The Event will start Monday June 1th, right after server up and last a week. http://stratics.com/community/threads/siege-battlefest-return-to-the-fun.339933/ The success of the event depend of you as player. And we will all need to help spread the word, maybe copy this text to an ingame book and drop copies ingame The goels for the event is: 1. Bring old Siege players back 2. Making new players try out Siege 3. Get rid of old hate, just for a week 4. Get players out of hiding 5. Make the players, PvP'ers as well as non PvP'ers dress up for PvP and not running in crap and die in 3 sec. 6. Remove dry looting and heavy looting for a week 7. Less use of cheap tactics to win on any cost 8. All in all, bringeing the fun back You may say, this is not possible, and maybe you are right, but let us try anyway. Here is the rules: The event will take place in special zones: - VvV Battle towns - Old Dungeons in Felucca - Termur /Abyss - The Sea - Around player shops Items you will need: - A light yellow round bag. In the bag, you pot something for the one who kill you to loot. it can be gold, gems, resources, magic stuff, potions or something else. - A book, where you write a short message to your killer and where he can sign with his name and maybe a message. I hope EC client do not mess up the books to much. The zones are places where a new battle will effect the way of looting. That include thief actions. The looting will work this way, each player carry a bag, light yellow, in the backpack, he place something in it for the winner to loot. Thieves can steal from this yellow bag and if they die, they will only lose their yellow bag What is in the bag is up to the players. If he die alot, he may only add something good once a day if he can't afford more. Don't use blessed deeds and checks unless you put a note in Yellow bag, telling you will hand it over when ressed. A PvM'er may use it as his loot bag, and if killed, the winner get all he looted from monsters. A Crafter may drop some crafted stuff in it, could be a suit with room for more imbuing, or anything else, he use to sell on his vendor. I'm sure a PvP'er can find something too or use a yellow bag he looted from someone else. If you kill someone, only loot his yellow bag and sign his book. As books are bugged, when using both EC and CC, always start on a new page and use short phrase in EC to make it readable for all. If you die, get a new yellow bag and enjoy next fight without having to replace your suit. I hope it will work and all will do their part to share the fun this week. See you on Siege Edited /Added: I would like to hear ideas for what to put in the yellow bag, what do you think about putting in yours, and what would love to find in in the yellow bag, when you kill someone. Keep in mind, not all are wealthy, so a guy, who only can afford cheap gear, may add less valuable to his yellow bag. The guy, who run in maxed out gear, may need to add better stuff to the bag. So lets get some ideas, I'm sure alot are unsecure, what would good stuff for the bag? Also keep in mind, blessed stuff do not stay in the bag, so if you want to add something like a community deed with resources, you need to place a book and tell, you will hand it over, when back after a res and tell the killer, he may grap something else on your body, to trade with, if he not trust your word. I had not yet considered what to add to my yellow bags, are going to pack several this weekend. I do believe, a nice jewelry, imbuing resources or maybe something laying in my treasure room using space. I know there are alot hate between some guilds and vs some players but if all will give it a chance, we could use this event as a break from the wars and the hate. I know, there are players who do not read the forums and may not see the ingame books I'm dropping. If someone want to help me find mailboxes to drop books in, just ask me and I will copy as many you need. I also believe it will have a good effect dropping a book in an enemy's mailbox, as the mailbox show senders name and that is a way to tell the enemy, you are going try making this work. A little help and Info about the yellow bag and book. I try to drop some around shops, banks and moongatet and the bag at Young Travelers Inn is set to anyone and will have some bags, so you only need to add reward for the killer. To the scribers on Siege, please make copies of the bags with books and help me get the word around and give bags to your friends.
