Thanks to everybody who participated in [ the BATTLE of the BARREL pt 2 ] last night! Cool to see and hear the city come to life again! We knew that Novodmitrovsk wasn´t the perfect location, issues with framdrops, close to the coast, etc etc - but it was a location that gameplay-wise have been dead for months.

A shoutout to Inspector Marc who grabbed the stash - gg, man! Anyone who knows who grabbed the barrel itself?

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this event, please leave us a feedback and we can make the event even more epic next time!

Summing up my feedback.
Quote
hleV [12. Mar 09:14 PM]:   better suicide and spawn in novo lul
hleV [12. Mar 09:16 PM]:   good luck, not even gonna bother running to the coast
hleV [12. Mar 09:17 PM]:   have fun fighting freshspawns lul
hleV [12. Mar 09:19 PM]:   more like "meh, cba to fight hoardes of freshies who spawn 1 minute away from the barrel"
hleV [12. Mar 09:20 PM]:   do it in berezino next time
hleV [12. Mar 09:32 PM]:   How far is it is not the problem. Problem is that it's within close proximity to spawns
hleV [12. Mar 10:24 PM]:   No HAL, I have a problem with permadeath not having an effect when you can just respawn and re-appear there in minutes.
hleV [13. Mar 12:18 AM]:   lol, a freshspawn got it
hleV [13. Mar 12:18 AM]:   not even surprised
hleV [13. Mar 12:40 AM]:   spawns on the coast, sprints for a few minutes, gets barrel. "deserved it"
hleV [13. Mar 12:43 AM]:   This event was pretty much "fuck you people up northwest, yay coastal faggotry"
hleV [13. Mar 12:43 AM]:   Part 1 was better.

I  don´t know who it was, but I heard a player before I left who came pretty early into Novo around the barrel area with a supressed pistol (killing zombies).

@hleV, I´m pretty sure we´re not going for a coastal town for the third episode of this event. But who knows? The main problem with this event was connected to technical issues caused by the game, not so much the location. One thing is for sure, working with DayZ never turns out the way you want it to be. But we will try to figure out a way to work around it for the next time.

I think for many of us who play regularly on Oldschool doesn´t mind running across the map for a certain object. Since the game doesn´t have a working stamina system, you can easily reach all spots in Chernrus easily within 1 hour (i´m guessing here). So that means that whatever location we´re putting a barrel, you will and can meet a freshie there.

freshspawn = someone who spawned recently (< ~20 minutes into the game).
Just because I don't have military gear does not mean I am a freshspawn. And why does it matter in the first place? I was nowhere near Novo when the event started.

Anyone who knows who grabbed the barrel itself?

Whoever this is has the barrel. Novo is maybe a bit to close to the coast but the size of the city was perfect for such a event.

Inspector, you will have to tell me how you managed this time to get the barrel. At least it lasted longer. I was running with a bow arround the location, to get people to shoot and atract other people to not make it too easy. Before the last hint I was at the barrel and it was still there.
I'm the friendliest guy in Chernarus if you kill me I will be reborn, but if you kill my friends.... I WILL COME FOR YOU!

Nobody complained about the position of the 1st barrel, so there you go.

But hey the next event is coming up and it will take part in a similar area. Except that this time hoardes of freshspawns/opposition is kinda the point.

when i think about the barrel episode #2 i just know i would have enjoyed it.
i was online, had a squad of several players (all of them failed - wp on that u guys ^^) and on my way to novo, but the game crashed and the queue was.... the end of it. for me, and 2 other ppl out of that squad ;)

even though i never reached the town, i was already complaining a lot on teamspeak about the location, because i know i would have had greatest lag of all times if i ever got there and tried to do like... anything ;D

cant wait for #3 ;) i hope the whitelist works ;)
