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. :)
No offence, but I don't think a lot of us actually had a "blast" doing the kissed by fire event. I did not see the point of it. It gave us a small amount of feathers that can't even buy us a respec stone and a title that doesn't mean anything because everyone else has it now. What is the point of doing a PvE zerg event if the rewards are so small? We were not even given a "special reward" yet.

I understand you want to support all players but majority of the players want RvR. Part of the reason why I am pushing for more RvR events is because a lot of people quit due to zerging and keep/tower taking. Like tonight, I went out in a duo and got added by 14+ mid stealthers at bled docks while I was doing a 2v2. I did vote for new frontiers but now I totally regret it.

Phoenix should bring back the 3v3 event or 8v8 event and activate it like every weekend or every other weekend. It's already been done before and it was a lot of fun so not sure why it hasn't been brought back more often. I played beta on this server and beta was probably the most fun I had on Phoenix just because they brought so many different RvR events that it made it exciting to PvP again.

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?
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
For some reason I was thinking races were not all used.
I guess they could use mob types
Though don’t know if animations would work with them

Just going to list some ideas:

Halloween/Dia De Muertos-
- Dungeon with demon/skeleton/pooka/ghost mobs
-Bosses: legion, prince, shadownash, skeleton from Raum, a the big ghost in raum (wrath of winter I think).

-Great Pumpkin trophy
-Full body pooka trophy
-Jack-o'-lantern bags
-Pumpkin Moon
-Reskin of the Darkness Rising armor that looks like the bones

Turkey Boss fight
Thanksgiving table trophy for the house

- Santa in the night sky
- Presents show up randomly in zones
- Presents can be used and will give rog/money/claw potion/feathers
- Frost giant mob with a santa hat spawns in a zone in each realm and will drop feathers RoGs and presents
- make presents tradeable
- allow us to buy feather presents for people that when opened will give them a portion of the feathers like 3/4 the feathers. (1000 feather present will give 750 feathers)
- feather presents go away at the end of the year

New Years-
- fireworks purchased with feathers
- keeps and towers shoot fireworks when taken
- fireworks show each night in capital cities
This is the winner idea here!!!

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.
These are some interesting ideas to start from.

Honestly I just want a 3v3 or 4v4 arena again. I thought that was the most fun and it wouldn't require much work since it has already been done. Also make it so you can form your group with other realms again but only if the realm timer is suspended during the event. Otherwise, if the arena is dead, you and your group are stuck in different realms.

I also liked the idea where they had multiple group size arenas but it spread the people out too much and it was difficult to get a fight. If you were to do that again you would probably need to do ranges i.e. solo, 2-4, 5-7, 8.

Re: Holiday/RVR EVENTS. Need IDEAS

These are some great ideas. Beatrix I totally get you and I hope we do get some more RVR events. I do miss the events we had on Live as they did bring a lot people out. Maybe the Dev's will read your comment and implement something to that effect. We do NEED RVR only events....We can only hope for it and may just maybe if will happen. As for the special item yeah I totally agree I wish we would have gotten that already. I even made a post on the battle of the devs post again trying to get us an update. I think for future events if they do something like that again then they need to have the item ready but Ash did do a fast build of the event. Thx for commenting and hope to see you on the battlefield.

I think if they do arena type fights with set group sizes it would be best if only one group size was used per event to maximize people finding each other.

Has anyone mentioned a Mordred type event?
That would be fun. Open PvP everywhere. Group up with anyone, can be attack/killed by anyone that is not in your group or guild.
Only safe zone is housing, maybe capitals, but I prefer not.
Players can port to any realm.
Players can port to any housing, but can't buy from merchants that are not from their own realm.
Disable NF for the duration of the event?
Special title for anyone that kills a certain number from their own realm. Maybe that traitor title from the other thread. Midgardian Traitor.
