    TC:NOVA PVP EVENT Base War - March 12, 2016



    Greetings SWGEmu Community,

    We need your help!

    Some major updates have been made to the GCW faction bases which are currently being tested. Our Dev and QA teams would like to invite you all to join a large scale PVP base takedown on TC:Nova.
    Basilisk will not be taken down for this event.

    What, where, when?

    TC: Nova PvP Event: Base War
    Rebels report to /waypoint 1952 4327 Tatooine
    Imperials report to /waypoint 1764 4379 Tatooine
    Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 2:00pm EST
    check your local time here

    How can I help?

    Testing Focus:
    • Any Combat Profession/Any Template
    • Mechanics of PVP faction base takedown
    • Turret functionality (attack speed/strength/target selection/damage types)
    • Turret resists and armor rating
    • Turret control
    • Changes in state attacks and battle fatigue
    • Healing and rezzing fixes/changes
    • Assist command
    • PVP Rating (command: /showpvprating)
    • Feign Death
    • Doctor/Entertainer registration in faction bases and related perks
      Please see Publish 8 Checklist for more information

    Report any bugs you find!
    A guide on how to report bugs can be found here
    Please remember to search Mantis first before filing your own report(s)

    What will be supplied?

    PVP Faction Bases
    Blue Frogs
    Faction Cloning Facilities (equipped with recruiter and a buff terminal)

    Preparation for the event

    We strongly advise those who would like to participate in this event to jump on Nova in the upcoming couple of weeks to prepare some gear and consumables. While frog items will be readily available, they cannot compare to player-crafted items. Things to prepare ahead of time:
    • Armor (most important in this event due to turret damage)- New better armor - Composite, Kashyyykian, & Ithorian - is now offered on Blue Frogs, however it is strongly advised to at least slice the pieces to highest possible base. 90% base/38% stun crafted armor would of course fare best
    • Weapons
    • Stims/buffs/DOTs
    • Food/Drinks ARE NOT available on the frog and need to be crafted

    How will this help?

    Any bugs that are found now can be addressed before the new code is merged to Basilisk with the upcoming Publish 8. We’re counting on your support to achieve this goal.

    FYI, the faction cloning facilities are new items created specifically for events. Only members of the associated faction can enter or clone to them (and aren't set back to on leave when cloning). The idea is to prevent clone camping and allow a side to be able to regroup. As mentioned, they include a recruiter within and a terminal that has a get buffs option (same as regular event buffs, but without ECs having to manually provide them).

    If anyone ends up jumping onto Nova anytime between now & the Event , to test things out beforehand and/or make preparations & such, please feel free to login our IRC chat (and type: /join #openqa) if you have any questions about any of the newly coded GCW/Pub8-pending stuff.

    Anyways, hope to see a great turnout by our amazing Community on the 12th!!

    Yes people will likely bring good weapons, you have plenty of time between now and when the event happens to acquire better than blue frog gear.

    There will be a couple people with that. Not just because of no life, but the CTs have spawned items in the past to make testing easier.

    We made sure to post the event announcement 2 weeks ahead of time to give participants time to prepare. While obviously we want people to have fun and some great fights, main purpose of this event is to test thus we are not focused on preserving or enforcing any sort of equality in gear.

    On top of that, better armor was added to frogs so that we don't have people get one shot by the turrets. But anything beyond that is participants responsibility, thus us advising to prepare ahead of time.

    If nothing else, log on at some point ahead of the event, pick up smuggler from the frogs, and spend a little time slicing the frog gear. The new frog armor has 65% base so can be sliced to well over 80% (though not quite to 90%. You'll have to craft your own if you want 90%). The frog weapons aren't great, but slicing some ahead of time can make a big difference.
