Topic: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

Well M2S will be hosting daily, fun events to help keep everyone's boredom levels down as we await the new patches to come.

Several of us were bored today and came up with the idea to host fun events every day for the entire player base to do. And have these events give nice rewards to the winners.

If your like me, you've got 100+ million NIC, all the best named gear in the game, every bot in the game, and millions of ep... Ok, perhaps your not exactly like me, but you likely are finding yourself bored of mining, and grinding npcs to scrape together some more NIC over and over again.

That's why we're setting these events up, we want to help people stick around and have fun playing perpetuum between content patches.

Those of you that have participated in Nick's triva challenges know we give away nice prizes, but while the trivia events are fun, I felt we needed more events with gameplay elements.

M2S members are not allowed to participate in these events as contestants.

I've made a nice online calendar where all the events can be easily viewed before they happen days in advance. This should help prevent missing them. (Be sure to switch to "week" mode in the upper right to see the events better.)

Keep in mind this calendar lists the events in Central US time, I'm sorry there is no way to easily convert them to your time zone. However the website below will tell you the current time in Central US time, so you can calculate when they will happen for you.

If you have any great ideas for fun events that are relatively balanced for both exp. and new players, please post them below. We'd love to have more ideas.

UPDATE: I've setup the first event for this afternoon, this will test how many people are interested in participating in these events, if it's popular, then we'll try and setup at least 2 events a day, if not more.

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

i didnt wanna spread this into a second topic.
as discussed earlyer in help chat

i prepose a race, it will need 6-11 people to administrate the race to which euro-corp can supply 2-4 depending on the time

1 admin for the base to record who leaves first and who returns first
and 1 admin for every field container, the FCA's or field container admins take 1 random item (1 for every racer) and go to a place on that island where ever they choose, they then drop the conatiner and place 1 item in it, when that item is removed they place another, 1 for each racer, when a racer returns with all of the unique items  having gone to each FCA ,first he wins depending on how many racers we could have a 1,2,3rd place prize

as ECS doesnt have the industrial muscle M2S does we cant supply as nice treats as you guys can, but maybe a fully t2 named arbalast or a mech class termis or some crap like that could work ,( i figure around 5mil worth of stuf)

the FCA's would have to be impartial so they cant inform people whats in the containers and they just buy it, they will drop way points as to where the containers are and thats how the race will be done, the hard bit isnt how fast you go, but finding the fastest way, so all you path finders sign up


also due to logistics and nessary players needed i suggest this happen at about 8pm gmt next saturday thats about 2pm east coast time

some of the larger corps can prepose some other prizes if they wanna support the race,

also even tho this would take place on a non-pvp island the location of the FCA is his progrative , and thus can be outside a safe zone, or anywhere he sees fit, so fit for pvp

you know, atm there is no "outside save zone" on the "non-pvp islands". The police Tower on the starter Islands are just decoration until the DEVs find another solution to prevent a M2S-suizide-gankfest wink

about your race idea - what items would you suggest?

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

that i did not know, al though most of the euro corp syndicate is pvp orintated, we havent delved into that aspect of the game yet.

the items contained in the containers aren't important, the idea is they are like flags or keys, just proff that said racer has reached each container, when a racer turns up with each item and the FCA's have verafied he attended each container, they that is the winning result

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

oh and if you mean what itesm i would suggest for the prize, well that would depend on how many racers we get, no reason to put up 20mil of goods for 2 racers when it takes 6+ people to run the race,

maybe some nice named mods and *** like that

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

If you get an event with quite a few players, im sure we can help you out on the prizes. cool

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

euro-corp syndicate will offer a fully teir 2 fitted arbalast as well as 15 lvl 1 decoders for a prize

the arbalast has
teir 2 standard missile launcher
teir 2 named em-guns x 5
teir 2 named em-tunners x2
teir 2 thermal hardner,rep and armor plate x1
1k compisit rounds
1k chemical missiles

i have no idea how to advertise this to the community tho, as the forums arent very active

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

race is set for 20:00 gmt on saturday 7th
prizes will depend on turnout,
join "ec public" chat in game to talk to corp members about it

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

Yeah there just isn't enough players atm for these events. I'm waiting for the next patch to resume them.

Re: Perpetuum Daily Event Planner

Spend it on strippers and beer then, I'd be fine with that.
