    [TR] RDIS Drinks the Kool Aid - Tues 26 May - Prizes!

    With new cert incentives for being terrible lowbies, RDIS is organising a mass suicide on Tuesday 26 May.

    For all those willing to take part (it is not mandatory) there will be a special ceremony to mark the occasion at 1930 BST, after which will we wipe our characters and start the glorious struggle from the bottom.

    As I have two TR characters, I will keep one alive and certed so that we have someone with beacons and whatnot - I will not be eligible for prizes, obviously.

    The RDIS player who starts a new toon on the night and reaches the highest Battle Rank will receive a Steam Voucher for at least GBP10, or local equivalent. This player will also have the honour of the final kill on my character, by whichever means they choose.

    The player who by popular vote at 2130 has performed the best or otherwise done the most hilarious/ridiculous thing will also receive a steam voucher worth at least GBP10, or local equivalent. This player has to accept a death by whichever method the mob chooses, preferably one fitting to their performance on the night.

    By kind donation of the only remotely acceptable member of the NC, Boffinboots, we also have two three-day XP boosts and three codes for golden faction-specific SMGs, 7-day XP Boost and 1000 Station Cash. Hopefully these still work, we'll see. Suggestions accepted for what they should be given for.

    DISCLAIMER: It's my money, and I'll sure as piss break any and all of these rules if I want to. Highest BR is not binding, and will not be given to people ignoring the squad or using any kind of exploit, play the damn game. The popular vote is not binding and might well outright ignored without justification. But Stoopiduk what's to stop you just giving the stuff to your friends? Shut up.


    For reference, from the patch notes:
    Battle Rank Certs Until 15
    We felt the cert gain rate at low levels was too restrictive for new players trying to grow their characters. With this change, each battle rank achieved through BR 15 now provides 100 free certs to help new players get their characters rolling.
    I'm not a mathematician, but I make that out to be 1,500,000 certs per character by level 15.

    OVER.

    Damn it I've been too far away from the game and too crap at it anyway to get anywhere close to highest BR in a session, but i know how i would kill stoopiduk. It would have been gloriously TR and yet totally in my style. It shall not be

    Perhaps a less inspired individual might be grateful of the suggestion on the night. If you can make it, I would of course love to run with you, Ksempac.

    I also absolutely approve of killing me being your main motivator when there's money on the table. OVER.

    Sounds like the perfect time to finally spawn a grunt for the Dics!

    Did they separate battle ranks from xp boosts already? Perhaps I have a chance at some of Stoopid's sweet moolah after all.

    I don't have room to create a new character and I'd rather not lose my Heroic boost so I'll be there and barely lucid.

    Sounds good! I think I'm around BR30-something on TR so I won't delete though (but can provide beacons and the like).

    If I can make it I'll try and come so I can pull certed stuff for people should they wish.

    I I also have some boosts, weapon packs and SC (which might not work) left that you can have as extra prizes, even if I can't make it.

    Might also be my Planetside swansong....

    You make me sad.

    We'd make it a fine swansong, rest assured the giraffes will be well hunted in your absence.

    Gratefully accept any prizes you're willing to throw in the pot, that'd be very kind.

    Over.

    To the event I can turn up with my BR 60something. Also can I be a squad leader? I want those sweet sweet ribbons when you all ding.

    As to gifts, I actually looked into trying to get PS2 gift cards for some competitions/events for the PS2 team but unfortuntley unattainable. Although it says DBG is working on making gifting cash to friends happen, I bet that message has been there for years.

    I've wanted to start a TR character for a bit now, so this seems like the perfect time to do it. Eggman20TR, or a similarly awful way of crowbarring TR into my name, will be there.

    At what point do we start making comments about how we're RDIS nails?

    IMMEDIATELY. That's an order. Over.

    Edit: Updated original post to reflect Boff's kind donations.

    By kind donation of the only remotely acceptable member of the NC, Boffinboots, we also have two three-day XP boosts and three codes for golden faction-specific SMGs, 7-day XP Boost and 1000 Station Cash. Hopefully these still work, we'll see. Suggestions accepted for what these prizes should be given for.

    Oh my God I've been serious all day. I really needed to get that out of my system.

    The Darn Tootin' prize for bravest horn tooting in the face of the enemy.

    Also, one of the 3 day XP boost should be a boobie prize for who ever climbs the least ranks. And I'm not just saying it because it'll be me, if I join*

    If so you might as well just give me the rewards now, I am the supreme commander of vehicle horns.

    I may have been referencing something less kosher than vehicle horns.
