    There are flaws yes, but there are also an upside to the event. Overall, I like it, gives everyone something to do. Though, if this is read by the right people, bring stocking daily back. :/

    I cant tell you how much I hate those lasers!!!!!!! Anyone who is low lvl cant take more than one hit and then you have start all over again. The aiming ones are really cruel to add! Ive seen many people have to skip the boss because of them. This is NOT the way to entice new players to the game! I have played 50 browser and other mmo and this is the worst Christmas event Ive been to by far.

    Too bad the event is a carbon copy of last year's. This event will be a fruitless use of time for seasoned characters... but, isn't that the point of gaming anyways?

    2013 vs 2014, what difference one year makes :
    · Fixed: Event cloak works properly
    · Fixed: No nebula errors in the event map (?). At least I haven’t seen any.
    · Fixed: Removed exploitable spot in the Big Paw cave
    · Negative: Removed a jumping point for bypassing a few missiles and a useless walking path.
    · Negative: 1 less progress reward
    · New: Daily XMAS vouchers
    · New Bug: Error 21 upon entering normal area maps
    · New Bug: No daily reward
    · DDoS attack: Cannot properly form groups

    Unbearable non-actions:
    · Mad Santa heals (+70,000 HP (1)) even when his skill Mighty Wild Swing does not land (2). Unfulfilling rewards. [I saved my portals from last year because of the negative feedback and finally used the maps this year. Uber disappoint. #UD.]
    · Big Paw resets if you pull him too far right of the circular arena (2).
    · Farming for Snow essence is ridiculous.
    · Summoned skills/creatures will attack statues (in the Big Paw's cave & the Nightmare map)
    · Snow missiles = very unpopular. Skill-based obstacles are fine, but these missiles were unforgiving and was not an accurate reflection of my reflex skills (I hope).

    Yes the Wasteland is still a pain, long and hard, with miserly payoff. Shouldn't the final prize be more than a weak token?

    I am totally with you about the snow essence - for the sake of everyone, just cancel the idea and let us have fun killing the boss on every entry.

    I have been playing this game for a year - this event looks fun but the designer stuffed it up by having force ppl to grind too long before they can get such little reward. There are a few things I suggest:

    1. continue to work on the lagging problem, cos chars keep shifting back and not such that the monsters can hurt or kill you while you can't control your char.

    2. GET RID OF THE need for SNOW ESSENCE and let us have fun killing the boss on every entry, cos getting the fees to enter is already time consuming. It takes 10mins to wait for a snowman to pop up and you only get 5-10 essence, yet to kill Big Paw it costs about 1k snow essence, the maths doesn't add up.

    3. GET RID OF THE BRIDGE WITH SHOOTINGS - this is tolerable for Premium members, but no prem can't afford to die and it's a stupid way to die after all those hard work killing monsters and getting into this place. We rather spend time figting more monsters than to cross those stupid bridges that takes 95% of our health. Ppl work hard to earn their fees to enter in summit snow, let us just enjoy playing in there killing monsters and get our reward.

    4. The expectation is 9000 points to finish event, that's very long for a normal person who only has 1-2hrs to play per day. A good game caters for everyone, if not most ppl. There are ppl who works or work long hrs, who are parents, and playing game is a way to relax but you set such a high goal and yet with so many dragging long the event tasks (like obtaining the snow essence). Design game that reduces grinding and more on doing different things (adventure), don't just focus on the those hardcore players who has all the time in the world to sit on the screen to do all those long tedious repetative boring tasks.

    finished event, but not sure if the event reward is actually working. The Winter festival bag last year had a bug, it was not solved and we still do not know if it changes anything or not since no one saw any difference, other than that, easy event. it is better to put more events for 1 week rather than 1 for 1 month...

    The hunt for snow essences makes for competition between players, a little more like PvP than PvE. It's definitely not fun for the losers. There has got to be a better way.

    This is a Winter Solstice Festival feedback thread, the "group bug" is not related with this event it is happening on all maps.
    It is not even a bug, it is server related issue.
    Please stay on topic. There is an open thread related with that issue in "technical support" section, you can use that thread.

    Event done :

    Played about 2 hours/day since the event began ( easy + hard ).
    2 or 3 maps I did the event in team of 5 ( witch is the fastest way to finish it cause it's very easy and at the 2 bears I consumed about 250 snow essences, alone its about 500 for both easy and hard bosses ).
    I didn't waste time to find the snowmans for essences, just played the map events, and the quests.
    Very weak event, and very poor drop of items and essences in the maps.

    Reduce the sugar beets drop on every map. We want to get items and gems as well ... and not just 99999999999 sugar beets per run. :mad::mad::mad:

    BTW I have finished the event in few hours (less than 4 hours I think)

    Fix the nuts SANTA on nightmare map!

    I assumed they drop there costume on nightmare map. On both times, First was with snowman, 2nd was santa. Neither dropped there costume(wanted prem santa). I did it with a few friends with reds, with prem, it makes it easier. Paws took like 2 mins to kill, Santa around 5. Anyways, I was real let down on me only getting one shot at Santa costume and it didnt drop.

    I'm looking forward to the nightmare map. I like the idea of having something that's insane hard to do.

    So far I like the event. It's really nice to play with guildmates. I really like that it's the whole month this year because I travel during the holiday and have very little play time that week.

    One small suggestion. I was running around a low level map to farm snow essence. I have PVP on and use it to take away other players chance at snowmen. Also, I know how to get the snow before someone else and overall my farming was making a lot of people upset. I get a lot of essence but no one else does. I though it would be nice if everyone on the whole map could get snow essence regardless of who pops the snowman because it's xmas and that's what people should do. :p

    Snowman costume is a progress reward. Somewhere around 2000 to 3000 cookies, i think. Not sure about santa costume.
  17. Duriastriker

    Duriastriker Forum Inhabitant

    Yeah, I have Snowman already, I just assumed since there are only 2 portals given they would have a for sure drop rate for costume. Was only aiming for the Santa one.

    I got the Santa costume as a drop from the Hard boss. I already had if from last yeas, so I trashed it. I'm looking for the perma Build Snowman Emote.

    Ya, ive seen the Santa costume a few times from hard boss but the Snowman emote dropped from Nightmare paws, not sure if it was coincidence that it dropped when the Wizard(sw) was his escort. Got the Santa DK second time, so couldn't check the coincidence. Would be nice if there was a way to earn more nightmare trips.
