Confession time! I am a total hypocrite: I love the idea of player events
but I rarely attend them in-game. Actually, maybe that just makes me more lazy than hypocritical.
I think that a player event can boast more ingenuity and yield more memories than developer efforts, even if players are hamstrung by not always having the tools to do everything they'd like. We've all heard stories of funerals
, of PvP wars
, of naked Gnome races
, of scavenger hunts, of concerts
, and of costume contests
. But the question today concerns attendance. Do you go to player-created events or just read about them in the paper the next day?
