  1. Greetings everyone, As you already saw, the voting for the Transmog and Drawing contest has been closed. We now also have counted all the votes and chosen the winners for this years halloween events. First of all, i want to thank each and every one of you for taking part in it, no matter if you draw one of the incredible pieces of art, dressed your character and searched for a spooky location, participated in our in game event or just stopped by to admire the submitted pieces and vote for your favorite ones. Every participation is highly appreciated. Thanks! Now, as for the winners: Following you can find the results of the votes for the Drawing contest as well as the prices: And the winners and prices of the Transmog contest: At all the winners: Please contact Milanova#7263 on discord so your prize can be given to the account of your choosing. Again, even if you are not one of the winners i want to very warmly thank all of the participants and submissions. There were so many great contributions that it was hard for us to only pick 3 winners. However, now that we talked about the winners, we wanted to address some points about the votes. All the votes that were cast in the staff team were taken anonymously, no one of the staff team knew if one of the participants was one of his/her colleagues. Sadly, the community votes were a little bit different. In the community votes, we found (and got complaints about) some of the votes being given as a "friendship service", meaning that players voted for their guild members or friend to give them a boost in the event. Obviously, our goal with the community votes was to find out which contribution the community liked the most, not to see who can get the most players to vote for their submission. Since we already announced the community votes, and tracing every cast vote to check for those "unfair" votes, we decided to keep those votes this time, and reward all the participants in the way the community has voted. To hopefully make the outcome of this event more neutral, we luckily have the staff votes category that didn't experience that problem. With all that being said, we heard all the complaints being made and have decided to act about them in the future. Sadly, we most likely won't have community votes in the future, and the outcome of events will be decided by the staff only. This way, we can prevent any kind of unfair advantages in votes through guild members or friends. Again, we were hoping to reward the players that put the most effort into their contribution and had the best submissions fitting the theme/topic. We didn't want to have a "popularity contest". I'm sorry for everyone that participated fairly and got a disadvantage this time, and the next time we won't allow this to happen. With all this out of the way, we very much thank everyone again for taking the time to post their transmogs and drawings, and we hope we can repeat (similar) events in the future! We hope to see you soon in more of our events, and i hope everyone enjoyed this one! Thank you, and take care!
  2. Greetings everyone, after one week of community voting, we're going to lock the votes and will begin to evaluate the results. The final results (Staff and Community votes) will be available in the next days, between the 15th and the 17th. We're going to try to provide them as soon as possible. As soon as the final winners are chosen, we will create a new post to announce them. Thank you for participating and voting in this event, take care and have a great start into the week! Kind Regards, Game Master Zhophis Firestorm International Team

    Greetings everyone, a very warm (and spooky!) thank you to all of you for the amazing and numerous contributions to our transmog contest. Since we have reached the end of the timeframe for new screenshots, we will lock this post and shortly begin voting on all of your awesome submissions. I hope we will be able to agree on only a few winners, with all those great transmogs all of you sent! The effort and time that you've spent on your Halloween costume is greatly appreciated, and we'll announce the winners as soon as the voting is over - if we are able to agree. The results should be available between the 15th and 17th of November. Again, thank you all for your contribution to this event, and happy Halloween! Kind Regards, Game Master Zhophis Firestorm International Team
  6. Important Note: The Recruit a Friend system is not available on 8.3, and the client would require a complicated fix for it to work again. The Recruit a Friend system was removed with 8.3 and is not available anymore on this version! Hello! We wanted to write this post because the question if this system is working and how to set it up is coming up a lot of times. The point of this post is to give players information about the Recruit a Friend system in game, and also provide a guide on how to set it up. This guide is only for the BFA expansion on the Sethraliss realm, and was written during the 8.2.0 patch. If there are issues with the setup process, we are happy to provide support in game if you contact us with a ticket there. Outdated Bonuses: First of all, before we get into the details of the setup, it's worth to mention that the in game Interface does not provide the correct information about the rewards. The RaF reward information from the game is from legion. The main differences are: - No legendary reward (There are no legendary items for the BFA expansion) - No Artifact power bonus (Artifact power got removed with the introduction of BFA) - No Nethershards bonus (Nethershards are a currency only for Legion) - No Loot bonus (This is also connected to the legendary items from Legion) Current Bonuses: You will currently get the following bonuses from the System: - 50% bonus experience for the characters (When they are close to each other and in a group) - 10% bonus to the reputation gained (When close to each other and in a group) - Summon each other (The character summoned needs to be below level 89, and in a group) - The recruit can gift levels to characters of the recruiter (for levels that he obtained with him - this might not work for you though, since it requires some additional requirements) The recruiter will get to choose a reward when the recruit character hits level 120. This reward only works if the character is leveled without a boost (Boris or from the shop)! To obtain these bonuses, the recruit system has to be set up properly, so here's a guide on how to do it: Requirements: There are some requirements for the system to work: - A level 110 character that can send the invitation to an email - Not more than 10 accounts already recruited on this account - You can't recruit your recruiter. The recruit can invite other accounts, but not the same account that he is linked to as recruit. Everything else you need is the email of your friend. How to set up the Recruitment: 1. Open your friend list on a Character that is at least level 110. 2. Click on the "Recruit a Friend" button on the top right. 3. Enter the E-mail address of your friend. (Important: Enter an email and also a text in the field below! - fill out both fields, also the note!) 4. Your friend should receive an email that contains a link to sign up or connect his existing account. (We recommend gmail.com emails, there are some providers that have issues with receiving the invitation mail. For example hotmail.com.) If there are problems with the delivery of the email we unfortunately can't provide support. The email system can't be individually managed and the only solution is to try it again, or with a different email. 5. Create an account or link an existing one. 5.1 I don't have an account yet - This sends your friend to a page where he can register a firestorm account. 5.2 I already have an account - This will open a page to link a logged in account. The existing Firestorm (homepage) account should be logged in on that browser. 6. On the recruit account (the newly created or linked one) a new character has to be created. (This can't be a Death Knight or Demon Hunter, since they start with a higher level) 7. The newly created character needs to be marked as recruit character. When logged in with that character, go into ESC - Firestorm and use the "Activate" button. This is it! You can confirm that it is working in the ESC - Firestorm interface. The recruit should see the character of the recruiter that is logged in, and the recruiter will see when the recruit character is logged in. View as the Recruit (with an online character from the recruiter account): View as the Recruiter (with an online recruit character): When you see each other in this interface, everything is set up properly! If you are in a group together and close to each other, the bonuses will get activated and you will also see a buff as confirmation: For each recruit that reaches level 120, the recruiter will get the option to pick a reward from a list that can be opened with a button next to the RaF button in the friend list (Only the recruiter gets this option. The recruit only gets the in game bonuses.) And that's all. Thank you for reading and I hope this guide will be able to help players to set up the system properly. If there are any issues with the system, please feel free to write a ticket in game and we will help to sort out all problems. We hope you will be able to enjoy your journey on Firestorm with your friends, and as always: Have a nice time in game!
