Talk:Farewell to Gaile

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

After reading the article, I have my doubts about this event. --MageMontu 18:51, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

By the way, {{community hosted event}} is for events that are hosted by players only - if this is real, it's hosted by ArenaNet. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 18:53, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Its on the official website (http://www.guildwars.com/events/ingame/farewellgaile/default.php) so rest assured that its real. --SLeeVe 19:08, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I call hoax on her leaving, but the event being real. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 19:11, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
She's just moving within the company, thus leaving the community team. That's all. - THARKUN User Tharkun sig.png 19:40, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I still find it strange that they're giving out a big event cause Gaile is changing role within ArenaNet. I may start believing its an advanced April Fools' Joke. --MageMontu 21:31, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
+1 to MageMontu--Ryudo 21:32, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Its the end of an era; why not? At least, that's easily how you could see it. Plus, who doesn't want easy access to alcohol, sweets, and party animal titles? Its a fun weekend, so who cares what its based on? - THARKUN User Tharkun sig.png 21:55, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
To bad things don't roll that way Dominator Matrix 21:58, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
How do you mean? People don't want cheap alcohol? People don't like to celebrate? Your message is so vague as to not make sense. on the other hand, i don't really care - THARKUN User Tharkun sig.png 22:35, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
People on GW aren't really the positive party people....Dominator Matrix 22:37, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

April Fools'. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 21:35, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
Well I can easily write on my userpage that I'm gonna start working for Anet, so she may have updated it to go with the joke. --MageMontu 21:36, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) There is a 86.23% chance that this is a hoax, created by arenanet for the holiday known as April Fools Day. --Myria83 21:37, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes we shall see and hopefully end this madness Dominator Matrix 21:44, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Wonder who is going to replace her. — Eloc 03:07, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Maybe she wont be replaced and we just wont have a CRM anymore...what with GW2 on the horizon--Ryudo 15:21, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Maybe, but all large companies generally have a CRM, but I may be wrong. I guess we'll have to wait and see. — Eloc 15:47, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
If Anet can manage to find someone just HALF as dedicated and allaround usefull i'd be surprised! 89.80.162.91 11:30, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Happy april fools[edit]

And just FYI, yesterday was already April Fools across the International Date Line. --Hawk SkeerAssassin Symbol(Talk) 15:19, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, for a second they had me fooled...then it clicked lols LunarEffect 18:51, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Until you notice I addressed that in the first line of this comment heading. --Hawk SkeerAssassin Symbol(Talk) 21:23, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Mini[edit]

Maybe this is the perfect time for a Mini Gaile Gray =D 85.145.25.54 20:50, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Excuse me while i vomit -- Salome User salome sig.png 21:31, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Sure if you want a mini of someone paid to do her job go right ahead... ohhhh... you actually thought she did stuff above and beyond.... 118.92.12.97 06:32, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Secondly, you could have at least asked for a mini frog or something... but no... 118.92.12.97 06:45, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
I want me a mini gaile, and i want it now Kypp Duron 14:24, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Totally agree with that. I'm sure its possible to make a mini of gailes main character (it does look a lot like her, from what I hear). --User Wandering Traveler Oie User Wandering Traveler Sig2.png Wandering Traveler 14:26, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
you obviously have not googled her name

What the hell?[edit]

She can't leave before GW2! This is April fools, right? Oh man... if not, bb Gaile. Ninjas In The Sky 06:39, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

She is NOT leaving... She is merely switching jobs inside ArenaNet (From CRM to Support Liason). (Qanar | talk) 15:18, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
April 5 Sunday, April 6 Monday, April 7 Starting at Noon Pacific (-7 GMT) on Saturday and concluding at Noon Pacific on Monday Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 18:21, 2 April 2008 (UTC) isnt right right?

