    I am really happy this event is over ... no more sugar beet drops .... :D:D

    While many of the end game players in particular found it tedious, I've not yet experienced the Winter Solstice event and found it enjoyable. I loved that the presents stacked. It took less inventory space for so much more loot (although the loot was not always useful...what am I going to do with all these beets!).

    I was able to get the Reindeer mount (Mmooooooooo!!!!) for the one character that should be riding such a mount, and the others were able to easily get their daily quota of worthy monsters without having to travel far.

    The decorations in most of the locations were well done and actually helped the year IRL feel a bit more festive too.

    The one thing that would make it nicer if it is to come around next year is to have an option to stop dropping the beets. If you aren't doing the event, they are just clutter. Either that of find a way to sell/use them for something else.

    Another gorgeous map. Whoever designs the maps at DSO is doing it well. I also appreciate that the monsters are mostly original and not found in other maps. I always cringe on recycled mobs and these are/were creative. I know people didn't care for the killer snow balls on the bridges but in reflection I think it was a smart way to force group play. The group had to look out for one another and revive weaker players. While annoying, it did force the stronger players to look out for the weaker players.

    The answer is:
    This map is old ... they are using it for New Moon event as well.
    The map being old and monsters mostly original ... is due to the fact it was created long time ago ... when DSO was at its peak ... with the old DSO Team.
    The new DSO team is clueless ... and with lack of creativity.
    The original team was doing it with passion ... this team is doing it for PAYCHECK only.

    What you wrote is (unfortunately) accurate. This is a three year old game, though, so I guess I kind of expect these kinds of things. Still, not a desirable situation in a game I may or may not still enjoy (but not like the ol' days ;) ).

    Funny enough in one server, I had way too many sweet beets (in the thousands) but in another I play, I ran out of sweet beets because I've visited the snowmen too much and traded them all way for a crazy amount of snowflakes.
