Would be neat to have maybe a scoreboard building for all the events.. isnt there one on event island for stats and such.. hiscore score board i think?

You will now be able to earn points at any event you go to. This will allow players that can't be on during the set times to gain points as well. This should also make it a little more challenging for those that just log on during the times and log off right after they are finished. This starts immediately thank you.


Edit: Raffle and Monster Spawn are the only events you don't earn points at. Sorry forgot to mention this.

It is not challenging to sit around and do nothing on GK, waiting for an EM to host events randomly throughout the day. There was no challenge previously and there won't be any challenge to it now.

It's gone from an ok event idea to "whoever spends the most time on gk gets soccers or watever best in slot item we can pull out of our ass this month"

If the prizes weren't so over the top i'd be fine with it really. but when you're essentially hosting a 31 day raffle for top tier items something's wrong.. ironically raffle is the only event that doesnt give points that count towards the big ass monthly raffle

I also suggested to lower the prizes drastically. because in like october/november we have high tier items flooded the market and everything will be worthless and the economy will even get worse

Yeah. But at the same time it sort of ruins the purpose of the event doesnt it? Originally it was supposed to be some sort of massive month long event with bad ass prizes. If it's a month long and the prizes are lowered people don't want to play. Especially not if they're forced to max out their GK hours in order to have a fair chance of competing.

I'm not trying to bust the events team's balls here I'm just voicing the pretty obvious concerns with this change that for some reason went right over their heads..

Most of the people who complained they couldn't be on for the 1 hour (or 2 hours?) that the point events were hosted are not people who spend their every breathing moment on gk. This change, if anything, punishes the people it was meant to help out..

It may hurt the players that log on for the events and log off right after I agree. It also gives players that aren't able to be on at these times an opportunity to win the monthly event.

I do agree that some of these prizes have been pretty intense and that can be toned down slightly. We wont tone it down to far to where players don't want to participate but still can be toned down.

Besides the first month we haven't technically added new items to the server. Stephen has been doing auctions and the items that have been auction are usually the prizes that are given out. So besides the last to holidays we aren't effecting the item values because the items were already in game.

I am simply trying to help keep Graal Kingdom's some what alive. You are right Challenge was the wrong word to use. However, I have yet to see anyone come up with an idea in complete detail that can be worked on. This is simply a trial phase so we will see what happens over the next 7 days. I might just cancel this whole points event completely.
