    THE WORLD VS. ORR - SATURDAY the 5th of April - 8PM GMT // 9PM BST



    Hi!


    Yes, new PvE event. Gonna be big. Only a week's proper notice, I know - but hopefully it'll be enough. We get the numbers online on Saturday nights anyway.

    Here's a recap of the last one during December 2013 in case you missed it.

    There's a twist with this one: It's gonna involve both the EU and the US side of the game. I will be handling the EU side (hopefully with volunteers from you lovely people) whereas the podcast Relics of Orr will be handling the US side. The event will kick off simultaneously in the EU and US at 8PM GMT on Saturday. We intend on using the same TeamSpeak server as the US side so it's gonna be quite chaotic, but it should be fun.

    It's basically a zerg across Orr. All welcome as usual - but remember to save your guest passes; the EU side is on UNDERWORLD!

    The details...

    The goal of the evening is to clear as many temples in Orr as possible, completing any random events we come across on the way. We'll start with the Temple of Balthazar and hopefully end up at the Temple of Grenth.

    Perhaps we'll even cap off the night by killing a Karka Queen or giant wurm head...

    Where and when do we meet up?

    Fort Trinity, 8PM GMT on Saturday the 5th! Click here to see what that is in your local time. Remember that UTC is an hour behind British time!

    There will be assistants within the Fort to assign groups and tell you what's going on.

    Never been to Fort Trinity before? You can get there by running directly south from Lion's Arch!

    Do I need anything?

    A positive attitude with the willingness to take on some of the hardest, zergiest events in the game!

    Obviously you will need to get to Fort Trinity so bring a decently levelled character. You don't need to have explored Orr before though; we generally run from each location without using waypoints.

    As the event will be taking place at the same time on both sides of the Atlantic, we will likely be sharing a TeamSpeak server so the US guys can experience what it's like to be a part of one of these events. I really, really recommend that you grab TeamSpeak beforehand; Fight for Frostgorge, Slaying the Shatterer and Rampage from Rata Sum all made great use of TeamSpeak, with over 50 people coming on to join the fun. I want to extend that with this event!

    We will give out the details for the TeamSpeak server on the night at Fort Trinity.

    Where are we going?

    To Orr!

    We are running through the continent from Fort Trinity to Cursed Shore. Folks who have attended one of my events before will likely be familiar with the sort of emergent madness to expect and this should be doubly fun.

    What are we doing?

    We should be capturing all of the available temples and concluding with this meta event, but we'll likely throw in some surprises on the way (or even afterwards).

    Do I need to do anything?

    Not really – just turn up!

    This is the sixth of these events that I’m hosting but don’t let that put you off; we get new faces every time and I assure you that we explain things very clearly to newcomers. All I ask is that you attend and have fun!

    I'm very excited to team up with Relics of Orr and this is guaranteed to be my biggest venture yet. Together, I'm confident that we will pull it off successfully for both the EU and the US.

    Remember that you can play with us even if you are not a native of Underworld or Anvil Rock. Click here for more information.

    Questions below please. There's also an official forum thread here that could do with bumping.

    Oh, I'm holding it on Underworld because for every Saturday evening for the last... er... while I've noticed that Gunnar's liberate all of the temples and shizz. Maybe [MM] do it? Underworld has hardly any population so I figured we'd use that instead.

    5pm as in the 3 year old's scrawl, or 8pm as in the header? At cinema next week, so won't be on till gone 10, but might catch the end of it.

    Shite, you're right Ohara. It's 8PM, not 5PM.

    Also to get some perspective... 8pm GMT is going to be 9pm UK or 10pm western Europe... so maybe a bit late start?

    Right Aliss. It's 9PM BST - pretty late indeed, but it's to compensate for our American cousins next to the Pacific. Plus I think there's always folks who can't come earlier so it will be a nice opportunity for them.

    Great to hear Sap. I have a feeling we will have quite an enjoyable time...

    I think I'm keeping the placeholder banner in this thread, but in case anyone wants to know what the real one looks like...

    We will put the quaggan tonics in the easy stash access area on saturday morning for you to pick up and use at the event. Am sure we have someone with a krait tonic too - so please bring that for group scare pictures...

    Thanks for volunteering to hat up guys. I will definitely need your support on the night as I will also be helping RoO coordinate the American side, so it's gonna be a little hectic to say the least.

    Monkey, we do have some Vault Transports researched as upgrades so we should be able to summon the bank at Fort Trinity in the evening. Providing that someone remembers to do so!

    Yeah I will bring my hat too. I've been queueing a few vault transports for such a thing. Pondering a party of hat wearers so we can party chat but each lead a squad...

    Yes Monkey, that does sound reasonable - depending how hectic things go. Generally we have at least two commanders for the opening invasion in order to kick up NPC morale for Balthazar. I always, always need general assistance anyway.

    There's now a Reddit thread and a big poster thing.

    Was thinking of games or similar to keep people interested/busy as people slowly fill up to the hard limit. Likely getting there for 7 will be handy for organiser/hatters
