[Example] Dalaran's Assault: The Fury of the Frostbrood

Event date: 21th July 2014 - 16:40 ST
Expected length: 1 hour
Local: Dalaran City
Level Required: 75+
Prize: 150 Vote Points A wonderful surprise
Ages after the Lich King's defeat atop of the Frozen Throne, we've finally achieved a very honorable feat of strength - reaching the milestone of exactly 14309,3 wipes at Sindragosa's boss encounter.

The frost queen, ruler of all magic and former consort of Malygos, obviously got bored of standing by and watching mortals suffer as their pathetic magic betrays them so she decided to survey the magical city of Dalaran, threatening the lives of many mages.

The event will consist of three main goals that will need to be achieved simultaneously, a game master will be leading each of the groups that will split on completing the necessary objectives.
The Assault at Krasus' Landing
Image
The vicious wyrm Rimefang has yet again being raised back from the grave to lay waste upon the living, serving the Frost Queen. Sindragosa's fiercely ordered Rimefang and a couple of other wyrms to take over Krasus' Landing and retain it under her control so the Kirin Tor receives no further reinforcements from whichever friendly faction may think of laying them aid.

Players will have exactly 34 seconds to defeat Rimefang and break the blood elf flight master Aludane Whitecloud free from his frost tomb before he dies from asphyxiation. Failure to achieve this will result in Dalaran not being able to receive reinforcements for 5 minutes. Players that succeed defeating this bravado will have the rewarding prize split between them by the game master leading the group.
This objective will be available 5 minutes after the event starts.
The Siege of the Violet Citadel
Image
Seeing her success on taking control over the city and the infeasibility of Dalaran's mages at holding her back, Sindragosa and her loyal wyrms attempt to lay siege upon the Violet Citadel of Dalaran themselves.

At this step of the battle, players will be teleported to the different floors of Violet Citadel in an attempt to subdue and repel the wyrms that attack the building. Approximately 3 (three) wyrms should try to strike down players at each level. At the last one, Sindragosa herself will strike down the raid.

Any players that die at this objective will not be rewarded.

Players will be given movable - so they can aim better - Strand of the Ancients' artillery to shoot down Sindragosa.

When Sindragosa reaches 157,985 health points, this objective ends successfully and players are awarded their rewards.
Image
This objective will be available 15 minutes after the event starts.
And the third objective I had no time to finish.

Soooo... what do you guys thiiiiiiink? :D

Tbh while this all sounds great my main concern is that this is a fun-server feature. GM's spawning raid bosses in places where they shouldn't be and then rewarding players loot when they defeat this custom event. TrueWoW is supposed to to be the most authentic WotLK blizzclone out there and the implementation of GM-created events like these will only ruin our reputation as a blizzclone and begin to make us look like servers such as Eternal-WoW where they have GM created events such as Maze events or kill the giant GM-spawned NPC in some random location etc... What sets our server aside from the countless other fun servers out there is that we don't follow the bandwagon of trying to come up with these custom events to please people but we stick to our promise of delivering the best blizzclone server out there.

This is just a bogus event, don't take it serious, it was just to show Bottle an example of how I'd like things to go around events (presentation etc), info on the spoiler at the end

Bogus event or not this does seem like it was intended as an example as to how GMs should propose future custom-events. My argument was just targeting why TrueWoW does not need these kinds of events as it only makes us appear as a fun-server instead of a blizzclone like we are supposed to be.

Maybe it's time to make a suggestion to remove the "blizzclone" adjective from our server's description. If "blizzclone" means never changing, never improving and forever boring, then my opinion is that for the best interest of the server, it should no longer aim to being "blizzclone" but just "blizzlike" so it can keep improving without being accused of not following its description.

On-topic, I really like this idea and I also liked this example of event.

That's a slippery slope my friend. Back on Omega we were just like we are now, 4 years ago it started to change. 1 little change at a time. First came the portals, then came the tokens then guild houses and now 5x drop rates and all that nonsense. It may seem boring to you to stay a blizzclone, but trust me that you don't want to go down that path. Rag is right, we need to stick to what we are, if we budge once from it, the hyenas will grab it and start flaunting around more chips off of the blizzclone ideal and when you realise it, you can fly in Azeroth or something. I like the event idea, but not here.

If an event is really all that needed, we can just do something that can normally be done in the game without altering the world, something like organising people to run dungeons like challenge modes on retail, naked runs to destinations or a world pvp tourney. A guild vs guild event would also be a pretty kick ass thing, with all the people, just imagine the blood that will be spilled once everybody gathers up and starts destroying each other for the fun of it.

I support the idea of an event being made, but nothing that would require us to kick our ideals in the teeth.

So, because it happened in Omega it must also happen in here? The things I mean when I talk about "improving" are not near the likes of even portals, but things that wouldn't affect the mechanics and ecosystem of the game itself, like Transmogrification (not possible, at the moment, sadly) and events like the example proposed here. Such things are only to raise the community's activity and not to make the game easier, like with portals and tokens.

Don't worry, though. This is only a thought of mine. AFAIK, the staff has no plans to strictly follow it.

Yes, very interesting ideas, but you don't need the help of the staff to realise those events and, unless I'm interpreting the voting and approval of this example in the wrong way, this idea is for server-wide events that would require the staff's assistance.

Understandable, but main point still being. I support server wide events, but not events which require us to alter the state of the game, such as in this example, spawning mobs where they should not normally be, catch my drift?

No, I'm afraid I still can't catch your drift.

These events would only be temporary, within a very short time frame and not often at all, aparently. The only outcome of events like this, at the least, I imagine, would be something for the players to look forward to other than the usual routine that has been going on for like 4 years (¿?).

Noone got idea that this could be done on PTR and not Live, thus not altering real game play like Ragnarok said?

I feel it being on the PTR would be pointless, it may make more people go on the PTR, but ultimately only a small handful of people would go do it.

Regarding the slippery slope, I agree to an extent, but I'm afraid it's already happening. If you said 1 or 2 years ago that people would join the server with full 277 obviously donated gear, you'd be laughed at, but now it's the norm, I get the intentions, but it is still the beginning. Same for GMs appearing and morphing people/themselves into various things, wouldn't have happened before, now it's standard to see GMs flying around Dalaran, showing off their abilities. Some find it fun, a form of interaction, and nothing harmful. Would you have got away with it 2 years ago? Not at all.

Could be argued this is blizz to an extent, like the events that Blizz did themselves, only custom ones (the zombie thing etc) but dunno, where does it end?

This event will be voted yes. Why? It looks cool. We've been subjected to slow migration of thought, a slope as fastor said, for the past year or so. So now, yeah, this looks awesome! Dragons! Something new! Woo! But at some stage, an event will happen that, if it was the first event, it would be rejected, but because 5 events came before it, it will be accepted same as this one.
Why join the winning side if you can change the winner?

The event itself sounds awesome, but what if... you started the scourge invasion event, since the server never really experienced this? Also opening of the gates of AQ, assuming the event scripts are still there, it wouldn't hurt to experience them. :P
