So, i thought it could be a good idea to know summarize (in a non wining way) the experience we all had in lost shores event.

I believe this would help gw2/arena net to understand our needs.
so list your ranking from 1 to 10, simply copy-paste and update your score (didn’t find a normal voting system - sorry).

1)graphics (1-bad...10-amazing) - [10]
2)sound(1-bad...10-amazing) - [7]
3)story concept/originality (1-boring...10-captivating) - [8]
4)loot/reward (1-lost all my money...10-gained amazing items) - [7]
5)stability (1-extremly buggy...10-no bugs) - [3]
6)network connection/speed (1-laggy,disconnections, 10 - perfect connection) - [2]
7)mini events length (1-to long/short...10-just right) - [10]
8)overall event length (1-to long/short...10-just right) - [5]
9)overall Satisfaction (1-worst experience ever,10-best experience ever) - [7]

6)network connection/speed (1-laggy,disconnections, 10 – perfect connection) – 10 (this game runs the best I’ve seen for having so many on the screen, you need a monster intel quad though)
7)mini events length (1-to long/short…10-just right) – 1 (Anything that wasn’t the dungeon or Sunday’s event, didn’t really work for me, I’m calling those mini’s)
8)overall event length (1-to long/short…10-just right) – 8 (If it all worked it was good, I would have aimed for a 2 hour finally vs a 3 hour one)
9)overall Satisfaction (1-worst experience ever,10-best experience ever) – 7 (Day one didn’t really work for me, I don’t like being forced into 5 man dungeons at all, day 2 going over the new zone was pretty good, I liked the final event, just a bit too long)

Dungeons in this game have to be rethought and I LOVE instance dungeons. DDO still being my fav mmo evah. This game is waaaay too restrictive.

I’d say Sunday was about the biggest waste of my time since Guild Wars 2 launched. I had friends log in to play on guest accounts that I was trying to convince to buy the game. They didn’t even finish the event and logged out halfway to the final battle in disgust.

1)Nothing innovative, I’ve seen many shores in other games (from range of 2003-2006) and they were looking same or even better
2)Well, there weren’t be many sounds, as fractals are nice, the rest of content didn’t shine
3)We’re fighting ancient creature while being led by whole new trading company? Where was Priory? What is even that company?
4)It’s nice to get exotics and 20-slot bag, but those random precursors just killed this event
5)Tons of bugs, many hotfixes must have been done, reward fixes are still waiting for release
6)Terrible lags, many people getting DCed, more lags
7)As every other event, pretty nice
8)Whole Lost Shores was too short, while 1-time events were taking too long, too much effort
9)Spent like 30 silver on reapairs just during event, another 20 silver because of lags and freezes, at least final drops refunded it. Still, waste of time

1)graphics 9
2)sounkittenpt the game muted, actually, and listened to rock music during the event, instead
3)story concept/originality 7, because of that NPC “CITIZEN” SPAM, and i did not feel like i got much lore from it to engross in. i did miss out on the first night’s event (the detective one) because it was all messed up for me.
4)loot/reward 10 – The Energizer precursor and Eir’s Longbow – my ranger is complete now one i get my T3 armor for her
5)stability 3 – the culling was pretty bad after being barrel-rolled – half my participating zerg disappeared!
6)network connection/speed – 5, but because i was downloading stuff on top of that otherwise 9
7)mini events length 6 – they had clear objectives but mostly killing or running took precedence – luring the ancient back to cave was yawn-inducing between cutting a tree down (which should have killed the ancient, frankly), using boulders + geysers, but the mortar section was boring. picked right up after that part.
8)overall event length 6 – was very long, but chest at end. wish it had chests after each part, though.
9)overall Satisfaction 7 – i got some good stuff (redeeming points). if i can continue to get good stuff, i might have found my new farming spot.

new map (which i wish was larger), good last event (with zerg, of course), but not many enemies actually drop loot – seems like anything below a veteran do (besides boss) drop things, which is saddening. all the work to kill a vet and nothing good comes from it.

