Didn't work out very well imo[edit source]

It was too disorderly. Everyone was trying to tank, some people were getting pounded, we got crashed, and there was no loot.--Cheers, Off-hand ascension crossbow.pngYodaAscension crossbow.png 23:22, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • Disorderly? We had at least 70 people at the beginning, half of which hadn't read the page at all as far as i could tell. You think you can manage them all perfectly?
  • Why is everyone tanking a problem 0_o? It's their own problem if they die.
  • Again, who cares if they were getting owned while tanking? Their choice.
  • What do you want us to do about the last 2... Should we somehow strike a deal with Jagex to make our events run smoother...?

Also, you left early, Bull's cc had quite a good group of 15-20 people at the end. Everyone was against the wall except Bull and we got some decent LS drops. I'd estimate a few hundred K per person, Nothing big though. - [Pharos] 01:23, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

I've just left my team. We lasted for four hours - it was great. Too bad you didn't stick around long enough to get through the small amount of confusion that was present at the beginning. (; sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 02:37, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Exactly. I clearly stated to my team that if they do not want to be in with a chance of tanking, they should stick to the wall, and they did so. Those that did not got severely hurt and didn't do it again, and/or had their graves blessed and came back. Getting crashed, well, there's little we can do about that without 4+ maxed melee, overloaded clawers, which we do not have. I did my best to anticrash but, even when overloaded, me and my rapier are nothing against 3 simultaneous void melee claw specials. Sometimes Graardor died in one attack. I also hopped around worlds to find a new world, having to solo Graardor once or twice. The lack of loot... what can we do about that? Everything is random. Seriously, as an events team we did the best we can with the resources (i.e. players and skills) we were given. And despite this I still thought it went excellently, better than Zamorak GWD way back.

It's too bad none of you stuck around for the end. First of all, due to other commitments I had to join the event 1.5 hours late. Due to that I missed all the confusion and just joined the clan RSW Events said to. Although in 2 hours there were no major drops, it was fun. Then, 2 hours in,with about 19 people in Fergie Angel's CC, we got a BCP drop, 1.2m a person. Because of all the money some people left. When we were down to 5 people we got a shard drop, which after 2 people got targeted and left got split 50k each. Sadly though, 2 of the 3 of us, including me, didn't realize and tellied before we picked it up since Graardor was destroying us. All in all, I would love to do it again but maybe with 15 people or less in a CC. Even with 15 people it shouldn't be too hard to find a world where we are better than any crashers [how many worlds have 5 maxed out accounts in the room, definitely not all]. It was a great event and should be repeated [also it is the least dangerous and easiest to access dungeon so safest money]! - 613angel 03:07, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
I was in Urbancowgurl777's group, as was Scimitar77/Yoda. We got a godsword shard at the very start, which was about 19k per person because very few people had lootshare turned on at that time. Then we got invaded multiple times, but we outlasted them all. Just before I left, we got a chestplate, spread across 16 people for 1.2m each, but that was about 4.5 hours in. I would like to say that this event was definitely better prepared and better run. Trying to find an open world at the start was a pain, but splitting up the larger group across multiple worlds was definitely the right move. The one thing that might be worth some discussion, at least among the Events Team itself, is how to handle people who just show up. Yes, some (most) were crashers who trolled us the whole time they were there, but a couple asked nicely if they could join us. One of the ones who trolled us left and came back, but was then allowed to join. The ones who only asked nicely from the start weren't allowed to join and then quietly went away. I didn't say anything at the time, but that seemed a little wrong, especially by comparison. --Saftzie (talk) 03:17, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
You should have said something then, as I have no idea what or who you're talking about. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 05:26, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
Well, I think any unfairness was the result of information overload (i.e., lots of people who are barely acquaintances chattering in clan and public chats), not any ill-will. But, in general, how should such occurrences be handled? I'm suggesting that the question be pondered at this time, rather than answered. I can appreciate the effort to maintain some kind of control over any event, and random people asking to join could be just another source of chaos. But a wiki event is rather open by nature. The first group of crashers were the rudest. I don't think they'd have joined us even if we asked them. But at one point there were two guys standing outside the door asking if they could be allowed to come in and join us. Truly civil behavior on the Internet can be rare. It seems like the kind of thing to be encouraged and rewarded. --Saftzie (talk) 06:41, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
The reason I turned away some was because, at all times, I had at least 10 people chewing my ear (or eyes in this case) off in private chat, screaming "don't let anyone else in, we're too [email protected]#$", which, at the time, we were. So I took it from a Bandos team stance rather than Wiki event, as the constant bickering of team sizes was annoying enough as it was. Had we been smaller, I would have welcomed then in. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 20:43, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

