    I feel like the event department here is lacking either by lack of community drive and/or staff drive. If we could come together and bring more exciting and evolving events into RP then it would be amazing! something like once a week there is an event of some sorts, now I have no problem with random IC encounters with people, but nowadays most of the good RP (at least that I have found) Is in some way set up in some way shape or form. Many times someone has thought of a good event idea and it just gets no attention or it gets the good ol' "nice idea, but not really my thing. good luck though!"  There must be a way to fix this, maybe a thread where the staff and community communicate and vote on an event for that week. These events could make sense in game too, such as a few traders coming through with a truck or two loaded up for supplies. or a military caravan traveling through Chernarus that has the "cure" for the infection. The events don't have to be big and spectacular or even last for more than a few hours, just something on a consistent basis to help spice up the RP, rather than the mostly stale RP that happens nowadays. Also these events could help make random encounters more interesting too. Say that Survivor 1 walks up to Survivor 2 and they have a conversation, well I think that the news of a military caravan with the "cure" would create some gossip and therefore spice up the RP.

 

  Thanks for reading my wall of text :P

weekly events should be a thing after lore wipe, rn it would be a bit pointless

There are no loremasters. Who is going to write and plan said events?

Best to leave it until after the lore wipe, if that's still going ahead.

As Andrey said, should only happen after a lore wipe, and hopefully the lorewipe happens after beta or even after .62 hopefully. 

That being said, kinda seems like the lorewipe isn't gonna happen at all now, again, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

To be fair, one was a fight club and the other was just "kill animals you have 2 hours", no offence but they're hardly going to fill a server. Exciting role play events that make IC sense are what we need, not that.

The idea behind the fight club was to get all the groups that did have a lot of beef with eachother IC (For Example, A New Moon and Akrasia) to fight without the use of weapons and RP with each other in a hostile way without initiations or use of firearms. At the time, it would've made sense... Now that all of them man are gone, it wouldn't work as well.

None of the groups that are known for PVP ever get the chance to RP with the groups that they're beefing with... Because it's just straight up initiations and PVP, that's what I wanted to change regarding this event.

The fight club idea was only created because of this reason, and this reason only.

Makes sense @Beni, o7 to them.

If people are interested in events to hold us over until the lore wipe in god knows how many months/years, I'd be happy to collab with someone and write one up. Written a fair bit of lore since I joined and I hosted a couple dynamic mini events whilst I was GM.

At one point it seemed like there was an RP event every other day. There was even need for a server dedicated to host them.

Some events were successful, some not so much. But there was a lot of fun times. I'm sure there are plenty of videos on the forums and on Youtube capturing the experience. Some events were organized to push forward the lore, and others were PvP events that would usually take place before a wipe. I only participated in a few but I enjoyed it.

Would be nice to see more well planned and organized events.

I loved the small dynamic events that happened randomly.

Anyone in the community can come up with an idea, submit it to the loremasters who review it and make sure it doesn't conflict with the lore or any future plans. After the event is accepted they agree on time and date, only staff involvement needed would be a single gamemaster or admin who has rcon access sending a serverside "radio" broadcast and the event is on. Many people sit there just twiddling their thumbs and waiting for staff to arrange these events. All we need is some people with a vision and some staff help to pull it off.

I think we need more of those!

Even without Loremasters any member of staff can throw an event with the right amount of help and someone with Rcon.  We've done it in the past. We dont need some huge lore event, a simple dynamic event such as "so and so stole this from me get them and bring them here" could go along way. All this will really take to get going is volunteers and an idea. 

 

EDIT: Doesnt even have to be a staff member. ANYONE can do an event, just ask the neighborhood @Volke :D

well I mean, I made an "event" a few hours ago, I just got a bunch of zombies to surround my in a house and @Lyca sent out a global message to everyone which was my character broadcasting for help. It created some amazing RP that lasted a few hours. Events dont have to be huge, just somethin that makes sense and will bring RP

I have no problems with weekly events, but the problem is we first need events.
Yes, we have no Loremasters right now. So the community needs to make them and after that signup of course.
Without that, we have no events. The events don't have to big, bigger or biggest.
And we don't have to wait for a lore wipe. It depends if people like the event and want to take part of it.

I am always a fan of events, but in order for them to be carried out there needs to be people who are willing to do so. We can come up with the best and cleanest event ideas out there, but without participation nothing's going to happen. This is why I'm a fan of those pop up RCON messgaes, because it has a much bigger possibility of sparking participation.

We have no lore masters, but that doesn't mean we can't have events. All we need is availability and an open line of communications with GM's or Admins. Every once in a while, with staff permission, we should be able to ask staff to post a radio message for us via RCON so that everyone on the server gets something like:

*Your radio beeps loudly and static is heard. Every so often a female voice with a Chernarussian accent breaks through the static, but it is difficult to make out exactly what they're saying. "Anton? Do you.... me? *Cough* I need....... but...... no way to get there........ help immed- ...... never make it..... -onica all dead. Please! PLEASE! I'm held.... red barn..... sobor." The message continues, but the static becomes too severe and all you can make out is occasional sobbing.*

If players are in the middle of RP or already busy, they are free to simply ignore the message and continue what they're doing. If they are walking around looking for RP, they're free to explore the area mentioned in the message to try to figure out what's going on. Perhaps they find an injured survivor with a harrowing tale of how they lost several members of her group/family, maybe (with the permission of an existing group) they can claim that they were butchered by an existing group/faction. Maybe the players can decide to escort the survivor to sinastock or vishnoye or rogovo or wherever they decide to say is their safe house, and during the escort they players can discuss the attack, their prior experience with the attackers, who knows maybe the attackers even end up waiting on the roadway between the players and the safe house. 

This is all just pulled out of my ass in 5 minutes, but the point is as great as LM's would be, we as community members can still put on mini-events every so often if we get coordinate with staff and get a few volunteers from the community to help us pull it off. Just be sure not to be a dick if you show up to a mini event and try to make it ALL about you please, I hate when people do that. It's something small and fun to participate in, no need to run in and swing your dick around.

Popup RCON messages are great for this sort of thing, weekly events don't have to be massive, they just have to centralize and create some form of interesting RP. Get a GM+, ask the person if he would be alright setting something up and bang, you could have an RCON event set up.

Massive +1 to this, events are great and if you have an idea for even post an idea here.
