Future-Plans.png

This event type is one of two event types that we currently have. This is the third iteration of the Co-op type event and our Winter event was the first iteration of the Gifting type event. We'll be making adjustments to each event type in order to improve them each year.

Here are some plans for improvements for future co-op type events that we've accumulated with the feedback from hosting this event!
  • In order to reduce stress, we're planning to outline more clearly the amount of play/effort required to obtain rewards in events going forward.
  • We'll be looking to avoid awarding duplicate event items as rewards for different aspects of the event while keeping them accessible to all participants.
  • We're planning to do a rework of the Co-op event type to achieve the following:
    • Allow more freedom to do the tasks you want to do by having tasks and points passively track from the start of the event.
    • Incorporate more of a co-op element to the event by adjusting tasks and the main event bar.
    • Add a new mechanic unique to this event type that isn't simply highlighting existing site mechanics.

Our next event will be a Fall event some time in October! We'll be launching our first iteration of a whole new event type. We've decided to forego the Summer event this year due to the Spring event having been delayed into summer, this should give us a bit of a headstart on the upcoming Fall festivities and allow us to get on schedule.

You're fondly watching the sun set with the First Mate
and Johaness beside the ship's newly patched hull. It's a
rare moment of quiet after the ruckus of reconstruction.

Johaness looks wistfully content, gazing with bright eyes
into the horizon. No doubt, a new point of wonder has
alighted in the oceans for his daydreams and hopes
for the future.

    I loved the event, and I love the changes you guys are planning, I think the fall event will be even better! Thank you for everything you do!

    In terms of "stress," this event was less work than past events, so thanks for that. I'm fine with skipping the Summer Event, though I wonder if there are still recurring seasonal items you should put up for sale for a week or two before summer is gone? I forget what Summer 2020 was like, to be honest! Terrible memory, lol. Was that when we helped Lilia and Fantasia do their Festival/Carnival type thing? ;P
