OK, we are lucky beyond belief to be a part of the EE server. We have the most awesome Events Team ever. At the time of writing these are the stats:

Aniro: 293 posts
Arispotle: 1158 posts (!)
Leanon: 662 posts
Windermeer: 741 posts

Since release our stats have utterly ruled the other shards.

This is not just down to the awesome player-base we have on Arispotle. We have the best and uberest Events Team out there.

I for one am so grateful to be a part of this amazing community, lead by an events team that rules the airwaves.

Thank you SO much guys for your time and comittment :)

Couldnt agree more with that :)

And why, I'm very surprised we beat the french server here, I'd have though they'd post much more than that.

I'm not even gonna mention Rulers of Atys Kibs' events here, which go from Mektoub Races, to Boxing, and other trips - I'm sure kibsy doesnt need any advertisement :D

Most impressive were the efforts the CSR team has put in the latest invasion (if I may remind, screenies at http://ryzom.info/images/kitin_invasion_15_01_2005.rar )
Now, sure we've been *****ing at the beginning (DP ? talk about a surprise!) but hey, this ended up being real fun, with a role to play for harvesters and crafters aswell.

Lastly, I'd like to remind thee readers (is anyone reading? hello? why am I alone?) that there will be a Matis -> Tryker trip on saturday the 22th of january, 8 PM, Davae.
Check Saga => Arispotle


Love the team, love the game, love the players, ban the scammers that put mats for 50k each on the merchants, hoping someone will click :p

PS: I still want a photo of raya when I reach 200 tickets :/
PPS: I love people *****ing at the team :) seems like its always the ones that do the least, that whine the most ;)

Yay for Euro English humor and non-selfishness!

I think its great to be on the Arispotle shard, and all the people on it are great, kind players (both paying players, guides, and gm's).

Some of the players should have a grandprice-medal (Endasil, Kibs and others) for trying to make it a bit more fun to play SoR (especially while waiting for patch 2). I hope for the sake of the events makers, that the participation of others is enough reward to continue.

I agree in Garstens point of view, that the "nation diversity wins over single nations". Why not try to do things you wish you could do in RL? On the Arispotle Shard we are not English, German, French, Norwegian, Swedish, Hungarian, Danish, Spanish, Italian or any other nation... here we are all Atysian!

If people dont want to attend in these events, then I say its their loss.

i can only agree with what has been said before EE shard rocks!! i ve met great peeps (included my lover...tang..erm..dam) and well thx to the CSRs who organize great events like the last one which ended in a great fun (of course it was fun matis won first..what fyros too?who cares..:P) and the weddings which show how nice the EE community is!

I utterly agree Dami. The player-organised events are so much fun too. Of course Kibsy, Endasil and Jyudas spring readily to mind as the major contributors to amazing guild-organised events, but there are so many guilds planning well-attended events that each week we have something to look forward to, added to the events organised by the official team. I wonder what it is about the EE players that so many of us are willing to organise/attend events and totally throw ourselves into the fun. And then of course we have Thewarcc and Kaetemi videoing each event so that those of us who can't attend can catch up on what we've missed :)

And I would agree that the player community is what keeps me playing the game...the confluence of personalities from around the world makes the server interesting.

I think the multiple threads concerning the need for improving events speak loud enough about the event team.

How about a player name ??? why do whingers never place a name in sig ?

I think you miss the point of my thread entirely ;)

We have the biggest response on our events boards by far. That is down to the events team and the encouragement they give to the players to arrange their own events. Ergo - we have the best events on our server WITHOUT QUESTION. The stats speak for themselves.

I feel like poking you in the eye with a blunt object (in the nicest and friendliest way possible, of course ;) ) for your nasty closing comment. I don't want negatively here thank you. Everyone else who has posted has grasped the mentality behind me starting this thread. We have the best events team period. I wanted to thank them. Nothing else :)

If that is the point of your thread, I agree. The EE player community is wonderful, as I said.

The stats speak for themselves.

