    Great showing of participants on the shard tonight, saw some faces we hadn't seen in ages. Everything went off quite smoothly, despite some annoying thieves with nothing better to do, and some mix ups with random minuscule things. For one of the first events hosted, it went smooth.

    I am quite glad to here that the event went well. Thieves are a part of our community though... It is part of the charm Siege has.

    *shrugs* If you do not feel pvp stealing is a viable and interesting part of Siege... Then i don't know what to say.

  7. It was enjoyable seeing so many participating - perhaps especially the thieves. ;-)

    It was good to see a live event again

    We are lucky on have these on Seige. The last couple I attended were on Atlantic and complete lag fests.

    Was a tad bit lame that I was banned from the event house right as I walked in the door.
    Considering I gave the event rose back that was just sitting there on the table and I was able to pick it up, just to be a nice sport.
    Being that it was a shard event, I found that a bit annoying that I couldn't attend the 2nd part of the event for some reason.

    Hosting the event inside a house was what allowed such discrimination to happen. What was wrong with the Malas arena outside Luna? Public events are supposed to be public events.

    also forgot, or another annoying thief would have been there.
    Please to remember- just because character may be thief, or pk, or beggar, does not mean that person will practice skill at event. They may just want to attent, observe, participate. Before banning, or exclusion, shouldn't unwelcome act occur first?

    Sorry bud I wasn't having more drama and B.S. be pulled inside the tournment. You weren't going to compete in the tourney and I had the other house beside it set up publically if you wanted to watch. People had multiple nice weapons and other items. So with that said i dont think thiefs needed to attend close up.

    And to be honest you didn't get lucky with that rose. You saw him removing them and you kept dragging the rose till he unlocked it.... Dont pull that crap. I thank you for giving it back and not making it a pain in the ass for the EM to deleate it and make a new one.

    I agree with pwn on this. Some of the gear being used was on the higher end and i was glad to see what was being done to keep the would be thieves outta the house. It's one thing to grab an item in the field it's another to take something outta a tourney. *applauds their actions*

    This event sounds like everything that has become wrong with Siege, every play style is acceptable unless someone else doesn't like or agree with it? Once upon a time players policed the shard and looking from those screen shots i fail to see how you can afford to ban anyone from an event.

    Thieves have always gotten a bad rap from players. It's nothing new. But I do find it funny that players have no problem killing other players at events, but then complain about being stolen from.

    Personally, I wasn't going to steal anything from other players until Pwn thought it would be funny to kill me...completely unprovoked.

    At that point...I stole a few things, including a couple of runes from the EM. (they were worthless)...la

    I enjoyed the event. It was nice to have quests geared for all types, including us that are poor fighters. I wasn't able to stay long at the tourney, but it looked like folks were having fun. With any luck I will get an article up soon.
