Island Season 8
We have now started Island Season 8!! There will be a lot of changes to this new season. We have changed up the Lugia quest, now it's for a Kyogre!! That means you will have to choose if you want to get any of the birds (or all three) or if you want to save those orbs and get yourself a Kyogre..... if you can finish the quest!
We will also be changing out how this seasons tournament will work. Normally, you would only get to compete in one tournament. We are going to change this up so that you can compete in more than one! If however, you place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and thus win the prizes, you will be temp banned from the server until it's reset again. This will give more players a chance to keep playing on the server, and give players more chances at winning a tournament. We've also added an experience boost this season, meaning all experience from Pokemon are multiplied by 1.25. We hope this helps you train up your Pokemon for the main event!
Note: Due to the recent Mojang name changes, there might be issues with resending donations. If you did change your ign and you did not get your donations recent to you, our admin Spud4you will be able to help you. Simply send him a msg in game, on the forums, or make a post in the donation section and we'll be able to sort you out so that you get everything you should.
Over the past week, we've been working on an old concept that's been on region 2 for almost a year now. For the older members of the community, you may have remembered Lachlan creating a special video on region 2 introducing this feature, however it never made it to the public. The region 2 Admins decided to bring it back and offer something else to do on region 2. We are officially bring back Red to region 2 and this post will explain everything about Red.
What is Red?
Red is a King of the Hill-like game where one person has the title of Red and has to battle challengers to his title of Red. If Red looses to a challenger, then the challenger becomes Red and starts to defend his postion. This process goes on within a defined time space and the Red at the end of the time will hold onto the title for a week.
Can I challenge Red whenever I want to?
Unfortuantly you can't. There will be a set time, usually over the weekend, where anyone who has beaten the Elite 4 can contest for the title of Red. You will only have one shot at challenging Red within that set time, so if you loose against Red you're going to have to wait till next week. If you win and become Red, but loose the title later on within the set time, you will also have to wait untill next week to challenge.
What happens if Red becomes inactive?
It will depend on each case, however by challenging Red you acknowledge that you're going to have to be avaliable for a minimum of 2 hours over the weekend to do battles. We understand that everyone is a human being so if you are having trouble being active over a certain weekend, message an admin before and look to possibly rearrange. If you message an Admin a couple of minutes or hours before the event, then it's harder to rearrange the time. In event of Red becoming inactive, an Admin will take role of Red carry on as normal
What rewards do you get by being Red?
If you hold the title of Red, you get given a special Red tag to your name, so everyone on the server knows that you are Red. We will also have a Hall of Fame for everyone who has been Red, as long as a record of how long you have held the title.
So with the basic information sorted, we would like to announce that the Red event will be held on Saturday 7th March at 5PM EST / 10PM GMT. This is the probably time slot for when Red is done every weekend, however as noted it may depend on circumstances.
We hope you enjoy this feature which is being readded to Region 2 and also we would like to thank Asuna, Flipper and Painted for implementing the idea on the server.
