How does the Event Armory Shipment process work? "The Official Guide to Events" doesn't say much but to join the Steam group. What is the next step after joining the "Event Armory Shipment" Steam group?

There isnt a group called event armory shipment.  That is a map on the workshop you can get gear from if needed for the event.  Join the Community Events Group chat in order to run the event during the times specified

This is from The Official Guide to Events FAQ:

"Q: My characters aren't good enough to play events. Can I play anyway? A: Absolutely! Check out the Event Armory Shipment, where you can level your characters up to 100 and get end game gear. The Armory Shipment gear is more than good enough for event maps, even without accessories."


The check out the Event Armory Shipment is a link which leads to: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1212045289.

So there is a group for Event Armory Shipment.

No, there's a group for doing events. At the date, you join the group and find a team to do the event with, and wait for an event host to pick you team. When your team has been picked, the event host will invite you to his/her server (on open), and you run the event. After the event, you want restart DD and go on ranked. The event host will invite you again (on ranked), and you will be traded the event item(s).

The Event Armory Shipment is just a map you download, and when you play it, you can collect armor and such and use it for other events.

Here's a link to the group you have to join:

Sounds good. Is there any guide that is updated to explain this stuff in greater detail?

The guide referenced in the original post is updated when necessary as most things with events dont change.  If there is a section that you feel needs to be made clearer, please post in the comment section there and we will look at improving it as best we can.

Is this where we sign in for the event?

No, signups like in the old days have been discarded in favour of joining Events Group Chat and doing the events right away from there itself. So that more people can participate.
So now you have to join the group chat on this group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/PcCommunityEventsGroup
Refer to the following image in case you do not know how to join group chats -- http://i.imgur.com/doy0RYF.png
Then wait for an Event Host to call you up if they have a spot free.
Event Hosts can be identified by a Silver or Golden 5Star besides their name in the members list in the group chat left side.

This is the map link -- http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1266719135
Make sure to download the map and test it out see if it works for you. If the game appears to be frozen, just press Enter or Escape key a few times and it should load up. Once done testing, just restart the game to avoid getting any errors while joining the lobby. 
Rest is the same as before, you do the event on Open, and get the rewards on Ranked.

Thx to Lolzocatz for running us and as ever the event team for designing the map and running the waiting room etc


For me this was one of the best event maps for ages - well done and thanks everyone involved (including Arcama who did all the building)
