Dont agree at all, the event is fun, great cosmetic rewards and gear rewards. You get 3 candies in 30 min ffs. And for professions you also can recover energy.

...the guys the do event for black desert? honestly i have neeeeeever seen such bad events in any game so far. Every event is the same "grind enemys for many many hours each day do get something crappy" and BUY this new stuff for 100$$

PLEASE take a look at other games how events are dont right. i certainly wont grind 10000 mobs for 1 dumb candy.

No, please dont.

And while you are firing that guy...sack the guy who said "The smoothest, fastest and fairest and indeed ONLY way to introduce Awakeneings is clearly doing it one at a time with two week gaps. Any other way might involve us actually dong stuff."

What is there to complain about?  They are essentially giving anyone a shot at some very good gear.  The only price of admission is an easy drop from all over.

This just makes me want to laugh. I have said this like thirty times it feels like, but one more for the road:

Imagine grinding mobs all week long and getting SEVEN candies. To get those seven candies I tried every tip and chased every chance. I got SEVEN candies. Imagine reading what you guys are saying if you had seven candies after following every bit of advice you could dig up for hours. Imagine watching your mates all whine cuz they get free memory frags and you can't even get a candy that day? That's what's happening to me. It happening to others too. It's not happening to you. It's like you guys are saying "I don't get why that guy is so upset about having cancer. I mean...I don't have cancer and I feel fine."

I am really genuinely pleased that most people are having fun. I just found out my "luck" in a game where everything is RNG is totally crap.

oh yeah. This event is absolutely freaking  awesome man. F*ck Halloween.

World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Skyforge... all games with great seasonal events.

BDO... just a cash grab exercise, with a little decoration.

I can't now...but I will happily get a screenshot of my lonely little seventh candy when I get online tomorrow. Why can't people understand? It isn't an issue for everyone, but for some of us the candies are rare as rocking-horse shit.

Yeah i get one every 15 min or so and people say they cant do the event once per day cause the drop is so rare lol. 

RNG is what is killing this game. 

Some people are getting one every 15 minutes or so... some people aren't getting any after grinding for 5+ hours. 

They NEED to take a look at how random the drops are. Time invested is not being rewarded fairly. 

A bit of RNG can be fun. Black Desert takes it to a ridiculous extreme. 

I'm beginning to think that the code for the game is bugged, and they don't want to admit it.

Coming from Everquest of old...I wouldnt mind seeing one or two people On Kakao's end do volunteer events like....

Bheg has gotten loose and is roaming the countryside !!!! Find and defeat him before he ravages the villages !

The Dim Tree Spirit has awakened and returned to the darkner parts of the forest.... Confront and defeat him to return him back to his Forest home.


Hell I would volunteer to be a Volunteer Adventure GM To run events like this.

Agreed, I spent over 4 hours grinding Helms and Abandoned Mines during guild quests and got not a single candy. And that is from (just an estimate) killing 1500+ mobs

Nothing is hard about it. It is just completely rng. I've had days where I got 3 in under 10 minutes, then other days where I had to spend 8+ hours grinding and gotten 2. The event feels less like an event and more like a casino game that doesn't actually reward time spent playing the game.

Kakao have really good events with xp boost and free gear and goddies.Im coming from aion where each event was pay to win and crappy rewards.For example in aion it was a event called lottery event where you coud buy tickets with realy money and having a chance to get a stone wich you cound't aquire in game .So when you make posts like this think twice , i really like how they handle this events.Also when in aion a major update they'r maintenance was starting at 10 AM and finish at 1/2 AM and here you cry because of 7 houres.

The game isn't dying first of all.   And this one cant be blamed on rng.   If most people already have 30+ candies in thier inventory (which most my guildys do) then it is obviously not hard to obtain.   Most likely a 1-2% drop rate,  which is pretty easy to get.  

The only extreme i feel bdo takes as far as rng is the TET/PEN upgrades blowing up your current upgrade.   Can cost certain people billions and others millions.

I agree with you on almost everything. 7 in a week for me....so "Obviously not hard to obtain" is total bollocks.

I will say it again.

Not everybody is having this problem. I am, I think, the only one in my guild who hasn't claimed a reward box everyday. Some players have only claimed one box. Everyone who is hard up for candy are extremely bloody happy for you guys NOT getting screwed by this. Though each time I say that it gets a little less true. Please read more than one or two posts before commenting on something, because when I keep seeing post after post telling me how f&@%ing easy it is to get candy it just reminds me how insanely unfair this is for me and those deemed unworthy of sweets.

The RNG is definitely a bit weird. I'm mining the same spot for days, and sometimes I get 3 candies in 1 hour. Sometimes I get 0 candies in 3 hours. Same mobs, same gear, same times.

My runs last about 1 hour before my inventory is full and my weight is at 140%-150%. I've usually got about 2000 stacked items to sell, from 800-1000 kills. In the end I cant complain though, because I'm netting about 12-22 million silver for each 3 hour grind session, depending what my reward value was, or if I even got a reward. For reference, my level is 50, and I'm wearing my luck level +5 gear to maximize grinding drops.

Spent many hours grinding mobs for my alts to level..... total of 4 candies...if you're running an event remove the Fecking RNG.

Also spent too much money on this game for costumes that are character only... have a look at GW2..all alts get the costumes.

I really enjoy the game as there is so much to do...

But if you want to retain the few players left...... make the events fun FFS

 

thank you

 If most people already have 30+ candies in thier inventory (which most my guildys do)

This makes me suspect a bug if it's true that entire guilds are getting more favorable results verses other players. 

Either that or... massively failed RNG. 

The time invested in the game should be overall more important than "luck/chance"

I know people who have gotten a candy every 15 minutes. Others have gotten only 1-2 the whole event. About the same time played. What's going on?!

not sure man some people just get it more often as presumably % chance must be same for all mobs unless this is not true. To me the candies drop at same rate as golden daggers. I will take golden daggers instead please as I don't need Cron stones that much. Not sure people get sweet stuff this event has been shit to me, but rng is rng I guess what can you do. But for 30 candies I should of farmed prolly 30 hours non stop. ( I exaggerate so 15 hrs)
