Coming soon - Escape from Tarkov in-game events!

Recommended Posts

Blackb1rd

We are happy to announce that soon we are going to launch the Escape from Tarkov Alpha in-game events involving both organized squads of players and randomly recruited teams.

We present to your scrutiny several scenarios that the course of events is going to follow.
 

Developer hunt

A group of developers is deployed on the map, valuable loot in their backpacks and formidable weapons in their hands. They have a limited amount of time to escape from location through the waves of Scavs controlled by players. Players who want to participate are going to wait in line for their turn to jump into the game and hunt down developers and each other in attempt to grab hold of a valuable loot.


Escort

Up to three developers enter the location together with players. The devs are equipped with heavy armor and backpacks full of valuables, but armed with Makarov only. They proceed to walk out of the location, and players have to escort them to exit. At the same time the player Scavs are attacking the convoy, trying to snatch the backpacks with loot. If the convoy successfully reaches the destination - devs drop the backpacks as the reward to the escorting players.


Search

Several players and one developer enter the map, and dev proceeds to plant - in some covert place - a backpack with valuable loot, consequently leaving the location, while the players' task is to find that backpack and claim whatever is inside.
 

These are preliminary conditions of these three scenarios. Please feel free to comment, express your ideas about these scenarios and suggest your own - we'll be sure to carefully consider all of them and think through the possibility of their implementation!

Sounds great. When will this happen, and if it does, on what hours, or is it now and then 24-7?

Hiya Blackb1rd. Very awesome idea! How do you plan on preventing this to become a free for all event? Because you know that a lot of players will be triggerhappy and start shooting their teammates to get their grubby hands on that sweet loot.

Also, how about a game of hide and seek on woods. The devs themselves hide and the scavs have to find them. If they find them, and kill them, they will get their bag of treats.

Will players in odd timezones to the devs get access? I'm in Australia and would love to have a shot at killing/protecting a dev. :D

We will try to do everything so that players from different time zones can participate in the events.

Dev VIP mode. One or two devs need to escort another dev(who has both legs destroyed and have to almost crawl to the extraction + only have a pistol to defend themselves with). The job of the guards is to..guard the VIP obviously, while the other players hunt them.

Not sure how this would work when there are a limit of players per session, and that they could just camp the extraction. But it would be fun nonetheless.

Hey @Blackb1rd , but the loot we will get if (when ;)) we hunt the devs.... will be lost on the next big patch reset?

 

Great idea anyway to get the community active :)

And question here:

Event Escort - What happens if escorting team killed their VIP and robbed them? Will be here some punishment for team killing?

Will there be special lobbies for this so that players know what they are queuing up for?
