You guys should pick a normally ignored holiday and celebrate it aggressively

Recommended Posts

Almost every game I play/follow do events for the standard holidays, to the point I'd actually say it's expected. One stands put to me though. Warframe does Movember and gives everyone cosmetic moustaches to parade around in during the month. Not the biggest deal, but stuff like that really gives a unique spirit to your property.


You guys should pick out a holiday no one really celebrates and own it.


Maybe have an influence vote (since you guys said you weren't wanting to do those anymore) and let the community pick one.

You can avoid controversial stuff, but a quick google on silly holidays yieled this for the month of January alone:

  • National Bath Safety Month
  • National Blood Donor Month
  • National Braille Literacy Month
  • National Hobby Month
  • Hot Tea Month
  • National Oatmeal Month
  • National Soup Month

Some of these could be a lot of fun lol

Any works, but I think part of what I'd want to see is something less known.


Warframe does donations every year for Movember. It's a men's health awareness type of thing and they donate to the charity. I see no other games celebrate that particular month.


Be it for fun, for charity, etc, knowing every year DD2 is going to have its annual "National Blood Donor Month" event  or whatever complete with maps/costumes/etc would be unique and fun, and would run separate from when all the other games are having events too.  It would be their unique time to do some fun stuff.

I remember this one MMO Town builder land conquere game i played once.

On Christmass every player could collect poop and then throw it at any other player and his screen would get splattered for a few seconds with poop. Not only was it quit funny but could be used to hinder them shortly abit to see the battlefield. Still very unique and funny. Gobu.

This idea is really great and offers a lot of really creative possibilities.

Due to the work required it should be considered to have this 'custom' holidays instead of some of the regular ones (so the trendy staff don't have to work for this permanently...).

Chinese New Year? Since we already have fireworks ingame... ^^


What crosses my mind:

Samhain

Beltane

...and to provide a bit of 'overview': Geek holidays

Here's one. National Safety Month in June.


It could fit very thematically with the base idea of the game, and could be the month you give us a Tavern/Marketplace defense map.


You could put the Etherian spin on it too, listing things like ways to prevent a goblin infestation, or dos and donts of assembling a kobold bomb.


It could be really silly while still bringing attention to general safety.

Also, with that, you could release a costume set based around dangerous/hazardous jobs and themes.


Lumberjack Squire, Hazmat suits, etc

That's good idea but it shouldn't bee that simple.
They can make they own history holiday.
I mean game history,Yeah.
When whole Eternia will celebrate somethin' special.
(Game npc too,they should have special replyes for it and congratulate players with somethin' realy special for them)
It will add special in game ambience and feelings.
