I'm looking at beginning a war campaign in ESO. However, this isn't going to be your typical romp through Cyrodiil. I'm striving for an epic experience for everyone; this means we'll be acting as if we are truly at war. Think of it as similar to roleplaying, except not -quite- as serious. Roleplaying isn't required, this is a PvP event front and center. However, there won't be any zerging here unless it's the strategy we take up at a given time. Strategy will be the primary factor here; that means military tactics, siege weaponry, organized maneuvers, etc. I may even throw in some epic Braveheart-style speeches in for flavor!

 

The concept I'm going for here is "epic". No matter how many or few our numbers, I want everyone to feel that they've just come out of a really awesome experience. Archers in the rear volleying hailstorms of arrows. Curative mages in the middle, holding up barriers and healing allies. Soldiers and battlemages on the frontlines, charging ahead into battle for glory and victory. A contingent of troops performing a flanking maneuver on a distracted enemy. All while trebuchets and ballistae rain fire and artillery overhead. What do you think of when you hear "going to war"? What is the most epic thing you can think of? What practically sends shivers down your spine when you envision it in your mind? That's what I want everyone to experience. That's what I'm asking you to help me bring to the table.

 

I'm planning for this Wednesday, August 24th at 6pm PST/9pm EST. If it goes well, it'll continue on a biweekly basis. If it goes really well, and this is something that people want to see more often, we'll shoot for weekly. Sign up, then toss me your thoughts, ideas and suggestions and let's make this happen!


To the battlefield!

A terrific concept, sounds like a good time, hope it goes off well.  It's a little late for an old guy, but i'll try to hang for an hour or so.

No worries, Verve! Depending on feedback, I could easily pull it back a few hours. :) I'd love to have as many people as possible!

Shea, it really sounds like a fun idea!

I took my event off the calendar, so Tuesday 8est could be available as well.
