    To sum up, if I wanted to participate, I'd need to:
    1. wake up at 4 am
    2. click like crazy for 30 minutes (room mates sure would appreciate that)
    3. fight not only the other team but also the unfair conditions like running speed and style tab camouflage
    And after all that I could get a straw hat or nothing at all.

    I've seen many events in this game. Some were great, some not so much. But this one is probably the worst one so far. Even Caravan Joe Town was way better than this.

    Do we choose which team we join?
    If so on market channel we can just all agree to join one team to get a guaranteed win box.

    yes you can join one team as you choose, but I think it can only go 4 over the other team like for the 1st no one joined the red team only 4 ppl could join the blue one as someone said the game said the team was full when they tried. So we thought it was 4V4 only and next game 3 ppl joined the red team, and 7 were able to join the blue.

    Now that is what needs to be fixed.

    On another 'Fix CTW' thread I posted my story of how my friend and I did on a dead channel at 1 in the morning. At first it was 4 (Blue) Vs. 0 (Red), but the last ten minutes, two people joined red and rage quit over us playing 'unfairly'. Those idiots shouldn't of even joined tbh. They knew that they wouldn't win and yet they still raged like children. Sheesh, it's just a game anyway. 9dnGeIh.png

    But all of this would of been avoided if there was a better limit of people per team. Maybe delay the game a bit until both teams get an even amount of players? After a while the game would either automatically start anyway? It would give people a better chance to get to the event.
    Or just cancel that CTW round if team amounts aren't (close to being?) even, which I think is the worst approach.

    I'd rather have a capture the flag event with the titles than this event.

    I had to wait like two weeks just to do that event.
    cause there were people on every channel with boost mounts and i didn't have any boost mounts.

    Why I hate First Come, First Served style events. Often people camped the beaches for stuff, just to throw it all out.

    And the fact that the outfits weren't in the dressing room or allowed on pets.. aND THEY STILL ARE LIKE THIS TODAY

    Well i didn't have such problems, maybe first 3 days or so... But since the event was active for whole 3 weeks if not more, people had plenty of time to try and farm them. Not only we had multiple spawn times but we also had two spawn locations: Longa Desert beach and Port Qilla beach. Longa beach was usually empty, but i think it had less watermelons in there. We also have 7 channels to switch around. By the way, remember that Ruyuefeixue's Butterfly Fan? Yeah, that very rare item which is obtainable only in Barri Normal end chest. You needed a broken fan part and a repair kit which were both really rare and create it with Handicraft skill. It used to cost around 10m+ gold in Alexina. Lol, yup... After that event, they weren't even worth a darn 500k gold loooool. I'm glad this happened.

    Its just like the autumn field hats. They were from a really old event and were selling for 15mil the day before the fishing event came out.
    I wonder why.

    Sad thing is I doubt there is going be any changes to this super unfair unbalanced event. If they made it everyone on the losing team got box instead of just random members get a box and some don't, and let the winning team get 2 boxes as an incentive to try to win. Then it would help balance the huge time you have to waste 30 mins and waiting to each match as well as afk people causing one's team to lose. Who wants to waste 30 mins to lose cause of this imbalance pvp event to get nothing.

    No. The worst event ever was an event they announced by email and failed to pay out the rewards to everyone who participated. I'll be damned if I can remember the name of it offhand, but I do remember it being in the fall and I remember complaining about it on the old forum (now I know why the old forum was deleted - lol). That said, I feel bad for the team. They try so hard to satisfy everyone and seemingly can't (I don't think anyone can, but for fudge sake people .. give them a break .. or a little credit for effort).

    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

    I got 22 points got no box.
    Get 15 points gets box
    Lost both times.
    Honestly its just an event to waste time and hope you get a box.
    They should have made it everyone gets a box regardless theres no point in doing this event.

    Plus everybody keeps camping or hitting me but everyone on my team just lets them runs past :L

    It is as if this event was crafted to be the most unfun event ever designed by the human mind.

    :( Saw two players constantly being frozen by 7 others when trying to grab the melons. So I decided to help! They couldn't handle all 8 of us.

    i hate how everyone just joins blue because its closer to the moongate, I've been sticking with red since day one and we won AT LEAST 4 times this event, the rest is blue, the color blue is now on my hate list, elves are too fast, even with the music buffs they are unstoppable, i wasn't able to score once because all i do is defend, they should add something for defending teams give us a point every 5 minutes or something SOMETHING

    This is actually the "fix" for this event - if you can't beat em, join em.

    I only wish they'd hold it throughout the whole day so I can play Blue Team Wins during the weekdays too.
