Hi everyone,

We’d like to provide you with a quick update on the situation.

We’re still working on fixes to the Lost Shore events (related to NPCs Canach, Noll and Fahd al’Eshadhi). We have no ETA on when fixes will be deployed but we’re working as fast as possible to bring them to you.

We’ve also made a few changes to react to the lag that some players have been experiencing.

We’ll update you as soon as we know more.
Thanks.

I hope the commendation vendor is a bug too… The things she sells are quite possibly the biggest rip off ever.

This is hilarious, it’s the biggest understatement I’ve ever seen.

Lion’s Arch across whole worlds and overflows was frozen solid for pretty much everybody.

This means we will be able to play without lagging each time as soon we get close to a event?

If you truly feel that’s an accurate statement.. that’s really discouraging.

edit: I just want to elaborate. ANet sent out one of those in-game mails instructing everyone to flock to Caledon Forest to fight back a karka invasion. According to my own observations and all the complaints spamming in-game chat, everyone was experiencing:
- delayed response in ability casting just while heading towards the event area
- massive lag while at the event area, including a complete lack of sound for the first few minutes, no visible players, no visible karka monsters – just loads and loads of AOE spell effects and the occasional karka corpse eventually littering the landscape.

Your team has openly admitted there are big culling problems with your rendering that need solving, so I simply can’t understand why you continue to release events that cast a huge, ugly spotlight on these issues.

Hey aNet – considering you’ve been relying on Twitter for the last few updates on this, do you think you could add a Twitter widget for the @GuildWars2 feed to the sidebar on these forums? Not all of us use Twitter and only learned that you were communicating with users in regards to this by reading about it in the map chat channel.

Thanks for the update. With two more phases coming up, hopefully everything will have been fixed while there is still time to do it .

Please fix the FoM dungeon bugs! Can’t join my group if I crash/dc.

THIS! I know might be a tiny bit off topic cause this thread isn’t about FoM…but really it was introduced with this super duper buggy patch and if anything, it is the most frustrating thing so far, I m still trying to get past that difficulty 1 cause of all the dcs or quittings…

I would like to personally thank the Guild Wars 2 team for their hard work in bringing us new content and an enjoyable game. I know there are some issues that you are addressing and I am happy for your support late into the hours on a Friday. I’m also honored that you are keeping yourself away from family and friends in order to provide free additional content to your customer base.

I understand the frustration people are experiencing, but I personally believe their comments are out of love for the game rather than a personal attack on you and your fellow employees.

Keep up the good work, and make sure you have some good tasty coffee on hand.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

maybe you should reduce the map population during these events, that way people would be spread throughout more overflow servers and the big events (like the karka invasion) wouldn’t be 3fps, 2000 ping zergfests.

What I’m worried about are the parts where I can sidekick with my significant other.
How much less time am I going to have exploring the Lost Shore events with her if I can’t even get to them in the first place?

You guys do such great work on your events and despite all the naysayer trolls, it has been a fantastic success eventwise. Iron out the bugs like these and there will be nothing but sunshine and rainbows on the forums I am sure (hey I can dream cant I?).

Thanks for keeping us updated,

I would like to suggest putting Fahd and Canach as a bigger priority, for Myani’s letters are annoying but can be deleted, and Noll hasn’t been bugged on most of the overflows I’ve looked at while Canach and Fahd have.

Also, it seems that Canach and Fahd have two bugs each:
Canach:
1. Isn’t there.
2. Is there and says to fight him, but he still appears as a friendly(green name).
Fahd:
1. Stuck saying that he needs a moment to collect himself.
2. Won’t move at the beginning of what appears to be an escort event.

Anyway, fight what cannot be fought.
(Edit: the bugs, not the karka)

I’m going to join the +1 crowd on making this a stress test.
Not everyone can be here all weekend long and you’re expecting a lot from those of us who planned our weekends around this event.
I don’t like “you only have 24 hours to do this content” anyway, but especially when it then is riddled with bugs to the point of being unplayable. Lag is just icing. Very annoying icing.

But if you don’t at least extend this event… that’ll be sad. I’m a huge fan and supporter of Anet and I believe you guys give incredible content. But being friends with people who have a really rough work schedule to wrap around this content, I really wish you’d lay off the “ONE TIME EVENT” stuff. :c

Also: Please let us know things like how long every part of the event will be around.
Will donation packages/commendations/awards stay past the weekend or do we have to cram in as much of that as possible? This is stuff that the people with schedules need to know so they can enjoy your content. PLEASE answer this question.

noll and his gaurd buddy bugged (gaurd just laying down but at full hp, both green), water events both bugged, Largos says give him a secound but does nothing other won’t start next chain after rescuing her.

TBH i hope they DO NOT release next phase unless they have seriously tested the fudge outta it, this is getting a little silly now, it might reach the “greatness” of the Hatchery bug ^^

I appreciate that you’re aware of the bugs and that you’re working on this, but I hope you decide to extend this event a little. with it only lasting one weekend having a bag that stops people progressing the event’s story means the window of opportunity to complete it has gotten even shorter.

Couple hundred people waiting on a fix for this in several instances. It would be very kind if you would that a moment and update us as to the ETA on a correction so we could return to the game and come back when corrected.
People are starting to get frustrated with GW2 and ArenaNet and this is just adding to their frustraion.

I’m a bit disappointed, aside from all the issues, this was the ONLY day I had to enjoy this event. I am disappointed in that I can’t complete the first part of this event. I’ve been on since the event started. Hoping that something would happen that would make it so I could, at least, do part one. 11 hours later, still can’t go on. Bummed. I hope that the people invited in for the free weekend don’t hold this against ANet.

11 hours of play and not much to show for it. Bummed.

Unplayable event is unplayable. Please run this through next weekend, or run it again next weekend.-

As stated above this actually should be the thing your focusing on, I am glad my friends already have been playing or played GW2, and I didn’t invite any to this embarrassment. Do the right thing for your player base. I feel like this was a beta weekend event for stress test on servers!!

It would be a phenomenal step in the right direction to have the event happen again with all the same epic qualities, (minus the un-playability and broken events, npc’s) this next weekend to show you actually care and want new players and keep existing ones as well as trying to get back those who have rage quit.

1. you realize that it affected not just some of the players but all of your players.

2. It would also show that you care enough about your player base to do it right, as well as extending the invites to friends to a “try again” weekend. We need more players. I don’t think this was a good showing for the ones invited.
