    Hey guys, got a suggestion for a possible event reward item. This is purely cosmetic etc.

    But what about....

    Glasses of the Night?

    They would override night sight ability in elves, and allow them to enjoy the lights of the towns at night, or someones lighting in thier decor?

    Opinions?

    From the last EM social, word is that there will not be any more EM rewards. The prizes are now "Plaques" with the winner's names on them.

    Oh yes, no further rewards will be handed out. That would involve such diabolical concepts as "competition" and "uncertainty". We would also have these things called "winners" and "losers" which surely have no place in an online game, or any game come to that.

    You can thank those nice whiners on the production shards for bringing all this to the attention of our developers and the said developers for doing away with these repugnant items of discord.

    But all is not lost comrades! From now on EVERYONE who attends the events will get an item! It will be the same item across all shards, brothers, although I believe each shard will be able to name and colour it differently! Woohoo! So no longer will the bourgeoisie members of the Siege community be able to run off with all the spoils. We are all equal now, the true Siege way!

    For everyone's information, the decision was based on UHall posts. So remember kids, the loud and annoying people get their way. The meek shall inherit what they're given.

    I may be wrong, but I've a feeling their decision may also have been influenced by the lack of 'I won a prize I'm proud to have' and excess of 'how much can I sell it for and how quickly'

    I don't know about the Dev's, but it feels a bit like spending several hours trying to choose just the right Christmas present for someone only to find they put it on Ebay on Boxing day.

    I didn't log the EM social, I was busy looking for stealables, but Quantum said something to the effect of "The players on Stratics have spoken."

    You may still be correct. Between the "everyone should get a gift" and the sore loser crowds, a locked down plaque somewhere in towns is a lousy compromise.
