This event bites the big one as an epic fail.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

When it was realized that the event wasn't happening, the announcement should have been removed.

We know that things don't always work in MMO land, but to be in denial, and acting as if everything is working as intended is quite aggravating for those in whom you have created expectation.

I'm just waiting for PWE to point fingers at someone else (again....)

Yea... I noticed that too... it seemed to work for some events until the first normal 3 hour bonus event... then got switched off and that was it. After that, I never got the bonuses and seemed to get even less than normal moving forward.

What part of "not everyone" did you not understand. No, it is not your God-given right to whine. You can make the mods aware of the situation without whining about it. Grow the frak up already.

As consumers, we have the responsibility to bring to the attention of management anything we see that is wrong. That does not mean we need to whine about it. There's a right and a wrong way to do this. So when I say quit your whining, I'm not saying don't inform the devs, I'm saying quit acting like Cryptic owes you anything....They don't.
is people like you that allow governments and companies to get away with murder

I like how Cryptic are all 'deal with it' while continuing to promote it as if it wasn't bugged to Gre'thor and back.

More irked by the fact they left the announcement up, I could live with it being broke but leaving the event notice up is wrong.

Oh come on guys, it's the thought that counts!


But seriously, this is one giant utter fail from Cryptic's part. Not because the event is not working, but because Cryptic didn't even acknowledge the problem and left the event and the news visible and prominent like nothing happened.

Isn't this what you call a false advertising...? Because basically that's what it is - "hey, look, we're running an event, come play during the weekend and you'll get some bonus marks!". I guarantee you most people and casual players won't even notice something's amiss. They'll come and play the game thinking they get bonus stuff, while in reality they don't get a thing.

I've played numerous different missions during the weekend and aside from the regular in-game 3 hour event I've got no bonus marks from any mission I've did. The only bonus came from some STFs, but it's the same thing like bonus BNPs you've got a chance to get, so it's not connected to the event at all. And no, it's no display error as well - I kept double checking the amount of marks I had before a mission, how many I should have gotten, and how many I did end up with. No bonus marks at all, neither from PvE Queues, nor dailes.

Disappointed is a mild way to put it. Because I can forgive Cryptic for all the bugs they eventually try to get fixed or other stuff they keep messing up. I can't however ignore the fact that they basically didn't even bother to cancel the event or acknowledge their error.


The thing they should do now is to fix this bug asap and then extend the event for the whole week. But I'll be surprised if they'll do so... Makes me wonder if they'll fix the Cold Storage lobi crystal before the FE re-run is over, which is another one of their flop.

Yeah that "You are getting it, it's just not showing on the rewards" was the biggest load of guff I've ever seen. The three hour bonus event always displays the bonus marks along with your other rewards in the total. They were just scrambling at nonsense to try and stop us from noticing that the entire weekend event has been a disastrous waste of time.