Date Change[edit]

Sunday is the 6th, but does that mean the appearances are on Saturday? My guess is that 'Sunday, April 5' should be changed to 'Sunday, April 6th', but maybe the "visitation" is on a Saturday for once. Stan Thompson talk 20:41, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

You're probaly right... I might have been a little fast with adding these dates :-). I'm unsure about the hours too (with summertime and all that), but I just added in the table so it'd be there and all we had to do this weekend was update the right hours. 217.136.104.191 21:51, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry... forgot to login :( (Qanar | talk) 21:52, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) The times should still be PST (or whatever ANet use to indicate the time on their website) and UTC/GMT times, not BST - the times are according to the time zone and not whether summer time is in effect. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 21:53, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
If someone has time to adjust middle and right columns based on the left column, that would be great. I have corrected the PDT column, but I am at work and out of slack time to finish the conversion.Stan Thompson talk 19:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Where are the times from? Do we know that 12:01 PM PDT is the start or are we assuming things? I can't seem to find a stated time anywhere. - anja talk 19:33, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
From the article/guildwars.com - "This very special event begins at Noon Pacific (-7 GMT) on Friday, April 4, 2008 and will run all weekend, ending at Noon Pacific (-7 GMT) on Monday, April 7, 2008." [...] "Every three hours, this duo will host a light-hearted party, complete with dancing, prizes, and maybe even a conga line!" --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 19:35, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Then why does the table start at 12:01 PM PDT Saturday, if it starts at noon on Friday. Gaile herself pointedly told me once that noon and 12:01 is not the same, and Friday and Saturday certainly isn't :P - anja talk 19:39, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
The British have a REALLY long Monday, and the eastern Sunday is even longer @_@ (talking about the table at the bottom xD) — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 20:18, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
The table is correct. For confirmation, read the table just above "Event Treats" at this link http://www.guildwars.com/events/ingame/farewellgaile/default.php Stan Thompson talk 22:15, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Yea, the new game update also confirmed that. - anja talk 22:19, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I guess technically the ':01' should be ':00' since it actually says noon. The original table poster had :01's so I left it as is. Feel free to change that if it gets especially in someone's crawl.Stan Thompson talk 22:22, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
So why not correct the time table? I did but it got deleted again.. :S It already started, so why not inform people? Sjeng 12:04, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, as the official site said Noon and I had no comments confirming that the Frog was appearing already, I reverted. If he is indeed appearing, it should definitely be noted, so feel free to revert me. - anja talk 12:14, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Sigh. No show at 15:00 CET... GG Anet for disappointing again. Sjeng 13:12, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Someone sure messed up the Timetable now lol. Sunday? already happened? lol. There was one today (saturday) 3 hours ago (which was 12:00 am CET (daylight savings). Now there is none. I suspect none in 3 hours from now. Then the actual first at 21:00 pm CET. Sjeng 13:19, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

I think that someone needs to...[edit]

...alter the event a little bit, so that Andrew won't be left out. — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 13:24, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

The Rabbit is saying that the party is a farewell to Gaile AND The Frog. So, The Frog = Andrew Patrick? Secret identity revealed at last! -SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 19:31, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Alright, someone brief me[edit]

Who the fuck is "The Frog". I know Gaile, but... help me out here.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 22:25, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

So in other words it's nobody? Why is it such a big deal?- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 22:29, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
No need for swearing. The frog is now seen as some sort of mascot / important figure in the GW universe, by reference to the tadpole network and other such funnies. We like the frog. We worship the frog. You should worship the frog too. INFIDEL! :) -- Alaris_sig Alaris 22:34, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry for the cursing but I've heard about it constantly and I just kind of snapped.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 22:36, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
No problem. As long as you worship the frog. WORSHIP IT! =D -- Alaris_sig Alaris 22:51, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Never even seen the damn thing. It must be too small. And since I've never seen that page to the Frog EVER EVER, I shall not worship it.- VanguardUser-VanguardAvatar.PNG 22:55, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I seen the Frog Talked Once or Twice in Game though l8ly he hasnt been speaking. --Mithos Agar 00:10, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Speaking of which, I just realized that having The Rabbit attending this event might be a bad thing :/ — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 00:17, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
We have 2 frogs that live on our guild island. :D --Go to Wynthyst's Talk page Wynthyst 22:08, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

