EULA + 100% COMMUNITY SUPPORTED EVENTS REWARD SYSTEM:

Postby Fallenseraph » Wed Aug 17, 2016 3:52 am

First.

This might be a good time for some events-related terms of service:


_________________________________________________________________________


TR EVENTS EULA:


* Staff reserves the right to use the players communication channels to publish their events and to keep interested parties up to date.

* Community wide events are made in an attempt to please the most or at least to please some, not just to please your case.

* The inability to appreciate a community event implies in your right to ignore it - Not in your right to disturb it.

* Staff will not immediately take your tickets in the middle of an event just because you finally noticed that staff is online. Please, wait like everyone else.

* Intentional attempts at disrupting staff's ability to deal with an event by means of consecutive spam-like whispers will not make staff put you on ignore, as a GM is not allowed to ignore a player. instead it will lead you to a mute.

__________________________________________________________________________


GENERAL GUIDELINES :

Please type /join Events to join the Events channel, as events-related broadcasts will not be done in Global chat anymore.

Please check these forums if you have questions about events or if you simply want to read about them, before asking a GM.

Friday was elected Events Day by the majority of players so far. Instead of spreading events through the week, We will offer an events Marathon on Friday. Exact start time and exact marathon schedule is still being determined, but expect an offer of every event we ran so far, plus a new one every week. We plan on having a break between event offers, and to encourage players to que for a BG together while they wait. These breaks are important for the players and GMs sanity, for bio breaks, for us to account vouchers, and a good opportunity to do multiplayer content that could benefit of player gatherings.

UPDATE: Poll winner day is now saturday. Until we have a definite answer, iwill run events on Fridays as before and offer replays on Saturdays.

I will log in earlier and take every ticket I can before starting the marathon. During it, however, I will only take tickets during an events break, if i am not busy preparing for the next or doing vouchers.

Now, what you guys came for.



A rewards system for the TR Friday events, 100 % supported by TR players, without a single dime or .add item from any GM.

***WHAT DOES A GM GIVE/SPAWN IN THIS?

Nothing but pointing who deserves a reward. The gm will pay for a letter sent by mail ( few coppers from his own pocket) and that letter is used as a voucher after a hard copy is made by the awarded player.

***WHO PAYS FOR THIS?

The community does. Two agents are selected every week (Unless they opt for staying as agents) , one from alliance and one for horde. Conditions are: being trustworthy players, having alt space / bank space to spare and crafting skills to help crafting or gathering the prizes. The rest of the community gets announced who their agents are with almost one week prior warning and are free to donate to those two players via mail system, giving any item or coin that might help.


***HOW IT WORKS?

At end of an event, the player deserving a reward because of the event will receive a game mail letter from a GM. The format will be something like this.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

(date , time)

" This voucher is good to redeem for one (participation?? / victory?? ) award pack , for the event ( Event name ) , to the player (Character name ) , to be redeemed to this weeks ( faction ) Rewards agent, ( Agent name ).

Signed, (Gm name )

____________________________________________________________________________________________


The received letter can not be edited.

The player will then make a hard copy of it (turning it into a white item called "Plain letter" which displays the original unedited text when right clicked ).

The player will then contact the Events Representative Player for his faction (The Rewards Agent mentioned in the letter for that given week), who will probably be broadcasting about it in faction global chat every hour or so if he is online about these vouchers. By meeting the Agent, the player may trade him the voucher ( to be destroyed by the agent ) in exchange for his reward ( which is something fit to the characters level, class, spec, or profession, OR to the theme of the event, limited by availability, according to what rewards the agent worked to create or gather, for that week ). Rewards are given at the Agents discretion without ANY intervention of the GMs.

After events and rewards distribution, agents may opt to stay or new agents are selected to let more players participate in the event rewards system and / or broader variety of reward types.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________


CONS :

This system is slower than when a GM simply gives the rewards ( but we were not giving anything anyway )


PROS:

* Resurrection of the rewards system
* 100 % free of item spawning.
* 99.9 % free of staff support.
* Blizzlike - Similar community efforts were done in retail.
* Increased community interaction.
* Increased activity - Supporting the events reward system, with or without donations to the agents, will generate more runs, more gathering, more crafting, more silver rare hunts, more BOEs, more playing.



Please let us know what you think

Event reward agents:

Alliance: Yibbi (Spelling?)

