With the return of the B.O.O skin I was reminded at how fun the 2009 Halloween event was and how it was something of a cop-out at the end thanks to Jack.
But also with the return of the skin it reminded me of the first Event I took part in when joining Gaia: The city wide Water Balloon Fight for the Summer 2007 event. Which for me ranks as one of the best events along side the Halloween 2009 and Easter 2011 events.
So GCD, while riding the wave of past Event memories do you remember which was the first Event you actually participated in on Gaia and do you even remember if you liked it or not?
And also what do you look for or dread about this years upcoming Events?
My first event was the Halloween of 2003-- I was a wee newblet and had no idea what was going on, the shops were giving out these shitty refurbished sheets and everyone was going crazy trading them and hoarding. XD;; I sure wish I stocked up on the actual Halloweeny items themselves.
My first event was also the summer water festival of 07. I remember not wanting to participate because I thought you had to post sooo many times to get the t-shirts, and also thinking 5000g was a lot. I did participate in a couple water fights in towns though. ^_^
My first event that I actively paid attention to and participated in was Halloween 2k4. The event was trick or treating and a forum, and only trick or treating and a forum. It was more than enough for us at the time.
I have never once been disappointed by an event, except for that recent minigame that required you click the owls or whatever. I just opted out of that, though. I love the events, I love wing stickers, I think these events are a total riot.
My first event was waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in '04. It was the end of October. Halloween. I had gotten outta school early, as per usual here on that holiday, and had decided to hop onto the computer to enjoy my newly found favorite site, prior to trick or treating IRL. I'd only been on gaia for about a month.
I don't remember much, other than running around the maps looking for bags/Jack. I really didn't have any idea what I was doing. Then I saw there was something going down at the Gambino mansion. Something strange was going on. There was a huge amount of lag, Gaia kept crashing on me, but whatever. I'd noticed some button that said "Bite".... so then I'd try to run around and bite people. Sadly, that event was glitched for me- I had never gotten the original zombie skin, nor any of the items. Not that I had a lot of time anyway, a few hours then my mom got home and we went to ToT'ing. I'd hoped I could continue the next day, but that event had only lasted 24 hours. By the time I got out of school the next day, it was already over. crying
My first event that I clearly remember is the 06' Halloween event. The reason I say remember is because I joined in July but don't know if there was any events after that before Halloween.
It was a hassle in the beginning, as humans outnumbered the vampires, but they soon made a decent way for people to get both set of items and have fun without having to resort to mules.
Those poor poor vampire developers, never stood a chance. emo
