    10 years of playing and paying and I get 'locked out' for being 5 minutes late !

    You can shove your pumpkins where the sun dosen't shine, you'll not see me at any more event.

    particularly annoying as the reason I was late was that the shard was down!

    Cant exactly remember what did happen,but some player made a comment about new created chars and then doors got locked.Mesanna did say something about bad experiences on some other shards, she doesnt know the europa people. Was a bad choice made by the em's. Not many people at all there,even less of the regular folks.
    They should make another event because of the server restart 20 minutes before start.

    Mesanna distributed black pumpkins and painted to this colour old pumpkins with she's name. She also had time to answer a few questions.

    Mesanna was early, I only knew cos a friend let me know.

    Manticore was the one that said to lock the doors, and someone, not sure who, said something about alts, then Mesanna went to the doors and locked them.

    I knew Alyx was coming, and I let them know, myself and Minerva, also said a few times that he was waiting outside but couldn't get in .. but there was no answer from Mesanna or the EMs :(

    My internet died so missed it, Not an impressive report here though. Glad I missed it, Rather not see anything than be stuck outside a door counting the grain.

    *nods to Mapper* My internet was out too - I found out why, some massive exchange failure in Edinburgh :( But I would have been locked out too if I'd made it into game, had an event at 7.30 in Trinsic and was going to come on here afterwards so I know I'd have been late. At least I only have to regret missing one thing now *looks on the bright side* :)

    Just one teeny weeny little snag with that theory - You cannot cast spells inside the Councillors Hall.

    My service is so bad I never bothered to check for a 'reason'. Nice to see there was one! Thank you for the information.

    Europa shard went down around 80 minutes before the event and since uoherald posted that the downtime will take about an hour, I thought the event cant possibly start in time.

    As for locking the doors, we understand that neither the Ems nor Mesanna herself have the ability to distinguish the newly created characters from veteran players. That is the only reasonable explanation I got. I dont want to think a player's greed might have an effect on the decisions of the EMs or Mesanna.

    I remember waiting for Mesanna to arrive in an event where she couldnt make it because of a technical difficulty. Its ironic to see players attending these events regularly to face some technical difficulty when Mesanna shows up.

    I couldnt care less about Mesanna lanterns to be honest, spent my last two days trying to get lanterns for my own characters.

    Oh, and by the way, since EMs already thanked Mesanna on EM website for her "restoring a piece of Europa's unique history":

    Any news from the Moonglow Beer Garden?

    From at least 8.05, until just before Mesanna left.
