Event Schedules

Please consider making all seasonal events spawn continuously during their runs. Many players, like me, have work schedules that make it difficult to be online at the precise half hour windows when dungeons like Were-Chef spawn, etc.

It would allow all players to participate when they can and it might even encourage more players to buy gold shields for energy just to keep going. ;0)

I like that a lot of events have now been converted to raid format which is a lot better in most cases. The Halloween and Pirate events were garbage prior to their conversion. I like the dungeon format but it doesn't suit all play styles or schedules.

I think the only exception to this is the holiday goblin, I think that's fine as it is.

I whole hearted agree with a sort of continuous ability to obtain part of a special event. This spacing out of 3 hrs and then only for 15 minutes is an outrage. We have real lives and cannot stop everything to participate in a raid. Venan needs to make this game more user friendly or the character grave yard that exists will continue to grow.
I have already “burrried” 5 toons and was thinking of burring the last 5. My main game offers daily and weekly special events so I never have to wait long to participate in some fun event. This is my second year here and it is getting stale!

If all the raids were the same, that would be boring and stale in a game where there is little to no new content being added on a regular basis. Look at the Holigob as a challenge, for a change. The schedule is pretty simple...1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, and 22 CST/My time. Before getting your undergarments in a bunch and raging, try exercising some time management skills. The event runs for over a week and a half and that should be enough time to get any gear that you want for your toons if the player is willing to work for what they want. By the way, read the event description or ask around in global for a schedule, the Gob does pop up in non-onslaught raids too. God forbid if an event is a challenge and it isn't just handed to us players. Like in real life, if you want something it's there, you just gotta put in the time/work and go get it.


I think the people responding to cathbad are assuming that he doesn't know how the event works and that it pops up in raids too. His comment in the other thread was misinterpreted as asking for this when he was asking for continuous pop ups in raids so people couldn't miss the goblin due to missing spawns.

It is relatively easy to do this event but only from certain points of view. Some people work over the holidays and miss multiple spawns. There are those who regularly posted in forums asking for weekend events to be changed because unsurprisingly some people work weekends.

Let's have some empathy, especially considering the time of year. Not everyone has it as good as those of us who work relatively normal Mon-Fri jobs and take weeks off at Christmas. I'm lucky enough to have a job like that but many people don't.