I Wish[edit]

I Wish they have the Event in pre-searing also =( Though I heard for a Fact Gaile Visited Pre-Searing once and Seeing the Frog's best friend is the Rabbit I see not why have the event occur in Pre-Searing HELL At times I see district one of Ascalon Full and Lions Arch D1 never gets full that much anymore. --Mithos Agar 00:09, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

collectors[edit]

Now I am pissed that I sold all my Saurian bones after the lucky and easter weekends, lol. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 22:42, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Haha yeah that always happens when a new event or when a new collector is added to an event. Has happened to me quite a number of times. --Kakarot Talk 22:48, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Same here, just sold all the destroyer cores a few days ago lol. Luckily I'm such a packrat and I had enough junk left for the collectors. - Yumiya 23:16, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeh was saving for gloves and a mo-zing mask so had some cores and carvings --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 23:20, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Maybe if they would give us storage for collectable and tradable items we would be better off because if you have all the games and you play much you need at least a couple character mules just to hold all the collectable junk. 208.53.131.244 09:07, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Seven mules here. I'm glad I only play one character. --Nerthing 14:30, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

I could never play one character, I don't know how you do it. :P 68.204.198.205 04:29, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Districts[edit]

Unlike the Mad King and the Avtatars during wintersday (wich all are computerised so it seems) i dont see this happening to the Frog wich was always human controlled so certainley we'll have to visit a certain District and if so wich one?

My personal guesse is the international one since thats where one would usually meet Gaile but if annyone has some ins and outs on this it is apriciated much.

We wouldn't all fit. -- Dashface User Dashface.png 08:57, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm quite sure the rabbit will be computerised :) (Qanar | talk) 09:45, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
The rabbit is computerised as well its ovious.....1. It has a million places to be. 2. It has to made so many apearaces. 3. Its first (and maybe only) show. 3. You can see it spamming :P Dominator Matrix 09:47, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

OMG, this means only one thing! Santa Claus is also computerised then! --Shaia 08:16, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

current time[edit]

I added the current time, I think this should have been on every event page.. anyway, copy paste it for each upcoming event :P Pulpulpullie 14:50, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

That's a real good idea, although I'd prefer it in EST. UTC/GMT makes me cry. --Nerthing 14:54, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
EC. :While I think it's a good idea, can i jsut point out that some areas of europe (which is GMT+0 prety much)are on british summer time (meaning clocks are forward an hour currently so the time is off by an hour for me (situated in the UK)) just thought i should point it out (sorry if you already knew it or if i sound like an ass =p) PheNaxKian (T/c) 14:55, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
It's not wrong for the UK, we are at GMT+1 at the moment, not GMT. GMT doesn't change according to us, it's stationary. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 14:58, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
that's what i meant (sort of...in a not explained properly kinda way =s)PheNaxKian (T/c)
UTC/GMT was the only one available as a template. That's why i picked that one Pulpulpullie 15:06, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
i think the -7Gmt is wrong because its 2:01 and i live in -8 gmt
The times are created in relation to the server, which is set as GMT/UTC. The page's time is set as -7, so it is correct. You are probably on daylight saving time, meaning you may be at GMT-7.--User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 21:05, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

nm i didnt know there were 2 different acronyms for -8 GMT is = -7UTC i hate time....75.165.99.144 21:13, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

I did notice that the time isn't updated every time you refresh the page (Even when I remove my browser cash).. Pulpulpullie 22:23, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Add ?action=purge to the end of your url and it'll refresh. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 22:25, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Even then it doesn't update perfectly. Calor Talk 22:28, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Does it fine for me. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 22:30, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Right now the current time shown is 16:13, but it's actually 17:09 (talking about GMT, here) according to an internet time server. Also, it seems to be actually stuck at 16:13.

