PVP idea's aren't bad, just as some have already stated, a bit cliché. Lot's of people hold PVP matches only using certain guns, they just call it out in zone. You can do that anytime. Although, sometimes someone will screw it up and use an AR in a pistols only match. Plus, trying to make it fair for everyone. New people or mid-level players might as well not even participate. The 6k scaling makes no difference. Then you have rigs which some don't even have one, weapon skill levels, perks unlocked, etc. I really don't need to go on with more examples, you get the point i'm sure. Vets will have better gear because they have been playing longer. Only way around that would to be to setup tiers matchmaking based on ego range. That's why you never see low ego's on top of the leaderboard. Only way that could happen is if a vet transferred gear to a lower ego toon. Not to mention, some players may not even have the weapon type requested for the PVP match to be able to participate. Whether they are newish or even vets simply don't carry certain weapons types because they don't ever use them. At least, that's what some have claimed on here in previous threads..
Now, new players may not have all the fast travel points unlocked, but that's why I said don't just put the locations at fast travel points.. they'd be driving all over the map anyway like everybody else. Still a better chance for them then PVP. But I suppose there will be some that are only thinking of themselves when it comes to this. Let's be real, everyone knows that PVP = GVG Gear vs. Gear. Whoever has the best gear will come out on top in the majority of matches and you will have the same people on the top leaderboard. It's even easier if those players are all in a group together. Only other way to make it at least somewhat fair would be to strip everything from loadout & perks and make it a auto-pistols only match. Can't do anything about the pistol skill bonuses though if some don't have it. If some want a vet exclusive event that they will have the advatange over, then at least have the deceny to be honest about it.
As far as PVP ideas go though, I've always liked the OLTL with multiple rounds concept from the old school FPS shooter communities. Or something similiar to the patient zero game mode.
But to clarify.. is it going to be just handing out stuff to random people who are simply participating? Or is it going to be based more off of whoever the winners are at the events? Like a competition?
If it's going to be random handouts, how is that going to be selected? Pick a number again in zone chat?
How do you know the individual handing out the prizes won't just pick most of their friends or other clannies or people they like? Will there be both participation prizes and winner prizes and in that case I would guess the paricipation prizes would be lesser than the latter? Honestly.. it would be so much simpler if you just had a Trion employee handle the prize giving. But I think you guys said you don't even have an Xbox.. soo there goes that idea, unless someone up there has one at home as well as a PS4.
My original gathering on this was that it was going to be some sort of competitive event. But if they are just doing random giveaways like it's a social gathering, then yeah, a marathon type event like a Triathlon or giant race sounds legit. Stuff like that. Leave the scavenger hunt for next monthly holiday event optional pursuit possibly.
BUT even if it's solely based on participation.. it needs to be something that is open to everyone and not just have requirements that only some will be able to meet to participate in. And it would be nice if it's something that everyone can enjoy (not just all about the prizes) and not just a reason for new peeps to be easy arkforge bait.
An Easter egg hunt? C'mon now, I'm chasing guns and mods... I want to shoot things.

Looks like more fun than "collecting" multi-colored hard boiled eggs, so yeah...

Looking forward to this event...just a couple things to consider:
While it's unfair to assume that clan leaders/founders are unsrupulous, they are likely great leaders because they "take care" of their members. That being said...it's not only ensuring that the prizes are being properly dispersed, it's the quality or value of the prizes dispersed. For example: awarding lockbox codes or special weapons ( which would have the most interest )to clan members and in game friends, while awarding, say, outfits or different colored challengers to the rest.
The events themselves need to somehow be "fair" for everyone. As Salem pointed out, things like PVP matches wouldn't be fair, even with only using certain weapon types...a newer player's blue spanner is no match for a supreme T5'd stingray! Now, if there was a way to alter pvp matches so that when you enter them, you are given a set weapon loadout, shield and rig and not have your own personal set up...this would be fair. Even vehicle races would have to be limited to 1 vehicle type that everyone had access to.
It's not going to be an easy task for devs and the chosen leaders to come up with events that are fair for everyone, so thank you in advance for all the effort and time that will be put into this. ( hopefully the chosen leaders are rewarded for their time and effort ).
Again, I'm looking forward to participating in whatever events we have as it will be fun to roll with and meet new people I might not otherwise get the chance to do. I'm also willing to help any chosen leaders with these events in any way I can...just let me know. ( 360NA )