Actually, the stat comparison you make isn't particularly valid, and while I normally avoid posting on the 'we luv the dev/CSR' threads, is actually what initially prompted me to provide balance to this one. You're comparing apples and oranges with those numbers - other servers generally post just as many events on their main boards as their server boards. We don't. Hence, not a particularly valid reason to get excited. There are lies, damned lies...and statistics. This falls under that realm.

I don't want negatively here thank you

You certainly didn't have a problem trying to cheer rather loudly in threads designed for constructive feedback. I'm returning the favor, and at least I'm trying to be constructive, not negative. You're welcome! :)

for your nasty closing comment

How is pointing out that there are numerous threads on event problems nasty? I really hope the devs and CSRs take them to light; I for one look forward to the next series of events, especially if they're run better, which can only be done if player feedback is taken seriously and they don't start thinking for one minute that other events don't need significant improvement on their end. Telling someone 'they rule' is all nice and good - but if improvement needs to happen (talk about overwhelming statistics - a WHOLE lot more players have posted on ways to improve than have posted here), it's counterproductive except for those who don't seek to improve the game.

Why do whingers

And while I respect you in game Tangie, we get tired of fanbois taking things personally. :) (Let she who is without sin cast the first stone - I don't use that word except for people who want to censor, and calling a post that provided balance 'whining' starts us down that path).

I'm done since I have no interest in taking part in a flame war. I find the 'we luv the CSR/devs' posts just as useless as the 'I quit the game sucks' posts. There aren't a lot of us left post-patch 1 who try to provide balance. I do. Enjoy your cheering! :)

Do you think the CSR/devs team would keep doing events and improvements if all they were told was 'This was wrong in these ways: ...', 'That event sucked!' etc? No, give credit where credit is due - they work hard for this... Constructive critisism is useful, but including the parts that actually worked in your opinion in the post usually works as a boost of morale.

I know for certain that if I was an event planner and everyone afterwards expressed themselves as you do, I would stop, simply because you seem to be too hard to please!

And about hating these threads - you saw the topic before clicking, you could have avoided this thread entirely ;)

First off , my apolagies if you thought i was trying to flame you or start a flame war , that was not my intention . Yes you are entitled to give your opinion's although its forseen that not everybody will agree with you, or me, or indeed anyone else who has an opinion.

You say you respect me ingame which is nice to hear , which brings me to the point i was trying to make , you have the advantage of knowing who i am ingame . I on the other hand have no idea who you are ingame .
Try to think of it in terms of an unsigned document bears no weight or a unsigned check is useless , i have no problems with constructive critisism, indeed it can lead to constructive and open debates. So please add a siggy :) *hugs*

I agree, the CSR/events team is the best I have ever seen in any game, and they are constantly improving all events. This shows in the rapidly increasing player base on arispostle, you cant help but notice it in matis nowadays :)

And thanks for the gratitude on events guys, but to be honest I couldn't have done any of them without the terrific support of the CSRs :)

And make sure we all go to the beach party Sxar is hosting next sun :)

Thank you all for your support - it so rewarding to deliver events for the Homins of Arispotle.

All criticism is either passed on the devs or taken to heart as appropriate, and all constructive criticism is welcomed unequivocally.

And please remember, if you have an event idea talk to the events team – by being involved you can help to make Arispotle events better and better and contribute in a positive and exciting way to everyone’s playing experience!

Why actually, organizing events on EE hsa never been a prob, I believe kibs has always had the required CSR support for her events

Lets keep the show going :p

Actually, I believe the other servers also have a CSR team, and the "move topic" button isnt here for the dogs to use, they wouldnt know how to handle it.

I have attended many of these events and they totally rock. You will always have some "sour grapes" along for the ride, bored and *****ing, but it just goes to show you that regardless of how many whiners are crowing, they can't and don't ruin the fun for the rest of us. (You know who you are) I have enjoyed each and every one, the teamwork is amazing. This server is so much fun for me, I live in the states and I have met and played with people from all over the world, it is wonderful to say the very least. The events bring us all together and as someone said, we become "one" when that happens, same goals, same hopes, and FUN. Keep up the fantastic work Events Team, you do indeed rule!!!
