Soccer is an outdated alternative British term for football, Americans need to update their dictionary.

Yeah, we'll get right on that right after we drop the Imperial system for Metric.

To you all outside Europe - 

 

Stop whining about that you want your flag or whatever also in the package. This is an European Event, I dont know how often people have to tell you that before it actually sinks in. This whole game of BDO isnt even a year old either, so stay calm, keep your pants on and dare to wait to see if there will be some Superbowl stuff or Chinese NewYear or whatever later on! Just wait and see and stop getting twisted. 

 

And as many also say, who cares how someone calls the game? Cities can also have different names or spellings depending on the language, so chill out, enjoy the event and watch some of the games on TV :)

I don't understand... You are making an in-game activity and putting Turkish Flag there and at the same time your blocking our IP for not to join this event. Funny... not at all...

As Turkey, we are outside of Europe according to BDO. But we played in EURO 2016. But our country is IP blocked because we are not part of EU. But our flag is there for an in-game activity and you can get your country flag if you can achieve. But we cannot enter the game because we are IP blocked. Confused :P

The game is called Football, not "soccer".

The whole world calls it football, except Americ*nts.

They say "football" when refering to a game where they run around with an egg-shaped object in their hands: "American football" ( also known as Handegg )

Perhaps there is a reason us Americ*nts call it soccer - maybe because our football dates as far back as your EuroPEON "football". Then again, if your knowledge of European Football and American Soccer were anywhere close to your moronic bias against the reason you're not speaking f*ucking GERMAN, then maybe your post wouldn't have been so STUPID. Your "handegg" is EXACTLY what the original European football was - irregular shaped objects such as animal skulls or animal bladders, much the same as original native Americans used those SAME centuries earlier before the "official" forms of football and soccer were introduced. Interestingly, the modern organized version of American football dates back as early as 1820, which predates European (British) formal football by about 20 years. So who had it first? Just because Europe, who's only OTHER singular accomplishment is forming a union that is falling apart and being -----d by Belgians, thinks that the game must be called football by everyone on the planet doesn't make it so. 

Tell you what, though. When you come save OUR ass, TWICE in 30 years, you can tell us to re-name our football something else.

 

Yeah. Idiot

Would it be possible to get an extension or drop rate increase for this event?  I'm a collector from events like this and the DDoS has really cut into my playtime for probably the most grindy event thus far.

Yes, an extension to the Football event would be amazing. I haven't been able to collect many of the flags yet. With the Valencia patch release and new events, there's so many things to do. @CM_Tytyes @CM_Jouska Please consider extending this event, even if its only by a week (so it ends with the rest of the Valencia events).

 

Added edit: Been farming Sausans main rotation 10+hrs a day for the past 2 days. With all this grinding, I've gained 42%, yet only 80 footballs. Don't you think the drop rate is a bit low? That equals 40 footballs per 10 hours, or 4 footballs per hour...
(note that I have more than 80 footballs, that's just the amount I've gained from the past 2 days)

Looking here -->  http://www.fifa.com/about-fifa/who-we-are/the-game/

I think we gotta hand this one to the Chinese :)

The very earliest form of the game for which there is scientific evidence was an exercise from a military manual dating back to the second and third centuries BC in China.

This Han Dynasty forebear of football was called Tsu' Chu and it consisted of kicking a leather ball filled with feathers and hair through an opening, measuring only 30-40cm in width, into a small net fixed onto long bamboo canes.

Nah, that´s what the Americans like to think, when they barge in or try to meddle uninvited.

Stop making these stupid events as drops.... They are clearly pissing people off. Getting in the way of other rare drops / ddos attacks etc.  I would've actually played this game and had fun over the past 6-7 months but I have felt forced to play to not miss out which I could already be max level but left burnt out everytime I learn what I need to do for some stupid event and I just don't want to even think about this game I've already missed out on some stuff like easter crap and that sakura pot. My experience in MMO's is that events are supposed to be easy and doable by everyone... this is just some way to force people into playing... I am lvl 21 and haven't had the time to even put any skillpoints in. I've killed thousands of beetles for a stupid hat because I didn't have time to level up which I could be max level once again instead of killing them but beetles were the faster option to get rum... It sucks when I need to get a better PC but forced to put up with lag on my laptop because of some stupid event. I've already been through the pain of quitting and then thinking I can come back to a game but then realise how much I've missed out on so don't tell me not to play, i'm only playing to not miss out so when I have a better computer it will be enjoyable. You know what.... just stop making items exclusive to stupid shit altogether or guarantee this stuff will all come back next year for everyone. It makes me sick how much people can rub shit in others faces simply because their grubby nose was in it first, most people probably don't even know there was a freaking forum to look at for these events and I would say they quit because that's what I did once (EA can suck my bawlz). It really is even worse to miss out on something when you are present during the dates/times but simply cannot understand it properly because you maswell be a level 50+ and kill higher level shit for easier drops. _l_ your foolsball event

I agree, events should be fun. These past few events have been far from fun. The rum event required 600 rum, which is a lot for some people, but the droprate wasn't too bad. These footballs on the other hand... 490 footballs needed to collect everything? This is honestly too much for an item that drops so rarely.

As I mentioned a few posts above, I only got ~2-4 footballs an hour while grinding at Sausans. This is with a party, lv8 node, 3 pets (2 T4, 1 T3), and actively looting corpses myself. I'm sure you CMs can vouch for this since you play the game as well. How is 490 footballs even remotely possible for people who want to afk, do lifeskills, and not grind everyday for 3-4 hours a day? I'm at 204 footballs myself, which seems to be more than most of the people I've asked in my parties. The average appears to be around 100-150 footballs. Of course, these guys don't care about the event and most don't even know what it's for. That's why you aren't seeing many posts on this thread asking for increased rates/extention/etc - most people don't care about some measly flags and a trophy, not because the rates are actually fair. The pirate event offered cool appearance items, and who doesn't want free eyepatches and hats? 

All I ask are two things:
1) Please extend the event by one week so that it ends on the 20th, the same day as the Valencia patch events. I've been grinding hours everyday to try and get the 490, 40 a day for the next week should be enough.
2) Consider making future events that incorporate lifeskills, or allow lifeskills to yield the drop as well (even if at a lower rate). Don't make grinding the only way to obtain event items. Some games have event items that are temporarily craftable, why not add that in BDO?
