The EM Meet & Greet/Question & Answer held in Felucca on April 2nd, started with a small crowd. Possible Felucca events discussed: PvP Tourneys Team Duels One on One Duels Last Man Standing Duels EM Faine Morgan: What I really want to know is IF we do those, can we wait to kill people until the event starts? If we give you an event to kill people at, the killing will have to be by the rules. Suggestion by William Wallace: If killing happens before the event start, that team is disqualified. Even if it were not PvP events directly, events involving a faction storyline would be fun. Possibly something like the SL event that incorporates factions and PvP. EM Laurana: We can certainly build fiction into tourneys, even if it isn’t a Live Dev Team sanctioned bit. EM Faine Morgan: We were thinking we could do some with pets, some without. I, for one, would like to host a chicken fight night. William Wallace: If it’s an event with pets, maybe limit the pet, similar to that in the Stuffy Dwagon contest. EM Faine Morgan: Guys, you need to understand something. If we do events in Fel, they’re open to everyone who wants to come and kill each other … within the event rules ...otherwise there’s not much point. EM Laurana: With that, does anybody else have any constructive feedback? SlimShan inquired: Were can we find out about the events? EM Laurana: The EM web site and the Stratics Origin Forums. Both will have event information. EM Faine Morgan: Also, I’m locking down lanterns in advance ... Yew Gate, for example. Unfortunately, the meeting became too unruly to continue. EM Faine Morgan: We constantly hear EMs don’t come to Fel … Fel doesn’t get any love … so we wanted to come and show you we wanted to try, therefore, it seemed to make sense to try to hold the meeting in Fel. EM Laurana: The behavior here tonite clearly shows why Fel is passed over in favor of Tram for events. EM Faine Morgan: Do you remember me saying we wanted to do events for EVERYONE? We meant Fel, too! This was to be an EVERYONE event. EM Laurana: But we do not have crowd control powers. EM Faine Morgan: We’ll see what we can work out for a Fel event, but I have to tell you honestly, if it goes like tonite, we won’t be able to keep them up. EM Laurana: I hereby conclude this meeting. This may have been your test run; the behavior here tonite has failed miserably. ---------------------------------- Comments from the EMs after the meeting: EM Laurana: The brief open forum disintegrated into turf wars. EM Faine Morgan: We constantly hear ‘The EMs don’t do anything for Fel. The EM’s ignore Fel. The devs ignore Fel.’ We wanted to do something for Fel here, but we will not do it for one guild. EM Laurana: If that’s how things run in Fel here, then things just won’t run in Fel. It has to be open to all. EM Faine Morgan: The good news is we are willing to try ONE event PvP related, and see how it goes. EM Laurana: EMs are just really just players. EM Faine Morgan: We do two forms of events. We assist in the storyline events, which are developer events. Then we are allowed to run smaller scale events for fun, and that’s really our goal -- FUN! EM Laurana: It’s not fun watching players be frustrated like tonite. There were certainly some players who tried to legitimately attend. Next time we want to MEET and TALK with the PvPrs they might have to bring a blue to Tram. EM Faine Morgan: We need to prove we can pull this (Fel events)off! ---------------------------------- Sara’s Note: What our EMs are looking for is constructive feedback as to what types of events you would like to have held in Felucca, and some suggestions as to how the events would be held and controlled (be it word of honor from guilds, etc). They are asking for your help and ideas. Keep in mind that EM Laurana and EM Faine Morgan do not have crowd control capabilities. If an event becomes too unruly to continue, all they can do is announce it is over and leave. One of the excuses heard about the proceedings at the meeting was directed at 'cross sharders'. There was NOTHING about this meeting that would have enticed a cross sharder to try attend. No uber rewards were to be given out ... not even sashes. It was a Question & Answer session. And, at EM-ran Felucca mini events, if they happen, the rewards will be things such as 'bragging rights', a plaque, etc. On that note, let’s try to keep this productive, and not turn this thread into a finger-pointing, accusation thread that will get locked. We can not change the past, but we can shape the future. Other shards have some great, well-attended Felucca events … Let’s get Origin on that list; after all, Origin is the biggest little shard in Britannia! If you have ideas, comments, etc. you would rather not post on a public forum, you may use the feedback form on the EM website.