Horde: Sylon (Alt of Azshka)

Vouchers agreed upon for this week : Minimum of 3. (per side)

Remember, many events have non-item rewards that are not related to reward agents. Panda tournaments give you a trophy panda at your capital (taken from the prior champion) and wPvP gives you the chance for a waterfall of HKs, plus winner faction will now have a say on the layout, zone and bosses for the next wPvP battle.

Turn in any vouchers you may get via mail to them, using a polite message linking your voucher(S) for confirmation and then setting up a meeting. The agent will meet you (You go to them, unless you cant and they agree to go to you) and then trade your voucher ( you must give it to them for them to check the text first) for your reward. Your reward is given at the Agents discretion, considering availability (What they prepared, how much is left) and your class/spec/race/prof/level etc, and if possible, the event theme.

Remember, agents are volunteers too, just like GMs. Be polite when exchanging your voucher, be patient, and be thankful for whatever reward you may get - Prior to this system, you would be getting absolutely "nothing."

Staff/GMs have no interaction or say in the rewards crafting, donating, or gathering. There is no check or comparison in the value of a faction rewards to the other, but reward agents are put in contact with each other when possible to make things fair if they want to. The only common accord is the number of vouchers per side.

Another idea: WPvP events (HKs, completed objectives) count for double honor, like bg weekends....this might increase attendance!

UPDATE:

Azshka decided to remain as Horde rewards agent for another week (Mail any donations you might want to make to the rewards system to his alt, Sylon )

Let us all thank Yibbi / Yibby for his work as Alliance rewards agent for the first week. If you have any vouchers to be redeemed to him, you may still do so. If you mail the voucher to him, he will check it and then mail you your reward.
Yibby decided to step down from the job and pass on the torch. The new Alliance rewards agent for this week is Peltmiser. You may mail any donations you might want to make to the Alliance rewards effort to his alt, PRIZES.

Have fun and see you guys on the next Events Friday !!!!!

Sept 02 - WPVP!

Postby Fallenseraph » Tue Aug 30, 2016 11:23 pm

Friday September 02, 2016

Horde Agent:

Azshka (I think he really likes it!) Send any donations please to his alt, Sylon.

Aliance Agent:

Peltmiser has decided to step down from service. Bradonja will take this place for this week's Alliance Events Reward Agent. Please send any donations to the program to Bradonja.

PLANS:

I talked to the agents and to a few players (lots of them, inside a raid) and it seems that most agree to switch back and forth between new player themed Fridays and normal Fridays.
This week we are thinking of returning to the roots of the system and engaging into World PVP.

There will be no dks. We tested. Screens of the new Battle zones at the end of this message.

Please warn your friends !!!!!



SCHEDULE:

We are to start main event about 8 pm server time.

SCREENSHOTS:

LOW ATTENDANCE BATTLE ZONE: Forlorn Ridge (Alliance and Horde Mines)



MID ATTENDANCE BATTLE ZONE: Ashenvale versus The Barrens (Silverwing sentinels and Warsong Outriders Camps)



HIGH ATTENDANCE BATTLE ZONE: Alterac Mountains ( Stormpike and Frostwolf Tunnels )




Thanks to Peltmiser for the modeling.




UPDATE:

This Fridays events Marathon is over and the proper vouchers were sent to alliance and horde players.

If you did not get your voucher yet, message FallenSeraph about it. (I hope you took your SS when I asked you to!)


This week the new events were:

Jintalor Egg Hunt : (The first team to bring an hypogryph egg (Not the quest one XD) from a location high atop the troll city of Hinterlands down and back to the GM won the round. The Alliance Forces won the round.

Eastern Plaguelands Blood Hunt: The team to collect the most blood from the fallen at the Eastern Plaguelands Towers in the allotted time won the round. Victory of the Alliance forces. ( REMINDER: drop the blood spawn by 1/3 )


Returning Events were:

World PVP (TM x SS Redux) The battle took place @ Forlorn Ridge Mines, between Sylvanas and Jaina. The Horde kited jaina formidably away to their base, but meanwhile the Alliance Zerged on the Banshee Queen and defeated her first.

Improvised Events:

Karazhan Crypts Skirmish: The Allied Forces won. (Reminder: Do not use the deep room past the water as spawn base anymore)


SCORE TALLY: Alliance 4 x Horde 0


Thank you everyone who participated and I hope to see you guys again next week.

Please redeem your vouchers at your Agents and remember to vote for TR when you have time. (Links in the forums)


Have fun in TR!!

Fridays Race and Ring of Valor

Postby Fallenseraph » Sat Sep 24, 2016 2:54 am

Friday, September 23th, 2016

Events Day !

