Return of guild events

Post by Holybarry » Wed Apr 13, 2016 7:48 am

So I've spoken to zal about this and we are both eager to bring back guild events. However we would love everyone's feedback on the type of mini games / events you would be interested in.

For example every Friday or Saturday I am going to start a mythic brf group for the black hand key. So we can skip right to backhand for the mount.

But other events can be, level one races across the continent :)

Zal is arranging the rewards for the winners :)

What type of events you guys interested in?

From the top of my head what I would find interesting:
  • short stand-up comedy show (5-ish minutes) or some sort of funny sketch
  • thematic dress-up party (you have to wear an item of certain colour or an item that has to do with <insert a theme here>), perhaps with prize to the best interpretation or most of the colour etc
  • trivia quiz wow/guild questions, could be fluff or game-mechanics or class knowledge, guild history stuff (triviabot add-on thingie with custom questions)
  • a trip into the unknown (only the leader knows where we are going and we go full way there, no portals, no riding/flying) then we get to do funny tasks there (kill or do something without-using or using-only something, reach some point without aggroing, and similar) while others watch
  • pvp together or pvp raid a place - that used to be a great event I remember when we were sneaking in into Undercity, that was hilarious (an idea is that one guildie switches to horde and hides in the city while the rest of us try to find him)
  • do something of the above with low level chars, would require us having low level chars of the similar level though
I don't think Fri/Sat would be good days for these events. We should do that when a raid is off, or perhaps another day when everyone can be online (Tue, Sun during day), it could be shorter event too up to two hours, perhaps Fri/Sat with later start would suit us who spend evenings with kids on those days (us being me, me and I).

More ideas:
  • competitions in cooking or fishing, where people are in several competing groups, and you get a list of stuff to cook or fish or kill (collect certain drops from some place or instance) and then when time is up the group with most items wins
  • find a place competition - each participant prepares a screenshots from wow from a perspective that doesn't reveal where it is but gives hints, then people try to find the place in game: you leave an alt positioned in the right place and when everyone's ready at what they think is the right place, you switch and closest person(s) get points
  • group competition - chain-run an instance killing as many as possible mobs with certain name, would require an add-on that counts kills, group with most kills out of 5 resets wins

Some added Ideas:
  • *Split into 2 or more teams, goal is to clear HFC normal (or some other content) in a 5 man group. Team to clear it furthest or fastest with-in 3 hours wins.
    * level 1 duels
    * Transmog competition based on gear from one of the expansions (or in general), you're not allowed to use more than 2 items from a tier set.
    * Human Darts - find a tall location, goal is to jump off and land as close to a target as possible (top of BRM / Dalaran etc).
    * WoW Lore / Game quiz - split into teams of 3 - 5. Each having their own channel with a judge inside each one. (WoW chat channel, like SFHealers for example).

I love the idea! Transmog competitions would be awesome, we could have categories like 'scariest badass' or 'most likely to get arrested for being too skimpy!' (Goes Tomane skimpy badass outfit)

We deffo need to get the Sunfall Awards back as well! Categories such as Most Handsome Shaman and Best Shaman Melee DPS and Best Shaman Beginning With Z! :)

More ideas please!

Ynnus' hide and seek the Horde alt idea made me laugh, love some of these!

Can the prize be a 'Cord of Unhinged Malice'? Or a boosted 4 set and BiS weapon and trinket on any alt of your choice, regardless of ilvl?

If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way you were told.

If the event you win is worth all this effort everyone needs to put in to boost someone, sure :)

I will probably gift a store mount / pet for one of the major events ;)

We could also do that whole Garrison PvP shenanigans for people who want all the titles, like Lord of War and stuff!

I recall a rather large group of Sunfall traipsing across the barrens in pvp mode to take part in a deviate fishing contest! Whoever caught the most won, and then we invaded Orgrimmar as ninja's and pirates. Ahh a good day was that. ;)
And the Sunfall awards were always fun :D

Lets get this going soon guys, maybe around the time of the pre-patch when more people are on. Celebrate the end of this expansion with a boom?!

Transmog compition is a must, with the new wardrobe functionality ;)
