Nothing big and time consuming like putting together that halloween event, but something like maybe a weekly spleef tournament, where every user pays $50 to join and the winner gets all of the entry money.

Or possibly the same but in the normal arena?

Just something to bring the community closer together i think would be a pretty cool idea, but what's everyone elses opinions on this?

Id like to see a mod or someone added to the staff to become an Event Manager as well as a normal staff member. That would mean that while they still help out the server, it becomes there job and they wont have to make up extra time for it when playing MC.

Before Alex used to run these events very often but it seems that since then we havent done as much event wise.

I think it would have to be a moderator, as its hard to organize these things with no power and people don't listen that well. Like Derpy Monday which Hell had every now and then was nuts and fun but that might've been a bit too much. But something similar would be great Very Happy

And things like CTF I miss. Love doing warfare. As well as spleefing. We could have like spleef tournaments every now and then or just plain games. I don't think the Spleef Monastery is even that much in use right now even silent

But I've thought about it too and its a good idea. Great for getting the server together as one and having fun and not being hermits in each town. I could dedicate myself to doing something like this if the spot becomes open.

PostSubject: MORE EVENTS...   31/10/2011, 03:34

I do agree that the server should have more events, it does get a little boring just building endlessly, but the last couple of days have been very exciting and fun due to the enable-ing of mobs! and the halloween maze puzzle. GOOD TIMEZZ! i would love to have more of these types of things and maybe CTF. It would be good if there was like some sort of person that would be in charge of arranging events now and again just to give flux that extra bit of fun and excitement. > i would love to be that person Wink
(ps. speef is awesome!)

I agree with honkin, Esk, Zelos and DX290. There should be more events that the whole server can participate in. Maybe there should be regular events like a spleef tournament once a week or fortnight (something like that, doesn't have to be spleef) and then during big holidays like Christmas there should be a Big event that is voted on and decided by the community and then, with the help of admins/mods, the user/s that came up with the idea should be put in-charge of its development.

Just a thought anyway. It could work, eventually Smile

having competitions would be great, its just sometimes hard to plan around real life =D
I will see how many people are on tomorrow and maybe I can start a spleef tourney for money. Which would you rather have, where everyone paid to be in it and winner(s) take all? or just a main cash prize awarded by me?

Well Id say just make it a main cash prize like alex used to do, it makes it easier for both player and admin, rather than having people standing around as you try and explain to someone that they need to pay.

I agree. If it was always PvP it would get a bit dull after a while. Now, I had an idea; its very highly speculative and most likely not ever going to happen.

My thought was that, say about once or twice a year, we change the map to a custom adventure map that people find on the Minecraft forums or where ever. We pick out a hand full and then have a raffle type thing to decide which users will participate (there would have to be a limit, maybe 5 or 6, as it would be a bit hectic if there were 30 users playing a map designed for SSP. Unless we did the Super Hostile Series). Then the chosen participants would all vote on the map they want to do.

Sounds easy when its put like that but I'm sure it would be a pain in the ass for Harry to set up, so no pressure on do it, just a thought.

Not only would this be a pain to set up, but can you imagine the fuss people would have about not being able to play Flux OR the adventure if they didn't win? If we had a multiverse it might be an idea, or if someone wants to donate the use of their private server, but as it's set now, I can already hear the complaints lol. I dunno, I like the concept of the idea, but not the thought of trying to deal with it's execution.

I say just set up warzone again. The one thing I probably miss the most about old flux. Having big wars split between the server. Made my "nothing to do so I'm gonna sit inside all day although its sunny and I'm on vacation at my moms place in Turkey" days not so boring Very Happy


A big no to the adventure things. Causes way too much effort and lag. Plus there aren't that many cool maps anymore and especially none which there's more than 2 people allowed.

Yes, I understand. I never thought it would work but better to try and not succeed than not try at all right?

(as a side note: I do have my own private server, its just a small thing with a few friends, and I would gladly offer its use to Flux if need be. That does not just apply in this instance. If ever the Flux community needs a temporary home, I will be glad to offer my services. After all, you all deserve it for being such an awesome group of people.)
