Trivia!

Post by Platyna » Sun May 08, 2011 9:32 pm

Next Sunday evening I am planning the trivia (exact hour will be posted earlier).
Last trivia were ran almost 2 years ago (short before I started my studies).

For those who don't know: trivia is a unique event allowing you to win items that are no longer obtainable by players (so called rares), for a person who first gives a correct answer to my question.

Rules stays as they were:
1. Primary goal of trivia is to have fun not to win items.
2. You can win more than once, anyway don't be greedy (see point 1).
3. Any spam or disruptive behaviour during the trivia results in instant ban (one warning will be issued).
4. Attempts to brute force guess will be considered spam (when you get hints, or you are supposed to state a number).
5. The correct answer is what I have on my mind, questions and answer are made according to my logic (or lack of there of - depending how much I will drink), full sentences makes a chance of winning higher.
6. After winning just state an ID of your desired item, think about it earlier to make things go smoothly.
7. You can't win an item that never was obtainable by players, ask other players if you are not sure if you can get an item, any attempts to fool me in this matter will result in loss of reward.

As 2011 is Marie Sklodowska-Curie year the subject of the trivia will be she and topic related to her and XX century science (fundamentals of biology, physics, chemistry).
Most of questions will be not Google friendly, you need to know something to win, some questions will be easy, and some will be hard.

Hard questions will be rewarded with an additional reward (a random item).

Time: around 22:00 server's time.

Regards.

RooO: learn to read! You can only have items that are/were already obtainable in game.

Any items that haven't been released won't be usable. Have fun wasting an opportunity on them.

This is why wiki is not totally useless... Check the list of items posted on wiki, you'll then know if the item you want was once obtainable or not.

659 (golden warlord) is definitely a usable item, and copies of it exist in the game, but only by being directly generated by administrative fiat. Is this enough to put it on the good side of rule 7?

Any item that is marked "Unobtainable" or "Unreleased" in the wiki can't be obtained in this Trivia. The end.

I was there too when Platyna made trivias... and that doesn't justify the fact that you didn't read point number 7.

Yes, some of unreleased items were given to players, just because there were no wiki site, and in fact, I couldn't keep track on it. I am now in progress of erasing such items (owners are offered trade for some "legitimate" items).
Anyway, you can't request it. Period.
And as I mentioned, trivia is to have fun not to get rare items at any price.
If I ever observe that this is going to change I am not going to host trivia anymore ever. TMW is more than just crave for so called "rares".
