    Blue is the cooler color XD.

    And people whining about elf speed is kind of annoyin'. There's an event goin' on right now that's Giant only, it's nice havin' an event where bein' an elf has the advantage. Besides you can just play the event on your elf if you're so salty about unfair speeds. Also things like Wave Sweeper and Fleet Feet make the speed argument invalid anyway. I myself have neither.

    But I do agree that this event wasn't very well thought out. I'd like it if the following changes were made:
    - All members of both teams get a prize with members of the winning team receiving 2 boxes instead of 1.
    - Only team members who have scored 5 or more points for their team can receive a prize box.
    - At 10 min to match end, no new players may join.
    - Style Tab should be disabled (not that I really care about this part but so many people are whining about it. I have no problem tellin' what team people are on)
    - As far as speed goes just disable March Song, Wave Sweeper and Fleet Feet. I see no real reason to reduce elf/giant speed other than to appease salty humans lol
    - And let the event go on all day for cryin' in a bucket! this narrow time window is really silly

    Yes, yes I realize I've stepped on some elf-basher toes, but oh well an elf can only take so much ;P

    I am glad the rewards are not worth my time to suffer from Nexon's idea of fun,

    they think its fun on paper but when you really get into action? its just....blasphemy to the name of "Event"

    I should look at every "Event" as a battlefield between Nexon and You.

    they should just strict everyone of buffs, pets, clothing, and only force characters to use basic skills.

    I don't care about the race benefits, be an elf if you want speed for what i care. Making it a "Complete" unfair event is no event at all but a spit to our face saying "Here is your event my money tree, enjoy." The event speaks for it self.

    Please even with fleet feet as a human you still get out sped by a giant and can't even catch an elf. Fleet feet humans can only outrun non speed humans. Also, events that are pvp based shouldn't give a race benefits that just unfair. That like making a melee pvp event were duel wielding races would trump the elves that would be unfair.

    well I just wasted 30 minutes on a team I was forced onto because the other team was full. this team lost by over 300 points and even though I got 5 points I didn't get a box. Yeah.... such a good event

    giphy.gif

    Well if you want to avoid wasting time even if your going be on the loser team just come a bit later, since you can join late just I think 5 mins when the match ends is when it locks out new members. But, if your going lose theres a high chance you won't get anything still. Someone ingame said only 1 person on the losing team gets a box.

    This event is just creating more racial tension between giants, elves, and humans. :S

    I swear, this event is such garbage. Not only is there the complete lack of automatic team-balancing or movement speed equalizing, people could also exploit the fact that those not participating in the event could influence those who are via Shock and March Song. There isn't even a consolation prize for most players on the losing side, even after enduring 35 minutes of this nonsense.

    Elves don't have dual-wielding nor FH and Final Shot ain't cuttin' it even if we do get our current level up to 100, that 100% archery aim rate is still heavily reliant on lagless-ness. Again, might I point out that there is a Giants ONLY event goin' on right now?

    And to sum up everythin': The doctor didn't smack ya on the butt when you were born and say "Life's gonna be fair."
    Yes this applies both ways.

    Considering elves always seem to get shafted in this game, I don't see a problem with their speed for this event. It plays exactly the same as the last time this event was released.. Not sure why people are getting all up in arms about it now.

    Well obviously the complaints to Nexon itself wasn't enough to make them alter the event.

    This event blows.

    -For us East Coast, we have to be on at 9 PM for the first slot, and wait or play 30 minutes. That is way too late for a great deal of people in the US. Make it every hour or so.

    -People just need to AFK on the winning team than legitimately participate, while those who do participate are rewarded nothing for being on the wrong team. That is a load of bull, especially since it can become apparent early on who can win.

    -The lack of team balancing means that AFKing is much more viable since it does not take up slots. However, people on the losing team are less likely to participate for long if the losing gets too heavy. Teams that look balance may fold as the actual number of participants on one side dwindles due to the snowball effect. This makes an Anti AFK Feature incredibly important as well as a balancing act concerning numbers.

    -Bards cannot participate and use bard skills, yet people who set up bard parties can only accept members of one particular team on a first serve basis, locking out others from said buff. This is both huge and a bit unfair, since bards get nothing for their services, meaning that there are few willing to do it, and when they are, the dibs makes the fight won before it is fought. Make it so bards can play in matches, or that buffs do nothing.

    -Uneven speed boosts with no compensation. Why can't Giants carry two melons, and humans can return stolen watermelons that drop, and elves be the quickest? Or otherwise just nerf it to human speed.

    -What is the point of dropping a water melon, really? The effort it takes to turn your own back to your base is too much for no real gain. It is not winning, but slowing down the losses. Make it so that picking up a stolen melon automatically transports it to home base.

    -No consolation prize is worst in these events than rewarding players both. I got an idea, why not reward two boxes to the winning team and just one to the losing?

    How is it giant only, when everyone gets a free card to actually do it? I do not find the comparison palatable. I think you have to walk a mile in someone's shoes, and see that despite wave sweeper and such, Elves have an inherent bonus that cannot be diminished when the equipment is largely all race anyway.

    And yes, to appease salty humans. Somehow, it is a bad thing to address inequality in a basic competitive element. Complaining about complaining is inane. Not caring for or being annoyed by isn't a determination of the legitimacy of said complaints, and saying that one should not complain in general is not to address the complaint itself, but a proclamation of your displeasure as if it had anything to do with the argument. Where would we be if we did not complain about this or that?

    I do not mean to offend you, I am just sharing my thoughts. If I had been too rough, I apologize for my brusque manner.
