The Horde V2 [PvM Wave by Wave Survival] (August 24th)

Recommended Posts

The Horde - A second coming

 

I am happy to announce that on Friday, August 24, at 3:30 Server time - we will be hosting YET ANOTHER Wave by Wave PvM Event we like to call "The Horde."

POST YOUR TEAM BELOW TO CONFIRM YOUR ENTRY!!

The first Horde, hosted over 2 months ago, was tremendously successful and was a very enjoyable experience to not only participate in, but also spectate. Sam and I have received numerous requests to do another one, so here we are! However, this time, things are going to be a little different. I'll explain more below.

 

       What is it and how does it work?

  • The Horde is a wave by wave PvM "minigame" where teams of 3 will face increasingly difficult monsters in attempts to outlast their competition.
  • You will only be allowed to bank before certain waves begin, up to the discretion of the Horde runners [Myself and Sam]
  • You and your team will be placed in the arena, when you are all ready, the wave will begin.
  • You will need ALL 3 combat styles, as well as certain items to protect you from certain monsters. Hint hint.
  • The team who survives the most waves (or progresses the most on the same wave if tied) will be crowned the victors.
  • Please post your team below, letting us know you will be attending the event.

 

       Rules:

  • Try not to die.
  • No safespotting.
  • Sam and Nick have the absolute say on anything; questioning their judgement is an immediate forfeit for said player/team.
  • Under no circumstances do any team get 're-do's"
  • The list of bosses will be posted 10 minutes prior to the start of the Horde.

 

       "Nightmare Round":

  • This will be a round where a random person of each team will be asked to solo the round themselves.
  • Failing this round does not make you fail the horde, but your team does not get the reward for this round.
  • Different rounds for different teams. This will not be a posted round.
  • Still under consideration as to whether we want to do this (time based).

 

        Rewards:

  • For those who reach the first wave threshold of 10, all members of the team will receive one mystery box.
  • For anyone who reaches the second wave threshold of 15, all members of that team will receive a premium box instead of the regular box received at wave 10.
  • For anyone who completes the "Nightmare Round", all members of the team will be given $10 store credit.
  • For anyone who completes the final wave, all members of the team will receive an upgrade to their ranks.
  • For the longest surviving team who makes it the farthest, all members will be rewarded a unique cosmetic only obtainable through this event.

 

Good luck to everyone - please post your team setup below (minimum of 1, maximum of 3 people). May the odds be ever in your favor. Be ready to fight for your survival!

1. Keep the nightmare round, sounds spicy. Or maybe have something epic like if the solo player doesn't complete it, your whole team isn't allowed to restock inventory till next threshold. (If that makes sense, just some kind of twist rather than, oh you didn't manage it.. nvm)

2. Will the horde event be tested to see if it's possible to complete beforehand?

3. Will there be any way to have it so all teams attempt it at around the same time or is that too much work, those who aren't first have a bigger advantage

Up for discussion before tomorrow, Sam and I are going to brainstorm tonight. Do you have your team?  Also, last time all rounds were passable except the last.. pretty much on purpose.

Also those rewards are from last event, changing them for this one.

Edited -

 

Changes being made to next HORDE PvM event:

  1. We are changing from Trio teams to Duo teams
  2. We are not allowing certain summoning familiars (namely iron/steel titans). Yaks will be allowed still.
  3. Certain NPCs will be reworked to work more fluidly - Chaos Ele, Corporeal beast.
  4. There will be two arenas instead of one. This was originally the plan this time but due to unforeseen circumstances it wasn't possible.
  5. Nightmare round will be different but was a successful and I think respected idea so it will continue. Rewards may change.
  6. A new VIP system will be put in place where the winning team picks a VIP to receive a better reward than the fellow teammates.
  7. Others to come?

 

Thanks everyone for attending the event. Enjoyed hosting it again.
