Server Event: PSO 20th Anniversary

Post by BlueCrab » Mon Dec 21, 2020 3:18 pm

It has been 20 years since our journey to Ragol began. Let’s have an event to celebrate.

Event Information:
Start Time: December 21, 2020 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)
End Time: January 18, 2021 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)

Description:
20 years ago, on December 21, 2000, Sonic Team and SEGA released Phantasy Star Online for the Dreamcast in Japan — truly bringing to a start the world of online RPGs on video game consoles. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the game that has kept us all enthralled for all this time, go out and rid Ragol (and/or some simulations) of the enemies that prowl.

This event is open to all versions of the game currently supported on Sylverant.

System Description:
This event combines various event mechanisms that have been used in previous events. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop tokens that you can use to trade in after the event for various in-game prizes. There are global counters for various in-game events that will be used as goals to provide bonuses to the token drop rates. In addition, there will be a leaderboard for the event based on collecting Battle Points (BP). Your BP will be tallied up silently as you progress through the game. BP will not be used for trading for prizes — it will only be used to determine the leaderboard statics.

(Not So) Fine Print:
  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkill on your account while logged in (with /login or /tlogin). It is only open to those with a registered account on the Sylverant website that have registered their serial number and access key on the site.
  • This event tracks various statistics during your gameplay, including the number of enemies you have killed. Also, kills and various other events that happen in game may reward you with tokens. As with previous event tokens, these tokens will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • The /trackkill command must be run on each registered guild card in your account in order to make progress on that guild card.
  • If you used the /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn tokens and track your statistics.
  • Cheating of any kind (be it by way of using a cheat device such as a CodeBreaker or by abusing game bugs) is not permitted! Anyone caught cheating in any way is subject to being banned from the server. This event is meant to be fun for everyone, not for a small group of cheaters to run away with it! There have been people disqualified in previous events — don’t become the next one to be disqualified for cheating!
  • Statistics are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /tokens command on a ship to see your current number of each token.
  • You may use the /showbp command on a ship to see your current BP total.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • Token drop rates may be adjusted as the event goes on. Also, there may be various announced and unannounced incentives for playing at different times during the event period.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your token drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Hopefully in the next couple of days I'll be able to get that set up. We're most of the way there, but I have a few small things I still need to take care of for it. Unfortunately, I've been pretty busy with work the past few days, so I haven't have time to finish up until tonight...

It will be announced here, on the website, on Discord, and on twitter when trade-ins are available.

EDIT: Leaderboard prizes and trade in details will be announced tomorrow evening (January 25th) sometime around 5-7 pm Eastern (US) Standard Time.

Token trade in is now available for the PSO 20th Anniversary event. As with previous events, trade in can be done by way of in-game commands on any ship (you must be alone in the team and the team will be locked to a single player once you run any of the trade-in commands) or by way of Aleron Ives' trade in quest on Altimira. The commands you can use to trade in are /tbronze, /tsilver, /tgold, and /tplatinum (as you probably would have guessed if you've been around for previous holiday-season events). Token trade in will be available until 05:00 UTC on February 9th, 2021 (2 weeks and a couple of hours from the time this post was made).

Thanks to Aleron Ives, we have a newly refreshed list of items you can trade for from this event, along with a few new items that I'll briefly describe in the next post in this thread.

About the Augmenter items...

The "Augmenter of Tokens" items when used in a future event will boost your drop rate for one type of token/trinket for a short while while you are playing. The lowest level would have corresponded with Bronze tokens in this event and the highest level with Platinum tokens. This drop rate increase only affects you (not other players in your team) and is time-limited. You cannot stack multiple of the same type of augmenter to gain additional tokens at one time (this will just increase the amount of time that the augmenter is active for).

The Augmenter Type K, B, and A will boost your contributions to various global counters that are maintained during the event for goals for a short time.

Any unused augmenters will carry forward between future events. These items will be maintained on the server and will be associated with your guild card number (you cannot transfer them between different guild cards).
