Okay, the event's over and I'm in the process of editing the video footage! :p_smile: Please post your feedback here so I may improve the event for next December!

EDIT: Video footage now up!

I'm sorry I couldn't get to everyone's consolation gifts (for those who were unclaimed). If you didn't receive a consolation gift, please PM me and I'll schedule a meeting time to give you one.

Secret Odins, you may now contact your claimed players! Please do so, especially if you ended up not being able to attend the event at the last minute!

The following people, please contact me to pick up your gifts:

Cuma (WoIf <--- Wo (i) f) - Rideword Hat

The following people will receive bonus gifts from me for taking the time to write a creative letter describing what you wanted. Please PM me for the bonus gifts!

You forgot +heal+ unless he popped on to get the safe to 10 cert I gave you.

 

As for doing things differently, I would save the people who are late until last.  The main problem was from other people who decided to be rude.  There is very little you can do to fix that.

Well...the event on itself was well planned.  It only needed more control (though it also depends on the participants)

 

From the 1st thread...it would have been good if it was mandatory to make the post requesting the gift as a Santa letter, few players did this, most post were "I want THIS my ign is THAT"

 

The 2nd thread was fine, we democratically chose a time for the event.

 

The problem was the people at the event that were rude, both in comments and skill spamming, not to mention the Secret Odins that didn't attend (thoung that could happen due to a variety of last minute factors) and didn't hav the precaution to leave the gift with you.

 

Oh, I forgot! This was my very first event at RO (actually the 1st event I attend in a MMORPG that I play) and I must say you were a terrific host, Zero Tigress, really good.

At the very beginning of the event when there was no lag and no silly people. You can see there's a big space between the sleigh and the sitting people.

This will always be an issue with events as the time will never work for everyone, yet people will still want to participate. I couldn't make the event since I worked 8 hours till 10:30pm PST (it was busy as -_- where I worked till closing) and by the time I got home I was too tired to log on and see where things had got. I did leave my gifts I got for others with zero though the day before - even though pretty last minute as I didn't get my work shift till less than 24hrs before hand.

 

Dunno about other people but I was pretty close to not handing my gifts over to some one to pass out for the event just because of not knowing that day would become busy for me. :\

Did you? Sorry, I couldn't keep track in all the chaos. Plus, someone unloaded a whole bunch of gifts on me as a thank you so I'm having trouble sorting out which in my inventory were Secret Odin gifts and which were thank you gifts. >_<

Err, need to double-check. I could've sworn I saw you at the event.

Yeah, everyone was organized as planned at the beginning. I don't know when it was when people started inching towards the sleigh. I was pretty flustered trying to track everything. oTL

Yes, unfortunately your Secret Odin was a no-show. :(

The problem was, us in the back couldn't see whose turn it was, and sometimes people opened random chats, so it was easier to move forward to see you talk. :x You need more megaphones. :3

 

And yeah, other than the skill spamming (I'm watching you yaguh and the guy who warped Frost Cannons, that was just outright rude :v) think it was ok, didn't really mind the occasional comments with some innuendo. :>

The odd comment, or the odd skill(preferably just the Christmas Music Box accessory) wouldn't have been bad. But people just spamming because they want to ruin something that was intended to bring people together to meet others, or to make more friends, was annoying. Though, there wasn't anything that could really be done about it, other than having a GM there to warp out the people that did that.

Perhaps a skill-less event map could be created that could be used for events where hosts don't want skills being abused. It could work for more events than just something like this too. Michaeeli's frequent events come to mind where people just don't seem to give two flying terds about anyone other than themselves and showing off their skills, as if no other character in the game has those skills or like they havn't been seen before thousands of times.

 

 

Skill spamming during events is really just another form of griefing, and considering events are a big part of the RO community, it would be nice if it were somehow addressed by the GM team.

Only problem with using the megaphones though was that it attracted people that didn't know what was going on (not that it didn't bring nice people but talking about other people that were just coming and were like "give me a gift!!" or just spamming). Yeah I thought the warping was pretty rude :/

 

It was pretty fun in the raidcall too with a large group of us hanging out in there, listening to christmas music.

Megaphones show the message to the entire server I think (probably why there were people thinking that Zero was a GM >.>;; )

 

Yeah, would be neat if there was a way to make it just show the message in one certain area instead of all the maps.

I thought it was fun, but it took a long time to get the presents sorted. Maybe next year it could be more player driven, with the secret Odin's in one area and the gift receivers at another. The Odin's could find their receivers in the mass and distribute gifts accordingly. I had brought a whole bunch of dead branches for an after party, but was so tired and drunk by the time it ended I pretty much fell asleep at the wheel. It was a ton of fun until I passed out! Thank you for overseeing such a wonderful event!
