I feel really bad for Sabi and Troyle, because from what I've seen, they do relay our observations and concerns quickly, but then they never hear back in time for it to be useful, and when they do, it's just useless piles of mushy half-information.
Clear, quick fixes, or failing that, advice to get around the glitches are what we need. (especially on suddenly patially-completed quests on characters from last year!)
A detailed response is eagerly awaited by essentially every community ingame. I wonder if we will see it in time for it to actually make a difference?
And yes the challenge mob only availability of Gobbals was an odious decision on so many levels. Limiting the mobs to 1-2 only further compounds the problem, and making so few spawns just puts the cherry on top of the whole mess for me. No chance of getting this on all my alts this year, as I had been hoping.
And thanks for making me feel guilty for taking so many mobs in the hope of even one complete questline, do you realize a lot of folks doing this are low level, new and/or f2p players, and it sends a very brutal signal that people don't give a shit for lower level folks to have a chance to complete what should be a fun holiday series of quests?
Honestly, wakfu is a "grind centric" game, that's been poorly coded.
**Can you really expect a level of quality that even a F2P game has, when playing Wakfu?
IE: How long did it take them to "fix" the numeric buff of the bum sac?.. let alone actual bugs that've been around since closed beta.
Think about it...
The Halloween event was pushed back to the 7th.. so to make sure people stick around and stay "entertained". The devs leave the event dungeon/achievement bugged and make sure that people can't adequately farm future quests. (gobs).
Even if this wasn't done on purpose.. that would only compound the level of distrust in Ankama to actually run a quality SUBSCRIPTION game.
Personally, I'd recommend to play other MMO's and only visit Wakfu occasionally (durring/after updates for a few days).
IE: GW2 ran Halloween events all throughout the month of October:
**Would be a good game to pick up, since it's Buy2Play. (no sub).
Other than that, perhaps try the upcoming Wildstar!
They've even got an evolution of the Haven bags:
Anywho, just keep in mind what type of company Ankama are and how they treat their "customers".
Might wanna lower your expectations of Ankama and Wakfu.. otherwise you'll only set yourself up for disappointment.