One Letter Sums This Up Great.[edit]

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Thanks for the stuff now how about some new PVP maps in or a maybe a new PVE elite mission. --Devinepaul 18:42, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

"Hip Hop"[edit]

I roll up to the Xunlai, my account at maximum! You could call me King Jalis by the way I drop platinum! XD -AyaStowar

Yeah, I hate to admit that I laughed at that one. Thefount 19:26, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
I laughed when I saw the beginning of Hip Hop was "Rapper's Delight" Yukiko User Yukiko Sig.png 06:16, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Lame, Lame, Lame. All you could think of was a RAP? IrishRedneck 22:49, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
Well when the first few lines are pretty much reworded lyrics from a song, yes, I think of that song. Amazingly. I assume that the whole Hip Hop section is a mashup of different rap songs, I just happen to be familiar with Rapper's Delight. Yukiko User Yukiko Sig.png 10:02, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

The frog hasn't appeared at some districts[edit]

The frog hasn't come at spanish-3. Any other problems like this at other districts? Is it a bug or what?

If it is anything like previous events, the district has to be created before the event begins. Maybe eu.sp.d3 was created after the starting time?--Fighterdoken 19:32, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
No, we were there like 30 minutes before the starting time. --84.78.246.14 19:34, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Everyone was there from 30 minutes before the event to 1 hour after, including myself. And nothing happened. Not fun at all, you know. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 19:41, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

America 52 nothing happened either... 2:01 - 3:01 Central time. Don't think I'm off on timezones...

Again. Spanish 4. No event. Not funny ¬¬U. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 22:31, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Go to non-Spanish districts then? --Nerthing 22:33, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
I was in English 18 -- nothing. --Mme. Donelle 00:14, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Actions[edit]

So exactly WHEN do you do the actions. I know most of them are pointed out in ALL CAPS, but aren't they're a few that are hinted at but not obvious? How many fireworks from doing the emotes are possible from 1 visit? Master Fast 21:25, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Well i know 1 that is not in caps is listen to the story u type /afk or /sit, then when she tells something she wants you to agree without caps always agree. i got about 12 fireworks in 1 visit. Mr-HaXx
one visit=17 sets and i missed one ore two :P ... ok, i used the g-keys (g15) for the most emotes Mystic Gohan talk User talk:Mystic Gohan 20:24, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Farming Locations[edit]

Anyone found some great spots for great returns on collectables? I have found Kryta mission and Raptor farming popular but you need 2 of these items for one party item at the collectors.

Underworld: Smite Crawler Run -> 20 items (party items + collectables) per run 78.51.23.157 06:20, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
no that sucks, but can u farm old ascalon*? --Blood Anthem User Blood Anthem Sig.jpg 13:31, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

added something about "Hip-Hop" thingy[edit]

I added something about the "Hip-Hop" routine. It states, you shouldn't jump, but do /dance, /drum, or /violin to recieve the fireworks. 213.17.48.159 07:36, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Party Time[edit]

moved from User Talk:Gaile Gray

It's strange that we're having such a blast at a party that really involves your departure from your position, Gaile. It's somehow very bittersweet, but I guess that makes it extra special. I've waited until most of the storm had calmed to post, perhaps because I've been quietly hoping for a (belated) "April Fools!" call from ANet's side. Now that there's little hope of that... selamat jalan, I hope that you will find your way in your new position. :)
EDIT: The collectors have just disappeared from Shing Jea and LA, probably Kamadan as well. It's not even noon here in Europe, so nowhere near Noon Pacific... did someone pull the plug and cut your party short? :( -- User Elveh sig.png Elv 08:07, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Confirmed. All the collectors have vanished but the website says it should have went on for 12 more hours. :( -- Salome User salome sig.png 08:44, 7 April 2008 (UTC)



EDIT MORE: Apparently something went wrong with the programming. Instead of the event ending at noon pacific time Monday, it has indeed ended at midnight pacific time Sunday. A whole 12 hour difference!!! Hopefully someone will make amends due to this programming 'glitch'.(ign Aragon Zar)

