    We went from smashing everything to bouncing around the screen 4-5 times in the dungeon... Unlucky for us it happened once with a mimic so like 5-6 deaths and on the dragon... So failure... everyone at the same time was typing "lag" "rubberbanding" in chat.

    on 3rd run at second boss we got full party wipped because of rubberbanding, and for the amazing thing if you fail no coins for anyone at all not even for 2x successfull run previously. Please get more servers rented for this kind of event playerbase was looking forward for this event and once again it is a disspaointment provided by the team.

    The lag is so insane that most people don't even want to get past tiers 1, and combined with the fact that disconnected people can't get back in, that's a disaster.
    The event seems really nice, but the uber-lag makes it a nightmare.

    Please, please do something, and extend the duration of the event afterwards, 'cause right now it's unplayable.

    Dont even know if Im going to bother.. it appears its yet another super grind fest.. I dont understand why they think any enjoys quite as many runs as they think we should do.

    Whatever..

    Im tired of their coding, of their planning and their overall quality .. its barely worth thinking about any of these things.. i will just log in, farm some AD, and log off..

    The game is being managed very poorly of late.

    Ran it this morning - lag was awful. We managed to make it through, but stopped at the 1st difficulty, just too laggy to be playable properly.

    Well this is bout worst start for an event for me . 1. super insane lag 2.Still having bad connection issues and alot of DCing . and get this if u dc in this even ur not kicked from the party u are in PE with no possiblity to rejoin group even if they complete current tier. 5 trys been to tier 2 twice all ended due to my disconnects and no its not on my end.

    Lagfestival, /netgraph shows normal 150-180 for me in EU, but now it shows around 300-1600 (more 500+).
    Its nearly unplayable and if someone had disconnect he cant join team anymore.
    do something against those heavy lags and extend event or give free loot to everyone tried the event.

    Tried this with my guild, took over an hour to do 2 runs because of insane lag freezing us and fouling up power activation. Finally had to give up as a critical member disconnected and was booted out. It's infuriating that this is still an issue despite garnering tons of complaints from Barovia hunts and being reported for this event while it was on preview.

    In addition to the super-rough lag: Any player who is disconnected is kicked out of the dungeon and can't rejoin, and any player who leaves after a round ends the event for everyone else even if they want to proceed: there's no way to replace a player partway through like you can in every other dungeon run.

    So while I got to experience Mad Dragon again for the first time in years and that was super-cool, I gotta say the event needs a little tuning.

    The lag have settled down a bit now after
    * People tried it once to see what it is - novelty wore off
    * People realized you need a meta 16k+ team to do well in there

    It could be very expensive for Cryptic to dimension everything for the max peaks.

    That's the strangest part. They knew about this bug.
    Many of us reported it after testing on preview:

    https://forum.arcgames.com/neverwinter/discussion/1245875/lair-of-the-mad-dragon-bugs#latest

    Seemed like an easy fix.
    I don't understand why they released it without addressing such a game-stopping error.

    I won't go so far as to say "worst event ever". Just unforgivable disregard to the preview testers. Why even put it on preview if you aren't going to listen to the feedback?

    Without the lag (didn't have that on preview), with correction of the "lockout" bug and with more reasonable trinket drops it does have potential to be fun.

    I just realize how ...........* I am.

    How on earth I could belive after last CTA event full of lags and issues that next even more complicated event could actually work properly?

    Menaged to push trough 4 attempts and gave up after server not respoding messages for most of us in party. That was good timing as in next 5 mins after we gave up 2 of us got disconnects.
    Best thing is 1 of the teams from my guild actually completed all 5- but for unknown reason they didnt get any reward.

    "didnt have that on preview" the preview population is way lower than live server, these problems have beeen happening for years, the fact that they didnt prepare for it shows you should never look to it with high expectations, Knowing the most wanted event in the game, with the comeback of and old dungeon and the embelishments added as challenge makes it good event in teory, in live is a total mess. they should have made it a private queue with tales of old option like the k-team option on the menu, that way player disconnected because of servers problems its unfair(we lost our main dps when reach last boss1x run, and on 3xrun second boss rubberbanding pulling us to red circles).

    So finally we got an event which the comm wanted so badly and its unplayable.
    And ( like allways) we dont get any response from the devs/PW whats going on and how they wanna fix it and compensate it? Looks like a system. I allways defended the game, the work from the devs and from PW and the support. But this now? Just lazy...i dont have any fun atm playing this game.