I think in the future if we do Bandos again let's not do it mid-day US on a Saturday. (wszx) 03:12, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

well, speaking as someone living in the US, I vote 8oclock or later East Coast Time [later if West Coast people need it] - 613angel 03:16, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

I'm inclined to agree with Saftzie about allowing randoms to join if they ask politely; I mean, anyone on the wiki can come to the event, and anyone can join the wiki. I suggest changing the equipment/inventory recommendations for next time. As a Bandos newcomer I followed them pretty closely, and I found that:

  • 1 super attack didn't last long
  • 4 prayer pots seems excessive - using the altar there, I didn't take a single dose
  • The "Bandos veterans" all brought spec weapons instead of excalibur
  • 2 extra familiar pouches aren't much use without a summoning pot (OK, I should have realised this...)

I guess this depends on levels to an extent, but I do think it could be more in line with what the experienced people brought. Stewbasic 16:09, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

It was my first trip and I had a blast, my group ended up leaving and was just two of us(myself and GLL) and we joined with the other group fergie's and ended up getting a 1.2 mil split on Bandos. As far as the orginaization piece, I think the team did fine with what they had to work with but in the future maybe there should be a sign up and teams with cc's divided up beforehand? I think theyre should be a gwd event every month, it would be a lot of fun, I am hooked now and have trouble finding a team. Anima coder 03:04, March 1, 2011 (UTC)

Bandos Trip 26/02/1011[edit source]

I thought it went very well. We got about 3 shard drops 2 being shard 1 and the other being shard 2, I'm also pretty sure I got these drops on vid so I shall be posting them later(ish) (I got to go through about 3 hours of footage) Although we didn't get the prized items we wanted, it was still a fun activity, even if we did get crashed a number of times, also the times for UK players was a bit meeh as we didn't end until an hour into the next day. 10pm to 1am..

At least all the other events are good for people in the UK. I just looked at the Corporal Beast event and it is at a time great for those in the UK but even worse than this event was for those in the US. It seems to me that ~50% of Wiki members, if not more, would rather play at a time suitable for those in the US [whether they be Canadian, American, or even probably East Asian/ Australian] yet most combat and other events take place at a good time for those in the UK. Perhaps someone with the power and the "know-how" could set up a poll for who wants what types of events at what time. (If, for example, the Americans like GWD, half the British like PC and the other half like hide-and-seek, and the Australians like Clan Wars then times could be scheduled to appeal proportionately to those who want them, rather than just those living in/ near the UK) - 613angel 20:47, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
All I have to say about the time is this: We can't satisfy everybody. No matter when we schedule an event, there will always be someone on the exact opposite end of the world who will be asleep at that time. Even if we had a poll that showed a majority of people who would want to go to, say, GWD, were American, that would still leave people out, albeit a smaller amount compared to the majority. But no matter what, someone's going to be left out. We can't have a perfect time for everyone, which is why we hold events at different times every week. Perhaps we'll look into having the same event a few times a week at different times in the future. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 20:54, February 27, 2011 (UTC)
I wasn't demanding a change, I was just trying to raise a point and maybe suggest a solution. I looked at the previous and upcoming events calendars and didn't see a single event that started [some, like this one finished] in the 5 hour window I can play on a Saturday [this is out of 24 hours so it is approximately 1/5 of the day]. While for some events, such as this, nothing was lost by joining an an hour or two late, other events, such as the hide-and-seek are over by then. Normally I wouldn't complain but just assume most people live in other parts of the world, but it seems all of the fun events [from my point of view, not necessarily others'] are scheduled at bad times for the Western Hemisphere (just check the poll above). = 613angel 23:34, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

BANDOS 2-26-11[edit source]

The loot wasn't great, but the event was fun! Soon after I left a Bandos Chestplate was dropped, [RAGEEEEEEE] but the 5 and 1/2 hours at bandos was good. Was glad to be there. VVins tries to steal tankings! >.> KRAZYASIAN08 O_o KRAZY? who? 21:02, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

???[edit source]

what were the drops??? i only stayed for 2 hours and didn't get good drops... i didn't like the fact that lots of people kept talking on the clan chat so much(it should be set so a sertain rank can talk, so people can hear the instructions and not read about other's boredom.) other than that it was fun :D --Qazwsx753421 04:34, March 2, 2011 (UTC) (forgot signature)

Drops for Fergie Angel's CC: 1 BCP [4.5 hours in, right before practically everyone left to bank the 1.2m they got out of it] and 2 shards [one in the beginning and one about 20 minutes after the BCP drop, after which everyone remaining left to bank] plus the regular junk and rune items - 613angel 00:19, March 3, 2011 (UTC)
