    To EMDrosselmeyer,

    I wish to thank you for your efforts in running the Event: In Search of Shathenth
    This event last Sunday was mostly ran with careful restraint by the players who played.

    But, what is careful restraint? The idea was not to start unnecessary fights among the players. This means that no one should start a fight, or steal from players. There were certain failures which apparently did started fights among mostly faction groups.

    The main occurrence was the use of EV’s and Faction owned weapons baring Hit Area effects.

    My personal history then and there was upon dying six times by Chewy that the gloves came off and I switched to attacking anyone who previously attacked me. I did this as self-defense and revenge. The only other action of choice was to leave the Event. Why should I let anyone force me from the Event?

    It is my understanding there will be a third part for In Search of Shathenth. I must tell you I expect nothing less than a re-occurrences of player behaviors. I advise you to not limit player choices, and to do your best without regards to player behaviors.

    I warn you that careful restraint is gone! I have change my template and equipment.

    You Gettum Yaha,

    Everyone gloated at getting 2-4 items, I didn't get anything. Course my EA dollar is as of much value as yours right. And again TY for the EM's taking that special nudge at forcing EVERY thief onto the player, when before they took 1/2 the heat fighting for ACTUAL steal made items in the EM packs.

    There isn't the fault of the EM. EM Drosselmeyer is doing a great job considering the limitations and small numbers of Siege.

    Events held in Felucca will always come with risks. I accept that. I know there will be thieves and player corpse looters. I know I will probably get hit by other players, accident or not, which I accept.

    My point is, the EM is there to tell a story and thats all.

    The rest is up to the players to sort out.

    I'm sorry you didn't get any items, but I remember you turning up half way (or later) through.

    And your point about the EM forcing every thief onto the player is incorrect. You will remember that the DEVs made a change to stop EMs backpacks being stolen from (that ended up effecting pack horses a few weeks back). You can check the patch notes.

    I intended to come and kill everyone near the end, or rob them blind, depending on my mood at the time, but ended up having work to do :/

    I should be able to make the next one.

    You didnt get any items because of a simple statement tthat EM drosselmeyer made DURING the event and i quote "There are still event items sitting on corpses that just turned public! Lots of them!"

    There was plenty of items for all. Of course like any event others will be more focused on looting then killing and the rest the exact opposite. Me I made a deal with some of the others to party with them and loot thier kills. this way they could focus on killing and i could kill/loot. In the end i was able to secure a set for each of us.

    Then on top of this we had to contend with the return of diablo and his father who showed up in time to dry loot everyone that died. And yes diablo got a sash.

    For those who did not get loot im sorry. Keep in mind that the loot items will nearly always be on the corpses of the monsters, there is a wait timer if you didnt not do enough damage. and check all corpses as they turn public. This was how i was able to get me and another a full set.

    Please dont complain about dieing at the event. He had mentioned before this would be a intense fight. With our felluca ruleset you can expect to take damage from other factions. This is your choice to be in factions and by going to events you know the risks. Next time expect this. Ive spoke to a bunch of the people there. Yaha your deaths were not intentional Chewy had just not thought about the AoE his weapon did. If you exact revenge expect the next part of the event to be a bloody mess.

    As for this event i salute you drosslemeyer you always seem to hit a home run for us. Thanks

    Honestly still want the red one as the reason behind the colors was so that everyone would be able to find one they liked. I believe this is why he asked ahead of time before the event started what colors people liked.

    We were able to obtain two blue ones. But am still willing to trade a blue for a red!

    Ah, got the impression from your other post is that you had the complete sets now.

    I wasn't there for the colour choice thing :(
