    Im all for the devs enjoying their xmas holiday, id like to enjoy mine as well seeing as how spent my xmas money on this Secondly a week ago I lost a Shard of Orcus Wand after grinding for 3months and lost it cause the server crashed as i was claiming it, I was told by PWE there was nothing they could do, because they "CAN NOT MANUALLY ADD ITEMS TO AN ACCOUNT"! Well this proves that was a Lie,so if im waiting another week to recieve my parcels i hope it includes that Orcus Shard. Miasmat Thanks for all your incredible work and patients, im just a little ticked that PWE lied to me.

    The problem is not that they technically cannot do it. The problem is that they cannot trust player statement 'I lost X' without logs to back it up. If they trusted player statements without logs, it would be open to mass abuse.

    If you lose gear to crash as you are looting it, there most likely will be no log entry for it, so you are out of luck.

    Sucks to lose highend items that way though :(

    I am on ps4 in North America. I have bought over 50 of those parcels before the fix. I have yet to see any compensation. Should I still be expecting anything soon? Is there a time frame?

    Truthfully, I am not terribly upset about the bug, but more or less upset that the majority of users on other systems have received the compensation already. Ps4 is always getting shafted

    Alas, it is the holiday season. I am thrilled at the response tIme towards the bug. Also, for what you had to do with very little manpower is very impressive. For that gratitude is in order. So thanks for your hard work. Happy Holidays.

    Do you have a real time frame for the ps4 users or any useful info for us?

    Unfortunately, no. I have to leave town on Saturday evening. Without an automated solution, there's no way I'd get through PS4 by then. The people who can help me with it are all out of the country on vacations (who knew December was a good time to go to Europe?) and won't be available to help until we're back in the office Jan 2. I'll try a few more things Saturday morning, but I really doubt I'll be able to kick something off before I have to leave. I'm really sorry about that, but we'll work out the rest of the details before the winter festival ends.

    Will the ps4 players even be able to get our parcels? I noticed the event says less than a week on one area and at the zone it says around 12 days?
  • kan1ne78kan1ne78 Member Posts: 4 Arc User
    So what about the specific Simril vendors of the event - with us PS4 users apparently not getting compensation until after the event is over, how are we to spend the currency gained from the compensated gifts? Will there be an extension of the vendors in which we use the event currency for?

    Thank you for all your hard work and I hope you have a safe and happy holiday
    I was wondering, are the S's complete? My Shining Moon should be getting 28 or 29.
    My Leliana got her packages but my Laidan Mahariel didn't.

    I likely have made some mistakes along the way today, so once Dragon is done, I'll go back and double-check that I actually hit everyone that I meant to.

    @barkoznia79

    The winter event ends proper on jan 5. The reason why some areas say it ends on Dec 29 is because that is when the second half (zenith) of the event starts.

    blue gear is specifically what they fixed. prior to the fix, you would not have received the blue items. everything else is working as it should. (in theory)

    if you read the parcel it tells you that the "highly-sought-after rewards" come after opening 20, so you only just reached that threshold.

    I hope you all enjoyed the alliterative updates.
    Dragon is done. All letters. I'll go back through to make sure I didn't miss anyone. I know there's a group in the Gs that I missed.

    I loved your updates. So so so impressed and sorry for you that you had to do this manually - and alone! You sir, deserve an extra jolly present from Santa (or more than a dreidel for Hanukkah, or insert whatever combo works for your situation). :smile:

    Merry Christmas and a happy new year :)
    For some reason, about a third of my characters got Gifts of Simril added along with the Starlight Parcels?

    I guess that means more gifts to share, and not sell for gold or whatnot, that so many, many, maaaaannny people seem to do.

    Remember people, it's not a "gift" if you charge for it...

    Anyways, it was good to see all this handled in a proper way, many thanks to the poor people having to do all this work manually, and over the Holidays, I hope Santa brings lots of gifts for you :)

    @miasmat - Thank You. All resonable peeps here do know how much effort you put in sloving that issue (farankly - if its all about blue items you shoudnt even bother). You really rock man. Now go home and have wonderfull Christmas. And if by any luck I will ever meet you personal - I would be honored to shake your hand and buy you a beer.
