    Missed Ancient Karka Event Chests Shipping now!

    ArenaNet is shipping the Lost Shore event item – the Ancient Karka Chest – to those that missed it, due to disconnects or “no-reward-occurences”, now. So if you participated in the event and did not get the reward chest, there is a good chance you will find it in an in-game mail during the next [...]

    There's a big difference between "I was actually there and something went wrong" and "I wasn't there because of real life / timezone / couldn't be bothered / badgers made me not log in"

    This is a fix for the former, anet are looking at the latter via various bits of feedback that have been given since the One Time Only Karka event. Let's see how it moves forward from here.

    I got one of these chests in my mail this morning. But... I was at the event, didn't disconnect, and got the chest at the end of the event. I heard that they were sending out chests to people that "qualified" for them, but I really didn't think I would qualify, due to having not disconnected and having already looted the chest. It is still sitting in my mail, I haven't opened it, and I don't think customer service mail has "return to sender" option. I sort of feel strange about this, I mean, I wouldn't want to have got it by mistake when they should have sent it to someone else. So I'm really not sure what to do about it.

    They really should do something about those badgers. And Saint Troy, just open it. They're giving you the chest because you _could_ have not got it I suspect.

    I didn't get one, but I did get disconnected twice, but was able to make it to one of the overflows.

    I really wonder what their script qualified an account that should get one, ^^ Saint Troy is a prime example that it didn't work right.

    The chest they send out is account bound. So is the 20 slot bag and the trinket. However you could find someone who was at the event and didn't get the chest (and didn't get the mail) and send them the exotics.

    (for the record, I did attend the event and was able to get the chest, so I'm not asking for the exotics in any way)

    yet, I've heard from people that got the mail who didn't event try.

    And this. People who did get the chest and rewards also got the mail. So, they goofed again. Either send it only to people who actually got disconnected at the event and if you cannot differentiate between those and those that didn't even try or even actually got the chest, send it to everybody.
