Alimar.8760 Posted November 5, 2018 Share Posted November 5, 2018 Now that Halloween is coming to a close, by far I've found it the best of its kind since it's debut right after the games release. I wanted to post this so we can discuss what we enjoyed, what we disliked, and what we wish we could add to the festival next year. Offer suggestions, comments, and ideas.I enjoyed:The return of Reapers Rumble and a beetle track on the same map.The addition of decorations to the guild hallThe addition of holiday decorations and merchants outside of every major city in the starter areas.I disliked:How the beetle track was not a new or dedicated map designed around the beetle, but a race track for beetle built around an existing map.No return of the Mad Prince's story missions or dungeons. It would be nice to have these back as well.The lack of significantly interesting guild hall decorations.Comments:I enjoyed the raceway. But despite that I couldn't help but dislike the map even though I dedicated time to be able to do the race under 50 seconds. It just feels clunky and unwieldy. It shows what you can do with a map that isn't dedicated to the beetle. (Which is make a very hard race.) But I feel the implementations and expectations of it's announcement and subsequent release could have been done better.)I've mentioned before that I couldn't wait for Reaper's Rumble to come back. Now that I've done it, Reaper's Rumble feels very slow. And there seems to be a lack of player base in the game type like many other festival games. Seems I'm only playing with one or two other people unless it's a daily. The lack of significant decorations in the guild hall were interesting. I enjoyed the flowers and the casket. The giant ribs seem another matter. They seem designed for maybe beetle but outside of making a large beetle track using these decorations I hesitate to see how they can be used. Feel free to offer suggestions!Suggestions:We can't do much with the raceway, let it keep its difficulty. Halloween has had famously hard content like the clock tower. Let it stand as something to master for next year. Reapers Rumble and other subsequent pvp holiday games should get a rewards update and maybe help people do matchmaking. Increasing the rewards would help encourage people to play them on occasions and a main reason I like these holiday games is to play with friends in a non serious pvp environment. Perhaps allow guild's to queue into a map together. Although I see this as being potentially impossible with current coding and infrastructure.Decorations! There are so many possibilities of assets that already exist and we get giant ribs, a casket and flowers! They're great but I'd like to offer other ideas. All the decorations used for the holiday area outside each major city should be made into a decoration: https://imgur.com/a/lpPhvSF Piles of gourds, a large stage, pumpkin lights, large pumpkin tent, hay bales, small round orange and black tent, a cart with pumpkins. These would all be excellent decorations in the guild halls and the assets are already there. I would also like to offer piles of candy corn and the different trees, doors, and gravestones in Lions Arch, and creepy fences likened to the small walls we jump over in the labyrinth. That's what I have. What suggestions do you guys have? Let's give this Halloween a good sendoff. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
