    I personally don't like the revamped EM program and today's Chessy Luna pie throwing mess is yet another reason. Why can an EM create an item that is like a snowball but anyone can be hit by it and has no time to wait between throws? Even without any negative affect on my character, I don't particularly like being hit with a PIE. If I had one on me then yes I should be a target. So going to luna I can be pied constantly with no way to avoid it seems like a nice tool to annoy the heck out of someone.

    Seems he can only make a limited number each day. He told another player who wanted to join in the fun to come back tomorrow and he could make more. Sort of defeats the purpose of having an event if only the first 20 or so people get to play.

    Sorry for the rant but I just don't like what I saw tonight.

    Everyone likes PIE. You must be a clown irl and be constantly hit with cream pies this is the only thing that can explain your anger.

    Pie throwing will get old fast enough just like throwing snow did. It does sound like fun though.

    When you can throw a pie back maybe it will be fun but limiting it to only a few and then having no way to avoid it just makes it stupid and annoying.

    "Grow Up".

    That was actually my comment to the EM. To you I just say.. well I won't say that since it will get me banned... instead I'll say ... go pie yourself

    Hehe, i'm jealous of your EM now :D

    The only reason I would complain about the "throwing pies" is because the EM didn't bring them to my shard!

    Aw... I wanna pie too...
     
  22. Incredible.

    Is that all it takes to ruin your night? Some dumb text at the bottom of the screen saying you were pied?

    It's a silly event that means nothing and doesn't affect your character in the least.

    I figured it would not be long before a complaint would hit UHALL over the Cream pie EM Dudley made. It is a bit annoying... to bad it didnt have a timer on it hehe. I got creamed about 50 times in a row. All I did was

    *Ducks*
    *Licks face*
    Yumm Cream
    *Opens mouth*
    More, more, more

    It is just an event. Now that it is on UHALL i'm sure three things might happen.

    1. They wont do the event and 20 cream pies will be for sale for 20,000,00
    2. People will now come to the event to get one and re-sell it
    3. They will just run the event because I cant wait to "CREAM" a Pvper.

    Its a funny event. I have been WAITING to throw a pie at someone. I hope they make Cherry pie this time....much more messy.

    In fairness to the original poster, this would greatly annoy me.

    In fairness to everyone else, no way in Hell would I waste a post complaining about it.

    Sorry, Parser. When someone as grim and humorless as I disagrees with you this much? 'Fraid you've probably crossed a line.

    It's ok, though, I've crossed it many-a-time and will continue to cross it on occasion.
