I think the Equinox (Solstices are for summer and winter, Equinoxes are for spring and fall) would be better? I think St. Patrick's Day is only really celebrated heavily in the US. (Well, and Ireland of course, but I don't know if we have any Irish members...) I admittedly don't know for sure, but I know the Equinox is planet-wide, even if it's going to be Fall in the southern hemisphere.

Thank you for the awesome Valentine's Event~ Though I didn't get enough posts in either roleplay to warrant a prize, I'm glad that it at least spurred me to do a roleplay that I have thought about doing for awhile. Plus, the prizes were pretty awesome for those that did get their hands on them. <3

Personally, I am totally vying for a White Day event, as I always thought such a thing would be pretty awesome.

A St. Patrick's Day event, or some odd variant of it, could also be good. It may not have to be specially St. Patrick's Day, but it could be based around luck or something. Similar to how Evelon's Thanksgiving is called "Thanks for life Day," with its own plot with man eating turkey beasts. xD;

The Equinoxes and Solstices could also be good to celebrate, or perhaps April Fools Day? Not sure how an event for a day of pranks would work, but it seems neat. (Actually, a luck day and a prank day, they could kind of go together. xD;)

The idea of using different holidays from different places, in general, seems neat. We already sort of celebrate things on Evelon that aren't celebrated entirely world wide, so I don't see why we can't toss other things in there.

I've always wanted to see one of those "escape from the room using whatever is in your surroundings" games on Evelon o3o So if you ever created one of those, I'd be totally down with it : D

Just popping in here to say White day seems like another Valentines day :l and I consider it rather redundant. It would be exactly like role playing another Valentines day only the girls give gifts. Which would also be at the Falls.

Thanks for life day always made me nervous. Cause it meant I was risking possibly loosing a pet in the process and I was nervous about the possibility of loosing a gon or a cain which is something not easily replaced XD;;. Pretty much all of the RE2 things are luck wise normally. Which is why a major luck based event like the Thanks for life day thing, makes me extremely nervous.

I like the way last years St Patrick's day was done with the color the picture with the code (although I know that was not an RE thing). XD Those are kinda a relief from the norm... So we could maybe do a puzzle game like that with RE with maybe 3 puzzles with two pieces each? Although it may get hectic.

I like the idea of celebrating the Equinoxes and Solstices. It has a lot of potential for a variety of pet designs but its a seasonal thing so it may also clash with Christmas, Halloween and Easter since they have season based pets... But again we lack a summer event so yeah it could still work. We however can't (at least I am pretty sure we can't) do anything with the Ipinox though. So don't expect any new colors or anything of them.

Something that could be fun too. Is an alien based event. XD
Or even a new appearance of a mythical ruin that only appears once in a blue moon or something, or say maybe something like Atlantis or the dragon palace.

There really aren't any major holidays around the Summer Solstice, so it would be an excellent choice for big RE2 events, I think. Spring has Easter, Fall has Halloween, and Winter has everything, but Summer is nice and open.

Eh. I must have missed those the previous years. However XD I don't like having pets with characters or possible ideas for characters removed either. Since I have been building up a stash or more normal pets to use as characters it still makes me nervous.

Also wondering if this includes pets with add ons now... :l;;

I'll take your suggestions on board even though... this isn't the right thread for it, since I'm more likely to lose them here. x'D

Image

However, the main announcement here is, remember this guy? He's baaaaack, and with his usual game!
I'd like to mention that I've changed the game style a bit and changed the prize system, so be sure to read up on that. Also! Elie included some new prizes for you this year! They're pretty rare, so don't expect to find much of them.

Okay lol. So. It's June now, how did that happen. I'm sorry. ;n; But. Okay. So I'm sending out prizes and I'd like to reveal to you a new prize.
Image

This little thing here is Elie's special gift, and it allows you to redeem it for one free egg matching the type depicted on the coupon. To redeem it, all you need to do is PM  Kyrit and post the image of the coupon in the message.
I'll be getting around to prizes shortly, so if you haven't received yours yet, don't fret, it will be around soon. It's all rolled, it's just sending everything out and recording things that is taking forever. I apologise about the wait.

I'm also... not sure what to do with the retro eggs to be honest. Did you guys actually want access to retro pets? I assumed the low attendance had something to do with the prizes, so I'm wondering if it's worth setting it up. What are your thoughts?

Also, I've changed my location to reflect my online activity. Just as a quick reference just so you all understand that work isn't being done to IRL getting in the way, or if I'm actually just being lazy. I dunno. Hopefully it will serve to explain inabilities to work.

I've kind of been hoping some of the birthday and event pets would be added to the retro list, to be honest. Something I've wanted to do for a while is buy more Leplora to add to my hoard (I want 100 of them, and yes, I am that crazy), but without a retro event distributing them, that won't happen.

