PC Community Events

Recommended Posts

What Are Events?

Events are official CDT(Community Development Team) sponsored affairs. They typically last an entire weekend Friday - Sunday. You, as the participant, will play the designated Steam Workshop map on Open mode with a group of other players and the event host. Afterwards, you will be given a rare and unique, official event item that can be used on ranked Trendynet servers.

What Are Event Items?

Event items are rewards given to those who participated in official CDT sponsored events. They are unique items that are not obtainable through normal gameplay. They are momentos to the event itself and typically hold high value in player to player trading.

When Do Events Happen?

You can count on an event the weekend after every new CDT update. However, we are also working on getting more dates in between to host even more events. Be on the lookout in the forums for announcements!

How Do You Find Out About Events?

Announcements for events will be posted and stickied in the General Discussion section of the forums as well as announced in the PC Community Events Group.

What is the PC Community Events Group?

It is a steam group that facilitates the running of events. It is not necessary to be a member to participate but for the best experience, it is strongly recommended that you are!

How Do You Participate in an Event?

To participate in an event, you will join the PC Community Events Group chat room during the event weekend. There you will wait until an event host calls out for people to join their game and then run the map. The average time it takes to join the chat room, find a  group, run the map, and receive rewards is one  to one and a half hours.

Can I Participate With My Friends?

Yes, most events will be six player maps, and you can bring as many people as the map allows -1 for the host as a single group. Plus it's more fun to play with your friends!

How Do  You Receive Your Event Items?

After your group has run the event map the host will invite everyone into their tavern in Ranked mode to trade the event item reward(s).

What Are Event Item Traces?

Traces are proof that your event item came from the event itself and was not duped/hacked into the game. They usually consist of pictures of trades of the item between players, links to won giveaways, and a link to the event's trace sheet.

What is an Event Trace Sheet?

An event trace sheet is a document published by the CDT Events Team that lists the Steam ID of every single player who received a reward during that particular event. We post this document after the event weekend in the original announcement thread of the event. You can give the link to your name on this sheet as a trace when trading.

What are the Event Rules?

  • Each person may only run any particular event once. For example: You run Event A on Friday afternoon and receive your item reward. You are not allowed to run Event A again even on another account. However, you are allowed to run Event B and Event C in the future each one time as well.
  • Participants must be respectful to hosts as well as other participants. Event hosts reserve the right to kick anyone from the event who is disruptive, rude, or derogatory to them or other participants at any time without reward.
  • While the event maps will be run on open, hacked and/or modded gear is not allowed except for specifically designated gear by the events team. We feel that participating in an event with game possible gear will give the most enjoyable challenge and experience for everyone. Which is why this rule is in place.

When is the Next Event?

to be announced

Why Do Some Events not Have a Trace Document?

In the past, you had to sign up for events on the forums and only those who signed up in advance could run. This signup post was then used as your trace for the event. Now that the CDT has taken over the official events, we have decided it is better to go without signups and post a document of traces afterwards. You can head over to the Trading section to see a list of all the previous event items as well as some of the old event signup threads.

So There are Two Sets of Events?

Yes basically. Official Trendy sponsored events ended sometime in February 2014. However, since the CDT took over DD1 development, Trendy has given us permission to resume hosting officially sponsored events. That is why you will hear some players referring to the new vs. old events.

Yes we still plan to do more events  just don't have a date for the next one yet.


We could use help with creating them.  Current resources are focused on CDT updates so if anyone has some skill in map creation or gameplay using the DDDK, please feel free to contact me if you are interested in helping out with the event map creation.

I can help with as much testing as needed. Can't promise about map creation though since I've never used DDDK. :/
I'll let you know on Steam if I get a map idea or something as such or if I can get some time with DDDK. :D

Hi guys,

I used to play this game a lot, then stopped for no apparent reason. but as soon as i saw the Beta come out, i started playing again.

anyway, i completed the dark elf hunting event and got both the event items (vortex hammer and vortex shield), but now that beta has been added to the live version, i have lost both the items credited to my beta inventory... anyone know if theres anything i could do to get either of them back?

We will typically post announcements just about everywhere a week be for the event. The announcements typically go on steam, steam group, and the forums. If there is another place that you feel would be good to post the announcements to then let me know and I can look into it

You can't do old events once they are over.
I mean you can go play the map but won't get any Event Items related to that event.

If you might miss some event you can always inform the Events Team beforehand so they can arrange for you to do the run at a later date.

I would like play the last event becaose i missed it. 

You can download the map on open and simply replay it. You will not receive any of the Eventprices tho, as -like you said- missed those.

Simply grab some friends and there you go.
