So, people don't really want to attend events as it cuts into their skilling time. But what if the events were part of skilling? I got the idea from the "Group Skilling" section of the ideas post, thought I might try putting it into practice.

Here's how it works: Over the course of 24 hours, we all skill in the same spot, doing the same skill. A week or so before then, everyone who plans on attending puts their name down and they get entered into a tracker. The winner is of course the person who gains the most experience in the selected skill. The idea is that we all do it together, and to encourage this only the people who are at the event's location and world will be counted. This event will serve as something of the test, if people like the idea and come I can make more for different skills, if people don't then I won't, or if people want something changed I can arrange that too.

So, here's the details. As this is a trial run and the first time, you get 2 weeks to sign up, on the day before the event I'll create the trackers so if you haven't managed to sign up before then I'm afraid your out of luck. You can still attend if you want to, however you won't be able to win or be tracked. If people like it and want more, they'll be weekly and as such you'll only have one week to sign up. Of course, you're wondering where we'll be, and what we'll be doing. In two weeks, we'll be doing my "favourite" skill Woodcutting on W22, at the falador ivies.

For those of you who are free to play, yes there will be some free to play mini skill wars should this one prove popular.

  • Event Name: Mini Skill War #1
  • What to bring: An axe, you'll also need 68 woodcutting
  • Date: 15th October 2011
  • Time: 00:01AM until 23:59PM
  • Meeting Location: Falador ivies
  • World: 22

Edit: Tracker: http://runetrack.com/competitions/competition_tracker.php?id=7922

I like this idea, a full day of training one skill in the same spot, no given time to show up. It's like "oh are you training woodcutting? Come do it with the rest of the clan!" Hopefully this will be successful.

I can't compete in this (P2P), but I've always liked this setup, so here's an encouraging smiley for you: :jam:

If we do a F2P world we should probably make it a foreign world as everything in English worlds is filled with bots basically.

Not to usurp your event, Krevil, but what do you think about making a single event in a f2p world? I don't think event attendance is quite high enough to justify splitting the possible number of attendees in half by hosting the event across two different worlds.

Surely there must be at least one f2p world in some place that isn't over run with bots? D;

If we go to a world like 128 (Foreign server) we will be fine, normally there is only 20-100 people on over the day. \:D/
