    Hello, after yesterday, it's time to say the truth, I can post pictures too of the failure and disaster we all saw, but Mesanna was there and she can admit how awful the event was pepared

    There should be EMs dedicated to FELUCCA events, you simply CAN'T adapt a trammel old player (actual EMs) to make good events in fel.

    The Fel Ems should be old and expert pkers and pvpers OVER 30 years old, adults.

    Yesterday on Atlantic we saw Cow (Com) hailstorming the public inside the house, then MM (TB) attacking ppl inside the house and at the end best thing, one EM BANNED all playerd inside the house so they appeared dismounted among 10 mounted pkers,
    so we God and TF+R (SL) had to kill everybody just to clear the area and when we finished all the troubles we couldn't enter in the house anymore, they deleted the event!!

    I mean Felucca events would be uber!! If made well I am sure there could be 100 players always following them on atlantic , yesterday even if the event per se was a disaster, I hope you realize that you created a funny fight with 40 ppl getting massacred and butchered


    Events could be tons:


    1) last man standing (Jhelom pit)
    2) capture the flag
    3) reds vs blues fights
    4) pvp tournaments, mages vs mages dexers vs dexers, no fields no summons no pets no forms
    5) save the princess ( creation of a area where there is the evil group defending and the good army trying to save the princesd, prizes if they can conquer the area etc)
    6) the run ( players have to run inside a dungeon , the first one who arrives gets a prize, hiding and stealth not allowed)
    7) creation of a red town or fixing bucs and making various events there, massive fights in taverns , fighting polymorphed while chickens vs orcs etc)

    There could be TONS of ideas to make and develop

    Guarding each event a dedicated death squad that kills any player who tries to ruin the event

    Recruit Fel EMs and make fel events beautiful

    I'd say it's a good idea only for the more populated shards like Atlantic, Great Lakes, etc.
    It would be a waste of resources for the low population shards like Legends and Sonoma where you're lucky to have one organized guild in Felucca.

    Felucca events would be really fun, if people knew that the could participate and not get attacked. But even at that point, a Feluccan EM would still need more help and extra powers. You'd need an "enforcer EM" to watch everyone to make sure nobody messes with the event. They'd also need the power to insta-kill anyone on sight who tries to mess it up and automatically gives everyone looting rights. That way, the player gets the message loud and clear to not mess with EM events.
    Still, you'd also need someone to make sure that the actual event is running smooth.

    This was a 1 v 1 PvP event? I thought it was a fish in a barrel event created specifically for COW by the EMs.

  4. the developers really need to work on creating an area where combat is not allowed unless you're inside a 9x9 arena (or whatever dedicated size) or this will continue to happen. i don't want to drop names, but other private shards have got this dueling system down... why not take SOME of their ideas so we at least have some kind of working system to have these tournaments.

    i don't blame the EM as much, as they are limited, but the developers really need to step in and make a concerted effort into establishing a tournament zone that is impervious to what we all saw last night. it's unprofessional on their end and immature on the players end.

    Sl killed everybody at the end, Cow was jus griefing , when it came to fight they all died.

    Anyway in my opinion EM could easily make nice events, just need to be organized well

    Maybe the EMs should talk to EM Drosselmeyer, if he's still around. Also, Hoffs and Raptor on Siege might be able to give them some pointers.

    I don't see what preparations could possibly prevent what happened. I can admit to not being there, but just reading your post it sounds more of the same "players fault" nothing to do with the EMs...aside from "deleting" the event, but then if I was them (or even if you were them) would we really continue an event when the players can't even properly participate? I mean, it doesn't really matter what you do, even with people "guarding" how do you know who will guard and who will just kill everyone? How do you know the guarders will be sufficient enough to actually fend off such things (if the scale was big enough). Lots of things to consider here, and plainly put this was the players fault, not to say it couldn't have been slightly better planned, I just do not see the outcome being anything other than it was (given the details you gave and the pic lynk posted)

    The house had to be designed better, they made the sits for the public on the side and ppl could be hit, he had to make the sits in the back in front of the mountain , so nobody could hit the public.

    The problem would have been solved

    This.

    GL has had the exact same problems. It doesn't matter what the EMs say/do or how perfectly they create a tournament building, a percentage of PLAYERS WILL ATTEMPT TO RUIN THE EVENT.

    This has happened at every Fel tournament that has been held on GL, one or two guilds decide to be asshats and attack the spectators. Heck, this happens at non-tournament Fel events as well. It is 100% the fault of immature players. The only way to "prevent" this is to stop holding events in Fel for the handfuls of people who can't seem to comport themselves with a modicum of decorum for an hour or two.

    Personally, I find it HILARIOUS that people are suggesting non-combat zones... IN FELUCCA. Where's the risk vs rewards cheerleaders now?

    Guess we'll have to completely change how the game works to make EM events more enjoyable for a select audience. :sad3:

    Nobody took pictures because you aren't worth pushing the print screen button for all your deaths, comps are incapable of holding that much data :(

    I like to see them come to bring some EMs to Siege to try out ideas for Felucca events on us.

    Won't be much damage lol but still, might as well make some use of us Siege folk :p

    We have had an EM and he's been doing a great job, although its now a month since we had our last event. Which is a bit sad :(

    And it was mentioned by Mesanna that Siege would be used for training EMs. Yet to see anything...

    Fel events are griefers' paradises.

    Blaming the EMs for that defies all logic. Unless of course you mean for having them at all, but that isn't what you mean.

    When the GL EMs have had events along exactly the lines you describe, the result have been whining, accusations of favoritism, etc.

    And that is when they aren't griefed in exactly the same manner that events not along the lines you describe are.

    It isn't the fault of the events at all, it is the players, it is us.

    For those who say this stuff isn't really griefing because it occurs in Felucca where you can "punish" the griefer....Well, rather than point out the obvious facts and start a pointless "debate" I'll say that I mean "grief" in the loosest possible sense: "any attempt to disrupt."

    doesnt matter what facet you put an EM event in, its most likely, at least, soured by the same loudmouth griefers. If an EM event is goin on the pvpers swarm it for a chance at deco rares they can sell. this of course causes opposing sides to start griefing/trashtalking each other and making the event unenjoyable for others. The veterans know to mute the annoying players right away but some dont. Some think if they tell the player to stop being a pest that they will stop. But when called out these players get twice as bad. If we could get the EMs some sort of punishing power then maaaaybe it would help but, as is, the events are destined to be an annoying experience.

    Wouldn't people being able to go inside be able to hit them? Like I said, I was not there. But no matter how you cut it, it is players that are to blame. Again you can put a small part on the EMs, maybe 5% at best, but over all the lack of an overall mature player base in fel. Not to say everyone is immature, but as can be seen some obviously are. No excuse for that behavior.

    That is more of a bridge squeeze than a face palm. Try just a little bit harder no named player.

    To be fair, your screen shot doesn't prove COW won either, so same could be same for you. (I saw both SL and TB in your screen shot alive and kicking.)

    Fel events suck because the EM's don't know their participants.

    Generally speaking Fel players do NOT want to sit around and listen to some lame story line about a magic potion or how this princess has gone missing. Fel players do NOT want to have to kill 8,000,000,000,000,000,000 dragons for the chance of l33t loot.

    Fel players want to PVP. We don't need a reason to PvP or some lame story line. Start the event out where PvP can start out with in 30 secs. and then watch the fun happen.

    It is that simple... Short sweet and to the point.

    Hmm...if I were an EM...all my felucca events would also feature large spawns of pixies,unicorns,kirin,meer, and other assorted good karma creatures. Just to make all the player participants feel welcome. :)