It's getting pretty late, they may not be able to fix it tonight ... maybe they could extend the event instead ... -- Gordon Ecker 08:57, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
It's probably cause every other event ended at midnight or something and the code wasn't changed for this. At least Anet seems to usually compensate users for stuff like this (something like 20 free of each item and 24hrs of Party Time to give all users a chance to use their items) 67.184.252.217 10:16, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Why did the event end 12 hours early??[edit]

I just sent a complaint to Arenanet. It cleary says on the GuildWars website that the event will conclude at NOON Pacific time on Monday. It says, and I quote: "Starting at Noon Pacific (-7 GMT) on Saturday and concluding at Noon Pacific on Monday, The Frog will make his appearance every three hours in the three festival cities. Bring your fireworks and prepare to party!"

The last frog appearance was at MIDNIGHT Sunday night Pacific time, then an hour later at 1:00AM PST all the collectors magically disappeared and monsters stopped dropping party items! There was still 11 hours to go!! This is totally unacceptable, I've been farming all weekened for party items, and I fully intended to blow them all today at the Frog visits to get my max title. Now that wont be happening. Thanks Arenanet, you just get better and better. Maybe this is some kind of belated April Fools joke, but I'm really not laughing. Sorry Gaile, they appear to have nerfed your party. --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 09:30, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

They started 12 hours early as well, so I soppose finishing early balances things. Annoying, but oh well. Ahri 09:38, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Actually the collectors show up early and leave late. Comparing the farewell party to other events, they Frong would show up for one day, every three hours (technically 2 days). So the "finale" part is typically over by now, but the event's collectors, decorations, etc are usually around for another day. Yukiko User Yukiko Sig.png 09:46, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I added it to table and notes. 213.17.48.159 09:50, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I think the point is, when they supposedly started the event early, they declared a glitch and stopped the Frog from visiting for 2 visits. You'd have thought they would give people NOTICE of changing their event times. It's common courtesy if you are experiencing technical difficulties which have resulted in your having to make a huge change to a published date, you TELL people about it. They've had all weekend to communicate a change in the finish time. They should have said something about it to give people warning. On the whole, we were ripped off by 2 visits. So it's not entirely 'balanced' anyway. --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 09:56, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I think they just mistook 12 AM and 12 PM, just like it war for the early start <.< People are complaining that they still hae a lot of fireworks that they planed to use up today -_- — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 09:59, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
The thing is, their website says Noon. It doesn't give a time. Noon is lunchtime, not midnight. So the programmers obviously don't know to read a clock, quite frankly. People are complaining all over GW lol, it's getting really nasty. I think people spent too much money buying party items. Thankfully I farmed all my own, but I'm still disappointed that I can't get my title today. --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 10:04, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
My guess is they screwed up the timing for the event, it started early. They stopped it but never fixed up the end time to the new time. --TigerWolf User TigerWolf Sig.jpg 10:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
So to recap. They started it early for 2 visits. Stopped it again for 2 visits. Started it up for a couple of days. Then ended it 12 hours early. Well done...well done....--User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 10:11, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) I did not suffer, but one of my friends is unable to play at weekends so was intending to attend the event today. He has generally missed out on the finales of events and festivals because of not being able to play gw at weekends, so when he read that this event had part of the finale on a monday, he was really happy. Now it gets ended 12 hours early than we were promised. User FirstSunspear icon.png FirstSunspear /// Talk 10:12, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

