~~~ Epic Factions/PVP Event Being Planned ~~~

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Guest, Feb 5, 2008.

  1. Jeremy i'd recommend going to the faction fourms! There's a lot of bugs and patches people would like to see happen to bring factions back to life on all shards

    A solution for the SL base is going to be a separate issue, and it won't be resolve by this coming publish, for instance. It may be that we add in teleporters that allow sigils to be carried through, or actually resolve the terrain problems later.

    The stairs are passable by live players. It is the common issue with ghosts not being able to walk up certain steps. If perhaps a ghost only teleporter (I think I remember such a thing existing) could be placed near the bottom it would allow players to exit and it prevent from becoming some type of tactic for live players to exit the potential choke point.

    As far as the docks on Napa, have you tried the south entrance? It's gated in Fel, but one portcullis is open (the far north one).

    [/ QUOTE ]

    I'm not sure we're talking about the same portcullis, Draconi. When I get home, I'll make some screen shots and put them on the Faction Forum for you to look at.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Draconi, it looks like the portcullis that was in the wall south of the fishing guild building on Napa is gone, so there's a way into the docks now.

    Also, everyone who participates and decides they have an opinion or observation about factions, by all means send me feedback - this will be a great chance to get a nice high volume of data from some people who aren't as entrenched.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Jeremy, I'm going to say this as nicely as I can, but does your statement above mean that you normally don't pay any attention to what the "faction diehards" have to say? If yes, that's quite a blow.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    I think what Jeremy was after was VOLUME.

    If a whole bunch of just that normally don't play factions show up and give our opinions. It suddenly gives her a wealth of information, about not just whats broke with factions (which she can get from the forums) but what would attract more people to play factions (which isn't so much, since people who don't normally play.. well don't normally play [​IMG]

    It'll make it easier for her to see trends that way and keep track.

    Do i have the right Jeremy?

    I am quite stoked about this. I will even drag my set in my ways self over to Atlantic *shudders* to participate. No offence Atlanteans, I feel pretty much the same about any shard that is not Siege. *nods* I wonder if I remember how to build a character on a regular shard...

    Guest Guest

    Two more guilds have signed up for the event representing 607 veteran characters total and over 200 players. Negotiations are ongoing with the second largest Atlantic guild to secure their participation.

    Also, if anyone wants to spread news it is easy now just link people to www.hot-guild.com/faction.

    If stuff gets storted properly our guild will most likely do this. We will try to convince a few other guilds to join us.

    And we dont play yank shards usually.

    Don't do it Kelmo! It'll hurt!

    I have some characters on Atlantic from years past, I might hop in too...just to see if it really happens.

    Jc Sounds like a fun plan.. However..... I think your going to get bit hard by the code that attempts to keep the # of players in each faction about the same.. Its been flawed and broken for years..

    Caveat: I haven't played in a couple years so maybe they disabled this.. Then again..

    The major guilds will all split up into different factions to make things as fair as possible. At least 3 factions will be filled with players, probably 4.

    am i the only one who's nipples are getting hard with the thought of this event?

    [​IMG]

    and Kelmo, i think Tina has PMed you, but drop me a line if you need a hand or want to jump in with us there.

    its unfortunate that we allready took over ATL and have moved on to other shards, not some of our manpower will have to x-shard BACK to atl for the event.

    at any rate, we are tweaked and ready for the fun!

    oh, this is gonna be like the old days!
    rivers of OJ's, rivers of blood!!!!

    Dig, are you at least CONSIDERING a return? (Ran into your namesake on Baja again a week or so ago and once again was disappointed it wasn't you.) Am wondering about Gilthas too.... If you guys are thinking about it and need any help on Atlantic, just let me know and I'll do whatever I can for you.

