was boring for them to play and this is the result.

    Thanks @gbit for making a single picture dot map. Been wanting this all week.

    Using those "each place screenshots" was slow and tedious after you know where to look, but can't remember which set is which.

    it's quite true, many people have been stupid complaining about excessive ease or rapidity in completing events. I think they mostly were children. In the same way I do not believe that this has influenced the strategies"of the producer, who have merely followed the logics of maximum profit... and total indifference towards the mental health of those who still applies in videogames like if they are a reason of life.

    I found this video about the progress in mini event:

    Watching after 1:03:00 we see that every cage drops 12 progress with attire in Inf3 total 48 per round,
    and watching after 1:26:00 we see that every cage drops 10 progress with attire in Inf4 total 40 per round;

    Inf3 progress is lower than Inf4. There might be a mistake so the attire didn't work in Inf4. In wiki it says 25 progress per cage in Inf4 but it's much lower in this video. I don't know which one is right. But with 10 per cage makes 100 rounds to finish the first mini. If 10 is with attire then 150 rounds without attire. I think it's too much for mini event which takes quite some time for a single round. And there are 3 of them.

    DSO Wiki is having the correct drops ... I am personally testing them and taking notes.
    Also ... There is a reason why DSO Wiki event guides are not being made immediately after events start at TS (lesson learnt long time ago). Because those events need to went through changes, bugfixing and balancing first before the final version hit the live servers.
    Therefore ...
    If you see the streaming date of that video ... it is November 2nd, 2019.
    My info on Wiki has been made with the last event version on November 28th, 2019

    I don't like to be forced to do inf4.
    I like the sound track of the Winter summit.

    Yes i know the dates that's why i wrote "i don't know which one is right". The game developers came up with so many meaningless things since last couple of months. That's why i just wanted to share this if someone has the %100 correct info about which one is true or there is another change so far.

    The company should seriously give some info about these things to players. Because when i write support that "It says ..... in wiki" they reply that wiki is not official. If they claim that it is not official they should give an official explanation. Because we don't have any other place other than wiki & for information about this game. And when they don't macht we're having a conflict regardless of the date of the info.

    By the way i hope wiki info is correct because i don't think that i can be patient for finishing that mini event even if I have the all time in the world.

    Of course it is not official ... DSO Wiki contributors are not on BP's payroll.
    You are again missing the point:
    meaning - last version before releasing on live servers is more accurate than the initial drafts.
    Information is power. He who controls the information is controlling the masses.
    Think of it ... why would they give you information in advance so you would prepare yourself for the event instead of buying the attire?

    Seriously we're not asking for nuclear codes of some countries. They will just give brief info about the events. What power does it hold? According to your claim if someone buys the attire and see that they wouldn't need it do you think that they would pay for the 2nd time. It's not called holding the power it's called scamming.

    I still don't see the problem in completing the events quickly

    And events are still easy, they are just longer and boring

    Umm... because I would never buy a cheat code.. errr.. cheat cloak... same thing. Before anyone argues, these are the facts.....

    • DSO made an event.
    • Somebody (doesn't matter that it's DSO) made a way to cheat around the event.
    • The cloaks are cheat codes, plain and simple.
    • Which, since it's "illegal to cheat", is why they cost an absolutely ridiculous amount.

    Apparently the game has finally decided I have no business playing infernal modes


    ...and I'm fine with that, I guess. I refuse to farm snow essence by 2 and 5 pieces and I refuse to buy pay2win crap, thank you very much.

    BigPoint probably thought that 75.000 progress on Infernal 4 is too easy, so they decided to make it a bit harder to finish, by removing all difficulties above fatal.
