    I'm sure the event will be new to a lot of players, and should be fun enough for them.

    The old hands will find it familiar and a lot boring. Hopefully, there will be a change-up during the event, with new prizes, more trips to the Winter Wasteland, or the discovery of a new dungeon.

    Note: Several players are complaining about the bonus map: Nightmare, Winter Wasteland. Not only are the bosses very fast, heavily armored, massive with hit points and regeneration, but they require huge investments in essence and time. The prizes are pathetic: Another winter solstice bag, worth 1 gold, when the jesters make that a pittance. DSO Scrooge should loosen up!

    If you're rerunning events, rerun the defense of werian and kingshill events. My dwarf would like the belt. (I think dwarves were introduced after the first event and never got a chamce to get the belt)

    Great event! Nothing is new for old players! The hard map crashes every once in a while when trying to enter it. And good luck getting into the hard map with the team you are in... Or well you do get in there but wont count as team members. Same happens in Q6 M2 too btw. So yeah thanks for the great event, really appreciating this! :mad:

    Another event where people need to grind like hell to get anything worthwhile.
    Those snowmen you give beets to hardly ever drop more than 20 essence, and the beets themselves drop like EDIT.
    That makes for a nice bunch of runs where you can't even face the boss.
    which by the way is in a pretty enclosed area where you can't really run.
    Pretty upset about the event allready.

    And let's not even talk about the rubberbanding. I enter the map, don't move, and get teleported to about the middle of the first "row" in the middle of mobs, where I of course die because I can't do EDIT.

    Do they even test their events? Damn.

    It's the first time I do it so I really can't complain about that.
    But the drops are really bad, and the grind is real. Which probably explains why it lasts a month.

    One of my characters (only one) was "treated" with 550 event points. All I was doing was right-clicking on my 5-pack from the Queen, and suddenly I had these event items in my inventory. Not that I'm complaining about the gift, but it was unearned and clearly a bug. And no, I'm not going to contact Support about it, they'll just tell me that I'm mistaken (as they have done with my previous bug reports), so there's no point in opening a ticket.

    Nice :), but I wouldn't call 500+ cookies a "bug" (just awesome luck) since the description states that you can win 500 as a jackpot.

    So many fails and so little time...
    Snowmen. REALLY DSO?????? No group for them, everyman for him/herself...FAIL. And of course AS USUAL you leave them out of dungeons so it's a mass cluster of players trying to be the first to get them. FAIL. 2 ess drops from snowmen??? FAIL. if you're going to make it that much more difficult to get essence from them they should be dropping MINIMUM of 100 ess per click IF you're lucky enough to get on them. Oh but wait, we can of course BUY THE STUPID OVERPRICED SNOW ESSENCE. FAIL FAIL FAIL.
    And the mods have to edit disparaging remarks directed towards the dev team and the man in charge of it all who makes such "brilliant" decisions with pure regard to the player base. FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL.
    Pack it in BP, fire the whole DSO team, sell the game to the chinese and walk away from it before it gets even more of a embarrassing FAIL for you.

    Exactly same rewards/maps etcetc, as last year + major lag (at least on heredur)
    - Great work, DSO team you guys rock!! You work so hard on holding your server stable and improve events for the players. Oh my, oh my, hard workers... ;)

    Overall.. Take your server down and don't put it up until you guys actually fixed EDIT. Don't do it for me, DO it for yourself!

    Must really be hard to change rewards in an event as well, all the "months" of planing/designing etc that it takes.. Sure..

    nice event overall but a couple problems i have

    1- the snow ess, you don't get enough of it and snowmen in wilderness areas don't work with many players camping them

    suggestions- add them to dungeons or PW(would give more ess here) repeatable quest in event map for ess or things in there could drop some of it besides what you get from presents

    2- the statues that shoot at you, they do too much damage. also your likely to die on this map so having to dodge them everytime you die to get back where you were is annoying.

    suggestion- after passing the *shooting statues* for the first time add a switch to turn them off(they would be turned back on after entering map again)

    EDIT- ok this having to have snow ess to kill boss is making this event not fun for me becuase you never have enough! red ess sitting in inventory id gladly use but nooooo

    Hey its very tough to farm snow essence where they r very limited resources and the requirement is very large atleast put snow man in all dungeons where v can go and get essence

    Same event as last year and same thing with getting essence, so you did NOT lisen to the community. We do not like to "fight" over 2 essence, that is just dumb. Why not make essence drop from monsters on the event map, it would make event that much more enjoyable and that much more fun to play unlike how is now, boring.
