Anything that doesn't make us log in at certain times.

I vote that we make it OS based similar to CoC and make it a raid like pirates could make everything much better.

I don't really have an issue with logging in at certain times - it certainly isn't what makes the Halloween event bad, and Tragick/WereChef/Goblin have had that format for a long time. Surely that's why Venan have it rotate through a cycle time of several hours, so all people in all zones can get equal exposure?

That said, some folk log in only when they have a chance, and if that means a spawn is missed, it's missed. 'Raid' style events are certainly a better way of addressing that particular issue. However that isn't what makes the event bad. Historically the Halloween event has overpriced items that require additional burning even if all spawns are hit to full with a 50e toon, and on top of a special item (lantern) that is supposed to make things easier.

People have been skipping the event for the last two years for reasons of price. What you invest does not equate to a fair way to getting a higher tier item like in other events. It's much more important that this is addressed, alongside the issue of slapping a diamond graver cost on top of event currency prices just to randomly make the item harder to get. A lot of players cannot afford either the silver or gs to get 5 diamond gravers, and having to do so artificially lengthens the time spent until getting the T21 ring without making that effort interesting or logical. Would've made much more sense to have the ring require a lot of components collected throughout the games' zones that you can get by investing time into it. We have other things we have to spend silver on (like enchantment components, runes etc) that make saving 5million silver ridiculous.

The difficulty of reaching the last phase of each spawn is the reason I suggested longer spawns. 5 hours would allow players to get to the last phase which would make the existing prices more achievable.

I see that someone posted it is optional to participate in events. I'm so thrilled!

Can somebody pls send me the raids and farming areas for t19 and t21 gear so I can get this outside of the events? Yeah...

My point being, unless you want your toons to suck, get whipped in PvP and never reach potential might, events really are NOT optional. Stop using that as a cop-out please.
Rather focus your energy on making things better like the other posts here are trying to do with their ideas. For which I'm thankful btw :-)

Right, if someone can't gripe like the rest of us, they shouldn't be allowed to post.....I totally am good with that ;)

Well they are free to make their own thread called 'why players love Halloween or kinda don't mind it'. This one is about the problems with it.
