If you will, allow me to take a moment to express my thoughts of an idea I had with a couple of my guildies a few months ago about a server-based event whereby we have all or any participating guilds take part in a series of categorized events to reach the goal of winning a wide variety of prizes.
Now the concept or rather organization of events is not set in stone, nor has it been discussed. Here is what I'm asking. If possible, I would love to be able to have a sit down with all participating guild GMs. Reason is I can't do this alone and what is the sense of making this a "server event" if only one person knows about it. Ya know?
So anyway, I would like to sit down and talk either via Vent or Mumble or even the rarely used in-game voice chat if needed to have a large conference with the GMs to discuss the different events, prizes, functionality of the entire project, and even who will be representing the guilds; depending on the route we take in development.
Now you may ask why am I, some random person on the server, coming up with this idea out of the blue? It's simply this...entertainment and fun. That's it. That's all there is to it. Gives the server something to push for as a whole to allow for an alternate motive to log on and take part in such things. Lately things have seemed very dismal and perhaps we can expand on this idea to give us all the boost we need.
Hell, who knows, maybe even get Blizz to give the server some time in the spotlight, especially if they see a large impact or collaboration rather from the community.
So this is what I give to you all. If I could have the GMs contact me whenever possible, I would love to begin brainstorming on this.
Granted, this may not be the most intriguing or exciting idea, but it's something for the community to take part in and I think we could all use that about now.
Be well everyone.
