As I was completing the EU Kikai event and discussing It, It occured to me that If we get the Kikai Event after its finished in EU (roughly two weeks) then it will conflict with E3, am I right? Both events would be running at the same time and I guess Im a bit concerned If NA servers would be able to handle 2 events of this magnitude at the same time. So I am hoping for several things:
That the servers are able to handle both events
That Kikai doesnt get held back or delayed because of E3 - we all know E3 is gonna happen no matter what
What are your thoughts on this?
I suspect that both events will run for two weeks so there should be plenty of time to complete each one. I did the EU event for the most part in one day yesterday with the help of friends. I suppose those who might be worried about the Kikai Machine leaderboards might be distracted by E3.
The advantage of having both running at the same time is that for those new users who come to Home for E3 they will get to see a pretty neat event running at the same time. Events like this don't happen too often so it might leave a good impression when it comes to Home and they might decide to stick around.
Relative to the servers I don't know enough about it to know if that might be an issue.
Are there leaderboard prizes?
Yes there are leaderboard prizes:
...although I doubt that having Kikai & E3 at the same time will cause any issues for people going for leaderboard prizes. It's not like they will be forced to stay at the E3 space for hours & hours.
I just don't see how E3 prevents people from going for leaderboar prizes.
