Make-An-Event Thread Discussion and Waffle Emporium

P.S. we are out of waffles.

I've been kinda busy, new job, new stuff, stuff I don't want to talk about, thing is I haven't been on the forums like I used to.

We do tend to criticize EAs events (with reason) yet whenever we do "suggest" content it tends to be in a list form with no discernible gameplay or plot behind it.

Mah suggestion?
Let's make an event! Or events, alotta cooties/people have good ideas let's toss around the ideas and see what we come up with. Let's show EA how it's done!

Or this thread can de-evolve into a thread about gifs I don't know.

I won't provide a template because most people have a general idea of how they work, but I'll cook something up just in case it's needed.

P.P.S. (hehe I said peepee) I know we have two "events" (tie in and mini) but it's just something to think and discuss about.

  • Inspired by Deadshot and the general idea of a school event, here you go. Also I'm going to bed.

    Skinner: Fine, I'll give those involved full immunity for the rest of the year.
    Lisa: Won't that just cause the school to become further damaged?
    Skinner: That's a risk we'll have to take.

    Lisa: Principal Skinner, I found out who was behind all of this, they've been using connections with organized crime families to cause all this!
    Skinner: well once we get to the bottom of this we'll make sure to expel that student.
    Skinner: As well as remove any extra credit held by their relatives. So Lisa who was this perpetrator?
    Lisa: Umm Hubert Wong!
    Wiggum: Hey Skinner I've been meaning to talk to you.
    Skinner: (gasp) He knows I'm underpaying him!
    Wiggum: we received this from the school district, we thought it was Ralphies report card so didn't open it.
    Skinner: Why the school funds are all here, and Lisa has also gotten to the bottom of this. It was caused by a student and a local criminal organization...
    Fat Tony: You have my thanks Lisa, if it wasn't for you we would have never learned that Hubert Wong was related to members of the Springfield Yakuza, our local shops will be free from their terror and able to accept our familiar brand of Terror.

    Lisa starts

    Lisa: Well I hope you learned your lesson Bart, you might have gotten cancelled school for a while, but as long as I'm here it'll never be closed.
    Bart: Yeah but I still got my cut out of it. I was paid by Skinner and Fat Tony, I also got to mess up cars.
    Fat Tony: And here is the other part of our agreement, one motorized Pool vehicle as requested.
    Lisa: What? I only got extra credit and Malibu Stacy's! Well at least you can't use it, we both have to go to school.
    Bart: That's where your wrong Lis, my second payment was "Educational Immunology", so I don't have to show up to class and I won't get into trouble, Smell ya later!
    Lisa: I should've asked for more *grumbles*


    Add to it, criticize it, modify it, make your own, just add to the conversation and discuss!
  • Good idea :+1:

    This should be in game discussion
  • There was a forum member doing something very similar to this about one or two years ago. He wrote these incredibly long and detailed posts outlining proposed event content and dialog (way too long for me to read). I can’t recall the thread title or user name, but I think they were posted to OT. Wonder what happened to that guy...

    I have no idea the person was before my time on here.
