In a Daily Grind question on Massively Overpowered, the community of readers were asked if anyone among us had ever run a player event. Now I, personally, have not done anything outside of a costume contest in City of Heroes. Still, I had considered doing a lot more events, either in large scale or being given the chance to run a series of quests or events with a guild or an RP party.
Then it struck me….not many games let us actually DO that. And this strike was initiated by a Sigbjorn and his post about the matter. Looking at the comment now, Brianna Royce had pretty much said everything I was going to say…but it does bear some expounding on. Or at least what I’d love to see to make an MMO playerbase an actual community.
