Title: Event June 15th 2014
Post by: Mordecai The Fox on June 10, 2014, 11:30:51 PM
I think I have this sucker figured out.  Here's what I propose.  The event is a hostage rescue.  A large group of bandits have taken hostages.  (Checking to see if 2yy/Mike want to be hostages as well). 

Your job if you chose to accept it is to rescue the hostages from their captives and take them from the enemy base which will be located on the map and transport them to Skalisty Island.  If you accidently shoot a hostage you are disqualified.  This is a hostage rescue after all!  Check your aim.  Your job is to rescue them, not eliminate them.  For the team or person who ends up rescuing a hostage you will get an option upon returning the hostages to Skalisty Island.

You can choose between a special vehicle that doesn't spawn on the map at all with a key to match to keep it locked up safe.  Or....your hostage joins your team on the next full reboot or a time that works for both parties involved.  Before you dismiss this particular choice you have the choice of the following hostage teammates for the full 3-4 hour server up time.

1. The Medic - The medic is special in that he will not carry a single weapon.  However, the flip side is this particular guy can take a lot of punishment even under heavy fire.  Even if the bullets keep hitting him he refuses to go down.  He carries a ton of medical gear to keep you and your team alive and well as long as you have bullets to throw down range he has medical gear to keep your blood up.

2. The Scout - As the name implies this guy is all about recon and knowledge.  He carries a sniper rifle to help support your team in the field, however, unlike the medic he is like your average every day survivor.  He can't take the same punishment the medic can. The flip side is he has a sixth sense on enemy locations and will readily give that information to you so you don't walk into an ambush. He can even tell you which way the enemy is facing or if they're moving at a known location.

3.  The Heavy - This one is your heavy support soldier.  He can't see where enemies are like the scout or carry a ton of medical supplies and take a lot of damage like the doctor.  However, what he lacks in those two departments he makes up for in heavy firepower.  When normal survivors and bandits would run out of ammo he just seems to have one more mag in his bag.  He unleashes tons of rounds down range to keep the bandits and zombies busy while your team and move freely.  Plus, due to his training he doesn't seem to suffer from weight load meaning if it fits in his bag he can carry it and move without worries of passing out. 

The roles above would be played by an admin...either myself, 2yy, or Mike for the full 4 hour run.  There is one catch to this particular reward, none of those roles will fire at other players UNLESS fired upon.  Meaning they will only RETURN fire and not engage players unless forced to defend themselves.  Also, should the scout or heavy die that doesn't mean the end of it.  You can always pick them back up and resume your normal operations.  It's a check and balance for each role and what they bring to the table.

Well, what do you think guys?  Any questions?  Do you like the idea?  Or do you have suggestions?  I'm all ears.

Am going to send a forum announcement to all with a link to this thread... but if there's no reply, I don't think we'll be having an event :S

Events are a lot of work for admins folks but we're REALLY happy to do them if people want em!

BUT if no one posts, seems like no one is really that bothered... Soooooo it's up to you :D Want an event? Please post asap here!

I would like for the event to be another day, because father's day is on Sunday.

Hmm.  Bradley brings up a good point.  Father's Day is on Sunday.  I always handle that a day earlier than most people to avoid the crowds.  Perhaps we should push it off until the following weekend so there isn't a holiday going on.

If I did it today it would have to be much later this evening.  I'm taking my father out for dinner this evening.  So, I won't be back probably until 5:00 or 6:00 P.M. my time.  I doubt Mike will be around by then though.
Title: Re: Event June 15th 2014
Post by: Mike on June 14, 2014, 07:18:42 PM
Nope :( I won't be around then :(

That said - it can happen without me if there's enough admin support, but equally if not could leave till next week... I'm 100% cool with either :)

Hmm.  We can do our own mini fun event tomorrow.  I'll talk it over with 2yy and see if he is available.  If not, I will see when the server restarts are and pick a good time.  We can pick a single 'special hostage' from the list and place him somewhere on the server.  Whoever gets to him and rescues him gets him for the remaining time on the server restart.  Just for kicks.  We'll do the full blown even next Sunday.

Post by: Mordecai The Fox on June 15, 2014, 03:12:42 PM
Allright.  This won't be a normal full event like we usually do but in case anyone is on at 3:00 P.M. EST (Which should be the start of a server restart) there will be a random special hostage who will need to be picked up on the map.  Whom ever ends up picking him up first gets his help for the rest of the server up time.  You'll know it's a special survivor based on the name "Code Name _____" then whatever their code name is after.  It will be one of the three special hostages for the event coming up next weekend.  Consider this a trial run to see how this idea works.  Again, no special bases on this one or anything just whom ever ends up picking the hostage up gets him.

Well...I planned on doing the mini event.  I can't get back on the normal server.  Keeps kicking me due to namalsk stuff.  I've uninstalled that as well to see if that fixes it.  =/ As soon as I get the damn thing up and going I will join the server.

I vote for next weekend.  I will be able to make arrangements with the wife to be on during the day and I can participate. 
I had discussed a hostage event with 2yys and mike breifly, but it was going to be one of the admins takes hostages, and players rescue them.  I think I like your idea better.

I also had an idea for admins to take over the AI base on Panthera.  There would be a few admin tools they can use, but not many, and not god mode.  Maybe buff the HP and damage a bit to make it hard, but nothing over the top. :)

Post by: Mike on June 15, 2014, 10:08:26 PM
There will be BOTH :D

An event in 15mins (a small one for those that can make it!) AND a full event next weekend too :D

15 min notice for anyone wanting to go to the event! (Chernarus server, event is being run by admin: Mordecai)



So is there an event today?
