    What's even the point of making each item's giveaway 3 hours long if the item can be won within 2 minutes? Should have made the giveaway on top of each hour and be done with it...

    I think the way they went about this event was very shortsighted in almost every aspect, to be completely honest. People swarming around the event NPC trying to crash people, blocking the NPC altogether, etc. At the very least they shouldn't have encouraged everyone to clutter all in one spot.

    I also don't think this is the way to go about making divine weapons more "obtainable". Been gathering materials somewhat successfully for a Divine Blade and now they're just slapping it into someone's hands lol

    To be honest, when I read how the event worked I was really disappointed, and I didn't even bother to login. It's not even about the potential prize (I could care less about it). For one, I can't imagine what the lag was like on the Nao server. And for two, I really don't like events such as this one where you are required to login at a certain time slot just to take part.

    The lucky channels make it worse because whoever tried to switch to it immediately got logged out.

    A very poorly planned event.

    You don’t know what the lucky Chanel is until the event has started. If you change channel, you will NOT be getting that legendary weapon. It’s rubbish from the start. You don’t even have a cool down period before the event starts. The space you need to fit in is tiny. Not to mention, they like to make it hard to know what is happening just from the announcements.

    Yes, the switching to lucky channel won't help. It's best to just stay and hope that you are in one and spam talk to NPC to get into a line before most players... Fun.

    Not that I wanted the item anyways.

    Like I was expecting the legendary weapon to actually be legendary and it would last like at-least 1 hour so everyone got a chance but no, it's going to go away in 5 minutes, barely anyone gets a chance.

    I guess we will see what the rest of this event will be like in the next 5 minutes.

    Imagine having a clusterfest of an event in the midst of a pandemic quarantine as if this amazing server +-poor engine would be able to handle the load.

    Also the one who won in Alexina was the 5th one in queue, so that's not even full two minutes.

    Second raffle lasted 16 minutes. Also a lucky bonus channel win. Sounds like there's really no point in trying on other channels that aren't the lucky bonus, but even then you waste some time switching to those for a spot.

    I think I've had enough of this event.

    The way the system works is indeed a raffle. When the item goes up a number has already been selected. Rather than going through ALL the numbers someone just has to get the lucky number. Once the player with the lucky number that has already been selected goes up the raffle is over. This potentially saves everyone time.

    The system is fair and it works. What isn't fair is all the alts.

    Then this is a nonissue.

    Hope you get better soon.

    You have to get your ticket from the npc first and then afk on the carpet. But don't afk too long or you might miss out on being able to get another ticket after yours is called.

    That divine blade is going to have soooooooooooooo many alts it's going to crash everyone. :scream:

    I guess this is the kind of event where it pays off to be a night-owl.
    Better chances for winning that «Legendary Toilet-Paper» ...ahem... I mean... Divine Hand-Out.

    What you guys don't like events designed for people who buy duped gold from chinese sites distribute it among their alt accounts and run auto clickers in virtual machines to get some base grade trash weapons so they can LARP they have something good?
