Events are fun, I think we can all agree. However I find events too short and not exactly well thought out.

For instance there is no need to have so many Jester and Good Jester spawns when everyone is fighting Experts and Apprentices. Having them a bit more rounded out would keep events lasting longer.... But not long enough...
An event should NOT only be 1 day let alone any less. It brings in FOMO and not only is discouraging to people who work or have school during the events but also discourages new people from joining the game for the same reason.
I'd like to see events last 1 -2 weeks around the given holiday.

Furthermore is there some sort of limitation for events at towns? why cant we have multiple events per town? would be nice to have a skilling and a mob event at the same town

I'm sure most will disagree with this and thats all fine and dandy. I'm glad u can be on 24/7

It's not a "holiday", it's a celebration of 'a' birthday. Probably nearly everyone expected 1 day of regular events/creatures, let alone new creatures. We're lucky we're getting a prolonging of our expectations. Wishing for a couple weeks of events because of a celebration of a single day is ridiculous.

Naturally, the lower creatures go faster considering they are lower level and have less hp, and because the newbies can work on their skills faster. So yeah, with all due respect, I disagree with your sentiments.

From what I can gather there is always something for people to do during events, sometimes it varies from skill to combat but usually, there is something to suit most levels.

Holidays lasting a week - 2 weeks I would say no, firstly that's a hell of a lot of bonus exp to just be handing out. Holidays usually last 3-4 days which is much better suited as usually after a day or so people have gotten tired of chasing the creature for rewards and instead set up camp working a skill or fighting.

This also gives players a chance to engage whether they have work, school, studies, kids etc it gives them a time to relax and take part.

This is not an event to base any statistics on as it was just something thrown together quickly so we had something to celebrate the birthday with instead of just creatures and skill events that we usually get.

so overall I think events have been nice and balanced at it is and I should not feel a need to change what works currently.

I agree that 1-2 weeks is way too long but I would like to see them last a little longer, or extra on the weekends. (altho I usually work Saturday mornings too) I work full time, from 6.30am to 4.30pm (travelling to and from work makes the day even longer) and because of the nature of my work I am not allowed my mobile on me while working to use 3G. (I have TeamViewer on my ipod, using the company's wifi and leave my game running on my desktop as games are blocked at work.) I am barely able to do my bots when doing a skill let alone fight critters. I ended up taking a sickie yesterday as I tried to play while on my ipod but the possibility of getting caught doing so made me fake illness so I could come home to play. I knew if I stayed at work there would be nothing left for me to fight when I got home as this happens everytime we have random invasions during the week. Was I wrong to do this? Hell yes! But I work hard when I am at work and if they had been run of the mill critters I wouldn't have done it but these were new and I wanted some chance of fighting them. Even tho more were spawned when I was in bed I still went back to work today and next year I will make sure I book holiday for Syrnia's Birthday.

I agree with terma in that 2 weeks may be too much for the bday but one day is very short and easy to miss for several reasons (work usually)

i really liked how there were combat events first then skill events after. not making people have to choose between the two, wouldn't mind more events broken up like that in the future.

I suggest increasing the numbers of lower lvl critters and skills.
Also making Syrnia Birthday last for 3 days would be better

"I'm glad u can be on 24/7 " .... that's a bit snarky. We all play when able to, some of us are unfortunate and unable to work, so yes we may spend more time here than others. What I like about Syrnia events is they are round the clock and anyone world wide can jump in on the action, even if for only an hour or two.

Again, the most recent events weren't for a "holiday event" .. it was a one day celebration for the game birthday, which actually consisted of two rounds of events: combat and then resource events, and I think it actually lasted two days but I could be wrong. A Birthday Celebration shouldn't last days or weeks .. most people only celebrate their bday on their bday, so not sure why it should different in an online game.

Events such as these lasting more than a day or two would have major repercussions on the Syrnian economy. The amount of food dropped by Jesters alone could cause prices to drop had the invasions been a week long. Not counting the high level seeds, locked items ect.

The short invasions are great. They're an XP boost without totally upsetting the markets with massive quantities of difficult to obtain items.

I think Marley is correct about the 1 day event. I feel the one day birthday makes sense. I love long events, but they dont all have to run a few days like Easter, Christmas and Halloween do.
We have other invasions infrequently just because, i like that they are started at different times, rather than always when im sleeping.
What Mak said was dead on, having the combat for a day and skills the next is great. So many Syrnians are all rounders that was nice.
Littler critters will always go faster than the big ones, especially if there is a skill/creature invasion. Maybe a few more low end creature spawns would help.
As Rex said, too long of an invasion can effect prices on things, and can disrupt things for too long for those farms and the few who are anti invasion.onger invasions on web, ogre, and exrollia could offset that, especially at non essential spots.
Its just a matter of finding the right balance that will please most, but there wont be a solution that will make every one happy.

Isn't Halloween a one day event? Isn't it celebrated on the 31st October only? Easter and Christmas are the only holidays that last longer than a day. A lot of ppl who work full time celebrate on the weekend closest to their birthday.

And since when has Syrnia mirrored real life? Can anyone tell me when they last spent the day killing ogres or gnomes or undead priests in real life?

The Mods can't take pity on those that do need to work but those that work have to on those that can't? Boo hoo. I also have serious health issues but I still get up 5/6 days a week and go to work. I gave up my job that I loved in retail and found a job where I can sit on my butt all day. In my opinion if you can sit and play on the internet all day then you can work, whether it be data entry or call centre or something of the like. A lot of disabled ppl work unless they are severely brain damaged or quadriplegic then no, they cant work. Another piss poor excuse for the Synian birthday not to last more than a day.

As for it affecting the economy, prices never really go down, it just means more ppl are able to get more gp for the extra items they get. And the food, seeds, locks are used and then it's back to normal until the next holiday.

Events and Invasions happen. Some people get ticked off because they missed them. Some people get ticked off because it interrupts their routine. Others get ticked off because the +xp bonus wrecks their math. Some get ticked off because "it wrecks the economy"... it's pixels people.

Short story, is in Syrnia - everyone gets ticked off.

I think that an event/invasion that is "one day based" (like birthdays) should span a couple of days due to time zones that everyone plays in. Perhaps have a couple rounds of invasions and skill events. I know that by saying this, I have already ticked off someone. Don't worry, I get over it.

Thank you staff for taking the time out of your busy schedules to provide us with some additional excitement. Pretty sure I just ticked off someone else. Oh well.

People need to also understand currently what we have seen has been done by 2 people and one isn't Borneo... They have worked tirelessly to give us something no matter how much it takes of their time. And as prome said, someone will always be ticked off so why not just enjoy them if you can and thank those working tirelessly to give us new things
