Forgot to add: i dont blame gameforge they are doing the best with what they have. They can't change the patch. They can only change events that are in game and that's not enough to make ppl stay.
Gameforge can actually do a lot more than they are doing now.
Look at RU, they have/did have in the past:
- 225% increased drop rate on Exodor <-> 50% on EU (Apparently you can farm 400 tokens for e.g a belt in a couple of hours)
- Halidom/Relic enchant event (almost all end game players have double Tier 5)
- Dedicated PVP zone (IoD)
and probably a lot more.
