Here at Red 5 Studios, we are big believers that the development team should interact with our awesome community on a regular basis and next weekend, we’re going to bring that interaction to the next level. The weekend of July 11th, we are going to be giving you the chance to go head to head against the developers in game. This is much more than a simple PvP event though, as we will not be playing as regular humans, but instead taking the place of Chosen bosses attacking New Eden.
Instead of playing as lowly Chosen Dreadnaughts or Siegebakers, we will be spawning as special Chosen with powerful custom made weapons and buckets of HP, so don’t think that we will be easy to take down! Twice each day, we will launch a coordinated attack across all of the populated shards in which we and our Chosen buddies will conspire to capture your watchtowers and harvest your jawbones. In addition to the scheduled attacks, developers will be logging on randomly throughout the entire weekend in order to
get their revenge keep the fun going all weekend long. We’ll post more details on the exact times of the scheduled attacks as well as the start and finish of the event next week.
This event will be purely for fun; there aren’t going to be special rewards associated with killing us (other than the ability to make fun of us on the forums), and we aren’t going to be griefing you guys by destroying your thumpers or otherwise interfering with the gameplay of people who don’t want to participate. In the spirit of that, we will be disabling all durability loss for the duration of the event.
We really hope you guys enjoy this event (we know we will), and we look forward to seeing you in game!
