Event Question

Post by driller »

I am working on a PvP/E survival style event. The question is, do you want me to explain the mechanics of how it works, or do you want to discover them while playing?

Do not explain anything... In fact, it can spoil event.
People have to be ready to meet everything.

Sure, it is better if seasoned warrior lead group of young adventures, but it is yet another task.

Event is chance for leader to show his leadership and make team. For young adventures event is way to became member of strong team.

In fact, all events on server what I seen were hunt in crowd... No tactic, no strategy... I do not believe it should work...

PS: Maybe, heads of existing guilds or someone, who wants create his own, can lead events...

What about having for sake of RP a player acting as true leader with Purple Dragon levels ... Just a thought :)

IMHO, everyone can suggest themselves as a small group leader. Also, anyone is free to join the group or not.

I think an organized team has a better chance of winning with fewer losses ... If crowd will be organized into few teams, hunt will became much easier...

PS: in fact, this point even do not require DM team intervence.

This will pretty much be everyone for themselves. You can cooperate, but there will only be one winner.

I'm talking about PvE. I don't like PvP at all, because, IMHO, it doesn't promote collaboration.

By the sounds of it then it is pretty much a PvP event... So I am not interested like Sergeil, I hate PvP too.. Might as well hold such in the arena and be done with it...

There is much more to it than straight up PvP.

Sorry Driller but 1 winner says enough for me to avoid it... Missed both the last 2 events for slightly different reasons looks like I'll be making it a hat-trick by choice...

But team can earn prize for their leader without fight each other, right? In fact, prize is only one.

Sure it can start big war...

Competition between guilds is enough high and only good will of their leaders prevent total war... Any PvP event can break fragile balance...

IMHO, it is better if PvP will be only tournament dueling

This isn't about guilds or cliques. It will sorta be like a battle royal type event. Except it will have what I would call an environmental hazard and tasks to perform.
