Owner Update #4

Peter Long

765 views

Jesus is it really February already? I'm still nursing my hangover from New Years Eve.....

 

Alright HI OLYMPUS! I hope you are all doing well! Time for another Owner's Desk Update!

 

So, here are some of the major points that happened during January:

 

  • Community Coordinator Role Created
  • Community Advisor Role Created
  • A few server Updates
  • I farted
  • Passive Perk System Teaser (donation goal)

 

I am sure there are a lot more things to update, but currently I am writing this on my phone while on the shitter. Let's go into a little bit of detail about those points huh?

 

1. Community Coordinator Role Created

A few weeks back, some Administrative Staff members asked me about Olympus as a Gaming Community, and how they can help the community grow. You all know that I have had plans for a minor expansion for the community into other games, and I really wanted to push forward with the Olympus League. This expansion must be done the right way : slowly, organized, and the right way. The Coordinators are dedicated to the growth of Olympus, and will actively work to bring not only new players to our Arma servers (with events, the Olympus League, Gang Wars, ect) but start bringing on players from different games, and integrate those games into Olympus. We have tried a few times as a community for a Rust Server or a Minecraft server. Every time this happened, it was with little effort, and done far too quickly for it to take hold. This is not the fault of those who spent time working on the expansion, but they were far to busy with being Administration to dedicate the time necessary in making it really work. The Coordinators are making a concentrated effort to make sure this is done the right way the first time.

 

2. Community Advisor Role Created

This is pretty straight-forward. The Advisors work under the Coordinators, and assist them in creating the teams necessary to grow Olympus. They will help run events not only on our Arma Servers, but for other games as well (CSGO, LoL, ect). This role, along with the Coordinator role, will be expanded upon as time goes on. 

 

3. I Farted

It was dry, about 3 seconds long, and sounded like @DeadPooL when he laughs to hard.

 

4. Passive Perk System

So, the Passive Perk System. What is it? How does it work? Why do we need it? Are you really the size of a mammoth? Don't worry everyone, I will detail everything for you guys here.

 

This started with a conversation between @Fusah and I about the title system. I'm not sure what brought it up, but Fusah made a comment that a progression system would be a pretty neat feature in Arma. About 20 minutes later, the basis for the Passive Perk System was born. It will work with our current title system, and a post will be made with the full list of perks that you can unlock after the goal is met. 

 

For example : 

 

Currently there are 5 titles for time spent on the server

 

A Whole New World - 1500 minutes on Civilian

Invested - 6000 minutes on Civilian

Dedicated - 15,000 minutes on Civilian

Committed - 30,000 minutes on Civilian

Addicted - 60,000 minutes on Civilian

 

 

Now, with the Passive Perk System, each title will unlock a Perk, which is a permanent buff to your player. 

 

 

A Whole New World - 1500 minutes on Civilian / 1% discount on all general store purchases

Invested - 6000 minutes on Civilian / 2% discount on all general store purchases

Dedicated - 15,000 minutes on Civilian / 3% discount on all general store purchases

Committed - 30,000 minutes on Civilian / 4% discount on all general store purchases

Addicted - 60,000 minutes on Civilian / 5% discount on all general store purchases

 

See how that works? Now, once you have unlocked the title, the perk will automatically apply to your player id. You do not need to wear the title to take full advantage of the perk. As a Staff, we worked closely with the Civilian Council, sAPD, and sR&R to come up with perks that would be appropriate for each title. 

 

Yes you heard that right, each faction has its own perk system. 

 

Alright guys and gals, that is it for this post. Just know that you are all beautiful, and each one of you are what makes Olympus AMAZING.

 

Feel free to comment below, and look for another post next month! :D 

 

- Pete

This sounds awesome! Good progression systems retain player-bases-- it will be great having long term goals to work for in game.

Loving the new ideas being thrown around. This is the kind of thing that puts Olympus apart from other communities and the reason why I've been a loyal supporter of it for 2 months now. Good work!

will this reset our titles

Nope. All perks are retroactive. 

 

This will be a nice buff to our more dedicated players. The "OG" guys should be pretty happy, amd it gives new players some incentives to try something new. Im really freaking excited for this.

5 different gangs fighting on 3 different servers, probably like 10v10 and there is an event going on , I haven't seen this on Olympus for almost a year 

You obviously don’t play enough, because every day I’m on I’ll do events
