Bonus Maps

Postby [GM]Scar » Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:48 am

Dear Players,

Instead or routine Bossing events and manually conducted events, we are Introducing the Automated Event System. This feature is Exclusive to A3 Mania and you will not find it anywhere else. :D

We have planned an Event called Bonus Map Event.

Bonus Map will be a special map which contains special bosses with better drops. This event will be conducted randomly. There is no fixed time for the Event to Occur.

This Event will be conducted automatically by our servers during a random time. To notify the start of the Event, Few shouts will be send by our Automated Announcement System. Once the Event has started you can Teleport to the Forge of Egonil from Colororence

In the Bonus Map, you can hunt the bosses for good drops. You will be allotted a Time of 15 minutes of hunting in the Map. After the 15 minutes expire, you will be automatically returned to Town.

The event will be conducted automatically. It will be recurring event with no specific Time. It will be totally Random. We have introduced this method so that It can act as a Stand alone event which doesn't require GM involvement, and having a Random time will help people who are under different time zones.

Hope this Event will be a success! :yahoo: :-bd

The Testing part of the Event has finished. The event Entry and Exit systems are working beautifully.

I will be adding the Event and the Creeps to the Bonus Map on the next server restart.

1 question scar... what kind of Creeps will be there in map? I Hope a rb0 guys don't have to fight with Graybone.. And what about pk? Good bosses with better drops will surely stir the basic animal instinct of the power players..

i would like to add my 2 cent to this, bossing events are usually most enjoyed by High damage dealing characters as the drops goes to the one who made the most damage on a boss (or so as per my understanding). cases like this end up with non aura and lower RB characters going empty handed after the event.

i will be nice if u guys can do something about this. mages and archers have comparable damage so do Hks and warriors. if there are separate maps for these 2 groups, may be everyone can enjoy event in a better way.

well that's all i have to say here, looking forward for event implementation :)

I would say keep uniqs for eshops .. If uniqs are dropped now and then everywhere in an event which happens randomly, then everyone will have one or other uni in hand and will be selling uniqs very cheap in Ingame shops..and consequently no one will buy from e-shop.. stabs/catalyst/crystals are more than enough.. soon we will see all chars in Mania in full G9 that way .. let me tell u a good saying "If you wish to keep a stable economy then make people STARVE " .. cruel but true :P
