What Would You Want Out of The Next Portal Event?

Recommended Posts

tower defense (houndious variants) against shadows maybe? aporkalypse related where you have to defend the portal from shadows that want to enter it and escape into the constant. of course you can control your characters maybe something like dungeon defenders or orcs must die

These events- were noted by Klei to not be worth the development costs they put into providing them, at Most they were a fun side experiment that Klei got to toy around with, but.. those events having limited time frames and having to go under certification process for Console gamers left much to be desired..

I think Gorge Content was only on consoles for about a week or two before being pulled, meanwhile the Forge has never been live on Console at all.. 

Klei instead choose to shift focus elsewhere by providing us with permanent content that will always be part of the game with Return of Them Updates, Character Reworks, Quality of Life Updates, & New Characters.
 

I prefer more permanent content over content that will only be in the game for a limited time only and then pulled to (mostly likely) never be seen again.

They could provide content that was part of those limited events as core permanent gameplay someday (such as adding an island location that adds forge mobs) But as far as limited time events go- I think that the only ones that Klei still plan to do are the Holiday Events

Namely Hallowed Nights (October) Wintersfeast (December) and Lunar New Year/Year of the- (January) 

But.. I do not work at Klei and only Klei staff knows what they have planned on their schedule, but personally speaking- I would much rather have permanent content, instead of limited ones like Gorge & Forge.

On a Side Note... and completely off-topic:

Spoiler

it feels Darn good to finally have my power and cable restored after being down due to the Hurricane knocking a tree down in my yard killing the power wires to my house (Haha Just my luck right?) I had to creatively place flashlights inside a glass cup to create a makeshift lantern to survive my two dark days.. heh, I guess Charlie had my world set to Lights Out Mode for a bit guys.. xD

1. We won't be getting another "portal event" cause those are not economically viable.

One cannot fathom the money Klei would be printing today if they were evil and decided to milk their players by selling monthly Forge-Gorge-New Event passes.

Was there something that showed how they got from the Gorge's portal back to the main Constant leading up to Return of Them?

I mean obviously it happened but I don't recall anything connecting the events.

No not really, the story was just dropped. All the characters from those events cease to exist.

To this day, I can still hear Mumsy's final words echoing through the Elder Bog's portal. "Billy and I'll follow soon behind, may we all leave this plague behind us. Good luck, kind strangers!" :frown-new:

I think it would be something sanity-based, since the forge was health and the gorge was hunger.

how blue moth said, sanity based
also did you noticed that every of these events is related to ",mob fractions"? (forge to pigs because pugma, goerge to merms because when you lose you are becoming one of them)
so i wanted based on sanity AND happening in spider realm so our webby boi would be fully accepted atleast there :3 oh and also there would be some item skins related to that world :D

Then we have vegans bunnymen. On a side note I want like a innocent faction vs evil faction? 

Like glommer, hutch, chester, critters and woby, with big foot as the leader vs klaus, deerclops, krampus

the forge and gorge reality is still out there unfinished.

RoT is an addition to the pre-event timeline.

and before somebody mentions them, the ornaments and all festive events are not canon.

What would you want out of a new Portal Event?

I remember my very old idea for an event. And I even had about six ideas for various events.
I would be happy if Klei created new events, because they specifically broke the thread with the gate so abruptly? So that if something happens, then go back to the events again? It seems logical to me.

It wasnt suddenly, they barely earned more money from the skins to keep the servers up

What I meant was that we weren't shown how the characters came back from the Ancient Gate and that the whole dimension story is over. Perhaps this is a special move to return the events one day.
