OP  12/16/12 11:32:35 AM#1

I play MMOs to get immersed in a universe that is far removed from reality.

Now every year, in literally every single MMO out there, they annoy the crap out of me

with these Halloween and Christmas updates.

Seriously now, what the hell?

I'm not playing games to be constantly reminded that some superstitious ritual is going on around me.

There is a simple reason i'm actually playing the game - to espace reality.

If you absolutely must have season events, come up with some interesting lore,

but please please please with sugar on top,

stop reminding me of the shit that i'm trying to get away from.

 

Christmas in GW2? - Vomit!

Snow flakes and christmas trees in WoW? - Bite me!

Fricking snow ball launchers in Eve? - What the frack?

Halloween masks in Rift? - Are you kidding me..

 

How do you folks think about this?

I think seasonal events are great. Games are about having fun, and they are a good way to have fun.

I don't like that holliday events seem to be a requirement instead of a fun thing that is added to the game, just because.

 

However; when creating a world, the people in that world will have holidays and seasonal events. In a Traditional fantasy setting, there will probaby be some sort of harvest festival, a winter solstice festival, a spring renewal or fertility festival.

 

So I can see Dev's creating these events if it creates the feeling of a living world. But if the devs are just going down a checklist: ""We have to have Halloween event, check, Christmas event, check, Valentine event, check..." Then I am with you and would rather they just didn't.

Look no further, we have found the Grinch! It's silly and people find them fun, as with all things in life; If it's not harming anyone, do what you want!

Just because you have some allergy to fun does not mean the rest of us do.

This hits it right on the head.

I'm totally onboard with events that are based on the games lore.

But don't throw some stupid christmas stuff into a setting where it doesn't belong.

It really gets on my nerves. I loathe religious holidays and it upsets me to have to endure them.

I think it's an immersion breaker to base it so closely on RL festivities. If it actually fitted the lore or logic of the virtual world I'd be more for them. Instead I can hear the whispers of marketing dept. planning how much of a bump in promotional publicity will occur to warrant the extra dev input, when these things are announced, real or imagined. Personally think there should be MORE festival dates in RL, like they have in India, but that's another story... ;)

The rule of thumb is that if content were any good, they'd make it available permanently, not only briefly for seasonal events.  Thus, seasonal events intrinsically mean wasting precious development time on content that isn't any good.

There is also the issue that real-life time dependence in order to do content is very, very bad game design that should be avoided whenever possible.  Seasonal events put in such real-life time dependence gratuitously.

I hate them generally.  If I am playing a character that is maxed out it does give  me something to do though.  Generally a thumbs down.  I would rather have the time spent on other content.

I am not sure if I agree with your thumb.

But I do agree, at this point much of the seasonal holiday events are generic and don't fit the lore so I would rather the dev's put their resources into something else. (Or creating more immersive events)

Love season events, but the ones who are more detached from the usual events.

 

i.e. TSW is doing it right, Halloween was unique and Christmas event is in fact a world ending event.

That´s the way I like it.

 

But I´m kind of disappointed about TOR and the meager "life day" thing they are doing. A handful of items in the cash shop and free fireworks is  "meh". I loved Lifeday in SWG, that was always fun.

I have to agree.

I strongly dislike real world calender events intruding in game.

If the game wants to have it's own seasonal or event based holidays that fit into the lore and look like they belong (not like they are forced in) then I would have no issue.

The funny thing is, TSW is the one MMO where traditional holiday events would fit, since it takes place in our own world (Or an alternate shard of our world) So it's ironic that they're the game that is foregoing the traditional Christmas event for something original that fits their lore.

Don't get me wrong - i'm not against season events.

I'm against season events that are rooted in the REAL WORLD,

especially the religious kind that make my blood boil.

 

These companies invest a lot of sweat and money to immerse you in their strange world and lore,

just to smack you in the face every single year with "Look! It's Christmas".

Which in 99% of the case has absolutely nothing to do with the game.

They simply throw overboard all the crap they went through just to give you some snow balls,

a christmas tree and some stupid halloween boss or whatnot.

It's annoying, it's completely disconnected from the game setting and in my personal case it offends my intellect to

have to deal with these primitive and superstitious traditions.

I used to liek special events but then I played Rift where there was a special event all the time and usually only a slight variation of the previous one.That pretty much burnt me out on such events....if they are happening all the time they are no longer "Special".

The voice in my head when reading this went to Darth Vader for some reason. "You will sublimate my rage by sacrificing kittens!" I don't see it as all that serious. There are all kinds of beliefs that people have that I find ridiculous every day, but they certainly don't make me angry. At the end of the day it's just a game. If it makes your "blood boil" as you say, it may be best to simply walk away from it.
