ArenaNet Staff Chris Cleary.8017 Posted May 28, 2019 ArenaNet Staff Share Posted May 28, 2019 Hey all,The World Boss Rush was a fantastic success. The reception and feedback from our players were beyond what we ever imagined.We’re now a few weeks after the ending of Season 4 and closer to the release of the next raid, so we are shipping in the 5/28 release everything necessary for our next event, Meta Event Rush. It will run from June 4th 10 AM PST to June 11th 10 AM PST, and you can find more about it on this Blog Post.As I previously mentioned on the forums (Here), your feedback speaks volumes and we have made some changes that we feel are for the best based on this feedback. World Meta Event will grant additional rewards for successfully completing specific Meta Events, and you can find further details on the Wiki (Meta-Event Rush).We’ve implemented a Tiered Community Goal as a part of this event. The Community’s progress towards the goal will be displayed in-game and will update every 15 minutes. There are 5 tiers for this event, all of which have goals set for the community to accomplish.All of the Community Goal Tiers will have different rewards and anyone who has participated in the end of a Meta Event will get these rewards when/if they log in during the World Meta Event. These rewards are available for a limited time while the World Meta Event is running.We’ve also drastically changed the Bonus Box and how many you receive for completing Meta Events. The idea is that doing these events should feel rewarding and that they should also feel good to open. As a reminder, rewards that come out of the box will stack (where applicable) with the same items in your inventory.Here’s a Preview of the Bonus Box:Again, all of the info on this event can be found on our Wiki – Here (Meta-Event Rush).On top of changes to the reward boxes, we’ve also added a cooldown on how often you can get Bonus Boxes from the same event. There will be a 15-minute cooldown buff placed on your character that is specific to the Meta Event that they completed. If your character completes this Meta Event while having this buff, they will not receive the Bonus Boxes again.I also want to note that, for this version of the World Meta Event, we did not have enough time to make any changes to the Defend events that occur as a part of the Arah Metas. These defend events will kick off like normal after a successful attack and do not have additional rewards for completing them. It is our intention to address this if we run another event that targets the Arah Meta attack events, but we won’t be able to do that for this event.Our next Special Event, that is not too far out, will be for World vs World. It will significantly “swap” up the gameplay and shake it to its “core” (for that reset). More to come as we get closer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
