    EM Drops > RP Events :(

    Seems crybabies always get what they want. I can only hope that D&D will slow down the em drops and extend out the RP and make them suffer on Chessy

    Because they always have to get their way, they were pissed off because they did not bother to pay attention to the event or left early so they missed out their precious items so they decide if they cant have fun neither can we.

    I think my 4th grade class is more mature at this point.

    If your EM's started only making clicky items it would solve everyone's issues....spawn a clicky at the beginning of the event, all the rares collectors will take the item, stay if they want, leave if they want, there would be no accusations of secrets or favoritism because everyone would get the item if they show up on time, and they wouldnt be worth alot since there would be tons. Then you can all have fun with your RP event without being bothered by the people who only go for items.

    Seems like it would be a solution worth considering. :)

    Personally I would rather they just remove all EM drops and there would be no issues what so ever. Why reward them by making it even easier, ya know? They have more gold than they can ever spend but if they don't get their way, look out.

    A solution worth considering is publishing the rules EMs were following and apply them equally to all the shards for the benefit of all the players. I can only hope that @Kyronix isn't idly sitting by while a system he simply made amazing gets torn asunder by people who refused to contribute to the core of the system. I hate to be "that guy" but my subscription is up in March and I will have to seriously consider if it's worth even logging into the account management site.

    Holly Bloodhand couldn't suppress a grin as she peered through her spyglass at Pitmuck, just on the horizon. Her ruse seemed to have been successful... the goblins were lowering their defenses. Once again, they'd all played right into her hands.

    She'd had to adjust her tactics, certainly, when word of a Pitmuck pinworm outbreak had sent most of her human crews tucking tail and running like a pack of craven cowards. But Holly was clever and adaptable. They'd never see her new army coming. And what a bizarre army it was...

    (EVENT IS STILL ON! Come help defend Pitmuck on Saturday, Feb 7th at 8PM EST!)

    I fail to understand how those whiners not having enough drops to fill their thirst for rares all of a sudden prevents the EMs from giving a little help for city / player run events.. Has their availability been diminished ? Has their timeframe been squeezed so much that they cant spare a few minutes locking items down for events, and all that, just because a bunch of greedy cross sharders whined ??

    I can't believe I am doing this because I can certainly tell I am not welcomed here...

    However, I will make my case without trying to cause an up roar.

    It was never about the item drops, or atleast from my end of it. I couldn't care less if I received an item or not. I attend Chessy player and EM events. I LOVE to roleplay. My problem was only that on all shards, EM's have declined on helping players at their player events. I felt that if it were a law for EM's not to help player events, than it should be enforced.

    Not once was this about EM Event Items. Whenever I brought up event items in my argument, it was just a mere gesture to prove another point. I admit, I'm one of these cross sharders that have been labled a bad name because of the few bad ones. However, as a roleplayer myself, whenever I asked our EM on Atlantic for help with MY OWN player event for the whole shard of Atlantic, I was turned down by EM Bennu and Mesanna herself.

    My anger wasn't with any of you or EM's D&D. It was at the system as a whole. I felt truly hurt because I couldn't get the same treatment as the players of Chessy does. I was told No repeatedly by EM and Mesanna. So I had to work with what I was given as a player to do events. I've done player events for over 5 years and not once have I ever had the help from an EM.

    I agree, I would love to see EM's be able to help players at player events. It would make the player events more fun and entertaining to have a creature spawned or something like that. However, if a system allows it on one server but not the rest, than that is REALLY unfair for all the rest of the roleplayers on other shards. And once again, I was told by MESANNA herself that EM's aren't allowed to help with player events.

    Take this for what it is or bash me in again. I come as a player wanting to better this game and the fairness of it. I don't come as a player meaning to cause havoc or mess up people's fun. My argument standpoint was never about the Event Item drops. It was about the fairness and equality of a system.

    I won't post anymore because a few members of the community have already told me personally that I am not welcome on the shard of Chessy because I voiced my opinion. So... good luck.

    @Alexander of ATL. , I appreciate your words. And you are always welcome on Chessie. What matters to us is that folks respect each other, and the EMs, regardless of which server we call home.

    Sad to say, many of us (I include myself here) who collect rares have behaved quite badly at Chessie events, as well as on other servers (Oceania has similar feelings). It's only a small number of players, but their impact is magnified by the number of characters each runs at events, and the constant flapping and blocking wings of their gargoyles and greater dragons. This has tarred all who play events on other servers than home with a deserved dislike by the local populations.

    When an EM has to stop an event in the middle, and break RP, because behaviours are out of control, it should be a caution to us. When this happens repeatedly, we should not be surprised at the poor welcome we receive. Happily, at least, I don't think I've ever witnessed anyone on Chessie being attacked at an event simply for being there, only when that person's poor behaviour has broken the norms. Unlike in RL, there's little people can do when social norms are broken other than to voice their objections.

    I understand your feelings regarding this event on Chessie. I simply disagree that the solution is to then bar Chessie's EMs from doing what they're doing. I've seen EMs on other shards help out at player events. Imho, the answer is far closer to what you suggest - not making all the other shards' EMs stop, but to get Bennu to start helping on Atlantic, or else to add more EMs to Atlantic to help cover the workload.

    Can we not derail an event thread please? There will not be any special EM monsters at this event.

    You are welcome to come to this event, and any and all publicly posted Chesapeake events.

    Instead of working towards having EM's do the same on all shards for the better of the players and player events, it is has now been shut down. Thank you to all of the players that whined and moaned about its not fair instead of working together to see if we could as a group make it happen on the other shards that it was not happening on. It is over, time to move.

    This event is taking place WITHOUT EM HELP at 8pm tonight. ALL ARE WELCOME to meet the rest of the Chessy players at the Vesper Auction house. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THESE ARE NORMAL SPAWN FOUND THROUGHOUT SOSARIA WITH NORMAL LOOT. This has run its course.
