I’m not sure I have the energy for a review of this event right now. And I don’t want to be accused of being nothing but negative again. But I can’t let this go by without providing some feedback from my team because I just don’t want to see this event again in it’s current form. I have not seen morale this low in a long time. I know it all has to do with the luck of your initial placement, but in the case of my team our placement was such that despite good strategy and alliances, etc… we ended up surrounded by a team with deeper wallets. I don’t blame them or call it bullying- I’m sure we would have done the same in their position. But the end result is that we only had one option for a team to hit for the majority of the event.
Some have said that we should not be allowed to hit the same player over and over (as has been the case in other events). And I can see how that has been an issue in this event. It does feel like farming. By the end of the first night, I had a guy hit me outside the event because I had already hit him so many times inside the event. lol But I don’t see how limiting hits could work in this event. When a team is stuck hitting only one other team, if you are forced to cycle through 10 players on that team it could be a challenge. Little players could easily be screwed in that case if they don’t have at least 10 players on the opposing team that they can beat.
Even with the ability to hit one player over and over, smaller players became really demoralized in this event. And larger players got really bored. So the end result is that most of our players decided to save their energy for another event. Which only exacerbated the problem of us being surrounded. lol
I don’t pretend to have the answers for a solution to these problems. But there need to be mechanisms that allow teams to attack more than one or two teams in an event. It’s just not fun for the many teams, like mine, who end up surrounded for the whole event. By the end, I would have even appreciated having the ability to hit the Blackbloods as an option. Maybe offer separate gauntlet islands or a stand-alone PVP Blackbloods island for teams to hit who get screwed with their initial placement? Just a thought.
Either way, please, please don’t bring this back in it’s current form. @PGSqurl
