Welcome to the PSN Events Board!

Welcome one and all to this brand new board!

 

We all love events, right? Well this will be the central hub to find out what the awesome community are hosting, be it if they are run by the Community Team, MVP or a Community Member.

 

There are just so many awesome events going on around the forums, it was decided we need a place to highlight them! So in here you will find posts that give an outline of the event and a link to where you can find the discussion thread for that event!

This is what it's all about, if you can see what kind of event the community is missing, you guys could come up with an awesome new event to fill the gap!

I couldn't maintain CatNMouse due to being too busy unfortunately and some were finding the novelty of the alternative GT5 game play disappearing.

 

Although Smokey is planning on bringing Cat & Mouse back but needs help getting people interested in it again.  So if you want that particular event to return then help smokey gather some troops for it :Thumbs:

Welcome :)

 

Keep an eye on this thread...

 

http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Battlefield/OPC-Battlefield-3-Sundays/td-p/14026613

 

Each Sunday the server name will be posted in there and you just need to search for that in BF3.  Then join in the fun and shoot people :P

 

The 'OPC' tag stands for 'Official PlayStation Community'.  It's the clan tag we use :)

Any chance of putting the the likes of BF Sunday & KZ AM back into the BF & KZ section? Considering they;ve been going for years & will continue, it's more convenient to have them in their own gaming section.

 

I think this PSN Event pages works better for shorter events. But in general, just makes sense to put it back the way it was. If I'm already in the BF section talking about BF4. Better just to scroll up to BF4 Sunday....This is a odd change guys!

I'm with Cringles on this one, it's going to be much, much harder to draw in new players to our events when they're outside of the board where all the discussion about the game is going on. There'll be no "natural discovery" of the event, and much much less spontaneous joining. 

 

We spend loads of time setting up, advertising and running these events - this is going to make the whole process harder.

Yep I agree too.

Especially for Assassins Creed, Killzone, GT, all the games that still have their own sub section etc; couldn't we have a copy of the face page info here in "Events" including a link to the actual event page, and leave the meat n chat of the actual event in it's respective section please?

While I totally agree with cringles and MB about events being in their own board I'd also like to point out that Battlefield no longer has a board, I'm hopeing this is a temporary measure or an oversight.

If this is a permanent feature and BF is just lumped in with "games" but yet everything from Assassins Creed to Tearaway gets its own board it's going to make myself and Cimbrers attempt at getting the community together so much harder.

I trust that our concerns will be taken on board.