Owain also was a highlight once the forum picked her out, i still cannot sleep at night without seeing her eyes again in my mind. it’s scary. she is scary. Pitching idea for her to get an escort quest back to lion’s arch.

1) Love the island!
2) THAT asura, sylvari shark event guy in SE of island – terrible annoyances.
3) I expect it was good, but missed every LA event due to lag/crashes…
5) Did crash each day, lost quest progress once.
6) Unplayable LA events, had to quit & retry finale, “move to” erratic.
7) The finale length <> reward ratio was justified, but still beyond my own endurance.
8) Felt too short BUT the island wouldn’t really hold up for a longer campaign.
9) Super finale loot & new attribute sets were ace, but – besides not wanting to see a karka any time soon – finale has just burned me out for a while… glad Lego LotR out this week!

Under stability I count the karka rolling over people before they even load on our screens as a bug, so that gets a 1. Why do mobs that can kill us fail to load, and instead it loads 30 players around me? I dont need to see ALL the players in PvE… I need to see the god kitten things that are killing me. The engine should be prioritizing mobs, thats just common sense.

Also the length of the clear karka presence events, which we had to do TWICE, was god awful.

My additional comment is that if the game doesn’t support that many people on the screen at one time, then you cannot design an event that is partially invisible more than half of the time. It’s not a bad thing to know your limitations. You’re supposed to work with them or around them, not just ignore them. It was more annoying than anything.

For a one time event, I appreciate the attempt but the bugs made it absolute garbage. Not being able to complete quests, etc, were very frustrating. Furthermore, the gear or rewards were not enough to motivate me to make this a must attend event. I like the concept and would like to see how you all improve it, but we all know you need to improve it.

The loot was unsatisfactory, I felt like I wasted my time as far as getting loot goes. There were no gear specific to the event, and 90% of the loot I got was vendor trash. It did feel like we were changing the island when it was introduced, which was awesome, but there isn’t any reason to go back. There aren’t events like Orr, where there there are long quest chains that end with a karma vendor or extremely rare crafting components. The rich Ori ore is the only reason to go back.

Missed all the events due to my timezone, so thats why the 0s =/ (I don’t think the buggy worthless mess of the scavenger hunts really warrants a score…)

Although sounds like even those that were able to do them found them long and boring too so I’m probably not too far off hah :P

I found the event very enjoyable after Phase 1, The linking of the events was nice having to push the ancient karka back taking bases to spawn closer to the fight.

ANYONE who actually looted the chest and stated anything less than a 9 or 10 for Loot is either lying to lessen the blow on those who were unable to loot, or un-educated on how long it takes to farm. The two guaranteed items plus 2 exotics results in an easy 30-50gold worth of treasure (25+ hours of farm through 3 hours of event) and some made much more than that. The rewards were over the top, its extremely frustrating that a crash prevented many of us to miss out on the chest and event completion.

I wasn’t even able to take part hardly, NPC’s were missing I found it buggy and frustrating and the last phase not at all as it was too short and doesn’t fall at a suitable time in my time zone.

I wasn’t able to finish the scavenger hunt as it was bugged non stop. Somehow despite being only a couple of days long the final event was just a nightmare, and I wish they hadn’t made the whole thing a three hour zerg fest of farming invisible mobs. Everything was either rushed or bugged to oblivion and not nearly as fun as the last event.

I love the game and really want to be constructive and supportive. But it comes to a point of “please sort your kitten out kkthx.” (and yes I did the events all the way through and made 30g off of them).

4)loot/reward (1-lost all my money…10-gained amazing items) – 4 While I love how they gave a high chance of Precursors from Ancient Karka (I did not get any) my main complaint is due the lack of decent loot from everything else.

Just being constructive, there were too many stability issues and it didn’t feel worth staying in Lost Shores.

Ancient Karka felt very satisfying to kill but the reinforcements phases lasted waaay too long, and the demolition part was a pain because champion karka took too long to kill.

Honestly, while I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed, I did expect better content.

Perhaps my main complaint is simply how annoying and difficult the Karka were. I had a harder time maneuvering here than in Cursed Shore… And the Drakes were annoying too!

I tried to do the precursor events. I thought I was just doing them wrong until I found out that most of them were fatally bugged.

