    EmilyRose is not a gangbanger nor botter and I would like to ask some players here to stop accusing others without evidence. It's not the first time he does it, and this should not be allowed here. Not "liking" a post or playing differently than you doesn't mean we are all botters.
    I understand pretty well EmilyRose situation and playstyle, and if she is able to play without groups and finish events is due to years of profitable farming and hard grinds (this doesn't mean having no life or playing tons of hours per day). Some players problem come when they don't know the better way to farm something and then they lose time farming in a bad way when some other players know how to be more profitable and take more loot in less hours.
    I think exactly the same as Emily, I can do Inf4 alone, I have more than enough Inf4 passages, BUT I don't like being forced to play an specific difficulty and I don't like the fact that most of the players are excluded from events so I thank devs for deleting Inf4 restriction. Now, if you can't do Inf4, you can do Fatal and finish event, obviously requiring more runs, but rewards now are free for all and I expect this to be done in future events, no more restrictions.

    If someone says that this year it is very difficult to open the package of 1500 coins the explanation is only one, he is one of the most disorganized and incapable players of all DSO.

    If I keep running bear inf1... and he keeps dropping golden presents... and the mobs don't drop any purple presents... and then I go norm to lower the chance for a golden present from the bear... and I still keep getting the golden presents... something is not alright.

    Hello Heroes,

    The Dev Team is already looking into the infernal difficulties missing. Thank you for your patience!

    Update: The issue has been fixed.

    You should farm both from the bear and from the kraparus you do before and when there are the mini ones in general you find more purple gifts

    Bigpoint has pretty much ruined the winter event, which was supposed to be the best of the year. Or it is too difficult because monsters are too strong such as, for example, Inf 4 ..., or the right drops do not fall like, for example, violet presents and you only get golden presents. The entire structure to get your progress bars full is so boring and lengthy.
    Always search for certain drops that probably never or rarely drop. There is simply no more fun in DSO, PVP is ruined, events are ruined, then there is not much left.
    That's not what I'm looking for in any game.

    There are some things I really like about this version of the event:
    • I like that the first boss on the map (I forget the name) no longer shoots you through the hillside before you can even see him.
    • I like that the second boss (Gwib I believe) is better scaled to the map difficulty.
    • I like the addition of the common amphorae.
    • I like that there are always 5 piggies on a map.
    • I really like the change to allow all group members to click a piggie.
    • I like that the map has the same shape regardless of difficulty.
    • I like the graphic to show where the boss area begins for Big Paws.
    • On the mini, I like that the timer to free the children doesn't start until someone goes through the barrier.
    Things I do not like:
    • I do not think Big Paws needed to be made tougher, requiring more snow essence.
    • I do not like the addition of the ...o-mat items.
    • I absolutely detest the mini events. Reasons are:
      • In general, I hate the multiple progress bar format but having some restricted to one level is discouraging.
      • Even allowing any level to access the last bar based on the last change doesn't mean that bar is completable for me. There is no way I have time to do that many runs per day.
      • The drop of Phestos coins is so low it isn't even worth killing Kramparus.
      • The darkness is way too dark and frustrating. It isn't like there aren't enough obstacles between the shooting heads and monster hoardes as it is.
      • The heads should stop shooting when the children timer runs out. Having to deal with those while trying to collect loot is just irritating.
    This has always been one of my favorite maps, even going back to when it was the New Moon map. I am a linear person. I would love to see it changed so I could kill both Big Paws and do the mini without retracing steps. And, oh boy, if those shooting heads went away, this would be a truly fun event, much more in the spirit of fun and giving. Make this an event a casual player could finish, particularly at this time of the year when we are pulled in all kinds of directions, and I think a lot of us would really appreciate it.

    I am glad: no infernal 4 restriction in mini event, because monsters are too strong.
    So please also delete Inf4 restriction in main event. My progress now is 7500 / 75000.

    The event, mainly the challenge, has exhausted me totally.
    The removal of inf4 restriction seemed great, but it has been replaced with a massive grind in easier modes. Yes, it is doable- if you have the time and if your brain cells don't start dying. The repetitive nature of this game is again beginning to kill my brain and so I think I might finish the 2nd challenge and leave DSO for 6 months to regenerate.

    You specifically mentioned progress bars being boring. I think you're right absolutely. This design could be more enjoyable if progress bars were filling by doing all kinds of different things, and not just by running the same 1 or 2 maps + boss like on a treadmill.
    What do we do in the winter challenge? We run the same map over and over for 12 hours. Jesus what am I doing with my life?!

    Thanks for removing the i4 bar, but should I embrace the grind? I have seen people who actually enjoy it. Good for them. As for me, Idk, I guess this game is not for me after all.

    Hi :)
    In some runs in currently mini event Kramparus drops only 1 Phesto's Coin instead of 2.
    Is this right or is a bug?
    Does this happen also to others player?
    Bye :*

    not yet always get two individual trophies with 1 coin each

    In normal and painful he doesn't have 100% chance of dropping a coin (80% and 90% respectively, actually). The chance is calculated for each coin separately, so on some occasions it is no coins, on some it is one coin, and on some it is two coins.

    Hi everyone.
    This is my 3rd Winter Event, for which I had high hopes for, BUT, after taking a look at the length and rewards of the Inf4 bars, I decided to take a different path, and try to make the most of it, by COIN farm.
    So after farming 6000 coins, I got the BIG PRESENT for all my 4 characters, which I thought was the most effective way to get good rewards for all of them. So....dear DSO team, consider this my feedback on this event, and -hopefuly- a message for future event structure.


    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!!!!!!

    I have consciously chosen the words in my description.
    I have been playing the same winter folder for 7 to 8 years in a row because so much has not changed. It took about 11 months for that winter folder tune out of my head and a little later it starts again :)
    I even suggested last year to come up with another mount or something and use it as the main objective or something ...,
    namely a horse sleigh with reindeer.
    It may not be exactly the same as my proposal, but they have also done 0.0% with this feedback.
    It has not happened because Bigpoint is too economical to make some further developments so that players do not have to do the same year after year.
    How difficult can it be to put together an event with fun prizes, fun activities with a bit of challenge instead of having to make unbelievable fashions and / or 200 ghostly laps.
    Will Bigpoint succeed next year?
    First see then believe, if not then I am in a different game.

    It's obvious that you play 4 toons often, this is not something out of your normal rutine so if you decide to divide your time in 4 different toons instead of all the time in 1, you won't have 1 character strong enough when such events come, I can understand some complaints from certain players, but not from players like you that make their decission to grow less and slower because they want to play 4 toons.
