I really thought this weekend's 'Replica Of An Empty Mysterious Crystal Display' event was handled poorly by EMs. First off, this item is very unique, and a lot of people wanted one. However, for whatever reason, most shards, if not all, seemed to only allow the item spawner to remain for mere minutes. In fact, on some shards, there was intense fighting due to generated spawn which disallowed some local fighters from even getting a replica. I understand there has to be balance between griefers, xtraders, RPers, and the casual users in the middle, but EA, please, in the future, have your EMs clearly state what is going on. If you're going to make an invasion force for example, and screw over anyone who fights that force while xtraders get all the items through the narrow window the event item is up, that's just horrible event design in my opinion. Either put the reward on the creature, like an arty pop into every one's pack (which xtraders can't damage for loot), or do the reward when EVERYTHING is dead.
