Out of ideas/sad excuse of an event?


33 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm just wondering what the heck Kakao? :/ Are you or PA out of ideas for events? I'm not trying to be insulting but how the heck can you call "oh look, the exp thing we've had every weekend for OVER HALF A YEAR" an event still? :/. It's not an event if it happens ALL THE TIME, it's a PERMANENT thing then.

Are you desperate for player count on weekends or what? Because rn that's about the only reason I can think of as to why you'd call 100% exp bonus an "event" anymore instead of a sad excuse for making people play extra on weekends. I'll just say my honest thoughts about this once but: this is pathetic. Have it on every weekend, but sure af don't call it an event then. 

 

Before anyone say it's rude to say they're out of ideas, Ik Ik, they've had some decent ones and "different" ones lately. But beside the lamps from loyalty shop, christmas, the new year celebrations and the halloween events, when was the last "original" or "not just a repeat of what we've already had" event? :/ Examples: Exp events, attendance rewards, exp events, 1 year anniversary boss(es) (heard this one was worse than the rooster thingy boss?), exp events, "play your way" (kinda ironic name for a event only rewarding 3 specific types of play in a game with way more), blackstone event. Those are just a few examples... oh right! did I mention EXP EVENT?!? -_-

 

Idk, I'd just personally at least like a lot more... creative and "fresh ideas" in terms of events :3 A CO-OP hunting one for example, or why not one for farming (fences/crops) since you've had for gathering and fishing? Heck, think big and in PvP terms and you might be able to arrange something like "Kill the Admin" in arena or G vs GM/CM xD (assuming they turned off invulnerability and the (near?) 100% dodge :x even if it meant like 10 damage per player/skill/attack, it COULD be possible then). 

I don't know, maybe I'm just salty atm but I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas folks :).

 

Have a good evening, 

Greetings: Traveler.

Don´t have many games to compare to, but I did play Gw2 in recent memory. Compared to that game bdo looks pretty bland when it comes to events...would be cool if someone created a thread were you could submit ideas for events.

add to that a rng probability of stealing an item (20% ish, 1 in all items, a stack is counted as multiple items) I'm in.

the events in this game are garbage....im all about letting people catch up.

but when 90% of the event consists of getting items of grinding mobs (when you were probably gonna grind anyways) its flat out laziness...

give the people their handouts if you want, but add some depth to the events so I have something to do besides grind...

I stopped grinding to see if I could live off money from all the welfare events. It's actually working pretty well. You make a lot of money by doing absolutely nothing other than logging in.

This was an event they used to run weekly on Shaiya. Monster Madness was pretty much that - every mob in the video is either a boss or a sub-boss. They all had their full drop pool and we're spawned by the GM's in a specific place for 30 mins. Any boss still alive after 30 mins was deleted.

 

It was a lagfest but it was excellent fun - particularly since it was faction based PvP and took place on a PvP map.

No because every undegeared player won't progress never because top players will harass and steal (eventually) all theI gear from more weak people.

That can only be done in a game where the gear isn't that important not where gear = 80% power.

what would the incentive to steal low gear? add to that you can't sell stolen items to mp if you want, but why going to steal someone weapons who is undergeared is beyond me...

(family/character bound gear are unstealable, obviously)

a really easy protection? take 500 salts, each one count as 1 items, gl for the thief getting what he wants.

Same incentive people have for taking their high leveled characters into noob pvp zones and posting it on Youtube/Twitch.

Their diet requires more Salt.

The hunt, gather, fish for items to trade in, daily log in, or the black spirit adventure I like. Simple and easy to do. Events that involve an active GM presence or a scheduled/scripted boss appearance are possibly the worse ones to do with a game like this. Making half the server go to one area is just bad. If they want to do an event boss, they need to make them a scroll boss that a player can do at their leisure, or a random appear chance through out the day similar to world bosses.

 

All these hand outs of endgame gear has got to stop tho, even if they are mostly RNG based. It's great they are willing to have them as event rewards. With how enchanting is, being given a +0 boss armor/rare jewelry isn't totally game breaking, but still, I wouldn't be surprised if 90% of those items in the server are from event rewards. Look at the 2k+ Manos Ruby Necklace in the market... Ease up on their obtain chance instead of handing them out, and give some a lower minimum price.

They can't get stronger so they can't steal you.

That's a very roundabout way of thinking, you steal so they can't steal?

Seriously tho, if you want to discourage, there's multiple solution (actual jail sentence where you can do nothing for a month, harsher penalty if you die...)

Agreed :3 Liked the first dice game too and the football one. But after 1, maybe 2 times, events become too repetitive Imho :/. The dice one for example.

I believe the dice one is more about having yet another income of things. And its not a bad one even, everyone feels happy when they score a 5mil item.