(indent reset) So Anet make a mistake on the OFFICIAL WEB SITE (the one we should be able to rely on), and then just arbitrarily decide to cancel the event 12 hours early, disregarding the fact that many of us made our plans based off that information! That's extremely unfair!! The fans didn't make the mistake, so why revoke the event on us?? 10:15, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Just a programming error or bug to be fair. Hopefully they will announce something special as a fix. --TigerWolf User TigerWolf Sig.jpg 10:17, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I agree completely. The mistake was theirs, the GW community shouldn't suffer because of their error --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 10:18, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I don't understand why people are getting in such a huff. o_O Seriously, it was likely a programming error that ended the event early AFTER ArenaNet staff had already gone home. Really, it's 3am here on the Pacific Coast; do you really expect someone to be jumping out of bed to fix this at this very moment? I have faith (and patience) that they'll fix it tomorrow when people actually start work, so why not just give it a couple hours before sending off complaints or jumping down people's throats? Kokuou 10:22, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Well someone did jump out of bed to stop the event when it started early... — Poki#3 My Talk Page :o 10:27, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
To be fair, I don't think anyone has jumped down anyone's throat, people are politely expressing their views and making a very valid complaint. I think it's important for people to point out that they feel the early ending of the event is unfair and has caused incovenience. If people don't express their views now, then our programmer dears at Arenanet will have nothing to read when they sip their morning coffee.:) --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 10:29, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, the early events did happen on a Friday, so there were likely still people in the office late. Today, however, is Sunday, so it's highly possible that there is no one there right now, or that anyone there is unable to do anything. Also, it's fine if you send a notice to support letting them know the situation, but sending a formal complaint is a bit much, imo. I don't know the wording of your complaint, but as long as it was just a notice, I don't see any harm in doing so (there is, however, massive QQing over at Guru). Kokuou 10:39, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Idk, I think its more like, some stayed behind to monitor the start of the event cause they expected that to be the issue, this glitch is probably cause all other events end at midnight, and they probably just didn't think this would happen. 67.184.252.217 10:42, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I think anet actually have someone on standby 24/7, they have always been quick to fix problms and stuff in the past, so I would have thought they would at least have someone there during events. I guess not though :S User FirstSunspear icon.png FirstSunspear /// Talk 10:47, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, I hope they give us a payback, otherwie, Anet will recieve huge complaints by people. I'm still being polite, but It's only my POV. Also, this can't be our fault, cause what can we do to fix the server?213.17.48.159 11:09, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
In response to Kokuou, as far as I'm aware there is only one way to notify Arenanet of errors or bugs in GW, and that is via the "Ask a Question" submission process on the GuildWars support website. It has several options, one of those options is to notify them of a bug or in-game error. Nobody needs anyone's permission to use that process, if you see a bug or error, that's how you tell Arenanet about it. Nice of you to call my complaint 'formal', however. --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 12:36, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

(indent reset') I'm so happy, the event has been restored and is now back on. The Frog visited again a short time ago and I'm half way through my title. I'd like to think this was dealt with as pomptly as the last time because of people being prompt in bringing it to Arenanet's attention :) --User Angel 1.pngBunny - talk 13:24, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand[edit]

It says on the page that if you follow the instructions perfectly you will recive 22 of each firework. Does this really happen? --Burning Freebies 09:39, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

It does. Just don't stop the emotes. During "the routine" you get some more fireworks if you are still playing music. -Khan Reaper Kerensky 09:43, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

What a wonderful event[edit]

Thank you Guild Wars aka Gaile aka the Frog for a wonderful party time event. GG --Czar 13:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Now that's what we need in guild wars and all the wiki's. People who appretiate the stuff they do instead of criticize all the minor adjustments to the guild wars game. I did miss the event unfortunatly, hope ya'll had a good time. And try to keep the posotive thoughts? Lt Death 20:36, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Ya, sadly I missed it to. :( Oh well I suppose. — Eloc 01:23, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Bug Fixed[edit]

They just fixed the Bug caused this to end early. The Collectors and Rabbit is there again. Dunno wether the Frog will come again. --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 13:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeh i dunno whether to go farm some more or stand here and wait. --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 13:14, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Fireworks are also redropping from monsters Dealio Pleased its back on, but unsure when the event time our, will they just be the last 2?

