Photo-Receptor Focus on: Guild Events
Keeping your guild members interested and engaged when there isn’t a lot of new content can be a very challenging and creative process. We’re always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to have Guild Sponsored Events that will be fun and bring folks in.
More after the jump…
One of our biggest problems, for me anyway, is the lack of toys and costumes to use in-game. We are working on some ideas to combat that though.
We’ve already done some popular events, but I’m always on the lookout for new ideas. Some of ours have either been done with good success or are in the planning stages.
Pod or Speeder Race on Tatooine. This planet still makes me feel like I’m in the movies and I love questing here. The idea of setting up a race where all entrants can run a course would be a lot of fun. This is still in the planning stages.
The Great Costume Contest. What we’ve come up with for this is to try to look like a character from one of the movies. I miss having lots of colors and styles that could make this a super fun event. However, we do have some options that could result in a fun time. (You didn’t really think I’d miss a chance to get fashion in, did you?)
PVP against our guild’s opposite faction. We have a big event scheduled soon and this should be loads of fun. Hopefully, everyone will have a blast trying to kill the other side’s leader, while protecting our own.
The Party. I’ve always loved guild get-togethers, but I like themes like picnics and Halloween and such. A variation on this theme is an award show. These tend to be very large, scripted events that take me a long time to plan, write, rehearse and put together. Loads of fun, though.
Pet Hunting. This has been quite successful for us recently, as we work on getting different pets for groups who haven’t yet gotten them.
Getting Datacrons. Another popular event in our guild is getting datacrons for one or two planets done. We’ve also hosted an open +10 Datacron event for our server, which was a lot of fun, too.
Special Speeders. Doing the different things required to get the Aratechs has been a lot of fun, even though I’m not done, yet.
These are some of the things we’ve been doing, but I’m really interested to hear what your guild is doing. What events do you enjoy?
That’s my two credits. What’s yours?
