View Full Version : Black Vs White Weekend Event Test

This weekend starting tomorrow (Friday) we will be testing the Black Vs White Event. We've set it up to run at 5:00PM UTC Each day and will run for 4 hours. Now this is just a test to make sure it's working correctly so there may be bugs. One that might occur is the event starting early (at 1:00PM UTC) If this happens tomorrow we will adjust it so that it starts at the correct time. Hopefully this will all go smoothly, if not we will extend the 9x event to last the whole week. If everything does go as planned you can expect this to be a weekly event.

How can this war work if there are no players to participate in it?

This is only for test purpose. But without gear and high AR melee, things are gonna be funny.

And that's why no one went to BP for pvp after being FC7.

It's okay if you aren't there to play it. But that doesn't mean that there won't be others to play it. There's more people here besides you, y'know?

Is this a "real" Black vs White and players can get the epi killing True General Wei or what ?

And 4 hours to kill him with such low lvl players, it's gonna be tough.

Can i suggest doing WAR on weekends when people can play? you said before events were for EU players, 5PM UTC / 6pm GMT means people would have just about finished work and wont be home ontime, and ontop of that it's friday people probably would like to go for a few drinks?

Why not on Saturday when most will be available?
or do what previous EU server did and hold 2, one for Tuesday and other on Saturday to accomodate everyone from different timezones.

It wont be a daily event, it clearly stated WEEKLY.

It wont be a daily event, it clearly stated WEEKLY.

Either every day or every Friday to ensure there are no bugs and if there are, they can be removed. The event once set up smoothly will run weekly at appropriate times which the community will most likely decide.

Once they know how to set these events bug-free then can they set it at a proper time on weekends instead of stuck-in-rushhour-on-the- motorway fridays?

Exactly that! The times will be decided by the community. Weekends might be hard due to the GM not being able to use tools outside of the office.

Most probably. You could automate it via the db so I don't see why not.

So maybe I wasn't clear on when this event will take place. We are testing it today as mentioned in the original post and if all goes well it will also be on Saturday and Sunday. Then going forward they will be on Saturdays and Sundays. We can talk about adjusting the time so it suits the majority, but for this weekend it will start at 5:00PM UDT Today and on Saturday and Sunday(if everything works as planned).

I read many reply of u recently. In my opinion, Most of them is come with an aggressive comment.

I think everything is becoming better. Don't forget this server is opened around 1 month. U may be the old player but many of players (someone is a newbie, someone like me back to this game after many years) is not. If u don't trust suba, just leave this server or play game without using their service, blah blah....

The last line: Looking at Manchester United, David Moyes has nearly a year before get sacked.

Low crit rate on nukers+ red boss+ lowish CK atack rating should mean in misses=normal damage (1-2k or so each nuke) and only crit hits will be high damage, so yes, melle will have a chance at it specially if they can stack some YYBS buffs+ damage party. Also the more than likely EW+bleed might get alot of players killed in the action.

RagingAsura
May 2nd, 2014, 11:00 AM
Yeh but they need to rely on nukers stunning :D otherwise any melees get near they will probably die pretty fast. Nukers can probably stay out of range. It'll be interesting to see coming this weekend!

Then leave the forums and don't kick yourself with the door when you go out. Please.

Is the WvB going to interfere with the SvS?

Deimos
May 2nd, 2014, 03:52 PM
As far as I can tell the black vs white event isn't working correctly. The bosses don't seem to be spawning so we are going to leave the script in and see if they do spawn at any point over the weekend. If not we will have to go to the devs and ask "wtf?".

If you were somebody, I'd probably be offended. But no. Anyway, it's kinda lame that you don't have any life to attend or other things to do instead of *****ing in a post where your commentaries are just "I'm out of Suba and I hate it".

That event time will not quite good for VN player.
I suggest make this time for BvW like test time (1PM UTC) or at least 4PM UTC. Because if it happen on 5PM UTC, that's mean 12PM VN's time => most VN players can't join.

May 5th, 2014, 03:08 AM
Deimos said that event will be hold at at hour that will suit the majority. What's the difference between 4 pm UTC(11 pm vn time) and 5 pm utc(12 pm vn time). After 11:01 pm you can't click mouse or keys?! I have persons in my league that had their clock ring at 3 am just to participate at war.

You need to change its time to 4PM or 5PM UTC, and change the buff which allows you to enter CC5 to last like 20-30 mins.

Bosses spawned during the weekend but 4hrs earlier at 1PM UTC.

What about the 9x event? Will you extend it for the week?

RagingAsura

BvW seems ok, same as all other servers so far except the time difference. And the thing with the winners saving buff, thats always been there. But they used to get banned for entering if their side hasnt won, but this was a manual ban by GM's since they arent playing fair.

It's completely bugged.

Both "chicken" boss side got like 14% HP and it takes ages to kill them. When it hits 0 %, they die and respawn anim, then die again...Later if no one hit them, they get their life back and have been roaming in BP the whole day since the "Summer event" -name need to be fixed- started this saturday.

I will pass this information on to Deimos directly and hopefully he will be able to resolve the issue and update the players. Apologies for the inconvenience.