I was disconnected three times from the final event instance, and never was able to finish on account of being kicked back to an overflow server every time I logged back in (third time was from a server restart).

I would also like to add that as a low level player ( my highest is lvl 33), The repair costs got so crippling that I ended up having to stop on the account of not having enough silver for repairs. This is after pooling most of the silver from my alts as well.

I don’t HATE the event. I more or less hate the things that went wrong with the event. There were some pretty big stability issues (that Anet has already acknowledged, and hopefully will address soon), and that is mostly what killed it for me.

I would love to see Anet make a suggestions thread (it would probably get a thousand posts in the first five minutes of it’s existence). I think a lot of people would have some very constructive suggestions on how the event could have been improved.

So in short, I like what Anet was trying to do. They just did not do it very well.

Phase 1 was a laggy mess i got up at 6:00am for, i couldn’t hit a karka because the lag was so bad i’d just die instantly before i could shoot..

I tried to follow the quest chains which were so cryptic i was lost and asking for help more than enjoying myself, which then turned to frustration at both quest lines being broken the whole day i played, the next day it was removed….

I attempted the new dungeons but i’ve yet to have a team fully complete it due to bugs and disconnections where we cannot get back in…

The island was pretty but very bland and incredibly hard to solo anything, my new ranger pet is a insanely weak variant of the mob (why?) very big let down on a chance to make rangers better…

The last day i had to work like everyone else so i completely missed an exotic a 20 slot box and a high chance at a legendary percurser. (really unfair). On top of it all my lag just gets worse and worse each patch (Australian)..

So obviously after this fiasco i’m looking for another mmo to fill my void.

Thanks.

1. I like the new map. I don’t find it absolutely amazing compared to the rest of the game, but I have no complaints, and the effort definitely shows.
2. Going neutral here; I didn’t actually notice any special soundtracks, perhaps due to the lag.
3. The story was a bit difficult to follow. I think that that the story would be more distinct if it was told in cutscene cinematics. However, I did get a general idea of the event’s premise.
4. Phase 1 – standard rewards for completing a dynamic event on a normal map
Phase 2- didn’t load properly on the map, so my friends and I all went to the island when it opened
Phase 3 – was there from the start, but got disconnected and couldn’t log back in again money earned <<< repair costs
5. Phase 2 didn’t load on my map. At the “end” of Phase 1, a giant Karka jumped out of the water. However, as soon as the cutscene ended, the event ended. The Karka did not appear; nobody killed it either.
6. Lag in Phase 1. Lag and disconnect and failed log-in attempts in Phase 3.
7. Phase 1 was exceptionally long for me considering the lag.
8. Both too long and too short. A “one-time-only” event prevents many players from participating. However, not everyone who chose to attend received a reward. Also, players began using the glitched maps to obtain multiple rewards on an event that was supposed to start and finish simultaneously. Therefore, the people who gain the most are those who exploit the event.
9. I don’t feel that the event was planned out very well. The new permanent content was fun, but perhaps the event should have been excluded if it would cause more problems than its worth.

I doubt that this was the intention, but this event has brought up a few concerns:
1. economic imbalance – a handful of people become incredibly wealthy
2. gear grinding – new gameplay model?
3. game exploitation – will there be any repercussions?
4. “chest” gacha items – following in Japan’s footsteps?

It’ll be the company’s decision as to how much control they would like to have over the economy. It’ll be the company’s decision as to whether or not they oppose game exploitation. Regardless of the result, I hope that there will be consistency as the game and its community expand.

Reasons for giving worst experience:
1. The event was way too short, and two major events are one-time only, left out a lot of players around the globe.
2. Grand Finale failed horribly. Honestly, if it weren’t for the timezone-difference, the bug, the game crash, the disconnect, or the so called "regular-maintenance-no-update-new-build" to kick all players out of overflow, I’m sure I’d have given it a way better score like 8.

I’m sure ANet has learned a lesson here. As we all know, the best experience was meant to be experienced last, and when players suffers the two points on the top, it really backfires heavily. I’ve lost a few guildies because of this.
