    Halloween community event not very good. Talentless people like me are not inclined to participate

    Maybe a little bias if gm friends with the player or in the guild.

    Ocean's level of salt if lose

    Fix this by making participation reward.

    Participation at least grants you special face coupon and hair

    Increase donor nx by a tad bit for the winners eg 50k 1st 40k2nd 30k 3rd etc, to entice them to put in more work. Give them a nice chair:happy:.

    Participation awards are bad and hinder self improvement.

    1. They lower the overall quality of the work being done
    - If everyone gets a reward, why try
    - I actually laughed (breathed heavily) when reading some of the comics because they were genuinely funny

    2. They give a false sense of success for people who lack talent in that field
    - I know I am bad at watercolor and pencil drawing, but I am pretty decent at acrylics and digital media
    - Not everyone is good at certain things. Some people are better than others at Fitness, Bomberman, Redlight, or have insane luck at ola ola

    3. I think it was Abraham Lincoln that once said, "Git gud m8"

    I didn't understand why there was a quest attached to the Letters and Map for a paltry sum of mesos and experience that could only be done if you were the leader of the party who collected the letters upon completion.

    I was disappointed that the making of Halloween pots didn't grant experience. I was also disappointed that the materials used to create the items were changed from last time (though I totally understand why it was changed; it was still disappointing).

    There were too many Red Candies (300 MP recovery). I'm not suggesting we increase the rates of the other rewards, but I would like to see more diversity.

    I liked the art work and music in the FM, and the collection of Halloween Candies was fairly straightforward. I was a little frustrated that I had to travel to NLC each time I wanted to hand stuff in - but that's just the nature of the beast, I guess. Though it does deviate from a lot of other events where you talk to an NPC that takes you to a general location; I do think it's a waste NOT to use the Haunted Mansion for just such an event. Meh...I'll get over it. =o)

    Could you save this and post it on soon-to-be posted official feedback thread please MapleF18

    OP is talking about community event in this thread, not the entire Halloween event.

    We literally put in measures to help people if they felt they had a creative or technical disadvantage to their peers. Maybe you should try a little harder next time or even start earlier. Good to practice these habits and work with what you're given.

    yeah tru. sad to put in all the work for 10 people to enjoy sad

    I feel like community events should entice participation and not limit prizes to those who are artsy. Makes it feel like a competition rather than for fun ...Should also give participants something for putting erffort. server population so high but only 15 participation seems too low.

    Nothing? Nothing will happen to them? They carry on with their maple lives.

    Why are you speaking for those people? I for one had a lot of fun participating in the community event and I thought it was well done. Sure it was a lot of work organizing my friends to pose and stuff, but in the end it was a lot of fun. I think OhDoggoOhDoggo did a great job and I look forward to more of these.

    Have you participated in a GM event like russian roulette? What happens to the people who don't win? They get nothing. Personally I don't like that event because it's RNG based, but not because you don't get a participation scroll of secrets.

    I think you need to grow up a bit and realize that you don't get everything for free. You don't get a trophy or any considerations for promotions for simply showing up to work. The people who are artsy didn't get there randomly. They put in a lot of time and effort to hone their craft.

    It's clear my point as well as others aren't getting through to you/you aren't really providing great feedback. Consolation prizes could be discussed but other than that, thread closed due to OP partially being a troll.
