do you think GMs made this event to be fair? Just take a look at the difficulty settings and the higher drop rates for those harder instance. World isn't always fair. That's life. This event is pretty much pay to win. Don't bitch at people for having advantages, bitch at the GMs for making the event pay to win.

 

Having read this, I wonder what solution you propose to the status quo rather than "bitch at the GMs"?

The idea of it was more: making it rewarding, rather than pay to win.

Ideally, an event is never catered towards either just newbies or just veteran players. A good middle ground is what we look for, and it's true that certain mechanics under certain circumstances are a bit unfair. See it like Angra being disabled in Sealed MVPs locations.

Newbies/non veterans probably won't be able to complete Medium and Hard difficulties, and that's who easy is for. Yes, the drop rates are lower, but the base of RO is grinding and a bit of challenge is always fun, so it's natural that a bit of effort goes into it.
They can also make parties or join others if they want.

Higher difficulties have better drop rates and as an all-time RPG/MMORPG player myself it's honestly pretty normal to me. A task is harder to complete and requires more effort, therefore you gain more. And if you're able to complete those difficulties it means that you made an effort to reach that level too. Grinding is fun when what you get from it is worth it and you feel like your efforts don't go to waste, otherwise it's just frustrating.
Also when we opened Player Council some months ago, many veteran players told us that since they know the game well/are in late-game, sometimes the game feels boring to them because they don't have much to do. That's why we're trying to give everyone a possibility to join events and have fun.

Now, if we achieve this or not is another story. But that's what feedback is for. If something is wrong or not intended, we learn from it and fix it. But overall that's our general intention.

Sorry to quote that one, but for real "give evryone a possibility" there are farmers who CAMP in the DAMN maps and not even give others a chance
there should be a cool down on it so others have the chance too

True. Hopefully it will be a more enjoyable experience with the fixes coming up.

I had said just make it that randomly 1 to 3 pits spawn at same time (one person can't take all 3 if they spawn same time).

In my opinion the issue isn't a cool down, it's just too less for the amount of people on peak times. 

 

For example Sammy, on German time around 8 to 10pm we basically were alone. A forced cooldown I had found pretty gei then. :v

Earthlings,

  • The following adjustments were made:
  • When entering a map, you will now be notified if there's an active Pit. If the Pit is inactive, you will be notified with a respawn timer.
  • The event will now go on until November 30th 11:59 PM Server Time (UTC+8).

To apologize for the inconveniences caused by the event, we're adding a new costume loot and giving compensation:

  • Costume: Nimbus Broom

  • Additionally, EXP rates will be increased for 72 hours (until November 4th, 4:00 AM server time UTC+8).
