Idea for a great party challenge

    With a friend we though about a relly amazing idea that we wish to share:

    - The acces to this event could be like peerless with keys and the area must be instanced (like the new peerless)

    - The area could be everywhere just need a big space

    The challenge start with entering this are where you find 10 monsters with a random body. At the beginning this monsters could have something like 50 pf and very low damage.
    When you kill this 10 another 10 will spawn stronger than the other one, and level after level they grow always more strong and fast.
    At some point (like level 12) they become mages too and after more levels necromancers.

    The purpose is kill this creatures and survive as long as you can with your party. This monsters must not have gold in the loot, just something like total refresh, greater heal potions, enchanted apples, bandages, arrows, reagents, etc... just for help players to survive between each level.

    When you die (if you are in party when all the party members are dead), you will be kicked off this area (with your body) and resurrected. Here you (and everyone else in your party) could open a chest and get your reward.

    The reward must be based on the level reached by you. For example, if you die in level 1 you get a bottle of wine, if you die at level 100 you get a wonderfull unique artifact (just because level 100 must be really hard and doable only with a full strong party)

    We think this system could be really fun, just because it is not always the same single boss, but monsters with a random body and the reward always randomized :thumbup1:

    I know, we will never see something like this here in uo, but would be a great thing if the devs will consider it :)

    GREAT IDEA! :thumbup1::thumbup1:

    That sounds like alot of fun...

    Would party be required? or would it be ok to go in there by yourself and see how far you can get?

    I reckon the monsters should spawn rather fast or maybe set a lower number of levels.... 100 sounds like a weekend project with too little sleep :)

    I like the idea about random monsters with random strengths and the random loot at the end...

    Maybe you could be rewarded with a title for reaching lvl 100 (or top lvl)

    the system could be balanced to reach level N in solo and N + 20 with a good party and the idea of a title would be really good :D

    I like the idea, but just to play devils advocate...

    What's built in to prevent a party of 10 people all on mage/tamers just jacking up everything with 10 greater dragons and mana dumps just for the reward?

    Think of something? hehe
    - Maybe mobs in the higher lvls that provoke pets onto eachother or onto the players.
    - Maybe some magical bariear blocks for more than 1 or 2 magics creatures, thus preventing tamer only groups :)
    - Sink holes that fat players or big animals will sink into :)

    I guess renewing the game is something we should avoid? :)

    champions are fun, but now are quite boring because are always the same thing...

    I speak about an endless challenge where spawn random monsters and they grown strong level after level and if you are in 10 tamers you'll reach a level where you cant keep your pet alive.

    I though something like lev 100 is about impossible even with 16 chars and if you win you really deserve your title and artifact :)

    maybe they must make a book of records instead of a level limit and if you go over the first one (or level N if there is no first one), you earn a great prize :)
    (but the prize must come only when you die)

    This is called Horde Mode (Gears of War 2), or Firefight (Halo: ODST), or the much more recognizable Tower Defense (Starcraft/Defense Grid/any of a thousand million billion flash games).

    Not saying it's not a good idea, just not an original idea.

    doesnt matter if is original or not, the only important thing is that do not exist in UO and could be very fun :)
