Topic Free Firehawk (March 2nd)
There is a bit of confusion so I'll save my congrats until total confirmation!
Apparently another person looted it, took a SS and then got knocked off the chest. My eligibility post states the following:
Eligibility: If you see Grommash or Tojara as an Ogre with dual Warglaives the prize is valid. First person to loot the chest and take a screenshot with the chest open wins.
It has nothing to do with actually looting the item. I did it this way because the item requires you to click okay, and it's very likely that you will be killed or knocked away in the second the chest actually opens.. which apparently did happen. Perhaps I will alter the rules for the next time to make it so that all contents of the chest must be looted, but I am going to have to abide by the rules I placed in motion.
If this person can produce a SS then the reward will rightfully go to them as per the rules I outlined in the original post. If not the reward will go to iliketrtlz.
As per screenshot the actual winner is Agility from Civilian. Congratulations.
What ended up happening was Agility looted all of the items and was first to open the chest (as per rules) and take a screenshot. The only item that wasn't looted was the actual trinket because unlike the rest there is a confirmation for looting it.
This is why I put the screenshot clause in the original rules because it's hard enough getting 10 seconds of free time, let alone more to click the confirmation on the trinket itself.
I am highly likely to do this again (possibly next week) because it was a lot of fun. It didn't last as long as I thought it would last but it was still great to see a bunch of people in one area for once.
Good show! Glad we got to participate. Figures that a stealthy rogue would sneak it open. It's too bad there needs to be an incentive to PvP, but at least CryHavoc has the ability to cause some bloodshed on a desolate server. Hope to see more proactive players promoting things like this in the future.
War, you were quite the pesky rogue even before the event started! I saw you poking people in the ribs out there! Next time I think I will have to bring my rogue as well.
Seems rogues have quite the advantage with those SMOKE BAWMS on the chest
Will probably be doing one this Friday again!
I'll clarify some of the rule changes to make it a bit more transparent (and hopefully last a bit longer). Check the original post on the front page for the rules, as always!
Keep one thing in mind though. While I will hold true to my word as far as the winner claiming the prize (as I did with the recent winner) you may or may not get your reward in the same reset. I might have a buyer this week and as such it would push the potential winners prize back one week. So just don't expect immediate rewards, but you will get them!
Gauntlet like what?
I really want to steer away from an arena based format. I'd like to give everybody a chance and make it truly 'random' as far as the victor goes. It's really not about skill. Plus I am incredibly lazy and adding more hoops to jump through isn't my cup of tea.
There is a level of skill if people do it right. In my line of thinking a typical 5 man group that wants to go for it would have the following:
-2 DPS there to just flat out kill people
-1 DPS that solely AoE/disrupts on top of the chest
-1 person just constantly looting the chest
From the turn out last time it's also apparent that a lot of people simply like to watch a bunch of people get killed, so in that regard I find it a success.
I am open to suggestion as long as pretty much anybody can win and the rules really aren't that complicated.
