They were hiding years ago. Then they stopped hiding. Why would they be hiding again?

Also, so uh, did we save Christmas or what? I don't even know.

Well no one knows who they were hiding from, right? I don't think it was THAT many years ago..

It was like three years ago, wasn't it? They were both involved in events since then.

While I do appreciate everything that Gaia's staff does for its users, I will say that I was surprised by how little time was needed to fully complete this year's Christmas event. I usually have to set aside several days in order to get through one of our bigger events, but I spent a mere three hours this time around. I hate to say it, but I feel like less thought was put into this event than what usually is. Maybe their rationale was that the world may possibly be ending soon, so why spend all of the remaining time planning an online event? xD Hopefully our next big event will be slightly more substantial.

I don't mind that it didn't take long to complete. I like that. I just don't like that it wasn't even remotely interesting and was, in fact, more confusing than anything else. Usually we have some idea of what we're actually doing in the grand scheme, even if it's just collecting eggs for a crazy cyborg rabbit. This time it felt like it was supposed to have a plot but that plot was never fully explained.

yeah, the fact that this whole demigod story arc started 3 years ago really puts gaia's pacing into perspective

I didn't mind the event- I got the pretty Poinsettia dress and even with my usual hectic schedule during this time of the year, I was actually able to complete the event. I dunno... maybe for those who have a lot of spare time right now it was boring, but for me it was a relief. I could log in after work, collect my Wing Sticker, do the caroling cycle twice while studying/cooking/household tasks, and feel like I actually made some progress every day. lol
The lack of a New Year celebration? Yeah... I admit, after work and throughout the night on NYE I was popping in to see if something was going to happen and also on NYD I thought that there would be a little something... I like it when Gaia does those little touches, like on not the last leap year but the one before it (too tired from work to remember what year it was or count lol) we got a little login gift of a frog item. It was cute and a nice little touch. But the lack of such for NYE didn't disappoint me enough to feel gypped. I'm just hoping that they have some nice items for Chinese New Year as I was born in the year of the snake.

I've come to expect the events to be lame any more so there's no surprise to me when it happens.

I'd die a little if we got a nice CNY gold shop updates with Chinese Lanterns and attire and stuff smile

I haven't been here in so long, so I didn't think it was so bad, since I only had vague memories of events from years and years ago. When you get used to other events on other avatar sites that are just as, if not more mediocre, then anything on here is awesome. I'm also glad it didn't take so much work to complete.

Given that I usually run a freebie thread for events, an easier event means more time actually managing my thread.
Buuut that's just me.
I've never had an event on Gaia that took more than a day to complete.
Even if it takes me 6 to 8 hours, I can blow through pretty much all of Gaia's events [( save Piehard)] in one setting.

Kind of weird that Gaia didn't do anything for New Year's, but I don't really care. We'll probably be getting stuff for Chinese New Year anyway, THAT'S what I like. cat_cool Year of the Snake, so I'm expecting some cool stuff.