D= I definitely want retro pets! I only partcipated because of the retro pets, after all. I think the main problem was that the event ran during exam time. Maybe it should start earlier and end Easter instead of starting around Easter to avoid that problem? I dunno about US exam times, to be honest.

And I agree - more pets would be nice. Birthday pets and maybe even wild pets would be amazing. =D And well, next year, we'll have new war pets, yes? I'm pretty sure this war will end with everyone liking a lot of prize pets, even from the side they didn't pick, so I could imagine that participation next year will be much higher to get war pets.

I admit, though, that the new system that basically gave you the max output at a certain number of posts did nothing at all to motivate me. 8| I liked the system in the prior year so much more! It's limiting in so many ways - on one hand, it's unfair towards two-person RPs since the max output is reached at the same number, no matter how many people contribute. On the other hand, having more people and relying on posting order and being so damn dependant on people who might not be online is also annoying. Besides, I like clear things. One post = One egg. That's good. I can understand that, that's crystal-clear. But X posts = Undetermined amount of eggs? That's not good.

I definitely had not half as much fun this year because of one thing: Once the max number of posts was reached, my partners lost complete interest in the RP and didn't reply anymore without there being any closure to the storyline. That frustrated me so much that I didn't participate anymore in the last round (that and the fact that someone who has PMed me about sharing a slot had grabbed one and then didn't even use it - I kinda had waited a few days there for nothing and then it was too late anyway). During the "One post = One egg" times, everyone posted until last minute. That was fun. This year...not so much.

Sorry if I think this way. D8 I understand why you changed the system; you explained it, but I really...just didn't like it.

I personally think this way was fine. This way, everyone had a clear idea of about how many posts they needed to get, which is the same principle used for breeding rooms. My partner and I were also fine with continuing our hunt RP as a normal one as well. It's not RE2's fault you got partners who were only in it for the hunting part.

Yeah, I guess I'm just disappointed. For me, the Easter Event in prior years was THE event, far better than Christmas and Halloween and every sale combined. Why? Because it fixed the main problem I have with Evelon: That everyone replies to RPs so goddamn slowly.

I'm a very fast RPer and I really only stay interested in a storyline if there are lots of replies every day. Evelon is kinda the opposite of this, sadly. There are events which are good - Tourneys or like now that one Scav Hunt task - because they give a deadline. Breeding rooms, too. However, the deadline in the Easter RP has never had a postcount as well, which the other events always had. Only the time, which was pretty tight and so, lots and lots of posts were made. I think Millie and I managed 120 or more in five days once and that is exactly what I loved so much. These RPs are easily the ones I like the most of all I've done here. Sadly, it is in the nature of most humans to just stop things once the deadline is reached and with writing, once they slow, they lose interest quickly. As such, I was very dismayed to learn that the Easter Event has just been changed to "another breeding room". 30 posts are not enough for a full storyline and while you are lucky to have gotten a partner who continued your RP with you, that's sadly rare on Evelon. =(

But then again, that's mostly me, after all. Everyone else seems fine with waiting for RP replies forever, so I guess it's really just me who is strange and just really sad that the event that I enjoyed the most got nerfed in such a way. Probably a way that's better for the main population of Evelon, though. But yeah. RE2 asked why the participation was low and I could only speak about myself, so here you go, that's my reason.

Hey, I don't quite like the implication that we're wrong or stupid for being willing to wait for posts, or not replying to every single post right away. It's great that you can reply so fast and so constantly to RPs, but not everyone always has the time or the muse to do that. It also means more thought put into replies-when I first started here, I was a fervent replier, but now when I go back, I see that most of those posts are quick, short, and bland. Also, seriously, saying that people don't like to continue past the deadline? Most people I've RPed with have been eager to continue our stories if they were interested in it. Clearly your incident was the exception, not the rule.

Also, "it's not possible to make a full storyline in 30 posts"? I think that depends on who you're RPing with. I have had perfectly satisfying breeding room RPs that finished in the minimum amount of posts and also brought storylines to a close.

I'm not implying that at all. I'm just saying that you guys obviously just have a lot more patience that I ever had and probably the ability to not forget what you've written a month ago. And well, yes, I write for a living, so I'm basically used and forced to write every day. If I'd tell my boss I'd have no "muse" I'd get fired, so I have long learned to simply write, no matter if I have ideas or not - and have learned through that that my writing is just as good, just starting is harder.

And well, I dunno. Either my RPs must be spectaculary bad our yours amazing because I really can't recall a single one except for a Shrine Trait RP that was not abandoned because people lost interest. =/ And I'm not only here since yesterday. Since breeding rooms are often long-timed planned things, though, I agree with you there. I just don't share enough keys, only some BBs, to really have experience there. For unplanned things like the Easter event, I had not a single RP in all the years that has a closure. Especially not this year's ones. Seems like it's different for everyone.

But anyway. OT discussion is OT.
