I love the fact that they call out the fact that last year's event didn't go over well.
Um... Read it again
While it would seem that the festival was a resounding failure, the prevailing sentiment is rather different. Of those citizens and adventurers who partook of the revelry, the majority recount their egg-hunting experience with great fondness
Unless you think they're being sarcastic? It quite clearly states that the event was a success... and IMO I quite enjoyed it even if it was a bit on the easy side (I think I was R30-35ish at the time I don't recall). The only thing I was dissapointed in (as were some others), was the fact that mass insanity and calamity didn't ensue post event.
I was referring to the forum posts of people upset about it when it happened, and I assumed that was what the text was in reference to. I seem to remember a few posts about bell jokes, and what are we supposed to do with these helmets, and the such.
Personally, I know I enjoyed it, I still have all (but one) of the helms, and plan on getting all of the new items (wish I could get the egg helm I missed).
If memory serves me correctly, this was the first functioning quest for Yoshi (I don't count the bell things, since, lets face it, they were just fillers for events).
And while people complained before it started, until it ended, those who did it enjoyed it.
But, I admit my first statement was apparently too short of a statement to really cover that thought.
