On behalf of the whole team here at Aventurine, we'd like to thank the community for their initiative and ongoing efforts in creating and running player driven events. Be they tournaments, fun events or just random acts of kindness (you can call it carebearing if it makes you feel better ), the community on both servers has shown time and time again that they care. We'll have you know that we're very interested in player-run events!
After my blog entry a few days ago, some of you might have guessed that the development team has a strong presence in-game. Indeed, keeping tabs on what's happening, evaluating the player experience and last but not least, taking footage and screenshots of real in game happenings is important to us.
We also really enjoy keeping an eye on player created events and we're usually there when these are happening. For example, several of us, including Aventurine's CEO, where watching from the shadows during the last 1vs1 Tournament on EU organized by Ninogan Swiftstep. We'd like to congratulate the organizers and the participants of this tournament. As tiny token of appreciation we thought you might enjoy watching a short video we put together with moments from the fights. We hope to be able to do this more often (of course, also for the NA server), and we're very much looking forward to your next events.
Make sure you check out the Community Event Forums for an event near you. Additionally, we created a new facebook photo gallery specifically reserved for screenshots from player created events.
