    Active Time Event and Hamlet Achievements

    So Hamlet will become an active time event where people can join on the fly.

    so, how will "DoL/DoH only" or "DoW/DoM only" achievements work now?

    They probably won't, it's more than likely going to be like Besieged and Campaign from XI, which was far superior in setup and fit the game's lore (XI) much more than Hamlet Defense did.

    I wonder how you would even get the right party setups if anyone could walk in and auto-join your party with these Active Time Events...

    probably you wont need party to join the events, as long you participate it by hitting the mob or doing something for the event, that it.

    But there is this:

    [0:22:47]
    Q: Will there be any changes to 8-man parties in A Realm Reborn? Will there be content for solo players or smaller parties?

    A: We’ll continue to add content like Skirmish that can be played in parties of four, and those that can be enjoyed without worrying about numbers.

    We are preparing content known as a “Full Active Time Event.” It borrows the words “active time” from the FINAL FANTASY series. I think this will be appearing very often in our PR activities from here on out.

    It will be difficult to explain the system without a video. For example, an NM pops. A notification of this is sent to all players in the zone, who then converge on the NM. Parties are automatically formed, and a battle begins. The NM is defeated, rewards are doled out, and the players go their separate ways.

    Things like Hamlet Defense and Caravan Security will be considered Full Active Time Events. With this system, many different things will take place in many different places. That’s how I’d like you to think of it for now.

    Players will be able to experience it in the Beta Test.

    Devil's in the details but it sounds a lot like what Tera does for Nexus for PUGs. It seems to work fine there.

    I believe FATE sounds like the new behests without the old games limits.

    Tera doesnt make use of crafting and gathering classes in nexus. (lol what crafting and gathering in TERA i kno rite...)

    But, I will try to be one of the first to participate in an lol hamlet party created by simply auto-grouping people in the area. Should be easy at R1.

    I'm so glad they're changing Hamlet...
    I mean, let's face it, that system was complete and utter garbage.
