    Indeed, no idea what is taking them so long. It was supposed to be a recurring event.

    +1 for this, still got a bone to pick with Liadri.

    If you want X, and Y is needed to get get X, you also have to want Y if you really want X. If you don't want Y, you don't want X. It's easy.

  • it would be nice to get the sovereign wep skins

  • Dam, and I just deleted my tickets to make room for my inventory. oh well.

    Would be nice to have more hybrid plant and regular clothing for fashion wars or more plant armor.

    A-net bring it back unless we let them know we want it back.

    We want it back A-net!!!!!!

  • They would have to make adjustments for the power creep that HoT and PoF brought. if not they would be face roll easy.

    It was definitely fun! I hope it sees the light of day again!

    Yes and no... Divinity Reach got way too many recurring events already. I would much rather see other racial cities get some love with their own recurring events too.

    TBH that is something that has always puzzled me with GW2.. none of the other major cities get any real attention when it comes to events..
    Maybe something like a grouse season event.. where the Asuran council are the grouse.
    But yeah All the major races need some event love in there specific home cities.

    Modifying the health and damage output of the stuff should be easy enough. I think they probably have to repair the whole event like they did for SAB to even work again. Anet tends to break old content when making updates :(
    But I am sick of tired of wintersday and halloween. Anet better revive old events we didnt have in a long time

  • YES!! +1 vote for Queen's Gauntlet!

  • Kain Francois.4328Kain Francois.4328 Member ✭✭✭

    We need a summer festival. Agreed.

  • Brother.1504Brother.1504 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Didn’t scarlet jack the original festival? Anet would have to adjust the event accordingly.

  • As the title asks, is there any hope from the devs about bringing back the Queen's Gauntlet? I only ask because this year would in game time mark her 15th Jubilee and many newer players have never experienced it the previous two times it was up.
    

    Fort Aspenwood forever!
    36 characters!

  • Would love to have some of the old events back but think the powers that be in DR are to aware that every time they have something special someone attacks them. So maybe they decided to forgo it for now and rather watch the fireworks from Lake Doric. Fear though that was like most of season 1 stuff and no longer compatible with the current city :<

    I would take out the tabs and any spaces in the starting of each line to get rid of that pesky format. I did that a couple times really annoying when all I want is to have nice spaces before I start my sentences.

    Edit: Also I would like to see the return of the tournament with some new additions for the old vets to do something besides playing for old time's sake.

    Would be nice to have more hybrid plant and regular clothing for fashion wars or more plant armor.

    I agree that they should have there own holidays but I would still like to see the gauntlet return...

    @crepuscular.9047
    For the Grove we could get that event where we had to hunt those mordorn down. I still got a bunch of that event currency in my bank.😕

    Last time I tried to do Liadri was back when I had a really crappy internet connection, so timing the dodges with some latency issues, especially when they required near perfection, didn't really work out for me. Now that I've since upgraded, I'm keen for a rematch. XD

    But in all honesty, I do sometimes wonder why ANet doesn't bring back some old, recurring events. We also used to have the Bazaar of the Four Winds, and while it's certainly understandable from a story standpoint why that stopped for a while, there's no reason why it can't be written back into the story again as a seasonal event. I see no reason why all those assets and all that content should be created, only for it to be tucked away in a proverbial storeroom, never to see the light of day again. It seems like a waste of effort/resources to me.

  • I realize that there may be problems bringing it back, but it would be very nice to be able to have this be a recurring festival..(IMO)

    no! i want to stay special with my title and mini pet :p B)

    I want Queens Jubilee back too, as well as the Zephyrites, they’ve had plenty of time to rebuild, I expect them to be ready to trade again!!

    I personally feel like there’s a lack of festivals in GW2, imo we should have at least one per main city, would also give us some nice reoccurijg activities to do as the years go on.

    The gauntlet was an instanced area anyway so it shouldn't be hard to update. The zephyrites are all scattered so their story has ended. Dragon bash would be fun to bring back too.

    New mount skins?! Anet take my money!

    Funny enough, I have two of those skins unlocke, although I never participated in the Queen's Gauntlet. So I suppose there is/was some other way to get your hands on those at some point.

    The whole Pavilion event was its own map/instance, but the Gauntlet itself was just part of that map. You were in a little domed area over the main floor. Other players could watch your fights, and you had to queue up and wait for your turn to fight.

    Oh look. I have a signature now.

    I'm quite aware as I was there both times, it was under what we now call the pavilion.

    Well, if you think about it, it kinda makes sense... The events are all continuations from the GW1 ones. Which are all justified within the human culture, hence Humans have more festivals.
    But they could easily have a true Meatoberfest in October for the Charr.
    A Arbour day celebration for Sylvari.
    A Solistice/equinox festival for Norn.
    And they could move Wintersday to Rata Sum, since it's about Asuras (Tixx), even though they already have SAB.

    I would like it, too, but the elites would force toughness and vitality increases.

    Maybe forbid (forcefully unequip) ascended and legendary gear as well as block out elite specializations.

    I should copywrite that.

    Gotcha. I think my cold-addled brain misread your original comment somehow. My bad. :p

    Or they could just downlevel your equipment. To many people would be pissed off about having to buy exotic armor otherwise.

    I think downleveling would be a great idea and make it easy on the devs.
