I have been working incursions for my cash lately and I am very pleased that you have made a decent path for making cash in high sec. And when I heard I was close to a live event in Kador Prime, I hustled over there for the chance at something new and maybe make another nice stack of cash.

Boy I couldn't have been more wrong. After three hours of sitting in a forming fleet then an hour of the actual live event. I got no reward for risking my ship in defense of the empire. None, Nada, Zip, Zilch. Only the warm feeling of helping my fellow Capsuleer. In other words... A COMPLETE WASTE OF MY TIME! Please consider rewarding pilots for completing live events or they will stop showing up. I know I will never waste my time like that again.

Clearly, the thought that you saved New Eden from the Sansha should be enough.

Greedy.

Im sure your girlfriend will be happy knowing that you think having a warm feeling from helping others is a complete waste of time.


Oh wait.....

What activities do you consider not to be a waste of time in Eve?

Your reward is having been there, and interacting with live actors who represent NPC factions, your reward was the opportunity to have some awesome battle at the expense of the efforts made by CCP staff.

If you were looking for "fat loot", then EvE is not for you.

Then "eve" is not for me? You would have me dislike all of eve because of not liking the return from live events? Preposterous.

Eve is all about the fat loot, and screwing over people to get it.

oh boy, where do i begin...Confused

Fat loot, yes! from where? from people, yes!

But you guys are interacting with NPCs brought to live by CCP actors.....they are advancing the very fabric of storyline that surrounds your gaming experience.

EvE is everyone vs everyone....and in this case, against a living backdrop. Did you obtain fat loot from all the ships killed in the Event either by the NPC or other players? if yes, then good for you, if no, try harder next time.

Did you expect to earn a "token reward" for putting up with CCP actors and following their mischiefs? hell no....they were there for you, not the other way around.

geez

It's one thing to not like the live event. For me personally, I'll pass. Many of us won't bother with it.....

It's another entirely to make a post about it in hopes that others will agree with you.


In short, if you don't like them, don't go. Just keep your yap shut around people that might actually enjoy the experience.

I thought you're supposed to get LP with Concord? Open up your journal and switch to the Loyalty Points tab and look there.

I was very disappointed in the live event. Sure it was fun shooting a dev. Twisted Evil But there should have been at least some LP payout from Concord. I for one will probably not participate in a live event again until this gets addressed.

For some, the live event IS the reward.

Word up, 'yo!

To bad it took you this long to figure it out. I figured it out back in 1999-2000 during EQ playing days. Hundreds of people show up at the mention of a GM figure being present, zone lags out, ass hats striving for attention and just being ass hats to ruin other peoples day. Public open events are a waste of time, don't bother as their is very little reward for you time other then a thank you and great act you put on.

Errrm - how many time have you been able to shoot a supercap in high sec? I think there's many who would gank their granny to get such a kill on their killboard.


Sheesh!

It was fun for me the first time, but I don't think I will bother participating in another event unless there is some kind of reward. Maybe just better drops from the SC would be enough to get more people interested.

ATT'N: CCP

Please ignore the OP and the other shallow, whiny, over-entitled, petulant little babies in this thread.

Live events are cool and fun, and add depth to an already wonderfully deep universe and its' lore, please keep it up. Emergent universe-lore is emergent, we like this!

Also, it gave me a chance to see that you guys really have been paying attention to fixing lag--this would have been utterly unplayable for me 6 months to a year ago--now just fix the atrociously buggered-up sound-engine (it's never been right, since Apocrypha, which otherwise remains to this day your best expansion).

Oh, and thanks for giving me a chance to wh**e the killmail for this Cool

^^That's good enough for me!^^ugh

EDIT: Next time I'll be sure to bring more--a lot more--of the right damage-type torpedoes for my Stealth Bomber so I don't run out, and can score higher damage, tooWink

EVE has sound?, you must not remember the olden days(where sound broke all the time)

other than that
I always miss GM events :(
