    All of them
    Towns are not event maps. In GMS if someone spawned mob using monster sack and you die in town you lose exp. Generally if a GM summons monsters for event there is a command they use that prevents people from losing exp. It seems that they forgot to turn it on in this case.

    no and no.
    This is not official gm event it is a complete manual one.

    eventmap has to be enabled manually in this case (and perhaps forgotten as I did myself ahahaha)

    Normally I don’t care for people getting flamed on the forums but my god this dude needs to learn how to take an L.

    If you think about it for 5 seconds, why would there ever be a reward for a GM spawning a bunch of bosses in towns OnionYawn

    This is great info.
    Say if the command to stop losing exp has been turned on

    Situation 1) player without safety charm will not lose exp when dying.

    Situation 2) will player with safety charm lose their safety charm when dying?

    Yes, this is why the GMs recommended players to put away their safety charms.

    Well gg if GM forgot to turn on the command, exp loss for high level char could mean hours of grinding, mistakes like this will be frustrating.
    It will be tedious to refund exp to each players too.

    GM has to be more careful on this.
    Player should test dying with their mule first.

    Empathy goes both way.
    If OP doesn't fuck the GM this way, perhaps they will get some genuine apology.
    It's a mistake and misunderstanding.

    Cheers and Merry Moomas~

    I believe the GMs offered to refund EXP to any character affected by opening an @gm ticket. It was their mistake and it seems they're making efforts to rectify it.

    Confused - if rewards and time mattered so much to you, why didn't you just ask them both q's before you committed a whole 2 hours?

    I mean you could just query their exp pre event and compensate the difference in exp back
