I hate to sound like one, but apparently it's needed since there are little to no support for the game at the moment.
Rubber-banding, Server not responding zoning and the all time favorite constant booting. Are we seeing an actual server improvement any time soon? Any and all attempts so far have been small patches on an wide open wound that just bleeding out.
I think it's ridicules with those impaired servers, you find it ok to throw up an event. Super great idea. Let's load up the servers even more, despite massive amount of people need support, not more crap items for their inventory.
