The event was a really nice idea, I agree with that and I would've been able to handle the lag and the framerates.
My biggest problem was. that there were no rewards: I barely got any influence, XP was pretty damn low too and I did not get a single badge.
The chat you guys prepared was really funny, though I did not wait 2 hours to read a funny chat.
As long as there are no more rewards than "you can do something with the community", which I do almost everyday, I won't be participating either.
Still, thank you for thinking of events and trying to keep this game alive! I really appreciate your efforts.
