    Halloween Event: "Come Hell or High Water"

    Attempting to play 'The Settlers Online' at this moment is Hell...

    And after this Halloween Event --> I suspect I may be looking for High Water (with significant alcohol content) to drown my sorrows in... ;(

    So disappointed and frustrated right now, I don't plan on even trying. Adventuring is painful. How do we get the rebarbative refills if adventuring is still crippled? Oh, right...THAT'S why so many gem sales! We are expected to buy gems to achieve event objectives...we are expected to spend real money. Ya know, after so many months of little to no daily (well, nightly for me) playing, I'm starting to realize TSO was more of a habit than it was fun. What a shame.

    I was planning to try. Not 100% the event but at least get the main things. This last update was dreadful, and I won't hold my breath that the second hotfix will help. I might still try to dabble in the event, but we're going in the wrong direction.

    Mummified geologist is a good replacement for the thorough geologist I suppose.

    Another buff building, and this one doesn't seem to be of any use either.

    Some of these bundles seem decent, but I don't see the game as being playable enough to get that many pumpkins. Likewise for the blacktrees and ghost lanterns I was hoping to get.

    I remember when game events were eagerly anticipated. People used to get excited about them. I don't know anyone who feels that way now. The game is so messed up that even simple routine things take forever. The game crashes at the smallest excuse. And adventures, even for those few who are actually willing and able to run them, are an exercise in frustration. A game should be FUN, not frustrating!

    I know BB won't accept this feedback, but I really, really wish they'd listen to the players and cancel events until they get the game running properly again. Not looking forward to this one. Having to run adventures to keep the pumpkin patches refilled is, frankly, something I'm dreading.

    For the long time players that keep saying cancel the events try to look at it as a new player. I know it will not be great but the chance to to get your first YGG and other specialists is huge for them. So for me i just accept that the events will not be great so i do what i can and hope for improvements in the future.

    Worse than the adventures is the explorer situation. It's gone from taking 3 times as long to now it's taking me 5 minutes just to send 1 explorer. We've entered a state of complete absurdity. Before Anniversary, I complained that the game was unplayable, but actually I managed fine, though it was still frustrating. Now it takes me 10-15 minutes to drop a couple buffs, send a couple specialists, and make a book.

    The suggestion had been to cancel the events and just give people free loot. I can see from the perspective of a new player how important some of these items are, so I'd be more inclined to slog through them if I were newer. The risk of the events is that people just get annoyed and give up. Once people give up, they may not be coming back.

    and those players don't seem to have as many game problems either - the lower ones have even been able to run adventures since this update.
