Another week, and another set of player-made events. Its a Player versus Player heavy listing today, so lets get those blasters loaded, that armor polished, and those adrenals injected! A dueling event and some World PvP to sate your bloodlust for another week. As always, we got a poll down below and if you have an event or guild you would like us to cover, send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “Community” and the name of the guild or event.
Open World PvP!
Bloody, violent, and completely unrestrained! Open world PvP out on Ilum between two vast armies, whose only goal is to beat the snot out of the opposing faction! This is a straight-forward brawl; no rules, no story, and no regulations on who can and cannot come. Its open to anyone and everyone, so if you like PvP, come on out and take part. Even better, this is a recurring event, so be sure take part whenever its held. The next brawl will be on September 9th, 8-9:30 eastern time. Imperial players contact Trixxy or Microx and Republic players contact Ravennia for invites on the night.

1v1 PvP Duels, round 2!
A few weeks ago, I mentioned a 1v1 Duel Tournament on The Fatman server hosted by an Imperial guild called Chosen Elite. Their guild leader Wolfshade told me that they planned to have a second, bigger duel soon. On September 9th, this double elimination-style tournament will return, with million of credits up for grabs. Theres no entrance fee, and only Buffs, Stims, and Relics are permitted in the fights. Be sure to read the official forum topic for all the details and to sign up for the fight.
Have fun and remember to fight well. Even if you’re not fighting, come on out and support your friends and the server. The last time they tried this, it was entirely experimental but ended up being a great success. This time, it’ll be bigger, and I wish them luck in continuing this event. Below is a video posted by youtube user ArkonzoaGaming covering the first half of their original duel tournament.
Chosen Elite is an Imperial 16-player PvE guild over on The Fatman server, who also PvP’s quite heavily in their free time. They have cleared a number of Operations and are quite skilled in that aspect of the game, but that is not why I am highlighting them in this column.
This group of players has gone out of their way to support Player vs. Player activities by hosting duel tournaments on their server, using Credits they earned on their own to reward the winners. Their reasoning behind hosting this event was simply to help bring the players on the server together during a lull in activity, as well as give both PvP and PvE players something fun to do. Their first attempt was an amazing success and this next one is sure to please.
If you see these guys around, thank them for supporting events on their server.
Thank you everyone who voted! Looks like the majority of people go with a combination of all the options, or simply what looks cool. Though I’m curious what is considered “awesome” from player to player, I’m glad to see the interesting results. I tend to be a mix of everything that looks cool as well. My trooper has a PvP helmet, quest reward chest piece and random assortments of adaptive and quest gear. The result is a mercenary-looking soldier with a blood splatter on his metallic-looking helmet; quite terrifying when storming towards someone.
But onto something new! I’m curious about how you all think about roleplaying. Now, hear me out, its not exactly what you think. I have seen a mix of player-made events, both involving roleplaying and those not involving roleplaying. My question for those that do partake in events, do you mind the ones that have an RP angle to them? Backstory? Those part of a larger story? Even those where roleplaying is part of the event? Let me know your opinions in the comments below!
Poll Question - Single Choice

- I’ll do the event but not roleplay. 7.1%
- I’ll attend the event, but only to watch it. 3.6%
