View Full Version : Protect the GM Event

January 22nd, 2010, 11:11 AM
On Wednesday, Jan 27, there will be a protect the GM event for both servers at 6:00pm EST (check the in-game clock).

One nation will be the attacker, the other nation will be the defender. Which nation will be which will be decided when the event starts.

The target GM will fly from the start point to it's end destination. The defending nation can issue commands to the GM on it's route as well as give commands for it's general actions.

Depending on the balance, the target GM's attacks and defense will be scaled accordingly. The GM will not be showing any name as well.

If the target GM is shot down, then he will start back at the original destination. For every shootdown the attacking nation will get a Suba Capsule. For every successful map traversed the defending nation will get a Suba Capsule.

If the defending nation makes a successful trip, or if the attacking nation can shoot down the GM 5 times the event ends. In that case, the winning nation gets 5 Suba Capsules. If the event lasts longer than 30 minutes, then it will be considered a Draw and both nations will get 2 Suba capsules. All capsules will be distributed at the end of the event.

Please note that the event rules may change depending on reception as well as other outside factors.

Are the GMs gonna have their normal stats? Like 300 of everything and those e50 armors? Because, if so, I need to go make a godly pierce/prob weapon. Still sounds fun though. :awsum:

Are the VIP gonna use a normal engine and fly at curise speed? Because that 800ms boosting speed on gm engine is not fun :V

When you say that do you mean anyone from the nation or just nation leaders. :confused:

Even though I think you mean just the leaders.

If -not- only from leaders... early condolences for the GM that is gonna be escorted by BCU Prelude O.o

I'd say just leaders, if it's everyone that would be chaotic.
So I imagine leaders can give orders like "Fly round the edges" or "high alt!" or "Just follow the big mass of us, and we'll defend you yo."

Or heres an interesting order
"CRASH INTO THE FLOOR AND DO THE MAP AGAIN, DON'T ALLOW THEM TO KILL YOU FOR CAPS"

Finally you guys are stepping up and beyond the grind factor.
PVP is Ace Online, and you should embrace that (as all of us as well). Good luck and it WILL be a success.

In B4 "Do a Barrel Roll" x50.

Also, good event idea. Hope it turns out well :D

Can we also select what gear skills our GM is using?

ie. pick igear and spam chainroll?

It's a viable tactic! :awsum:

Order 1 = "GM plz activate invince and disable cooldown, hold your finger on whatever number invince is on."

Order 2 = "Do a barrel roll just to mess with them."

10 questions to follow up on things the offense can/cannot direct the GMs to do and what they are allowed to use. Other questions too:

1. Can we direct the GM to use the big ball of missles? (That thing can take out every mob + all of BCUs numbers + MS on a map)
2. May offense ask the GM to attack in general?
3. May offense ask the GM to use buffs?
4. May offense have Mgs Buff the GM? (Holy crap GM missle + 40% O_O)
5. May offense be involved in protecting the GM?
6. Wouldnt the GM have like 200% Eva and be un-hittable?
7. May offense give the GMs items to use like Brave caps or somthin?
8. Can offense direct the GM to kit?
9. Will there be any mobs in the maps?
10. What maps are the start & end point for if BCU or ANI were chosen

1. No that would ruin the event
5. Wtf why would you do that?
6. Around there, but there would be 300~ people attacking him, so no not unkillable.
7. Can't trade brave caps
8. Kitting WOULD make it unkillable
9. MEBE
10. NO U

You really expect Gms to stay up till like 3am to play games with complete strangers that don't speak english? Not saying you dont speak english but you did mention the Pinoys...

And kiwi is a fruit bro


Edit- on a side note, I bet the Gms would show themselves and do more stuff like this more often if people would stop spamming GM PLZ PM ME MY BAWOO NID OVERHEAT HALP on every chat

After seeing "be Bgear, do BB", hope GM cant/ wont accept CoHs. GM BB wipes the enemy, Mgear hiding high alt over next warp lets enemy through only to slip behind warp and CoH GM right into the warp. =S

Actaully, hope its just defensive and positioning orders that are allowed considering it sounds like the event is supposed to be just a escort mission.

I can only imagine, orders like telling the GM to BB would be a little extreme since they will prolly have heavy HP armor

the kinda commands avalible to issue are ones like "Stop"

"Go high alt"
"Go Low Alt"
"Hide at *destination*"

Simple ones like that, given by the leader of the nation

So if any nation has a stupid leader... I feel sorry for you D;

Nahh see now john just shouts over LC and no one listens cause hes a tool (kinda like how when revo got akron he yelled at everyone to basically abandon bark).

Basically the subs are way better leaders than he could ever hope to be.

I think we are all in agreement here that there needs to be a lot more clarification... if we are able to heal/buff/Full Heal the GM, then the strategy around the whole event will be completely different.
