    Hey guys and girls!

    Since Lars expressed a wish in #Arkadia last night, for a more community driven events, I figured I might give it a go. You know, I scratch A-teams back, lootius scratches mine...

    However, as I see it, the main problem with PvP events are that they cost a ton of money. You'll be going full steam with the highest DPS you can afford but would end up with nothing, unless you manage to finish top3. Therefore, I figured I could try to set something like this up:

    Prizes:
    1st: 150 PED
    2nd: 100 PED
    3rd: 50 PED

    Prizes to be given out *after* the event in order to be able to sort out cheaters.

    Format:
    Most kills during 30 minutes win. Tracked using in game event system. Taken place somewhere around 2000-2200 UTC.

    Limitation to gear:
    Melee weapons from trade terminal. Naked, no clothes and no armor. No buffs. No heal tools inside the arena, meaning you can heal at revive but no more.

    With these limitations, I imagine that we would get a big bunch of players taking stabs at each others in a big pile in the middle. Buffs are easy to notice. Clothing rule so that you can't hide foot-guards or any other armor. The expected loss would be minimal, meaning, anyone could participate.

    Higher lever players would benefit from their HP, however, since I expect that chaos would arise, that shouldn't make a huge difference.

    Other elements I figured to have; Non-participants joining in with armed vehicles to create a mess.

    --

    Would this be of any interest at all to do this? Would size of prizes need to be increased? Any other suggestions and ideas?

    This would of course require some sportmanship from the participants, but observing the event chat it should be easy to rule out cheaters. I just want to create a big mess.

    You find when you hit the revives at the IFN Commando training grounds that you often loose the event chat and it wont pop backup until you are actually in the training grounds. and then you loose it straight again when you die ;)

    Alot of events created currently are been done on a free basis to enter the event - maybe setting a ticket price to help accomodate some prize's might help as well but again not sure how popular this would be ;) and previose expirience shows participant numbers would drop.

    Also one Really annoying thing currently - you cant clear event registration messages from the message center.

    So when I login I get a constant 27 message alerts - even after logging in clearing down around 16 times now ;(

    There is also the option to use the Event Areas and have these enabled for pvp as well - this means that you have a bigger area to play around in still lots of places to hide and seek.

    Well, if the event is done every fortnight or so I could live with the cost, assuming it turns out to something fun with many active participants.

    Regarding your messages; Have you tried the big green button? :p Some messages, like friend requests since the FL fix, will appear over and over again, until you click the big button. Just clicking X will make them reappear upon next login, not sure this is the case for event messages though...

    This is just so you can see me naked right?

    In all seriousness, it would work so much better if we could make a system event of it like on the event area's. Designated area, pvp on, having a top 3 with most kills show up, winners get prizes.

    A-team, send this to MA HQ. :)

    i still hope there will be an arkadia boxing event like it was announced a few years ago.

    we do have the rings, needs only lots of organizing

    1on1, TT powerfists, no armor, 3x 3mins, weightclasses based on hp,...

    I'm not much of a pvper.... but this event sounds like it could be alot of fun because of the chaos element. :)

    Naked pvp? That could be as fun as a pool full of jello. hehe

    All kidding aside, if I wasn't busy I'd participate :)

    I'm going to give this a nod to bring it back to the recent posts feed of people.

    I will not be running this if we end up with five participants. I was hoping for more interest.

    So let's keep it floating...

    Sounds like a fun event and I'd be up for it but the time is wrong for me - I can't be ingame at that time :( Maybe start a couple of hours earlier and I'm in.

    That was one of the things I thought about when doing EUWBC, but at that time there wasn't enough activity on other planets to enable events of the scale of the Calypso one, and the people who joined would, I guessed, largely have been the same people who would be in the Calypso one anyway. The fact that we can travel between planets so easily is in most respects very much a good thing, but doesn't help in creating the same kind of regional competition that exists in Earth sports.

    Of course when I started doing EUWBC there was only Calypso so that wasn't even a consideration, and what actually happened after other planets (especially Arkadia) got more popular is that the event, and all community events, became less well-attended due to the universal diaspora, which is one of the reasons I haven't done it for the last couple of years.

    I don't think we'll ever again see player-run events on the same scale or that gather as much attention as those old ones did.

    Its such a shame on the Ann Summers Catalogue it gives lengths - widths and etc etc ;P

    you really mean to tell me you guys actually mesure these things ;) No wonder us ladies can do more than one job at once

    Just take this as a shame less plug for Rampant Rabbitts ;P and insight to what Guys get up to - it must make a nice change from nail polish / lipstick / mascara / dresses / clothes / periods / diet & etc etc ;P
