    Sub told me that the correct boxes you can get now, have some REALLY good Items in it, again this was a first timer for Sub putting something up quick so the players have something to play around with while waiting for the Update. You guys still have lots of time before the Event ends. And this is as good as it gets gets for Sub to "compensate" by actually putting the right boxes in, since again the real ones that are in now, seem to have decent rewards in it. & No we will not put them on the Cash Shop, because only then the ones with a lot Ellun will profit from them. But hey we learned from it, and Sub and I both make sure to double check twice before we put something up to make sure its correct & other Events will be a lot cleaner on the new Version because it is so much more up2date. Sub and I really wanna get this update out quick, so I'm not really surprised that this happend. Way toooo stressed & tired lately, both of us but still doing really good on the update. Hope you guys understand.

    Also extended the Event to November 10.

    Nice, but please reduce the spawn times for next events, this 1hr respawn is far far too slow.

    If you don't want to make any alternative ways to get the boxes, that's fine to me and I understand. Just please do something about the fact they're not farmable unless you just did a server reset. Yes, the rewards are good. (I managed to catch pumpkins early in the morning, but now during the day, it's absolute trash, you can be happy if you find one in 20 mins, and well gl getting candies that way) But out of 20 boxes, 6 were the good ones, 2 contained the rare stuffs, and then I didn't even get them because it's the same random select a tab and pray to rngesus to not be a total ass kind of box... And not everyone is blessed with a golden spoon in the mouth when it comes to rng. Guess it's back to afking all day at auction house until it actually becomes fun to hunt again, instead of trying to fish out a needle out of a haystack. :/

    tho it still isn't correct, pumpkins don't respawn after 1 hour, it is a total mess right now with random spawns and people roaming around non stop so you don't know where to begin. Person that reported the issue and documented it wasting a lot of his/her time should be compensated more than others, that's how it is in other games. Not talking about candies, just a small gift or any compensation would be fine but that's up to you.

    thanks for partly fixing the issue

    Can confirm that the timers arent correct. killed all pumpkins in a zone. put up a timer for 1 hour and after that hour nothing spawned

    I made it so people dont camp the spots. Its like i wanted. There are like 200 Available spawns and only like 40 will be spawned for example. So the positions are always different.

    What do you mean 1 person gets compensated for a small act ? That's just discriminating. It's either ALL or nothing dude. What do you have special that other people don't ? I don't think you went through it thoroughly after you posted that statement


    Honestly speaking here @Younha I didn't find much of a difference between the boxes you get from the halloween shop and the lucky fellow box 4. The main difference is that 1 costs 50 elluns to buy 1 and the other doesn't cost anything cause you get the boxes with candies

    are you high again Havoc? Everyone would feel the same as her, that wasn't a small act, it's been said how long it took to collect these candies. You cut my quote, that was a sugestion if you read it further. Stop attacking people in topics that have different purpose and flooding them.

    Really 40 spawn at a time? It's not a wonder we are wondering around like lost zombies not finding anything. Really make the spawn spots random but if only 40 spawn you need to reduce the respawn timer to 5 or 10 mins..

    Right now even it's painful to the point it's a waste of time.

    Dunno what you are thinking but seasonal events are suppose to be a fun short grind to get some free goodies for participating. This isn't a short grind for... maybe getting something decent.

    Hell even in Tera in the events where you had to collect letters to spell out TERA for a choice of free store mounts wasn't anywhere near a grind as this is.

    No am not high and please refrain from insults before this gets out of hand and act like a grown up for once. The thing is that ALOT of people reported this "issue" not just the person we're refering to. So it wasn't just that persons act that made the change ;) Who's attacking who dude ? you really need to work on that "trust" issue cause you got everything wrong once again. My post was all about that if a person is to get compensated for an act, the whole server should get compensated for it because everyone gave it their all and wasted alot of time for this event and NOT just 1 special person

    As I know, none reported it before me. People were just complaining in world chat, but none reported.

    as it stands. it would be better spending my time grinding alts for 3.5-4 hours to get 500 elluns and buy the store boxes then doing the event. and in my book thats just not worth the effort

    Also I don't think anyone in this thread trying to be a dick about this event, we know you guys have been super busy with the update, but you need honest feedback if you really want these event to be a success like I think you want them to be and for them to be something we will all remember joyfully instead of thinking ...MEH.

    If you see the beginning of this thread you'll find it FULL with people raging about spawn time and that the drops were really low so yeah luji you weren't the only one complaining and reporting that the event was broken and that it wasn't working as supposed to. To me this is the same thing as reporting it

    Immediately apologize for my English, I want to clarify, is it possible to add candy in dungeons, as drops from the bosses, as the chance of the candy pumpkins are very small I have 40 pumpkins any candy, despite the fact that tyk are very few, and still there are people who go to work and to play 3-4 hours a day. And they will be able to get the candy. Just at the moment the events more as anonizm, with so many pumpkins and candy from them.
