Re: Holiday/RVR EVENTS. Need IDEAS

This is a post from discord I got from an alliance member. Since they don't do the forum I figured I would copy it for them.

@Jenini I don’t do forums anymore but if your looking for a rvr event cant go wrong with a blue Sunday I’ve run one over on uth for hib it brings all realms in for one giant fight all day I’m linking a video of the green Saturday I ran and I’m pretty dam sure @Shiane and Odin were there for it.

Yet again another great Idea. :) Listed is a video I of such event for example. Hope it doesn't get erased as its for getting IDEAS.. It was filmed over a year ago.. Ash this would be fun as well. They colors are great a way to split the realms up I see by the color cloaks. You will need to scroll to 6 mins in to see all the people and the huge fight. Nothing happens before then but a long run to the battle.

If not allowed just let me know and ill take video down I don't mind :)

Ok guys so we just had the Event to kill a Game-Master.. I suggested that we also get some holiday events that might help with the Realm points or Pve for the realms. I would love to see some of your ideas and maybe the Devs or a game master will start something up like they did for the Battle of Devs that I asked for back in May.. I would suggest maybe a Halloween event of some sort or a Christmas event. Doesn't have to be like the pumpkin patches even though over on live they were lots of fun to camp as a stealther. What are some of your favorite events and how would you like to see them over here? I love the idea or adding new things to this game and I love the fact that the game-masters and Devs actually consider those ideas. Lets try to come up with something that will help the realms again as the event we just had was super fun. I know mid bg had great numbers for the event. I think we had 174 one night, 214 and 224 on the last two events. Your ideas can be for Xp or Rps related whatever you think of list it and lets see if it will happen. Any idea is a good idea.... I hope to see lots of comments and if this isn't for you then I totally understand no matter some1 wont like this post and that's ok as I'm just trying to keep fun going for the game and help keep the realms excited about doing things together. So get to listing :)

See you on the Battlefield and remb RED is DEAD.

I have nothing against your post and I appreciate you trying to start some events but I do not understand why PvE events is being encouraged more than RvR events? I understand it's the holidays but why not change it up and add PvP events instead? It will be more exciting and fun.

DID u see the title. EVENTS/RVR. Not sure why the title isn't updating over here as I edited it after I made the post.. EDITED once again..lolThat's why I'm asking for ideas so we can get something going. I'm totally for the RVR event as well as any PVE event. I like to support all players in whatever they do and just hope I can help bring some kind of fun to the game. That's why I started this post since we all had a blast doing the Kissed by fire event. It really brought the realm out and if we could get that in RVR that would be awesome as well. Just list your ideas and who knows you might get chosen to help create that event. I really enjoyed being apart of the kissed by fire event. Even though Ashok did 99.9 percent of it and I was the one that asked for it. I got to suggest the title. So when it actually happened I was super excited to see the realm come together for something I thought of. Im hoping I can bring some of that excitement to you guys as well. So again list as many ideas as you can think of and you never know it might actually happen. :)

Winter/Xmas RVR type Event

1. Use a snow zone
2. Snow ball fight (mids vs. hibs vs. albs)
3. Each class/race has different snowball making prowess and skills

For example a Troll can make large snow balls while a lurikeen makes small ones. Making large ones takes more time but they do more damage. But as casters we can have the option to make them ice balls so they would hurt more...

Troll Snowball
3.0s making time
200 dmg

Lurikeen Snowball
2.5s making time
125 dmg
1.0s make ice ball
+100 dmg

(no i did not balance out the numbers in the example)

Can play off each class/race slightly...maybe thanes throw the snow ball and the electrocute the person when it hits (water and lightning don't mix you know), one class shoots icicles, maybe a few turn into rolling snowballs (pbaoe), etc. Can even work siege in giant snowballs flying everywhere instead of rocks.

So still realms against each other just another way to fight.

I would like a rvr zone like thid, compact crazy action.

For Halloween they could do an event where mids albs and hibs come together to take back a keep guarded by the devs. And they are worth rps. Idk I am bad at making thing up

Or double rp bonus, everyone likes rps

How about a BG like event were you alternate between defending realms. 1 realm defends and 2 realms attack, joining forces. Attacking realms become friendly for the duration and can group up and chat. Spread out objectives, make it so that solo/small man can take/defend objectives with the main objective being a keep in the center.

edit: couple more ideas -
- Event were group sizes are changed / more or less. This can be restricted to a certain zone or can be global.
- Instanced PvP were you queue up and groups are formed randomly from the pool of queued players.
- Instanced PvP were you queue up and random players are assigned as group leaders. Group leaders alternate in choosing members.
Bombzz - SM

That would be fun to try :)

You want to do something to stir up the game?
Without destroying its roots?

Create a fourth “realm”
They are nomads, vagabonds, mercenaries.
They are allied to one of the three realms that is deemed “lowest” by some algorithm.
They can’t claim keeps.
They may start a battle sided with Midgard, but at any point their allegiance may shift and they then turn on the realm they were following.
I believe this would work not only as an event but as a core game mechanic.
The only problem is new races? Classes?
Could you use the unused races in the game? Maybe some of the unused classes? Possibly creating new classes by mixing weapon and/or spell lines?

Lot of work but I think it would create a buzz and help with retaining players and keeping them.

The 3 unused races are all minotaurs with nearly identical appearance and most mob models don't show the armor they have equipped to make new races from
If you count bainshee form and vampiir as their own races I guess there're 5
