Friday Night Brawls!

Discussion in 'UO Oceania' started by Dain, Aug 4, 2009.

    So, there's a plan!

    That's right there's a plan! And you're all involved!

    This Friday night at 7pm AEST, the Minax PvP houses will be opened to the public for a night of introductory PvP.

    The night will be organized and controlled so there will be no unnecessary combat or harassment.

    The event will be aimed towards players with little to no experience in PvP but will be entertaining for anyone who wishes to attend.

    We implore anyone and everyone to come along and join in on the fun.

    The night wont be dictated by dueling or direct combat, there will be plenty of experiences players present dedicated to answering questions, giving out tips and just good ol' "education mucking about".

    The plan is to range the events of the night from dueling to QA's, Games and Comps, and as all PvPers love, bounteous loot for all (aka Prizes).

    So in summary:

    What: A controlled and organized night dedicated to not only the finer points of PvP but to widening the knowledge base and understanding of all wishing to explore Fell.

    Where: The Minax PvP houses are located at DESPISE Entrance Felluca, this is where we will be meeting.

    When: Friday 7th August at 7pm AEST.

    Who is Welcome: Everyone! There will be plenty to do no matter what your playstyle! If you don't want to PvP then you can partake in the games, place bets and observe the PvP or participate in the discussions and QA's.



    The plan is to have the event hosted on a regular basis by volunteers and/or groups/guilds. Minax will probably be hosting the first few but hopefully as participation and interest grows, new faces will emerge with fresh ideas and new methods.

    Are yes, because we frequently use the houses for house hiding and all, Despise entrance being such a practical location for it and all. The "PvP Houses" entail that they were design solely for the use of PvP, in the terms of arena's etc (plus a few surprises to be revealed later on in the night).

    And yes Friday night, perhaps other nights would be convenient for others, but since I start work late Friday nights, Fri evening is a time I'm guaranteed to be home, it would be a more effective event if I was there afterall, for the moment anyway.

    Unless someone else nominates to run it then its on Friday.

    As I stated previously, Friday night is the only night I'm guaranteed at home, due to my work.

    Week nights wont work for me, I'm home late often and I generally have homework/study, Friday I work after 10pm so I am home until then. Sat I tend to go out.

    I suppose it could be Sunday afternoon in the future.

    It turns out quite nice, I can only came to the first one hour, I believe Shiel may have the full coverage of the event.

    We had some pvp games such as 4vs4 where each team divided into attacker/healer where attackers can only cast damage spells and healer can only cast healing spells. Targetting game in despise passage, where a person tries running through a tunnel without being targetted.

    EM Aeon was there too! Pity i couldn't stay towards the end, but it was a good fun, thank you Dain (an emo) for arranging the event.

    Special thanks to those who came to the event: Shiel [A_A], EM Aeon, Horus [LOTD], Necro [LOTD], Ares [EOB], Deneya [EOB], Anakin Skywalker, Merlin, the condemned, Trump D'scar [MP], Prophet [GIMP], Venus [AUPK], Marcus [GIMP] and some who i may have missed mentioning.

    Since there was a good turn out for the first event, and lots of good feedback; it will definitely be on again soon!

    I'm off to the snowies for 10 days soon so I am going to skip it for 2 weeks, but once I am back I intend to make sure it happens regularly!

    Anyone else is welcome to host it, the houses are all public and if you need friend/co-own for any reason, Oceania would assuredly oblige.

    Oh, I think Shiel is writing up a report on last Fridays aswell.
