This time, the update seems to be insufficient.
We could always just not get any updates at all. If you've played on this server long enough to get 27x, then you know well enough that complaining here gets you nowhere. In fact, it tends to get everyone else into a worse situation. It's literally the update before the Christmas update. Cut them some slack. We're going to have a big update next cycle. Plus, as Aran noted already, there's plenty of things that make this place 1000x better and easier to handle than the original server.
Stop angering the staff just because you didn't get a bajillion events this cycle. We honestly needed a smaller patch this time to help calm everybody down and get people to playing because the game is worth playing, not just for whatever new thing they spring up. Let people focus on leveling their characters. Or trying a new one. Or a new playing style. Or just in general doing something different with their gameplay. This is around the time many shops spring up and finally they won't be littered with event-based product.
