Aggro Me: Live from Norrath...
Live from Norrath...
I've always thought of live events in MMORPG's as similar to winning the lottery. It sounds like a lot of fun but it's probably not going to happen to me.
For those that haven't heard of them, live events are, well, events that involve GM's playing along with players and special, one time only, things happening.
Well, it's possible my luck might be changing.
There is apparently a live event centered on a plague that is coming soon. It's mentioned in the Live Update #6 notes on Test. And, if you have a character on the Test Server you may be able to get a sneak preview.
What's more SOE has dedicated an entire subforum to the topic. If they're going to do that, I would think they better have the actual events to back it up.
In fact they had a few already. This is a very cool thread detailing a live event related to the Adventure Pack. It was apparently brief but enjoyable. One player even got a new title and a letter from the Overlord himself out of it. If you check the comments section of this very post you can read about Justin's interesting live event experience in the Thundering Steppes.
So, if you see another player really roleplaying their character don't think he or she is just hamming it up. It just may be a GM bringing you some live fun.
