    My guess is, the perfect time. They've come home from work, said hi to their kids, had dinner and tea, and now they're ready for some EM fun....1pm eastern should be 7pm in London I believe.

    A large amount of Siege players are from Europe, so 1PM ET is 7PM UK , anything that is schedule late in the day for the America side is well into the early hours of the morning there. So its only fair to post something for both sides of the Ocean.

    I am happy he (EM Bennu) is doing something like this for the players of Siege. So many could not make the last event as it was well into the early hours there.

    Agreed. A bit too early for me, however, because my small kids are still awake at that time and my wife would kill me...

    Did not get one myself as I was discording it and resing and healing all the rest. It was fun to see blue and green together fighting one boss.

    Everyone did a great job of coming together. Lots of healers and archers. Pets and summons were not match.

    The em said from the start he would try to alternate between evenings for the US and earlier for the people overseas. That certain group was out in full force about six of them. The shard belongs to the siege players not just one group.

    Is he alternating every other 2 ?, because I'm pretty sure the last one was also around noon on a thursday, because I commented on that one too.

    I'll give a quick recap of event I hope all sides consider it fair but feel free to add your own perspectives:

    Almost as soon as the event started. Hi-5 took control with about 6-7 people. Eliminating most of the pvmers not associated with their group. A few managed to scout, stay hidden etc but for the most part it was Hi-5 controlling the area.

    Finally the last Monster appeared in Minax base where Hi-5 battled it but after awhile realized they couldn't kill it alone. They tried bagballing it, and luring it out of area but it appeared to be tethered to the base.

    Eventually members of Hi-5 had to log or simple got bored and left. Only Starr and his pets remained. A small group swooped and killed him to test if Hi-5 would return. When they did not, a group from Gilfane returned along with a few other people from the shard.

    While the main group focused on the Boss, a few people ran protection looking out for incoming raids. Starr returned a few times with his pets and attempted to raid but was unsuccessful. To his credit he raided out numbered as he was alone (beside his pets) and no other Hi-5 returned to help him.

    Eventually Starr stopped raiding and the entire group focused on the Boss, eventually defeating it.

    Great report, Lore! Thank you. I escaped through a moongate at one of the Malas Secret Locations to Gilfane Loothouse, when I faced Steve - like most of us. Then I decided to make food for the kids as the situation was to hectic for me.

    Thanks to Mr Sinister, who participted in the defeat of the end-boss, my museum has a new exhibit:

    Great job, Siege!

    P.S.: The timeframe this time was established for the EU-players, next time it will be for US-players again - alternating...

    :thumbsup: to Bennu for making an event on Siege that was a challenge to both sides
    The "good" side was not able to get near the mobs, to try to kill it, they could had needed a few more PvP'ers.
    The "evil" side successed taking over the event very easy but could not finish it without help from the good side. One beetle was not enough, they could had needed a few dragons.
    I'm sure both sides was very frustrated, one because they could not kill the Boss and one because they could not get near the Boss.

    I was a little on the side line as always, could not help the evil side as I was orange to them and would be a problem because of field spells and I had no reason to help the other side *Evil Grin*

    Dragons did not work to well either, it, the boss, was killing them far to easy, so everyone went old school, archers, meeleers, and discord bard for the win, who was also healing and rezing all that died, and there were several deaths by all that were fighting it as it sucked them in and bang instant death one hit, dead.

    Aye, I just happened to log in while this was going on, and quickly discovered that RC and dragons were useless. Archers were the way to go, with healers dedicated to them. @Drakelord I'm sorry you didn't get a drop. I think the only reason I got one was because I had attacked the boss previously before realizing that was fruitless and then switched to healing.

    Believe healing will give you right to a drop, but I could be wrong. I notist, when I did kill GD and Synbad was healing me, he got his part of the loot, even when he did not damage the GD.

    My favorite was when they said something like: "How are we supposed to do this? We don´t have our Atlantic suits." :sad2:
    And then they accused the EM of healing it up when they were trying to damage it.

    It´s amazing how quick they pull the cry card when things don´t go their way...

    @IanJames it ok, I would have just sold it off at the next auction for Siege gold. Making a super crafter and crafting/imbuing replace suits for Kimi and Zardo cost a lot on Siege, that is why I wish the 3x prices would go back to prodo shard prices. Then I would have a little more gold in the bank. Maybe I should put Kimi out on the street with a begging bowl, saying; ALMS FOR THE POOR. :Begging:
