This thread is a call to the community for ideas for some kind of competition to allow Portal Seekers to distribute coin back to the community.
Since the wipe, the Portal Seekers guild has worked to provide a familiar, standardized gateway system to connect everyone together. Through community usage of our gateways, and the footfall mechanic we have amassed a significant amount of coin. A lot of this coin has been used to maintain and improve our gateway system, but we are finding ourselves with plenty of excess coin. We see no other option than to give this coin back to the community through some kind of event.
Currently the prize pool is in the area of 5 million coin. This may increase a bit depending how long it takes to get this event off the ground. Payouts would be something like 1 million for first place, and 100 thousand coin for 20th place. Specifics here are still up for debate, please speak your mind!
In the past we’ve had building competitions. Most have had some kind of theme. Scavenger hunts have also been done in the past, but they take much more effort to setup and somewhat depend on if you’re online at the right time or not, which is less than ideal. What I’m looking for is any idea for a competition where everyone can participate. This could be a specific theme for a building competition, or something new altogether! Please let us know your ideas and we will vote at our next guild meeting in October for the best idea!
Here are some ideas I have, let me know what you guys think:
- 3x3x3 plots for each participant, make a build depicting a vehicle or mount that you would like to see in the game. Build and chisel a road-runner, or perhaps a gleam-dozer.
- Grapple race, consistent grapples could be provided each round and returned at the end of each round to track that they are warn the proper amount. Grapple courses would need to be constructed.
Please let us know your ideas!
