    'tis I think a Royal Ball at Castle British!

    So best get some nice clothes ready, haha!

    I think times are at the end of the FOF, in the evening, possibly eight o'clock GMT if I remember correctly?

    Dear Mr Plotter

    I find thy presumptions most accurate, pertaining to the aforementioned alluring armouredness of the pleasing Miss Polly. As such, I dain thee temporal leave to 'FIRE', or propel via other reasonable means, one of those new-fangled specimens of cupidity, at her. However, I herewith beseech thee to include withal, fine words befitting the sensitivities of her good self.

    Kindest Regards,

    Mr F

    Can anyone post a report of the event for the few Europa players who were not present?

    Thanks!

    Well I went but I'm afraid you wont get much of a report from me -

    The castle was full of respawning Hatreds which totally disrupted the whole thing as far as I was concerned. As a consequence it was also full of Fire, Poison and Energy Fields. There was the usual amount of spamming from a few immature attendees plus in some instances foul language.

    After 10 minmutes of this absolute chaos, enough was enough for me and I logged out.

    Yes it was a huge let down for myself and alot of other RP'ers. We dressed up all nice and was expecting a nice ball. Instead we find Hatred NPCs attacking everyone, people dropping EV's and fields everywhere and people spamming and shouting racist comments and stuff.
    This went on for about 20 minutes whilst two EM characters tryed to give speeches. Then Nathan Hawke finally appeared and took everyone off to Ilshenar for some PvM.

    I mean whats to point in arranging a ball and telling us to dress up nicely which alot of us did in normal clothes and then dragging us off to fight monsters in Ilshenar. None of -V- were equipped for battle, so we just went home and got drunk in cove instead.
    Why say its a Ball when its really a hunt?

    Sorry but it just really annoyed me and was a big let down.

    yes, was my feeling too. The whole event felt somehow uninspired. Chaos at the ball, then a bit of pvm because of the damsel in distress, after that a somewhat lengthy and repetative (this somehow starts to become my synonyme for UO) 'ceremony' where 5 necklaces were handed out to those that found keys in 5 demons, half an hout later these were up for sale on the rares forum ;)
    Rather pointless and not very funny. I really miss things like the candle of love (yes I know not a 'live' event, but 10 times more funny than sunday night)

    I thought that the ball and event was rather chaotic but on the whole as it was my first EM event and i was one of the lucky people to win the necklace, im very pleased!! And i wont be selling it either. :)

    congrats for winning a necklace :) Don't get me wrong, I have no problem either with items being given out nor that they are sold afterwards. After all that was what the whole event was about. Getting items.

    What I have a problem with is that I think a live event could be much more than just a special occassion for getting items. This can be done at champs, in Doom at ML Bosses all the time.
    What made me invest a few hours on sunday night was that I hoped it would be something the players of the shard could do together, to meet and chat and generally have fun with a kind of storyline to keep things going. The first bloodguard hunt, although a little chaotic as well, in that respect was considerably more fun and more relaxed than the event on sunday night.

    Sunday night was just like events used to be, and all in all I think, if that's what they are going to be it's just not worth the time.

    Well done Polly!!! I had connection problems darn it so could not log in and take part...oh well next time..

    I like the old global events because everyone gets to take part AND everyone by doing so gets the end reward too

    BUT hey im all for the new EM events as well as global ones ...as long as the EMs take make overpowering stuff and also try to give everyone the same chance of gaining items...like slaying deamons.. that aint gonna be a crafters cup of tea or low end warrior even....so top hitters win again?? Would also be nice if europa items were made so thay can only stay on europa... theres nothing worse than the 'hoppers' that just take part on every shard for pure greed....would be nice to see more europa players than chars uve never seen before ever??

    Just my thoughts...............

    Yes i agree with both of you. I think there is a lot of room for improvement, but i also think that it is better than nothing and fingers crossed they will come up with some good events in the near future! :)


    Mr P - Sorry to hear that you were not able to take part :sad4:
