I would love for the lab sever to return next year like the pink bean class, I think if there wasn't much people playing towards the end then its most likely the timing since you did it in august when people where going back to school, so I think that if you did do it again, it would be a bigger hit if you did it towards the end of may through some time in June, so that way you could build a lot of hype that you would be already doing with the summer update and getting a lot of people who just got out of school for the summer playing on the sever

    I'd honestly like to see the server return as a permanent one, though with more long term viability.
    Remove the crazy stupid drop rate on equips, de-level the player on death instead of reset to 10, a few others.
    Make it an extremely hard server to play, but not as brutal death conditions so that longer play is viable.

    Of course, we need the player base for this, which I don't think we have. So I'd like to at least see it return.
    Even without the legion blocks.

    I think the reason LAB was empty near the end is because most people had finished what they needed to do there. And I think most people still have school in June.
    Perhaps it would be best to bring this event back at a different time of year each time, so different people would have a chance at it.

    But anyway, I support it being a recurring event. I don't think it's fair to deny new players those legion blocks.

    the lab server event gave legion pieces that give a combined 60+ attack. this event needs to come back, it wouldn't be fair for the players that missed it if it doesn't.

    How would you go about making sure previous participants don't walk away with two more legion blocks from a second lab server?

    It's not hard to make the script, that awards these blocks when LAB ends, not give one if the account already has it.
    But even if they don't do that, Legion does not let you get the stats from two of the same block. You can't, for example, fill your Legion with Mechanics and get a ton of extra buff duration. (But you do get the grid coverage from duplicate blocks, which is why the solution in my first sentence is best)

    That's true, I hadn't thought of the same-block issue last night when I posted that.
