Personally, I'm ALL in favour of the event just being rerun next weekend - there are several advantages.

1. More easter baskets

 

2. Some folk who may not normally ever make top 10 will have a much-improved chance this time due to a lot of massive stam bankers having exhausted (partially or fully) their reserves

 

3. It's fair to everyone under the circumstances.

Is it an ideal solution ? - no, the ideal solution would, of course, been to have fixed the problems there've been, but this is a good second IMO.


Homer : Marge, don't discourage the boy. Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what separates us from the animals .. except the weasel.

 

Eddie Izzard : The National Rifle Association say that guns don't kill people, people do. But I think the gun helps, you know ? I think it helps. I think just standing there going "BANG" - that's not going to kill too many people, is it ?

 

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but it seems that everything I eat lately turns to poo ...

Great job being unfair with global rewards again. The top 100 aren't the only people that were dealing with lag, and errors. I was going to do another global hunt with full stamina, but couldn't due constant 502 errors, and I guarantee that I'm not the only one. If you're going to give out extra rewards like this you need to give them to everyone, or no one. Especially when problems with lag, and errors are effecting everybody, not just those in the top 100.

 

 

Nothing but horrible lag and gateway errors, im really really annoyed that i couldnt partake in this event due to the issues that came over the last week.....
No compensation, no word from anyone just a "sorry"

I think my time here is coming to a rapid end

 

come on you were just being lazy. i still manage to get 270k kills with all the lag and time outs and errors you guys could of got ur 9k kills easter with highest globe booster.

A. I got my 9k kills. B. I was going to do another hunt to try for top 100, but couldn't because the game refused to load for close to 90 minutes, and frustrated me to the point that I just decided to give up on it instead of being awake until 5 A.M. Crass assumptions will get you nowhere. HCS deciding to let people keep extra chests they shouldn't have, and then not giving everybody else extras to make it more fair for everyone doesn't help anything either, and because I know someone is gonna bring up that they're running the event again, I don't care. A lot of people got extra chests that they shouldn't have, so HCS should've given everybody else some extras as well.

So I don't fully understand why releasing the event at a later date is a good idea. The event could have been paused for a later date I would get but releasing it again so the same players can part take and gain more chests on top of the 18+ they already received is a good idea? Its too late for that the rewards have already been sent out.


My goal was to reach top 100 but settled for 9k because the lag was unbearable. There is no fix to this, and whats done is done... hoof should have stopped the event and saved the current progress when he got on on the weekend but nope.


I don't know about everyone else, but doing a rerun in the same month will just piss me off even more.

What's with the x number of baskets? Weren't there supposed to be five baskets max and that too for those who made it to the top 100?

 

(An even number at the ruby level would be most welcome though :P)

1. so, stop event and restart later? and if more problems develop? compatibilty/ continuity issues? better to rerun event.

2. if the same players have the stam and participate, then they get the reward. its called competition.

3. feedback suggest players upset about losing chance to fully compete. a rerun of event gives them a chance.

as to giving rewards, there was a time when only top participants would get reward. the rest join event for honor and drops, we were suckers. let cow wisdom decide or continue complaining, bc you want ... ?

Notice no complaints from players that received the gross number of chests... why give them more? We will have to compete against them on ladder, GvG and other aspects of the game where they have more resources than you because they got the good end of the errors... also should we always accept everything that happens and never complain? You want everyone to remain silent, so nothing gets fixed, right?

What you all don't seem to understand is those of us who persisted through the lag 502'3's and 4's were still able to get top 10 as I did over 6 hours.

 

You cannot blame others when you do not try yourselves.

yes it was an absolute pita but perseverance could get it done. As plenty of players showed.

Well great for you. But that doesn't still discount the problem. I had good hunts the past few days, and there were moments I couldn't get into the game for hours on a roll. I really hope you weren't thinking that players will check 24 hours to see when the servers were working or not. At the exact same time I was having a really good hunt and perfectly working servers, my guild mates were facing the horrible lags and outages. So it isn't the same for everyone. You were able to get yours. Let others demand for theirs.

 

I myself missed out on several good DQs (and the related rewards) because of the issues. I would have missed the BP slot sale as well, but I managed to get into the game and avail the offer.

I spent 2 days trying repeatedly to get into the game, getting nothing but 502 errors and finally just gave up entirely.  By the time I finally got into the game, the event was over.  

 

The lag and page loading issues were horrid during the entire event. 


Just one old lady's opinion

I don't really know where I stand about redoing the event, but gonna share what happened to me as well:

 

Hunted through a very painful 3,5 hours using 9,5k stamina and getting 104k kills, buffs ran out and I had 35k more stamina to burn...Re did the same buffs and hunted for another 3 hours, but this time I only got 63k kills with the 35k stamina...Total of 167k kills not able to make Top 100, and only getting 3 chests instead of the 18-21 chests others got.

 

So it wasn't only time and persistance involved, there must be some sort of bug happening as well.

three horrible experiences affecting GE, DQ's, hunting, gold/ fsp, special potions, and time with little to no rewards. truth. love.
