A Stage Reborn opened registrations for a unique contest that awards players with subscription time in FINAL FANTASY XIV.
The collective A Stage Reborn made headlines recently for organizing and presenting a theatrical production in FINAL FANTASY XIV. Not only did we help spread the word of the event, but we also sat down with part of the group to have a chat about the game’s community. Now, nearly a month after I Want to be Your Canary was presented to wide acclaim, ASR introduces another event that involves the community more than before.
Titled “Me-te-or”, the event is described by Wanderer Sabaku as “a sort of ‘Eorzea’s Got Talent’ style competition” where the stream/talk show held by the group, titled A Stage Reborn LIVE!, will visit servers other than Diabolos (ASR’s home world) across all data centers. “Players will be given the opportunity to hop on our live broadcast stream on select days for each server and perform their talent”, Sabaku, who is known as Steve Pederzani in real life, describes in the forum thread announcing the event. The top prize is a year worth of game time cards, which provide 60 days of game time when retrieved at Mog Station.
It may sound odd to have a talent competition held within an online game, but seeing as how A Stage Reborn managed to dazzle the community with a theatrical production, there’s no reason why this wouldn’t work. As pointed out by Sabaku, “We have a lot of stuff at our disposal in the game that let us do neat things. From transformation macros to in-game theatre and more, players can come with all kinds of creative displays.” Additionally, the live broadcast will make use of Discord so that those wishing to use their own voice whilst performing in-game can do so without trouble.
More details on the contest (which will be held throughout the year of 2017) and details such as the cross-data center aspect can be found on the official announcement thread. Those wishing to participate may register through the application page and make sure to read the rules as well as answer the survey that will determine which data centers and servers A Stage Reborn will visit.
