There are typically three types of player events:
- Scripted / Theatrical
People who attend the event are expected to be entertained with little to no participation. Things like weddings would fall into this category.
Players are meeting up to participate in an event that showcases them versus someone or something. Fishing tournaments or PVP events would be examples of this.
Now I listed them in that way for a specific reason. They are listed in what I consider to be easiest to host to most challenging. Certainly you can throw together a quick fishing tourney without much thought but you’d be surprised some of the trouble you can face when the event includes a “winner” and a “loser”.
There could be other types of events or hybrids of the above but for I'll be focusing on these types in future posts. I started typing up descriptions and tips for each but it was going to be just entirely too long so I'm going to break them up.