At least the rabbit is talking his sentences again.. poke | talk 13:22, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
The Frog appeared in Kamadan EU dis 3 --Arduinna talk 13:30, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
He didnt in Lion's Arch En Dis 1 :/ --SilentStorm User SilentStorm MySig.png 13:32, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Do you think event will be extended or still finish at the original time?
I'm pretty sure it'll finish at the original time, since everything's working again. - Yumiya 16:35, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Yah, but there was no warning about the bug being fixed until basically right before the event! I finally got back on GW less than an hour before they resumed the 'bugged' events, realised sadly that the npcs were gone, and left to do other things before I had to go to school instead of waiting for the event. >.< Silavor UserSilavorSigIcon.png 03:26, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Be gone leechers[edit]

"The most effective and profitable way to afk through this event, is to leave your character standing in the circle doing the /violin emote. Your character will receive 9 sets of fireworks per visit." Um... Did it ever occur to anyone that they updated the build so you had to actively restart your client? That way, all the hundreds of thousands of leechers just "violin"-ing their way through the event drops out of the loop...? Perhaps not the best tip to enter on the official wiki page :S 81.201.217.6 13:41, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

It was working until the bug (see above) ended the event. Now, as the event seems to be started again, they can continue playing violin.. poke | talk 13:42, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
Lol we aren't going to selectively edit the page to prevent something you have a dislike for. Personally i thought that was the best tip ever and netted me about 50 fireworks while I was asleep :) --LemmingUser Lemming64 sigicon.png 13:46, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
No harm done by that type of leeching. Leeching in PvP, however, is a different story. -- Alaris_sig Alaris 13:59, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
I agree, that kind of leeching isnt really harming anyone, but leeching during pvp drive me crazy!
It would be nice if they go to some under-used district (like Korean) to do this though. Kinda ruins it having half the people sitting around playing violin the whole time. Guess the event is over now, so it doesn't really matter.Lativado Isttoll 19:33, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Part Time! buff and animal collectors-avaliable only during Gaile's Farewell?[edit]

Unfortunately I missed the whole event :( Does anybody know if the Party Time! buff and the collectors which collected this event's stuff will be iplemented in future events?Coz' come on!Party Animal was so easy to farm during this event and I'd really love to unload all my trophies to collectors for party/sweet tooth items :( Gettin tons of saurian bones would surely net me quite a few fireworks.

I severely doubt Party Time is gone for good, but don't empty your Xunlai storage any time soon. It might come out for the holiday events, you never know. But on the other hand, I really don't think the collectors are coming back, at least not the animals. The whole 'animal gathering' thing seemed to be a Frog-related special thing. Silavor UserSilavorSigIcon.png 03:29, 8 April 2008 (UTC)
Well; the Dragon Festival is coming soon, so maybe then itll be back ? :-) Davadude 08:22, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

It never started! I missed it :([edit]

Well... I waited for it.... It never started... Waited a second time... it never started. Guess I missed one of the most important events in guild wars history :( farewell gaile, even though I didn't get to go to your farewell party. :( *cusses at the servers for not starting the damn event* --Dren t 20:34, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

It did start but it ended at 3:00 ET today and it was only in Kamadan,Lion's Arch and Kaineng Center--The Forsaken One 20:37, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
In some instances it started up to 10 minutes before the time, so that could be for you. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 20:43, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
In some instances it just doesn't start. Pulpulpullie 20:51, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Remove time schedule?[edit]

I think we can remove the time schedule und replace it with a sentence like "The festival started with 07:01, Saturday, 5 April - a date prior to the official beginning - and ended 19:01, Monday, 7 April. Sometimes the Frog didn't appear, this bug was later fixed in an update." Any comments? BigBlueUser Big Blue Icon.pngtalk 10:18, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

For many events in the past the time schedule has been left on the wiki rather than condensed into a sentence, and it may be useful for reference in the future, especially due to the irregular sequence of events. - User FirstSunspear icon.png FirstSunspear /// Talk 11:18, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

= Lol wtf[edit]

Is it just me or is this really weird? Party time when staff is leaving? That's odd, they seem to like it when that happens xD! Dark Morphon(contribs) 11:25, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Gaile didn't even leave I don't think. I think she just switched jobs within the company. — Eloc 14:46, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
