Editing original post to be a full thread. Please disregard the needless hostility early on in the thread
As some know, Auctoria will be re-opening in 6.0 to HWS NA for all your PVP event planet needs! The tourist bit:
Atmosphere: Intermittently breathable, but not conducive to human colonization. Often thicker than is ideal for flight
The planet itself is as inhospitable as they come, and should serve as a test to your survival skills. A recaptured planet from the alien dynasty, Auctoria has become the favored playground of the rich and famous, and of mercenaries looking for fame and fortune, who duel to the death for the amusement of their patrons. In typical fashion, on occasion the alien queen herself has attempted to recapture the planet, the jewel of the alien colonies, but has up to this point been beaten back by the humans who inhabit the planet, their skills honed by decades of conflict. But there have been rumors that the queen will not take lightly the desecration of this planet, and may have something planned to reclaim it for herself…
Perhaps due to some remnant of alien technology deep below the surface of the planet, the environment of the planet seems to change periodically, becoming some of the most inhospitable that human kind has ever seen while still remaining capable of entry. The Trader federation hosts various events on the surface, ranging from unique races, survival challenges, a thunder dome arena that is different each time you enter, and the primary attraction, the weekly Battle Royale, where factions wishing to prove themselves must fight with every ounce of skill they can muster to survive the weekend, and claim the glory of victory. Each faction may build exactly one base for this event, on pre-approved base locations, located to best provide a fair balance. A Central Facility (admin cored) hosts the materials necessary for the wealthy clients to view the blood-sport in luxury, as well as a small munitions plant churning out weaponry meant for use in the arena. There has been rumors of a teleport from a safe location to this facility to facilitate ease of access to customers and contestants, but testing of the new technology has been…troublesome. Once the replacement engineers are hired however, and the stains removed, it may be open to use.
Ok so heres the bit where I need help. Beyond the obvious need for contestants, we need people with great ideas, and no place to bring them to life. We are talking everything from spider hunts, to pod races, to sv and hv duels. Anything y’all can think of, we can probably bring to this planet. To keep it a clean battlefield however, we will be doing semi regular wipes, the frequency of which is determined by how much use the planet sees. But if someone wants to host a chainsaw biathlon with waypoints and a giant jump where you then have to take out a base, go nuts. Bring me your ideas, and I would love to help bring it into “reality”.
A few restrictions:
- Nothing exploity.
- Nothing overly frustrating
- Nothing that would ruin the planet for other events. This means that once an event is done, even if you win, you may be asked to pack up so that the next day we can have our easter egg hunt, or whatever, without getting shot down and/or molested.
- No spoiling it for others. Now that we can individually restrict planets, people who violate basic even rules to grief other players will not be allowed to enter. That being said, we start with a blank slate. I dont hold grudges. If we have fought in the past, you are more than welcome to come and hang out with us in 6.0.
Original post from another thread that got out of hand. Just kept here for context to the ridiculous start this thread took.
Auctoria will be open for 6.0 pvp fights and whatnot. If you are interested in it just as a battleground, I’d love to coop run it, I am only one guy, and a lot of my ideas for events take a lot of prep time and effort. I know you had some of your own as well, but if wanted a place to host the events that aren’t op4 restricted or biased, That’d be awesome. Im mostly thinkin of the one you suggested where people come and try to take the planet from you. Obviously that would interfere with weekly competitions, and arena stuff. Plus the pod races.