    Think of it as research kelmo [​IMG] ye the student and the professor of same experience all at once. soooooooooooooooooooooooooo if ya do not remember HOW TO on a reg. shard lemme know when ya make said chr. there. I will teach ya how to begin ye chr. on a non Siege shard. Tis really quite simple...I will even drag ye to felucca as a newbie just to get ye pk'd so ya feel at home or whatever. . . *laughs*

    YOU know ya wanna see this and participate and learn and more, even if ye chr still sucketh soooooooooooooo what ? It is not perma ya know, think of it all as a factions, shards cross cultural experiancial mega sized, think tank pvping factions exchange... like being a foreign exchange student in a new nation on a 'sports' scholarship. [​IMG] YOU CAN DO THIS, for the greater cause and glory..for factions in general.... yessssssssssssssss ye can do this.

    Oh I agree there will be plenty of fights outside of guardzone, would just be a shame if people abused the fact we were unable to cross heal.

    Anyway, it seems pretty likely that we will be transfering to give this a try, just need to get cash together to get tokens, hopefully bring some more European players with us.

  21. This sounds great and all but its on the wrong shard.
    Half of the problems people are bringing up would be resolved if this was done on Siege. We don't have trammel. We also have active faction guilds already.

    I understand that this event can be attended by masses easily with character transfers, which is not possible to/from siege... but this just makes me wonder why you people don't just play siege in the first place?

    If there is one good testbed for factions, its on siege. Hopefully with our little push to have rot changed, this will make more people willing to give siege a shot...

    So... if you like the idea behind this event, and you like the event after it happens- come to siege!!!

    Well, I suppose I'll have to update my old characters from Chessy some, and then transfer them to atlantic. This event could be the start of some great things, if it pulls through with lots of people!

    I'm having teleporters created in Trinsic and Magincia to facilitate travel. Unlike the boat versions, these will go from one piece of solid terrain to another, circumventing problems with ghosts on top of dynamic objects like you brought up.

    The moongate to Magincia will still, however, be disabled for the foreseeable future.

    I would expect the teleporters to be available tomorrow.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Draconi, this sounds great. Can you please please also take a look at the Trinsic dock area on Napa? I looked at it a few weeks ago and could not figure out how to get to the docks. I was on a new character that had no magery and no funds, so I didn't get a chance to see if you can get to the docks by teleporting from another part of Trinsic into that area (shadow jumping didn't work) and couldn't afford a boat. Just trying to walk in did not work because the wall west of the dock area is completely solid where it has entrances on the other shards. Trying to walk in through the stable and inn also didn't work.

    And have you had any chance to come up with another solution for getting out of the SL base as a ghost? Could you possibly replace the staircase at the south end with a ramp?

    Thanks.

    Drac - there is no problem with sigils coming out of the SL base. It's only ghosts that can't get out.

    How is ganking even more overpowered on siege? Everyone has a personal bless they can use on any item they choose?

    Bonding... I agree its lame but as for the others...

    i can test it out with a newb char i guess. i dont know how exactly leaving the base when dead thing works as i havent been there in a long time. But on mag docks, you kind of walked into the actual step instead of up it. Then opened paperdoll and your char would jump up onto the step instead of beeing inside it if you know what i mean.

    I need faction screenshots, preferably ones with lots of fighting or just standing around in a large group. They need to be Pre-AOS which is why I am having such difficulty finding any. If anyone has some good or decent ones please throw them up on a host such as Imageshack and PM me the links. I would like to have them by Noon tomorrow.

    I don't think people are getting the fact that a lot of people are reactivating their accounts for this... or how many people would love to play this game, if it wasn't soo messed up with trammy crap and bugs. If this game was well polished... hell yeah people would come back.

    The most updated list can be found on the main event information page. Right now over 600 veteran characters (at least 1 GM skill) representing hundreds of players have signed up. And that number is expected to continue growing.

    To make everything fair and for a lag fest being planed, im not wasteing 23 million transfering there and transfering back home. I am willing to create a charactor on atl, with the following stipulation, you scroll my guy out, on the skills he is going to have for the war, after all it is to have fun AND you want everything FAIR right?


    Im sure HOT would not mind takeing the ones who are working up the charactors to spawns and then letting everyone who has the new chars there scrolling up

    We can make 110 scrolls available for anyone who wants them. We only keep the 110 Magerys now anyway. I will also look into setting up a vendor which will sell them for 1,000 each or something.
