Daily Scarlet Scrambler Survey
Desolation – dunno how many overflows on Gendarran fields. Managed to get the achievement although it stated that the event failed. Scarlet vanished at ~30% health with 20 seconds of time left.
On Stormbluff Isle, she blinked out with about 30% health, but still 10 seconds on the clock.
This happened about 20 minutes ago.
Worst daily ever as you have no control whether it will succeed or not.
2 fails at it and counting.
Got daily on 4th attempt

On Blackgate, we got her summoned but only had like a minute on the clock. We did not defeat her in time, but it did count for the daily achievement.
Tarnished Coast – out of about twelve runs, three defeated Scarlet. I got the achieve about three hours after Daily’s popped.
Forever known as “that slow guardian who can’t jump worth crap”.
Elona Reach [DE] success on first try (I was commander)
Sanctum of Rall. No success.
People just want to farm.
edit: I just did it! Was akitteng in Lornar’s pass cause I power up my quartz in the priory base. I come back and we have 8 mins and the final minion bar is at 30%. I can’t believe we actually did it!

Tarnished Coast – 5 attempts with no success. (all in overflow)
The problem seems, to me, to be associated with Champion farming. As soon as Aetherblades are up, that’s all anyone does. Even after the Aetherblade part of the event is complete, people continue to farm champs, making certain that we can’t complete the invasion.
People are also SUCH kittenes during these invasions. If someone goes down right in front of you, and you’re too much of a jerk to lend a hand, could you AT LEAST move away, so they have a better chance at getting themselves back up without being interrupted constantly?
Is not posible finish this event, because its full of “chinese farmers”. Anet said “we change mf gear coz is not good for teamplay” and well, what happened with farming champion guys? can u send they all to same overflow ? they dont wanna help the other to finish event… anyway thats another anet fail, coz they make easy farm. GG anet. I love ur bored farming events. Next time use “if event is not completed u lost all ur bags” maybe ppl learn to play and dont farm all day to disturb the normal players … bored game.

I did 2 invasions tonight.
- Overflow Lornar’s Pass – failed
- Overflow Blazeridge Steppes – succeeded
So… impossible it is not. Luck-based and largely out of your own control, yes.
I’m on Tarnished Coast, although since both servers were overflows, I guess that doesn’t matter at all.
Anyway thats worst than magic find gear and set.. no teamplay and u cant do nothing to finish it… only luck
Tarnished Coast. Two runs, neither of which defeated Scarlet. Attempts to nicely request that others help complete the event rather than farm in order to get the daily achievement to count towards the fast-closing meta were met with abuse.
I like the invasions. Participating in them is fun. However, the conflict between farmers and achievement-seekers is poisoning the community. Everything else in Guild Wars 2 is built so that one person isn’t going to lose out on a reward because another person is there. This event is an exception, and as fun as it is to participate in large-scale events, I will be very, very glad when the invasions become rare.
Tarnished Coast. Only had time to make one attempt last night. Got Bloodtide Coast. Map failed to complete all the events in time due to a mixture of events bugging and over-huge zerg collisions.
Still, I’m not that upset as I’ve beaten Scarlet before, and 1 AP doesn’t matter too much to me.
Yak’s Bend, 1 success out of maybe 20 invasions in the last week.
This was after roughly 50/50 success rate for the first few days.
Piken Square, 5 attempts, not even close. Easy mode like Gendarran and Lornar’s included. Commanders just called pirate farming and that was it. :P

During the daily period, zero, today one and the first time (out of maybe 20) that we got Scarlet in overflow. We got Scarlet on the only time I managed to actually play the event in the regular instance.
