So, with another event ending in confusion about items being deleted or not and the (in-)ability of European players to still hand in those last few blossoms...

... I figured it might be well worth asking if there will be one of those amazing awakening event series again for DK ? You know, those fantastic events right after server maintenance where the fastest 300 or so unemployed get rewarded for their dedication to the game.

Yes? No? Miscommunication? Would be truly a shame if people went to collect their welfare checks at that time or couldn't manage to take a day off work and miss out on this fantastic chance to obtain the best title ever!

Uhm it was as clear as day from the moment they announced the details when it would be not available anymore to be traded in and when the items will be deleted. Not sure if you are one of those that didn't read it properly but anyone claiming that it was confusing has no ground to stand on with that argument, sorry.

....Why?

7 hours is just fine for literally shoving new code into an existing one, then making sure it can work together. Would you be totally fine with a 2 hour down time and have so many bugs you cant play at all?

Because u should have it tested already, and for deployment u need only make backup (full as something go wrong) and update database and write new file, they should have image of servers or game file, so it shouldn't be installing, only coping, and it take little time, best be if they put new version on each server and on DT only switch which is running, so after DT they only drop old one. For this steps u not need so much time. And after it u should only test if something not go wrong (0.01%) all servers are same, so if work on one and no problem with lunch others it should be all good. Most time may take upgrade database, because it only cannot be prepared before, so DB server is bottleneck in this (update structure, delete/mark some records like with expired event items, add new one) but it not take 2h... at most it shouldn't. 

Is not easy to make it all, but if u work on it, with time is possible, like Eve Online make 15min DT, they have all ready and tested. You test migration on test server with mostly live old copy (some relation is hard to reproduce), so problems are minimized.

Is it really necessary to have this kind of discussion every single week at maintenance?

I think, yes. Maybe they start doing something about it, or if they do, mention it.

I personally don't think anyone owes me an explanation about what is being done at maintenance and how long it takes. That's none of my business and neither is it yours.

Yes it is, since they even cut the value pack.

What would be the difference, really? We always have bugs no matter how long it takes them to implement new code into the game. Lately it's been old bugs that they've previously fixed, but for some reason can't fix again till the next patch.

  Zipped through to 71% and then hung.  Just left it alone (it's not like there's any huge rush) and the download completed about 2 minutes later.  No problem

  I'll admit that I'm not closely following it, although it does sound intriguing, however, if it's still in "concept" stage - then fall for us (at the earliest) if we're lucky ;P!

Even Kakao can do it in less than 7 hours apparently, so it's a safe bet to say that blind monkeys can do it in less than 7 hours.

Hi Alicia,

Here is the link about the event you mentioned: 
You can find all event details under the "Event" section on our forum. I hope that is what you were asking for.

*Keep in mind that event links are not always attached to the Patch Notes, therefore we suggest to check event pages every now and then to be sure you won't miss it.

Have fun and embrace the darkness!

Hi Yuki,

Thank you, that was precisely the kind of event/announcement I had been looking for.

Gotta admit though, I do find it a bit disappointing that nothing has been done about this event series in regards to availability/accessibility. Servers come back up in the middle of the afternoon (EU) or morning (NA), meaning that this event is inaccessible to anyone with actual real-life commitments like work, school, etc. Would it really be so bad to adjust the event to something like awarding the title to everyone completing it on the first day of the awakening? Or even the first week? Due to the nature of a MMO, such a title still retains exclusivity over time.

This whole event series very much feels like you are cheating those kind of customers who are potentially in a position to fund the game long-term.
