This year's festival wow'd me with the number of people participating and having a good time. Last year I think only three or four guilds did a "Fall Festival" themed event. And this year it seemed like EVERYONE was out planning and doing something. It was really cool to see the community so much more involved and having fun. I don't think the June month of contests had as many entries and things happening as this festival did!
And it was wonderful and surprising to see so many missed faces make a return during the festival. A chance to get reacquainted and reminisce. It was nice to log on and see a name on my friend's list or on the DG front page that hasn't been around in ages. It shows that Festival is a memorable event that people make a point to come on back to play and enjoy.
I mean, come on, we had the Great Korunga. What other games can say they have a fruit that spreads blessings and cheer?
All in all, a great festival, and a lot of fun.
