    I have too say that i very much enjoyed this event, it was really fun too participate in it. It's was very fun too create theories about the treasures locations and checking it out if the spot was correct or not. The problem for me at least was that when you had gone through the easy ones it really felt like you were grasping thin air with some of them. I can remember theorizing #9 with Tyranny about stage 3 and 5 and getting the feeling of did i dig at the wrong spot or is it actually another map. Same with #8 like i digged at every spot the stupid dog spawned in but nothing, shit was demoralizing. Maybe this is a sign of a brainlet but oh well.

    Another thing i want too point out is that at least for me i felt quite overwhelmed with having 15 clues too work with at the start. I think this was one of the reasons why so many people gave up so early because you don't really know where too start even though some of them being super obvious it kinda goes over your head and you feel defeated.

    Otherwise i really liked those treasures that was hidden on stage maps (kinda reminds me of tbc attunement). My favorite ones were probably #3 and #13 they had those more obscure references but still have some lead you could work with. That's what makes creating these hints so hard i could imagine. I have too say this was very refreshing too participate in and i would enjoy having a similar event in the future but maybe you dig for coordinates and the map name. It was fun Neon

    Congratulations for @Feach for being the first one to find all 15 of them!!!

    Also thanks to everyone who participated and gave me feedback on it. I will probably do something similar in the future again and will take your suggestions into account then.

    I really couldnt find any of this Tresures, im so bad with this type of things. But everything went pretty well.
    Good job again @Neon, the hard work and coding shit payed off. Hope you can come up with more events like this in the future, but try something more easy for the noobs, like me. :struppipls:

    Thanks bAka and Neon,

    Very nice work Neon. The treasures where it was clear to be only in 1 spot once you figured it out were the best imo. Pretty much what Kaka said maybe some of them could have been less ambiguous like #2



    that was confusing until I got the shoe clue. Also #12 with the boatescape fruits doing brain power if you collect all of them :trigger:. Maybe next time start with some dead easy clues to get people interested.