1) MOUNTED ROAD RACE: (HORDE version) Today we got even and gave the horde the same race the Alliance sampled before. No mount limits, no gear limits, no item limits, no level limits, a dash for the fastest among the fastest. First Place Nickje, second place Tercius (Impressive if you consider he died!!!!) , third place Larskiperse (spelling??) . Myang, the Hare beaten by the Turtles, didnt really cross the line.

As planned before, we used this as a Horde gathering event for ....................

The First Ring of valor Game, the Crate fasthanding team Mode battle !

I already posted this in the events compilation, but I will post it again here. Feel free to add your thoughts, as this is a work in progress. I will add results at the end :

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

RING OF VALOR - CRATE FASTHAND : (team mode)

The first of the Ring of Valor games.

If you didn't know, the Ring of valor is an arena inside Orgrimmar northeastern sector, sealed off by an invisible barrier and accessible only with GM powers.

The place does not have arena zone rules (Gurubashi, Dire Maul) and being inside a capital it does not allow for duels, do despite its fine barrier and layout, it only allows for pve and faction versus faction games.


In this simple game, an alliance and horde teams were spawned on both entry hubs of the ring, and a crate at the flag by the center. The crate is a customized Stratholme Supplies Crate ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?object=181085 ) , set on purpose to respawn every 10-25 seconds and to loot for 1-4 vials of Stratholme Holy Water ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=13180 , max stack = 50 ) .

Prior to the game start, players are stripped of any strat holy water stashed in bags. So we advise you to bank yours as you will be checked by a GM.

As the game starts, both teams are allowed to race for the holy water crate, or for each other.

At the end of the time limit (prototype run.... we used 30 minutes with time freezing for event maintenance on wipes), the team who shows the most Strat Holy Water won.

SUB RULES:

As in Any TR /FS event, please dont release if you die. Releasing will make returning you to the game harder and slower. If you die, lay down, send the GM one msg asking for a rev. In this particular game, put an A or H on the side of your rev request so the GM will know in which faction "safe" hub to revive you at. Like this: (Fallen: -"Rev (A)" ). Remember that reviving before end of a fight may just spell a second death, might be better to rev as a team.

Revives during* match are given / conceded at the GM discretion but know that for every combat revive conceded to your side, one will be conceded to the enemy side, requested or not till they are even in the GM´s math.

If a side wipes (leaving the other side free to loot the crate!) the GM will go to their "safe" hub, raidwarp all dead players positions to his own feet, and then revive them using the raiders name links. This is done regardless of request.

VICTORY: At the end of time (in prototype/timed mode) the GM will declare "last wipe" and let them play one more run at the crate. This is to make sure that a battle does not break due to time out. When a side wipes, tho, the GM will recover them, go the the center, count to 5, and despawn the crate. After that the GM will list the participants inventories again and/or ask them to faketrade the water to him for counting score.
An easier and faster way to verify score in real time during the match is under study to create optional ways to play.


If a side grieves the "safe" hub of the opposed side, The GM is free to warp his whole team to their own hub, possibly breaking the looting of the crate, with no more than one* warning. Consecutive grieving inside the safe hub may spell a player's disqualification.

QUITTING THE EVENT: As In any event, we use the raid mode to ease warping. So if you want out, remember to leave the event raid, as event warps will continue to reunite the whole raid. Please dont complain about wasted hearthstones if you HSed before leaving your event raid. If you quit an event, do not expect a rewards voucher.

VOUCHER FORMAT: For this event, vouchers will mention to the agent if the side of the awarded player won or just participated. How that will play in the reward is, as usual, left to the will and possibilities of the rewards agent.

AVERAGE HKs PER MATCH: Not determined yet but a player reported almost 50 in one event.

Have Fun

FS

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Results:

Unlike the last battle 3 weeks ago(4 events won by the Alliance and 0 for Horde) , the Horde REALLY brought the Steel with them this time. Final Count was 44 (H) x 6 (A). The Horde won.


Glorious & Victorious: Nickje, MoorDots, Larskirsperse (ooh gods i need to macro this name), Azshka, Tercius, Myang.

Brave Competitors: Retocyn, Bodybuilding, Lowblow, Brkonja, Pewkie (Reminder: To give Pewkie his holy waters back)

Thanks to these and also to Madson and those who didnt stay till the end.

Hope you had fun. Vouchers are on their way.

Feel free to add to this event. This is a work in progress.
