Promote WorldDefense More to Promote World PVP

#1 » Post by ComradeBork » 08 Apr 2017 18:20

Edit: Apparently this already exists in the game as LocalDefense and WorldDefense. Is it possible to get WorldDefense advertised on the autobroadcaster or auto-joined? I had no idea these channels were even things.

I have very fond memories on Avari (EchelonedWoW) of the entire server (or at least a faction) being alerted whenever a town owned by a faction was attacked by the other faction. I believe the alert would notify once every 15 or 30mins if an NPC was attacked in one of the towns per town (to avoid constant spam messages). I don't remember if the type of NPC mattered or not, but I'd be down with either mechanic.

One time I was doing a quest and killed some humans, Allys got notified (I didn't see, I don't remember if both factions got notified), they murdered me. I complained in world and some Horde came to save me. It was absolute chaos and a fantastic time.

If we had these alerts, people would know where world PVP is happening, and the players who love the hunt, will come.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we already have something that does this.
/join WorldDefense and /join LocalDefense
The second channel is self explanatory (gives warnings if you're present in that particular area).
The first one works the same way except you'll get warnings about whatever town or city of your faction is under attack (regardless of wherever you are, like you'll get warnings about Stormwind even if you're in Dalaran, as Alliance).
If you meant an announcement system that tells both sides about the action, then ignore this post, my bad.
Otherwise, I hope this helps.

This sounds like exactly what I want. So I'll change this suggestion to simply advertise these channels in the AutoBroadcaster!

Edit: LocalDefense is joined by default but WorldDefense is not. WorldDefense is probably 100% what I remember (I just don't think I had remember having to join a channel manually, but I probably did).

Well, I believe joining channels is not something the server can enforce (I think it's based on the client).
Otherwise, when creating a new character, we would spawn already in World channel.



As for promoting the WorldDefense channel, that's a +1 :tick: from me mate.
Just like you, I did not know either that was a thing. :roll:

Even I didn't know this was a channel ;)

I would definitely +1 this for better visibility through autobroadcast.

Like, broadcast message telling about WorldDefence or?
(AutoBroadcast, not auto-message on event)

Suggestion accepted.
"You can join the channels WorldDefense (global) and LocalDefense (current area) to find out when there is an attack by the opposing faction."
Added to the auto-broadcast list.

In case you want it reworded a specific way, I will keep this thread open for 48 hours more.
