Tonight I finished the video for The East Kingdom’s Guild Survivor Event from last month. It is now on youtube as shown here:
So looking back on the event, there were some mistakes made that I would correct if we did the event again. Also some changes I might make. I have noted some of these in the previous posts one and two, but here they are again:
1) For the timed raid- I really think Kara chess would have been the most awesome, but we had an entry glitch as well as someone we needed to be there not available if I remember right. So make sure you have one person from each team do Kara up to chess before the event so it will be ready to go.
For Kara I would send a judge in with the team, but no help should be given. For what we did though, which was VOA- next time I would not send judges in. It should just be whichever team comes out first wins. If one team is missing a healer or a tank from losing this role in the first round, they will have to do the raid without that role.
I would also make some other changes to the timed raid- more of an incentive given to the winning team and maybe a random elimination instead of voting off people so early in the contest.
2) The biggest mistake I made in planning the event was the Food Race for night two. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I planned a PVP objective for all alliance in a regular zone. Obviously this was completely wrong. Any kind of PVP event like this should be in an arena area where everyone is flagged.
3) One thing I noticed when watching the video footage is that in every foot-race the three retribution paladins were in the lead. Be aware that they are one class that has a speed run talent in their tree. If I do the contest again, I think I will somehow have to make it where ret paladins (and I think BM hunters?) will have to race in a secondary spec.
Those are the only things I have thought of so far though because it was an awesome event! Very much fun was had, and I had a great time planning it.
